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.

Cool I want to add some functionality to Phex

I've been interested in Gnutella technology ever since I used to play Starcraft and was designing ways of having a fair tournament without hacking.

There are many things I'd like to add to a Gnutella client, but the first and easiest would be a solid file leeching process.

Instead of a general search, you enter a search string and an extention... You click on leech and leave the room... Maybe enter how many bytes you want to dl before you call it quits.

The program will constantly be trying to download those types of programs. When your computer recieved its fill, it will switch into share mode until you come back to your puter.

I'm ok with java just a lil rusty, I want to add a button called leech, a text field for file extention, and then I'm interested in:
#1: Being able to search in a way that would be useful to retry(I heard searching the same phrase is pointless)
#2: Being able to automatically add all files from the possile search results straight into downloads.

Then maybe a way to switch into sharing mode when its over(not a priority for me)

It should be kinda easy, but I'm asking for help on what classes I should be interested in.

Thumbs down

I once followed a discussion in a different forum about such functionality. After all I have read about it I don┤t think Phex will ever implement that. I believe it is more than comfortable to start a search and choos a variety of files from the result which Phex will then download automatically. Downloading all file swhich match a certain search would seriously decrease the net┤s performance. And as you would most likely dump 90% of the downloaded files it really wouldn┤t be worth it.

So Phex allows the download of a certain file name from any computer...

Any idea to add in functionality for user's to define these lists, and save them... Say if someone wants to make an episode directory?

Then new users would only need to download and: 2x click Phex episode directory for the list of items...

Then Phex would auto download all their files!

Would draw ALOT of attention towards phex when everyone starts seeing on the internet:
Phex complete episode/album autodownloader for their favorite files....

So I'm not really cohereant... This is the repost in more readable terms.

From what I understand from konrad_h's post is that Phex has the functionality for a person to select a file name, and then Phex will download that file from ANY computer, not just the one selected.

I believe expanding this functionality would be a phenomenial bonus.

The expanded functionality would be as follows:

A person can create a full list of downloads one wants and be able to save this list to load up at a later time.

This list would not be a straight list of files, but instead(due to bad file naming conventions), be a list that has items that can be combines using an or operator.

IE list would look like this:

Everything you wanted to know about Frogs.Phx
1: Frog Diary 1.htm
1: Frog Diary One.htm
2: Frog Diary 2.htm
2: Frog Diary too.htm
2: Frog Diary two.htm
2: Frog Diary to.html

The first listing is how the file would be renamed when saved on the person's own computer(helps standardize file naming too)

So when this person downloaded, regardless of which files, it'd appear as:
Frog Diary 1.htm
Frog Diary 2.htm

These files would allow the casual user to simply 2x click and get everything they want instead of doing a painful search and looking through crazy filenames and wasting time... Just 2x their list file and they're set!

To implement this, simply allow experts understand how to hand edit the file...
Later when man hours can be invested in code: List editing + List combination methods could be created. List editing could be done with creative use of the UI.

I think it'd be really awesome and draw attention to Phex... And not all to difficult to do as well... I know nothing of Phex's code though, and I'm rusty at Java so I can't implement it myself...

I stumbled over this little discussion while browsing the forum again. And guess what: this might be possible in the next release.

I won┤t tell more for now, just be patient and see what we did to Phex.
