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 Thanks


I'm doing fine. Thanks for asking. I'm glad to hear Sparky will be used in later phases of the Gnutella evolution. The diagrams were especially helpful in visualizing the concept. When do you expect to see this supernode/client scheme to be realized?

Again, thanks for your reply.

I had a SuperNode running when I left the office on Friday - let's see if it is stable and still running after the weekend...

I found that the LimeWire installer may need to download additional components of the InstallShield system while preparing the installation - this may depend on the operating system you are running. If it is not able to download the proper components, and therefore is unable to complete the InstallShield system, then it most probably won't be able to complete the installation of LimeWire, too.

Unhappy REPLT TO LIMEWIRE: attention Adam

Hi Adam,

I took your advice and restarted the limewire "supernode" client but still no luck.
The auto connect hosts just dont respond for some reason. It doesnt even appear to try and connect.
Its as if it forgets to. With Limewire 1.8 it autoconnects just fine. I had this same problem with "Sparky".
If I try to change the port via the options menu Limewire will just hang.
Im really eager to test out this beta. Sice I run Limewire 24/7 and am running off a cable modem I might have the resources to be a supernode.

Thanx again,
Mark P

It was a long time ago that FreePeers (BearShare) created something called Defender (Before Defender was Reflector, by Clip 2). Defender too used the client/server model, where these "supernodes" handled most of the traffic, allowing low bandwidth users to connect to the supernodes and chat, search, save bandwidth, etc.

But a long time ago, expecting to implement the supernode/client model was a bit unrealistic.

Using Linux I encountered a little bug. When the download of a file is complete, it remains in the download-list although I checked the 'remove completed downloads' option. Moreover, the client tells me it is still downloading the file at 0k/s although the download has reached a 100% and the downloaded file has already been moved to the shared-folder.

Thanks for reporting this Linux errror. We'll have a look at it as soon as possible. If you're a programmer, you could also take a look at the source at =). We'll fix it though, thanks!

I am not really sure why Vinnie never released Defender -- we have never really spoken with him about it at great length. The LimeWire "superpeers" are a similar concept with some slight changes here and there.

We expect to release our superpeer implementation quite soon -- sometime in the next month or so, if not sooner.

We didn't release it for a couple of reasons:

1) Proprietary implementation = bad

2) Inadequate discovery method for servers (relying on broadcast queries)

3) Uploading the entire index of files was expensive for modem users, and required a lot of extra work when the local file indexes changed (QRP solves this better, both technically and legally)

I think the LimeWire supernode implementation solves all of these problems and that's where we are going.
