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 Date and Time problems running BearShare. Please help!

Hi,

I hope this is in the right place. I was informed by a very nice person the other day that I had the WRONG Bearshare software, and that I needed to get the Gnutella version. I did, and now every time I open the program, it adjusts the time and date to my computer to sometime on 1/7/2005. When that happens, none of my pages will open in any of my browsers. Then to get it working again, I have to reboot the entire computer and then the time will allow me to readjust it back to the present. Can someone please help me get past this annoying glitch?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. BTW, I downloaded the Bear Share 5 - Share Ware version he sent me to at this URL: BearShare has been sabotaged.

So that is not the problem.

The time change should only apply for a second or two, then revert back. This happens with all installers of the BearShare 5.1 beta version because it was originally programmed to stop functioning by a certain date in 2005, but the one created by File_Girl generally causes the system less issues.

Was the archive called BSTESTINSTALLER 5.1.0.25c.rar or BSTESTINSTALLER 5.1.0b25? If not, you can get it here. Do a clean install.

If you are using Windows 7, you should right-click the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Perhaps if you do this, it will solve your problem.

Hi,

What exactly do you mean by "clean install"?

Thanks

I re-installed it, and it is still adjusting my date and time. Any other suggestions?

Thank you

Adjusting the time and date is what it does whilst it starts up, but it should only last for a few seconds then return to normal time. You mean your time is not changing back even after some minutes?

Which Windows operating system version do you use?

If you are using Windows 7, try changing BearShare to Run in XP mode and run as administrator.

A clean install is where you uninstall the previous installation and remove all folders belonging to the program including the preferences folder.

I haven't run the BS Beta for ages.

But I just installed File_Girl's version & after a while (maybe 5 mins or so during which BS was adding files to my shared Library) found that I had an error from iTunes saying that time & date weren't set correctly.
That's never happened before when running the BS Beta. Never had a problem with time & date.

When I checked in Windows CP (XP) after maybe 10 minutes, the date was still set to 2005.

I've just used RevoUninstaller to remove BS & rebooted, so far all is back to normal.

I PM'd File_Girl72 earlier, hopefully she will have an idea what the problem is.

On XP mine took a little longer to turn back than usual (over a minute), but the clock did turn back to today's date. Likewise on Windows 7. But Windows on this machine runs quite slow since it's a mac. Windows 2000 was much faster.

Hey Lord,

Yeah, I clean installed, and it never changed back. Date won't let you change if it stays that way for a while. If you change it while you go, it is okay, but it needs constant monitoring. If you wait, you have to reboot, then you can go in and change your time back to the correct time. Definitely needs a little work over.

I do have Windows 7. I will try and run it as XP and see how it goes.

EDIT: It is already running in XP SP 3. Should I change it to run in XP SP 2?

BS was running fine on my last install of XP SP3 fully updated...that was about a month ago...before I fried 4 HDDs and lost all that data...I would assume it will work again once I get around to installing it on this machine running the same setup...

every blue moon the date has gotten stuck on me, but that has been very rare...

Hmm seems you might have the XP version of the BearShare Beta, File_Girl71 will re-host the Windows 7 version over next days. Maybe this is related to the problem.

But yes, do both, run BearShare in Administrative mode. You could also try the Windows XP mode. I know XP mode fixed the problem for one Windows 7 user over a year ago.
