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.

If you bought Pro there's no refund. Thats because they give a free version to try as long as you like, so if you decide to buy Pro you know what your getting.
If you didn't get it from the offical site (http://www.limewire.com/english/content/download.shtml)
Then you probably got scammed. Read through the posts above yours and also this link: Membership?. Good luck.

Default Ripped off as well

I also purchased from the same site, its 8 days today,every day last week I tried to contact them but to no avail, their live chat service is never open, Im in Oz and I know our time is different but Ive tried all hours and as for phone help they had posted that they were having tech difficulties and their lines were down. If anyone has a toll free number I could try it would be muchly appreciated, but only if it is toll free because if its not it would cost more in the call than what I would get in a refund LOL

If you used a CC you can contact them and dispute the charges.

wondering why: I think you'll find that your bank/CC company will have a special department that deals with scams. Explain to them it was a scam site & you didn't get what you paid for & you lost your money.

Talking i got my money back!!!!!!!

I too was scammed by freemusic.com or IP-MP3 support.net they charged me 27.76 on my credit card. I called them it was pretty handy that my credit card company had their phone number on the charge. When the girl asked me how she could help me I told her I wanted the 27.76 off my account. I told her that I knew they were a scam and that when I got on the the actual Limewire page it was a free service and that they gave me a corupt system that I couldn't even get off my computer till I talked to you guys thanks again. She started to get a little pissy with me but I told her that I knew it was a scam and she told me that, that was my opinion, I said no that's everyones opinion on this forum and I'm sure that better business bureau or whoever would listen would think so too. Needless to say I will be receiving my money back in 8 to 10 working days. If anyone else needs to get a hold of this company the number is 1-886-488-0790. I sure hope someone gets something out of this because I went thru hell for 2 days just to get the 4.8 version off. Good Luck to all.
