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.
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.

Filtering file types??? How to get more options for filtering!!!?
In my older version of Limewire (4.8... i think) after I browsed a host I could select a file catagory like video, image, program etc.. and then filter again by specific extension under "type". In the new version that I just downloaded you can still filter the "type" under a general search but when you browse a host the "type" changes to "artist" no matter what file catagory you are looking at ie video, image, program etc.. . Is this a setting that I have wrong or was this a change in limewire itself???
I haven't noticed that at all. It should still work as it did. I frequently use the browse feature & then filter by file type as you do.
I'm not sure I 100% understand your problem actually. When I browse, I think it shows all types. Then I filter to the file type I'm after.
Edit: when you start browsing someone, the audio filter shows 1st by default. But others will show.

Here is what is happening
Started limewire..did a search..on the left side of the screen there three sections. Genre..Artist..and Album, all with selectable catagories under these headings. Now I browse a host... again there are three sections . MEDIA..Artist..and Album but the selectable catagories are gone except for the area under media where listed is audio, programs, images, and video. If you select images, programs, documents, or video the bottom two catagories never change.
With the OLDER version of limewire if you selected "video" the next catagory below would have then broken down as wmv, avi, mov...etc. If you selected "documents" the next section down would have listed doc, pdf, txt, etc.... Then if you selected "doc" for example you would only see the files with that extension listed
In the new version this does not happen. I cant imagine that the upgraded version would have had less functionality so I thought maybe there was a setting that I was missing......Thanks!
Apparently the options are still there. I didn't know about this. Was informed by one of the LW devs.
Right-click (control-click for mac) on the small left corner circle & options will appear for what you'd prefer to show in the filter.
Quote: "you can change what they're filtering on by clicking on the circle on the top-left of each box. You can minimize them by clicking on the arrow on the top-right of the box."

And in the same way you can apply different filters to other types of media. Here's an example of bit rate filtering with audio files.

If you are from the usa then you want ntsc european uses pal. Try opening the file by right clicking it and choosing OPEN WITH - try the different players in your choice. There is also the possibility it wont open because it isnt a media file at all. For example windows media or showtime may not work and open the file protecting your computer from erratic behavior. Unfortunately there are some people who will try and send out a virus or worm. Your antivirus program , windows media player , showtime etc wont just start playing it if it doesnt recognize it as mpg avi mpeg etc. It may ask you first with a warning or the player will just shut down. Try staying away from videos under 40mb.
