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.

Exclamation about gnutella network

I have serious doubt about Gnutella network nowdays, its not working as it should.Inspite of all features that comes out on the clients like ultrapeers, leafs, swarming, SHA, magnet-links and so just doesnt help! What all those features have done as far as i can see is substancially lowered my network horizon to a fraction of that it one time was.This means of course that im feeling seriously enclosed within a boundary not able to reach out (very frustrating indeed, I think many agree with me here), at the same time not able to get my hands on new fresh files from new people that are on there, but cannot be reached becuase my horizon is so extremely small. Let me also say this i have been running Gnutella for about 2 years now with various clients. The latest is now Limewire.

I start to believe that the Developers of clients are completely snowed in with their technical stuff, and doesnt see the end user side or even reality side of things, take this ultrapeer and leaf stuff, as i see it this feature was meant for old modem users that could become leafs without pulling to much traffic around. But the reality is that more and more people are moving over to broadband every day, and the most common form of broadband is ADSL. So what is the idea of making the gnutella a lean running network, if not to reduce the size of it seen from the end user point of view! One question is why on earth has Kaaza become so successful, my answer to that is easy, then a Kazaa user connects to Fast-track he or she will instantly see this huge horizon over people that are connected but also the vast amount of files that are out there and all this instantly, without to wait for hours. So what the Developer of gnutella clients must do is to produce the same type of feeling as the kazaa has in order to be successful, otherwise gnutella will never pass the 100 k mark.

This is what i think the situation looks like today, the majority of people have kazaa as their main filesharing client, and only running gnutella occassionaly the problem with this is of course that most time is spent on Kazaa, rather then other way around. Also that these "kazaa" users running gnutella is treaten it the same way as kazaa, type connect-grab some files-disconnect directly. So the most Gnutella users doesnt seem to have a faintest idea over how gnutella works, this means of course that Gnutella user must spend much more time online then kazaa users. So i think this freeloader mentality is comming from kazaa users mainly.

Now to something else that irretates me, concerning clients as a whole, why on earth does the hosts have to be the same brand as the client runned, well atleast mostly of the time!? also why are the most downloaders mostly of same brand!?
i DONT WANT TO SIT IN A SMALL CELL OR POOL ON GNUTELLA NETWORK!! becuase this is the way we are treated gnutella users! So Gnutella developer stop be so brandy.

Ok this is my situation right now. I have been watching Limewires network statistic over some days now. And this is how it looks like most of the time:
Im running ADSL-512 full duplex, with Limewire 2.8.5, im running as leaf, becuase Limewire doesnt allow me to be Supernode. and the result is..Im not impressed!

Current Hosts: 3 (my settings are for 6 hosts but will mostly never accours)

Total Hosts: >800 (have never passed 1000 mark)

Total Files: >200.000

Total File MBs >900.000

And once again this is how it looks like every time i connect to Gnutella, it never changes to any positiv side. giving the feeling again that what im seeing is the same old folks out there as before with their never changing files, sort of speak.

So finally Gnutella users, are you feeling the same thing as me!?..Well how about then to speak out about those feeling, and not just wine about connection problems and download problems all the time, speak out like me for god sake!.
