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 Search definitions & Fakes/Spoofs Exclusion Capability

I hope this is in the correct thread and that I am not re-inventing something someone else has already defined ... If so, I apologise.

1. Searches: In the search parameters, (eg artist, or album, or both) one can enter the requirements but the result is a massive overload of results which seem to bear no relation to the search definition. For example, to search under Music, for an album "Guitar Player" one gets an enormous number of non-applicable results.

Be very nice to enter a defined text string, and have LW ONLY report on those results.

2. Fakes: If one types in a search parameter, (eg: Hank Marvin or Elmer Bernstein) under Music, one will get a miriad 119.0kb results. I would like to be able to define by file-type (eg mp3) a minimum size - eh, 250kb. Anything less than that, screen it out. The same logically applies for other filetypes in the setup area.

Cheers all. Thanks for the development.

Default Manage Genre List

I would like to not only reduce the Search/Genre list to what I use, but also be able to add those that may not be listed.

Default Search on file type

I would like to be able to search on Type, where Type could be mp3 or wma or whatever. As my Search/Type only lists: Audiobook, Other, Song or Speech (none of which show up in any of my search results). If these choices are valid, they are labeled incorrectly.
When I input a search query criteria, I expect it to be labeled the same as it's respective field name. And the choices in that search option should be reflected in the respective query field results.

I would like to see a genre for Audio Books. It is very hard at present to search for books by a specific author and/or title because the search brings up all music etc. that is remotely connected. Thanks

Default Computer Overload

I just upgraded to the newest version and hoped my problem would be gone.

But not so.

Frequently Limewire uses between 97% and 100% of the CPU while it actually seems to be doing nothing. There seems to be an endless loop of code somewhere that is very hard to break out of.

Apart from that I think Limewire is

Default Sharing a network drive

It seems the new "anti-identity theft features" disallow sharing a whole drive. In my opinion, this is pointless. I guess its to protect the layer 8 challenged who will lazily share their entire C drive so they don't have to figure out where they stored their files, leading to their browser cookies and financial files and whatever else being advertised to the world. However, these people could just as easily share their "My Documents" tree, and then save a text file with the passwords to all their financial websites in there, so it wouldn't be much help to them. On top of that, there are drives other than C in the world- I happen to have 4 network drives, one of which is dedicated to music, nothing else. So to not be able to share an entire drive is silly, I know what's on my drives and what can be shared and what can't, why put an artificial obstacle in my way? Blocking the root of C is reasonable. Blocking the root of all drives is unreasonable. Or at least make it an option that blocks by default, but can be overridden, perhaps with scary warnings to dissuade those who don't fully understand the consequences of their actions.
