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.

Unhappy What's wrong!?

I am using mac os9.2 and recently installed limewire.
It worked when I launched the program for the first time, but once I quit the program, I cannot even start it. It just quits automatically.
Is this because I'm using broadband?
Please Help!

Default Hi

The nature of your connection to the internet is not relevant. Indeed, Limewire as a package should load even though your machine is disconnected from the net. So your problem is most likely with the installation itself. I suggest that you uninstall and trash all the "Limew" elements you can find. Then, with a clean slate, download the latest version and see whether that loads. If that does not work, I recall that there were incompatibilties between some of the later LW upgrades and OS9 because of the version of Java used in the early version of OS9. Post back if reinstallation does not work, and I will give you the address for downloading a version of Limewire which I know to work on OS9. To explain — it is better to use the most recent versions of LW if you can. Older versions are being phased out and soon will not interface with Gnutella. Hence, reliance on older versions of LW is, at best, a temporary fix.

Let's take you back to an earlier version. I have good memories of 2.8.6 when I was on OS9.2. You will find it at http://www3.limewire.com/download/2.8.6/

Again, this should be installed on a clean slate so trash everything with "limew" in its label before downloading.

Default Hmmm

The download should come to you in a compressed form as a Stuffit file. Stuffit is a standard component in the Mac bundle and you do report that you were able to unpack the first version of Limewire you downloaded which would confirm its presence. Are you certain that you have not downloaded a version of Limewire to your HD? If Finder locates it, you should be able to use Stuffit to uncompress it. If nothing has been downloaded, that would suggest either something seriously wrong with your download manager or with the save to disk routine and running a system repair through Utilities might be a good idea.

Default Ah!

There was a memory problem with Limewire in earlier Mac OSs. Needless to say, the problem was resolved when OSX appeared because the virtual memory automatically resets itself. However, since we cannot get you to a successful installation, this is a bit academic, no?
