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.

Look I tried searching for blank files referring to blank MP3 files but it never turned up any links so a friendly bit of advice would have been nicer than a short sharp hyperlink dont you think .......... was you a school teacher in a former life ?

I can't give any advice if you don't explain yourself.

What do you mean you are searching for blank files? What are blank files? Are you searching on Limewire or on the internet? What player are you using to 'preview' these files? Can you otherwise listen to music on your computer? Did you actually read this guide?

Sorry but I haven't found my way round here yet, m,y apologies if I posted in the wrong place

What I was trying to say was I was searching the forum to find out if people were experiencing files that were allegedly MP3 files but just turned out to be blank with a noisy hiss when previewed

Thanks! That's much more clear. I haven't encountered that myself.

Does it happen a lot? Can you give some examples of what type of file you are downloading (no file names), i.e. how many hosts, what bitrate, connection type of host? Are the files you're attempting to download very new or popular?

Spam is getting more and more common on the network. With your input, we can all be better equipped to avoid it if possible! By the way, you can listen to music on your computer, right? Some songs do play?

Thanks

Dan

my strategy for searching is to type in .avi or .mpg in the video search feild. with the most popular results at the top I then download what looks appealing and browse hosts within the search results...most the time if you have something downloading you'll be getting it from 8 hosts. Then you right click and browse host in the download window to get a different host than the one you browsed in the search results!Once you have multiple hostss up in your search tabs, browse away at other peoples tastes because they often have stuff you wouldn't normally find in the nnormal search window.. This is my first post and i want to find out easier ways to get hard to find stuff..I often find very rare songs and videos that certain hostss have but im unable to download because it says need more sources.Is it worth upgrading to LW pro? It claims to give better search results.

@ Jezzard

It's people working for the recordcompany, that artist of said song/album is signed to, that release and share bogus files on the network, to prevent people from downloading the real one.

I bet it had lots of hosts sharing it as well.

Try really reading through this guide and I'm sure you will find a way past it.
