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.

Treatid is flying high

LimeWire 2.5.1 (pro), Java 1.4, W2K...

A couple of recoverable error bug reports have been sent to

Minor detail - probably more to do with Java than LimeWire... The dialogue boxes for selecting download and share locations do not support Windows network locations - i.e. I cannot browse to a network location (e.g. \\Mark\D\LimeWire).

I /can/ enter the location manually and it all seems to work (albeit - hashing of a few Gig across a 100Mb network connection is not very practical).

I haven't yet been able to shut down LimeWire and restart it without LimeWire getting locked into a state where it uses 100% CPU (Athlon XP 1500). It might eventually recover from this state - but not within the half hour to an hour that I've allowed it so far.

I have a suspicion that the problem relates to an inconsistency between the download.dat file and the actual files in the incomplete folder. If I delete the entire contents of the incomplete folder then LimeWire will start up without a problem (obviously with no files in the download queue).

Usually LimeWire does not immediately use 100% of CPU, but starts to do so at some point as it goes through the download queue.

I still have a problem whereby uploads drop off to 0KB/s and effectively block my upload queue (I have my upload bandwidth throttled).

When upgrading from 2.4.4 to 2.5.0 and then to 2.5.1, LimeWire did *not* keep my previous settings.

LW 2.5.3 / Mac OS 9.2.2

I previously said I was getting a lot of uploads, but I was only glancing occasionally at occupied slots and not paying attention to speed. I have now noticed that they all seem to sit at 0k and if I give them more bandwidth, they disappear.

Still LW 2.5.1...

I've been reminded (since it has just happened again) that occasionally LimeWire gets its names in a twist.

I've just downloaded a file from a series (avi) - LimeWire says the download is complete and the size was around 330MB.

The actual file that was downloaded is from the same series but has a different name and is around 20MB. (size is irrelevant - I mention it only to illustrate that the files do not match - the previous occassion that I caught, the downloaded file was larger than the file LimeWire thought it had downloade).

The actual downloaded file is correctly named - but was never in my download queue.

I think the weakest link in LimeWire is the upload part, as duplicate uploads are allowed and bandwidth utilisation is far from optimal, especially when throttled.
Also the settings aren't remembered when installing a new version, something new because prior versions took precedent preferences on osX.
I hope to see 2.6 in near future to correct those issues

i really find it ridiculous, that you claim this (german) translation was made by a native speaker. never! when i look at the german messages in cvs i can't believe that this translation is from a german...

Interesting on the German issue. Our translator is actually a native German speaker. Are there specific words or phrases that should be changed? Feel free to go to join the translation project at:

Phillipe Verdy, one of our open source programmers, would be delighted if you wanted to take up making changes to that document. It's really easy to do -- you just have to change a text file.

Hi Adam,
I'm curious, what you are going to implement next. Could you please give us a quick preview of LimeWire 2.6? I know that you are working on non-blocking IO for Java 1.4 users (which as far as I do understand, will not improve the network itself significantly) and out-of-band replies (IMHO a very good idea).

Do you plan on implementing upload queues soon? I think it would be a great addition since it could really reduce the amount of requeries sent through the network while dramatically increasing the download success rate.

What does LimeWire think about partial file sharing. It'd be certainly useful for larger files. Do you expect it to be implemented soon?

How about gnutella weblinks? There are already a few websites offering links directing to files on the gnutella network via magnet-uris. I suspect integrating different browsers with java to implement one-click gnutella links is probably a little complicated, but I'd be already content with the possibility to copy the weblink, paste it into LimeWire and hit the "Add To Wishlist" button.

Another great feature that I would really, really love to see, would be the ability to run the LimeWire core in daemon mode, accessing it through a graphical frontend (possibly even from a remote computer) or even accessing the core from a webbrowser (with some kind of middleware mediating between browser and limewire core, - possibly a browser plugin). I believe it would be a great addition, if you could just click on a gnutella weblink, a go!zilla-like window pops up, showing you the progress of your download and a few minutes (hours, days,...) later the file is on your disk.

Maybe the last one is nothing for the next point release, but how about the other features: partial filesharing, upload queues and weblinks?

IMHO almost every phrase must be changed. many sentences just seem, as if they were translated by a machine. that's the reason i don't really believe in you claiming that the translation is by a native speaker. if it is so, then tell the native speaker, he should translate the whole messages more freely, as no german will ever understand what f.e. is meant bei a "hauptrechner". (in fact it isn't even right, if you tranlate it back it is something like a "main computer" and not a host.)
