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 auto search & auto resume

an option that makes limewire search for more hosts when an unfinished download that is in the Awaiting Sources stage is next in line, then resuming the download as soon as the search is done(closing the search tab as well). so, by this i mean the option should include downloads that are Awaiting Sources in the dl queue. about the resource issues of such an option, possible solutions would be allowing the user to set up number of re-searches before finally giving up on a file, or specifying a period of time to wait before searching for more sources.

i've had a lot of experiences where i select an unfinished download to "Find more Sources", but then it doesn't find any. but when i do a manual search and then try "Finding more Sources", it quickly finds hosts. but manual searches can get tiring, so automated searches would be a lot more convenient.

Thumbs up My Feature Requests

I've been playing around with LimeWire OSX for about a year now, and I love it but there are definately some improvements that are badly needed!

New Features:

1) Add a button for the "Search More" -> REPEAT SEARCH and GET MORE RESULTS functions, please and thank you! It sucks using the Contextual Menu via keyboard & mouse combo to issue each command for us Mac users with the standard one button mouse!

2) Please DEFAULT the Ultra-Peer option OFF for 1st time installs. This would be the number 1 turn off for Mac users with dial-up modems that end up waiting 2-3 minutes for a command to work and waiting endlessly for messages because their bandwidth & memory threads have been flooded. Most never use Limewire again after their experience with the spinning cursor going on endlessly. The second biggest LimeWire OSX complaint would the slow start-up time. But that would strictly be a mute point because of the Java backbone of LimeWire OSX, it's always slow!

3) Is there any hope of adding some mini controls or buttons to the MONITOR window instead of forcing us to constantly keep changing the settings from the preferences? For example a mini bandwidth slider, a small edit box for the slots and user amounts. And to take it even further, a BAN or BLOCK button for downloaders you don't like. I personally hate the losers with nothing but lame PORNO ads named to whatever filename you were searching for.

4) Another P2P program on the Mac OSX side called Poisoned has the ability to not only connect to the Gnutella network, but it can also connect to the giftd , Ares , FastTrack and OpenFT networks. As far as I know all 5 network types appear to very similar and are Gnutella friendly. Is there any hope of LimeWire doing the same in the future?

5) In the CONNECTIONS window, is there any chance of adding a speed indicator for the "Ultra-Peers" ? Currently my only option is to browse each one manually and then remove all the slow ones. And to expand even further, could there be a preference setting or checkbox to automatically only allow fast Ultra-Peer connections. I've noticed by experimenting and only keeping the fast Ultra-Peers connections that were using LimeWire Pro produced the fastest and most reliable searches for me.

And thanks for a great program that only get's better each update!

Default Save to computer feature request

A feature that allows us to transfer the file to our computer would be helpful. We could then store it in Windows Media, or make a cd out of it. I can't do anything with it right now. But, if we could just be able to save/ move the files into a folder on our comp instead of in Limewire, then I would be grateful. I'm trying to make a cd, and I got referred to limewire. But I cant move the files to be able to make the cd.

Well a virus reporting plug-in would be pretty good...that may files reported as viruses can be scan by the network and if they are found as a virus they would be deleted and the creators I.P. traced... so also I think it would be a good idea for the files to have An I.P. STAMP on them or like limewire automaticly enscribes the files with an I.P. stamp so that if they are ever report as viruses,trojans,worms,ad-ware,hacks etc... they can be traced to their originators...for example you could trace everyone that has limewire pro. should remove those files off the network...because i know that you arent happy about that are you? all anybody has to do is search limewire pro. in the free version and downlaod it and install... another good idea is to put an activation key on limewire pro so that people will really have to buy it...

To reduce storage space, and confusion. When dubbing a file into a second language can we put English on the Left channel and the second Language, Spanish, French, Etc. on the Right channel? This gives 2 user groups the same file.

Sleepless is just really nice

The moment people turn uploadslots to zero, the files in the library should become red, number of shared files become zero and none of the files show up in searches anymore, also browse host should not show any files if they can't be uploaded anyway.
