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.

Try it. QuickTime .mov is such a vague term because it still might be any number of formats. It could be mpeg 4, or non-compressed, or ... depending upon the codec used to convert the file. I just tried one with VLC & it played. But it was encoded with mpeg 4.

Not easy to know. Sometimes VLC or QT player will show you the info. Get information for that file once it's opened. QT is menu bar, Window menu, Get movie info.
VLC is window, information.

That seems to only apply to some windows users that VLC won't preview. So all I can suggest is you go to the LW Library window, select incomplete folder, select the file you're downloading & press Launch. This will work. It also stops LW creating a preview file which it stores in your incomplete folder. Another way is to select incomplete folder, press Explore button, arrange by date modified, find your file near top of list & double-click.

I personally prefer doing these techniques as I don't like LW creating preview files & then me having to delete them later from the incomplete folder.

Thanks Lotr for advice i.e. launch, Iv'e been deleting preview files til now,will try launch,thankyou. any advice on my windows FWall,got router with FWall,then deleted Zone Alarm(Which I miss ) and enabled windows FWall(ZAlarm was interferring with file sharing,and i didnt need 3 FWalls!!) but windows FWall keeps turning itself off on reboot,not everytime but most, Very odd.( reason for windowsFWall is told to have one as safety net) any ideas? thought i'd try reinstalling ZAlarm and not using windows FWall, but ZAlarm interferres too much with settings.so re-enabled windows and again got rid of ZAlarm.Phew, so intermittent windows FWall is the least worst problem,did that make any sense?? I'm starting to lose it after router nightmare !!
Thanks again. newbee2
PS computer is as far as I can tell,free of viruses etc...

On micro$oft's site they did recommend against using more than one software firewall at one time. They have removed or moved that reference. But almost all FW companies say the same thing. Because it can result in less security not more. They can clash when run together.

Yes I agree, router has integral FWall, two people who are far more ''up to speed'' than me(NOT HARD) I might add! recommended that it would be a good idea to re-enable windows FWall,(I also miss ZAlarm because I can deny some windows prog. like MPlayer updates,and access to net) I admit to being a little scared of just relying on router FWall, Do you advise not using windows FWall?
Many thanks for answer so far,
newbee2
