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 Connected, but not.

I am still connected, 1 host is online, and it still says it is disconnected. Later on that time, no hosts are online and it says it's connected with the green light on the bottom-left, but it says Disconnected. How come? Please help.

Angry Re: Connected, but not.

... same here ...

I just BOUGHT the LimeWire Pro 2.5.4 and cannot connect AT ALL (I had iMesh before - it connected immediately on the 1st try and the performance was great, but ... too much spyware and I killed it).

Any help?

Thumbs down

And yeah ...

I did read the FAQs and the (so called) LimeWire Troubleshooting Guide (?) that advises you to "make sure you are not behind a firewall"... Of course I am behind a firewall, and I want to stay there. What kind of a lame advise is that anyway? Must I remove the protection or make holes in it just for the sake of this tool??? How come iMesh downloaded a hell of a lot of files and never "mentioned" my firewall?

Why whoever is selling this SW hasn't even got a support phone ... any phone?

It's not about some 10 bucks for nothing.
I'm mad about my wasted time!

Default is it limewire or gnutella?

hmmm, i'm a little confused...are all of these dropped connections and incomplete downloads a dysfunction of limewire or the network itself? what are the alternatives? what is iMesh? i am dying for music but can't stand this anymore...

your download will not complete, if the host from which you are downloading files, decides to go offline, before you are finished. there is nothing that the LimeWire application, nor any other Gnutella application, can do about that. your download should resume the next time you connect, if the file is available at that time.

...by the way, telling folks what you're not gonna do to your firewall, is not the best way to ask for assistance, especially if changing your firewall settings might be the only way for you to connect.

I have been using limewire for over a year and have been behind a firewall the entire time with no problems. However, for the last month I can't stay connected. I'll connect for a few seconds and then all my connections go down. The green light at the bottom is still on but I have no connections up. The incoming and outgoing messages on the connections tab keep getting larger but there are no active connections. Nothing has changed in my setup, firewall, or isp so the problem is with limewire. Why doesn't anybody know why so many people are having the same problem?

When you say your connections go down... are you talking about items you are downloading or are you talking about connected hosts listed in the connections window. I may be misunderstanding what you are stating but I am confused by your statement that the Light stays on and the I/O message keep incrementing yet you have no connections??

I am talking about the connected hosts listed in the connections window. I lose all my connected hosts yet the green light stays on and the I/O messages keep increasing and I have no connections nor am I able to download or search for anything. Nothing in my setup has changed from the time period in which I could download and search to my heart's content.

same problem here, except the red light stays on. I thought it was me, but I'm reading all over the forum about no connections.
