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.

As someone who is broadband-challenged, lemme say that this request SUCKS!

To faster I can download a file (especially a large file), the better.

Default Downloads Progress

How about instead of showing the downloaded percentage of a file, why not show the actual # of KB downloaded ( i.e: 2496 of 10892KB download)?

but all you need to do now is go to your LW Lib window & incomplete folder & press refresh every now & again. But then listing the size as suggested & % would be good (maybe an option to click at the top of the Progress column.)

Back to my 1st point about checking the Library. I've noticed that on large dwnlds (particularly those over 100 MB) that at one time it shows perhaps 101 or 102k KB & then the next time I refresh it, it shows 100.6 MB or something. And whilst the 1st one showed it in kb the 2nd in MB. (This has happened numerous times) Is there some issue there? (I particularly notice it on my connection.)

Lightbulb iTunes for Windows

Just a quick feature request.
I would love iTunes integration in LimeWire for XP like on LimeWire for OSX.

A feature that limewire should have is the option to download the newer version of LimeWire using LimeWire that would make it easier then going to the website.

Default Basic security

I would like basic security, this comes in two parts.

First of all, please allow SSL to be configured, even if it's anonymous DH key exchange, that's better than nothing. One of the dorms I lived in had hub style networks, so everyone in the building could see everything you did on the internet, including everything you downloaded with Limewire. :-( It's not a serious issue, but it should be trivial to add a capability to use SSL if both clients support it, considering that the code is already in most JVMs.

Secondly, it would be nice for there to be basic privacy and anonymity. Allow the ultra-peers to have a "host on your behalf" option, where an ultra-peer will pretend to have your files, and will act as an intermediary in all transfers. This could help with caching (perhaps accumulating files on ultra-peers), and allow the edge nodes to remain private. It could also allow an ultra-peer plausible denyability for everything they host.

The best way to do this is to have an "intermediary probability" that can be set between 0.0 and 1.0 by the user. If the setting is at zero, then you never host on behalf of anyone, if it's 1.0, then you host on behalf of anyone. If it's somewhere in between, then you can't really prove that the ultra-peer was responsible for a file because you don't know that he wasn't hosting someone else just because he refused to host you.

That would be a very simple addition that would make the network FAR more resiliant.

If you want to mask Gnutella traffic completely you would have to break the protocol.
So there probably won't be any SSL in the near future.

Default explain upload options better

I was under the assumption this would limit the number of uploads a person can use at any given time. Now I am under the assumption it is a total value for some given amount of time. Either way it is confusing.

So does it mean (a): If I allow 6 uploads, and set the uploads per person to 2, then one user could upload all the files I have to offer, but only two files at any given time.
Does it mean (b): A user can upload 2 files from me, thats it. Forever (or for the day? whatever)

I would like to have option (a), but I need some clarification on what it means.
