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.

Good idea / bad idea?

Just to reassure you other mods - Who have probably already checked anyway... Ha Ha Ha... - I am NOT using another nick here as pea_pod !

Tend to agree though that we need a "general forum"...

I noticed from a link given as a sig from a senior member: P2PChat Forums has a section called: Cafe » general discussion (Feel free to talk about anything and everything in this relaxed board.) Where they literally talk about nothing in the last thread I read there.

I think the most if not all mods agree to this... CC is the man you have to persuade. I believe we asked him two times... with no result.

.. So that’s a definite No too the appetizers then?

I don’t understand why it’s a bad idea on a practical level? (Are you talking about glorification/ piracy issues/ the law or user misuse?) and yeah... A couple of times when I’ve been staring into space, trying to move the `coke can with my mind` & I’ve read the forum policy. Is it such a bad idea though-?
One teeny tiny little section: (eg: - Images, audio, movies, micellaneous) where all online content queries are contained for the benefit of users interest? I’m not really suggesting a chat section or community- just some where `Joe bloggs`can strictly post- “hey, does anyone know if there’s Guns `n` Roses track Blah blah at 192kb out there, If not,can someone please rip one and share”. (kept to a minimum).

I’d use it and listen to a few requests if within my means.

here, I`ve even thought up an extra little forum policy section for the `all new` request board..

1> No More slagging off britney
2> No sexual innuendo over boy bands
3> No german hard-core porn requests
4> No cross dressing or micheal jacksons
5> No virtual anoraks or geeky people
6> No 2 page essays
7> No soliciting.....(before 12 gmt)
8> No all-male welsh choir orchestra requests

This is against the law and our forum rules.

Did I really post that? Sorry,must have been tired or something..of course I meant: where joe bloggs
can strictly post "hey, does anyone have any 1024 X 786 uncopyrighted image of sunflowers".

Why do women always pick me apart !? Is it cause it`s easy? And I always got on so well with cleaning ladies.

Hey I liked your previous signature of the 'I'm not a frog'! lol

2. You mean Ursula is an AC/DC enthusiast!?!???! Hey they were originally local. But Bon lost it ... a little bit like John Bonham of Led Zepp. 2 bottles too much! The band were never the same after that.
3. Morgwen would have nothing left to search for.
4. Could be a fight on here. ...
7. Rust Never Sleeps!
8. Only Irish in Gaelic or Old English Folk. Hey some of my favourite bands belong to both of those areas. lol Steeleye Span, Clannard or their younger sister Enya.
So is Ursula going to hand out the refreshments.
