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.

Hi guys!
I ran a test on my internet speed and it's 333 kilobits per second. However, at most LimeWire downloads at 30 KB/s. I think I've done everything in this post but nothing seems to have happened. I'm running XP - can anyone help?

heebie,

LimeWire shows speeds in kilobytes, not kilobits. 8 bits = 1 byte, so 333 kilobits(Kbs) = 41.6 kilobytes(KB/s). Some of your speed is used for overhead(sending bits of information needed to recieve the file). So the speed of 30 KB/s is pretty close to what you should be getting.

For more info, just google "bits and bytes".

Edit: A couple thing you can do to help improve your speeds a little. In LW go to Tools>Options>Speed, and disable ultrapeer capabilities, then go to Tools>Options>Uploads>Basic, and tick beside auto clear completed uploads, and run LW minimized in the system tray. These settings may improve your speeds a little. Be sure to click apply after making changes.

Default Hi, please if you could help..

Hi guys, I kinda got to this thread while trying to find an answer to my downloading problems. Apparently, this dude has the same problems as me.

I used to download up to 90kbps, but usually bordered around 30-40kbps with 8 host(my max). For the past month or two, this speed has reduced dramatically, ranging from 0(most of the time), to 3 or 4kbps. As such, a download for a 5mb file which used to take me less than a minute, now takes me almost 40 mins.

There has been no changes to my ISP, nor my subscription plan, and I believe they're advertising surfing speeds of up to 12MBPS(http://www.starhub.com/online/maxonl...riceplan.html). If you do visit their site, i'm on the Premium plan).

"MaxOnline Premium at a monthly fee of $79.80 (w/GST) per month
Offering you download speeds of up to 12Mbps (12,000Kbps) and upload speeds of up to 384Kbps."

I really don't believe it to be a problem with my isp(unless of course they fiddled with the p2p speeds as mentioned earlier in this thread), neither have I made any drastic changes to my desktop setup(i'm on OSX btw).

Please, can someone help me???

Sounds like Starhub are throttling p2p (ISPs don't always tell their customers the truth).

Some stuff they may help about my pc
OS- Windows XP home edition
Firewall/Antivirus - Norton 2006
2gig RAM
136gig Free space
Im using the basic version, im not to great on all the technical aspects so if anyone is able to help but needs more info i will try to get it, all the tests in the thread have been ok like the port not being blocked or the firewall stopping the connection.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Every time I download a song, I get a message "file is corrupted. Do you want to proceed?" How do I avoid this because each song only play the first 8 seconds.

If your using the LW player, try using a different player( VLC media player is a good one). LW's player tends to skip, pop, crack, ect.

Otherwise they're probably spam/fake files. Have a look through this thread for tips on finding music: How to find music
