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 2 questions re: app.program and iTunes

I've finally finished downloading an entire book in multi-parts so I won't be spending as much time with Limewire. Afterall, I should start listening to the book <g>. My question is -- although I downloaded and saw many uploads while I was connected, do I have to have the application program open when I'm online. Or is just having the shared folder on my desktop (and the "shared" folder - firewall - checked) adequate for sharing.

My other question is that I just finished a very large item (143.9MB - no bit rate noted). It is in my "Limewire" folder and my "saved"folder. But it did not transfer over to iTunes. I can't "import" it, "add" it or drag it into iTunes. This happened once before and I just forgot about it. This file is one I really want. What can I do to get this on to my iPod via iTunes?

iMac OSX 10.2.8

PS. Although I registered, I noticed I'm listed as a guest and my login is denied because of a wrong user ID?????

re the forum login--try to login again and if that doesn't work, PM on of the moderators like Lord of the Rings.

LimeWire only shares files when it is running. Once quit, other gnutella users can't see or request your Shared files.

Re the big file, you'll have to find out what format it is in. Try dragging it onto Stuffit Expander (applications) in case it is an archive, which would explain why LW didn't send it to iTunes.

If it was a multi-part file that ends in ".rar", you might have to do some googling to find out how to open it on OS 10.2.8

Will contact the moderators once I clear up other stuff. thanks.

Guess that means when I'm on line I will keep the Limewire app open. No problem.

Sorry, the big file was MP3. Same as the other 152 files I've already successfully downloaded. Or, at least, that's what the icon says.<g>

Thanks for the help.

I've heard of that happening before. I'm not sure why b/c I don't have experience with audio books. iTunes cannot recognise all mp3 audio formats. Ogg Vorbis for example, which is why I have a few mp3 apps such as Audion which does recognise that format. If you have that program then try it out on it. It's quite a popular program despite iTunes. It has more encoding options such as lame than iTunes. For lame for iTunes you need to downld a special 3rd party codec. But getting back to the topic try it out on Audion if you can. Audion is one of the few apps that still produces for both OSX & OS9 & it's more than up to date with codecs such as mp3 pro (for what that's worth lol. IMHO) On mac osx I believe Audion is your best bet! You can always convert it from there such as to AIFF. Else try Toast. If Toast can recognise it then it can also convert it.

As far as membership goes, you can get the site to send you a reminder of your password, etc. I had that problem after deleting the cache & cookies of my browser. Learn from ones mistakes.

I tried Audion. It played the item but to convert it to another format would have taken forever. It also did something weird to my iPod. It looked like I dragged and dropped the book into the iPod. The window showed some action. When I checked the iPod, not only did it not xfer, it removed the track names from a good number of items already there. The info was actually still there. It just had to be reminded by a line by line review.

IOW, I think I'll pass on Audion. I'm really not technically oriented and these programs seem to be beyond me.

Thanks anyway.

PS. Sorry for the delay in replying. I lost my ISP. Checking into switching to cable rather than DSL. AT&T is not very supportive of Mac.
