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 my wishes

On each start of LW, the default column sort is by #. Is there a way to change this? I just wanted to know before posting in the new features section here.

Remember last search TYPE (i.e. audio, video, images, etc.). Since I would guess that many users use Limewire only for a particular type of file (such as audio) that would save most of us a click

Add drop down arrows to the taps (or what they are now). I don’t like to use the ctrl key

Re-search button for corrupted downloads. click failed download and have it start a search for it

I would like a pull down, either a separate box or from the title box that would have a list of previous search terms. This way I don’t have to retype things like cute kittens and love poems. remember for each session.

Default Get unknown files for keyword

An option to search for a certain keyword, and to download every file, which I don't already have (which isn't greyed out). This would allow getting new trailers, filk-songs, and whatever you can think of automatically.

A menu item "Get unknown files for keyword" (maybe also "get unknown music from iTunes Artist" etc.) would be useful, I think.

But as limitation, it should then request a keyword and a cathegory, so we can avoid people downloading a hell of a lot of fake-files, and "get unkown songs from current artist" should only download music-files.

Default Size Criteria Search option

I have to be persistent for a request I put in some time back. But it echoes in my brain. xtra search option size criteria settings which I suspect has a number of benefits other than the obvious. A size critereon. What's wrong with it? Benefits Versus Negative effects on the Gnutella network? I guess it depends how you go about designing it.

This was already pointed out by someone else, but I'm still seeing my own files when I search.

Blah, Blah, Blah......

All this talk about computer jargon is makin my head hurt. I learned a term when I was in the's called K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid). There was only one guy on here that I thought exhibited that philosophy. Congratulations to him. What I would really like, and I hope this doesn't get edited, is for all movie clips, music video clips, and porn clips to have THE EXACT TITLE SOMEWHERE ON THE FILE!!!!! I'm sick and tired of watching something and wanting to buy it, but can't cause I have no clue where it came from. In the bigger scheme of things this file sharing is for testing media for REAL purchase. I think this is an injustice. And YES, it's mostly about the porn clips. Darn it!

@massillonmarine: Then download clips, add metadata (you can do so in library using the comment-button) and share them.

Once again, here's another thing I learned. Barney Style. Could you please break that down in terms that Barney could teach it to a pre-schooler. Thanks.

massillonmarine, unfortunatelly, there's nothing much you can do aside from re-naming your own files "right" (= with the exact title, without adding stuff like: "plz share" and other crap of the sort). The reason for that is that the files are not provided by Limewire itself.
It's like TV: there are several channels and you can watch any show those channels air at this and that time. However, it's not the TV (=the machine) itself that contains the shows, but the channels who "send" the shows to it.
In this (pathetic) example, the TV is the program (Limewire) and the channel companies are the users all over the world: you can see (=download) whatever shows (=files) they offer.
Coming back to the problem at hand, the consequence of all this crap below is that if 100 users share the same file, all of them would have to rename that file to the correct "title" so that all of the copies of the files that appear in your searches are correctly named.



Let's say that you see a file named X.


You download the file X from the 100 available sources and discover that its true name is actually Z.


You rename the file to Z.

Consequence: if I search for file Z, I will see one copy of that file (that you have) and if I search for X, 99 copies will pop-up.

In other words, for all Z files to show up as Z in my search, all the people that have that file have to rename it to Z.

Now, you can start by renaming your own file and sharing that.
You can also try (very very troublesome) chatting with everyone that shares the file X and asking them to rename it to Z...

I understand completely. Thanks. I don't know the exact procedures for posting a file, but I would hope that there is the best possible information on the file uploaded. Does anyone know how we could verify or something the file to get the exact title on there the first time? I know this is similar to asking you to pull a rabbit out of your orifice, but it's worth askin to me.
