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 cant browse limewire user? is this user sharing!?

It makes me really upset when I see someone, who is a limewire user, uploading from me, and I cant browse their files! If they are not sharing then I dont want to let them upload.
Limewire seems to be totally random when choosing who I cant browse from. I see it with limewire 4.0.5, 4.0.7pro, 4.1.1pro, bearshare, ... the list goes on. I see no consistency, because there are users that fit in this category that I can browse from. If the reason I cant browse is due to nothing to browse, WHY doesnt limewire say this!
I deserve the right to boot out freeloaders!!!!

Do not ban people or kick users who you can't browse from most are still shareing but are not listing files all at once or are busey listing files to other users and their slots are full.

Here is me as an example: I share over 150 gigabytes, but I don't let people browse my share list for because it would flood my machine and slow my already slow internet connection (2000/128 adsl), and when I would allow viewing of my shared list some people would to download too many files despite the full slots and or try filling up the que list not letting anybody else have a chance in line to recieve files from an single user.

I must admit as a dial-up user i simply can't afford the bandwidth to allow browsing on my system. It simply seems slows down everything. And yes I offer a large no. of files. That's the sacrifice that dialup users (& probably a high % of them) hav to make. Since on dialup there is no differentiation of upld/dwld (or least certainly not offered locally.) So keep in mind to allow browsing actually uses up bandwidth (with all the continual searches, etc.) I'm purely speaking from a dialup point of view, but there's still plenty of us out there.

stief has a spectacular aura about

I'm trying to understand a problem in browsing I saw over the weekend. I tried to browse my other machine, and it worked only sometimes, even when the other machine had empty upload slots available.

Most of the time it worked properly if there were empty upload slots.

If browsing is dependent on open upload slots, then that is reasonable.

Is there a way a non-coder can see what the conditions are supposed to be that cause a LW host to reject a browse request?

Does the ability to browse someone elses d/l folder tie in anywhere with whether or not they have chat activated or not?

You guys that don't allow browsing - are you just keeping your files in a separate folder? Or, is there a way within the program itself to deny rights to anyone else to browse? I sure as heck ain't finding it if there is. Pete

Correct me if I'm wrong anybody, but I was under the impression the way to allow browsing was to go to the LW Monitor window & tick 'Enable Incoming Searches'. If it's not ticked then they can't browse.

This check bix is just for displaying incoming searches. It has nothing to do with whether browsing is eanbled. And in LimeWire there is no way to turn browsing a host off.

Hmm, if browsing can not be shut off, then how come that the option to look throgh another LimeWire user found on my list of people DL from my extensive library is greyed out ?

I am only able to browse 1 in 10 if that many.

On the upload side, opting to browse a user is based on whether or not chat is enabled. This will be changed/fixed in the next beta release.
