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.

Kazaa is also P2P.

Kazaa and its spyware its the biggest bullshit which exist. The official number one is now the Donkey network. there is also a Mac version:

http://www.edonkey2000.com/downloads.php

But be patient, the donkey netwrok is mainly for bigger files like videos and games. So its needs a little longer to start with a download but after a while the donkey is running like a horse.

Many thanks for that. I've been reading about eDonkey but didn't think there was a Mac version.

I'll give it a spin and see if it's any better than Limewire...

Well, I've installed the Donkey software and am trying to download a 700Mb file over my 512Mbs broadband DSL connection.

Now I'm now expert by any means, and I'm sure that this is down to some kind of sharing of bandwidth (or something) but why am I only receiving data at 2-4 Mbs when my connection is 512? I appreciate that data won't get to my machine at the full 512 speed, but for it to be at just 1/100th of my broadband connection speed? That IS slow.

If I had a 1Mbs line I guess it wouldn't make anything quicker (in the P2P arena) would it? Like I say, I'm no expert so please feel free to educate rather than berate me on this one.

Thanks

I hearya, but while I'm prepared to be patient, I've been 'downloading' this file for over 24 hours and it's curently at 8.62%.

Patience does kinda have a limit.

I read somewhere that to download a film takes less time than it takes to watch it...

I don┤t know where you read this, but its really a good joke...

A film needs between 3 - 14 days. If you are really lucky, you can download it in one or two days but this is not normal.

look in the faq set up your donkey...

btw do you think you would be able to download a movie from Kazaa? Kazaaa is only good for music I didn┤t manage to download a whole movie, the main reason is because there are no.

But you can choose which program you like more.

You have still the possibility to buy the video if you are to impatient. There is no P2P program which can offer every time a video download within 24 hours or less.

Well in that case, like the man in his orthopaedic shoes, I stand corrected.

So why is hollywood so worried then? Are there really that many people who are prepared to wait up to two weeks for a film to downlaod?

Will this get quicker with faster broadband connections or is the speed down to the structure of P2P networks?

I'll stick with DVDs and the oddd trip to the cinema. For now anyway.

Of course there are patient people who wait. Many people don┤t download just one film they try to get several movies at the same time, I finish every one or two days a film or a game.

P2P is P2P, if you are lucky you can download faster but its not sure.

We shall see.

There is a file which is now downloading a lot quicker, but looking at the details on the sources that it's coming from, it could well be in French!

I'm all new to this, so it'll be interesting to see how it goes.

Thanks for your advice & guidence,
