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.

Default Error Type -39 ?????????

I have downloaded LW Pro 3.4.1 beta twice and each time I try to install it, I immediately get " Error Type -39 " response from my installer or from the computer.

I have been installing LW for several years now and never had any problems before. I always find all files with LW and even the one in the Prefs folder that has to do with LW and trash them before I try the install. My last LW Pro 3.3.5 installed OK.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, John

Might be a problem with the installer. Just wait a week or so for the next version, that could fix it.

Thanks, Blackbird for the reply. That's kind of what I thought because I have never had any problems with installers before.

Default No Such File????????

I went to Version Tracker and found the download, but when I tried to download it, the new screen said " No such file".

I even went to the Developers Site and when I clicked on the hot link to download it, I also got "No such file". Weard things are happening.??

I will just wait until the LW team come out with the next update. That will not be much longer.

Hi JPM
I just tried the LimeWireMacNoVM.bin and it worked OK from my Pro page.

In case you are still waiting for a clean download . . .

-39 errors for OS 9 , says Google (e.g. http://www.ragesw.com/techsupport.php), are usually because of corrupted downloads.

The solution then is to delete the old download and try again (I usually clear my Safari or Internet Explorer cache first to make sure the download comes from the original source, not the cache).

Cheers

Default MESSAGE TO STEIF

I suppose you could be correct on that -39 issue. I too, am not pro, JUST a reader of what I find on various subjects.

I've got 3 - 4 different error number definitions.

They all say much the same thing. I've I didn't
do the research and publich the app. - then who's to say who is factful or otherwise.

The only reason I get onto this forum is one of two reasons. Either to enlist someone else's expertise or share mine.

Best regards to a fellow canuck

hi graphica--glad to see you helping too.

You're right about the -39 = unexpected end of file, which is often caused by corrupted downloads especially on modem connections. btw, I still find "Apple Error Codes '98" a useful little app for checking error codes, and like you keep it in my OS 9 Utilities folder.

Enjoy the heat wave. We'll be freezing soon enough.
