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 Old paid version

I subscribed to Limewire about a year ago for around $50. This was supposed to be a one time fee for a lifetime membership. Now I see the service is free. What exactly did my subscription fee go for? I was under the impression that it was to pay the copyright holders of the songs I downloaded a small royalty. Or was it just to buy into the system? I wish I could get upgraded to Pro now for my subscription. Anyone have the answer to this?

O.k, this is what i did after paying about £20 to some affiliate of limewire about 2 years or so ago.


Simply click this link ******
Once ya done, you should have a choice of 3 things, your original email address from when you first ever registered, or recently you can now give your username and password which would of been sent upon your registration.If you struggle to do this, feel free to gimmie a nudge on msn/email whichever . i will be on as domgoran, @hotmail.com , and i will give ya a name and password to borrow for upgrading, but shhhh, dont tell everyone.

Once your done with the loggin in bit btw, you will have a choice of loads of Gnutella programs, but importantly the latest version of the p2p program. If you were to however, get the Limewire for free, say from download.com, sure ot costs ya nothing, but you get a cruddy version, thats quite slow and not as effective in my opinion, but again, lemmie know and i can give ya same version as mine for free, and i currently use limewire 4.9.23 pro. I hope all this info helps, but like i said, [email]*** or domgoran for addy on msn and i will be pleased to help.

Well I feel sorry for you people. Only get your gnutella programs from the official sites. Do some investigation 1st before you pay money over the internet. There is no such thing as Lifetime membership. That's what scam sites offer. They make you pay for the FREE versions of programs. You pay, then they give you a link to the free version downld site. You think you have pro but instead you have the basic free version. Either that or they give you an adultered version which may include spyware, adware, viruses or other home made variations of the real thing such as 360 share or eTomi or BearShare2005, etc. See the following links: 1. Membership? - **WARNING ** BEWARE** - Download p2p Clients ONLY Thru Official Sites

2. Known Scam Sites which applies to more than one type of gnutella program.

3. get your $$$ BACK!!! (music members)

Are you sure about that? Go to LW's menu bar, Help > About Limewire
Does it say LW Pro? Doubtful! Only get LW from the official site: http://www.limewire.com/english/content/download.shtml

Yes m8, i am quite sure which version i use, and just FYI, i didnt pay for it neither. As for paying for the original, let me ask you, when you first ever started to use the internet, did you now pay for anything which you can now get for free?

No didnt think so, so before you start on peeps making mistakes, concentrate on your own mistakes m8.

first, limewire doesnt have any affilates. that site you pointed to is SCAM site. limewire has only one official place which is www.LimeWire.com. you dont need to be pointing anyone in the wrong direction. so i suggest LOTR or another mod to edit that link and/or the post.

you can get LimeWire for free at www.LimeWire.com and if you want, you can get the PRO version for $18.88 with 6 months free updates and email based tech support.

tip: you dont need to be in such a defense state since he was simply pointing you into the right direction.

Yes I did & do pay for software. In my field of work, my program id signature needs to accompany my work. And we do not promote the illegal obtaining of software on this forum. And the site you quoted are receiving money for something they don't own, design & give a damn about their customers. All they are interested in is a quick buck. You sound like a miserly sod & I wouldn't be surprised if you work for the scam site you were promoting. Ask the official Limewire programmers what their opinion of the site in question you listed.
