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.

There is a comment or two about this by the LW devs several years ago. There is a maximum allowable number of uploads to a specific host. Beyond this they receive a temporary ban. I can't remember exactly how it works except I think the ban period is for about an hour or two, if they are banned again it applies for the entire session. This was based on number of requests, I think for number of files. But also intended to prevent downloading of same file over & over by same host.

What I can find after a search: Banned Greedy Freeloader, . . Tired Of One-Way File-Sharing, . . http://www.gnutellaforums.com/limewi...tml#post334712

The following quotes are from 3.9.5 Beta & 4.1.5 Beta discussions:

The ban time isn't a specific length of time, but rather is based on the amount of requests from the host. We allow any request in the first 30 seconds we see that host, and then from then on we allow 1 request per 5 seconds. If they exceed that limit and continue to hammer, the amount of time they have to wait just grows and grows.

(And yes, client side queueing is needed, but will not be in 4.0.)
LW 5 used a variation of this system which in my experience seemed to be highly buggy with hosts being banned for almost no apparent reason. Also, this would remain in RAM memory so if you restarted LW5/LPE, the host could still get banned immediately they attempted to resume their download from you. I've seen a host get banned for trying to download a single file on many occasions. sighs. I suspect this system was based on number of request messages, not number of files. Seemed to be different logic used compared to LW 4 (& LW clones).

I think this auto-banning was also in defense against some of the older clients, which would not respect the usual or later rules of download engagement. And some clients like Morpheus would ignore queueing, somehow bumping hosts out of the queue until they reached no.1. But I'm talking about 9-10 years ago.

A preventative measure to stop this happening to you if downloading is not to queue up too many files to download from each search results. Choose 1, 2 or 3 at a time. In that way, if you are not sure they are all from same host you should not suffer the auto-ban issue. From SBerlin's description, sounds like you should wait a period of time before selecting another file to download from same host.

Someone really should start rewriting any of these clients from scratch. Things like the above defeat the purpose of P2P. where I (of someone) will find this very rare out of print album, and obviously double clicking every song on it, will be banned as a greedy servant.

Is there no way to add folder download? If not then someone should add it. That way a rare album is one request.

If I remember correctly, DC had that ability. But I don't think it exists within the Gnutella protocol.

I don't know if 'client side queuing' was ever incorporated either. Doesn't sound like it, despite devs considering it for several years.

(I'm not sure when LW 4.0 came out but must have been around late 2003 or early 2004. Looks like for 6 years the ability was never added.)

No, not really. I presume you do not have become an ultrapeer disabled in advanced settings. It's not unusual for the incoming searches to not show as a leaf.

I notice your WinMX shows signs of a firewall. You will need to check the reason for that before you will be able to become an ultrapeer again.

I installed the WinMX Music on a different Win XP & it connected immediately (comes with its own connection file) & connected with UPnP fine according to what the signs suggest.
(My other Win XP comes up with error message when I open apps even though they do open but refuse to connect, so I may need to totally wipe that XP & reinstall it.)

General information about LimeWire clone versions-winmxmusic_incomingmessage.png

BTW I noticed this WinMX Music free installer said there was an update which is 5.8. My original WinMX installer didn't work because the site it obtains the data from has vanished. So I used this WMX free installer instead. The installer process went through 5 to 8 different sponsored 3rd party junkware options.
I'm curious to know what so-called improvements they've made to WinMX over the past 3 years. It still doesn't support DHT which LW started to do with LW 4.18.
