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.

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.

Question Hello from New/Old Member

I downloaded and I believe I subscribed (paid subscription) to download your program. I did this over a year ago and quite frankly then never used your program. I wanted to download some music today so I tried to open your program which is in my computer however it will not open. Was there a time limitation or something on the program and you have it locked out?
For some reason also, you have no record of my email address. I put in every email address I ever used and you recognize none of them. I would like to receive a reply from someone.
Thanks/Lee

12 months ago the 'default' buy option was for 6 months only for updates & support.

This site is not a limewire 'we' ... we are not Limewire, this is the gnutella forums which represents many gnutella client programs, one of which includes LimeWire.

Reasons for your problems are either installation or connection. Check those section Sticky's at the top of each of those sections for tips to solve your problem.

* And please do not go blaming people for 'your' not reading the buy options properly such as the 6 month support & updates; go back to the buy page option & check for yourself what options you forgot to take more notice of.

Hello from New/Old Member: Well thank you "all knowing one" for criticizing me about my reading habits and also for using Gnutella Forum for trying to reach them! Is it my fault that Gnutella is something THEY USE to communicate? I know very little about Limewire and have really never downloaded music from them. They did take my money however which is foolish because there are FREE sites out there. I know even less about Gnutella and still less about you, whether you are connected with Gnutella, Limewire, or just not connected period. I was hoping to get some help from this Forum but I can see where that is not possible.

'If' you read the Forum Rules (click here) .. perhaps you might understand we cannot help much without certain details. The forum rules are 'in your face' at top of every page you see both before registering & before you make your first post. Get annoyed at a moderator or the forum administrator for pointing this out to you. lol It was your pure arrogance not reading them, scrolling past them to get to the post box ...

p2p = peer to peer = person to person. So p2p is sharing files from person to person. So files on the gnutella network ... music, videos, etc. are what we choose to share to others. When you connect when using LW you are connecting & sharing via other users. We are happy to help on these forums & we do it as a hobby.

Is your program opening at all? Or is the problem it is unable to connect? System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)

Default Newbie response

I got annoyed only because you let me have it with both barrels and told me I didn't know how to read, etc instead of being a little decent and helpful. You are still calling me arrogant etc. There is a direct link from Limewire to Gnutella. Gnutella is on the Limewires website for help on a forum. So what is one to believe if one cannot go there to get help? I think your reply to my post, was rude and out of line. But that aside.
I could find no other way to contact Limewire via telephone number. One gets busy and cannot spend hours wastefully. Thus I thought I would try the forum. When I click on the Limewire.exe file NOTHING HAPPENS. I was under the belief that the charge was a one time charge. If I remember correctly that was the way it was explained to me. Water under the bridge now. I think I will just forget about Limewire and find another place to download music from. I suppose I will have to uninstall Limewire.
By the way, at the top of the Gnutella Forums it encourages persons New to the forum, to post as a Newbie which I did to become acquainted with the forum people etc. At least that was a friendly gesture. I can't say much beyond that!
Some other free download websites would be useful.
Lee

When you downloaded Pro, you still have the installer right? I'm sure you were not silly enough to trash the installer you paid for.

If that's the case, then follow the advice here Reinstall options: Limewires pop up screens not clickable... since I can at least ascertain you are a 'windows' user & not linux or mac.

Yes that one off offer for pro does not include support unfortunately. BTW Pro support is reknown for being very slow, much faster responses are received here. But the point I was making is ... we cannot help greatly in some cases without system details, none of which you supplied.

(The Attachment below shows what you saw 'above' the post when you were attempting to create a new thread. And you get upset because we were you were 'still' stubborn not to read the rules despite them being 'in your face' several times.)

Vista is more difficult to work with that XP. But some more information would be very helpful. System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)

For your Vista software firewall, follow the advice here: http://www.limewire.org/wiki/index.p...r_Cant_Connect
