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.

Exclamation Ogg support

I would like to request support for Ogg Vorbis files in Limewire. It's great that Limewire is now Open Source and its a great app. I was rather surprised, given the importance of open protocols which Limewire describes on its website, and the opensource/cross-platform nature of the code, that Ogg was not even supported in the "audio file" search. A built in player would be nice, too, but I would at least have expected an audio file search for 'Britney Spears' to have turned up at least one ogg.

Unencumbered audio formats are as important as unencumbered p2p protocols IMO.

Ogg doesn't stand a chance if the servents don't support it. All my (400+) shared audio files are ogg. My servent is quiet most of the time. Put in a few mp3's and the clients show up like a school of piranha!

In addition, ogg support could help network performance, at least to some degree, since ogg's tend to be higher in quality for the same bitrate then mp3s.

Post get the word out

the beauty of limewire is that it supports anything you tell it to ... tools > options > sharing ... at the bottom is a place to enter extions.... I've just entered ogg to see what that is all about .... look foreword to downloading a few from ya.

but what do you play an ogg file in?

Thanks for the reply. However, it's not the sharing, but the *searching* that concerns me. You can share any kind of file you want. But when searching for "audio" files, ogg results are not returned. If you search for "Any Type", oggs are, of course included. Its certainly understandable that the Limewire developers started with the most popular format, encumbered by patents as it may be. However, support for a truly open format (ogg) seems like a next logical step.

Sorry. I forgot to answer your question. Under a Unix or Unix like OS, xmms is good. ogg123 is a good command line player. Under Windows, the latest version of Winamp handles ogg. Under MacOS, I'm not sure.

Default .ogg Vorbis Players and Rippers

You can use your Windows Media Player for .ogg files-

Download - NimoCodecPack v5.0 build 7 - This will install many, many codecs for you to use with a large variety of media players. ( Be sure to say 'yes' to installing a short-cut in your Start Programs. )

You will find an excellent ripping tool in CDex v1.50 beta 4 or CDex v1.40.

FreeAmp v2.1.1 is available for Linux and Windows.
The only player that tries to come close to Winamp in sound.

( And don't forget Monkey's Audio .ape format - Very good. Latest is Monkey's Audio v3.96 )

I also think that .ogg should be included in the audio search because it needs a chance to grow and is also an open source project like Lime Wire, so it should really support it.

Default Audio select by file type


Krieger88 said:
LimeWire will be displaying ogg files, when it encounters any.

For me the only ogg files Limewire has encountered were when searching for "Any Type" by filename,
NOT when searching for "Audio".

I suggest the audio search should include a select box for
file type mp3,ogg,whatever

LimeWire will display any ogg files it finds when performing a meta-search for "audio" files.
