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.

Well , I think I have just found an excellent P2P software program. At least so far it has been just excellent. It is Limewire. It gives great download choices and also puts the song in my beloved iTunes. So what can be more perfect than that? Hope I haven't spoken too soon lol.

Not giving me very many results when searched and not downloading the songs. The false one did. had no trouble with it and it downloaded fast. Anyway , I do appreciate your help although by the time you responded , i had already gone through three P2P softwares and had trouble with all of them except for the false Shareaza. No trouble with that one except giving all these ringtones to maybe 4 downloads for songs.


You are probably correct when you say I don't know how to use these very well. Could be true. I just have found none I like better than iTunes.

This will be my last post unless someone can give me a good reliable P2P program with a nice media player . Since as of now I don't have P2P software , so at the moment no problems . I will not post again. thanks for all your help.
Hey...^^ The fake Shareaza (an iMesh clone) is not even real P2P software, but some commercial crap.

As the real one connects very well (on my computers at least). I suppose you've never set up your PC right. Ever tried a connection test? lol, I recon it will show you where your problem is.

Also, the fake one is very limited to what it has got to download, while the real one does not. And why do you compare iTunes to a P2P software? What has iTunes got to do with a P2P software?

Maybe you should read the article on filesharing or P2P on Wikipedia...

As for a decent media player... try VLC, that's one of the best free and open source ones out there.

if not Shareaza, what would you suggest? Your response time is unbelievably fantastic. I was typing out what I understood about the static address info. Take it you don't want it.

There's lot's of gnutella programs to try. Your response surprised me too, I just moved the other posts into its own topic.

If your router utilizes UPnP then there are up to date gnutella programs that can usually communicate with such & open a port when needed for listening & connecting, etc. If your router does not have a reliable or any UPnP support, then not much can be done on that front if you cannot port forward. You must have a static ip address in order to port forward a router. I do understand some ISP's are a bit touchy about users deciding to set a static ip on their own. It's purely a marketing ploy. Even when I set a static ip address, my external ip address kept changing every few days at least. Thus had the effect of a dynamic ip address but the internal address was static (stayed the same.)

This message has 2 parts:

1) I know there are a lot of programs out there. The question was, which would you suggest? In my first lookings around this site, it almost seemed to be a LW forum. Is that what you use? Does it require a static ipaddress, too? I just want a reliable tool that is not subscriptioned based. Good file orgainzation is a plus.

2) I found the default settings pl;us option 1 and option 2 for setting up static address "on devices in your network". That's not going to work, is it? If not, I really want another tool that will work for my situation.

OOps!! Guess I'm in the new thread and just found the suggested AVS link up above. I'll go study it. Thanks.

I went. I studied. I continued thinking thoughts I had already started and I can now -- pardon me Lord -- make LW work as effectively and speedily as the first service I tried. Where should I post my hints?

(1) I've used LW for many years, next longest would be Phex which is also very good & has some advantages over LW. I have tried the other gnutella programs but because I use Mac OSX, the other gnutella programs do not have Mac versions. That limits me to only using the other gnutella programs on a part time basis.

Sounds like you have already decided on LW as an alternative. If that's your decision, I suspect LW 4.16 might suit your file organisation desires better than LW 5 at present. LW 5 is still arguably in beta stage with changes, slowly bringing back tools with each release, & next they will be re-organising the library window. Though there are some things I do like about the separation of file types in LW 5.

(2) Most gnutella programs that have continued development until now have UPnP support, some better support than others. However, all will still require you to give exceptions to them in your Windows firewall.

If you need assistance, feel free to begin a new thread topic in one of the LW sections of the forums.

Here's a starting point to learn about LW: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/gettin...ire-4-5-a.html

For LW 5.1.3, get it here: http://www9.limewire.com/download/LimeWireWin-full.exe or even better would be the LW 5.2.2 beta: LimeWire 5.2.2 (Beta) - Lime Wire

Alternatively for LW 4.16: Downgrading to LimeWire 4 from 5 & resuming incomplete downloads
