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 I also can't connect...

I had to restore my computer and now Bearshare version 5.2.5.1 will not connect.
It would always connect up until a few days ago.
I still have it in my laptop and it works fine from there.
I'm afraid to do a system restore on that one because I'm sure that I will get the same problem. I may have to do a system recovery on that one because unfortunatly my laptop got a virus...
Any suggestions?
Thanks.
Angie

Default nothings wrong with your computer bearshare sold out

the reason you can no longer get your bearshare to connect after downloading it..is all the old bear share versions are now dead they no longer work. a few links for old bearshares will let u up grade to the new bearshare ..that is owned by Recording Industry Association of America..thats right the makers of bearshare sold out to the man !

you can of course use the new bearshare if you like and pay 1 dollar a song you download.
im afraid pretty soon there will be no more free file shariing..ive heard the governement is planning to go after limewire now and the other file share networks. and do to them what they done to bearshare. make you pay ofr every song u download. load of crap aint it ... if you think im lieing ask around and everyone will tell you what i just told you...

My old betas of 5.1 are still working. Perhaps the 5.2 versions have been shut down but the 5.1s are still running normally.

Default The Problem is...

that it does connect in my laptop.
Because I did a system restore on the desktop and downloaded it again, this one is the one that doesn't work.
It only connects to Bearshare 6.

i am having a similar problem with 5.1.0b25. after looking around for a replacement for the tortoise known as emule, i found Shareaza, it's notably slower than emule. i then tried Shareazaplus, which is much faster, but i get a nag screen indicating it's a Alpha and not suitable for general use. and i also read a post somewhere that at some point in the past one of the developers had added some 'stuff' to it, and was removed from the development team. i now have bearshare 5.1 beta. i first ran it on a frozen snapshot, which i test all new (to me) software on first, and was pretty impressed with the speeds. i like the feature set of Shareaza better, but the mission was to increase dn/up speeds and Bearshare was certainly much faster. but it has not connected.

well it seem as i was typing this Bearshare is connected, but UDP is firewalled while TCP is not. i checked the rules in the firewall i use Online Armor, and UDP is granted the same autonomy as TCP. perhaps a restart of Bearshare will clear that up.

the only reservations i have so far with Bearshare is or was webstats.dat which Prevex2 nailed as malware. it also was nailed in my frozen snapshot by Prevx2, but i allowed it to run under 'Probation' instead of 'Jailing' and eventually cleaning it up. i googled webstats.dat and there seemed to be a general agreement that it is malware. so when i decided to run Bearshare on my system snapshot, i did all ow Prevx2 to 'Jail' it and then clean it from my system. Bearshare seems to be running fine without it, which is good because i trust Prevx and if it says Bearshare contains malware, then the bear would have to go if it could not function without that file. and lastly i would like to ask is there a user guide for the 5.1 beta as the newer guide seems not to relate at all to the older builds.

For now, I am using Ares and it gives me as many results as Bearshare. I usually look for remixes. As you say, others run slower than Bearshare.
I hope that it gets resolved soon.

Concerning the issue of 'replacements' then the eDonkey and Overnet networks are about rarity and not speed however if you obtain the clean version of eDonkey2000 then you'll find its actually 'faster' than using eMule and indeed 'better' than.

At the moment the most populated eDonkey server is quite low so results aren't as good as normal but peer exchange will do its bit.
