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 XP and 2000 users READ THIS !

For those of you who don't allready know the basic/beta versions
are purposely designed to dissapear of your screen or worst case scenario cause a blue screen of death causing a kernel fault and forcing you to restart.

These symptoms are well documented and Limewire has been fully blasted for they're incompetant and misleading and just plain Nasty actions !

Mind you there is hope if you do spend the $8.50 or find a version
of 2.3.2 pro floating around.

These problems will magicly dissapear ! As this version actually works full stable on 2000 i haven't tested XP yet but so far so good its almost been 24 hours now and the above mentioned version has sat rock steady downloading perfectly.

YES once again another example of a struggling software company trying to make it into the big league by copying the dishonest tricks of they're bigger counterparts.

Truelly disgusting !!! i'll be letting Cnet know to take the
beta versions of the software down of the public shareware downloads site as it is FALSE and misleading to tell users that
the software works on 2000 and XP when it clearly doesn't and has purposelly built bugs in it.

Which force you to buy the full version thankfully when you do you get the real maccoy BUT this is not good trade practise
and i'll be instigating some sort of legal action if possible !

Thankyou limewire for being another bad boy bubby microsoft
and you shall be treated as such from now on.

Default lol

sure. very smart tactic. crash user's computer so get angry and buy pro version? did you come up with this while sitting on a can constapating?

regular non-pro version works perfectly fine on both of my machines. one xp, one win2k. had limewire running for over 24hours. neither of my machines EVER bluescreened.

quit spreading lies and find something productive to do.

i cant read java and have never looked at limewire's source but from what you say my first guess would be that something is wrong with the spyware-crap on your PC
you should try AdAware

Default what a poophead

Don't listen to that little dippoop. I leave LimeWire 2.3.1 AdSupported running ALL THE TIME on WinXP. I have NEVER seen a crash, BSOD or anything else like that.
If some little dweeb whines about crashes and other stuff on WinXP, its because he's buying generic poop hardware and using ancient drivers and never installs a patch in his life on his 233Mhz MMX 64MB EDO Via MVP3 system.

bobomon is flying high

Seems that Limewire is also responsible for Smallpox. - I have used both the free and pro versions on three machines (87,2k,2k)for over a year and heve never had a BSOD... nor have I had any problems that I would/could attribute to Limewire....

Default Nothing better to do

I have used previous versions and now 2.4.1 with windows Xp and it works fine. I am sure if this wanna be somebody sent a message to Cnet ---Cnet would check it our first before they did anything. Thats even if they believe such dribble like that.
