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.

Default Unauthorized downlading

I'm sorry if this seems ever so slightly n00bish, but my limewire appears to be downloading a number (200+) of cracks to my shared folder at regular intervals without asking me wheather I want to, and without me even asking to download them. Just wondering if anyone else its experiencing something like that, and how to stop it. Cheers.

First thing is to have a virus app detect everything you dwnld. You might also want to get a spyware checker.

Depending upon the type of files you dwnld, if you add a few keywds in LW's filters this will help to eradicate much of that type of rubbish from your search results. Go to LW's menu Tools-Options & Filters & choose Keyword & enter .exe This principle is shown in detail in this following thread: Blocking adult content I hope this helps.

Getting a virus from limewire is very rare. Ive only even heard of it once but ive never heard of 200+ unauthorized downloads before.

This is what I would do if I were you:
run Windows update then Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer http://www.microsoft.com/technet/se...s/mbsahome.mspx

Next try using:
-ad-ware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
-Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html
-Spy Sweeper http://www.webroot.com/wb/downloads/index.php

That only covers hacking and spyware problems im guessing you already have an anti-virus?

I have spybot and ad-aware already, and nothing came up. I may reinstall AVG because it seems to be screwing up recently. I download mp3's, but I tried to download ***, which is when the problem started.

As an afternote, know that dlding applications (and .exe files in particular) puts you and your computer in a vulnerable position because this is how one can get a virus. This isn't because of LW. It is (again) because of the users. Although LW will warn you that dld such files is hazardous, it is still up to you. And the danger is not unique to LW. Any P2P app that allows program dlding puts you i the same danger, so either get an antivirus, or (as Peerless will no doubt say if he sees this thread) go and buy the software and get the antivirus anyway because it's damn useful.

Did you try Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer to? Its good to make sure your security is up to date.

Like I said before getting a virus from limewire is rare but if you were to get it from somewhere it would most likly be from a .exe file or mybe a .zip

Did you do any checks for trojens yet?
