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.

Doh! Found it, it works, and is perfectly clear enough.

btw, do you look after magnets too? I wondered if MagnetClipboardListener could be easily enabled for OSX and Windows, as a way of testing magnets with the CVS versions.

Default QUIT/ Library

Sam, the OS X "Quit" menu problem didn't show up today, though the conditions were similar to before. Just wondering if it was fixed, or if I should continue trying to repeat it.

a few Library notes:
--I assume DnDing a file from one Library folder to another isn't enabled, and that command-clicking a file among a selection still deselects all the others instead of the expected file. (just checking).

--it would be good if the virtual media folders were also created in the OS. That would make the Explore button more functional.

--I REALLY like the fact that individual files can be shared or unshared without losing all the hits/locations data.

--adding a Shared/Unshared column to the Library would help check which files need to be added. A "Date Modified" (or Added) column, as in iTunes or Finder windows would also be useful.

--when sharing a group of unshared files, any already shared files among the selection end up with all their hits/locations data reset. Would be nice if already shared files were ignored in this minor case.

-the duplicate files handling on the Search pane is a very welcome addition. The dialog L&F is relatively cluttered on OSX, and perhaps default settings could be optimized with automatic defaults.

Default LAN transfers/connections

Any chance LAN transfers can be fixed for this setup? I realize the upload limits, which are set for uploads to external clients on both machines is the problem.

-IBook G3 and an iMac G4; both running 10.3.9; both have separate static local IP's to enable uploads; both can accept incoming; both have upload bandwidth set at 90KB/s--about 85%
-G3 has a static IP of and is running as an UP with the CVS version
-G4 is, running LW 4.8.1 Pro as a leaf.

Search results from either machine only sometime show the other's files as blue stars, so that part works OK, but when I started LW in a different user account on the G4, the results just showed as the regular T1 speed on the G3, but the G4's search for "stief" quickly showed blue files.

Searching with the G3 for the name of the G4's user account quickly returns a list of shared files. Grr Please remove user account names from the keywords advertised in the path.

When the G4 downloaded a video from the G3, the screenshot taken from the G3's monitor pane shows the upload split between the router's static local IP and the proper static IP of the server. Any chance such transfers could bypass the upload controls, and be shown as a single transfer?

Sorry I can't explain this more clearly, but I hope LAN transfers can be revisited before LW 5

Default bug report streamlined?

--is there an automatic limit to max of three "internal error" dialogs? When LW is the foremost window, I get a bug dialog every few minutes, but overnight I've never had to get rid of more than three.

--If the preference for Bug Reports is set to "Always Review", could LW just skip the initial dialog and just pop up the review window with the Discard button (and Send button, for regular release versions)? This would be easier, and would help ensure that I didn't review the same error report more than once


[edit--overly large "discard button example" removed to save thread space]

The bug report dialog was limited two three at once since its inception.

The problem with popping up the 'Review' dialog immediately is that it is very ugly and filled with information that most users don't care about. It's useful for us, and for beta testers / CVS users, but that's about it. Also, 'Always Review' is the default option.

Thanks again for the info. Makes sense.

Either adding the discard button to the reviewed report, or adding the exception type to the initial dialog would be welcome.

I forgot to say earlier that I like the Help->Generate Error menu item, and hope it makes it to the release version (or something similar that can be copied and posted easily in the forums).

"Generate Error Report" is never going to be in a released version. It's there for debugging. We could, however, have something that generates the sample information from the bottom.

We'll look into adding the exception type to the initial dialog as well as the discard button to the review window. Both are good ideas.

Default updated CVS Fri Jun 17 16-02-26

re the generated bug report, thought you might be interested to know that under low HD conditions, it did not pop up a window (but the terminal recorded the info). LW quit just fine.

--this CVS now refreshes all the Library when the refresh button is used. With only the Incomplete folder selected, that was, previously, the only Library refreshed. Actually, I miss that, but if that's the price of having the new dynamic updating of the Shared Library whenever a file is added from the Finder, that's fine by me.

--I LIKE the option to choose the download folder for individual files from the Downloads Panel. Nice!

--Glad to see the bounty for client side queuing: I hope LW'll also consider Pipes rather than slots?
I'm happily wasting so much time downloading picture collections from single hosts Most only allow me to download three pics at a time, so it's too easy to gas hours on a single collection. I wonder if "pipes" might be more efficient than "slots". I.E, once I've opened a pipe to a host, the bitstream can be maintained irrespective of the number of files that make up that bitstream. My upstream bandwidth is greatly under-utilized given the kinds of files I share, but even so I've seen a few banned greedy clients who really aren't and wish I could allow their client a "download pipe" (timed?) rather than a three file slot limit. Just wishing and dreaming

--re the gui slowdown for closing search tabs:
it looks like it is proportionate to the number of entries under that tab. Closing a browsed host tab with 8000 entries can lock up the gui for quite a while, but a tab with just a few entries closes quickly. Can the 'clearing' of entries (or whatever is going on) be deferred to the background, so the active window can respond without waiting for the clearing?

--this gui lockup also happens while waiting for a browsed host's results to show and sort for the first time. i.e, a gui lock happens while, say, 8,000 files show in the browsed host tab; another lock when I filter for Images, and then another while sorting by size. Other tabs or panes are completey unresponsive until the results are displayed several minutes later. However, uploads, connections and downloads are still progressing (seen in Activity Monitor), althought the GUI shows them frozen.

lastly, this latest CVS is just as stable here as the regular release. IMHO, it's past beta already, although I am hoping the spam filters make it to the beta first.

Cheers. btw, I noticed acqx has released a beta that sounds like it has tapped into all the countless hours Sam and Justin have done (without mentioning them specifically, of course)
No doubt many more contributors are also finding their work quietly appearing elsewhere. Well, I know congrats aren't $, but congrats and appreciation anyway
