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.

From slowest to fastest it's modem, cable/dsl, T1, T3 or higher. But you should set your speed to whatever speed you actually have

Here's some clues: 1. What speeds are T1/T3, etc. for LW, & also 2. More on LW connection speeds, & then 3. What is a T1?

To find your speed, close LW & Choose nearest location for a speed test & only have your browser open: http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/speedtest/
If the result is quoted in kbps (kilobits per second) then you'll need to divide it by 8 to give you KB/s (KiloBytes per second)!

me_again is flying high
Default It didnt soak in my 28K brain cell

Hello everyone, I am sorry, I read all this thread but but, but,,, I can never seem to find what I am looking for even though I triped over it looking. So if one of you don't mind,,

I have a Ethernet cable connection. speed running at 100.0 Mbps.
When I configured LimeWire, I set my connection to DSL/Cable since that was what I have.
If I dont ask I wont be sure I've set things to the better. So,,, Will someone tell me please, or suggest which connect would be better T1 T2 T3 ??? or leave it where its at? and just where to set the bandwidth slider for the uploads and the downloads please. I almost caught on to the post about LW being able to adjust for the connections speed on its own.. but I dont trust what I think I understood, now after thinking about it. I think I stayed one to many days at WoodStock 69, or was that 68..

Sorry for asking about this in this thread, but how does LW ultrapeer Leaf connection work? The status shows Outgoing all the time. If the Ultrapeers are connected to my shared folder. Is what I see uploading in my monitor window what the ultrapeers are uploading for someone? Or are the ultrapeers just holding up a billboard showing my shared files folder?
I remember reading that those with slower connect speeds are limited to what ever that speed may be.. So if that be the case then why have down loads uploading from 8 different hosts, if one can upload faster than they can download? I'm so confussed,, And one last thing for now. If you set the settings for freeloaders. If the setting is that you have to share one file to not be classified as a free loader, is that a setting for classifying myself? or a requirement for anyone wanting to down load from me, and them having to leave one? I dont want anyone to leave me a file unless I've asked for it.
The question I think reads funny... But what would a good setting be for files to share, and which side of allow feeloaders rarely, or always should be set on that control?

Ok, i'm gone ,, and thanks for the help.
