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.

Lightbulb Integration with antiviruses!!!

Maybe the developers could make an option to recompose the parts of the file being downloading, and make it analyzabel for popular Av's like AVG, or Norton i guess, that should help making downloads more relyable and effective, and add an option to the file rating: "Virus!!!"

Exclamation My thought

I think LimeWire should allow you to search by composer. I'm a huge Danny Elfman fan, and want to find things that he's composed.
I could've sworn that there once was a "composer" search field, but it must have been removed, because I can't find it anymore. Please bring it back. Thank you.

Post Simple Menus Improvement

I just want an item in the file menu to close the program entirely.
Rename "Close" to "Hide" or "Minimize to Tray" then add the "Exit" and "Exit After Transfers" items.

As of now the only way to actually exit is with the tray menu, which can be annoying.

Lightbulb Filetype Filter and File Recognition

You can already ignore .HTM/.HTML, .VBS, and .WMV/.ASF filetypes. I want a few more checkboxes, or at least one for those stupid .MOV files. As for the File Recognition system, here's what I had in mind: Limewire has the option to "Lookup File with Bitzi". I was wondering if Limewire could use this as a database for the bitprints of files on the network. This way, you could block the file and not just that host's version of the file. This could help get rid of those annoying spam files that are on millions of different hosts. You block the file, not the host. I'm not sure if something like this has been proposed. I've checked the list, so either it hasn't been proposed or it just hasn't been posted on the list yet. That's all I want for now.

Keyboard shortcut for accessing the Options window on windows. Similar to OSX's , although that's rather generic for almost all OSX apps to reach the preferences. Certainly on windows it would save the 2 steps of reaching Options. And also for Linux if it has the same access as windows to get to Prefs.

And consideration of a keyboard shortcut for connecting & disconnecting for all OS's.

So I was mindlessly staring at a download, like when most of my ideas are born and I had a little thought about what bugs me most: network content.

The plan goes something like this -

Every time a user upgrades Limewire, it searches through the shared folder for files known to be junk and if any are found Limewire alerts the user and gives them a list of the junk files with check boxes next to them. The user can then decide to remove the files or not depending on if they actually want the files.

Like an optional little shared folder check up and spring clean with every upgrade.

I haven't really thought it through properly but thought I'd spit it out before something shiny distracts me..

Default Filtering Comments

I have noticed very much junk turning up in limewire. Sometimes lamers add comments to their junk that says "not related to: (your search)." That way their junk turns up in your search. Having filtering that excludes results that have keywords that are in the comments would dramatically reduce this type of junk. I would suggest that filtering the comments would also be an optional feature, so you can choose to filter them or just the main file name.

Default Diable "Program" Search and downloads

MANY programs that are available for download are corrupted, mislabeled, or contain trojan virusus and spyware.

Please enable SELECT/DELETE for "Search Types" and downloads

Default Filter files by minimum and maximum size.

A feature I would really like added is the ability to filter searchs by the minimum and maximum size of search result files. Every other P2P program I have ever used has this ability. I'm just sick of looking for a medium to large size file, and having my search slowed down and cluttered by thousands of tiny ones.
