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.

I'm sorry, but I rather prefer my privacy. Anyway, what business is it of yours whether I register at the forum or not? As far as I can see, registering brings only two benefits -- edit and delete your posts, and post attachments. And it brings at least one downside: you have to hand out your email address, and that's the kind of thing that carries with it the risk of drowning in a torrent of spam.

Default Auto-block eTomi hosts

Auto-block eTomi hosts. I don't know what the hell eTomi is, but it is definitely not a legitimate client. Every attempt to download a file hosted by an eTomi source ends with "File Corrupt". RIAA and MPAA polluters, maybe? (though it seems to happen with jpegs, zips, and other file types, not just mp3s and videos...)

These are more in the nature of "bug fix requests" actually, and involve nuisance behaviors of the UI.

1. When there's a selection, and items in the selection move, the view shouldn't jump if there are still selected items in view. Currently it will jump unpredictably to different parts of the selection.

2. When there's a selection and it contains items that need more sources, await sources, or are busy, the Resume/Find Sources button should not be greyed out. Currently, if there are selected items connecting, downloading, or waiting in line, as well as at least one item that is not doing any of the above, it will sometimes be greyed out and sometimes not. If there is any item that is resumable it should not be.

Incidentally, what does the status "Locating Sources..." mean? I see this occasionally right after selecting to download some search results. Usually the item that shows this does so for a few seconds and then shows "Need More Sources". Also, what is with search results that "need more sources" right away anyway? Isn't that supposed to mean Limewire doesn't know of any hosts on the network that have the file? But it does -- the one that returned the search hit 2 minutes ago. In the worst case, that host might be busy. So any batch of fresh search results you go to download should end up in some mixture of connecting, busy, waiting in line, and downloading states, in theory. In practise this doesn't happen -- apparently because there are hosts on the network that return search results for files that don't exist, or that they don't actually have? Or hosts that exist for the purpose of sending search hits, but do not exist for the purpose of actually uploading files? That is bogus -- a host should report a busy signal, not pretend not to exist, if it won't or can't immediately honor a download request for a file that it does have, and it should not return search results referring to files that it does not have.

Default What is going on with guest posting???

I can't seem to post this anywhere but here. What is going on? Guest posting seems to have been turned off nearly everywhere. I can't add to the beta 4.9.0 thread, or apparently post much of anything anywhere else either all of a sudden. This thread seems to still allow guests to reply however. What is going on???

Sorry if these have already been mentioned as I dont have the time to read 20 pages of posts.

Better Media Player
Multi-Network support (as long as security and connection speed is good)
Some sort of built in filter for ad's and virus's. (the ones that are named whatever you searched for)

I <3 Limewire so wheather some of my ideas are implemented I will still be happy!

Lightbulb Feature Request

It would be nice to have an Image previewer. When you are downloading Images, you don't know what you are going to get. If you could have a Image Previewer you could see if you wanted to get that image or not and you would not have to waste time and download it to see what it is.

For some reason, I can't seem to post anywhere else but this thread without signing up for an arseload of spam and giving up my privacy first, so I guess I'll post this here, though it isn't, strictly speaking, a feature request. (Didn't guests used to be able to post anywhere? It's been a few months, but I thought so...)

How does one view arestra files? Despite the .jpg extension, these don't seem to be any image format Windows Explorer understands, nor my paint program. These are those thumbnail-sized images with __ARESTRA__ in the name.
