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.

Exclamation More sources needed, tried everything I can find

OK, I have the $20 version of Limewire. I have been going through the posts all morning, looking for something to help me with this, and I think it's because I am on a router, and I know how to port forward, I just don't know the settings.

I am on comcast.
I have a NetGear router.
I have enabled the force port in the firewall settings and chosen it as 6346.
I am on a static IP, because the automatic doesn't allow me to connect to the internet on our home network.

Now. I read about the RAZA. Unfortunatly I got this P2P for only one reason - I want to dl the [Edit] books in pdf format because they're out of print and people are selling them for way more than they are worth. I can only find them on RAZA.

SO, I dl the Shareaza software, thinking it will be better to dl from the source. I am having the same problem there where it is in a perpetual state of "pending". Their help site actually TOLD me how to get the port forwarding to work, gave me the server name, the port (also 6346) and then I put in my IP address, which I think is (at least that is what it is in my network settings under IP and DNS). I even pushed the port on Shareaza. It still isn't working.

I also use Mammouth, for music downloads, which has been working fine, but they don't seem to have the pdfs I need.

How do I make this work to have my life be happy so I can download a few books and then be on my way?

First, there is advantage in forcing your port unless you setup your Router to do port forwarding. If you didn't configure your router properly, forcing your port may have some unexpected side effects.
To configure your router for Gnutella see here:

Don't expect the same performance from a p2p client that you get from e.g. a Web Browser. Try downloading all files you can find containing these keywords and check back after an hour or so. If they did not download, search for the same keywords again and try downloading the results again. Some files should eventualy download, - but it may take several hours up to a few days to complete these downloads because the people sharing it frequently disconnect from Gnutella when you are in the middle of a download.

ursula is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

I am surprised that you report problems with finding eBooks...

I share approx 2,800 ebooks now... Not all at one time as that is crazy, but I do rotate through them in blocks of about 500 being shared at any one time...

At least 1,400 of them are .pdf...

My sharing volume is nothing in comparison to a few out there...
I know one guy sharing over 8,500 eBooks... ALL of them at the same time... HE is VERY hard to grab as far as slots are concerned.

Regarding 'sources' for eBooks, I find that only Gnutella Network and a selection of DC hubs are really worthwhile...

Labelling, in almost all types of files, seems to be becoming worse and worse these days... So, you may want to try other search arguments... Have you tried simply .pdf ? And then, WAIT... I routinely have returns of over 14,000 .pdf files...

Good idea to filter out: temp, sex, erotic, erotik, wicca, comic, comix, engineering, physics, etc.,etc.

Patience is required, honest... I've had eBooks in pending downloads for over 4 months... Wake up one morning and, "WOW, it's there !" Happens all the time...

Don't give up !
Share the gems you do find !

btw, please do not make any references to specific copyrighted material(s)...
