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.

Beta versions are versions that are being tested they have fixes for previous issues and new features, But havent been thouroughly tested yet for problems that may arrise. The regular release versions are tested versions that have been somewhat proven to work on most sysetms. If you are not familiar with LimeWire I do nor recomend that you run a beta version becaus there may be problems that no one knows the answers to yet.

I currently have 4.9.11 beta because as far as I know the newest regular pro version is 4.8.1. On the basic, I noticed there is 4.9.11 beta and 4.9.11 regular. My bookmarked pro download page will only show 4.8.1 as the current version unless I click on the "beta available" icon. Then it shows 4.9.11 as the current beta. Is this all correct or is there a more current regular version of pro. And what is the dif between the basic 4.9.11 regular and 4.9.11 beta? If they are the same version ,what's different?

Question BETA

By the way the reason I got the beta version even though I am inexperienced is because the 4.8.1 pro I was using kept getting errors and shutting down. It would also keep dropping connections after 10 - 30 seconds for each connection. Then finally it would say that I had no internet connection.

The new beta may and may not fix your problem. It sounds like a Java isue to me but I dont know for shure. If you could read the thread below there is alot of good information in it. And the more info you can provide when writeing a thread the better the chances of solving the problem. IE

O/S Windows 98/2000/XP
CPU P43.0/AMD 3200+
Memory 256/512
LimeWire Verson 4.8.1/4.9.11
Java Version 1.4.*/1.5.*
connection Type Dial up/Cable
Firewall Type Norton/Windows
Router make & model
any error messages and a good description of what is happening you have a good start there and it appears that you are trying to figure out the problem yourself if you need any more help try using above sugistions and I or someone else will help if we can.

Talking BETA

Thank you very much for your help and suggestions. I actually don't need help with any problems anymore though. Since I started using 4.9.11 beta, I've had no problems. I am still waiting for answers from the post I had made three posts ago from three posts ago, that would be awesome.
