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.

Default Could someone please help me with downloading skins?!

When i try to download a skin via limewire, it just says needs more sources, so then i try it with the internet. I save it and download it, and I go to the file and open it, and all there is is a bunch of the buttons used for the skin. How do i get to use the skin on limewire?

Just go to this web page and download the skins via LW. Lime Wire » Skins Gallery.

Right click on the files once their in the download window and have it "Find More Sources", then right click it again and have it search for the file again. Once it's downloaded you should get a popup asking you if you want to use the new skin.

Sample pic >>>>>> http://www.gnutellaforums.com/attach...layer-skin.gif


To download skins via your web browser:

Go to: Lime Wire » Skins Gallery. Find the theme you want and right click on the link "Download Via Web Browser" and click "Save Link As..." Save it to C:\Documents and Settings\"your account name"\Application Data\LimeWire\themes. "Application Data" is a hidden folder, so you'll need to set your folder options to show hidden files and folders.

Download the zip file to your theme folder. Extract the zip file to a folder called "(skin name)_theme"(within the main theme folder).

Then change the extension of the ".zip" file to ".lwtp" and leave it in the main theme folder. To change the extension, right click on the file and click "Properties". Then at the top where the name of the file is, remove "zip" and replace with "lwtp", click "ok".

Open limewire and go to View>Apply Skins>(choose skin).

See pic below \/

1st file is the original .zip file.

2nd is the extracted .zip file

3rd is the .zip file changed to an .lwtp

Wait, now I need help because I downloaded a couple, and tried them, but I wanted to go back to the red one. So I clicked it, and it didn't do anything. So can I "reuse" them, or do I have to delete them and redownload them?

Open LW and go to View>Apply Skins>Refresh Skins. That should update the list to include all the skins you've d/loaded. Then all you should have to do is click on the skin you want from the list.

If it doesn't change at first, go back to View>Apply Skins, and try clicking on the skin in the list again and it should change.

Default Vista issue

I tried to follow the instructions above, but I don't think that Limewire is reading the same location on Vista. I even tried creating the exact same folder system as listed on the web site for the theme location. I receive an error that "The skin file you selected does not exist or is invalid. Please choose another file, or use the default." I received that message when trying to switch to the Metal theme. I downloaded the black theme and tried to copy it to the above mentioned folder location, but it did not even show up in the program, even after turning off the program and restarting. Could someone explain if possible how to change the theme on a Vista computer? Thank you in advance, and I'm sure many people will want to know this information, as any custom skins etc. will all be affected by this issue.
