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.

Cool

Ok, I am new to Limwire and I'm not the most computer literate person in the world. My download speed is: 1485 kbps and my upload speed is: 357 kbps...What exactly does that translate to? I have roadrunner...Thanks a lot for any help!

Those are you download and upload bandwidths (respectively). Dividing both by 8 (to have them in Bytes because that's how LW shows them) you get around 185 KB (not Kb; watch out. Kb is for bits, KB is for Bytes) of dld bandwidth and roughly around 45 KB upload bandwidth.
What this means is that, theoretically, you can download from the net (including P2P, but not exclusively) with a 185KB per second and upload to it with a 45KB per second speed (considering an average quality .mp3 song is around 3.5 MB, then you should (again, theoretically) be able to get one in seconds (more like a minute or two).
Since that is all theoretical, in the real world (well, at least the real cyber-world) all kinds of things enter in the equation to mess it up. For example, look at your upload bandwidth: it is nowhere near your dld bandwidth. When dlding from P2P (such as LW) this matter a great deal because one dlds from anoter peer. If you only dld from one peer, and supposing that they aren't uploading to anyone else (meaning that they can give their entire upload bandwidth to you), you will get only speeds around 45KB (if we suppose that thyey have the exact same connection as you), no matter how big your dld bandwidth is.
And that is only one factor. You can add to that the fact that Cable/DSL connections are affected by the distance from the server, or that you won't be able to see absolute "Top Speed" because there are also messages (FTP, HTTP, blah, blah...)being sent to and from the network that eat up a little of your bandwidths, and a whole other mess of crap that affect internet connections (not just P2P).

Angry Would like to see what users see

'kay....I've tried all the above, and I still have questions.

Can the "describe..." menu item in the library tab really help users find my files? There's virtually no documentation on this menu item anywhere.

Also, I've got Windows Server 2003 on my machine...I'd like to know what account Limewire uses so that I can tweak that account's permissions better...

Thanx in advance for anyone who replies,

deck

Default I'm trying to figure out what the original poster said

I am on Uploads basic, and do not see what he is talking about. This pc stuff can be very hard and challenges every brain cell I have. Im not an avg joe eithier. Just if someone could put this into laymens terms and state it in 30 seconds. Not a 5 paragraph expository essay. I get easy stuff if communicated well and in few words. God I want to make my LW work well, but I cant follow all that he wrote. Can anyone help?

deckerd26354, your questions have nothing to do with what I posted about Optimising LW. Please post them in a different thread (or just follow the thread you already started about wanting to see what others see)

MusicGuy2005, I understand that it is a long post, but if you are too lazy to read it then it's not my fault. I think this is one of the simplest ways one could have described how to optimize LW's performance: the steps are rather clear (if you ask me).

I found the explanation most helpful, and am grateful that someone took the time and effort to spell it out in great detail... but I'm just one person.

'kay....Which forum would you recommend that I start a thread in, that's appropriate for my previous questions, and any other admin, tech-savvy-type questions I may have? By the way, I have purchased LimeWire Pro...

Thanx,

Deck

Open discussion or Windows Support (the first choice is probably more appropriate).

Remember that a KB is 1024 Bytes not 1000.

A computer is using binaries, not the decimal system.

To calculate bits to bytes (or the other way around...)http://www.beesky.com/newsite/bit_by...00&kilobytes=1
1 byte is still 8 bits. It gets a little weirder when you start mutliplying the bits (or bytes) by 10^x.
