Moderators

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.

I was using gnut and other clients (I don't remember their names, - it was some dead projects for gtk but it was not gtk-gnutella) before I even noticed their was any such thing as Limewire or Bearshare. So there probably would be a gnutella without Bearshare or Limewire although I doubt the network would have grown that fast.

As for ads - people, probably using ICQ, GoZilla or surfing web sites with banners shouldn't even start to complain about ads bundled with LimeWire (at least the information gathered by spyware is not shared with governmental agencies, is it?).

Falco used to think that Gnutellas control was in his grasp,to me he is worse than the leeches of the RIAA,he is more dangerous than companies like the RIAA could ever be,at least the RIAA doesn't pretend to be your friend.
My advice?give Limewire the benefit of the doubt,they are used to being the darlings of Gnutella,if they are so confident of their product,let them sell their product in the real world without the added crap that goes with it,if they as a buisness decide that they can no longer try to sell to end users a buisness that is primarily used to download copyrighted material,then so be it.
As for Bearshare.....

> the network would have grown that fast

Dude, you are ignoring reality. Limewire is used by only a few percentage of users, Bearshare has been used by a high amount of users in the past, but now isn't state of the art (corrupted resume, slow downloads). As a matter of fact a lot of developers argue and fight against each other (Bearshare and Limewire in the past, Falco against all), but do not further develop Gnutella... all this is slowing down and throwing back gnutella development for months!
I'm glad that a software like Xolox and Gnotella came up and showed what Gnutella could be and made an end of pro/contra MP3 metadata shown in Gnutella. The first thing Vinnie does was attacking any yelling to everyone that is not Bearshare, also the nobel closed grouped "the_GDF" did not see or learn a lesson from Xolox, Gnotella or Fastrack advantages. I appreciate Limewire's reseatch, but I have never seen the Limewire developer discussing with other interested users.

Gnutella is an open protocol, most gnutella developers are closed minded.

Hi Vinnie!

I am bearsharer, I can live with your add-ins because the installation is optional...

But in Limewire the spytools will be installed in both cases...
if I want so or not...

And that is a big difference for me!

Ad-aware discovers both add-ins (limewire and bearshare), but bearshare is after deinstalling the tools fully operational - Limewire not!

And I have to mention the cydoors! Vinnie you know what cydoors are?

So Vinnie don´t you think there is a difference?

And it is no good PR for no client to install cydoors...

And all developers should think about this...

Paying your bills is one side but truth the other!

Hi twoface!

If you know me!

If you ever read my posts, I mean all and not only one...

I used ad-aware and supported the people deinstalling this garbage...

Yes I am a moderator but I have my own opinion...

I am not Kutulus or one of vinnis knights...

I hate all spyware...

I love bearshare.de and the people around...

and I love Gnutella!

The clients doesn´t interest me anymore because the developers are kidding us...

but I will support all people to deinstall this garbage...

and you think you know who I am?

Mr. unregistered

so long

Morgwen
