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.

Unhappy Deactivate Active Download

It would be nice to be able to deactivate an active download without entirely killing it (unless this is what kill download means). Highlighting the active download doesn't seem to activate the UP/DOWN arrows, so I presume it's not possible to nudge an active one to somewhere down the list amongst the pending 200+ queued uploads.

There is a pause button on downloads which can temporarily stop an active download, or an inactive one from becoming active. If you want to make an inactive one become active quicker, right-click on the column headers and choose the 'Priority' column (and sort by it), then highlight it and click the up arrow a bunch of times to move it closer to the top.

instead of the user selecting their connection speed, a quick test ( i know, i know, bandwidth issues for server will arise) to estimate users upload speed then assign a relevent section for them, such as dialup, cable/dsl, t1, or t3

and btw, t3+ seems kinda slow for dl speeds, 400 is 100%? my dsl goes 800
so i think this is a major issue to all the wannabe t3ers out there

another sug;
add oc connections :P
i can run limewire at my school on our OC3 line it it pwns
155Mbps eats that T3+ alive

Default Need more sources

I searched and haven't seen this one yet.
My request is when a file says Need more sources, the program automatically finds more sources every so often.

I must add that I've used Kazza and imesh, and I prefer limwire. Thanks guys!

I would like to eliminate some extensions (like wmv) in a filter like the keyword filter.

c_robertson as well as adding .wmv into your filter keywords, you can also remove it from the shared extensions under Tools>Options>Sharing. OR mac osx that's LW prefs>Sharing.

Default outgoing playlist

sometimes i like to 'leave the taps open' during an afternoon, and watch the monitor to see what's going out -- and i imagine happy users finding long lost rare songs.

but then i'd like to hear the songs as they go out. thus -- a playlist in itunes every time an outgoing song is 100% completed.

but since there is already a 'Limewire' playlist in itunes, perhaps it could go into two playlists:

- Limewire - In
- Limewire - Out

(i've also posted this as a thread, or should it be here under 'new feature requests...?)

Default suggestion

Please add an option to NOT automatically popup discription boxes (tips) when brosing through song lists. I like to highlight certain entries, but the boxes make it impossible to see what I'm doing, so I find them more disruptive than helpful.

Lightbulb suggestion

To avoid furter contamination of downloads like viruses and spyware, i hope an anti-virus software like norton anti-virus or mcafee can be present as an option. People can turn it off to get better dwonload speeds if they want, but with risks. If not, they have the ability to use their own anti-virus software to scan while downloading?

In-built Video Player(with codecs).

In-built java chatroom.

Ability to restrict sharing with an individual via IP address.

Media player can go into an individual window to edit when at other programs.

Maybe instead of only Limewire Basic and Pro, have
Bronze Basic, Silver Average, Gold Intermediate, Platinium Pro. Each have each different features. Platinum has most?
