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.

Salut, if you use java 1.3, no scroll wheel for you. However Java 1.4 and 1.5 are supporting it. If you want LW to have scroll wheel support dl java 1.5 at Download the JRE not the SDK. Uninstall your current java then install 1.5. Start LW and voilà!!! Scroll support.

Bonne chance

Default Java 1.5 But LW Pro still using 1.3

Dear LW People

I have just downloaded and installed Java 1.5 and, like V1.4.x before it, my LW Pro V4.0.8 seems to completely ignore the latest Java applet and continues to use V1.3, the Java applet it came with.

And before anyone suggests it, I did close down LW Pro before installing Java 1.5 and I rebooted my PC afterwards. I then checked the installation, within Control Panel, to ensure V1.5 was properly installed and working. Only then did I restart LW Pro and check to see that it picked up the new installation, as you can see from the attached screen print it has not.

Also, I do not have Java V1.3 installed on my PC, not directly anyway, that came with the default installation of LW Pro.

My request is this; there should be a manual facility, within “Options”, to direct LW to latest Java installation. For example, my installation of Java is on C:\Program Files\Java\Java\jre1.5.0 but I do not have any way of telling this to LW Pro or asking it to do a new search.

Unless I have missed something, all that I can say is that automatic find functions are good if they work as intended or have some sort of manual override function to be employed if they do not.

Therefore, lets have a manual Java configuration facility so that users can point LW Pro to the folder/directory where the latest Java applet is installed.

UK Bob

I have read that different versions of Java can be installed in 1 OS.
Perhaps you could check under software on your config screen and see it there's more than one and eventually uninstall the old version ?

Use the "English" LimeWire instead of the international one. In order to ensure that the JRE supports international characters, the international installer installs its own JRE (1.3). The English one will use whatever is on the system.

Default LimeWire International cannot use latest Java applet

Dear sberlin

Thanks for your reply but it has delivered somewhat of a shock to my system, back in May when you helped me with my “Tools>Options & Buttons” problem I then asked about getting LimeWire Pro to use the latest installation of Java on my system, this was your reply:

The problem may be in our executable, in that it doesn't recognize the newer Java versions. If that's the case, it's not something you can fix, it's something we have to fix. Rest assured that we'll look into it.

What I find so shocking is that the International version of LimeWire Pro has been recommended in this forum, over the English version, time and time again. However, you are now saying that if I want to use the latest Java applet, with the extra facilities that it brings, I will have to install the English version because the International version will only ever use Java V1.3, the applet that is part of it’s installation.

Sberlin, in all honesty, don’t you think this bug, i.e. the International version not being able to use any other Java applet other than the one it came with, as something that urgently requires attention?

UK Bob
