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.

Angry Movies not being correct movies

Hi guys..

I am majorly pissed with LimeWire, and I think I am going to stop using it all together, especially if nobody answers this email! I can't email support, so I am posting them.

Every film I download either is:

a) not the film the title says
b) is a completely blank screen (recently with FlightPlan)
or c)PORNO!

Now I never had this problem before, but now it is with every movie. I don't think I've downloaded one movie that was the correct movie in the title.

I would appreciate the answer. If LimeWire can't do anything about it I am going to a different downloader thingy!

I dont think this is Limewires problem

its the problem of the a**holes that are mis-naming their files something else (which LW has no control over)

and believe me... it ****** me off to no end that they do it....

the best thing to do is preview a file early on in the downlad

great idea!

I haven't had this problem with other software (when I used it, but I've been using Limewire for a few years now)...

Are they having this problem to?

STOP IT A$$****S! NOT NICE! (that wasn't to you, but the a-holes in general )

1. Movie download issues

2. Learn to use bitzi to see if there's any user feedback for the particular video file; How to use Bitzi Web Lookup ...

3. Yep previewing also does the trick. But be aware that everytime you preview a file, it leave a copy of the file called PREVIEW - (filename).(vid extension) in your incomplete folder. So after downlding the file, arrange the incomplete folder by name or date & delete the preview files.
Personally I just drag & drop the video from the incomplete folder onto one of my video players/double-click it. I use VLC for most previewing since it handles incomplete files very well.

I just started using Limewire and I am amazed at the problems I am having finding movies that actually match the title. Like somone else on here, I've downloaded 4 movies and they are all wrong. Might be technology but more likely it's the people sharing the movies.

I've used other P2p sites and have not encountered this problem.

I think this is a big enough issue that there should be a sticky right on the forum front page to request that everyone NOT to share their files if the title naming is not correct.

Meanwhile, I'm moving on to another site.........

You don't like gnutella fine. Move on!!! That's fine rick_dallas if you don't like gnutella then fine po! We'll remain a family of non-backkickers unlike those who don't give a damn about the network except their own petty irrelevances. Keep to Dallas, it's where you belong. I guess it depends where your priorities are. Your's are obviously I, me & myself & cover me in mirrors.

I haven't decided if you don't understand English or you do, but just are an idiot!

Do you not think that people sharing files should label them correctly?

Do you consider not labelling something correctly petty?

What kind of drugs are you on?

You can bet that when I share with other people, anything they get from me will be what they are expecting to get.

Why is that a difficult concept for you?

Guess cause it makes too much sense........

Other sites I've used don't have this problem but based on your response, you're probably one of the idiots who don't see anything wrong with doing this.

I agree with Rick. I've never had this issue before and now it is huge. You can tell us to move on, but that isn't very professional and eventually everyone will move.

Also, I paid for LimeWirePro a few years ago.... I would NOT pay for it now... I think it is to their benifit to know.
