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 Suggestion.

I don't know if this has been suggested or not but..
--An integrated search in the Library (not incomplete downloads) It is somewhat of a hassle to have to look through all your songs just to play a certian one.. I prefer to browse my songs through Limewire rather than Windows explorer so this would prove very useful.. Preferably make it like the Winamp search where it searches as you type and you don't have to press a button..

Default progress tab tooltip downloaded/total

when extended tooltips are off(or both),tooltip for progress bar to have downloaded/total size(like the speed shows the long download speed)in kb/mb/gb acordingly,example: "1024kb/4860kb" or "1.00mb/4.74mb" (without quotes ofcourse)
this is a small & simple feature(compared to other requests...), if i could code then i would try to add it myself :P

How about standardised music descriptions?

eg: track no; song title; artist; album name

That way it's easy to sort and put into cd folders & playlists.

Lightbulb ADDING more sources manually

I know that there has been much discussion and debate about automatically querying for sources.... but a feature i would like to have added is whe you right click on one of you downloads there be an option "Add more sources", as i continually find that i file I am downloading will have at least 20+ people (if not more) that are sharing that file with good connection speeds, but my download will only be coming from a single host with a mere 1-5k d/l rate. (what happened to the other 19+ hosts that were found and all my extra bandwidth that could be used?)

The download will always try all of the hosts (up to about 6 maximum hosts at once). Many of them may be busy, offline, or unable to immediately service the request.

I have tried many times to chat with someone only to have "unavailable" pop up on the chat window. Maybe they think the RIAA is trying to reach them?

It would help if the person you are trying to chat with doesn't get their pop up window until you have already sent the message. They might be a little less apprehensive if they see the message first.

Delete file option when you right click on a file under downloads. Put it under the Kill Download option. Sometimes you download a file and when you preview it you decide you don't want it. Clicking on kill download on stops it from downloading. The file is still in the incomplete folder wasting space.

Preview Avi just like in Kazaa Lite K++. They have a separate program that builds the the avi file so you can preview it.

Porn safe mode. You can mark porns as porns during download and also have it save on a separate hidden folder. Then with a special key combination or button you can hide your porn away. Especially usefull if you are downloading porn then someone asks you to download a song for them, then you can hide your porn with a quick key combination. When they look, hmm no porn. Sort of like a panic button or key combination.

View options on files being uploaded and those searches that are flagged with green checkmark.

The most crucial new feature needed is built-in reputation management (credence or something similar), with poorly-reputed files preferentially dropped by ultrapeers when they have to dump some search results to not choke and die of insufficient bandwidth. Currently, bogus results are quite frequent and seem to get injected from a lot of places, and though it's easy to spot and ignore them most times or even block the hosts spewing them into the network, they are crowding out legitimate results, a problem that you can't solve by simply ignoring it.
