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 Getting my music to others thru limewire-How EXACTLY?

I am new to limewire and have been downloading for a few weeks now. I had a very extensive music Library of my own to start with since I've been a Dj for well over 43 years. I want to share my personal collection of 100% Digital source Oldies and Country music libraries with other Limewire users but am not sure how to do it. Could somebody please walk me thru it so I get it right the first time? I have a very fast SAT. connection and wish to help others build their own libraries the way Limewire has helped me fill some of the holes in my libraries.. Thanks, Mike Love
P.S. I am a Power Mac G4 user with OS 10.4. as my OS.

Default What's Your Problem Anyway?

I am in Northern California you moron. I live in the town of Gerber, which is about 10 miles south of Red Bluff. My phone # IS listed in information and you have a really crummy attitude when it comes to new members trying to add their very extensive music libraries to the limewire family. Just who are you anyway. Are you the moderator of this forum or just some jerk who thinks he's really hot stuff. I am not trying to pull the wool over anybodies eyes. I was actually trying to help by adding my library to the mix. If you are any indication of the type of people I'll run into when I try to ask for help, then screw it. I'll keep my G.D. music to myself. Mike J. Love

To share, first be sure LW is not firewalled. Satellite connections are generally reknown as not highly reliable for uploading through.

To share, How to Share Folders (click on link)
Alternative location for OSX of course is LW prefs -> Sharing tab.
Keyboard shortcut for LW prefs is Command (apple) key and comma ,



BTW yes Peerless is a super moderator on these forums and WAS known as THE axeman. Best not to upset the mods. Just let be.

I have just started using limewire and I don't know much about p2p at this point. I was only trying to offer my very extensive library to others as they have done for me. I was only asking for help on exactly how to set up my system so others could access my music and do not appreciate Peerless calling me an Attention Seeker and a Troll when he knows nothing about me at all. I was asking for help and, if I did screw up, he could have been a bit more understanding. The info in my replies to him were honest and I really don't know why he has it in for me. I made a mistake. Fine. I accept that but to call me names when he doesn't know anything about who I am or what my motives are is just plain rude and totally uncalled for. The info in my first post was all true but he didn't even bother to try to check it out. He just assumed that I was a phony and went after me. I'm not and am still willing to put my music on line but I honestly do need somebody to walk me thru it so I get it right the first time. Mike

area code 503 (as your originally posted) is listed as being is Oregon...your IP did not trace to California on both the traces I did...

I've driven through Red Bluff many times on my way to Fall River, so I know its not in Oregon...the warning I gave you was based upon 2 facts:1: you posted a phone number in clear violation of the rules, 2: you brag (attention seeker) about your extensive collection

AFAIC you are fake and most likely trolling for peoples identities so that you may sue them, and too boot are getting paid for it...

advertising your files as you do is in clear violation of the law and promotes piracy...this forum does not operate in that fashion...

if you can't figure out how to put files in your shared folder with all of the simple directions floating around...well, that says something...I for one don't think you are that retarded, hence my conclusion as listed above...while you may think you are a ''valuable asset'' to the network, I consider you to be nothing special as I consider somebody who takes the risk of hosting as of yet unreleased audio files to be of far greater ''importance''
