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 BearShare Lite 5.2.5 - BearFlix???

I downloaded Bearshare 5.2.5 and when it is searching the video files it comes up with this thing above it, like a pop up, about bearflix?

It has the little bear logo then this -

"To optimize your video download experience, get BearFlix
BearFlix is a new FREE Video download software from BearShare. BearFlix has more videos and faster downloads."

Then BearFlix has the url in it.

What is the deal with this? And how do I stop it? Should I revert back to the previous version?

I tried to go back to 5.2.1 but it wouldnt install it. And Im still worried bout these ads now.

It only does it with the movies, but still, for something that isnt supposed to have these "extras" its a bit of a worry....

Default Here's the answer.

Ok so as you know iMesh just bought BearShare. This means Bearshare Basic, Lite and PRO are soon going to be discontinued. Then if you want to download music you will have to get BearShare 6 which is basically iMesh with an orange paint job. The reason for this is that the RIAA sued BearShare but MPAA did not. So BearShare has just come up with BearFlix which is almost an exact copy of BearShare Lite because it has no bundled software. There is also a BearFlix PRO. The major difference between the BearShare and BearFlix is in BearFlix you can only download movies and images. I tested it myself I typed in famous artists and found no results that were audio format i.e. mp3 wma etc. I even searched music and only found music videos. This is BearShare's way of keeping their old program for all other search categories because the new BearShare 6 can only search for music. So within a few months you will need BearShare 6 for music and BearFlix for everything else. Or you could just swith to a different P2P.

If bearshare 6 could just search for music than they should just call it beartunes.

Goodbye Bearshare, it was nice knowing you.

If you use 6, beware of the spyware that it will come with.

The older versions probably won't work for much longer either.

Thank You RIAA you POS.

No way that 5417 would pass my spam filtering.

Who needs Bearflix or BearMesh anyway, cracked or not?
Get b25 with BearStart like I teach and you need nothing else.
