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.

Thumbs up burning cds as audio also

i would like to be able to burn cds on llime wirs library instead of draging it to windows media, or roxio or any other device that your able to burn cds, (audio, mp3s etc.)Now that would be even faster to make your cds and youll be able to keep searching whatever it is that your searching for.

Burning CDs while running something CPU-intensive is likely to result in coasters. Limewire is very CPU-intensive.

Exclamation

Here's a feature request: Limewire doesn't write unmovable files.

Every batch of downloads seems to contain a subset that Explorer won't let me move or organize -- trying to produces a message saying the file name is "too long or invalid", which is nonsense since if the file name was really too long or invalid it couldn't have ended up with that name in the first place -- Limewire would have been unable to save the file with that name in the first place.

Nonetheless, there's something Explorer (but not the underlying filesystem) finds objectionable about a certain percentage of Limewire-originated files -- and no other files. I've never seen this happen with a file created by myself, installed from a disk, or downloaded via anything else -- only with files downloaded via Limewire.

Whatever it is, presumably Limewire is responsible. (Odd file permissions? Something of the sort?) And therefore, presumably a future version can avoid doing it. Files downloaded in the Firefox Web browser never exhibit this problem, so it's clearly possible to make an application that downloads files and avoids leaving them in a state where they can't be moved.

The funny thing is that renaming them in Explorer does make the files movable. It seems there's some weird length limit that applies to moving files but not to creating them in the first place, not that that makes any sense, but since when does anything that came from Microsoft make sense? If that is indeed the case, the solution is just to truncate names at, say, 60 characters -- all the files exhibiting the problem have had names considerably longer than that. (It still begs the question of why the OS would permit the files to be given such a name in the first place but then refuse to allow them to be moved...)

There's indeed a path length limit (MAX_PATH C macro, on most modern systems 1024 byte/char).

That doesn't explain why the length limit stops a file that exceeds it being moved, but doesn't stop the file being created with the long name in the first place -- shouldn't Limewire get an exception thrown or something?

The JVM throws on Mac OS X a "FileNotFoundException: <very long path> (File name too long)" exception. The Finder on the other hand seems to use relative paths in one direction (I can create paths beyond 1024 byte and I can copy files into such directories) but as soon as I try to copy/move a File back to the Desktop it refuses the operation (i.e. relative destination path and absolute source path).

Btw, MAX_PATH is 260 chars on Windows XP (modern system -- so much for that). Check if your file's path is >=260 chars...!?

A more advanced Magnet "creator".

So I can set like fallback URL (&xs=http://server.to/file.zip),
define a download name (&dn=What+ever+I+want.smile),

...and so one...

Would be REALL neat if LimeWire could add urn:kzhash in addition to urn:sha1...

Exclamation Make UI more responsive

Limewire currently hangs a lot. It recovers -- usually -- but frequently the UI completely stops responding, sometimes for minutes at a time.

When a file completes downloading or if you select some downloads and cancel them or "clear inactive" downloads, Limewire hangs with 100% CPU use, often for a substantial amount of time and interfering with using other applications on your computer with the excessive CPU use. Clearing inactive downloads makes it hang potentially for half an hour or more -- but it slows down and becomes unstable if you don't every so often, so you're stuck between a rock and a hard place there.

SOMETIMES when you launch a search or change tabs in the search area, but not always, it hangs for about half a minute with zero CPU use. This seems to be a different type of hang. I think this hang is caused by the displaying of a new/different search tab causing it to "think" an inordinate amount and in the main event handling thread to boot -- but since there's no cpu use, it looks like it's blocking on I/O or something in this case. The other, more severe hangs seem caused by the removal, either via completion or cancellation, of items from the download list. It seems to last a time proportional to the number of items removed. In this case it's apparently pure number crunching in the main event handling thread, rather than waiting for some disk or network event in that thread.

Slow sort algorithms perhaps?

Thumbs down

Here's a feature request for you: please remove the popup from the Limewire Web site and promise not to try to spam me, or anyone else, again.

Thank God I never go anywhere with IE but Winblows Update, and use Firefox for everything else...

Seeing as there is no popup on our website, I would have to presume that you have some form of spyware or bundled software running on your computer. They like to pop ads when they detect a browser navigation to sites like ours.
