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.

Alright I posted this once but the thread just kind of fell into the abyss. I talked to M.O. awhile back about his seekable integrated player. I believe he said he sent the code in. Did you all recieve it and/or plan to make it part of Limewire?

Yes, im finding it hard to keep up also, because im on dialup and the LimeWire Windows installer does not work for me, so i have to download the international installer, 14MB

Is there anyway the Installer can be changed, or the international installer made smaller?

Note that iTunes is a DRM-enabled media player/manager/encoder. This means that it will preserve the additional frames inserted in the MP3 stream that contains a licence ID for its registered user.

Some people are not aware of this. Still iTunes is safe to use as it will not add DRM data into downloaded files that don't have it. (I think it will not do that immediately). The good thing about iTunes is its very easy ID3v2 tag generator, which allows easy labelling of files. But it's best not to use it to rip your Audio-CDs into MP3 files: the generated MP3 will contain the registration ID, so if this file is shared and uploaded a lot, the DRM data may allow identifying who ripped the unlicenced copy of the copyrighted CD.

Windows Media does it too, and in a near future, most popular MP3 encoders will do so too. As long as the MP3 ripped audio is for personal use (for example to transfer to a mobile MP3 player), this is safe and great.

iTunes is much more lightweight than Windows Media Player or RealOne Player, which are very boring to use with too many features and are heavy resource hogs, and cute but unnecessary and complex skins...

Many users like the fact that this iTunes player is just what they need, with no excessive interface features. Its main interest is certainly the ease with which you can manage your media library, with a good enough OS integration so that transfering and managing media files becomes really easy on Windows and Mac OS.
LimeWire is international. Help translate LimeWire to your own language.

LimeWire 3.9.5 beta is definitely looking good! I did find one minor problem. When browsing some hosts, instead of LimeWire showing their real IP address on the tab, it shows their LAN IP address (192.168.*.*) when they aren't on the same LAN as me even though it gets their file listing just fine.

Bug: When sorting by high bitrates, the double digits bitrates comes before the three digits bitrates.

Java 1.4.2_04
SuSE Linux 9.0
"firefox $URL$" as the web browser in LimeWire's options.

When I right click anything in my library and choose "Magnet details for file," firefox opens up and the site loads which typically only happens if the "localhost" port limewire is passing refused the connection. Sadly, I can't see what port that is before loads.

bug in the UP localisation system:
When starting LW in leaf mode, LW tries to find one x-local-pref:fr ultrapeer. But after a while, it doesn't try to connect to them anymore when you lose a connection. I think the x-local-pref thing (3 connections by default) is respected when running in UP however.

If you control click multiple listings in the search results while more results are coming in, LimeWire loses the selection repeatedly until you right click the tab and select "Stop Search"

Re: Push Proxies in download mesh.
You'd be surprised how little this would help, in the current incarnation atleast. Alternate locations go out of date very quickly, and adding another very transient piece of data (the ultrapeer of a host) to the information would just pollute the mesh with lots more garbage, leaving the directly connectable hosts in the dust. Push proxied hosts also are completely meaningless for other hosts that are firewalled. Perhaps once fw->fw transfers are in, we'll take another look at how effective push proxies can be in the mesh.

Re: "seekable integrated player"
No clue what this is. I know we recently (a version or two ago) did some changes with the player... dunno if that was it.

Re: lots of updates
What is going wrong with the English installer?

Re: LAN IPs in browse-host
LimeWire doesn't actually know their real IP (atleast at the time the tab is created). It connects using push proxies, so the results display fine.

Re: Sorting bitrate wrong
Yeah, that's always been that way. It sorts by alphanumeric values, not numeric values. (So it's not really a double digit then triple digit thing, it's that the number 9 or 6 is higher than the number 1.) It'll be fixed at some point, but probably not for 4.0.

Re: Firefox & Linux
Not sure what's going wrong. LimeWire should be listening on a specific port for the request. To be honest, I'm not sure this will be fixed before 4.0 unless it's also happening on Windows and/or OSX.

Re: Localization & connections
This is by design. As a leaf, LimeWire will try for about 30 seconds to find an Ultrapeer of the same locale. If it doesn't find one, it just gives up (instead of creating massive connection churn). As an Ultrapeer, LimeWire doesn't actively seek the same locale, but instead reserves 3 slots for incoming connections of the same locale. When LimeWire 4.0 ships, connecting to users of the same locale will be much easier because the locale is now placed in the pong.

Re: Losing the selection
Fixed in the development version.
