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.

Cool no difference with LW Pro 4.4.5

Greetings!
I just upgraded to LW 4.4.5 and I can't see any difference! I still get interrupted downloads and realllly slow downloads. Do I need to make some adjustments? My system is Windows XP Home version with a DSL connection.

Cool The info you requested.

Thanks for your help, I hope the info I have will be sufficient to your needs.
Dell 4600 P4 3.06 GHz w/HT
Win XP 2000 Home
1024 MB DDR SDRAM @333 MHz
258 Memory
unsure of what "HDD" stands for.
This is a repeat message due to the fact I couldn't find my reply in the forum. Again, I hope this is enough to help clear up why LW Pro 4.4.5 doesn't behave any differently than the standard version.
Thank you for your assistance.

There are not that many differences between the basic version and pro version. The basic version connects to 3 Ultrapeers and the pro version connects to 5 Ultrapeers. There are differences also but they are subtle.

I'm not quite sure by what you mean on interupted downloads.

In your search screen next to quality you will see this #. The higher the number there, the more sources/hosts have that file, and the better chance for a succesful d/l. If the number is low or none, and they disconnect, then you will have to wait for them to reconnect, or another host with that file to connect.

If you look over a little more you will see speed. That shows what type of connection the host(s) for that file have. You have to remember that the d/l speed is dependent on the host(s) u/l speed and how many are u/l from them also.

Just a little trick I learned from Peerless a week or so ago was that if you increase the maximum no. of downloads to say 50. This may help your d/l speed by allowing you to connect to more hosts that have that file. 1)tools 2) options 3) downloads - maximum number of downloads.

Hope this helped explain it.

BTW: HDD=Hard Disk Drive

Default interrupted d/l's

Fabion,
Thanks for getting back to me so soon! As to what I mean by interrupted d/l's, I have several that have stopped dead at anywhere from 7% to 64% complete and they just sit there going nowhere! I try to keep alot of d/l's going but some speed to completion while others are in limbo waiting for sources, no matter how many stars they have or sources they claim to have. I understand the fact that most of what I recieve is dependent on the host and their traffic and speed. What I am curious about is, if there is no major difference between the standard version and the Pro version, what exactly did I pay for when I "upgraded"?

I have 3 suggestions & they'r all here in this post: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showth...threadid=34114

No make that 4. If you have a lot of old incompletes at 0%, then get rid of them. Delete them from the downld window also.

Cool How To...?

Fabion,
Sorry to keep bothering you, but... How do I find out my U/L and D/L speeds? I got some instructions from Murasame but, I don't know the speeds of my system. I know I have a 56K modem if that's any help at all.
Thanks for your continued help!

If I can but in. But 56 modems are 56 kbps/8 = KB/s minus overhead.

Your connection is 56kbps total. That means that upload & download comes out of that total of 7 or less KB/s. I was a dial up user up until 5 months ago & have use LW for a few years.

That's compaired to adsl where you get a separate speed for both upload & downld. eg: mine at present is 264/64 which is about 25-7 KB/s after overheads have been subtracted & about dial up speed for uploads.

The rest I'll leave up to Fabion to answer for you. ciaou

Cool dsl AND a modem !?!

First of all I want to thank all who offer their assistance. Now, on to matters of great importance (to me anyway). I am currently subscribing to a high-speed dsl internet provider, but, I also have a modem. My question is, which applies? The modem or the dsl? I noticed there are both when choosing a speed in the options area.
I have made the adjustments suggested in your last communication and I still have d/l's that are only partially complete and are stalled. What next?

Hmm not totally sure on this one as I have an external modem that is connected to my ethernet net card, and you stated earlier in this thread that you had a 56Kb/s modem.

But if it is an external modem such as mine, connected buy USB or ethernet. You can select dsl/cable. Your ISP should have informed you what your connection speed is, as there are various types (ie. 256 KB/s or 1.5 MB/s).
