Forum Rules

Support Forums

Before you post to one of the specific Client Help and Support Conferences in Gnutella Client Forums please look through other threads and Stickies that may answer your questions. Most problems are not new. The Search function is most useful. Also the red Stickies have answers to the most commonly asked questions. (over 90 percent).
If your problem is not resolved by a search of the forums, please take the next step and post in the appropriate forum. There are many members who will be glad to help.
If you are new to the world of file sharing please do not be shy! Everyone was ‘new’ when they first started.

When posting, please include details for:
Your Operating System ....... Your version of your Gnutella Client (* this is important for helping solve problems) ....... Your Internet connection (56K, Cable, DSL) ....... The exact error message, if one pops up
Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you. To aid helpers in solving download/upload problems, LimeWire and Frostwire users must specify whether they are downloading a torrent file or a file from the Gnutella network.
Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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. 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 How to create a New Thread; Your First post .. how to start it

New to forums? Check the FAQ to help get you started Forums, Threads and Posts

Find the section of the forum that most suits your topic. And double-check by looking at the short description of the purpose of the forum section just near the top of the page. eg: above you will see Site Feedback For feedback on Gnutelliums and Gnutella Forums.
For feedback on a specific Gnutella client, please post in one of the forums above; ie: Current Gnutella Client Forums


Then find and press the New Thread button just below that description to the far left of the page near the top. This will allow you to create your own new thread. Of course, you should detail your thread as to your problem, details of your computer system, etc. Newbie's Guide To Writing A Good Thread is a simple guide and for system details: System details - help us to help you (click on blue link) and post in accordance with the Gnutella Forum RULES.

Before you post a new thread, do a forum search to see if a similar problem has not been previously answered using forum search function & checking forum section posts, and if there are red Sticky's at the top of the forum section, then be sure you have had a look to see if there's no previous answer to your issue. Example of a Sticky: MAJOR TOPICS for Open Discussion HELP. Stickies are answers to commonly asked questions.


See sample image below to create a New Thread & see what Sticky listing looks like in a section index listing:

How to create a New Thread; Your First post .. how to start it-new-thread.gif (click thumbnail to see large view)


New to forums? For more information about how this forum works, click on the FAQ link here or above.
A thread is the entire collection of posts under one topic. A post is an individual post by a single member.

Links are the underlined words in blue which will show an orange color if you hover your cursor over top. Clicking a link will take you to a different url page on the forum or a different site. Members sometimes give links to help you find your answers easily & quickly.

Who are the forum leaders: Forum Leaders page, which lists the Administrators, Super Moderators, Section Moderators, and Valued Members (VM's are members who are reknown for helping other members on these forums.)

Just a note: After posting a new thread or a post reply and you see a note that says 'Your post may be held in queue for Moderation', be patient! It means your post has been sent but is being held to be first checked by a moderator for approval before it can be seen in the forum. So PLEASE do not repeat your post. It will eventually be seen by other members within hours at the very least.

For those people having problems finding their posts after returning to the forums, Click on the User CP button top left of window & it will take you to your User Control Panel. This should show all your subscribed threads. For older subscribed threads, click on the Subscriptions tab down the side of your control panel. Example image below:




Navigating the Forums: The larger the forum, the more difficult it can be to navigate. The Forum Jump (drop down menu) is a good way of seeing which section you need to go to.

The forums are broken up into these sections: 1. Gnutella Client programs help sections (eg: LimeWire, Phex, etc.). . . . 2. Non-english forum sections for Gnutella Client program help. . . . 3. General Gnutella sections; These sections include general discussion about Gnutella Network development & programming, . Tips & Tricks with files that apply to 'all' users, . Lounge which is an open discussion section, . Introduction forums, . fun & games section.


Thread listing icons. Below shows some clues about what each one means. These are shown to the far left of each forum listing.
A thread is the entire collection of posts under one topic. A post is an individual post by a single member.
