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.

Default Can't get LimeWire to Work with OS X 10.3.9

Ok - I downloaded LimeWire (4.14.?) It told me that this version of LimeWire only works on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later. I have Mac OS X 10.3.9 and when I tried to open up LimeWire it says the latest version of LimeWire won't work, but version 4.12.6 will -- would you like to download it? I say yes I want to download it -- the link takes me back to limewire.com and straight back to the version 4.14.? that I cannot use on my OS X 10.3.9. I have Googled LimeWire 4.12.6 -- lots of results, but all the download links take me back to the new 4.14.? version. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

The link to the older versions is on the side of the page, and posted right above your post in the stickies.

Here's the shortcut to LimeWire 4.12.15 for Mac OS X (10.2 - 10.3) Lime Wire » Download Out-Of-Date Installers

Dallas--one suggestion: Run Apple Menu -> Software Update until all updates are installed,

Out of date software might be the reason.

If still doesn't work, then check the Java version that's running. If using OSX 10.5, then make sure Java is 'at least' Java 1.5. If it's already set to Java 1.5, then try Java 1.6 as that sorted the issue for at least one user; Setting up Java 1.5. Good idea to log out & back in after changing Java preference settings. * If you are using LimeWire version 5 you will require Java 1.6. How to organise your java preferences as shown below may vary per person's set up. LW 5 users may need to move Java 1.6 up higher than shown here, such as 2nd or 1st on list.

Non intel users, OSX 10.4 & earlier OSX users will not be able to use LW 5. Users whose computers are not 64-bit capable intel machines, are limited to LW 4. Such OSX 10.4 & 10.5 users will be limited to LW 4.18 using Java 5 (1.5). Make sure your Java 1.5 is high up on the Java preferences list.

(Oh & the beta fixed it for someone too, however, beta versions may have bugs of their own.)

* Edit: Java preferences for Leopard OSX 10.5



Below are settings I am using for LW 5 beta for Leopard OSX 10.5. Those users who do not see Java 6 (1.6) listed in their Java preferences for Leopard are not running a 64-bit capable intel computer, & thus will not be able to use LW 5. You would be limited to LW 4 _ (click link to see how to downgrade).



OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard preferences sample image below:

Last edited by Lord of the Rings; February 16th, 2010 at 10:30 PM. Reason: Edited to make it clear Java 6 is required for LW 5, & link to downgrading to LW 4

Red face LimeWire 4.12 not working with OS X 10.3.9

I have OS X 10.3.9 and Limewire 4.12, which should work according to
the threads I've read here. Limewire opens, but when I submet a search
for a song title or author -- nothing will come up.

I have noticed in the lower left hand corner of the page a symbol with a world and a brick wall -- which when my mouse is placed over -- a pop up says "firewall detected". I tried dble clicking to see if that will take me to where I can release the firewall, but it did not do anything. I looked thru Preferences in both LimeWire and in FireFox and did not see where to release the firewall.
This seems to be the problem.
I am connected via Time Warner cable.
Can anyone help?

SueBQ (catchy nic!)--the firewall icon is bricked by default, whether or not you actually have a firewall. Once LW connects, LW checks with the connected hosts whether you actually have a firewall in place. So, if you aren't getting connected, the brickwall will show.

You check for the OS X firewall in the System Preferences, in Sharing. You will probably find that the firewall is already off.

Are you actually connected? Turn on LW's Connections View to see the situation. If nothing shows, or lists of numbers are repeatedly attempting to connect, the problem probably is not related to the Firewall.

Try replacing the gnutella.net file while LW is quit, and see if that helps. Instructions can be found at LimeWire Forums and elsewhere.
