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 Upload speeds

One thing I don’t understand is why my Upload speeds are always like 1, 3, or 3Kbs. Even if only one or two songs are being uploaded, and even when the computer is doing absolutely nothing but serving songs. It seems with my 750K cable connection – which is not being used for anything else at the time -- even dial-up users should be able to upload at faster rates than that.

Actually, I should point out that it doesn't always start out that way. At first the uploads go out at a good clip. But the upload speed deteriorates over time. (The number of files available in the title bar seems to drop dramatically as well, over time).

It’s not because my upstream bandwidth is limited, like in some cable connections. Everything else uploads at full speed. It’s just uploads on the Gnutella network that are so slow.

I have fiddled with all the options in the Options dialog box to no avail. I do have about 4,000 songs in my library. But why would that matter?

I’m using 2.7.3 Pro. Everything else is peachy. I just don’t get why the uploads are so slow, consistently. So I guess my real question is: Is there anything I can do to increase the speed of my uploads? (It's OK to answer in technical language, you don't need to spoon feed it to me).

Lightbulb Download / Uploads

Dear Scarecrow,

I assume you are aware that your uploads are limited by the speed of the downloader.
Furthermore what exactly is your maximum upload speed? If you are not throttling the bandwidth using limewire then if more than one person is uploading from you lets say your maximum upload speed is 128Kbps then two people uploading from your will receive apx 64kbps. If two more connect then this drops to 32Kbps per transfer.

Don't forget that limewire measures in BYTES 1 = 8 bits, datacommunication speeds are in bits not BYTES so your 750K connection = (750Kbps /8B) = 93.75KB So in your post you indicate that people are downloading a 1 or 3 (8Kbps / 24Kbps.) Chances are these people are using modems.

Hope this helps.

When I have my speed in LimeWire set to Cable/DSL, I will see uploads drop to 2kb/s. All of them. If I set my speed to T3 or higher, they will go up to +or- 20. Depending on the other users' capabilities. I leave it at T3 so that others can upload faster and I can receive more search results.

Default Thank you

Thanks to both of you. Julie, do you actually have a T3 connection? Or are you saying that just setting your connection speed in LimeWire to T3, even though you don't have a T3 connection, actually speeds up your uploads?

This sounds that your ISP makes use of burstable upload bandwidth. Small transfers move at a fast rate but larger sustained transfers slow down to a lower rate. So acknowledgements sent back to the remote host when you download a file or view a web page move quickly and make use of the burstable bandwidth since they are small in size. Large file uploads move quickly at first due to the burstable bandwidth but then slow down and use the slower sustained bandwidth.

If you say that you have a T3 connection but don't essentially what happens is you are logically moved to the center of the network.

For example :


If the network is made up of rings People with T3 connections (or say that they have) are logically moved to the center of the network while people with slower connections are move off to the edges of the network.

When you connect as an ADSL user, the people uploading from you are likely to be modem and other ADSL users. When you connect as a T3 or higher node, you are likely to see a higher amount of downloads as the people who will download from you will use various speed connections as it stands today most people have the ability to receive data much faster than anyone can send it.

There are very few nodes actually on T3 connections as those are very expensive $15,000 - $20,000 or more per month. Any nodes actually on a T3 doing file sharing are probably housed in someones University or work location.


Hope this helps.

I have a Cable connection. But it seems that the program sets limits on speed. Not the equipment. I would leave it set at my correct speed of Cable, but the uploads are too slow that way. I want people to get their files faster so that others can get theirs, too.

I always set my options to Disable Ultrapeer capabilities because I don't think it was meant for Cable connections. I still don't fully understand the whole "behind the scenes" stuff.
