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 Is there a worse File Sharing Program?

I haven't tried all the P2P File Sharing Programs but, without a doubt, Limewire is the worst.

LOL Why? If it's properly configured you might find otherwise! You mean you don't like it b/c it's not a leech? Is it you don't like sharing or something? You prefer P2M apps (peers to me only)? lol

Yeah, quite a few p2p`s that are bad news,much worse than this.
Ultimately,the worse p2p`s are always the ones with a low userbase.

Y`know what they say, `so many people cant be wrong`, go where the people are.

Personally I love it so far. I've downloaded a ton of files and had no problems.

I was going to try Kazaa but it said there was something on my computer it didn't like and that I'd have to get rid of first when I was downloading. Whatever, so skip that one.

Tried Morpheus..worked fine for one day...then the search function refused to ever work again. Tried reinstall, system restore, virus/spyware dice.

So next..Lime problems at all, and great success finding and getting what I want. As far as I'm concerned then, the others suck, and Lime Wire is awesome

Default i tell ya every day i hate lime more

You all sit their and say lime wire is so good, not properly configed. or what ever. I am on a cable internet, and can download a 20mb file in no more then 13 min. ONE it takes me almost a week to download a 200mb if i can. One min i am downloading the file the next i am waitting in line, next server is busy. O but yes, the files for you all still keeps working for sum odd reasone. Kazaa has spy ware, well at least with kazaa you could actuly get a file. It never took me this long to get a show on kazaa on a dial up at 24kbs. I have a lot of movies and such that i have downloaded over the years. Guess what I sure wont be shareing them here if this is the way you all are.

stief has a spectacular aura about

m-27 (LW measures transfers in kilobytes, not kilobits.)

Just checked--neighbour installed LW on his XP machine, and with no extra configuration he was really impressed with his download speeds (90 files in about 1 hour). I checked my cable and download speeds look just fine here too:

Of course, all depends on which of the 1,000,000 other users who successfully use LW you connect to.

Sorry to hear that your connection/setup sucks. Hope Kazaa works better for you.

Default yea your right

One sec i get about 45kB, the next sec i get 0kB. The next sec i am waitting in line as always. Left computer on for two days in order to try and download a 220mb file. Two people were able to download 240mb files off me. I on the other hand have maybe 30% downloaded and at this point I am waitting in line again. lol Yea i guess I could go back to kazaa, (pay them and all) but since I paid for lw pro. I figure i will keep trying this thing for a while. Since its not the prog it's the losers on the other end.
