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 2.2.0 beta Released!

LimeWire 2.2.0 beta is has just been posted to the LimeWire web site at

This version includes a number of new features and fixes, including:

<li> Elegant metadata display. No more "change view" button; you just turn columns on and off. You can also view the metadata for a file if its available simply by mousing over that search result.
<li> Automatic requering. When a download fails, a new search for that same file is automatically launched, and the download is automatically attempted again.
<li> Menus appear in Mac menu bar on OS X, with "Quit," "About LimeWire...," and "Preferences..." options meeting the OS X look and feel guidelines.
<li> Reduced number of inter-ultrapeer connections to conserve bandwidth for UltraPeers.
<li> Added loading information to splash screen.
<li> Splash screen had a new edgy, "extreme sports" kind of look instead of the former "file sharing for Marth Stewart lovers" feel -- our shameless attempt to appeal to the rising generation.

Other changes that will remain largely invisible to most users include:

<li> Dynamically sized "route tables" -- generally bigger for ultrapeers, smaller for leaves. Performance increases in many situations, though slightly worse in others. Overall, this will bring an excellent improvement to the network.
<li> Eliminated "TTL boost" between leaves and ultrapeers to reduce bandwidth consumption for messaging, leaving more bandwidth for downloading files.
<li> Connection authentication support.
<li> HTTP 1.1 upload support.
<li> URL decoding support on uploads.
<li> Send bitrates for all audio, even if missing ID3 tags.
<li> Uses TTL of 1 for "watchdog" pings.
<li> Bugfix: uploads handle "Range" requests properly.
<li> Bugfix: "N'th child of root bug" from repeating search is fixed.
<li> Bugfix: "ConcurrentModificationException" from XML/QRP is fixed.
<li> Bugfix: "FileNotFoundException" for "ads.props" is fixed.

We hope everyone likes the new version. You will also notice that the free version of LimeWire no longer bundles Gator.<p>

Talking Thankx LW...gotta a question

Thanx again for your hardwork and awesome client. However, I have one question that remains unanswered. How come my user connections usually tops out at around 3000 users. Is this due to a limitation in the ultrapeer technology or just due to the restructuring of the network? I ve noticed Fasttrack s superpeer technology has allowed for connections of around 500,000 users. Do u guys have the ame prospects for ultrapeer technology? Thanx again. BTW...the new metadate update is awesome! Perhaps u could incorporate CDDB metadata retrieval in the future.

very nice changes, but i don't really like the new splash screen, any chance of a different one (with the loading progress text)?

The metadata and requerying is great.

Default Number of User Count

The number of users (also called horizon statistics or number of hosts) can not and has not been accurate for a long time. There are many more users than these numbers would lead you to believe. This is all based on the amount of "pong" traffic and LimeWire and BearShare have been restricting pong traffic for a long time now because it wasted bandwidth. There are 50 to 75 leaf users connected to each UltraPeer and you do not get pongs from them so whatever number you see could be off by a factor of * 50 or more. If you look at the Connection tab, this is why we put ? in the host column. It might be fair to say multiply the statistics view number by 50.

The same is true of the Gnutella statistics on We don't crawl leaf nodes (although I believe we started indicating them again with this release) so those numbers also undercount the network. One of the items on our todo list is to report better network statistics but it comes second after better overall functionality.

adam, is there any chance you implement HUGE in the near future?

HUGE is very high on our list of priorities, and will be one of the next big features in LimeWire. I can't tell you precisely when it will be implemented but it shouldn't be too long.

On the splash screen, I've found that changes such as this often take a little while to get used to.

Whats up everyone!? Sorry that I've been away for a while. It looks like its been slow anyways. So I guess I havnt missed anything. I feel really bad that I didnt send in my resume for the LimeWire Customer Support Intern. But I'm already do busy as it is so I dont think I would of been able to do my best work. Hopefully things will start picking up here, hence the upcoming new release of LimeWire. Anyways 2.2.0 looks great, I actually like the new splash screen. Its brighter and more colorful. As always LimeWire kicks ***!

I am wondering if you could change the the right click button in the OS X version to control-click instead of apple-click because that is what Apple has set as the right click and it would make it alot easier on use with 2 buttoned mice that can't right click in LimeWire.

Default To the LimeWire developers


I know I should post this problem in the downoad\upload problems forum, but nobody cares.

Many users have a problem with resuming downloads, for more info go to:

(it's two pages)

and please at least reply. It's really annoying.

Thank you for your attention.
