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.

Question (new to gnutella) a minor problem with downloading speed

Dear gnutella network forumers,

How is everyone doing? I am R. G. H. Please to meet whoever I might get the chance to talk to in this thread.

I am a fairly new user to Gnutella. I have had the client for about a month now. I've been downloading lots of music and video clip files from it. However, I've noticed that there's been a gradual slowing down of the download speed as I've used it more and more. Is this normal with the client or am I doing something wrong? For reference, I have a tendency to leave my computer on (with a screen saver and monitor-sleep feature) for hours of a day or sometimes even for days. Does this affect Gnutella's performance?

Please let me know how I can fix this problem and how I can improve my speed. The sticky in this forum, sadly, seems to be catering to Limewire.

Thank you so much for any and all help that I may receive. Jolly good day. *hugs*

What client are you referring to?

Plz note that if you don't upload enough data, your downloads may slow down.

Hi, OldDeath. Thanks for your reply.

I have Gnutella Turbo. My downloads are extremely slow (ranging from a few bytes to the rare ocasion of a few hundred kegabytes); megabytes has never been the speed of the download, but I want this to be. Furthermore, I leave my computer and it's screensaver on days in a row, and more often then not, I still receive such a slow speed. Downloading 80 or 90 files of various sizes at a time, a completion of download only happens very occasionally. What must I do to increase the speed to the megabyte range?

Hello, Sweeter Bulstein. Pleasure to make your acquaintance as well.

Lol, gnutella turbo is only a bad fake version of Shareaza (AFAIK). You might want to download the real Shareaza, as it is most probable more up to date than gnutella turbo. (Which means it will work much better.) See: Shareaza - Bringing P2P Together

After this you might find my install and settings guide more usefull (which you might want to download before uninstalling gnutella turbo via this Magnet link: Shareaza install guide by OldDeath)

I'm back yet with another problem. haha

Thank you very much for your help, OldDeath. A quick use of your article was rather helpful in setting up Sharazea.

However, right now, I have a different problem, and I don't think it was covered by your article: I can't get some of my files to finish downloading when it's at close proximity to 100%. These files stop at 99% and remaining there for a while, despite having so many "sources" remaining. I currently have 8 files that are about done downloading but have remained at 98-99.95% for 2 1/2 weeks now. This also happened quite a bit back in the weeks of my Turbo use, and frankly, it's rather frustrating.

What should I do to make it possible for these almost complete files to finish downloading? Thanks again.

Yours in Gnutella rookies,
RGHRGH

There are files that cannot be downloaded 100%, for example if the initial source vanished before 100% of the file data has been uploaded to the network.

Also, you might have been downloading fake downloads (there are companies with multimillions of dollars that are only there to disrupt and spam in P2P networks or annoy the users in any other kind of way)

BTW, some general things you should always respect when downloading with Shareaza:
a) Make sure you have at least the G2 and eD2k networks enabled.
b) Make sure whatever file you're downloading has more than 3 or 4 sources; one of them at least on G2
c) Make sure the file you're selecting for download does display meta data (this requires 1 G2 source at least) in the search window and has a possibly correct file size (so a video file with some few KBs of size is most probably a fake, for example)

If you respect those two things, you get much better downloads in average

Does ShareAza not display meta data for G1 alone?
