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.

Default Limewire 'Doomed'...?

According to a recent judgment, it may be.

To me it looks like Mark Gorton in a serious power position i.e. dump all charges and I help you turn 50 million users into paying customers.

Ohh... forgot one small thing. The recording industry exec's are the most moronic creatures on Earth, so they won't even see the probable profits.

It's amazing how many 'stand-up' guys lose their legs when they enter a courtroom. And this guy's not even facing criminal charges. I won't be surprised if Gorton ends up working for the RIAA.

Keep your fingers crossed, cootmaster, Frost may yet have its day.

In my oppinion, this is a pretty big blow to p2p, but only because 60% of all p2p users use limewire. Unless the RIAA does something to stop the NETWORKS that these applications use, I really have a hard time seeing an end to p2p. I suppose this would scare a lot of the CEO's and what not of these apps though. Never really thought a lawsuit would ever go through, but seeing that one did for limewire, whose to say it won't for others?

Also, here's an update. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/201...ire-filtering/

It appears as though they now want to make Limewire into a paying site.

Well BCI

I agree that Limewire seems doomed, once it's creators are put out of business and no more updates or upgrades are forthcoming then Limewire will slowly but surely die.

Whilst each has its own different story, Shareaza and Bearshare were sold out. Quote: "(iMesh 8, Bearshare 7, Lphant 4, and ShareazaV5 are one product.)" Since Bearshare code was not open source we are stranded with the last decent versions of Bearshare 5. Later versions afaik do not even use the gnutella network. (There is at least one privately developed version of Bearshare called Bettershare that is arguably a continuation of the original program on Gnutella.) Likewise Shareaza splintered. Shareaza was open source coding so the coding is still developing for it for the Gnutella network. Whilst versions above Shareaza 4 are equivalent to Bearshare 6 & above, just different label.

Keep in mind LW was never fully developed on it's own, it was always and still is contributions by others. FrostWire was started in the event of LW being sold out. Likewise there are many other LW versions that float around (some for scam sites dare I say it.)

There are other gnutella programs around that are open source and still being developed. Phex is a good example, though due to work commitments by the main dev., I believe development has slowed in recent times.

I'm curious how the Gnutella network itself would develop in future if LW is sold out.

Since most spammers on the Gnutella network use LW, I wonder if one day in distant future we will see a strong suggestive push to block LW; ie: whilst everyone else is using FrostWire, Phex, Gnucleus, Gtk-Gnutella, Bearshare 4/Bettershare, Shareaza 2, Morpheus, etc. ie: blocking LW ultrapeers and uploaders.
That's a bit of a wild thought but depends what happens in future.
