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.

how do we use the content filter?
The Content Control Panel is intended to help you build your trust/distrust list. You input keywords or a regular expression in the text field and click "Add Rule". Then whenever a search comes to your node that matches that rule it is recorded, together with who searched it. Based on that you can choose to trust or distrust (aka block) that person. If you want to see every query that hits your node, enter the following as a regular expression ".*" (without the quotes).


Regarding the .DS_Store files I agree those should be excluded. I will look into adding some sort of filtering mechanism for such files.

Thanks. Funnily I didn't notice the text box until you mentioned it. It's located at the bottom left corner sort of out of the way.

Added exclusion of hidden files by default, together with "Browse Host" ability and few other features in 0.5.1.

Default Uploads

Finally witnessed an upload.
Would it be possible to add upload speeds per file and overall?

The upload process reminds me of how Phex and BearShare display uploads, listing in regards to pieces; once a piece is uploaded the upload vanishes for between a fraction of a second to a second and starts a fresh piece. Watching uploads in Phex confused me for several years (mainly because more than one listing of same upload might be visible simultaneously but not the only reason.)

MuWire - an anonymous P2P app-muwireupld-2019-10-26.gif
The sample image is over a period of a couple of minutes.

But I have no idea whether I'm uploading at 5 KB/s or 500 KB/s.

The bandwidth setting is not super clear. It is not clear whether inbound and outband bandwidth is to do with overheads or uploads and downloads or a combination. Either way it seems a little odd that a restart is required after changing the bandwidth settings (unless it is inclusive of overheads.)

An ability to change upload (and download) bandwidth on the fly with immediate effect would be beneficial if this is possible. Also upload slot control. What happens if 400 people suddenly wanted to download from me?

I would also like to eventually see the ability (option) to retain upload listings rather than the default of removing their listing once completed.

Also the Library does not list what files might have been uploaded or search hits in either Tree or Table mode.

I'm a little confused about finding two Muwire (same version) downloads in the Download window. Is this some kind of network distribution for updates? But why two?

The bandwidth setting is the total bandwidth that the application is allowed to consume, including any I2P overhead. Because I2P encrypts and adds padding sometimes, the effective speed of a file transfer will be lower than what is in the setting.


I will look into making it possible to change the bandwidth setting without a restart.

I will look into adding that too.

That is very easy to do, but I'm concerned that the uploads table will fill up very quickly. Pieces are pretty small and you would have a separate row for each piece of a file you've uploaded.

I'll look into adding that too, it will be in the Table mode.

Yes, those are the in-network updates, but there shouldn't have been two of the same file. It's probably a bug.

Default Possible Library bug

I decided to shutdown overnight. Upon re-opening I discovered mp3's had found their way into my library shares. I am guessing this might have been due to some changeover process during the update?

On one hand I had added some folders and removed the mp3's and AIFFs. Later version I drag & dropped specific files from folders. For MW to add the entire folder's contents suggests a possible problem? I needed to go through and remove the mp3's from almost every folder. The more recently added files (& their folders) were unaffected. It's my estimation the problem was with the original files I added to shares.

Here's the ugly part. I discovered folders I had never added to shares under the same parent directory. For example a folder called Unknown.

Both downloads were identical size, only difference was different number of hosts downloaded from.

One important thing I should probably document somewhere is that if you drag an entire folder into MW it will share all files and sub-folders. You *cannot* then un-share individual files for as long as the parent folder has been dragged; those files will get re-shared on restart. That probably explains what has happened to you.


If you have a folder and want to share only certain files from it, the way to do it is to drag only those files, not the folder. Alternatively I can add some filtering rules based on file type.

I'm thinking about how to solve this problem, i.e. remember which files in a shared folder have been explicitly unshared, but it will take some time.

I forgot to ask, petty question but does MW show whether someone has browsed your shares?

At least since drag & drop I have been dragging a group of files not the folder (there might have been 2+ exceptions.)
I have certainly not drag & dropped the parent directory. That would be too much work to clean up.
I suspect the problem might have been with the files I added prior to 0.4.16 where I needed to manually remove undesired files from shares. Though my memory is a little vague about the point in time I added the files to share.

Interesting point you made about the adding a parent folder via dnd. That's not ideal when the unshared are not necessarily immediately unshared.
