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.

You should not remove incoming connections. They are ultrapeers your LW is connected to or attempting to connect to. Only reasons I would suggest removing any connection would be (a) above point about getting into UP mode which might be a little hazardous, or (b) if you suspect you are connected directly to a spam ultrapeer, in which case, remove the longest connecting one. Wait a few minutes for LW to find a replacement & wait until your connection has stabilized. Then see if search has improved. Then repeat process only if necessary, (remembering spam is a fact of life nowadays). Same principle applying to (a).

But for getting into Ultrapeer mode, if forcing is not working, then perhaps your LW is simply not behaving well enough to become one, else there are more than sufficient ultrapeers in your region already & more are not needed. You should definitely need to have sufficient free up & down bandwidth available. Firewall & connection problems will prevent UP mode.

lol why hazardous? If your Limewire has no trouble connecting, new connections are there 1-3 seconds after you delete them.

@ cgm707

If you have trouble connecting, then why on Earth try this? A UP has to have great connection, or it hurts the networks by dropping packages.

BTW I tried this on 4.18.8 and it worked no problem for me.

If you are using Pro .. you have 5 ultrapeers. If you have Basic you have 3 you are connected to. Take one away & your LW 'will' most likely lose connection momentarily. How long that takes to find another U.P. LW can 'actually connect to' varies from person to person & from case to case scenario. I've had the odd person complain it took 'more than' several minutes to find another U.P. ie: what works for you with immediate results does not necessarily work that well for others. When it comes to connections, so many factors are behind it for each person's case such as isp, traffic on their isp, their set up, how many 'genuine' U.P's are available with free connection slots within fast access & other issues. Remembering there are all different types of U.P's out there including fake ones & spammer ones .. and poor behaving ones that should not really be UP's. That's one reason LW made it more difficult to become a UP using the T3 setting. UP's are needed for people to connect to the gnutella network. It's been known for several years there are 'fake' / non-responsive ultrapeers out there. It means some people will need to be patient (& careful) when applying these techniques to force themselves into ultrapeer mode.

Oh well I thought that was a given, that someone who's already having trouble just getting connected to a few (3-5) UP's should definitely not be attempting to connect to even more Peers.

I'll add a bit about stable connections.

Jillxz's advanced options showing Ultrapeer capability is not disabled. She initially posted she could not find the option, but then edited her post just before I answered. LW 5's location for Ultrapeer setting is in a different location to LW 4. It's found at LW's menu bar, Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Super Really Advanced -> Performance. The options for disabling Ultrapeer, DHT, TLS & OOB are found there. But all these settings are enabled by default.

Need to be connected to network for 40+ mins for best chance for ultrapeer mode.

I changed some setting on my computer and put my firewall back on wile I was an Ultrapeer, I became a leaf but still had 32 people connected to me...

My connection is extremely consistent but on running Limewire Basic My connection will become turbo charged nothing has changed, then a day or two later I'll be fully connected again and just re- start my computer and limewire goes back into turbo charged. At first I assumed this was simply if I was running as a Leaf or an Ultrapeer but it seems to be totally irrelevant do you have any ideas whats going on...

Honestly I did not think you could even get a turbo charge connection with basic but I lost my code for my Pro its set to auto renew so I'm hoping when it does I'll get a new code to my email.

I think I managed a download from 12 hosts once, but that was an exception.
