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.

I just wanted to let you all know that there is a user on LimeWire that has some how figured out how to pop up results on searches by the exact way you type it out. For example, I did a search on a karaoke song and here is how it went....

Not exact words I used, just example:

Search words: Karaoke John Cougar

Result: Karaoke John Cougar modem

Search words: john cougar karaoke

Result: john cougar karaoke modem

Search words: cougar karaoke cougar

Result: cougar karaoke cougar modem

Get what I'm saying here.....

Anybody else ever had this happen to them.... I, of course, did NOT attempt to download any of these......

Would love some feedback. Thanks!

Default I agree

I have noticed that many times i do a search and somthing pops up repeatedly with almost exactly what i searched for. I have AVG antivirus so am very confident it can catch any virus so i often try downloading such files and 10 out of 10 times they are zip files with one file inside named "setup" and are usually around 800 kb in size. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THESE FILES THEY ARE VIRUSES.

I suggest you download a good antivirus like AVG (its free, google it "AVG free edition") because every time i even start downloading i get a message "you have a virus, trojan whatever" and if i choose to leave it when i open the zip file i get another "trojan alert" message. Still have not tried to run said "setup.exe" file dont know what happens after that but i really dont care to try.

In short, there are many viruses and trojans and stuff out there if you see multiple files with the exact same filesize (usually around 800kb) then leave them be.

There i said it my 10 cents worth. Give me your feedback.

Thumbs up Thanks

Very helpful information, appreciate it. I'm new to this whole sharing files thing. I did have AVAST antivirus but it continually locked up my computer... I have the highest speed cable that the local company has to offer, and it slowed my downloads down tremendously. I'll give the AVG a try and will keep my eyes peeled for those 800 kb files.

Thanks again~

How good it is to see a thread on this subject that is posted by sensible people and not the ranters and ravers who are blaming Limewire for being a distributor of viruses and the like. There are a lot of posts on this type of topic and you can search for them using the search feature above right, and the following link is to a sticky on the subject at the top of the forum ... Oh you've probably found this stuff out already
