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 Win2000

Running Windows 2000 (sp1) and MS Proxy Server.

Gnotella works great for about 10-15 minutes after which the buffers increase in size and the Sent/Recv/Drop all go to zero. The search monitor is empty.

Not sure if its a bug or not, probably just M$ proxy. But since this isn't very important I just wanted to throw it out.

OK, after reading my post, I guess I wasn't very specific as to what I'm running. I will now provide that information, as well as some serious flaws in GnoTella 0.73 that I have found.

First of all, let me say that Gnotella is by far the best client that's currently available. Thanks for the awesome App Shaun and Yytrium! I only wish I could help you folks debug it or be a beta tester for ya! OK, now on to the good stuff

System is as follows:
P3-500
192 Meg Ram
CableModem Connection (with ICS Proxy Host)
Windows 2000 SP1

***Note that these problems were all seen BEFORE SP1 as well, so it's not the Service Pack... I'm fairly positive that the problems have nothing to do with ICS either...***

1) Right after the install, I played with some numbers and was able to crash the program immediately... try typing 9999999999 in some of the fields under config. You get some nice buffer overflow errs!

2) I have not been able to get many, IF ANY, search results. I CAN with Gnutella 0.56, but not with GnoTella's 0.73. Something seriously needs to be worked on here... I don't think it's network congestion either.

3) SCANNING YOUR FILES... I really really don't like this... There should be an option for GnuTella to scan your mp3 bitrates or not. It takes FOREVER to load because of this, and I'd much prefer it to not have to go through the process each load time (or maybe have it save SOME information so that it'll 'remember' what it scanned before)

4) PROCESSOR USAGE is freaking unbelievable... I'm seeing CONSTANT 70% from GnuTella, and that has just got to be fixed. I don't understand how it could be using so much - it even makes my pimped-out system stutter every now and then... Not happy....

5) The Main Problem... Things shut down. The Host Catcher gets empty, hosts remain connected but stop transferring information, and nobody can download any songs from me. I WANT people to download my music, but with the latest version 0.73, nobody can get through! What's the deal here guys?

OK, enough of my rants... I'm stuck here at work and feel like bitching, that's all. Thanks for a great product - I only wish that I could somehow help you guys to make it the best it can be.

Sincerely,
PUC_Snakeman

I really dislike people like you. You bitch about the program, e-mail us demanding a response, and then throw in a few lines about how great it is, just to appease us. Please. Remind me again how much you paid for your copy? We don't owe you anything. You don't have a damn clue how hard we're working, so lose the "I'll bitch and make a difference" attitude. Fact is anything you report, odds are we knew about it a week ago.

Whoa, I'm sorry I came across as bitching... I'm just trying to help make a great product greater...

I apologize for sounding demanding as well... In reality, I was just interested in helping out in some way. I posted some problems that I saw, and tried to provide some sort of solution (like the bitrate file caching).

What more can I say/do? Or, I guess in your perspective, you'd rather I just shut up and not try to help by posting problems? What can I do to help?

And as far as you hating me, well I guess I respect that. I think that this program is already the cream of the crop, and you guys deserve to hate people like me who post probs...

Sorry for any misunderstandings,
With much respect,
PUC_Snakeman

Whoops, I'm sorry. I thought this was the bug reports forum.

If I didn't care about how hard you are working, or really dig Gnotella, chances are I would not be here.

i thought this was bug reports forum... hmmm, PUC_snakeman you need to learn what bugs are... (comments on your previous post below...)

#1 if your screwing with the configuration chances are the program will crash or get screwed up. So this isn't a bug.

#2 the search problem IS DUE to congestion... i got great search results in the morning, but later during the day i couldn't get jack... probably because there were more people on GnuNET. So this isn't a bug, and i've heard Yythium say that many times alreay...

#3 the scanning files isnt' a bug... i suggest posting about this in the suggestions area if you want it to be changed... napster does the same thing so i don't see what the problem is.

#4 this is probably a problem on your part! i have a 133 megahertz computer with not much RAM, and it isn't causing me a problem. Try having less connections or something...

#5 i have no idea what your talkin about with #5, im not having any problem of the sort... i have many uploads and incoming connections. Again this may be due to network congestion.

I bet if you really want to help make gnotella better you think before you make your posts. I bet you didn't stop for half a second to realize that most of the problems you mentioned are caused by GnOtella, therefore Yythrium can't do jack to fix it. I bet it gets really old to hear people go on and on about stuff they have no control over!

peace,
-sir

im only have 2 problems with gnotella.
1. the high cpu usage.
2. skips in the downloaded songs. i have tested some other clients and i dont receive skips when i download something from say gnucleus. i think i heard someone say that these skips are probably caused by the program locking up for a second during the transfer.
