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.

How can you stop someone who will not share from uplouding from you?

If you are sure that they won't share (an it's not just that they are too busy serving up files already), just delete their upload in the Monitor Window.

Actually, busy hosts show up as unavailable, so it's very hard (and not worth the hassle IMHO) to accurately tell if someone is indeed a leech.

You ban them ..... but don't go yet! It is rarely that simple .

Today I banned a host, I think with justification. He queued up a large list of my tunes and I browsed his share. He was sharing 16 songs. He said he was connected by modem, and yet he was uploading from me at a very good cable speed. I tried to download one of his songs and got the permanently busy message. I believe he was deliberately stopping uploads, thinking possibly that this would speed up his downloads Didn't work he he.

The fact is that for a number of reasons a host may appear to be not sharing, but because of firewalls, strange ip nos like 192.168.xxx, which are in fact not the hosts real numbers ...(not quite sure how that one works but DON'T block hosts using this ip no as suggested in a thread which was posted a year or more ago, as some hosts using that ip no are totally excellent) and simply hosts who download perhaps on their wireless lap top and share from their other computer etc. etc...

I recomend you read this thread, and then decide what you want to do

Better get used to it. My ISP (Cox) is now blocking Gnutella sharing. I have many cool files shared but whenever anyone tries to U/L from me, I see connection error. I can D/L just fine. I bet many more ISPs will do same. This will soon mean the end of Gnutella unless the protocol is updated to combat this ASAP. Well it was nice while it lasted. Anyone know of a reliable file sharing method that give 100% anonymity?

There's no 100% anonymity for the masses yet. The EFF is promoting TOR as a start. http://tor.eff.org/

Good point about upload blocking, though. Lots of users think they're sharing, but don't realize that they may be filtered on uploads and are inadvertently leeching.

Change ISP's, or talk to them about how to get a port that allows filesharing. Worked for me. Does COX allow filesharing (unfiltered bandwidth) on for its higher-priced connections?

Check out the broadband reports http://www.broadbandreports.com/nsea...ox+filesharing

They look to be allowing filesharing, so you may want to check that they are indeed filtering gnutella traffic.
