Moderators

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.

Default Beta testers - turn on "Beta Releases"

Greetings,

we are about to test a new update distribution mechanism for LimeWire tonight. If you are running LimeWire 4.9.2 Beta or higher, please go to Options -> Updates and select "Beta Releases".

Within the next 24 hours you may get a message prompting you to upgrade to 4.9.5. Let us know if you do, and how the upgrade went.

Thanks a lot!

P.S. beta 4.9.5 will also be available from the website, but please don't download it just yet - help us test this update thing at least for a day. Your patience is appreciated.

Do you remember if you restarted limewire anywhere between 6:30PM EST and the time you received the notification? We found a bug where the update only works if limewire hasn't been restarted.

If you are feeling adventurous and want to help us test this out better here's what you can do:

1. Turn of "Connect on Startup"
2. Shut down LimeWire
3. delete the Documents and Settings\<user name>\.limewire\version.xml file
4. delete the Documents and Settings\<user name>\.limewire\.NetworkShare directory
5. start LimeWire, but don't connect yet - let it load all shared files
6. connect to the network.

What should happen is LimeWire asking you to restart itself upgrading to a new version. Let us know if it works.

Thanks for the help!

actually, this is what i did lol:

earlier today i was browsing around in options and noticed that i forgot to check the beta release box and did so. (this is how i also found the license bug i posted in the 4.9.3 beta topic) i didnt restart just yet untill a few hours later when i saw your post., but i never received the update message untill i restarted it.

but anyways, this is what i have found after following your instructions:

a new version.xml is saved with new version info upon connection. but does not display the prompt untill AFTER i restart it again.

limewire does not ask me to restart limewire in any scenario.

it also sends me to the download page if i press update now (i didnt notice this before.):

Ok, missed one step - delete the Documents and settings\<user name>\.limewire\.NetworkShare. That should cause LimeWire to re-download the update and give you the correct prompt.

(the steps in the above post have been updated for anyone else wishing to try this)

Just a thought: what about security and the in network updating? I've always been wary of upgrade notifications in the past on LW: what certifies you there is no false signal spreading letting you know that a real new version is available? I believe this is even more important in the new update schema: you could be induce to spread a LW version containing a trogan or any other worm/virus run by the LW installer following the in-network download? The old schema was redirecting you to the download adress, so you were sure of the source, what about now? Playing a bit of the devil's advocate right now, but a vulnaribility is the last thing LW needs right now, especially at the speed the in-network updates can spread in the LW subnet. Anyway, you guys probably found a technique to do it safely, but I feel bringing the possible issue could at least put the things clear.

Merci

The old update message as well as the new upgrade mechanism are protected using LimeWire's private key. They are, in fact, the same message - if you look at ~/.limewire/version.xml you will see that both the update URNs and the website URL are contained in the same document.
