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 disconnects on its own?

I connect limewire and all is fine then when I come back hours later it has disconnected and interupted up/down loads. this was never a problem before but the last few days its has done this every time. its is not a firewall issue(as no brick wall). some times it may disconnect after 20 mins and other times several hours. I normaly let it run in the system tray, I am running limewire pro 4.10.5 . I am running avg antivirus also when I open limwire from desktop the opening screen is blank and does not load and I end up having to close window and open from system tray, also the memory for atrist/albums has erased all info but not of my doing and this all happened the same time. WTH

Close LW. Remove all Java versions you have installed using the add/remove control panel. Then reboot. Then re-install Java but try this version http://java.sun.com/javase/6/download.jsp JRE "Offline" version which is a 14 MB download. LW won't use it if there's any other Java versions on your computer.

This one:

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Release Candidate
The Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications.

Not sure if it'd make too much difference though.

Can you help us with these details: System details - help us to help you (click on link)

You wouldn't happen to be with Shaw Cable would you? See them listed here ISP's known to BLOCK or Filter p2p or specifically Limewire

That's often how it happens. They detect you using a lot of bandwidth then set the dogs onto you (p2p filters.)

Default trouble downloading

I have had the same problem with being unable to make connections. I use charter, so i cant imagine having a problem with filtering or blocking. I have tried about 30 files, all with under 20 sources, and have gotten nothing. I have had the same problem with bearshare, but i assume the problems are one and the same, as bearshare uses limewire sources sometimes. It is hard for me to believe that the majority of files on limewire are fake files. As i have seen a large number or recent posts on this issue, i wonder what on earth is going on??!! I also use bearflicks, and all of the sudden, a few days ago, the majority of the movie files that were just recently on there disappeared. I think that something deeper is going on, and wonder if perhaps gnutella is starting to cave to production companies??

It looks like lauritastlouis is suffering the same type of problem with Charter. We've had a lot of complaints from Charter users with the same issue.

Shaw is reknown to be doing this. Other forums also have noted the same thing. And I think the company at some point admitted it. But I might be wrong about that because I haven't researched Shaw for many months.
