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.

Exclamation Filtering by file size (exclude bogus results)

It would not be a bad idea if a user could omit search results by filesize, most bogus (polluting) downloads are differently named files but of the exact same size.

This filter would prevent those who pollute the network with worthless ads/misdirections and instead allow you to focus on REAL files.

I agree. However, I find searching by size isn't useful. I'd rather be able to search a range of sizes, say any file between 300MB to 400MB, or any file less than 100K, for example.

If there's a way to do this, I haven't figured it out. Being able to search a range of sizes would accomplish what you want to do also.

A filter list of known filesizes rather than a range (which could inadvertantly exlude files you'd want) but rather a list of specific filesizes.

Default Filtering by file size

I am constantly receiving results which are like an echo of my search but with a very small file size (e.g. 114.1 Kb or 181.9 Kb). It really would be a great feature if I could filter speciifc sizes out as they are just another form of junk.

Would it not be better to simply ban the wankers that are from Porn companies trying to sell their crap?
I mean they all have the same dodgy file size mostly "1140" etc
If this is not possible then supply me with addresses and you wont have anymore trouble.
Typed in Stargate and the first 20-30 had the same file size and all had bugger all to do with Stargate....at least the versions we see down here anyway?
It seems no matter what you type in, there will be porn under the heading of what your really lookin for. makes me wonder just how safe this site really is????

Agreed with you, anything you search for in any language you will always get small files (less than 200 kbs) exactly with the same name you type before, what a coincidence, that's annoying!!!! they should do something to remove these files.

I want to second the suggestion of riddim_rocker and MarioV. Having the ability to limit search results to more than a specified size would make life a lot easier. Other P to P programs, like Morpheus, have this feature.

Sanguinellc

You may not have noticed but this thread started over 5 years ago, not only that every so often the "search by size" suggestion reappears (approximately every six months) being re-suggested by various forum members (including myself) and still the programmers ignore it.

So it is highly unlikely that they are going to run with this suggestion now (even though the majority of users want it).

We all have to start going to programming school so we can figure it out ourselves, I think that is the point
