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.

Thumbs down I know Napster.... And Limewire, You are no Napster!!!!


I am a mac user who is expererincing great frustration trying to connect to any hosts.
I recently installed the new version of limewire and ever since i can't make a connection.
I have even tried reinstalling vers.1.4b which at one time worked for me but know that doesn't allow me to mconnect either. Are there any mac users out there that have had some success connecting either with autoconnect or otherwise???? Any hosts that have been good to them???

Do what this guy says, but don't buy an emachine. Buy a REAL computer. (My computer's a Monorail. Cost the same as an Emachine, but it's way more durable.)

I love guys like you. " I Donts know Nothing About NO MACs So's I'se just makes fun of em." First off ya Limey, If the PC was soooooo effin great why is it good ole windows is always looking to pattern their interface to look like the Mac. Secondly in the world of graphic design there is only one machine that matters and that would be a MAC. So unless you wish to find me a new occupation I'll stick w/ it. Thirdly, if I were going to get a PC I'd get a real one not some piece a crap Emachine. Why don't I just run out and get WEBtv or better yet maybe I can find an old Commodore 64 at a yard sale. Sooooooooooo until you get more than 3 channels on your TV's, stop paying 6lbs for a liter of gas, (thats petrol to you),learn the art of dentistry, and find a way to keep the hooves are your damn livestock out of their mouths. I'll Keep my Mac and stay over here on the only side of the pond that matters.

I'm a cinetographer and graphic artist, and I wouldn't use anything less than a Mac for professional work. :-)

mac users are people with interesting jobs...designers, photographers etc...
pc uses are people who fix toasters or wank for a living.

What does it mean to wank? I suspect it doesn't mean what I think (as that is something I tend to do for free). Since I don't fix toasters, I am curious as to exactly what it is I am supposed to be doing with my career choice. I would certainly hate to fall short of your expectations!

It would be very nice if these frequently posting unregistered guests would register. Do you feel anonymous behind that name? Are you too scared to stand and be counted for your opinion?

"Maybe it escaped your notice while you were having your little tantrum but the "Limey" (I assume you meant myself) made no detremental remarks concerning the MAC. On the other hand, the detremental remarks came from 2 unknown persons (as usual) who could very well come from you own glorious land."

Yes you are correct the message was unregistered so I apologize if my mouth got ahead of my mouth, but much of it was meant tongue in cheek. I have just gotten tired of the PC elitists on this board. Yes the Pc is better for certain tasks but it can't hold a stick to the Mac in other areas. If you don't know don't bother to respond. As for litres yes in Europe it is spelled that way but here it is liters ala' color, colour. And yes It was a reference to foot in mouth it is known here as hoof in mouth. 6 pounds ya got me on I thought the abbrev was the same. Honestly i love England it's where I spent my honeymoon and if ya ever get things right w/ your cows i'd love to visit again

Folks,

This Mac diatribe and rejoinder business isn't helping with the problem. Could we deal with the connection issue and knock off the Mac vs. whatever debate?

I posted a "fix" I had found in an FAQ, and it worked for several days, but now is not working. To wit:

"Try typing these host cache addresses into the address field on the Connections tab:

connect1.gnutellanet.com:6346
connect2.gnutellanet.com:6346
connect3.gnutellanet.com:6346
connect4.gnutellanet.com:6346 "

This worked for a few days and now no longer works. Limewire says it's connecting and then one-by-one the connections evaporate from the screen with no connection made.

If anyone can help, it would be greatly appeciated.

Thanks,

Win
