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.

Question Ultrapeer behaviour

I noticed that when I am a leaf i quickly connect to an ultrapeer and everything seems great (except some searches return little or no results). I also notice that when I am an Ultrapeer I quickly have leafs connecting to me, but connecting to another ultrapeer seems to be a slow and painfull process. I usually have about 7 leafs connected for about 5 mins before I end up connecting to another ultrapeer. I think this is why the searches for leafs have little or no results returned. The ultrapeers are not connecting to each other quick enough. I think it would be best if I did NOT have ANY leafs connected to me before I am connected to another Ultrapeer. Just a thought I guess. Anyone else experience this sort of behaviour?.....(Maybe I just consumed too much alcohol tonight)

Yeah, I can confirm this behaviour.. Ultrapeer to ultrapeer connections are very rare...

When I forced myself to become an ultrapeer I was connecting to other ultrapeers with 20+ other ultrapeers inter-connected to them. I did have snapshots of an Ultrapeer with 300+ ultrapeers connected to him. I also had about 50+ Leaf nodes. But I was consuming too much bandwidth so I just switched back to becoming a Leaf. I think the problem with Ultrapeers now is they're not mainstream yet. You still have to realize LimeWire is the only client at the moment that has implemented the Ultrapeer technology. So whichs mean only like 5% (AT THE MOST) are either an ultrapeer or leaf even though ultrapeers do connected to 0.4 clients. But since the public release of 2.0 I'm starting to see more Ultrapeers with 2 or more other ultrapeers inter-connected to each. It'll just take time before ultrapeers will become in full effect on gnutella. I beleive BearShare is going to implement the Ultrapeer technology really soon so that will also help the situation out.

That is something I have NEVER seen. It's also weird that it's SO EASY to connect to an Ultrapeer as a leaf, yet SO DIFFICULT to connect to an Ultrapeer as another Ultrapeer. Logic dictates that something is not right. Also, from what I understand, you can't tell how many Ultrapeers a particular Ultrapeer is connected to because the Hosts value does not mean Ultrapeers.

Chris said they're working on the problem. Something about the TTL with leaves and ultrapeers. But as far as the number in the Hosts column when you're connected to an Ultrapeer, Adam says he thinks it is how many ultrapeers that are inter-connected to that ultrapeer. For some reason he wasnt 100% sure. I have a snapshot of me in leaf mode connected to an ultrapeer with 13 of other ultrapeers inter-connected to him.

you can see the date and time...

I also forgot to mention you can clearly see in the stats that it says 14 hosts, meaning, its counting the ultrapeer you're connected to and the other 13. As far as the horizon, I think its giving it for the ultrapeer you're connected to and of course the other 13. When I say horizon, I'm not talking about its also calculating all the Leaves that are connected to each individual ultrapeer as if it was one big sum. Its as if you were connected to 14 other hosts in "normal" mode as without being a leaf or ultrapeer.

I just connected about 10 minutes and I'm already connected to 29 other ultrapeers in my horizon. I'm starting to notice since the beta release of 1.9 (thats when ultrapeers were introduced) every week I connect to an ultrapeer that is connected to more ultrapeers then the previous week? The reason is b/c more ultrapeers are being introduced into the network. Its only been 2 weeks since the public release of ultrapeers (2.0.x). You must also remember what I said about LimeWire being the only client at the moment that has ultrapeer implementation in my earlier post on this thread. But as time passes we will see more and more ultrapeers inter-connected to each other and Gnutella becoming the ultimate P2P network to exist :]
