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.

Default BETA 4.9.20 Bug Report

This is either a Bug report for 4.9.20 BETA or just some variables.

1. Double clicking .avi, .mov or divx files no longer activates the default movie viewer as it did in the past. Now the player/viewer must be activated and the file found.

2. Clicking "Revert to Default" in the Options window now reverts A L L setting to DEFAULTING wiping out ALL library preferences, connection speed, etc. I mean they are ALL changed.

3. You can no longer use the "Ctrl" function to load multiple files.

But tonight we'll see. 4.9.19 was a great improvement. Looks better a ll the time. Good job.

OOpps!! Spoke too soon. Did you rewrite the "SEARCH" function?? Whereas, before, I was able to perform 8 searches on various .avi files and get hundreds of returns for avi's in addition to mp3, .zip, .ISO. .bin, .txt and all the others. Now I have a better chance of finding Bin Laden than I do of finding .avi's. My returns for .avi's has been cut from hundreds to maybe a dozen or so.

Now I checked to see what others are running to d/l form me and most are running 4.8.1 or older in addition to the other Gnutella programs.

I am running 4.9.20 and now even my downloads have dropped to 4 to 6 at 11 kb/s if Im kicking butt.

Whatever you changed in this area............

under osx, I can bitzi just fine as I can launch movies in latest beta.

Deacon: 4.9.20 just updates the GUI not the CORE so I doubt speeds and searches should be changed compared to 4.2.19. Can it be only because you are now UP and were then a leaf? (Leaves are known to get better results than UPs).

I can no longer access this forum from the tools in LimeWire.

Who messed up my 4.9.19. It seemed a lot better than this. It seemed to all work.

I can no longer access the forum from the tools in LW also.

Also in LW view>show/hide>monitor ------ if you hide the monitor tab then show it again ---- it clears the the autocomplete text fields. It also resets the search tab --- select search type: to all types

The "You do not appear to have an active connection blah, blah blah I S B A C K !!!!
The firewall is showing again in my LimeWire and there is not a thing more I can do for it.

Everything more or less was hunkey dory in 4.9.19 but on this somone pushed the wrong button or turned the wrong knob.


Bitzi don't work!!

seems like a windows thing: I can access forums and bitzi just fine on osx, in fact those are linked since they all call a browser window with a specific address This would mean that you can't access FAQ and and Using LW too, right? Are you able in library to do on a file a Lookup File With Bitzi and a Show Magnet Details? Are you using Firefox or IE as default broswer?

I'm gonna test that... on my xp boxen

Default Given that you're working...

Given that you've worked on the tray icon wouldn't it be good if you could work on this submitted bug as well while you're at it. I think it deserves attention: .
