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 Upload limit not working

Posting in beta section becuase everybody else has run out of ideas to try. I can set the upload limit down to 12KB/s and it will still hit 45. When it hits about 45 it knocks all my downloads offline. With 5mb down and 512k up I should be able to hold 38KB/S fine. When I can find the sources I can hold 350KB/s down if uploads behave. Ultrapeers is off. Currently set at 4 slots 12KB/s. Not sharing partial files.I have ran a complete virus scan with f-prot and at trendmicro both come back clean. I have removed and reinstalled java from a different source.

FC432bit
LW4.10.9(started with 4.10.3 and 4.10.5)
Java 1.5.06

Any ideas?

There was a version a while back that had that problem. But I have not seen it in a while try running 1 slot.

Halcyon, your problem seems strange to me and one I certainly have never encountered. I suggest deleting your preference folder while Limewire is COMPLETELY closed. see this thread for more information:-

Fixes for Limewire when LW isn't operating as it should

Let us know if this helps

Halcyon

I have been able to keep my downloads online by dropping my upload limit down to 12KB/s(which actually keeps them below about 38KB/s). It is sad (comunity wise) that the upload limit will not "hold" well enough to allow for full bandwidth uploads, but it seems to work.

I am trying gtk-gnutella but it is pretty slow. Finds obscure files very well. I would try my suggestion for a week or so and see how it works. If you do switch and find something good please let me know.

Thanks

Cable

T1&T3 do not allow you to got below 50 KB/s(I do not remeber exactly but it is higher than I can afford) on the upload limit.

Thanks

Try deleting you .limewire folder and see if that helps.

Never mind I see you already tried that. Have you tried uninstalling then deleting your limewire file in C:/Documents and settings/user name/application data.

I see you have tried allot of things but it seems to me it has to be a preference settings problem due to the fact that it is carrying over to every version you install. Be warned when you do this you will loose all of your current incomplete downloads and I do not know that it will fix your problem either. Like I said earlier there was a prior version that had this problem but the next version fixed it for me.

Hope it fixes the problem if it doesn't I do not know what else to suggest.
