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.

No, No, No! Didn't you mean this one! (click on link). The instructions are much more accurate & specific to the instructions!

I installed the BS25 and tried to run it using the BearStart program, but it keeps saying "this version has expired." I thought BearStart was supposed to prevent that...? Any advice?

Re-read the instructions. You initially need to turn the clock back. After that it should be fine.

Quote: "Instead of starting BearShare the usual way, double click on the BearStart program and it should start the currently installed version of BearShare for you after setting the system date back to July 1st, 2005 for a few seconds while BearShare is starting up. The system date is put back to todays date automatically after a few seconds and the program ends while BearShare thinks it is July 1st while checking the expiry date and proceeds to run normally. It recognises the correct date after a few seconds and proceeds to work as normal."

I get from that that the program should change the clock back. Here's what pops up when I click on BearStart:

"This little utility will set the date to July 1st, 2005 start the installed version of BearShare, pause 10 seconds, and then put the date back to today."

When I press OK to continue, it still says "Key Expired: this copy of BearShare has expired." I am working on a laptop, and I can't change the date on my system manually because I apparently "do not have the authority."

You probably have BearShare starting up with Windows when it boots up.
Naturally, since BearStart didn't get the chance to clear the way for you,
BearShare expires.

Since you are obviously not running with Admin privileges the first thing you
should do is log in as an admin and open the User Accounts control panel
applet to change your account type to Computer Administrator.

Now log in to your usual account and change your date back to July 1 2005 manually,

start BearShare manually,

go to the Setup/Options tab and remove the checkmark from
"Launch BearShare on System Startup".

Change your date back to normal.

Open the properties page for the shortcut you use to launch BearShare with
and edit the Target line from bearshare.exe to bearstart.exe.

You can now change your account type back to "Limited User" again if you wish.

That should clear up the expiry problem permanently.

Thank you for your help! I did try to make myself an admin, but I found out that I already am. Since I still could not change the date/time, I made a new admin account to see if that one would work. That account didn't work either, so I'm just assuming that it's a flaw in my computer. I also tried using the "ghost" admin account, since I have Windows XP, but I couldn't change it on that one either. I don't know what else to do, so I'm just going to give up for now, I suppose. Oh well, thank you anyways!

There's another way to fix the startup issue, if that's what it is.
Open Regedit and drill down to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

If you see BearShare in there, delete it.

Once that's out of the way hit control-alt-delete, go to the Processes tab,
right-click BearShare and select "End Process". BearStart should be able to
start it now, unless someone has set a policy blocking you from the date and
time entirely.

To remove that policy it's a lot easier if you are using XP Pro.
You didn't mention which version of XP you have there.

I highly recommend a freeware program called TweakAll. Among other handy features, it allows the user to view and modify (change/remove/add) the startup files. This is much easier than manually editing the registry.
