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.

Lightbulb itunes protected, or ownership issues

itunes allows you to download music off the internet. When you do this, you are only allowed to use that downloaded song to create a set number of CD's. They end in the file format m4a. They are protected, and thus you can't use it! Im not sure if this is the case, but do a "apple I" to get the info. on the CD. If the "Kind" is MPEG-4" then its protected. Also while your there, check the Ownership & Permissions. It should say you can "Read & Write".
Hope this helps.

Hmm, if this is true about the protection on the .m4a files then you might wanna do the following, even though it can be a great hassle, especially if you have a large number of music files (like me...):
go to iTunes' Preferences and click Importing. Change the importing codec to .mp3 and hope that this one doesn't have some funky protect stuff on it too. Now (and here's the frustrating part), re-import every single song that is in .m4a format.

Aaaaah. So you didn't have iTunes to begin with... You said you had a Mac so I figured you also had iTunes.
Ok, iTunes doesn't have anything to do with Limewire other than the fact that LW's developers were kind enough to include a iTunes support function in LW.
As for the .m4a format, you can see it when you dld a song via LW under one of the columns that displays the extension of the file that you are about to dld or are already dlding (in the Search window). Generally, when you look for music in LW it will be in .mp3, with occasional .wma here and there as well as .ogg.
Now, fi you want to check what kind of format the files you already dlded are in, then simply find the file in the Finder and click it's name: you will be able to alter the name at that piont, but more importantly, you will be able to see the full name of the file, as well as it's extension (the very last letters after the .)
Since you dlded iTunes, if it works well (it's probably a cracked version) you can reencode the files from .m4a to .mp3 format by going to the preferences and changing the codec, as I said earlier. After that, if you wish to keep iTunes, then you can enable LW's iTunes support which will automatically import any songs you may dld later in one of iTunes' playlists, which will keep your files organized and close at hand.
iTunes is not necessary in order to use LW so it's a matter of personal choice.
