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.

No, I'm talking about having ONE button for minimizing to tray, and ONE button to immediately exit limewire. If you hit the X button now, it will go to the tray, and then you have to right click on the icon and hit close. It's just a lot easier and more convienient to use a single mouse click for each operation, instead of several clicks like it is now.

Yeah I guess that would be a lil bit logical because having to right click it every time is kinda annoying. and if ya forget the program eats up a lot of ram.

thats with every ISP guy, you posted an awfull LOT of IP's, some of which are dialup IP's of lots of different ISP', for example, 172.* is a class b IP range that most AOL customers have, and you have blacklisted it. who WOULD spam with dialup? its an extremely slow service. im not saying people dont do, as i am sure there are, but its not as common as it is with a dynamic ip dsl service. since transfering with dsl is much more quick than it is 56k standard dialup.

but as many ip ranges as you specified, you will be blocking alot of people, you might as well just block *.*.*.* since thats what it seems as tho your trying to do. its very ambiguous.

In another thread someone said the spammer is a major telecommunications company. If that's the case it explains the diversity of IP addresses generating bogus search results with ipod spam.

I've got a feature request. How about we make the "quality" icons actually accurately reflect reality for version 4.9?

Using 4.8.1, I notice all of the following:

Green checked items I don't already have (no overwrite prompt if I go to download it)
Starred items I do (there *is* an overwrite prompt if I go to download it)
Torn paper items I have (ditto)
Folder icon items I already have (ditto)

The first is the most pernicious for collecting files -- it means you can't go by the icons and mass-select everything not checked to download and add everything you don't already have. You have to select the checked items too, and that invariably means a large number of overwrite prompts to respond "no" to. Of course, nobody seems to have thought it worthwhile having "no to all" on that dialog... (or "yes to all" for that matter).

On a related note, how about a way to retry corrupt files other than selecting it, hitting "stop", repeating the search that originally found the item, and praying that it is found again? They don't "resume", which doesn't make too much sense -- it should try to get the file again (if necessary, from scratch) from the known sources if you select a "File Corrupt" entry and hit the resume button. Instead, that button is greyed. Attempting to resume it from the Incomplete folder on the Library tab results in it searching for a zero length file of the same name, failing to find it, and then you're left with an entry in your download list "awaiting sources" that doesn't work properly (e.g., select it and hit "resume" and nothing happens. It doesn't go to "connecting..." or "queued" or anything else. If you set the table to sort by status and to auto-sort, then do it, it doesn't even move -- it should end up at the bottom of the "awaiting sources" list even if it does so too fast for the eye to see, but in fact it does nothing...and it shouldn't even go too fast for the eye to see. It takes a full 60 seconds to be sure a TCP connection has failed. It shouldn't give up any sooner than that, and anyway should respect the timeout interval set in the computer's network stack configuration and not use its own timeout interval.)

The overwrite prompt only appears if you're downloading a file and you already have a file that has the same name. It doesn't necessarily mean you "have the same file", it just means you have a file named that. Two files can be the same and have different names, in which case the green check mark will appear, but LimeWire won't warn you that you're going to overwrite an existing file.

If you're not seeing stars on items that have the same name as something in your saved directory, it may be because there's a small delay in updating what LimeWire knows as "saved". For the most part, it should be right, though. Is this a very common occurance?

Torn paper just means you have an incomplete download which matches that file. I think the checkmark (saved) takes priority over that, though. Same thing with downloading (except it means you have an active download).

So you're saying the green check can appear if you have a file of a different name, with the same content? It compares against all the files in the download directory?

stief has a spectacular aura about

I'd rather see the green checkmark used for "same hash" --where the content is the same but the name might differ.

It is handy to know that a file has the same name--how about a yellow check for that?

Yellow checks would only turn green once the hash is retrieved from the host (i.e, no need to retrieve the hash unless the user explicity asked for a check by initiating a download).

Then a "rename" dialog would be more useful than the "overwrite" one.
