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.

Very helpfull thread folks, thanks to all the contributors.

One question. If I was to do a search for say just the year and get some results and then begin down loading one, will it find less hosts/DL slower, than if I did a direct search. Just wondering because someone told me this was so.

One more question. What is T1 and T3, and what happened to T2, was he not invited to play any of these reindeer games?

I use NetZero DSL. I did a broadband speed test on the net and found I get 79 kbps (9.88 KBps) download speed, and 33 kbps (4.13 KBps) upload speed. This from DSL.

I've also got ActiveSpeed to boost my speed (although I cant see the results when i'm downloading) and I see the brick wall over the planet on LimeWire to show a firewall (not sure if it's Window's or Norton Internet Security). I've checked "exception" for the Window's firewall and checked "allow" for the Norton.

The irony is, when I first purchased NetZero DSL my download speed (on LimeWire) got up over 25 KBps but since then it's gone down and I can't figure out why.

Anything in the MB range will take me anywhere from half-a-day to a day-and-a-half to download.

I copied the advise from the initial post on this thread and attempted to apply that advise but my download speed hasn't changed. Others are having success and I'd like to be among them.

Any suggestions?

I would contact your ISP and ask them why you are getting those speeds, check to see what plan you are on and what your monthly allowance is..

I contacted NetZero. They say I should get "up to" 1.5 mbps in download speed - which is quite a difference from 79 kbps. But, they also said I share a line with other subscribers so my download time could be slower - and my speed could be affected by the distance from the main server (which he could not tell me its location).

All of this would be telling if I hadn't, initially, gotten faster LimeWire download time with the same server.

This stuff can get complicated.

I don't think I would except that...Because when you did a linespeed test it's not testing your limewire download speed, it's testing your overall speed and your ISP is responsible for that...
I would ring them back and strongly suggest that they supply the speed you are paying for in your contract or offer you a discount or let you out of your contract so you can go with an ISP that will deliver what you pay for...
Stand up to them...

Yeah, I told them I wanted to cancel the service and the rep gave me a month free. All I'm really after is faster downloads with LimeWire.

Looking into going with another ISP but don't want to fall for some hype promotion and wind up with the same slow downloads.

Good on you at least you got something...
If you do decide to go with another ISP make sure you do some research, there are so many that shape p2p so bad to the point you can't even get a connection...

ISP's known to BLOCK or Filter p2p or specifically Limewire

Default Great information! Can you also help me with an error message that I am recieving?

Limewire is currently connecting to the network. Your search may not return many results until you are fully connected to the network. Nothing ever happens after that. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

i have used limewire for years with really good success... usually i bought the pro package. but it was also about four years ago. im finding now that is so much less availability of anything i look for... my hunch is the torrent is taking over.
actual question: im having no trouble downloading all day... but no uploads at all. i even downloaded to share a lot of popular stuff just so people will upload. is it my settings or the router? thanks for your tkaing te time t read
