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 LimeWire 4.9.13 Beta

The LimeWire 4.9.13 beta has been released. You can download the free version from the LimeWire download page. PRO users can download the beta from their personal download page.

This beta includes changes that should address the network disconnects and general reliability of LimeWire:

* several memory leaks were fixed, so LimeWire should not crash if left running for a long period of time
* some experimental changes to address the network disconnects
* various small optimisations here and there.

Keep in mind that while this aims to increase the reliability of LimeWire, a lot of new code was added; using this version may be a rocky ride. If you were happy if 4.9.11 you should stick to that, if you choose to update to 4.9.13 be prepared for oddities and frequent upgrades as we hammer down any bugs that we find. It is very likely we'll have one or two updates as soon as tomorrow.

If you do choose to run this beta, be sure that we appreciate your efforts. Give it hell, try to break it in any way you can, and have fun !!!

Memory usage is down 20 percent using 4.9.13 verses 4.9.11 in Leaf mode with one download and 2 uploads going so far so good

I appreciate the new efforts toward reduced memory consumption - shows that you care

For those who are on os x 10.4 and have an ADC account, the new java update DP2 reduces by a large amount the number of java crashes so far, so if you are a betatester, you might want to use that version of Apple java. I have yet to find if it fixes the VMemory problem on os x though.

i havent really noticed much of an improvement.. maybe im not testing it in a much controlled fasion, but anyways, limewire still loves to notify me that files are corrupted if i start heavy downloading. ~10+ at a time.

i also noticed that limewire starts off great with bandwidth usage to near maxed out, but slowly deteriorates the connections and slows down.

before starting downloads limewire was stable at around ~75K of ram, then it went up to ~110K during downloads, then went to ~95K after downloads completed.

im sharing 88 files exactly now with LW as an UP.

i have not noticed any network disconnections, i dont think i have had that problem. i havent been looking for them either. but i did notice sources seem to be dropping from 14 to 4 throughout the process of downloading. then dropping down to only one at the end of the download (but i think i have always seen it drop to one at the end of the download.) the rest of the dropping of sources were during the whole span of the download process. other than that i can say that i have not noticed any network disconnections, but i will be looking for them now.

General Observations.

Bandwith usage much much better. The only time I've noticed peaks or spikes in bandwith usage is on starting as a UP, or switiching from Leaf to UP. This only last 1 to 2 minutes, which I consider very reasonable.

Search results also seem to be about the same now in Leaf and UP, although it does take longer as a UP to reach the same results.

Memory usage seems about the same on startup, and slowly increases during d/l and u/l, but stabilizes, and decreases when they have finished. Much improved.

Download speeds have returned to there normal of what I expect from multiple and single host, as well as u/l speeds.

Just a side note: Raza and BearShare newer version clients also provided reasonable d/l speeds.

Default What's the latest Mac beta?

I am running 4.9.11. VersionTracker reports a newer, 4.9.12. This forum reports 4.9.13 (though doesn't specify for which platform). The download beta link on my download page has disappeared. An email to LimeWire Pro support remains unanswered for 24 hours.

What's the latest version, please, and how do I get it?
