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.

The other night I was dl'ing a file and it was almost 200KBPS transfer rate!!
Now show me a client that will give that to you for free! And even tells you when an update is out and lets you select what type of update you want.

i get 300-500kb/sec on IRC easily.

Is TrustyFiles. It does have alot of negatives (very persistant popup ads - my poor adwatch is exhausted), and it went through a period of time when it kept closing after opening, then suddenly cured itself. The positive is that it connects to 4 Gnutella networks (Bearshare, Emule, and 2 others), and I was able to find things I couldn't find anywhere else.

The negative about sharing on more than one network at one time of course is the sacrifice in bandwidth & affect it has on other networks. There's at least one network where you can only downld as fast as you upload. Then if people are uplding from you one one or more networks, what happens to people on the other networks you're connected to? They suffer!!! They either can't connect or get incredibly slow downlds from you. That's why multi-network programs tend to not work so well whilst they allow multi-network connection at one time. On Gnutella, I'm sure most people would be aware how slow & unreliable Shareaza (Raza) can be. This also applies to the others such as morpheus & Gnucleus, etc. This is not an opinion, it is fact. If these programs only connected to one network at a time, then problem solved. (else dedicating a minimum of 5 KB/s per upload slot per network connected to at the time might work if there's the bandwidth to allow this.)

I, for my concept, use the giFT plattform, it's very easy to use and connects to the nets that it has plugins for, it is so efficient, GNU and GPL licensed, no crapware, no ads, no PRO version (only one free version), it's excellent, for now, i'm connecting to G1, G2 Aresnet and OpenFT

I usually use Shareaza only with G1 and G2, that way, i limit the amount of pain, specially, not downloading from Edonkey (unlimited queue times)
