Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

And of course, to expand on the individually shared files, you can right-click on any file in the Library window & choose either share or stop sharing. Same applies for folders if you wish to stop sharing a folder.

Point taken, I was unaware that this "sharing facility" was available in the latest version of LW.

Still, I am surprised that this has been incorporated because, and this is my first thoughts on it, it seems to add an extra layer of confusion and perhaps an element of danger, i.e. less secure. However, to those that want this facility it will add extra flexibility that can be used, for example, to sort files as the user's requires.



UK Bob.

PS. I should now update my LW Pro.

Thankyou everyone on input,
So my other points,ie do files shared in unshared folders, show up on 'browse'
and do they show if 'uploaded' havn't been answered yet, and yes security was a factor in asking, as was genuine confusion.and as to extra flexibility, this is hardly 'Crystal clear' to anyone ,let alone the new user.and why cant you as LOTR suggests decide to 'Not share' in the library, they dont SHOW in the library???If I understand this,once you have ticked the box,all downloads are shared,whichever folder they are in? as they dont 'Show' a lot of people will not realise what they are sharing?Hence my other unanswered questions.

I split up your post and answered, but I think you are seriously overthinking things.

Brilliant, thankyou sleepless,once ive got hold of the wrong end of the stick, i can continue not understanding for AGES !! so if i havnt ticked the box,files in my individually shared arnt shared,correct?
Im sure im not the only one who has been slightly confused over this,(ts not overthinking its confused thinking because of lack of info.)I just wanted to be sure that I wasnt sharing all my downloads without my permission,because id ticked that box.
or maybe(Blow to my ego) I am the only one !
Many thanks to all for clearing this up,
Still, Newbee2

Just remembered, so how come you can download a file from a host that doesnt show in the browse window? often ive browsed a host because a download has started, only to find that the file i'm downloading does not appear in hosts lists?
this was one of the reasons for wanting this cleared up.
Thankyou again for help, much appreciated.

Most common reason would be that the host doesn't have the complete file. i.e. Has partial sharing turned on.
