Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Hey Roo, Limewire Turbo is a very old program. I suggest you download a the latest version of Limewire or you could try to ad free alternative Frostwire.

Any file sharing program that is over 6 months old could not be preforming at its highest quality.

The programs themselves aren't illegal but how you use them may be a different story.

Depending on your country's laws, downloading/sharing of copyrighted material might be illegal.
For example, here's LW's copyright information: Copyright Information - Lime Wire
Use Google to search for your country's copyright laws, or use the forum search to look for legal, legality or something similar - chances are you'll find threads with more info.

Files shared on the Gnutella network can't be controlled by the client that you're using - anyone is free to share anything, so infected files can be shared.
I don't know about 'Limewire Turbo'. But LW (official version) gives you the option to check files with Bitzi before download: How to use Bitzi Web Lookup .. & How to use Magnet Links & Direct Connect/Browse/Chat

The latest versions of LW have measures in place to delete files that are known nasties, before they're saved to your HDD.
But it's still ultimately up to the user to scan downloaded files with their AV app/s before opening

I downloaded a camera copy of a movie, in which all of the humans spoke english, but the translations for what the aliens said was in russian, with english super-imposed. Soon after I downloaded it, I received my first notice from Comcast that I had downloaded copyrighted material, and they named the movie! I figure it must be one of the titles they choose to watch for unauthorized downloading. It was a lousy movie, about aliens living in a region designated by a number (8 plus 1).

Anyway, I had thought camera jobs were a bit safer; it appears I was mistaken. I used Vuze to dl it.


File Girl71 - I wish you'd stop that; it slows my reading.
On second thought, never mind. I'm always glad to see your posts.

If I get caught reading File_Girl71's post at work, or by my wife at home, I'm in big trouble.

I already got in trouble when I was going through some images that I had saved...and that was one of them...my wife was right behind me laughing at some of them, but then that one came up

why did I save it?...because I felt I might find a use for it one day...since File_Girl71 likes it seems I was right

AFAIK they are the most dangerous ones to seek or second most dangerous ... that authorities keep an eye out for. Although partial file sharing is great for the network, I would not recommend it for such dangerous files. Unfortunately as a torrent, you really don't have a lot of choice. (Vuse does have some security settings ... however ... might not be that helpful if those watching are also downloading the file.)
