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.

Not a problem to add, I've already implemented search hit count in git, it will be out in the next release. Would you like to see an explicit counter, or just increment the hit count for each shared file, or both? If explicit counter, where would you like me to put it?

I was curious to try MuWire-0.5.4 so downloaded, but something odd happened. I was not sure if it was an installer or app so opened from download folder. After discovering it was an app I tried to quit but was given a warning about continuing to run. I copied the app to Applic. folder and tried to trash the app from downloads folder but received warning it could not be trashed because it was still running. I checked activity monitor but could not see anything that I identified with MW.

Some minutes later I was finally able to see a Remove from Dock option which had not been there previously. (I should have shown the dock menu options portion which only had an option to add to Dock, not remove.)

These symptoms might have partly been due to not running from the formal Applic. folder in the first place.

Comment: Whilst the keep in tray (but running in background) has been in the Windows OS for many years, I've personally never heard of this for MacOS (with exception of a server app.)

After restarting MW I found it did quit properly after using the (new) exit command.

2. I noticed I had redownloaded the netshare 0.5.2 overnight. After the above restart it is presently attempting to redownload it yet again but with a connecting status and eta of unknown.

3. The mp3 influx has returned for this restart. It's tiring removing them all. It might be easier to totally remove all of those particular folders and re-add via dnd selected files.

I'm running MacOS and VLC and Skype have system tray icons, so I thought it was a more accepted practice. I can add a configuration option to not minimize to tray if that will make things better.

That shouldn't happen, looks like a bug; the only way it could happen is if when you shut it down it was in the middle of downloading the update. Then it would just resume that download after restart.

I have implemented a fix for the underlying problem, with the next version you will be able to remove individual files from a shared folder without them getting re-shared after restart. But for now yes, the only solution is to unshare the entire containing folder and then re-add files via dnd.

This might have been a one off struggling to be able to quit the program, including via the dock option. I guess I was a little shocked when this happened and quitting Mw did not appear to work, just a reiteration of the same popup window of running in tray.

From a personal note I'd prefer a config option not to go to tray/dock. Personally I simply Hide the app if I don't want the gui showing, standard practice. Command H

All running gui apps on OSX will have a listing in the dock/tray. For ease of access and opening people may choose to retain the app in the dock. During installation some apps will permanently put themselves in the dock which requires manual removal. I consider that an arrogant install attitude. Could you imagine a dock with 150+ apps lol. I've seen something similar and it's confusing and somewhat pointless.

How does this look? I thought it's more clear to present the user with the option upon closing. I will of course put it in the options too.

Keep in mind that if MW is closed to dock, there is no way to quit the program. The Quit command simply gets stuck in a loop. There is also no way to get MW gui to show. That makes it very different to the hide command.

The only way I was able to quit the program was using the force quit command using a utility.

This does need to be improved. Potentially needing macos specific commands. Unless you switch the quit and exit commands. (Presently the exit option is only available on the gui.)

Also the program's active name shows up as Launcher (not referring to the Dock.)

Actually what happens is MW takes a very long time to shutdown sometimes up to 2 minutes. I've made some changes in git to significantly speed that up, the next version should take no more than a few seconds.


Unfortunately after Command-Q has been pressed I cannot show any more windows, so I can't display the "MuWire is closing please wait" dialog.
