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 WTF is this crap

Well as u probally know, i'm a new user. And my little cousin comes over every now and then. And when she does, she like to d/l stuff like Hilary Duff music videos and crap like that. And she already nows how to d/l to an extent. And i was watching her search for Hilary Duff music videos. And when the search came up i was shocked to see that some of the files were labeled child porn and things of that nature. So i was just wondering, does Gnutella moniter what is able to be d/led or what. Cuz i dont want my little cousin to d/l anything like that and i not know about it, and it stay in my saved files and i get busted for it. Cant Gnutella delete these files or at least prevent them from being put up to d/l. Thx for reading.

Well everybody is free to share what they want to share. 1. Quality of Content on the Network & 2. autogenerated spam results & also Movie download issues And did you apply the adult filters under Tools>Options>Filters ...

Ok i can understand freedom to share what they want, but when its the illegal. I mean maybe in other contries it not, but here in the US, u get fined and prison time for d/ling child porn, wheter its ur fault or not. All they need is the fact that its on ur computer and thats all they need. I mean cant Gnutella trace where exactly these files are being uploaded and report them to the proper authorities.

I am a very new computer user and even newer user to limewire and this topic is something i have questioned myself -- i fully understand it's a sharing sytem but surely the company have a moral obligationto have people check and pursue the people responsible for upping this in the first place !! wots the score !!

I think you chaps miss the point about file sharing. It not a service provided for the public by a bonafide organisation that is answerable to the law - It IS the public and global at that - that's what makes it so fantastically different.

Educate yourself about the risks and benefits, don't wail to have it controlled for you by others.

If you have a serious grievence about the material others are providing don't carp about it - report it if you think it necessary..but are you sure your own file sharing activites are fully moral?

Reference to Lassie's last reply ----- how can you compare file sharing on a par with the people who access disgusting material mentioned above .... and i do think in that particular respect there should me control and a moral obligation for the company to account for them ................. file sharing is not that important !! open yr eyes

Hi paul0107

lassie has a valid point, and she has the right to express her opinion, as you do and have.
