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.

That the lenght of the songs be in MB's instead of KBs, and an option to choose the type of audio media since the beginning (mp3, wma, avi).

Lightbulb Dowload Scheduler

Hi Everyone,

Did nyone feel a need for a scheduler in LW? I think it would / could be a good feature to have. You select all the d/l you want. Select the time you want to start, then the action you want to perform after they are complete. Meaning you dont have to have your comp running whole night, but shutdown when the d/ls are over. Or start the d/l at a particular time of the day?

What say guys ?

Default Auto resume downloads

Once all your download get need more sources it as far as I have seen doesn't automatically checks after some time if sources are available there should be a time feature like 2 minute or 5 after which all download which were stoped due to lack of sources get resumed.

Thumbs down re: Dowload Scheduler

There already is an option available for limewire itself to shut down after completing transfers.

If you right click the icon in the system tray it is available as 'Exit After Transfers'.

I personally wouldn't want limewire to have the power to shut down my computer.

Limewire wouldn't need to have the power to shut down the whole computer. Just the Program itself. I suggested this months ago.

A feature that should be implemented to that as well is seperate scheduler for downloads and uploads since many have a montly limit on how much to download during peakhours and flatrate part of the day/night but no limit on uploads From their ISP

Agree with Sleepy... My two cents are :

We are aware that LW can be shut down after all downloads are complete, however it would be nice to have a feature to d/l at particular times, or schedule the d/l. That is what I guess the main request was.

Also a good suggestion made, to check for new sources. Sometimes it does happen that ur d/l from 1 host and the host logs off, then u just get stuck with a 90% d/l till another host comes up (also could be a day bef4 some1 shows up with the file u r d/loading !)

Cheers!

Lightbulb i think i gotta good idea

how about a feature where you can rate the importance of a specific file that you are downloading. in other words say that your downloading like 6-8+ files, and u want a few of them to get done 1st/fast but dont wanna have to puase the others ya no? mabye a 1-3 or 1-5 system. 1 being most important or w/e and they all start on the lowest or mid level of importance and you can "up-grade" them. anyway, just thought it would be a good idea thx for listening

Arrow Save & Then Reuse Searches When Restarting LimeWire

I would like a way to feed a list of searches to LimeWire when starting up.

For instance, say I search for bird migration data, videos of bird flight patterns, and audio of bird calls. I would like to be able to specify a somewhat lengthy list of search terms and the type of search (document, audio, etc.), rather than retype the list each time I start up.

I think that searches could be easily saved to an XML file, which could then be read and parsed when LimeWire starts.

(Of course, then I guess you also need a way to edit and delete existing searches. So, it is not as simple as it first appears.... Although, changes to the XML file could be completed outside of LimeWire, using a text editor.)
