There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Well I would like to know what other version of Gnutella client software you are using that gives you better results than LW. Because for one I thought that I had an do use them all and I continueally get better results with LW than any other. As for the free version getting better results than Pro it is pretty well known that LW Pro and the free version are pretty much the same. I use Pro and do get slightly better results with it than I do on the free version. The reason for buying the Pro version is pretty simple since if you read the reviews and post in the forums you would know that the free vesion and the Pro version are virtually the same with Pro you get 5 connectons instead of 4 when connecting in Leaf mode. So why buy Pro unless you want slightly better results and to support the LW staff who are working all the time on fixing bugs and upgradeing LW I guess they should do it because you want them to. I myself appriciate the work they do. My guess is you either do not have LW configured right or you dont have as good of internet service as your friends do. Why dont you compare LW Pro and the free version on your computer and see what the results are and while you are at it go ahead and try BS, W/MX,SHREZA,Etc rember to remove the spyware when you finsh, Remember these progrms have to be paid for somehow.

For crying out loud, i'm not bitching nor am i complaining. I must emphisise fully, I am well aware of my PC and internet configuration aswell as my friends. I know of the turbo charged issue, (obviously) what i'm saying is even with the pro version, which your saying techically provides more search results, considering it's connected to more, let me say that again, I KNOW OF THE ISSUE. What i'm saying is that even in so called ''turbo charged'' status it's retrieving alot less than any other Gnutella client that i have tried, (nothing to do with my connection) (working great) (2mb symetrical bandwidth) PC- (64-bit Athlon Winchester 1.8ghz 512kb catche, 512mb of Geil ram) my friends is the same because I built the thing. Try it and find out instead of not really understanding my critisism.

I have tried it and they are all loaded on my system,I have the ability to run 3 diffrent clients at once and 75% of the time LW will come up with more results than the others. When running in ultrapper mode when I get above 40 connections no other client can compare it will usually take a hour or so to get to that point and there are times that it will not get that high.So I know what each of them will do. Like I said try it out on your computer and compare them sids by side I think you will find the same thing that I did there are times the others will show more results but I have found that even at these times I will get more connections from LW and will download at more KBs most of the time.
