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 XoloX vs. Gnucleus

Rulez/Sux <-- ok, that works fine for a IQ of a fly.

XoloX searches and gets about the same results as Gnucleus every time I tried it, within a few percent.
XoloX downloads/connects to download about the same as Gnucleus in my tests.
XoloX "swarms" and gets parts from several hosts at the same time, so does Gnucleus.
XoloX has three large pretty icons to press at the top of the screen, taking most of your screen space, how nice. "Search, Transfers, Files" are very important and I need them to take up my whole screen. Gnucleus has simple tabs.
XoloX covers up all that techincal stuff so I don't have to worry about it. It doesn't matter anyway, I just want my files.
XoloX crashed three times while I was testing it, Gnucleus didn't, ever.
XoloX right click options are limited and duplicated by a double click anyway and the pull down menus aren't even needed, just add one more pretty icon and it's covered.

Gnucleus will let you see more of what is going on with connections, that doesn't matter because all I want is my file so who cares?
Gnucleus lets you get more information about who you are connected to and who you are downloading from, again I just want my files.
Gnucleus doesn't re-send searches every 10 seconds, that sux because I just want my files.
Gnucleus gives you more information about what files you have shared so you don't share something like your whole C drive. Again, I don't care I just want my files, what is sharing anyway?
Gnucleus has more configuration options, I am confused and never look there anyway.
Gnucleus is supported and open source so you know it will always be available. XoloX has profit motives from the start, read what the founders said about it in other posts, it will have ad-ware eventually.
All lawyers have to do is wisper "law suit" and XoloX is gone. You can't do that to open source. Wait, what does that have to do with me getting my files? Do you think I care?
Anyone can add features to Gnucleus in a short period of time, no waiting for some corporate meeting about it. Anything any other client can do, Gnucleus can do with a bit of coding.

Results of my test:

XoloX is the AOL of Gnutella
Gnucleus gets me the same amount of files, and has advanced features that let me get connected better to the network.

I ran both and spent the time testing them both, please do the same before posting.
As far as I can tell all this ranting and raving "XoloX is the best" was back when the only other choice you had was BearShare, and even a fly has enough nurons to know that anything is better than BearShare

I used XoLoX before it went out of devlopment and I connected faster had more consistant downloads. When the XoLoX folks ran out with thier tails between their legs I went looking for a new client and found Gnucleus. Why is Gnucleus not on the top five list at zeropaid, If they promoted it half as much as they do XoLoX it would be the top program.
Winmx, am I missing something? I can never, never, never get the file I am looking for, Oh I can find it alright I just can not download it. Same holds true for most all Gnutella clients as well.
As long as Gnucleus continues to be improved (and because it is open source it will always be under devlpoment) it will be the best.
I will try XoLoX to be fair but I am waiting for a new version of Gnucleus, It just gets better and better.

How often do you will post this?


Or is your problem that Xolox is not open source?
