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 Needlessly complicated

I have been signed up to this forum for years but I cant post because I have never posted? Is that weird or what? This is the only place that will allow me to post,(that I can find) it is needlessly complicated to a 60y/o and I wonder how many people have tried to post and given up? Its as if this site was set up by a hacker for hackers to hack into? I read the sticky on how to post a thread but it didn't make sense because the directions are wrong?

Forums as a whole can be intimidating when it is your first time there. And the larger they are the more complicated it seems.

This forum is broken up into sections. Some of the parent sections are non-postable sections, but simply link to other child forum sections which can be posted into. (If there were no multiple sections of the forum, then it would be one single mess of all kinds of topics. Categorizing the forum helps to find things.)

So the idea is to first find the area of the forum that suits your topic to post about or to find information about. Then visit the child forum sections for specific areas of your topic. I hope that makes sense.

If you see a Post Reply or New Thread button near the top-left of the window then you know you can create your own thread or post. (Creating a new thread is posting a new topic of discussion.) But you need to be logged into the forum before you can post.

The FAQ at top left of screen is where you can find some extra information about the meanings of certain things on the forum.

Yes I can see what you mean but I have been posting on Bulletin sites for years and Ive hardly ever had any problems with them its just the ones that haven't been configured to be user friendly that have the problems.I read the sticky here on how to post a thread and I couldn't follow it because it didnt make sense? If I remember correctly it said to go to the top of the page on the left where it says site feedback there is something under there to click? But there wasnt anything to click and I couldn't go any further than that? Its like having a 300 page preface to a book before you can read it. This is just a Bulletin forum site why cant it be just that? All the others are easy to use,whats wrong here?

Default Starting a new Topic

Hi Zippy

I am in your age group, having formally retired some two years ago, and I have been posting to this forum since May 2004.

I know it can seem daunting but once you get into it you will find that it is quite easy to make a posting.

OK, I can help you to get started, let me know what topic you want to discuss and I will start it off for you.


UK Bob

I'm quite capable of posting if I am allowed to do it? If I click on quick links then Mark Forums Read.to find a subject to post on I'm taken to a page that says I have an invalid security token? It says to contact the administrator to get things fixed?(or words to that effect) So Ive done that and here I am again with the same problem?

I am not sure why you would be receiving the security token issue. There is a possibility of this happening if you used the browse backward in history of your browser to a post you were in process of posting or editing, or a similar scenario. Other than this, it might be related to your browser's cookie settings for this site.

If you wish to find a topic you are subscribed to, you can click on UserCP top-left of screen to find your User Control Panel. In this window find the Subscribed Threads heading in the column on the left side and click on List Subscriptions. This will list threads you have subscriptions to. By default members are subscribed to threads they created or posted to. Threads can also be manually subscribed to via Thread Tools.

Hi Zippy

I am not sure why your are clicking "Quick Links", why do you not just click on either "Post Reply" or the "Post Quick Reply" button to join an existing discussion.

That is the easiest way to reply to someone's post or in an open sub-forums click the "New Thread" button to start a new topic.

Hope this helps.


UK Bob

How am I supposed to subscribe to a post/thread if I cant even start one? Ive had next to no trouble at all on any other Bulletin forum except this one? It just makes me wonder how many others have tried and given up in disgust? Who is the webmaster for this site? Thats the person I should be talking to!

How many times do I have to tell you? I cant access anything! Its got to do with a security token. These Bulletin forums are all exactly the same they just have to be configured correctly and this version obviously isn't.I'm getting completely pissed off with this.Who is the webmaster,who configures this site? That is the person I need to fix this.Im starting to think that there is no webmaster for this site,its an ad hoc setup like a dogs breakfast and no-one knows whats going on or this would have been fixed by now.
