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.

It's already possible to filter out certain words, but not for a specific search -- you set it up in Options to exclude stuff (e.g. if you're looking for porn, you probably want to filter out any results that claim to be "illegal", "preteen", etc. -- yuk) ... also, it's my understanding (and observation) that Gnutella queries do match on shared subdirectory names. If someone's sharing a file named shared/foo/bar.mp3, a search for "foo mp3" will generally turn it up. I think it also matches metadata sometimes -- title info in a file for example. I've had a jpeg with a bogus-looking alphanumeric code turn up as a search hit, which when downloaded proved to be relevant, and had metadata (e.g. camera model, date picture taken, title) containing the search term.

Default better rating system

Maybe its time for a better rating system. Instead of scoring a file just based on speed (three stars, four stars, etc) include with it an ability for users to downgrade the score if they find out its a virus, spyware or just a bad copy. You could allow only one 'vote' per IP as to deter one person skewing the rating too much. This could possibly help people filter out bad files when used in conjunction with the minimum rating feature. You might also do this by host, but that could be more complicated.

Ya, I just discovered you can set up a general filter, but per search would be nice.

The big one is being able to set a max number of words per file, that really cuts out the spam.

The ipod spams have as many words in the file name as you used in your query -- no more, no less.

Default Folder sharing and download like in Direct Connect (DC++)

The very important is be able to share and download folders like in Direct Connect (DC++) because many files belongs together E.G. movie+subtitle, music cd, etc. Is this so big problem or is it due gnutella network disabilty?

Default LIMEWIRE DEFINITELY NEEDS THESE 2 FEATURES

These spammers are really annoying and ruin the network. I don't know how hard it would be to incorporate, but there are two features that woulf fix all this:

1) There should be a "<, <=, >, >= File Size Filter". This way if you are looking for a 1GB file, you don't get 300 search results for a 36.4Kb FREE IPOD file, because you would have the option to search for a file that is >= 800MB. Conversely, you could download that 5MB song and NOT download that 20MB.mp3 of Silence.

2) Secondly, we shouldn't have to block by host IP's. That can block GOOD users who have been victim of bad files. It also doesn't work, because for every one bad IP blocked there's 100 in line to pick up the slack. So the solution is that when search results come back and we KNOW it's a bogus file already (like those lame S_P_A_M files) we should just be able to block results for those exact files altogether. Right click on the result, and say BLOCK THIS FILE FOR THIS SEARCH. Limewire should just ignore any future results and move on to the real file that is out there.

Thank you for your work Limewire. I would purchase PRO if I had money and definitely would sell some blood if it had these features. Without these 2 features, spammers and the RIAA have ruined Limewire.

Here's a strange one.

If a file finishes downloading, recent versions of limewire freeze for a bit; if you cancel a download, likewise. If you clear inactive or cancel a lot of downloads it completely locks up solid.

But if you go to the library tab, incompletes, and resume something (even a file already downloading) from there, this problem goes away for the rest of the session until you restart limewire -- if a file finishes downloading or you cancel a file it doesn't freeze, and if you cancel a bunch or clear inactive, it freezes for a short time instead of locking up.

So here's a feature request -- whatever changes when you resume from incompletes, make it happen automatically at startup. It shouldn't be too difficult -- it can just pretend the user flipped to the library tab, clicked the first item already in the downloads tab, and then hit resume and switched back, without of course actually visibly jumping around in the gui. This should remove those annoying freezes and hangs.

There was an unnecessary amount of locking that was going on. We've greatly improved / eliminated the freeze... you should notice the difference for the next update.

Thanks for the help!!
