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.

Angry BearShare sucks, LimeWire sucks, whatelse???

Hi,

I've always been using BearShare and this servent is about to become real crap. Also the guys who are implementing it seem to have a slight problem with user requests and dealing with other people in general.

So I thought about LimeWire (since Java rules!!!) but reading the threads in their forums here makes me wonder if I really want to install that one. I mean who installs a virus on purpose? I already have IE on my machine (not that I installed that one on purpose ).

Whatelse???

A real while ago I also tested ToadNode (which couldn't even handle more than one connect; caused a crash there) and Gnotella (which I couldn't consider a working program back then).

I've switched from NT to W2K as W2K seems to be more mainstream than NT (not just due to P2P ) and I'm really willing to install a Gnutella-program. But which?

Why is it so hard to write a decent P2P-proggy that actually does what it is supposed to do? Don't get me wrong here but to me the toughest part of it is the routing of the various inbound and outbound traffic and holding an internal buffer with all the information. Ever heard of OOP?

What started as a really good idea once has become commercialized like hell and (therefore!?) more and more is lacking of comfort and usability. So this evolution is going the wrong way. What's coming after Gnutella? I'm waiting already.

All I want is something that
- can download files with resume from more than one host at the same time
- remembers downloads across sessions
- allows me to collect files with different names and sizes into one on my machine
- handles push-routes in a smart way
- doesn't exclude the majority of other servents around
- doesn't install additional crap that noone needs
- queues pending uploads (like FServe in IRC)
- uses +,-," and regular expressions in searches
- multi-window searches not limited to 16

That's what at least BearShare 2.3.0 can't do. If you think it can do it I have the experience that it can't. No need for a whacky GUI or chat.

I had the idea to start writing my own servent but was asked to contribute my ideas to the comunity since there will be a few new proggies out there soon. Ok, my ideas are listed here. Where are the proggies? Will there be any program the suits me?

It's X-mas season and New Year's Eve is coming up. People keep making promises and paint pictures of a glorious future but you don't see me with sparkling eyes. May I make a wish?

I'm sorry for this posting if you find it disturbing. But I'm not in my best mood right now.

Just an info!

I agree completely with Verminator. All I want is a simple P2P client that can search, get relevant results, and download them effectively. A simple user interface would be nice. If you want to make it look all colorful and fancy go for it, but offer an option to make it look like any other windows program for those people who don’t like skins.

I agree about skins. All these apps, each with different skins, makes my screen look like the Las Vegas strip.

Also agree that things should be kept simple. People generally don't need to fiddle around with the number of connections, etc. Xolox did it very well, although there were some limitations IMO. I'll be taking that example in my client.

I say you give two options. The first being a simple napster/xolox style interface. And the other being a feature rich tweakable interface. That way you can satisfy everybody.

Post CPU time

The main reason I don't like skins is (and this is a new one) : CPU time

All these programers asume we all have the latest P4 and such .

Example : LW with it's unresponsive GUI and it's stupid skipping MP3 player

Who needs an MP3 player inside a P2P client anyway ?

What was wrong with that simple "launch" button ?

No , now we have a skipping CPU-eating MP3 PLayer with a scrolling interface .

Bandwidht complaints all over the boards everywhere !
But who cares about people's CPU's pulling all this useless **** ?

People with old P200's will !

I'm posting this rant because I know what working with slow CPU's means .

All these new PC's with speeds like 1.5 , 1.8 and 2.0 GHZ speeds don't even show a difference for the naked eye , you need a stopwatch to see the difference .

Altough I do work with a Dual P4 Xeon 2.0 GHZ now , I worked a long time with a P300 .
