Moderators

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.

I think so. I haven't found anyone else using it so far, though. I hope there is some kind of symbol or icon.

Default finding chattable people

Yes, right now you just have to right click and see if the "Chat with host" option pops up. You can do this from search results, uploads, or downloads.

I agree that some sort of icon or other indication is needed to find chattable people. No promisies, but we'll almost certainly do that for the next release.

Regarding the Mac installer, I would suspect that people are attempting to use the installer that does not contain a JVM even though they do not already have the JVM present on their machines.

The primary LimeWire 1.7 installer for the Mac includes an updated MRJ, version 2.2.5, that has important improvements, but that is also a bit larger than previous versions. This pushed the installer size up to about 11MB. We decided to give people the option to use that installer without the MRJ in case they already had it installed. This installer, however, will not work if they do not already have the MRJ. I am not positive what will happen in this case, but it is quite likely that the scenario that you described would occur.

That said, we also did upgrade the Mac installer to use a new version of InstallAnywhere from ZeroG (version 4.01 as opposed to 3.5). This should, however, be more stable than previous versions. The previous installer had problems on some systems, but this one should be more successful.

Do you know if people are having problems with the installer that includes the MRJ, the installer without the MRJ, or both?

Thanks.

Default Mac Installer

I am not sure if they were using the new MRJ, an old version, or none at all. This question has popped up several times on the board before, and every time, the question has gone unanswered. It came to my attention again when this post appeared.

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showth...&threadid=3382

All of the people who posted were unregistered, so I doubt we'll be able to contact them directly. ¿Maybe we could post a reply to the thread asking them to give us info about their MRJ? If they do visit the boards frequently, then they might see it and respond with the info you need to discern the cause of the problem. Just a suggestion, though. :-)

Sorry, I don't mean to be ignorant, but i'm running9.2, i'm assuming the runtime for java is up to date. I guess depending on what system people are running will determine if things are cool or not. Is that correct. (or if they use the software update application.) I downloaded the version not needing an MRJ update and it works great for me. (for what that's worth)

Thank you for your response. Hopefully, we'll be able to figure out this problem soon. If you don't mind, I'd like to aska a few questions:

Have you used program that would have already installed an updated version of MRJ? Do both 1.6 and 1.7 beta behave the same way on your system?

Thanks again! :-)

I posted to the thread that you mentioned. It looks like most of the people posting were probably using the 1.6d installer from the dates of their posts. We have definitely had problems with those InstallAnywhere 3.5 installers on different Mac configurations, but we were hoping that the IA 4.01 version (the version we're using in LimeWire 1.7) would work a little bit better.

The tricky part here is that we're really doing the simplest install possible, so if the installer fails, there's really not much we can do about it except wait until InstallAnywhere releases an updated version (which they will be doing fairly shortly).

Hopefully, however, people will not have problems with the new installer.

Talking

I have yet to have any problems installing any version of Limewire. 1.7 seems to run a little smoother on my computer. With 1.6d, I had some problems with 5-10 second freezes where everything would stop for a minute. After boosting the memory to 40k, it did seem to help the situation. I have yet to encounter any freezes with 1.7.

That's great to hear. We fixed a problem in previous versions of LimeWire where we were doing unnecessary dns lookups on new incoming connections, which could freeze on the Mac in the manner you specified.

We changes this code, so hopefully it will not occur in the future. It can still freeze initially on startup because there are some required dns lookups that we have to do, but other than that it should be fixed. Please let us know if you see freezing occurring again in the middle of a LimeWire session.
