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.

These enhancements sound very, very interesing!!....

You've aroused my curiosity... anxiously waiting for the beta!

Keep us posted Adam!

Default 2.6.3??

I'm running Mac OS 10.2 and i just downloaded LimeWire 2.6.3. Upon startup, it goes throught the wizard startup direction--whre it asks your connection speed and if you want it to search for any files to share. it's done this every time i've started it up. two documents also came up named, err.txt and out.txt. i'm also not getting any search results. i dont know if this is just me, but i just wanted to know what's out there.

Hey, just found 6.2.3 on I sorta gave up on LimeWire once the Morpheus invasion was in full force, and Gnutella was almost useless. Gnutella seems WAY better with the new Morph out, even if it is based on an outdated core.

Second, nice on the new version. I love the extra stats - it gives LimeWire a real 1up on the other apps around. The only beef I've (still) got is that those title bars don't remember where they were put. It's kinda worse now that there's so many bars on my old low res monitor, that some can't even be read. As I recall, you said that there was an opensource dev working on that, but I suppose he gave up or didn't finish yet. Meh. Just hope I don't have to wait two years to fix it once I start my Java course.

Other than that, happy on the bug fix that I couldn't download to anything in the My Documents folder (or maybe XP SP1 fixed that, who knows?). Not that it matters who dunnit as it works fine now.

i'm in the process of reworking a lot of the code behind the tables shown in the gui. part of that includes a common way to hide/add columns, remember which ones are displaying, and order & size them correctly.

right now, only the search results do this.

i'm also playing around with an idea i think philippe mentioned first [on the gui mailing list] of making the download window include expandable trees (like the search window), so you can see the individual connections that are downloading in a swarmed download (the ones that say download from 2+ hosts). but, this is last on the list, since it'd require everything else to be working first.

once the ability to choose your columns specifically is added, it'd be nice to add a whole bunch of other column specifiers, so that people can pick exactly what they'd like to see. (like a 'chat-enabled' style browse-host indicator... and queue information in the future, etc...)

granted -- i'm doing this all as an open-sourcer, and am a full-time student, so my time is down a bit. if school hadn't started, i'd be finished this already.

I didn't know that FreeWire had an exe. If I did know about it, I wouldn't have used it. If a company doesn't trust their own coding abilities enough to write their own competitive piece of software, I would pretty much never trust any of their code enough to incorporate it into anything I was working on. Call me snobby, but that's the way it is.

just to keep you updated, dividend... i sent phase 1 of the patch off to the developer's today... included are:

- improved memory usage.
- the 'download', 'upload', and 'library' tables can have their columns hidden/displayed
- the buttons & menu items on the library now grey out if they are unusable are the current state.
- the 'size' columns in the 'download', 'upload' and 'library' sections will display either KB, MB, or TB [and with decimals if appropriate] depending on the size of the file. [thanks to another open-sourcer, philippe, for providing the code to dynamically create a size string based on the size]

the change was fairly large, the patch file being 90KB, in addition to roughly 48KB of new files [20+ of'm].

coming in phase 2+ will be:
- the connection & playlist tables will work like the newly modified ones.
- column preferences will be stored throughout startup/shutdowns [thanks to another open sourcer, chance, for providing a really good way of storing the settings]
- the results window will be rewritten to behave more appropriately.

note that it might take awhile before the changes make it into the live version. the LimeWire developer's have got some interesting things up their sleeve in terms of network usability, finding of rare files, and the overall searching scheme used... these obviously take a bit more precedence, since they let us get the results we want to see.

hopefully you'll enjoy.
