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.

Lightbulb Length and Quality

I'm a recent convert to LimeWire Pro from the fiasco that is Morpheus and the spy-scam that is Grokster - but there are two features I've been looking for that don't seem to exist on LimeWire.

1) On those other services, you can tell the recording quality of audio files by looking at whether a file is, say, 96 or 128 or 256. The higher that number, the larger the file, but also the better the quality. Is there any way to find this info using LimeWire, or can it be programmed in as an option? When I download something from LimeWire and then open it up in Grokster, all that info is there.

2) Track length. Again, the info is there when I open a file from LimeWire in Grokster. This is important, because I want to know what version of a song I'm getting, to tell whether I'm getting the original. Is there any way to find this info before a download?

These are the two features that I would love to see. Otherwise, the interface is very neat, and the experience is a welcome relief from those other programs!

Hello,

You'll be pleased to find that the latest version of LimeWire already supports these features! When you search for an audio file, the bitrate column will display the bitrate. Just click on the column heading to sort the results by bitrate. You will also find that if you right click those column headings, you can choose from a wide variety of criteria with which to sort your results.

Enjoy!
Avi

I saw the bitrate column after I'd played around with LimeWire for a while - perhaps the sixth song I searched for - nothing obscure, I was trying out my searches on standard stuff like the Beatles - had a few returns that listed "Bitrate". However, the great majority don't seem to list bitrate, unlike on the other services. Since the info is embedded in most of the files (for example, S n G's "S of S" had no info in the bitrate column when I downloaded it from LimeWire, but told me the bitrate in the "Quality" column when I transfered it and opened it in Grokster), it seems that somehow LimeWire isn't presenting all of the useful info that is available.

And the length of the track is nowhere to be found on LimeWire, right?

No specific names which may suggest infringement of copyright, please.
Any specific file names are not important in regards to your question.
thanks

The length as well as other useful information can be displayed by rightclicking the column headers. Also, please leftclick the bitrate column header and you will be able to sort all the files with "embedded" bitrate to the top.

Additionally, if you select the "Audio" choice while doing a search, and check "More Search Options", you can even enter search criteria depending on these factors you have mentioned.

I will also mention this to the developers. We've had a few requests more advanced search criteria.

Hope that helps!
Avi

Thanks - it's good to learn about the length feature! However, now that I can see where the length info ought to be, I see that for some reason LimeWire seems to not find length info for most of the files that are distributed with that data available.

While I can't say for sure, I would venture LimeWire can only display the data it's supplied by the host. If there's no bit rate or length (or any of the other fields), it's most likely because the client hosting that file didn't provide that info in the search return.

OK, now it's 3 YEARS from the time when this thread was created.

But still ... (4.4.5)

- length is in SECONDS, making it a huge pain to always re-calculate the time by hand to find out the length of a track
Why isn't this fixed after 3 years when this feature was requested?!

- it seems that the length (and other) column(s) are always *individual* for every search tab.
That is, if you have 10 search tabs, you will have to enable the length column 10 time, which is a pain in the neck.

No way yet to set the columns I always want by DEFAULT?!

Apart from those annoyances, LimeWire is great!

Nevermind, problem found why length had to be readjusted all the time. (3rd party app)

OK, yet "length in timecode" request still applies.
