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.

Grandpa .. My feeling is that someone ****ed up. Surely the official release of 4.9.30 beta should be 4.9.31

and a lot of people are having problems upgrading to 4.9.30 pro. Are these two things connected?

the 4.9.30 is a beta version, but is being released as an service update to the public. so it is technically the official version. there is no 4.9.31 release of any sort yet. the developer(s) are trying to structure the network right now, so if people would update to these versions faster, everything would progress alittle better. some features of the new versions will need alot of the network to be updated to work correctly. this will soon be true for DHT too. the 4.9.30 version sorts out the UP situation. the gnutella network has too many Ultrapeers. now im not saying to disable Ultrapeer abilities in limewire, but the new ultrapeer requirements have been set alittle higher now to increase the density of the network (basically making the searches return faster and more results.) this keeps the network from being so spread out and puts everybody real close to each other.

The one you can download from the beta page has beta notifications enabled by default. We figured that people that downloaded the beta version would be interested in receiving notifications about new betas.

From what I could see, this has been true since at about version 4.9.28 which also had me wondering.

Ultracross said "so if people would update to these versions faster, everything would progress alittle better."

I notice the huge number of old and very old versions being used, and it seems the average user who comes nowhere near the forums has no idea of the updates available, or has no reason to want to change.

I have always been confused by the notification preferences/options, and do not seem to always receive them even if they are selected.

How to get the average network user to keep up to date is sothing that may not be that easy.

Sorry no answers ..... just a thought or two ...

pro users dont receive them if zab doesnt want them to yet.

i think he will send pro users the update message when they get a pretty good final version out of the 4.9 series. then move on to 5.0 betas! oh what fun!

regarding in-network updates: the update system has all been stream-lined for the basic versions (4.9.xx, i cant remember exactly what version it was enabled in.). so when a user connects to the network, he will automatically download the installer. then limewire will tell him he should update with a popup. the installation is very smooth and requires only a few seconds and is the whole process is entirely without user-intervention. (besides pressing update now on the popup.) so if everyone atleast updates to 4.9.30, they will be auto-updated (or agressively nagged to update) on every release.

I was about to dload Limewire when an "Internet Explorer Security Warning" poped-up and said:


Name: LimeWireWin.exe
Publisher: Publisher Unknown

This file does not have a valid digital signature that verifies its publisher. You should only run software from publishers you trust.


What does this mean and is it common? Also what's the difference between the basic and beta versions?

You need to read the forum rules you are not supposed to make multiple post on the same thread. Doing so will only irritate the senior members and will most likely result in getting no response to your question so please read the Forum Rules. The link below will take you there.

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/announ...p?s=&forumid=7

I am going to be nice and answer you questions this time but please don't do it again or I or anyone else will probably not answer you. As far as the message you are receiving about digital signatures that is a windows warning telling you that the file cannot be verified by windows and windows does not know if it is safe or not. The link below will take you to the official site please get LAW there. It is safe if you get it from there.

http://www.limewire.com/english/content/download.shtml

As far as the difference between Basic and Pro. With Pro in Leaf mode you get 5 connections and Basic you get 4. Thus you theoretically get 20% more search results More search results = more possible connections = greater download speeds.

With Pro you are allowed to have 10 connections when downloading, With basic you allowed 8. Thus 10 = potentially greater download speeds than 8. 10 X KB/s = KB/s 8 X KB/s = KB/s

If you are on dial-up or any other type of slow connection there is really no noticeable difference as far as your speed goes because you don't have the ability to take advantage of the speeds that Lime Wire is capable of getting.

I use Pro because the developers of LAW are continually working to improve the program and I believe they deserve our support.

Thank You Grandpa.

There wasn't any intended malice on my part. When I saw how infrequent responses were for each post, I copied and pasted my post twice more as sort-of a backup plan. I understand, I've learned my lesson and I'm humbled by your quick response. :^]

Thanks again.
