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. 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.

okay hears what has happened. i come back the next day and try again and my computer picks out 400 different things wrong after i activate the blockers. i kill um all, restart, kill, rinse repeat and i have gotten rid of about 500 things now.

my bar is still 1/5 with red. i disabled kazaa and i shouldnt have to worry about their crap anymore.

i was reading one of the other posts and you said that i needed leafs to connect to other hosts. i disabled ultra-peer, but i didnt know if that was the same. do i need addresses of hosts like ###.#.#.# or something?

i figured that LW would do that for me. everytime i try to search for something, the message pops up and states "LW is currently connecting to the network. your search may not return many results until you are fully connected" which i imagine is 4-5 bars.

i got zone alarm because my friend told me it was better then the windows firewall. i have both on. is that bad? i have the two ports that the LW site said to open and i checked all 4 of the limewire datas including a "swarmed installer" and "lexpps"

i heard from another friend that java was needed to get everything started as well. LW didnt automatically do that for me, so i went to java. com and got whatever free program they had. that was back when the program wouldnt even open for me.

the program then opened and now im left with some funky networking errors.

are they on my part and what more guidance can you give me, o wise helper?

you never ever enable two firewall at all, you see, that the reason why they are causing it, if you enable them both, they are DYING to take control, they DO anything to take control of your network and await for your command. Disable XP Firewall, then start limewire, then enable Ultraleaf/UltraPeer, then try the search

the only time I enable the Windoze Firewall is when I am updating the OS...for some reason I can't get in using Nortons, and of course I can when using the Windows wall...

ok, i disabled the windows firewall, i altered around with the ultrapeer settings, and yet i still have a crappy connection.

argggggggggggggggggggg

i don't know what i'm doing wrong now. i've almost everything, and everything seems to work.

is there something on zone alarm or something that should be enabled that i maybe don't?

does it matter that i got my java program seperate from the limewire download?

i'm starting to get perturbed at this frigging program because it works for everybody except for me. because i set up all of the networks and everything and i tryed troubleshooting at the other forums and stuff, and nothing seems to be working.
