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. Donīt 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.

Default Stop this!!

LimeWire 2.2.4 in OS X:

- No chance to quit this programm the normal way. Always have to quit-force with this 3-finger-trick. = , because all my preferences get lost, each dam time.

- Unbelivable! Java starts freezing again, even though I have the latest Java for mac os x. =


I always try to be patient, but now it somehow becomes ridicoulus.
I mean, for how long does these programmers are working full-time on this project now. Sorry, I would never say that they are unable or untalented to code, because Limewire itself is a powerful and featureful filesharingapp.
BUT: maybe these people are untalented in understanding that SO MANY users wonīt get happy with it unless it leaves this superdamn Java-stage. Grrrrrrr

Comeon people - at least for us Mac-Users this is getting too much, donīt you think?

Still: I will be patient with Limewire, but certainlx not forever īcause other things will come.

Thumbs down crapola!

Yes, this program is crap. Why launch something that is utterly unusable? I resent having my time wasted with someone else's ego project. Just hope I can get rid of all the spyware smeared on my hard drive. 2 thumbs down for LimeWire. It's a lemon.

LimeWire is the only application on my mac that is really able to slow down my computer and the internet-connection dramatically.
We are in 2002, and this Programm does exist for a while now.

To the programmers:
Do you really want to say that your LimeWire is really working flawlessly with the macs you are testing it?

You are working fulltime on this - didnīt you ever had the the thought
"hmm, people donīt stop complaining about Java...shouldnīt we code it as a "standalone"-application?"
Yes, this would mean work, but hey - how long will you stick to this java-crap?

How many people must complain??

Lol - when think about paying money for this....pfffffftt.

I would never ever say that _my_ problems are the problems of all the other people, but at least on a mac Limewire is one of the most worse programms ever. (in the long run....and I use Limewire since more than a year now.)

I wonīt stop trying Limewire, because when it works it works really good.

so long....grrrrr

I can hear the complaints from all the sides too - and also wonder what those programmers do all the day??

6 people working fulltime on this app - since quite a long time now.
I cannot get this in my head - whereīs the improvment?

Buying Limewire Pro would mean the very same errors and troubles as with the free version.
So why should I buy a software that isnīt able to simply work since such a long time?
confusing....... very very confusing.

I want to launch an application, and then I expect it to run.
I donīt want to wait many seconds (or even minutes) to simply push ONE button!
I donīt want to wait for resizing windows displaying the content.
(my limewire-preferences doesnīt even show me the full content of the window--hahahahahaha )

And it isnīt nice not to have the ability to quit a Programm the normal way, by selecting "quit" in the menu.

No chance for me, not with LimeWireīs OS 9-version, nor with the X-version.

it simply doesnīt work - I always have to do a force-quit

U guys shouldn't complain. LW has done all they can for MAC users and I do agree that the new version is bad. But u shouldn't complain b/c w/out LW u would b in the dust. Windows has all the satellites programs they could ever need. We don't so instead of complaining downgrade (which is wot I did) and do wot u can. I give LW all the props for coming out w/this program, it surely is better than nothing!!!!!!!.

manny's_mad is flying high

I second Latin's opinion on down-grading. It works for me as well. I'm on 2.1 now. This does not cause the memory problem (although it still eats a lot); and 2.1 IMHO is more stable compared to the later ones.

Complaining with a positive spirit is good, 'cause it helps the developers figure out what's wrong with the baby. Insulting, on the other hand, is not good. 'Cause...well, tell me one good reason why it's good (assuming we're all civilized!).

you can laugh or cry, no one's stopping you.

and for heaven's sake, no one's asking you to get anything into your head, so give yourself a break.

Happy sharing.
