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.

hey I missed what was going on here. Who can tell me how many nibbles = one mega byte? Who has the biggest mouth, lol. That's something I learnt back in my electronic days; just after they invented the wheel. (Reminds me of Monty Python & the square wheel.) As far as metric & Imperial, I went thru the changeover whilst I was at primary school so I don't have any probs with either. I still often convert back to imperial if I'm not sure depending on what it is. Some habits die hard.
Actually I haven't as yet got onto broadband (it's been ordered.) Should be within 2-3 weeks.

For dial-up b/c the upld & dwnld bandwidth is the same thing, you need to balance it so there's enough for both. Remember that using LW there's not going to be much more than about 6-7 KB/s available for both. One or 2 people uplding (I have it set to one so they're assured of a constant data flow. Though I generally have several people queuing up. I balance that out by only allowing 1 upld/person. Not sure if it applies here but anyway.) Upld bandwdth I'd suggest set to b/w 1.75 to just over 2. For dwnlding I have it set to 4 max dwnlds, however I wouldn't recommend that for everybody. I'd suggest starting with one/2 to see how that goes. I'd suggest use very high to max dwnld speed. You can make small variations of these settings for yourself to find what suits your setup the best. Disable UP capabilities. I once in a while increase my upld bandwidth to max to help someone out, but that's only after I've finished dwnlding something. Sharing 'really does' help with your your connection, etc.

What's important on dialup is to make greatest use of your resources. I share plenty of files (some people filter out those who don't share more than a certain no. - so with people uplding from me I can connect to more peers for better results & generally no probs connecting - unless they filter out dialup users.) Effective search & dwnld techniques are important (remember you don't have too much bandwidth to play around with) see this link for some hints. Try not to force resume files unless you really need to. If your LW backup prefs still recognise them, then their dwnld % will remain intact. Instead search Gnutella for resources & reselect the file to dwnld. Force resume will cause the file to continually search out for resources & if you have many of them, it will probably play havoc with your connection quality. I forgot to mention, if you attempt to dwnld too many files at once, of course they'll be queud. If you have your no. of dwnlds set too high, then you're going to get very low dwnld speeds. Steady as it goes with just a couple or so at once.
I hope these suggestions are helpful & points to keep in mind for contented LW use. We are very patient people. lol

bizzybone you'll find it under Tools-Options-Uploads & click the arrow & select Basic. For mac that's LW's Prefs-Uploads ...

Actually there's a difference b/w mac & windows here, mac refers to actual KB/s whereas win version LW refers to %.

For dial-up probably a setting b/w 10-30%

I don't think so. If I remember correctly, sliding the cursor will indicate the actual KB/s where it says Unlimited when the cursor is at 100%

murasame upon closer inspection, you're absolutely correct. I haven't' actually connected my win verison LW & hadn't adjusted the slider. But when I did slide it down it showed the actual upld bandwidth & the % didn't change at all so ignore that last post of mine!

Having more than 2 upld slots in a little bit crazy for dial-up. I used to have 2 or 3 but became tired of seeing them continually competing with each other & dropping off.

In general I only dwnld 2 files at a time, however having it set for more allows the chance that I might connect to that less common & 'more difficult to connect to' file I might have had sitting on my dwnld list for some time. But simultaneously dwnlding from more than 2 is putting them all at risk of losing connection whilst using dial-up. This is the chance & risk I play. It's safer to just have it set to one/2.

you can also use the arrow keys for finer control of the slider, but even then not all numbers will show. Just find the setting close to your preferred speed.

Well, I'm glad to see it has helped someone, because some of the info might (or might not) be more or less false, as I am in no way a computer whizz.

Default upload speed

Hi, read all the thread and made the changes recommended. At least now I see upload activity. I have 256 upstream on dsl/cable, so made the change to 27, 3 per person and slots set at 8. As well my downloads I have set at 5. I can download just fine but I noticed that others are only able to upload at very slow speeds...anywhere from 0 to 3k/ps. A lot of the time they are at 0 or transfer interupted. Is there anything else I can do to help this?

Thanks for any advice so that my files are not quite so frustrating? As mentioned, they are able to upload but must be the most patient people in the world.....

Jacqui

Well, they don't necessarily have to wait: if another source has the files you serve and they are able to connect to it, then it's ok.
It goes without saying though, that the more sources, the better.
When I check my uploads, if there's only one user uploading, they'll usually get around 11KBps. More than one upload means less upload bandwidth for every user: how many users are you uploading to (on average)?
