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.

Thumbs down 197.7kb & 851.7 kb files!!! suggestion to limewire( spammers/filters)

197.7kb & 851.7 kb files!!! whats up with these files showing up on search results!!! limewire has to do something about this on thier next version!!! because some evil people have a program that detects what people are searching/typing and "bam" these files show up.. I know this because I even tried making up a few names for example: fat blue cat racing. and I would get a search result of; fat blue cat racing.exe or .zip or fat blue cat racing(upgrade).exe size of (197.7kb or 851.7kb).... limewire hase to know about this and block those search results or filter them out in thier next revision update! I even block host ip address (over 550 of them) and still these files show up!! especialy files beginning with ~ or $ or &... Limewire need to find out what software these people are using and/or detect it and have it filtered out!!!!... Also a message to limewire: your software should be able to detect fake files like that and 0kb files.... Too many people will get tired of too many fake search results and your fame will start to fade out like kazaa or like other p2p software that dont exist anymore...

Default suggestion to limewire( spammers/filters)

suggestion to limewire about spammers; thier next software update should beable to detect spammers and their software that reads other peoples search results and returns them with 197.7 & 851.7kb

HERE IS MY SUGGESTION!: in your next software update, in the (options menu) (filters section) people should be able to filter out SPECIFIC file sizes like 197.7kb just like we can filter out SPECIFIC keywords!!! EASY!!!

Have you ever used your Junk filter? That's what it's there for. To help filter out junk. It's a dynamic learning filter so you need to train it by continually adding the junk files to it. Admittedly viruses are the hardest to filter out but they will filter out with time & persistance. Google Overpeer to get an idea of the types of groups who spam the network. Also see other types of spam discussions here autogenerated spam results

Re: suggestion to limewire( spammers/filters)
Keyword filters already exist. If you think filtering sizes will work, once they realise these sizes are being filtered out, they'll simply change their size. Perhaps large in size or identical to the real files in size. So such a filtering technique would only have a temporary effect.

But you're free to make suggestions in the New Feature Requests section.

Default how about adding a file size filter to the "filters"

how about adding a file size filter to the "filters" for example in the options/filters: add ignore specific file sizes like 197.7kb under the keyword filter!!!

i am an egineer i dont need to be told/ scolded if i know how to use filters


and filtering out specific file sizes is a start! also if they change thier file size simply add it to the filter!!! DUH!!

(lord thanx for the fast reply and suggestion)

Default gnutella and its control

...and yes i know gnutells has no coltrol over the files being sent but it can have specific software designed that detects and blocks spammers search results... and i know that we cant have something for nothing... so im speaking for those who actually pay for the limewire pro version & pay for ALL the software that is being used

I wasn't ridiculing you or anything. I was making a practical point. There's already (as of about 6 weeks ago) new spam that's reached the network. These are files that show up as the same size as the original. The way to detect them is they show up with hundreds or thousands of results. With 100 for the 1st, perhaps 99 for the next. These are "fake" files & can't be downlded. That's why size filtering won't work. I believe a size filter would be handy for other purposes (I requested it 2 years ago), but not so for the purpose you were suggesting. Here's another type of spam: Sponsored Results (click on link)

Below is the search results for the new spam of fake files with the 2nd part of the gif being the lower part of the search results. BTW on my mac after several mins of trying to connect to these fake files, they would self-cancel. This doesn't seem to occur for people using windows.

If you're a softw engineer, perhaps you have other suggestions about how to fight these organisations/groups who are trying to destroy the gnutella network.

Default software

thanx for the quick reply)

perhaps i might take you suggestion to write new software to better our gnutella networks!


but i think software can easily be detected also limewire software should be able to search and detect REAL files not auto generated or fake files... it can be easily added to thier next version... id try but its no legal to reverse engineer software and modify it with out permission especialy if its copyrighted

Actually LW is open source. They have lots of contributors. They also offer financial prizes/bounties for those who fix certain issues. I'm not sure of the link but I've asked someone to supply it here when they get time.
