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 Filtering T3 Spammers?!

Gidday

Was wondering if it is possible to filter from our searches all T3's ??

If this function is not already available - can the limewire programmers PLEASE create an option within limewire to limit searches to show only cable/DSL as a max - this would surely get around a lot of the T#3's wouldnt it??

Cheers

Yes it would but not all T3s (and T1s) are bad. Try and avoid for example the ones that serve files that look like this: "L_I_M_E_W_I_R_E" and otehr stuff that look fishy to you.
If you want, you can even IM them (if they have the chat function enabled) and say: "Begone spammer! I command thee!" and other stuff like that.
From where I am, I find only a very small amount of T1+ users of the spammer kind (and in those cases they are mostly T3s, not T1s).
It would be useful to have such a function for users who only seem to get bad results, but it's better if you just tried to be a little more attentive to what you dld.

Cheers

I agree with dropmarshall though. If the ability to select "Show Only results of T3 or Higher" is a possible option, how hard would it be to let us select "Show Only results of T1 or Lower"?


OK so they aren't ALL bad but if they can afford T3 then I'm not gonna feel sorry for them for being excluded from my searches!

T3's are the new lepers.

Banning T3s will stop them from sending you results. But for those of us who have broadband, we need people who have a high upload bandwidth in order to achieve max dld speed. Connecting to more people uses up bandwidth (albeit, not very much). If you connect to 6 Cable hosts, you will probably get the same speed as if you connected to one T3 user, so I still think that it's up to the user to be more careful: watch out for fishy titles, use the preview function, etc, etc...
It's not so much about feeling sorry for them.

I agree it would be nice to filter out t3s. I live in California and I only get t3 responses, but I know there are others out there. I have blocked about 50 hosts an I finally started getting a few cable/dsl returns, but not enought to ensure I don't get corrupt files. 95% of the time, I download every file returned and they are all bad.

There's a very similar post to this in the New Features Request section: T3 or Higher (click to see me.) The idea is to have individual selection for each speed: modem, cable/asl, T3, T1. ie: an option box to tick for each one! A member contacted me yesterday & asked me to check out a particular file. And I found the same results as they did! All T3 files from 3 different version sources were corrupt & one cable/adsl source was fine out of the 4 sources I dwnlded from (keeping in mind that there were multiple sources for each version sourced. ie: each version had different kpbs encoding or difference in title.)

Should I add, most of the different versions (different kbps) were in a very high no. each with lots of sources.

eg: "Strange thing I noticed in my search results is that it didn't seem to matter what bitrate was listed, all files were the same size (some exceptions); be they 128/320 kbps they were listed as 4,395-8 KB. Yeah that is strange! And most sources were T3 which are reknown for offering corrupt files. ... One of the T3's was 320 kbps & the size 7420kbps & that one one also received the corrupt message. One other odd thing! One of my mp3 players listed the corrupt ones as 32 kbps AND had lengths of 18 & 30 mins each."

Of course all the corrupt files were empty space/refused to play! I've heard that complaint on the forum before! Including those that run for half an hour!

* Whilst many such corrupt files came from T3 users, not all T3 users are bad. So best to ignore the reference to T3 users. The important issue made here is the music file bit rate compared to file size. Bit-Rate versus File Size

If you can afford T3 then you must really be rich (or maybe you work for the RIAA ).
