Most problems are not new. The Search function is most useful. Also the red Stickies have answers to the most commonly asked questions. (over 90 percent).
If your problem is not resolved by a search of the forums, please take the next step and post in the appropriate forum. There are many members who will be glad to help.
If you are new to the world of file sharing please do not be shy! Everyone was ‘new’ when they first started.

When posting, please include details for:
Your Operating System ....... Your version of your Gnutella Client (* this is important for helping solve problems) ....... Your Internet connection (56K, Cable, DSL) ....... The exact error message, if one pops up
Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you. To aid helpers in solving download/upload problems, LimeWire and Frostwire users must specify whether they are downloading a torrent file or a file from the Gnutella network.
Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Angry I've never seen so many idiots in one place!

Has it EVER occured to most of you seeking help, that it MIGHT be helpful if you post a DESCRIPTIVE question? It wouldn't hurt to explain as much as possible in your first post to avoid all the unneccessary guessing as to what YOUR problem is.

Here is a perfect example: "Why are my downloads so slow?"

Ummm, did it ever cross your minds that it may help if you tell everyone what version of the software you're running, what operating system, your modem speed!!!, your ISP, etc, etc, etc...? Just by the very nature of how the Internet operates, a network engineering guru could have trouble answering that question if he was sitting at your computer!

Some of us come here looking for solutions, but are forced to sift through volumes of crap going back and forth between people who don't have a clue.

Miss Cleo wouldn't be able to get useful information out of you goofballs!

Thanks for listening, I feel better now.

Talking Not so bad

Although he/she was a little rude, he/she made a good point about some, not most or all, of the posts that have been put up with very vauge discriptions. The last three I read have been that way. And he/she did mention at the end that the post was just to blow off some steam. Kath, I know you're just trying to help keep us kids in line, but I don't think he was looking for a response. I feel just as strongly about the improper tone of many messages, I have a few posts that say basically the same thing you did flying around here someplace, but I think this person knew they were a little out of line already, and didn't need the reminder. I appologize for any insulting tone that has come accross in this post, I assure you, none was intended.

P.S. Thanks for smiling as always Kath, it makes us all just a little happier. (no sarcasm intended)

Actually I did understand how LW works aswell as general networking and Windows 98 / 2000 in general .

So I don't think I classify as one of those "idiots" .

In fact I've helped more people already then asked questions ...
And this is like my 15t post !

Red face Re: Re: My photo?

Eheh... Thank you (maybe after all it is better to show only the little one; it seems that it makes me look better ).

Let me know about a picture of you.

for real though. it's not hard at all for the newbies to read a little before posting. when i first start with something, i read as much as possible to learn up on things. then i ask well informed / descriptive questions when i need to.

there's so much on the net to read about gnutella at forums, faqs, etc. etc. it borders almost on laziness.
