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 how I search for hard to find stuff

I have found I have the best luck using the all file types tab.... what I will do is enter a search something like: *sublime*badfish*.mp3
or: *rolling*stones*.mp3

You get the idea... it works great for me.
also use the "get more results" as many times as necessary, and sometimes it takes alot of times.

@ nosleepno

Just curious, but what is your success rate for downloads?

I just tried that Rolling Stones thing and got what is probably 2000 fake files and 3 legit ones. 2003 results. Tried some samples and not a single one downloaded. BTW I normally just close the search, if the results go over 750 in the initial search.

Default sucess rate

It's actually pretty good... the rolling stones thing was just an example.. you want to be more specific... basically just look at the way most mp3's are named, and put the name of the song you want.... using the * as variables. For example I just searched for *cake*ruby*.mp3 for the song by Cake called "ruby sees all", I got 148 results, without using the get more results thing. about half of them were obviously fake, didn't even have the keywords in them, not mp3's, etc...
The first good one I tried downloaded in 45 seconds, and was the correct file...
That is pretty typical of just about ANY song I have searched for. ANy movie also...
I don't know if it makes a difference, but I purchased Limewire Pro... actually I know it makes a difference, cause the pro works WAY better than the regular one, for me at least.... thanks, to the people that wrote this software

Well I agree with you completely about PRO being better

I tried with other stuff as well and got more junk than searching under audio

You do know that limewire does not recognise * as anything right?

try cake ruby under audio. Add .wma to the keywordfilter first

Did a little test :wink:

Attachment 2964

1: Audio. All fake

2: All Files. All fake

3: All Files. 2 legit

4: Audio. 10 Legit including a 320 kbps result

Like I said in the guide. Exhaust all possibilities

I still kinda proved your point though since I had to change the keywords

I discovered one day that if you type in the artist and album name only you get much better results when searching for something you're having particular spam probs with. Or even just the album. I've been searching before and had hundreds of spam results, downloaded about ten different ones and all were spam. I typed just the album name and only a few results came up but they were all good.

Obvious problem is it only works if the song is already on an album!
