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.

Hey Sleepless, what do you think is the best number of simultaneous downloads that you can set in the Download section? Also, what port setting works best for you? I currently have mine set at 30000, but I have set the range from 30000-65000.



Thank you,
Andrew Perkins

Portnumbers in the range 49152 through 65535 http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

As for simultanious downloads, it all depends on your downspeed and system. I don't use Limewire anymore, so nothing works best for me.

Uploads should be throttled at at least 5KB/s under maximum and if acting as an UltraPeer probably closer to 15KB/s under maximum.

I may be a bit dense, but how exactly do you use the bittorrent option? I type in the URL: Google and then it says it can't find or download anything from the site. Also, here's a little tip, if you can't browse a host remove it from the list and let LW search for some more. I'd block some hosts if I only knew which ones should be blocked; a little help in that department please?


Thank you,
Andrew Perkins

First: Limewire sucks for torrents. Use either µTorrent - The Light****** and Efficient BitTorrent Client or Azureus : Java BitTorrent Client (You will find links on how to setup the clients on the respective websites)

If you choose Azureus this might come in handy as well Main Page - AzureusWiki

Also: Bittorrent - Bit Torrent terms and definitions

You download and open the torrent file with the programs.

BTW Google is a great way to find torrents as well. Type "what you are searching for"+torrent in the search bar and press enter, then read the comments if available before downloading. There are many fake torrent files on public torrent indexing sites as well.

Sleepless, Azureus didn't find what I was searching for, so I'm sticking with utorrent for now. Haven't found anything with utorrent either, but maybe adding some more search engines to the list in the Advanced section might yield a better chance for the albums and songs I'm looking for. Could you please suggest more addresses to add to the list? As far as port settings go I've set LW and Utorrent at 50000 so maybe I should tweak that setting. Any help is greatly appreciated; btw do you have to pay for Bittorent or is it a free program?




Thank you,
Andrew Perkins

lol.. You use your internet browser not Azureus or uTorrent to find stuff. You just open the .torrent in Azureus or uTorrent. Use Google to search.

I did not include more sites because public sites are hit or miss. Anti filesharing companies put out fake files etc.

BitTorrent programs are always free to the best of my knowledge and BitTorrent is in most cases free, but it depends what you do with it.

If it's private sites you want then:

The Official "Open Signup Thread" - Page 176 - Zeropaid Forums

Post sites open for Signup in THIS Thread - Page 1319 - FileSharing Talk

(I posted links to last page at time of posting, because open signup does noy mean open forever. So it's last page and work your way backward)

Well, I couldn't find torrents for **** LW finds an album or two but there's usually only one result which I've already downloaded. Guess I'll have to keep on looking, any help is greatly appreciated. Any tips, no matter how small might help me find these albums in their entirety.



Thank you,
Andrew Perkins

There's a torrent search engine that enables you to search for a torrent from all the major torrent sites. There may be others but I have not found them yet. The site is TorrentPond.com - Search ALL Torrent Engines Here. Give it a visit, it's worth it. Oh, Sleepless, I've been searching for *** videos; haven't been able to find the ***; please let me know if you run across these.



Thank you,
Andrew Perkins
