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 iTunes.

I'm new to LimeWire and iTunes, but I was wondering since I'm downloading music off of LimeWire it goes into a different folder other than my iTunes 'Library'. The folder that my LimeWire music is put into is called "Owner's LimeWire Tunes". I was wondering if it would be possible to move these music files into my Library so I can update my iPod with my songs downloaded from LimeWire? The OS I use is Windows XP Home.

To my knowledge the win version LW has not adopted the same process as MAC OSX where the iTunes has the ability to automatically import all mp3's that LW has dwnlded. Therefore you'd need to import them manually into iTunes. If you're not sure how to do that just ask. For iPod as soon as you connect it to your comp, your iPod should update with iTunes playists.

The songs will download from LimeWire into iTunes automatically, it's just that the songs from LimeWire are put into a playlist called "Owner's LimeWire Tunes", so whenever I try to put the songs into a folder so that I can Import them into my Library it won't allow it. So the songs are all stuck in the folder I specified above...If you know of another way, please let me know how to put the songs into my library.

Default iTunes help.

I have iTunes and I also have the latest version of LimeWire basic. I can download everything and they will all go into iTunes fine. It's just that the songs are put into a different location than my library. They are put into a location called "Owner's LimeWire Tunes". It has an option to "Disconnect Owner's LimeWire Tunes" just like the iPod does. My question is, how do I move those songs into my library? I've tried everything I know how and nothing seems to work. My OS is Windows XP Home.

PS When I copy a CD to my computer it will automatically go into my library but whenever I download off LimeWire the files go into the folder I specified above.

Any help is appreciated.

I haven't as yet tried out the new LW 4.2.3 on windows (though I had heard it had xtra iTunes support.) But on Mac OSX the tunes are imported into BOTH the main library 'Library' & a playlist called 'Limewire'. You can drag & drop a tune from one playlist to another. I'd presume it'd be the same on windows. (By the way I use windows on a program called Virtual PC so it's not exactly equivalent & besides it works as fast as a snail with constipation.)

Sorry I wasn't of more help to you. You obviously want somebody else to help you which is why you reposted the original post. Good luck!

Well I reposted because I could'nt find my other post...but thanks for the help anyways, it's appreciated.

I'll also add that whenever I close LW, the option in iTunes titled " Owner's LimeWire Tunes" also closes. I don't know why it closes along with LW.

Global Mutiny,

LimeWire is shown in iTunes because it is sharing itself as a playlist. It's not actually adding the files into iTunes -- iTunes just recognizes that there's a shared library (shared by LimeWire) and displays it. That's why you can disconnect, etc...

We haven't yet added a feature to import files into iTunes itself on Windows. That will be there at some point, though...

You can manually do this by highlighting the files or folder in the library in LimeWire and dragging them into iTunes. They'll be copied into iTunes itself.
