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.

See all the points here including below the images Upgrading to V 4.18 (click on link)

Have you checked your cc statements to see who you paid the money to? If it was not directed specifically to Lime Wire LLC, then unfortunately you paid your money to a probable scam site. In that case cancel transaction via your cc company & get your money back claiming it was a fraud business transaction.

Confused Limewire Pro

It was through free limewire that I paid for Limewire Pro. And I also received a confirmation page from limewire with the link to the download page. When I click on the link on the download page, nothing happens

Which version of Pro do you have?
A court injunction is preventing LW from distributing their software. Also most of their servers have been shut down. In effect they are in a way shutdown yes. But the company has not closed. They are working with the RIAA to keep afloat is last thing I read. That means LW will not be the same & will probably become as Bearshare, Shareaza & iMesh became The Story: Shareaza, iMesh, RIAA, and Recent Events

See *** LW still works fine with version 5.5.10, but do not attempt to use later version !!! If you still have an active Pro license, then the LW 5.5.10 will still work as Pro, otherwise it will operate as LW Basic. If you were using an earlier LW Pro version, then simply replace your Gnutella.net file. If LW 5 Will Not Connect

I found lots of free files on Bearshare, but like Limewire better.
Hopefully seeders make there way back.

I replied to your original post here email (click on link). Ouch! Sounds to me like you were scammed. Any place selling LW Pro is a fraud & scam site. I recommend you cancel the credit card transaction as soon as possible. Explain to your CC company it was a fraud.

Be aware, some scam sites will make repeated charges on your card. So explain this to VISA support when you speak to them to be sure they disallow further transactions from that scam group.

Please give us the web address of the scam site so we can add them to the list: Membership? - **WARNING ** BEWARE** - Download p2p Clients ONLY Thru Official Sites
