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.

Dear Pantherseyes

Everything the scam site told you were lies, that means everything you thought you were downloading legally you were downloading illegally.

You would be better off just trying to get your money back rather than trying than rescue anything beneficial from the site you purchased your “free” copy of LW from. After all, these scam sites (and there are well over a hundred of them) were specifically designed to part the gullible from their money.

Next time, be more careful (less eager).



UK Bob

Angry What the Hell?!

Hi Everyone,

Quote:
Life Is Just!
I Don't Believe this! 8 pages of forum thread with people reporting being scammed of amounts between $10-80!
Most rich people probably think,
Quote:
Oh What the hell, I little donation to a convicing evil b******. I'm just assisting in the scamming of thousands of people. Oh RIGHT, thats what I did to get rich! Lucky ME!
I'm Talking to you Mr.Developer. (Move millions of people in 400m2 houses and expect them to raise a family)

We all go through school (hopefully) or go to a fair, we get scammed in real life.

Quote:
Gimme 50 bucks and I'll get U first place in line.
Quote:
Oh WOW!, Thanks Mate! (Hands over 50 Bucks)
Man walks off. Payee stares at own stupidity
There is definetely someone/group that is running a major operation.
All of these scam websites seem to say the same thing, Have the same logos, banners , offers.

Another case example. Man goes to party, everybodys talking about the latest album, Ta Dah, Panic at the Disco, Van Morrison Greatest Hits. Eventually someone brings up LimeWire. Man asks where to get it. He just says get it from Google. Goes home, Drunk and Tired. Man decides to quickly download it. Goes into their FIREFOX BROWSER (GO) and enters LimeWire.

Guess Wat is the First Search Result. In Highlighted blue and labeled as Major Sponsored Ad. Iiiiiiiits.... Download Limewire 2007TM LimeWire.Download-It-Free.com.

It's probably the best way to get a Tired 40-year-old man to download a program.

Especially if he has a credit card

Another way the scammers get their way is to pay google lotsa moneys.

A normal person is bombarded by 6 Highlighted Sponsored Ads.
Guess What, they are all owned by the same person. They may have a different front page, different url, but the setup page is the same text, same offers. The only different thing is the banner, with the name of the website.

Not many people have a care to detail on the internet.

Now, heres a sick case.

http://free-limewire.hospitalityzone.ca/..

Not many people look at that. Probably 99% of this forum looks at that and says OMG AD!!!! SUE THE B******S

But the other 70% of the world, who has just picked up a $40 computer from the local petrol store, walks into the internet, without a leash.

Everyone I do any computer work for, any amatuer, i run through the basics of the internet.


To Conclude,

devil.of.firewalls

P.S: A Question, Mentioned before by Lord of the Rings (I THINK) that there is no difference between LimeWire and LimeWire Pro. There'd have to be, but someone, some source-coder, please tell us if there is!

I would not have said no difference between them. But the differences could possibly be described as minimal. Many people might not see the difference because they 'look' identical. But internally the engine in Pro is fine-tuned more. It connects to 5 peers compared to Basic's 3, which really benefits for searching rarer files, not the common files. Pro has the ability to download from a couple more sources per download than Basic but only if you have a high bandwidth connection & are well set up & find enough free sources.

But some people suggest being a pro user is more of a donation to the continued development of LW.

If you have doubts, then simply use the free LW Basic. Particularly if you're only after commonly found files.

I believe you can also pay by money order instead. But it costs a little more due to processing costs.
