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.

Default LimeWire 4.1.2 Beta

The LimeWire 4.1.2 Beta has been released. Pro users can download it from their personal download page. The free version is available at the
LimeWire Beta Page.

Changes in LimeWire 4.1.2 include:
- Windows versions now use a new LimeWire.exe that launches LimeWire itself, instead of relying on javaw. This will help with recognizing LimeWire in firewalls & Task Manager. The new executable will also always use the most recent installed Java on your computer, which should solve some problems people experienced with LimeWire being unable to locate a suitable Java Runtime Environment.
- A newer & more refined look & feel for all non OSX skins (this is all skins on Windows, and all skins except Pinstripes & Metal on OSX) if using Java 1.4 or later.
- A new, prettier, Lime icon (instead of the plug) on non OSX systems.
- Better management of downloads that are not active, using less resources.
- Various fixes to the File-View HTML page.
- Removal of "wishlist" downloads.
- Typing backspace or delete on a row in a table will now remove that row (delete a file in the library, remove a connection, kill a download or upload, etc...).

Future beta versions will contain some more fantastic improvements to both the internals & externals, such as the addition of drag & drop (drag files directly from the library to anywhere on your computer, or drop a folder in LimeWire and have it be shared), greatly improved iTunes integration (on Windows too!), and even more!

The LimeWire Team

Default Magnet downloads enabled?

Looking forward to testing 4.1.2, and wonder if this version handles download of magnet links as described in the previous 4.1.1 beta feedback provided in detail in the following discussion forum post:

4.1.1 Magnet Test Results -- Pass and Fail
LimeWire 4.1.1 Beta

About mid-way down on the above page there's a post I started called "4.1.1 Magnet Test Results -- Pass and Fail" which is rather long and ends with my post "Magnets and Medical Apps".

An important note about the above discussion is that I wasn't asking for auto-search, only that magnet links start downloading (based on the xt=urn:sha1: info) rather than using only the hard-coded IP address specified by the xs magnet attribute. Most of the above 4.1.1. magnet test results discussuion was spent clarifying that auto-searching isn't requested, only implementing the magnet links more completely. Hope that makes sense?

Add download/beta to the URL and that should work.

Why did the version number get taken off? In the past when I went to my Pro page it said the LimeWire version at the top. How will users know what version they are downloading? Could this be looked into along with the beta link? Thanks.
