Moderators

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.

Angry Same old same old

Thanks for your reply. Call me thick but can l just recount the problem.
Until recently all downloaded music went into my "My Music" file on the pc and from there l could do as l wished with it. After l downloaded a recent update all downloads went into a file called "Individually Shared Files" with none of these downloads going into my "My Music" file. I soon realised the only way to play these downloads was to be connected to LW. After reporting this to LW or Gnutela, whatever that is, and messing about with settings, all my downloads now go into both the My Music and Individually Shared Files file, however, l still can't drag the original 50 or so that only went into the Individually Shared Files into the My Music file... hope you are following this. I also don't see any reference to an itunes file on my pc or on the LW page???

For fast & easy access, go to your LW Library window, select Saved Files folder or Shared folder & press the Explore button. Sample image here: Using Library Explore button to access downld folder (click on link) & the folder will open up for you.

I saw someone else have a problem and it was due to their folder permissions. Check the folder permissions and make sure you have "FULL" permissions for both the LW download folder AND the iTunes Music Folder.

The individually shared file folder listed in your LW Library is a psuedo folder, it doesn't actually exist on your computer.

People can name their LW download folder whatever they wish or choose a particular location. It sounds like you have chosen the title or location of My Music folder which is found in your personal account folder. That's fine. I am a little mystified however about the newest LW releases as some changes have been made & I haven't tried them out (I use a mac.) I need to however to test these things out, since I have installed XP on this new mac computer.

I'd be curious to see a full listing of your set up on your pc. It's not easy to understand exactly how you have iTunes and LW set up.

Go to iTunes, Edit menu -> Preferences -> Advanced & see what your iTunes importing location is. Is it your My Music folder location?
Also, do you have the option clicked to Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to Library?

When iTunes is open, do you see a LW playlist in there on the left side?

Remember "Folder" is like a box, it can contain files (or documents). Try not to confuse the term "file" with "folder".

Default No iTunes

As l said earlier LOTR l cannot see any reference to iTunes in my LW or PC files. Like Cutirpie666 this problem only just started and has been perfect ever since l've been with LW. Should l wipe LW from my pc and reload it??? The funny thing is l don't now have the problem but l would just like to transfer downloaded music in the ISF folder into my My Music file.

Thanks Cutiepie. I reckon someone at LW knows more about this than they are letting on and so l have also come to the conclusion l must uninstall LW and reinstall it. Sadly, l have loads of stuff that went into the ISF folder but l get these will be lost with the uninstall and have to be sourced again. Nice talking with you. M

erm .. why not find the same files in your download folder & open up that folder & do it from there. Dragging from the LW Library window to iTunes does not always work.

For fast & easy access, go to your LW Library window, select Saved Files folder & press the Explore button. Sample image here: Using Library Explore button to access downld folder (click on link) & the folder will open up for you. The Explore button should work on most if not all folders listed in the Library window.

I recommend having a close look at this post http://www.gnutellaforums.com/133930-post8.html

Hi All!
I'm new to Limewire, and P2P sharing.
I've downloaded a few songs, but can't seem to play them on:
Lw's built in player
iTunes
WM Player

WM Player opens, then IE opens up looking to download a PLAY_MP3. exe file.
The website it tries to locate is www.fastmp3player.com.

I downloaded the music files as Mp3's, and tried to drag them from the LW folder
which resides in "my documents".

Using an IBM T42 Thinkpad, with windows XP.
Latest WMP, and iTunes loaded.
LW- 4.18.3, Java 1.5.0_04.

also, we're on limited bandwith here in South Africa, so how much BW is LW
using, even while not launched??

All, help appreciated.

Regds

Network being spammed with viruses pretending to be mp3's.

Make sure the mp3's you download show a bit rate. Else they will most likely be viruses.





LW should not use any bandwidth whilst not open.
