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.

Question 1.6d on OSX

I have been using Limewire 1.4 for months and have had no problems at all.
A few weeks ago I took the bait and installed OSX, then Limewire 1.6d.
Since then, I have been having trouble maintaining connections. With OS9 and 1.4, I would have 4TB to 30 TB of files within 60 seconds.
Now, it takes up to 15 minutes to get 4TB-8TB, and as soon as I download (the downloads work fine) a file or two, the connection(s) drop to 150 megs or so. I set the connections for 4, and my TTL to no more than 5.
I'm running it on a 350 G4 with 700 megs of memory, and an ISDN 128 connection. If I maintain 2 connections for an hour I'm lucky. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Talking Praise/Bug/Request

First let me say that I am Limewire fan. Back in my stupid-days I used Bearshare which worked fine, but I am furious that about what Bearshare does to your operating system without permission. (When you install Bearshare, it permanently alters your Windows registry, throwing out everything that should be there except for about 3 or 4 items. When my volume control disappeared on the fourth computer I installed it on, I finally traced the common thread back to Bearshare, but it was way too late) DON'T INSTALL BEARSHARE!

To get back on track... I upgraded my Limewire to 1.6 as soon as it became available. It works well and I am quite happy with the latest version. Most notably I like sending it to the tray so I can forget about it and let others share from me all they like.

I do however want to report a small bug. (It's good to report small bugs because that means that there are no major bugs to worry about). On the Monitor tab, I click once to highlight an item that has somebody either downloaded, is downloading, or attempted to download. But before I even have the time to move my mouse to choose what action I want (Kill Selected, Clear Inactive, or Options...), the item always UN-highlights! This makes it impossible to actually use the "Kill Selected" feature since you don't have enough time to click that button after you highlight an item (and don't even try highlighting multiple items).

Now one multi-part request for version 1.7 or 2.0 (whichever is next). First, you should have a "launch limewire when Windows (or other OS) starts". This should only be recommended for those with "always on" connections to the internet. Second, that feature should have an additional option to start minimized in the system tray. This will greatly increase the number of hosts sharing files.

Thank you Limewire

Default v1.6d

The new version does not seem to work at all.
After installation, the desktop icon points to:
-cp . RunLime
double clicking produces no response. There does not appear to be an exe file in the installed directory.

I posted a reply earlier about what I thought was a difference in LimeWire involving kde and Gnome. I think I've actually found it's a difference between Mandrake and Redhat, while LimeWire runs normal on RedHat it does not on Mandrake.

I'll try to respond to as many people as I can here.

To the original user posting about sharing the entire hard drive, I cannot think of any reason why LimeWire would be listing 16 files as shared when you only have on file in that directory unless you are also sharing a second directory.

To the OSX user seeing reduced horizon statistics -- these numbers are only there to give you a rough estimate of the files available, and they do not accurately reflect the true state of the network. I would not use them to determine the quality of your connection.

For the user who posted the suggestions and bug reports, we will likely do all of these things at some point. The bug in the Monitor tab will definitely be fixed with the next release, and we will add the option to run LimeWire at startup at some point. The only thing that is tricky here is to detect that LimeWire is already running when the user starts another one. Should that start a second LimeWire, or should it detect the original one running and simply make it visible?

Ed- is the target of the shortcut only:

-cp . RunLime

or does it also include something like:

C:\System32\javaw.exe -cp . RunLime

(Does it include something like the first part with javaw.exe in it?)

As far as LimeWire for FreeBSD, LimeWire 1.6d should work fine with Java 1.2 and higher, so there should not be any problems with the current version of Java available for FreeBSD.

Angry helpppppppppp

I downloaded 1.6 and saved it to the folder where 1.4 was. Version 1.4 was over written and 1.6 doesn't work. Clicking on the desktop icon does nothing. Shortcut target is

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\javaw.exe -cp . RunLime

Maybe the RIAA created a non-working Limewire prgram, secretly set up this site, and is merrily watching the installed base of users steadily drop.

Guess it's back to Morpheus
