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.

I just tested and the browser calls are not working on windows. All the things that use browser call are affected (things mentionned earlier) and it doesn't matter if either Firefox or IE is the default browser. Justin? Dave?

Are you sure it can also launch multimedia files in windows? Someone using LW 4.9.20 can't seem to get their video players to launch: Trouble previewing video files...

2. Clicking "Revert to Default" in the Options window now reverts A L L setting to DEFAULTING wiping out ALL library preferences, connection speed, etc. I mean they are ALL changed.

The standard Limewire, at any rate in OSX does this as I found out at my expense amonth or so back ... so this is nothing new but I do wish they would change it or put up a second chance warning. `In New features requests I was promised it would be looked into

I'm taking a break from Beta for a day or three as 19 was giving me what I thought were problems, so I'm checking how things work on 4.8.1 so I'm sure I know what I'm talking about!

None taken HOBO. I need a break from these BETA's too. Seems the more bugs we report the more we find. I believe it used to be referred to as the "Peter Principal". You take a good thing and promote it one step above efficiency and instead of backing it back down one step you go one step higher to greater inefficiency.

I'm not sure I have the computer know how to test a beta efficiently, but ordinary people will be using the product so I guess my input should be valuable. I'll make some time and get back soon. Take care

1. Double clicking .avi, .mov or divx files no longer activates the default movie viewer as it did in the past. Now the player/viewer must be activated and the file found.



What do you mean by player/viewer must be activated and the file found?

As mentioned by et voila, there was a fairly major bug in the launching of native file (only on Windows) in 4.9.20. This bug was introduced inadvertently during the implemention of a feature requested by another beta tester, and we've moved on to 4.9.21, which seems very solid so far.

I don't want to sound like a broken record, but we are rapidly converging on a near-bug-free version.

We are tremendously grateful for everyone's dedication so far. We've come a long way since 4.9.0!
