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.

Since the RIAA runs wild these days, you might want to think about going political:

http://www2.piratpartiet.se/the_pirate_party
http://ffii.org/index.en.html
http://defectivebydesign.org/en/node/400

And think about your consuming habits:

Firstly, i'm not worried about being proscecuted for something that I consider my freedom. For one, I dislike buying cd's, the price is ridiculous and if you only like one song then what's the point of paying x amount of money for that one song. Two, I dislike paying x amount of money to see a movie at the cinema to find out that it was hyped up, or overrated.

Secondly, the entertainment industry is always trying their best to win over illegal uploading and downloading (exchanging) of illegal material, but when one application goes down another takes it's place. So it's a losing battle for them.

First of all. I do download and share whatever I feel like, but...

I still buy music, rent movies, buy some programs and go to the cinema. I think that some of you have got this all wrong and are the main reason that the RIAA, MPAA and all other organisations are crashing down on P2P.

There is nothing wrong with buying a CD that you like most of the songs on. I know that the recordindustry get the most part if not all of the profits, but it will still help the artist get his/her next record deal.

If everybody had your view on things, do you really think the the movieindustry would continue spending millions of dollars on every movie. Or software companies would spend millions on developing new and (better ) sofware ? and games ?

Even though I am an active user of P2P and can pretty much get whatever I want I still spent about 6-700 $ on software and media the last year, and if you started doing the same thing there would be no need for those organisations

Also lets get into freeware. Most of the programs you download and use for free, you have the option to make a donation if you like the software. I saw a side article on one of those programs from the programmer which said, that he was seriosly thinking of getting a job instead of making freeware. In the 8 years that he had been making software for free distrubution and usage millions of people had downloaded his software. Especially this caught my attention. It had been downloaded over 700.000 times and he had got 370 $ in donations. No wonder he is thinking about getting a job, because the only thing keeping him afloat was that his wife worked a job that actually paid

Something to think about, isn't it ?

If I come across the article again I will post a link here so you can see for yourself how God damn cheap you really are

I'm not really worried. I rarely use LimeWire now and when I do use it, it's to find songs that are a ***** to find in music stores. As for sharing, I only share the files that I had a difficult time finding. I use to share a large amount of files but I've limited my shared files a great deal.

Also if things are expensive at music stores buy it in iTunes. The cds on there are cheap. And then go find a cheap cd burner and burn the songs. I don't mind the price at the music store. I like to buy real copies of cds for the booklet. Amazon's used stuff is usually cheap to.
