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.

Lightbulb Just a Thought from an Old Man!

(My apologies to the moderators, I met to start a new thread) I didn't know where to put this thread, so I figured this was as good a place as any. I have used LimeWire for the past several months and overall, am quite pleased. I am not a computer "guru", just an old man that is a bit cautious at times who enjoys the cyberworld. I currently still use the 1.7c version, so I have not encountered any of the problems being encountered by users of more recent versions.

Usually, a "silent" reader of forums (they are great) one can learn alot before they jump into something they might otherwise regret, as I make a habit of doing. Others mightlearn from also doing this first.

I have read the comments, both positive and negative, the "flaming" (childish behavior)
and the constructive critisms.

Giving credit where it is due, I commend the LimeWire developers on their efforts and also
to the "independents" who are trying their best to make the Gnutella network and
LimeWire a viable resource for users.

Though I try my best not to judge anyone, I will say this to the developers of LimeWire, I
for one understand your revenue dilemma, however, adding spyware and/or other malicious
code (with or without your knowledge) can only raise doubts to your intentions and
trustworthyness. In other words a piece of software is only as good as the people who are
willing to use and are satisfied with it, no matter if it is freeware or not. Disclaimers are
all well and good, however, these do not in any way protect a vender from legal
ramifications if their actions are thought to be or are deemed illegal. (No, and I am not a
lawyer just try to keep up with decisions concerning "Cyber Crime".) LimeWire is a good
thing, just want to point out that a good thing can be taken to far and then it becomes
something bad.

To the others, your efforts are appreciated in using the open source code to take the
"negative" aspects out of the program. I for one despise any invasion into my privacy,
whether it be for ad promotional purposes or whatever. People or companies that use this
technology are nothing more than leeches upon society. I have no problem with free
interprise and commerce, until it infringes upon my rights as a consumer. (Sorry, I did say
I try not to judge anyone, however, in this case most of these folks have already shown
that their intentions are not always honorable in nature) You deal with these people, you
take your chances, and by saying, "We were not aware...." is not a legitimate excuse. You
are, and always will be, responsible for your actions.

In my opinion LimeWire has great potential. It does have its advantages and
disadvantages, as do the other P2P programs. (Read the other forums regarding these, if
you have doubt) I only hope that the current problems will be worked out. I remember
reading one thread in reference the developers and moderators working together to help
solve these problems (seeing that a few of the moderators seem to be kind of a "stop
gap" for passing along suggestions from the users). This thread made comment that this
has met with little or no success. Thats sad!

The Gnutella network is here to stay (sorry, RIAA), I just hope that LimeWire has a long
and prosperous future too. This old man will get down off of his soap box now........ :-)
