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 [4.9.11] Window Size Issue and Tray Function Issue

Running KDE 3.4.2 on SuSE 9.3 Pro at 1280x1024.

1. Since somewhere around the releast of 4.8, whenever I start Limewire the width is fine (maximized), but the hieght is just slightly too short. Consequently, the window is slightly up off the task bar at the bottom. I can maximize it, but the same thing happens next time I start Limewire. Not major, but an annoying bug none the less.

2. Anytime Limewire closes to the systray, it leaves its presence on the taskbar AND creates the icon in the tray. Limewire should remove itself from the taskbar when closing to the systray.

Thanks,

DrSuSE

Yes, I've also have found the window sizing issue to be a bit of an annoyance... I'm also at 1280x1024, however my window is also not maximized for width, nor with hieght... window is docked at the top & left, having a tad of space at bottom & right.

From personal experience I found that LimeWire residing in the Task bar and the launch area has been more of an Operating System Problem not related to LimeWire per se....

I did a Windows Restore to before the problem started and resolved my issues.

Is it possible to fix this?

Only really possible if the Limewire devs have decided they don't want to follow standards for operation in Linux.

Question Sizing bar gone and Mislabeled Bandwidth Indicator

Hey everyone,

I too am quite pleased with how 4.9.11 has turned out, and also enjoy the new splash screen.

However, I really liked the ability in 4.8.x and prior to resize the sub-windows to show what I want to see. The sizing bar is still there for going between downloads and search results, but it is now missing between the search bar and the search results. Now more of the information I like to view is out of my screen size, and I need to resize something else or scroll quite a bit. Just a little functionality that was greatly used before...

Also I just noticed a little typo in the options screen under the new Status Bar location: in the Bandwidth Indicator portion, you can select or deselect showing the BI, but the text is asking if you want to show your Firewall Indicator (which is two options above the BI). Just a small thing... but new users might be wondering if that does anything at all when it is mislabeled.

Thanks and keep up the amazing work!

Looks like the tray problem is still evident in Beta release v4.9.16. I still see both the taskbar button and the tray icon on minimize. However if I choose the "Exit After Transfers" option then Limewire successfully minimizes to the tray only.

An option within Limewire to disable the tray icon completely would be great. Since I use the kdocker utility on KDE I would rather let this control my system tray icon because it also lets me choose a custom tray icon.

You can disable the tray functionality by setting Limewire to "Shutdown Immediately."

The window size issue is still just an annoying issue not affecting functionality, so I guess it is low priority to the dev team.

Thanks,

Wow... actually... as of 4.9.16 I cannot get the tray icon functionality to turn off... This is hugely annoying, why would I want it to be there when I am looking at Limewire. Ugh.
