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.

Actually the scroll wheel doesn't blur things. I can very easily see how you would be confused. I mean the middle thing with the arrow pointing at it in the gif I attached.

Thumbs up Thank you Thank you

LimeWire 1.6 works fine now (in Windows 98) - it doesn't crash any more. Keep up the good work!

Only one thing: why isn't it possible to download an identical file from a different location at the same time?? When I'm downloading a file I'm not allowed to click on other files with the same name and/or size...

Default why you can't download two copies at once

It's a by-product of the way resumes are implemented. If you download a file named X of size N, it's stored in the Incomplete folder as "T-N-X". If you later try to resume a file of the same size and name, LimeWire will be able to resume and append to that file by just checking that it exists on disk.

If you were to download two copies of file X at the same time, they would be interleaved on disk in T-N-X! In fact this used to happen in an ancient version of LimeWire. That's why LimeWire enforces that only one downloader has a copy of T-N-X at a time.

Now, it would be possible to allow you to resume a la LW1.5 while still downloading in parallel a la LW1.4. But that's a fair amount of work to implement, and it's not really clear that it's a needed feature. Besides, if we were to implement swarmed downloads in the future--no promises here, but it's certainly possible--that would render that code obsolete.

Default OS/X notes

We just posted a slightly modified version of the OS/X installer in The only difference is that the background on the spinning lime image is transparent.

Here are the bugs people have reported on OS/X, and our diagnosis:

<li>Configuration windows appears after every startup. We can't reproduce this. Is LW in a directory without write permissions? It needs to write limewire.props to record configuration settings. (Ideally we'd write this to the resource bundle, but we haven't firgured out how.)
<li>Crashes on first startup. We occasionally get this but don't know why. A problem with the JDK on OS/X perhaps?
<li>Graphics become scrambled. We can't repeat this.
<li>Couldn't uncompress .sit file when downloading. We can't repeat this. Try dragging the .sit file directly to stuffit.

Thanks for the feedback, and please let us know of any more problems.

Cool LimeWire 1.6 beta more reliable

Limewire 1.6 beta is much more reliable than 1.4. While running 1.4 it used to quit unexpectedly (with code 139), after several hours. Limewire 1.6 has not crashed once.

You have really made some improvements. Thanks for MacOSX install. It is great! I just dragged it into my old Limewire 1.4 folder and double-clicked it. The setup found the Shared folder. I did experience the errors you mentioned though not since yesterday. It is really cool to have a single file that is both the 'installer' and the application.

Wink 1.6 beta suggestion

For the resizable columns, in some of the tabs, the cursor does not change to the resizing cursor but remains as an arrow. Resizing still works with the arror, but it would be nice to see the little <-|-> cursor, just to confirm that resizing is possible.

I'm pretty sure Java can do that. I use a text editor called Jext that's written in Java, and I'm fairly sure it had scroll wheel compatibility. It's open source, so you should be able to figure it out pretty quickly.

Other than that, keep up the great work. It's fun to see so much cool technology in one place. I'll send you bug reports, and maybe if I find some time, see what I can do to contribute.

RaaF is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

Well I don't know if this is of any help,
I had no problems running 1.5 in winME, maybe becouse I keep my system clean with adaware, and i am a Phex fan, so I had a java runtime enviroment installed. ( ? )
But I recently installed win2K as a 2nd os and I decided to install limewire1.6 in it but it appears to be more buggy than 1.5 .
The screen is flickering when a search is performed and the programme seems to respond more slow when it runs for over 1hr.
