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 Limewire / Itunes intergration

I'm sure that this has been discussed but can't find a solution.

My LW folder in Itunes will not allow me to drag and drop files into play lists, surely this should be possible. I understand that this is because these files are not yet added to the itunes library but it's a real pain to add files individually (having to browse the entire shared folder) and when I add the entire folder my songs are often duplicated.

I can right click on a file in the itunes LW folder and the option to copy is given but later no option to paste in to the library.

Idealy all my LW downloads would automatically be in my itunes library.

Hope someone can advise.

Buy a mac & all your problems are solved! lol Of course mac osx has the ability to have iTunes import the songs directly from LW.

I have discovered that you can create playlists within LW & save them as m3u files. You can import these LW playlists to iTunes. The songs will have their own playlist & but also appear within the main library playlist. However, you can also import the songs themseves into iTunes main library by going to iTunes menu>Advanced>Consolidate & this will copy the actual files to iTunes own library (as compared to a reference.) I'm guessing the same could or should be able to be done with the Limewire playlist that appears in iTunes. Try it! I suggested trying something similar to this a few months back but never got a response as to whether it worked or not. At present I can't try it out.

The below example refers to consolidating a LW m3u playlist file imported into iTunes.

Thanks for this. Are you sure that you can selectively consolidate folders though? It says it will consolidate your entire library not a selected folder. And why are 2 of each song in the LW folder?

thanks for your help

OK sorry let me clarify that for you. I'm using a mac computer but I can use windows (win 2k) by using a program called virtual pc. It runs at something like 20 - 30 MHz at my estimation so you can imagine how slow it is.

The image I showed you is of the main library which started off with 2 copies of the same file plus the Chain playlist. So those other 2 identical files were already there by my laziness to wait to create other files, etc. due to its speed, etc.

But the principle of what I said works. You can import songs from LW via a playlist & then consolidate the library & the physical songs themselves are copied to the iTunes library folders. What I uggest is you try the same principle with the LW Playlist. If possible please give us some feedback I'd like to know if it works or not. My windows version LW is not actually connected to the net so I can't replicate it (unless I put some files into the LW dwnld folder by myself.)

Oh yes I did forget about your question about selective folders. No I don't think it can.

When you consolidate iTunes library it copies all audio files to iTunes library that are within playlists in iTunes but are not themselves within iTunes library folders on the Hard Disk Drive.
