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.

In Audions preferences under 'General' you can "disable iTunes™ "autolaunching". Also in Limewires 'iTunes - Importing' preferences you can turn off "Enable iTunes importing".
It's a shame Audion is dead, I liked it.

After you do the above in LW, you'll have to open all files manually in the Finder.

You can make Audion the overall default mp3 player. Select an mp3 file on the desktop, hold apple & i keys & select the Open with option. After this select Change All ...

Has Audion really gone bust? You can still buy it. It can play Ogg Vorbis which iTunes can't play. It can also encode using more options including Lame which iTunes can't unless you get a 3rd party plug-in. It's my backup player when iTunes can't open something. It's more reliable for those 'other' mp3 formats.

I don't think I bleached it very well. lol

Isn't funny how it shows some apps as alternative mp3 apps. Yet I have another 2 specific OSX mp3 apps that aren't even listed on the main list; ie: Cabrio, & mp3 Rage.

yep, they sent me this email months ago...

Dear Audion Owner,

Remember Audion? One of the first, and certainly the most stylish, Macintosh MP3 player/encoders, Audion was released in 1999 and really helped Panic become the little Macintosh company it is today. At some point you bought a copy of Audion, to which we're quite thankful.

Lately, though, you may have noticed that there haven't much activity with Audion. To be honest, there's been activity, but it's been going on behind-the-scenes -- and a great deal of that has been decision-making.

The result? We've made the decision to "retire" Audion after nearly 5 years of wonderful service.

The good news:

As part of the retirement, Audion will remain available for download, and we're even making it totally free of charge for all users around the globe!

The not-so-good news:

Audion will no longer be actively developed, and support will be minimal, although we'll work hard to support paid users such as yourself.

First, understand that this is the first time we've taken an application out of active development, and we're certainly nervous about it -- but we're trying our best to handle it in the best way we can, and we want to make sure everyone stays as happy as possible.

DETAILS
=======

Q. Why did you make this decision?
A. The answer starts with an "i", but there's a lot more to it.

The short answer, obviously, is that it's become increasingly difficult for Audion to compete with iTunes -- a free program, that comes with every copy of Mac OS X, and works quite well for 95% of Mac digital audio users -- and our sales clearly reflect this. While we could pour time and money into making Audion something "more", we're certain the returns would not match the effort.

But, that's the oversimplified answer. There's much more to the story. In order to explain it fully -- and if you want to understand the true thought behind this decision -- I've taken the time to write the (ridiculously lengthy) "True Story Of Audion".

http://www.panic.com/extras/audionstory/

The last few paragraphs explain fully the rationale behind this decision. But the full story contains all sorts of interesting things, such as how Audion almost became iTunes (!), how we almost became an AOL / Time Warner company, and our how Apple boardroom meeting with Steve Jobs went.

If you're an Audion fan, or a Panic historian, I promise it's worth your time to read the whole thing.

Q. But I bought Audion! What now?
A. Take 20% off any of our other software.

First, the Audion you purchased will continue to work now and in the foreseeable future, and do everything it did when you bought it! But, realistically we know there's more to it than that -- nobody wants to buy software with a limited future life. Sadly, there's not much we can do about that.

But, when talking about it, we really wanted to do _something_ to make up for the retirement -- even if just a little bit. So, as a small, optional token of our gratitude -- your purchase of Audion really helped make Panic become Panic! -- we'd like to offer you 20% OFF ANY of our other (actively developed!) software, on us.

https://www.panic.com/special/audion-offer.html
Promo Code: AUDIONUSER
20% off anything we make.

This special will last until 11/15/04. We hope you enjoy our other software as much as you enjoyed Audion.

Q. But I, like, *JUST* bought Audion a little while ago!
A. No problem. We'll gladly refund your purchase.

If you bought Audion sometime after September 15th, 2004 -- we will fully refund your purchase price.

Simply send an email to: audion@panic.com , with the subject "Recent Refund". Include your serial number or order number. We'll do the rest.

Q. Well, that's that. What's next for Panic, then?
A: Lots!

Panic is not going out of business -- we're just retiring a program due to circumstances largely beyond our control. We hope we don't ever have to do it again! We plan to continue to keep making the best Macintosh software we possibly can -- if there's a program we want, we'll build it. Transmit, Unison, CandyBar, Stattoo, Desktastic and Pixadex are all great products we're very proud of and working hard on. Please keep an eye on us in the future!

Thanks for reading, and your understanding.

Feel free to send us an e-mail with your thoughts, comments, and Audion memories!

Sincerely,
Cabel
Co-Founder
Panic

Wow that's a sad story. I also received a letter (I can't remember the name of the company) to say the softw arm of SoundJam mp3 had decided to work for Apple for their iTunes project. SoundJam was a better app than the earlier iTunes. That was 2-3 years ago now.

Btw. LW's importing feature is based on AppleScript and the script is in the LimeWire.app package (iTunes.scpt). It can be modified to use Audion (or whatever you prefer) instead of iTunes.

If I may ask more-so out of curiousity, how do you do that? I have 'some' applescript knowledge. Yes, I recognise the company name now. I just couldn't remember it off hand. I made a copy of the letter somewhere but... so many backup disks ... lol
