If your problem is not resolved by a search of the forums, please take the next step and post in the appropriate forum. There are many members who will be glad to help.
If you are new to the world of file sharing please do not be shy! Everyone was ‘new’ when they first started.

When posting, please include details for:
Your Operating System ....... Your version of your Gnutella Client (* this is important for helping solve problems) ....... Your Internet connection (56K, Cable, DSL) ....... The exact error message, if one pops up
Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you.

Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

I want a firewall indicator light in the LW gui: green you are unfirewalled on the port and yellow you are firewalled (like bearshare). Once you click on the yellow light it bring you to a page explaining how to configure firewalls and routers for gnutella. Also, this light would be hideable in the display menu - show /hide-. The idea is to lower the number of firewalled nodes which will benefits to all users.

stief has a spectacular aura about
Default

--repeat search added to the context menu of the downloads pane

-*****ulative search results for repeat search (differentiate old sources by grey colour?).

--truncated filenames in downloads pane visible by tooltip (as with search items).

--clicking on a download enters the filename in the keyword search box (automatically or by contextual menu). [redundant if the edit menu happens].

--a Gnutella CONNECTION TESTER (stand-alone or integrated), that will diagnose and rate the health of the connection relative to what the user can expect with a browser, identify upstream blocks and filters, and link to suggestions for improvement as et voilà rightly suggests. [useful even if the firewall->firewall transfers become widespread] Old request here

--moving all the advanced stats (and maybe similar GUI options like IP, Location, and Vendor) to a standalone app or plugin (Pro goody?)

--first time splash screen that also warns about slow start-up because of hashing. Better yet, the hashing of 50 files before connections are attempted the first time. Hashing of further files and folders made relative to CPU usage.

--Add File menu item added to the Library->File Menu [already covered under Drag and Drop addition?]

--support for bit-torrents/bitprints/multiple networks or whatever the current filesharing fashion happens to be . Do unto other networks better than they have done unto gnutella [discussion over here]

- For OSX: "Show file" (as opposed to opening it). With that we can simply find the file in the filemanager.

- For OSX: Add downloaded mp3 to Party-Jukebox-Playlist (remember, that te playlist is called differently in differently localized iTunes).

- When finding a file which I already have locally, LimeWire should automatically try it as alt-loc for my local files and, when successful, add it as alt-loc for that file.

Isn't it the same as the existing "Explore" button? I don't know if this button found on Windows (that opens an Explorer Window showing the directory where a selected file is stored) has an equivalent on OSX's Finder. May be this button should be named "Find" (rather than "Explore" on Windows)?

In the OSX-GUI we only have a "start"-button, which plays the file, but no "show"-button (which is how it should be named in OSX)

The "Explore" button is in the Library.

Feature request: less Buttons, more Shortcuts as replacement (backspace could be used to kill/clear marked downloads etc etc).
