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 LimeWire 2.0 beta

LimeWire 2.0 beta is finally here. This version includes all of the important important features of the earlier betas such as:

<li>The introduction of UltraPeers to the network, a feature that will save everyone's bandwidth for downloading files and that makes the Gnutella network far more scalable than ever before.
<li>Swarm downloads, or the downloading of a single file from multiple hosts to speed up your download and maximize your bandwidth.
<li>The option to leave LimeWire running until all of your current uploads and downloads are complete, at which point it will automatically close.
<li>Dynamic allocation of upload slots to make as many files available to the network as possible.
<li>Much more accessible chat functionality, allowing you to communicate with other users on the network (which you can also disable).
<li>Many minor user interface changes to make LimeWire easier than ever to use.

The new beta includes several additional improvements, such as:

<li>More robust communication of UltraPeers so that you can immediately reconnect to another UltraPeer if you lose your UltraPeer connection.
<li>The search button is now disabled when you are not connected to the network, so all searches should return rich results.

Let us know if anyone experiences problems or has suggestions. As always, thanks to everyone for their support and for their helpful criticisms.

Yeah, we're getting a little crazy with the betas over here =). This one's getting close to the final release, though. You can get the tgz at:

As usual, just ignore the references to "linux" in the path.

Thumbs up Supernode population is on the rise

Its not dramatic but my connectivity to supernodes has gone up..I m now maxing up to 25-30 hosts through one superpeer. This is a good sign of things to come...Im assuming things will really start to take off in the next few months as it gets more distributed...Cant wait to see the whole network connected...I wonder how long that may take .....

Gnutella is getting a serious makeover!

Good Job Limewire team!

Oh BTW...the ads are nice...It makes the client more interesting to look at

Glad you guys like the new version so far -- I'm especially glad that you're seeing some nice, high connectivity with the UltraPeers, sweeppicker. Yeah, hopefully this will only increase when this is officially released. It looks like it's going to be spotlighted on for all platforms, so that should give it a nice boost.

Let us know if anyone has any problems with it.

Default Error 1610

I have just tried to install 2.0.2 but am unable to complete the installation. I have JRE 1.3.1-02 installed on my computer. I get an error message as follows:

Error 1610. The configuration for this product is corrupt. Contact your support personnel.

I have a feeling that I will have to delete some entries from my registry. I was previously running version 1.7 but could not get it to respond. In "Add/Remove Programs", there was no reference to LimeWire. The uninstall application would not work. Then, through Explorer I removed the Limewire files. Also, I removed all references to Limewire in the registry. Probably, there are other entries in the registry that cannot be located by running Limewire under "Find".

Thanks for assistance.

Can anyone tell me or help me out as to why Limewire 2.0 flickers so badly and seems to stutter when switching back and forth between windows and even tabs on the interface. Running OS X 10.1.2 loads of Ram....Is there anything I can do to prevent this, did not have this issue while using 1.8.
