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.

Hrmph. 1GB of RAM should be enough, and the W2k limit on threads is really very high, so there's no good reason you should be running out of space. All those clients may be using a large amount, but I kinda doubt they'd be using up so much space that you wouldn't be able to create a new thread. Does this error occur often? If so, does it happen if you close your other programs? The error could have an effect on download speed with LW, as right now (in the released versions) it uses a different thread for each source it's downloading from, so if it can't create the thread then it can't download from that source (and can't swarm and raise the speeds as high as it should).

Well, the crashes do not happen that often, let's say every two or tree days once or twice. Since yesterday I've suspended ond closed Boinc. I'm at the moment in a fierce discussion with my ISP, from which I get quite contrary statements in regard to them shaping my bandwidth ranging from denying to confirming, to not being sure if this is being implemented according to their contract rules (I spent 2 hours on the phone yesterday, ending up with not more than I knew before). I'm wondering, is there any way I could measure or test whether they really are shaping my bandwidth? I've made some screen shots from my task manager and from LW but I am not really sure what the information there hint at. Would you mind taking a look at them??

I've just made another screen shot of my Task manager about the networking.
Now I'm wondering, the peaks reach almost 100% for my adsl runner but the Network utilization is not more than 20%. Could that be the sign that my ISP shaping my bandwidth of about 80% ?????

Since my last post from yesterday I've done some things which I now wonder whether they are suitable for other LW users with similar problems?!?
Two days ago, when doing my 1st screen shot of the LW client, I had roughly 0-1kb/s with a "turbo charged' connection (like it was for the last couple of weeks).
And while reading yesterday some of the replies to speed problems and connection problems I used an advice of LOTR to change the listening port from 6346 to 64049 and make a manual port fowarding instead of UPnP.
Furthermore, I got interested in the 'Phex' client by chance and visited their website including their wiki. There I stumbled into tips for optimizing 'Phex' from someone namend Mike (may the Lord bless you:-)). Since I thought what might be good for this program can't hurt for LW, I became specifically interested in his first tip:

1. It appears that Microsoft (if you're using Windows XP this applies to you, otherwise skip to the next one) has decided to limit the number of consecutive connections to the internet to 10. For most users this is fine but when you have a P2P it can bottleneck things. http://trustyfiles.com/help-sw-xpsp2.php discusses this more in-depth and provides a link to a small utility file which will allow you to edit how many connections you have. I set mine at 100 since the max supported by Phex is 99.

Well, I followed the link and downloaded the small utility and used it.
The result of doing so, since yesterday I've been able to get (at least) 20-30KB/s, as you can see in the screen shot.
And now my question to the developer of LW. Do you think this increase of KB's is just incidentely lucky for my specific case, or do you believe that other users could also profit from using this nice small utility???

The patch has been around for a while but it doesn't really make a difference until you get up into the 100s of KB/s. The thing that most likely mad a difference is the port forwarding to port 64049. When you did this and got more bandwidth it tells me that your ISP is most likely blocking or filtering the lower ports. Or your UPnP wasn't working correctly. Now if you want to find out if your ISP is blocking or filtering set your router to port forward to 6346 and limewire to port 6346. If your bandwidth drops down again you will know it is your ISP. If it doesn't then it was the configuration of you UPnP.
