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 Official LimeWire 4.1 requests thread

Note 1: can some mod make that sticky?
Note 2: This is not already may 18th, but I thought we might begin to discuss about new features already Just be sure to download the latest beta of 3.9.x before making any requests http://www.limewire.com/english/content/beta.shtml

Allons-y!!!
This is the feature request for the LW 4.1 development branch that will end up in the final version of LW 4.2. Contribute to LW advancement!!!

Please make your requests clear, please try the latest version (beta if any) before posting something that might be already included.

Merci beaucoup.

MY feature requests:
1) max simultaneous transfers of the same file option (very important when you share a popular big file, it takes all uploads slots then you can't share anything else)

2) reorganisation of preferences:
a) no more firewall option (rename port option to firewall? IPs should be forced no matter what, like other P2P, this option was confusing users and me, I might add...)
b) the search option (limit, quality and speed) should be eliminated (with recent protocol enhancements it serves nothing)
c) in advanced no more compression option (default proved to be ok)
d) port (rename it firewall) should get out of advanced
e) no more out of band option (default proved to be ok, LW ajusts automatically if host is firewalled)

3) New system of requieries with the 6 first digits of sha1 (more than 2 billions possibilities, à la kazaa), dynamic querying for 1 result by UP BUT a max of TTL=3. ie urn:sha1:RPXYFG The time of the requery should be like it was in LW 2.8.6 (one requery per hour MAXIMUM period, when a file needs more sources) When LW receives a result (with the complete sha1 of 32 digits) it compares the complete sha1 of the two files, if it is the same, the transfer begins... This should allow more transfers with LW unattended and make newbies and pro alike happy

4) a file rating system, you rate the files you download or share in terms of quality, this way fakes and garbage files will be less displayed, this idea is taken from Shareaza.

5) browse other clients in upload window (Bearshare and ACQX support the protocol but LW doesn't try to browse them)

6) proxy browse hosts so we can tell who is really leeching, not who in behind firewall

7) nio technology so LW takes less ram on my old computer...

Ciao

Sam, as we talked recently about a needed killer feature for XYZ, this is IMO one.

--an Edit menu! (and ability to select and copy any displayed text.)

Not to mention the shortcuts for the Menu Items.

great thread et voilà (especially the requery idea)

re the "mailto" button (LIMELINE?)
-- a "mini" LW to handle the magnet. A disposable LimeWire? small enough to be a hotmail attatchment, and just large enough to securely download the magnet and advertise the full LW. I could send my mother a picture without having to talk her through a full LW install or explaining all the files she'd see when she'd accidently hit the what's new button! Goodbye ftp, iDisk, gigabyte googlemail, and attachments!

--a window menu to bring chat, options, stats and the main window to the foreground.

--browse host that would display results with directory structure like in the Library (or have the option to show the directory structure for any search result)

--LIMELINE
Interresting. I don't know if LimeWire can be made small enough to be a hotmail attachment but... One word: WebStart! A slim version of LimeWire hosted at limewire.com which cannot search etc. and regular LimeWire (maybe only for Pro?) clients can create .jnlp files similar to magnet links.

-- java.awt.dnd support for the Library.

Salut, I just wanted to pust more pressure on the automatic find more sources feature, you know rare files don't maintain a download mesh
This feature is standard in other apps and people using LW are expecting it.
In it's defense, the bearshare labs also proved in their tests that the network was more efficient with it on if it doesn't limit search horizons.
So now I'm asking to LW team (everybody too): what do you believe is the most easy and efficient way to implement requieries (not putting too much stress on UPs)?

1) a DHT like hashes system (or a kamdelia one like emule which works great is open source) with some ultraleaves storing hashes (new kind of network topology)

2) hash searches like in my suggestion above (same network topology)

Merci pour le bon travail!

I've made a short test if it's worth to truncate the SHA1 URNs to 6 digits.

The raw string length saving is 81% but with compression is the saving only ~50% compared to a complete and compressed SHA1 URN (or other way around; for only 50% extra you get the real deal with 100% accuracy) and we're talking here about 26 vs. 52 bytes. I cannot estimate if it makes a big difference for UPs as it sums up over time and load.

Note: the calculations include a fixed gzip header. Without this header are the numbers a bit better (up to 70%) but it's still less than what you save by truncating the string. String compression is quite effective.

Danke Roger, so it might only save 50% bandwidth over a normal requery... but substract the number of searches I do to maintain a download alive, we sure save bandwidth in my case Maybe we could add a definite number of find more sources for one download: ie after three -consecutive- no more sources after a requery, the download state change to "failed to download, try another file". I know users that build list of incomplete downloads in the hundreds, so they'd always be requerying once an hour....

The one thing that prevents me from installing LimeWire on more computers (my Mom's, for instance) is the *easy* ability to monitor incoming searches. Who uses this? I know it tried to filter the worst smut, but plenty still slips through. Why can't this be moved to the stats page? I know you can search for the items that appear here, but does anyone actually do that?
