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 4.9.24 so far so good

I have been running 4.9.24 for about 13 hrs now no major issues other than my own mistakes.
I have been running as a UP after I finally got port forwarding to work I do not know why it went Arri when I installed 4.9.24 but for some reason it did. Currently have 32 peers/ 17 levees connected. Search results good DL good 550+ 17 simultaneous DL all completed on first search and 3 only had 1 source showing on search but connected to 2 sources. Only 1 corrupt file.
Just curious I have read that the corrupt file issue has to do with the way that LW writes the file to disc. Is it possible that the reason fore this is that LW tries to write faster than the CPU can write them to disc. The reason I am thinking this is because normally when I am not testing and being a hog I never see a corrupt file message since I installed the 2 Fujitsu SCSI ultra 320 in 0-raid. Before I installed them I would get the message occasionally.
Any way memory usage 77MB not bad bus lesser machines may still have problems with that amount. Still haven't tested in Leaf mode so I don't know what that is going t be yet.
I think I am going to switch over to XP 64 for a while and do some testing on the corrupt file thing since 64 is about 20% at writing to disc than XP.

Hi I've just registered but have been using LW since 4.8.1.After d/l all subsequent beta's, to say it has been a bit of a rollercoaster is an understatement. However as far as i am concerned, I agree with Grandpa, all is running pretty smooth at the moment (connection drops were my main problem) Keep up the good work you guys.

Limewire has never not worked for me, so I gotta agree with both guys above... I dunno how you guys do it, but with each new release I always find something better in it! Thanks, and I want to be a Beta test! LOL!

I have been running in Leaf for about 12 hrs now using port forward 6346 still have the same problem of having to reset the router speed test dropped from 570kb DL & 45kb UL to 90kb DL & 45kb UL. I no longer believe this is a UPnP issue due to the fact that I have not run in UPnP for the last 24hrs. LW was still able to DL at 500+ even after speed test said 90kb DL but INTERNET and gaming came to a crewel normally it takes about 2sec for a page to load and it was taking 15 to 30sec. I did not notice any real difference in my CPU speed opening programs and using them I did some photo editing with Adobe photoshop CS 2 on a 11mb tiff photo to check CPU performance an there was no noticeable difference in performance. After resetting router all is fine speed test back to normal Internet back to normal.
Any way search results good DL good 500+ on groups of 15 to 20 simultaneous DL and I did allot of DL of rare files surprisingly no corrupt files and all completed. I did have one fle that was 98% complete and when saying need more sources and when I hit resume went back to 0% and started over more on that in the link below. Memory usage was a little bit higher than I normally see in Leaf 68MB but that could have to do with the number of searches I did and # of files DL 200.
I did not have any Idle disconnect problems this time when I got up this morning it showed LW had 1 connection for 12hrs and the other 4 connected within a few seconds of waking it up.
In conclusion 4.9.24 has had the least amount of problems for me that I have seen in a while. Keep it up guys and I will do my best to try and break it looking forward to the next beta.

Everything is running very good but I have yet to test LW as an Ultra Peer with beta version 4.9.24
Grandpa I was wondering does Limewire force you to reboot your router a lot a lot being more than once a day in Ultra Peer mode?

So far I haven't had to reset in UP mode. But I do not know why I will have to do further test and see if I can force the issue it appears to be more common of a problem when I run in UPnP mode verses port forwarding when running in UPnP at times I have to reset every hour or so.

I am running a Linksys WRT54GS which is a wireless router and runs well and almost never have to reboot it unless I am running as an Ultra Peer which would be at least a few times a week depending or how long I run Limewire which is usally at least 15 hours a day and while I am sleeping

I have a WRT54G with speedbooster and I'm running an UP 24/24, never have to reset the router, FYI. But the computer running LW is not connected to it via wireless but with ethernet. I have also the latest linksys firmware, which can be a factor.

Ciao

I'm not sure the difference between the G and the GS I do not have the speed booster model but everything else is probably close to identical with those routers
