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 first discovered empty lines when I copied some files worked with in Apple's TextEdit into an old 3rd party app called Tex-Edit Plus. This was when I first realised TextEdit causes problems. So for the connection files (when I remember) I usually copy into Tex-Edit Plus to find the empty lines & remove. I ended up doing this for the hostiles earlier.
Reason why:

When I used Notepad++ in Win 8 to convert to unix/osx, I noticed at the end of the large hostiles that the first array of the ip address ended up on the previous line with I think it was a (E) or something before it.

Example:
255.255.0/25255.
255.255.128/26255.
255.255.192/27255.
255.255.224/28255.
255.255.240/29255.
255.255.248/30255.
255.255.252/31255.
255.255.25522

This was the first time I ran the operation. An edited smaller version of the hostiles I did a few mins ago did not have the same issue. Converted from CR to LF.
First time, I Selected All before the operation. I suspect that might have caused the problem.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

Though my Tex-Edit Plus effort should also have removed the empty lines in the last update I did several hours ago called V3. (There was a chance I missed a blank line or two.) But it is still in CF & not LF.

I don't know about the problem, it may have been just a rare problem (BWT you do NOT need to select, it operate on the entire file but you need to save after the conversion).

Once the EOL are fixed if you use only a good text editor it should preserve EOL as they are and it should NOT create empty lines in the first place.
Notepad++ always preserve EOL as they are, it will change them only if you request it.

An AS forum recommended I use TextWrangler instead of TextEdit because it will not suffer the same problems & has far better applescript support & can run scripts directly (I'm guessing in similar way to how Notepad++ might be able to run script or program code.)

The other text program I started using occasionally from last year is called Sublime Text 2. It's advantages are that it preserves formatting & preserves MacOSX permissions of the file. But I normally use this for editing code (with exception of putting the host-file in reverse order. ie: some gnutella apps read the host-file from bottom-up due to the way it's loaded.) Edit: I have confirmed Sublime Text 2 is maintaining the original EOL.

Whilst using Notepad++, I again ran into issues with both the large hostiles but this time it was limited to the last two lines. Always the last array on last listing had lost a number or more. In the image example, 4 individual numbers are missing on the last line which includes the entire last array. This might be Win 8 related. I normally do my Win text work on XP after finding an anomaly with text handling either on Win 7 or 8 a few years ago.

I've released v.4 update.

Again, many thanks for your help.

I've also packed the Hostiles_Light_NJ file separately. Unfortunately I made an error & accidentally zipped the larger version (around 2 MB instead of 103 KB) & someone downloaded it. I apologise to that person. The file has since been replaced, issue remedied.

The idea of the standalone 'Hostiles_Light_NJ' file is anyone can place it manually if you know where it should go for your particular program, be it LimeWire, WireShare, Cabos, Acqulite, GTK or even Phex. Unfortunately (I can't remember since which version) since at least FrostWire 4.20, the hostiles will be deleted when FW starts. Earlier FW versions should be fine.

Sorry to say but your files are corrupted, there are many truncated IPs (not much in the light files but a lot in the full files).
I suggest to start with my fixed files.

Example:
Code:
4/30
85.114.17.96/28
208.0/22
Are you sure there isn't a virus on your PC?

Thanks again for finding the errors. I'm installing NotePad++ on XP this time. I recall Win 7/8 had problems handling the processing of hostiles a few years ago (odd things were happening.)
However since you already fixed the eol's I can continue. Thanks ale5000, many of the errors were fixed.
As for virus on Win 8 ... early in the year or last year I did have one of those web-page hijackers which took a lot of trouble to get rid of. The system had been scanned by a lot of 3rd party utilities of all types to find anything.

Edit: Finished a version 5 of the December update. (Crosses fingers all is ok now!)
I removed a couple of blocked ranges in a particular European country, I needed to back-track to find what I did yesterday. I had also done a few Russian removals, too difficult to determine now since I made no notes of those particular actions.

If someone have a decent server it could help by hosting it and report bugs.

The major problem for a GWC is the number of requests.
A single request use low bandwidth but the number of request is considerable (and about 30% of the requests are from fake clients).
I'm not sure about the exact number but it may be like 1000 requests per hour (to serve both gnutella and gnutella2).

For the ones that want to try it I suggest to put it in a sub-domain (not the main domain) and if you want to disable it then change the sub-domain to point to 127.0.0.1

For the ones interested I have released a new beta version with the code to distribute blocklists (I have released as beta because I have done many potentially breaking changes but if I don't discover any new bug it can be considered stable).
You need Skulls 0.3.4 Beta (or later) and Skulls Add-on 0.2 (or later) if you want to test it.
