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.

LimeWire has a separate configuration for upload speeds, and a convenient display of the actual upload speed you will use under the slider control used in the options pane.

The first main option to set the speed is based on download speeds, but it's true that the fast installation wizard only asks for your download speed, ignoring the frequent case of asymetric connections. You have to open yourself the Options panel.

Note however that LimeWire will learn by itself your effective upload speed, by monitoring the uploads your servent has performed. This information is saved in your local "limewire.props" file. So even if the upload speed is set apparently too high because of the download speed setting, LimeWire will adjust itself the reported upload speed based on your upload experience and your past connections and uptime.

Default LimeWire as Download-Helper

Hi,

I'd love to be able to set LimeWire as standard download helper.

For this it would just need to also support ftp, and then it would become normal for LimeWire Users to let it do their standard downloads (which would then automatically be reshared). I'm sure there are GPLled ftp-helpers.

It would make general adoption of Magnet-Links as download-source far easier, because the most simple magnet-link to get a web resource is simply:
magnet:?as=<url>&dn=<download-name>.

Could LimeWire maybe also process magnets like this one without dwonlload-name, by simply taking the file-name as specified inthe URL?

stief has a spectacular aura about
Default Toggle nested/flat displays of search results and Library Folders

old request--

Toggling the nested Shared folders to a flat display would be good (it's difficult to see the most popular uploads from an iTunes Music or iPhoto folder since the files are often nested quite deeply).

Since path info is included in search results, toggling the flat display to nested would be very useful for downloading from a browsed host.

I would like to see for Windows XP, the songs to automatically copy into Windows Media Player or itunes. I know on the mac version it automatically copies the song into itunes. They should do that so it automatically copies songs into wmp.

Default Share stripped mp3s

There was a proposal to share mp3's stripped of their metadata some time ago (only the data-part of the file), so files with different metadata can be merged together. Are there still plans for this?

That way, metadata would be transfered via xml or similar, so the receiving host adds them itself (but search results would still show the files with metadata, only the invisible part: The swarming would be done with stripped files, and every query result would have to have two hashes: one with metadata for older nodes and one for the stripped file-part for those, which support this kind of sharing).

WOW! A net browser incorporated in LW? And what makes you think that this wouldn't consume just as much cpu? (Don't know. Could be...)
Anyways, that would be a whole lot of work, to make a good browser. And if the Lw devs (somehow) decide to go for it, .... Me thinks that either the price of Lw will increase significantly (for the Pro, if they decide to keep the Basic), or they'd have to recruit an entire dev department dedicated to the browser, because LW is written in Java and browsers (from what I understand) aren't. Plus, in order to keep the cross-platform nature of LW, they'd have to make different versions of the browser too... And I've seen how different a browser can be from PC to Mac (IE).

Actually, LimeWire integrates a web browser component in the Basic Windows version, to display the content of the LimeShop page (loaded locally). It is an IE component, with no navigational feature. This pane will most probably disappear in the next release. Java has its own browser classes, with limited capabilities (no CSS2 support, no JavaScript, and a still too poort HTML 3 parser, but it is enough to build a GUI interface, as seen in the "About..." scrolling window). But it would be effectively interesting to find a cross-browser support class for Java that allows a clean integration of modern browsers for desktops: IE, Netscape (4, or Gecko-based 7+), the MacOSX default browser, or the excellent (Gecko-based) Mozilla Firefox browser for Windows/Linux/Mac.

Selfish and egocentric as I am, I just want a purple and black version of the pink and black skin, without having to make it myself... Did I mention I'm lazy too.
