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.

Integration? You mean what happens when you click the "Enable iTunes support" option in Limewire?
Well, if all goes well, then Limewire creates a playlist in iTunes and whenever there's a new download, then Limewire will automatically open iTunes and have it import the song. You'll end up with two copies of the song: one in the Shared folder and the other in your Music directory.
You don't have to do anything other than tick the box to enable the function then click Apply for this to happen.

Is it possible to share my 'iTunes Music' folder instead of the 'shared' folder, So I can share all my music I have imported in iTunes? Or are ther problems concerning empbetted folders inside my 'iTunes Music' folder? This would save a lot of disk space.

Well, it is possible but, if I'm right, then it'd be far too much of a hassle to do it. That's because LW doesn't seem to recognize sub-folders, or at least I don't think it does: I tried sorting stuff in my shared in sub-folders, but, even though Limewire recognized that there were, like, 500 files in the Shared directory, it didn't show any of them in the Library, and Refreshing it didn't help at all.
Now, to actually add all the folders, you have to click explore in the Library, or go to Limewire->Preferences (or Options, depending on the OS you have) and add them from there.
To understand why this would be a hassle, if you're like me and like to have an iTunes library that's all organized with Artist, album, song, etc, etc names, then go to the Music folder in the Home directory of the Finder and see how many folders there are. If you've got more than 500 songs and they're all sorted by artist/ album then you're in trouble...
Unless someone has a much faster way to add folders to share in LW, then it's just too bothersome IMO (I've already done it twice, before and after upgrading to Panther and frankly, I don't I'll ever do it again...)

Maybe I'm misundersatanding, but I share my iTunes folder without problems. I was also surprised to find people were uplding these files without problems. (I've noticed LW seems to have difficulty when you share 2 identical mp3 files - one of the folders will not register.) I also share several other folders around other parts of my HDD. I don't know if this means anything or is helpful at all. Hopefully it is.

Well, maybe it's just my Limewire.

When you tried having your iTunes folder shared, in the lw lib window, did you click open each of the folders & levels of folders (eg-album folders) to see if they could be seen in the lib win.? Most frequently I have people dwnlding from these folders. And there's lots of them arranged as you suggested via artist & album, etc. I suspect you didn't click open the (album) folders in the lib window. I have selected the main 'iTunes Music' folder as the 1st level folder.

Maybe you should go back to version 4.0.4 like mine! Hehehe

Thanks for the input you all on this. But is there a check box in LW preferences I'm overlooking? I'm sharing my iTune library at the moment but it does't show in the LW library.

This is not always the case & I'm not sure how I overcame it. Try reAdding your shared folders (take them off the list & reAdd.) Press apply each time & go back to your LW Library window & press refresh.

Also, depending on which iTunes folder is selected as the main share folder (for me it's called 'iTunes Music') (you better check it), if you click onto the folder's arrow in the LW Lib window, all its sub-folders (next level down) will show. For me that means a list of artists. Just click on the arrow next to any of them to see their albums. Next click on the album folder to see the songs listed in the window.
