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.

my main problem with kazaa is TOO TOO MUCH AD WARE.
GOT SO MUCH FROM THEM HAD TO RE FORMAT HDD.
LIME DESCENT DOWNLOAD RATE DEPENDING ON WHO ANDHOW MANY YOU ARE DOWNLOADING FROM.

WHAT DOES MAKE ME ANGRY IS SOME USERS SET THIER UPLOAD TO 0 kbs.
I got a file that is 98% but 1 user every time I get connected to him/her I get 0 kbs and put back on waiting list. at the back of course.
lime needs somekind of boot off for people like this.

remember this is p2p SHARE.
Dear sir,

if you do not like spyware, use kazaalite k++ version:

Kazaalite k++ home!

I think I want to change my answer. At first when I just started gnutella I really noticed a lack of swarming capabilities (and thus slower downloads) because of the lack of hosts. But since that point I have completely changed my mind as the quality and number of shared files on kazaa seems to have gone downhill. I think the RIAA might have actually managed to put the fear of God into the Kazaa people.

Anyway, now I'm inclined to say that the only reason Kazaa is so popular now is because its a bigger name between lusers, someone asks for a good filesharing program and everyone knows kazaa so they tell them that.

I think we forget another very simple reason: KaZaA is easier to use.

Searching for an artist and limiting to 196kbit/s can be implemented as an UI-feature. Phex has filter-options for that ( http://phex.kouk.de , or look in these forums), Acquisition allows you to set a minimum bitrate, but no maximum.

I think, a better UI would give LimeWire far more Users. Look at Acquisition on the Mac, it nearly has the monopoly in p2p here (aside from acqlite and some phex users).

Network performance isn't everything (though it is important).

heh, actually, thats something I never even thought about. I use linux or BSD so I never even thought about how the UE on a windows box might be unsatisfactory for most clients since I'm inclined to prefer a harder to use but more customizeable client.

I really wish GTK-Gnutella would be ported to windows. It's my favourite Linux/UNIX client, and GTK has been ported to Windows for some time, so I think that that would pretty much rock.

After all, not all nerds out there are using Linux, and I'm sure many Windows-using nerds would really appreciate a client like GTK-Gnutella.

My opinion is the old press coverage of Kazaa, increased by its legal problems, caused by the fact that a single company controls officially the FastTrack protocol, whose development is not targetting users for users, but Kazaa's own business plan.

Due to that, they create a network that they want to control completely to avoid access by foreign servents, and they have a big influence on that network which is very attractive for the RIAA/MPAA/BSA alliances.

Well Gnutella is very popular now too, but it can be used very often for something else than what a servent developer would like. Gnutella is not controled, and this gives an advantage now to Gnutella, which continues its slow progression, with several good servents developed with public objectives, and now available without any spyware, adwarea or bundles like Kazaa, and supported correctly (I would not download one of those Kazaa-like copies: not sure about their content, and it is well know that it really creates a storm of settings in the network configuration, in installers, etc...).

Try to uninstall safely Kazaa, you'll regret it. The only safe option is to use the Windows XP system snapshot to come back to before its installation: the Kazaa installer writes things everywhere on the system, and will slow down its performance even when you don't use it.

Where is the "People love to get lots of virus and malware loaded files" option?
