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 Phex 0.8 FINAL released

Phex 0.8 is finally released. After a much prolonged beta cycle Phex boasts many new features, bug fixes and improved resource usage. It will simply give you a more satisfying Gnutella experience.

Get Phex now at :

There are too many new features and changes in Phex 0.8 to list them all here. But here are a few major ones: :
  • Download and Upload Queuing
    With download and upload queuing you will not see many busy downloads anymore. Phex will just stay connected to wait patiently on its turn. This will gurantee you a download slot on busy servents.
  • Partial File Sharing
    Partial file sharing automatically shares the files you download, before they've finished. This allows all users downloading a file to simultaneously share off each other, resulting in a faster and more efficient download experience.
  • Browse Host
    The new host browsing feature allows you to see the shared files available on a particular Gnutella host, and download the ones you want. All from within Phex's search interface, so you can filter and sort files to find what you’re looking for faster. Just right-click on any host, search result, download or upload and choose Browse Host.

    Finally, if you don’t want other host browse-enabled users to be able to list your shared files, simply turn it off in Sharing options!
  • GWebCache support:
    Phex now supports the web-based distributed host discovery system, for faster and more reliable connections.
  • Chat with Phex, Limewire and Shareaza users
    Phex integrates the same chat protocol that Limewire, Shareaza and many other Gnutella servents use.
  • Ultrapeer Connections
    With this release you can now connect with Ultrapeers. This solve all the previous connection problems, and gives you a larger search horizon.
  • Countless suggestions implemented and bugs fixed:
    Every suggestion for improving Phex and reported bugs are noted and considered. As a result, this new version contains a large number of small changes which are too numerous to list here, but each add to the overall experience of the application.

Hi Gregor, Lots of great features added! I am trying the new version right now.

Slight bug maybe. The version says but I downloaded version Anyone else with this problem? Or maybe I should have fully uninstalled 0.33 first.

Here's a couple more bug/suggestions (which I've also added to the Sourceforge site)
* Browsing host works, but there's no full path display so all files are assumed to be in one folder, all first tracks 01 XXX, 01 YYY will show up together in sorting.
* When exiting the program doesn't close, I need to hit crtl-alt-del to shut the program down
* Hashing information doesn't appear to be saved, adding a new shared directory, forces all directories to be re-hashed

If you need any more info, let me know. Thanks.
