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.

Potentially like an archipelago of isolated groups with no boats to reach each other. Other islands might potentially have what someone is looking for.

That danger exists no matter how many hops are used, it's just different probability. But yes, it's possible, although I'm hoping the high fan-out factor will make sure the isolated islands are "big enough"

Btw I just released 0.5.8. Important new features are:


https://github.com/zlatinb/muwire/wi...e-Certificates
https://github.com/zlatinb/muwire/wiki/Search-Phrases


also I removed the forced update check on startup, although that will take effect only after the second restart.

I only downloaded a single macupdate with 0.5.8. That's an improvement. Though a restart reiterated the download after a few minutes of sitting on connecting. I cancelled this one. Another restart and it appears the reiteration has stopped.

The program appeared to shutdown very fast compared to usual. Another shutdown was also very fast.

I noticed once with 0.5.6 or 0.5.7 and again with restart of 0.5.8 there was no osx firewall popup. I'm always a little nervous when it's inconsistent and whether the exception is still working. A second restart and same thing. Not sure of the relevance.

Things like right-clicking with options such as view file information, find in library, find on disk, etc. This is particularly relevent if a shared file is simply "song.flac" and your library has multiple files of same song but different versions (such as live/studio/rehearsal, jam, etc.)
Such interactivity would be handy if added to the Library as a whole. Similar to LW in a way.

Just discovered after I changed id3 tags of some files they were removed from shares upon next startup. So I see what you mean about MW is a little fussy toward hash changes.

The maximum length of a comment is 32kb. If a sidecar file is longer than that, it will be ignored.
What does that mean in layman terms (re: 32kb)?

Implemented "show in library" option and a popup menu in the uploads table in git. Will be available with 0.5.9 (probably tomorrow)

You can issue certificates for files you're adding to the shared pool. Then when someone browses you or you return a search result, they can choose to import those certificates. It's true that your own certificates are of little use to yourself, but they help other verify the origin of the file. This way you can establish reputation.


32kb is a couple of pages of text I think.

I just released 0.5.10. Features a new search result display option - you can group by file instead of by sender. Also a right-click option on shared files that shows exactly who has searched for your files and who has downloaded them. Hope you like that!

Search result display shows helpful information.

I am finding the search results are somewhat more inclusive now or perhaps it's just the search terms. Keeping the searches simple appears to bring in more search results.

I'm starting to wonder if there is a problem at my end because I appear to have skipped 0.5.9; I am yet to see an update message.

After the update I noticed search hits and upload counts reset. Thus instead of overall I guess it's now a per session which is more appropriate.

I noticed Advanced Sharing - Watched Directories with 0.5.8, something I had not noticed previously. I apparently have ten directories watched for file changes.

Negative Tree (Files which are explicitly not shared): I notice there's directories listed that I'm also supposedly sharing. At least two of them only have one kind of file so there was no reason not to share anything from those folders and makes me wonder why they should be listed in the negative tree.

If certificates have been produced and you wish to adjust the name of the file, how difficult is it to make changes without polluting (creating a mismatch with) the certificate or removing and replacing the certificate? AFAIK changing the file name (not id tag name) of a file should not change the hash of a file, but the certificate is a different kettle of fish.

Unless you changed the default update check interval from every 24 hours you would have missed 0.5.9 because it lasted less than that lol.

I had to change the format of the search hits to show who has performed the search, that's why they reset. They are still persisted across sessions. The upload counters should not have reset though.

The negative tree lists files which are not shared but are inside a watched directory. If you see a directory there it just means the directory is shared, only if you see a file inside such a directory it means that specific file has been explicitly unshared. The negative tree display is more for debugging purposes as you can't really do anything with the tree, it's read-only.

It's impossible; the point of certificates is that they are a snapshot of the file at a specific time. If you want, you can delete the certificate file from the ~/Library/Application Support/MuWire/filecert directory but as the warning says someone may have already gotten it from you. There is no problem issuing a second certificate though, just click "Certify" again.

No wonder. Mine's set to 48 hrs but I don't recall manually changing it.

Will the certificate upload show in the upload window? If yes I'm safe on this occasion.

The certificates folder is a little confusing when you have many. Since I certified all simultaneously there was no time/date indicator either to give a hint. I was not enthusiastic about opening up over 1k of certificates to find several dozen. So I started them from scratch. Unless a file has been changed I presume the certificate would be identical to the original in any case (with exception of date and time listed within.)
