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.

Exclamation Bugs in beta 4.9.0

Here's two bugs in the beta, one minor and one serious.

Minor: sometimes a download hits 100% and just stops. It doesn't go to "complete" or anything; just shows "downloading", 100% progress, 0kb/s throughput. If you pause and resume the download it will sit forever "queued" showing 100% progress. When you restart Limewire it will show up as corrupt.

Major: I just tried to get a particular file. It downloaded quickly, and then the status showed "Disk Problem". The file did not appear in the download directory where it should have. I canceled the download and retried from the search result. This time it instantly went from "Queued" to "Disk Problem" and 0 to 100%, without any downloading. Several further attempts produced identical results.

What could cause this? There is plenty of free disk space on the filesystem with the download directory -- 2GB give or take a few meg, so it's not a disk full error, or if it is, it's spurious.

Well, here's two longstanding ones that are still unfixed in the 4.9.1 beta...

#1 -- Files with the "File Corrupt" or "Waiting in Line" status seem to stop other files from downloading. If I have a corrupt file I haven't removed and four files waiting in line, and have the default five download slots, nothing will download -- everything will stay queued. Only "connecting..." and "downloading" items should count towards those slots.

#2 -- Typing underscores into the search box produces a beep instead of inserting an underscore. Given how common underscores are in filenames, and therefore how useful they can be in narrowing a search for specific files, this is a serious problem. The search box should accept any character that's legal in filenames -- on any filesystem. So, just about any printable character whatever.

Also, searching still makes the GUI freeze for several seconds. It has done since version 3.something. If it's the first search in a while. Sometimes if you launch several searches, the GUI freezes only after you hit enter for the first one.

Sometimes 4.9.1 beta gets stuck "connecting" -- the connection quality goes all red and stays that way. Looking at the connections tab you see it trying to make connections, but it never actually succeeds. And telling LW to disconnect and then to try connecting again doesn't fix it. It seems to require restarting LW to get it to connect to ultrapeers again.

Is it me, or are requeries a lot less effective at locating files in the beta?

Requery (over time!) about 400 files in 4.8.1, get maybe 10 of them. Same in 4.9.1 you're lucky to get even 1.

If you're looking for long-standing bugs still not fixed in the beta, how about this one -- the number in a search tab that counts up is still much higher than the actual number of items. I think it's counting every separate source for an item, instead of just every distinct item. It can still rapidly rise to 40 or even 50, and when you look at the tab in excitement all you see is

i.e. just that f*@!ing spammer...

Let see, I know this has been brought up but I need to post it too. I have several d/l's in progress with LimeWire Pro 4.8.1 when I converted to the LimeWire BETA. My d/l's were picked up by the BETA and continued to 100% where they died. They did not transfer to library after doddling in the bin for several hours. I shut LimeWire down and restarted the computer, then restarted LimeWire. A popup came onscreen saying the previous lownloads could not be restarted and poof * they were gone...all of them...completed....inprogress..all....gone.

Is it possible the BETA has a confusional migraine that will not relate to the 4.8.1 program and that others may have had the same problem with the same circumstances.

The BETA seems to be running fine now. I restarted all my lost d/l's..big deal what do I want for free....and am seeing better speeds than ever before.

The team has outsurpassed itself in bringing us a better product and I do want to thank you and congratulate all the boys and girls involved in the effort to enhance P2P sharing. Pat on the back all around.
