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.

Respectfully, I don't understand why you are trashing on this when it's only a day old. I spent the time to modify, test and re-compile Gnucleus to do this. I took the time to set up a web site with docs to give it distribution. I posted a patch to Swabby so he can mod Gnucleus.
I am busy figuring out a new way to do a host cache on my web site and will have to spend the time making Gnucleus connect to it.
I don't see how the "GnutellaDev Community" will stop the commercialization of Gnutella. We have to move off of it because the commercial interests won't.
Don't you consider me as a part of that Community? Is there a chance I can program in C++ ? Have a little respect please.
This is your chance to get rid of the greed on Gnutella, don't blow it.
If the "GnutellaDev Community" adds the ability in their clients to do this, the OpenSource P2P Net will give them a place to go and it has a rule to keep greed off.
Why not support this and the new GnutellaDev IRC channel at the same time? Where's your node?
Until the developers change and release new versions, this modified one will do.
Did you read the previous posts about this? It explains why this is needed in more detail.
I am happy the developers are off of the_gdf, now they need to move off of commercialized Gnutella.
Gnutella can be a protocol name, not a network. I don't see a need to throw out a perfectly good protocol at this point, and the existing code that works so well.
This is your chance to really do something about the greed that has slipped in.
It's easier than setting up and running a IRC client! And you can run both! Plus right now the bandwidth is nil so jump on board!

Do you really believe through recompiling a client and setting this thread you can solve all of our problems?

and: do you think this IRC channel is the only thing we have at the moment?

No, there's already much more.
There's a new community waking up.
People like Moak, Morgwen, godxblue(peeranha), KathW, raphael, oovermars (gnucleus), tremix, etc, etc, etc are there and it will be much more in the future!

Then, there's a mailing list.

Also, godx started (and continued!) with an improved protocol.
And Moak's 0.7 proposal is in discussion

if you'd be on this IRC channel, you would know that, and you'd not be alone trying something

I don't want to further influence you. Do what you believe. If you think it's best splitting the network into gnutella and opensource, do that, in my opinion, the new GnutellaDev Community (name is 90% sure) will be more efficient than the old Vinnie-ruled GDF where the "improvements" are like monarchy (eat or die)...

i think you should at least have a try

Exclamation Please use something more helpful than OPENSOURCE CONNECT

I think it's a great idea, but your headers should give some sort of helpful ID.

This is just general good network behaviou.

Instead of OPENSOURCE CONNECT why not .. well just about anything



whatever, just make it informative.

Talking This should take off

This should take off, because there are SO MANY gnutella users, and the gnutella network has the limited horizon, which means even if I am on the 'real' gnutella network, I can actually only search a small subset of all users.

So to get comparable performance on this network (ignoring performance hitches caused by anticompetitive commercial clients!) we only need to <I>convert</I> a small subset of the 'real' gnutella users to opensource p2p.

It looks like the changes should be real easy to implement - I'm not a C programmer, but I think I can hack gtk-gnutella tonight when I get home!

If I succeed, I'll post some source somewhere.

Use me as a static host cache!!
This is a static IP and should be good for a long time!
I put it on an old computer so I never will turn it off except if it crashes.
About 1500 files on there too.

Sounds like the only thing that this modification blocked was the ability for bs users to download from you.

Congratulations, you are now a proud freeloader off, not the people who made bs, but users just like you.

Sorry, one step at a time, the client isn't fully blocking yet. Took long enough to set all this up to get it started. It's not a big problem right now. Just roll with it and keep posting those IPs, it gets better from here!

Thanks for participating in the new OpenSource P2P Net!

Note: If you lose all connections, type a IP from the forum into the "Connections Advanced" box and click "Add". Once you type the IP in it will stay in the little box and you can just click "Add" again if you lose it again. Stick with it!
