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. 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.

Enable resume/find sources button with "Try Again" caption for files with the status es Complete and File Corrupt. In the latter case you want to reattempt getting it, preferably while the source is still online, and should not need to explicitly search for it. In the former case, the file might prove on examination to have been substituted with an ad or other junk, or otherwise damaged without the damage being detected resulting in File Corrupt status. In that case you want it to delete the file and attempt to get it again, but you might want to block the host that sent the bogus/substitute file so you have greater odds of getting the real McCoy next attempt. (There's some files I've been trying to get for ages that turn up frequently in search results but never seem to download right -- one I've gotten six or seven times and it's never shown a status of File Corrupt, but it's also been broken beyond use in every single instance!)
This brings me to another matter: finer grained detection of corruption. Really, each time a chunk of file arrives and the progress meter notches forward a bit, it should be possible to check that one chunk against some check bits tacked onto the end and rerequest just the one chunk if it's damaged. This will reduce accidental file corruption to nearly nil without having to reget entire files, only pieces. That leaves intentional corruption by hostile nodes that join the mesh for a file and send garbage or advertisements, corrupting and vandalizing the file. This is simple -- all files participating in a mesh need to have the same exact file, with the same SHA1. When downloading from a newly-discovered source begins, Limewire can request a random chunk of the file that it already has and compare it with the version it already has of that chunk. If the new chunk doesn't match and does have proper check bits, it's probably a hostile node trying to pollute the download, and should be dropped rather than downloaded from. Your node also won't refer other nodes to the hostile node. If it matches, it then requests chunks it does not have from that source in order to download part of the file from it. Downside is, if the first source to send any chunk of a file was hostile, it will download from only the bad actors! But at least the mesh for a file with bad nodes in it will get divided into two disjoint chunks, one sharing a bogus file and one the real file, and if you got the right one to begin with you will get the entire correct file and not a partially corrupt file.
This could also use Bitzi-like reputation management features, in which not only whole files but just chunks have reputations. The version of a chunk with majority representation in the mesh might rule; or volunteers can preview chunks (for some formats this should be possible) and vote them up/down.
It would be nice if you could have multiple playlists in the library like in kazaa, so if more than one person uses it, you don't have to sift through a massive list to find your favourite songs.
Sort the "Blocked Hosts" list, or allow copy to clipboard,so that the list may be sorted there. Right now it is not possible to copy to the clipboard, which would be an interim solution to a problem.
User definable connection speed
due to the fact that the given choices do not include anything that resembles my connection.
I am on 3mb Down and 364Kbs up
if I select any of the given choices I either end up seriously restricting my download speed from what it is capable of or choking my connection as to get decent down load the lowest I can possibly put the upload slider is still higher that the max my connection will allow.
yes I know there are unlimited settings but I like to hold back a certain amount of bandwidth so I can still surf and do other things on the net.
And since I share 35Gig+ of files in limewire and always leave it running yes this becomes a problem as there are always people getting stuff from me
Just a little tiny and probably amazingly easy feature request... this would cut down on the number of crap results of a search:
On start up generate a random 32 byte string (like MD5 encode the thread ID and systime or something). Do a search for it in the background. Automatically blacklist the IPs of anything that returns a result to that search. While running, preodically do this search again, and add any results to that blacklist. Optionally, also give the user the ability to add obviously BS results to this blacklist, and possibly even allow this blacklist to be auto-shared, so you can choose another user and import their blacklist if you want.
I'm hoping these features are significantly easier than what I really want, which are features that get you a beer whether there's any left or not, and make the cat not decide to take a really stinky crap every time you have a girl over. B^)
