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.

Angry what's new in 2.79?

My 6-mo subscription is about to expire and, frankly, I'm considering *not* re-upping. The reason is because Limewire STILL doesn't maintain a changelog or post info about the updates. I know I'm not alone in complaining about this. It's very inconsiderate of them and suggests that they're not organized enough to do this most-basic bit of documentation.

So, for the Nth time -- what's different in 2.79?

bug fixes. Most of the minor releases are bug fixes. Major releases contain new features, - LimeWire usually posts the list of new changes in the beta forum for every major release.

For longer changelog, you can simply subscribe to the cvs@core.limewire.org and cvs@gui.limewire.org mailinglist, - but honestly - most users do not seem to care about it and I don't remember anyone - except for you and maybe one or two others in the forum - complaining about LimeWire's changelogs.

I find that rather surprising!

I, personally am usually curious to hear the bug fixes of even the "minor" releases. I thought others would be curious as well... but maybe I'm just too geeky!

This is daft, of course people want to know what has changed. If a program has lots of bugs people will download the latest version without knowing what has changed. Once it has got to a point where it works pretty well, virtually all of the time; users are left wondering, why do I want to upgrade ?

Have I ever suffered from any of the bugs that have been fixed since 2.7.3 ?

It's not like a security update. Most of it are installer issues anyway or some compatibility problems / minor inconviniences (weird behaviour). - If something is working, why would anybody want to upgrade unless it brings new features and that is not the case with minor releases.

That's the whole point -- you know what the changes are but we (the unbathed masses) don't. And, now that you mention it, I've tried twice to subscribe to the mailto:announce-subscribe@limewire.org mailing-list and it keeps failing. It sends me the initial "Please reply to this" message but then, no matter how I do the reply, it always comes back "invalid account."

And, Yes, I have seen many many many other complaints posted here about the lack of info re version changes. I've even complained via the LimeWire-Pro tech support email, so they know that their paying supporters want it... they just can't manage to get it together.
______________________

I just tried it again (3rd time now) using my home email instead of my office. In response to my confirmation/reply message it says, "Hi! This is the ezmlm program. I'm managing the
announce@limewire.org mailing list. Oops, that confirmation number appears to be invalid."
______________________

Christ, I tried replying to the "invalid" message and now it worked! So, now the question becomes: Are the changes (and new sub-version releases) announced on the Announce list?

They announce@limewire.org list has not been used for months. The only truly active lists are as far as I know dev@[core/gui].limewire.org and the cvs lists mentioned above. But the developers often post a short notice somewhere in the forum (not necessarily in a new thread) when they are releasing a new version.
