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.

Philippe--it's in the menu (and in the ~/Library/Preferences/LimeWire/Themes folder), but choosing it gives the "out-of-date" message and the link to update. I used your link, but for OSX I had to change the extension to zip, unzip it, and add the folder to /Themes. Looks like OSX needed the lwtp file and the unzipped folder to work. The lwtp file alone wasn't enough.

swimkid--the Pro theme uses a faint green and the LW plug rather than lime (I don't really notice much else different). You should donate to Pro anyway
Mail me I'll send you the lwtp (if no one objects) or a magnet of a screenshot. Just curious--why wouldn't you get a Pro? You are interested in p2p, and LW development is the most active and interesting as you've seen.

LimeWire 4.0.5 is released, as a service release for 4.0.4. The following changes have been made:

- Fixed some cases where scanning for old files could cause errors if a file was deleted at the wrong time.
- Ignore even more UDP sending errors.
- Stronger validation of many string parsing routines to catch more faulty network data.
- Fixed issue where reloading shared files could cause uploading routines to temporarily fail.
- Fixed TigerTree retrieval to never download the tree twice from the same host during the same connection, and to allow all trees greater than or equal our preferred depth.
- Fixed downloading themes within LimeWire to correctly expand the downloaded theme.
- Fixed creating the TigerTree of a shared file to properly close the file when finished.
- Fixed corruption checking of downloading to use the smaller depth of our created TigerTree and the downloaded TigerTree.
- Ignore more errors caused by corrupted data when loading annotations.
- Ignore more internal errors related to Java on OSX.
- Fixed rare case of Tips of The Day going out of synch.
- Fixed resuming of downloaded files to not fail in some rare conditions where the list of downloading items changes unexpectedly.

Thanks Sam.

In hindsight, where should I have looked to catch those bugs (at least the OSX ones)? I'm just wondering what clues I missed testing the last betas. Any tips?

Sorry about that. Will try harder

There are no more common easy-to-find bugs to be fixed -- we've fixed them all. These service releases are mainly to clean up rarer problems that can cause LimeWire to act less-than-perfect. None of the bugs are showstoppers, but a combination of them can lead to consuming too many resources, or not being to see XML, etc...

We have a 'console' tab planned that can list out problematic things that aren't necessarily errors, but are indicative of something going wrong. Until that's added, there's absolutely no way anyone could have found these bugs prior to them being reported as bugs.

Doubtful that it's a problem with Safari or khtml so much as one of the almost 300 errors in HTML on the home page that are reported by the HTML validator.
Safari tries to do things correctly, and is (rightfully so) slightly intolerant of non-standard markup and scripting.

Uh, the problem with the links was because of caching stylesheets. Refreshing the browser forces it to retrieve the newest files. People's browsers still had a cached version of the older style.

Also, as far as the 300 errors go, it is actually 237, and about 50 of them are because the "alt" tag on images wasn't included (so there's no text to use in place of an image while it loads), about 100 of them were an ampersand in a link was used instead of an &amp (which cause a ton of cascading parsing errors with the validator), and some minor nuances with whether or not the word 'STRICT' or 'TRANSITIONAL' is used as the document type.

Uh, Sam, can we have another beta to play with? Philippe's new optimizations sound really impressive (might this mean java will begin to lose its "slow" rep?), and I'm curious what zab and Roger have been doing with meta-editors (?).

Maybe we're getting bored here so we'll pick on the web site: 4.0.5 isn't generating enough problems to keep the forum busy.

Ah! The sweet sounds of silence in the forums!

Congrats--sure is sweet to watch the netsize grow (dang--just about hit 300,00 tonight before 'Safari' stopped showing the daily graph).

Hey--I keep hitting refresh, but still won't update and show the new opensource credits. Will Mozilla help?

A new beta is coming soon... we're making sure that everything is stable and deciding on what new features should be initially included.

The program that generates the crawler numbers & images sometimes fails -- it has nothing to do with Safari. On all browsers the # of hosts is sometimes not displayed, and the image graph sometimes fails to load. has not been updated yet. It will be.

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

He probably won't answer (most probably heard your question far too often), but I will: Morpheus didn't give anything back and harmed the network by being to greedy (connecting to too many hosts, etc, which slowed down the whole network).

Read the past GDF-messages about that subject, and you'll see, why they decided to do it. A cooperative Network needs to shun out overly greedy "members", because else all would pay dearly for the greed of a few (or those few would manage to take down the network). That's how cooperation works: As long as all abide the rules, the network runs fine, but as soon as someone begins to exploit the network, others need to shut him (or her or it) out or have the whole system degrade (from which the cooperative ones would suffer first, the leeches only later, but they'd suffer still).
