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.

Default Have You Tryed WinMX? Whats Better Here?

Hi all. I have been useing WinMx for some time now and I have never had a problem as of yet! I came here just to look around to see if there were any other places like WinMx on the net and found this one. From what I have been reading here, I see some unhappy campers having problems with the software! I see they have freeware for it, so why buy the Pro? WinMX only has one software and it's free and very simple to use. And no it dosn't have any spyware in it, do they have any here? Are firewalls a problem here? I use Windows XP's firewall and one by OnTrack at the same time. I keep over 3,000 Mp3 share files up most of the time, is that a problem here? At this point in time I havn't loaded any software for this site. If any of you have used WinMX, can you tell me whats so great about this place over WinMX? (No I don't work for WinMX or have anything to do with it!) I guess what I am asking is this: Whats better on the Gnutella vs WinMX? There both world wide. Sorry if this seems like I am being some kind of a jurk about this, Iam not. I am just looking around and doing some asking before I go down loading and installing more software. Thank's, Paw, Bakersfield Ca.

Here's what's better about LimeWire:
  • GUI: skin support, tabbed user interface.
  • "Launch"ing a media file that is being downloaded causes a copy of the partial file to be made first.
  • Offered on more OSes, updated more frequently.

Usually only people with problems come to the boards and post, the most without problems never come here.

About the PRO only Limewire and Bearshare have a PRO version (these two include spyware/crapware in their "free" version)... others and there are a lot of them offer their software for free, the most without spyware. Test clients like Gnucleus or Phex, if you want to know something about the other clients you can ask here. ALl clients connect to the same network, WinMX has only one client Gnutella has a lot of them becaus ethey use a free protocol.

Yes you can use the clients with your firewall, if your settings are correct.

Regarding the spyware thing, the free version adds a "LimeShop" tab which is a web browser, much like WinAmp's minibrowser, so it's not at all bad. I don't think the free version of LimeWire sends personal data to their servers. I remember downloading FreeWire claiming "no spyware", but it had spyware built in anyway! So don't download FreeWire instead

To be complete with the comparison, here's what's better about WinMX, since this is a WinMX vs LimeWire thread:
  • more complex and customizable text highlighting feature.
  • upload and download in one screen.
  • search results take up larger screen real estate without having to adjust a horizontal resize bar.
  • has auto find sources feature.
  • has chat rooms.
  • users have screennames, not just IP addresses.
  • users actually use the chat feature.
  • swarmed downloading doesn't freeze up system.
  • less of a CPU hog.
  • smaller install file (752KiB).
  • works like a windows app (got context menu for every textfield, etc.)
  • always displays a song's length in minutes:seconds format instead of just seconds format.
  • when closing a winmx window, it prompts me with options (exit winmx, send to tray...)
  • "wait for transfers to finish, then exit" option doesn't allow new transfers to start.

Its a WinMX vs Gnutella thread, this side is not only a Limewire side we support all Gnutella clients.

Look what paw wrote. No word about Limewire or did I miss anything?

Not to mention the topic: "What is better HERE?"... this side is called gnutellaforums.com and not limewire.com, hope you can see a difference here.

I think it is partly about philosophy. Gnutella isn't only a file-sharing system, but a network, which might be used for far more purposes, than just getting mp3s (and some projects already begin with that).

It always changes, evolves, and at the moment the traffic for network communication went down to an average of 500B/s, that's less than 0,5kB/s for leaves and about 1,5 to 2 kB/s for Ultrapeers, while many different clients interoperate.
