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.

Question IS everyone excited about the rush of morpheus users to gnutella?

I think the network is going to grow at a very high rate with the collapse of fasttrack. I wonder how this will affect the ultrapeer architecture.

Thumbs up I'm excited ....

The network is at 350, 000 nodes right now and holding out better than ever. Finally I can get the great selection that till now was only available on the Fast Track network.

The ultra peers must be working good, because I've had all 15 upload slots filled for a day or so with very few incomplete uploads.

However, I noticed that the new Morpheus Preview uses for connecting to the network (probably simply because this is what Gnucleus was using), I wonder how the Limewire guys like 300,000 people using them as a portal without retribution ... bandwidth isn't free.

I use to be a morpheus user... that is untill they put out their new version. All I have to say is that is the worst product i've ever used. It was easy enough to connect and search, but try and get a download.. good luck. I had my entire bandwidth being used to the point I could not surf while attempting to download. Because of the problems Morpheus had they had to push out thier new version asap. (I'm sure all it is, is Gnotella with different icons)

Anyways I have since read up on the whole P2P system and have elected to go with clean limewire and am once again happily sharing and downloading the file I like. It has the best interface for your average user and is easy to configure.

My thoughs, not yours.

We're definitely excited about it as well. We have some really nice features coming along (at least we think so), so look out for them in the next couple of weeks.

Actually all it is a slightly crippled version of Gnucleus with new icons.

Question Morpheus

Does the fight between Kazaa and Morpheus which keeps knocking out the file********* networks disturb anyone?? Are you worried that they're going to eventually screw up both networks here, or is this good for both sides to try to figure things out??

I like new features as much as the next person, but wouldn't it be a good idea to get the current feature set working correctly before moving on to new things? I hate to whine over $8.50, but I feel like I just paid money to become a beta tester. So far I've been able to keep LimeWire running all of about 20 minutes before it grows to about 90MB of RAM and starts using all available CPU time. Calling the released version "stable" is a serious misuse of language. So far, I can't help but feel I just got ripped off for $8.50.

if its music files you want, look no further than audiogalaxy. it is by far THE best i have tried. i have been using LW for months but was never able to find what i was looking for so a friend turned me on to audiogalaxy and i have it all now! i ran adaware to remove any spy components and it still works great! i even spent $22 on a gold membership because it is sooooooooo great!!!! so many features, so many files, so little time! i only use LW for video files now.
