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.

Dread,
if your files are within the iTunes library, just plug your iPod to synchronize it with iTunes library.

LW downloaded MP3, when they are in iTunes, are like other MP3s.

So if you own a Pod and use Itunes, you know the step to synchronize.

Or I cannot understand your question
Phil

The Ipod is able to read Apple Lossless (.ac3) and MP3: so no need to convert the LW dl MP3s

Drag ???? Just plug the IPod's FW cable in one FW port, ITunes opens and syncs all the music of Itunes to your Ipod.. 'sync' means that your Itunes Library and your iPod's one are the same: add a file to Itunes, it will add to Ipod the following sync ..suppress a file in your Itunes, it xill be suppressed out of the iPod at the next sync.

Agreed ... this happens when I copy a CD or buy from iTunes but it is like Limewire has its own Library and the two do not sync no matter what I do.

In LW's Preferences/Itunes/Import, i the "Allow support for iTunes" (or something like..sorry LW in French) is checked ?
In Itunes you have a songs list (left panel) called "LimeWire" which receives all the songs dl from LW and sync with Itunes. Do you see this list ? is it full of songs ?

The LW playlist which appears in iTunes is simply a playlist. If you want the songs to be automatically imported into iTunes then go to LW's preferences>iTunes>Importing & tick option to enable importing & press apply. The songs must be added to iTunes Music Library before you can add them to your iPod.

Keep in mind iTunes does not recognise mp3 pro, mp4 audio (only m4a), or Ogg Vorbis. You can get a 3rd party plug-in to allow iTunes to import & play Ogg Vorbis but I'm not sure if this plug-in can be transfered to iPod. Keep in mind that songs that don't have appropriate mp3 id3 tags 'might' not get imported. I spend considerable time comparing the iTunes & songs I've downlded to check they've been added by arranging iTunes by date added for that moment. I also use mp3 Rage to add tags that are missing. And I'll use Audion to see if the songs are playable. You can get Audion for free now. I left a link to it in the Sticky at the top of this section re: iTunes. HERE (click on link)

If LW is too busy, sometimes it does not allow iTunes to add the songs. So you need to add them manually (drag & drop for example.)

sorry... this all seems way over my head... thanks just the same.

i need a step by step instruction ( the more detail the better) as to how to get my Limewire list into my library so I can load them into my iPod

still haven't figured out why LW is so easily transferred to iTunes but not to my iPod
