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 Downloaded songs on LW that were infected

I almost lost my new computer downloading songs from limewire, I have only the basic Limewire 5.1.2 if I was to download pro LW would this prevent the problem of getting files that have a virus. I very leary on downloading anything now from LW. I first noticed a problem last month when I was trying to download songs, Norton was able to remove the virus. With the old LW I was able to see type of file I wanted (mp3 or wma etc). Since I'am still learning how LW works I did some hunting around on the forums to find out how to prevent the type of files I don't want to download. I have kept my eye open on the type of files and size, but a couple of days ago when I had downloaded afew songs, I thought were safe, but three of them were infected 2 song by F***h H**l ( L**e *e N*v*r L*v*d *t A*l & T*e S*cr*t L**e both singles mp3) The other I don't even remember downloading K***y C*e***y mp3. Who ever the P2P was that I had downloaded the songs from tried to hijack my computer. Thank Goodness, I have Norton 360 and it was able to prevent the hijack & help me remove the infected files. This is why I'm very leary of downloading & using LW or sharing my music files until I know if LW pro will solve this from happen again. So If I was to stop using the basic LW and change to Pro LW would this prevent downloading bad files. I would like to think that this wasn't a (P2P) person like myself that had infected those files letting others download & tried to hijack my computer. Can LW tell who the P2P was that I had downloaded the songs from if I was to give the title, artist & date downloaded, I would hate to see anyone else lose there computer, it was a very scarey & bad feeling what had happened after downloading those songs & not having any control of what was happening to my computer for a short time until Norton was able to stop the hijack. Very happy that I have paid for a good program Norton 360 to prevent this. When I bought my new computer six months ago I wanted to download pro LW but I noticed LW doesn't have a secure site to give creditcard information. My husband has always said to me you get what you pay for, free is not always the best. Hopefully someone from LW will have an answer in helping me. (Will downloading pro LW help prevent this from happening again or if there is any other solution that I can do from preventing this from happening.) I know nothing is always 100% fireproof I'm open to listen to any new ideas in preventing this happening to me or anyone else downloading those viruses. I keep my computer updated and usually ran a scan with Norton after I have downloaded any new files with LW, the first time I didn't run a scan. Or do I just uninstall LW and pay for a more secure service.

LW Pro will make absolutely no difference to spam & spam viruses. LW Beta 5.2 has been experimenting with ridding of known virus spam, however the actual action does not happen until end of downloading, instead of an earlier action. If you wish to check the LW 5.2.x beta see LimeWire 5.2.2 (Beta) - Lime Wire

Some search tips: 1. more virus avoidance tips, ___ 2. How to find music

LW 5.2.x beta changes listed here: Changelog - LimeWire

I would just like to add that your husband is wrong about free programs, there are some very good ones out there. In fact they are so good that they rival (go toe to toe with) their "paid for" cousins.

You should read this thread, I'm sure you will find it interesting:
