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 in limewire can you select drive path??

Just wondering if it is possible to have limewire on the c drive of PC and be able to download to an external hard drive?? Therefore if files are infected they will bypass your pc all together??

Thanks In advance

Don't give yourself a false sense of security. It doesn't matter which drive they are on or if they are internal or external. If a file has a virus in it and you open it, it will infect your computer. When you open a file with a virus in it, it infects the operating system which is the system that opened it not the drive it is on.

Well, how about if you wanted to weaponize a thumb drive, for example…

Another cool trick would be to deliberately infect your (immune) camera or MP3
player to cause any thief's computer to secretly tell you where it is.

Hobo and Grandpa....Thank you for your help, I wasnt sure if I could do that or not. Quick run down...PC got infected with something, more than likely I opened up some bad mail, backed up as much as possible, had to reinstall O.S, I have about 5 gigs of music, which takes a long time to do a security scan. Your right, even if its stored somewhere other than your main HD your system still has to open it. Sorry for my Brain Freeze on the infected file question. Would a external HD make for a faster system scan if all my music is on the External?? Even though I have a 160g main HD?

Thank You Again.

No it will not. It can actually be slower to scan an external hard drive due to the limitations of the connection USB/Firewire. Your CPU can not transfer information through external as fast as it can to internal sources. But in most cases this does not matter because in most cases your software can not transfer information to your CPU as fast as the CPU can operate.

Hopefully you can understand what I just said. It can be a little confusing.

You're right..It would take alot longer due to transferring info. via USB Cable. Sorry I'm being a little broad with my questions . Basicly I want to download my music to an external thinking I could scan my main PC without having to scan my music all the time . Any advise on best ways to go about this? also; will the downloads be slower than normal by saving them directly to the future external drive??

Thank You Again so much.

Yes your scans of you PC will be faster if your saved file is on the external hard drive if you choose not to Scan that drive. And no your DL should not be slower unless you have one hell of a fast connection.

Thanks for all the help my friend, its greatly appreciated Just trying to be as safe as I can before I reinstall LW. Gotta keep the pc clean this time. Correct me if I'm wrong but LW should be almost the only program in Zonealarm Firewall settings that would need server internet rights??
Thank you again Grandpa, and I'll talk to you later.
