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 Two suggestions

I've been using LimeWire since the beginning of the year and have seen a lot of improvement of the programme - and Gnutella in general. But there are two features that I really miss:

1. The ability to easily redo searches. I constantly find myself entering the same search phrases over and over again, and I have to keep track of the files I want to find on a piece of paper (or a text file) because LimeWire has no mechanism for remembering and redoing the searches. I believe this kind of saving information and repeating the same actions over and over again really should be a computers job.

2. Easily resume broken downloads. The recent versions of LimeWire has some ability to resume downloads, but it only works for files/servers already on the Downloads list. Usually, for all the files in the Incomplete folder I have to copy their filename, paste it into the Search field, strip of the file size, wait for the search to complete, browse through the search results looking for a file with the same name and size and try to download that file. Again, I think this really should be automated.

File sharing with LimeWire has improved much with the latest releases, but it still involves a work and attention finding and downloading files, and keeping track of how many connections and hosts you've got to optimise your searches.

Here are some possible solutions to my two suggestions:

1. Make the search field a combined text box and drop down box much like the address field in Internet Explorer. You can then enter your search phrase in the text box or select one of your previous searches from the drop down list. This is so obvious I don’t know why it wasn’t implemented in Napster a long time ago. In Internet Explorer you can even choose to delete individual phrases from the drop down list to avoid it getting filled with unwanted phrases.

2. On the Library tab, put a Resume Download button next to each file in the Incomplete folder which performs a search for files with the same name and size and tries to download it. I see that TruStarwarrior is suggesting something similar in another resent thread.

This might not be the ultimate solution, but it should be fairly easy to implement and will make LimeWire much easier to use while an even more advanced and automated solution to finding and downloading files is developed.

Thumbs up downloads

I like #2 a lot, better than my file/oppen solution. Perhaps a tab "incomplete, so you could just double click on the selection.

Resuming downloads is easy: it does it automatically.

As long as the filename and file size are very close, it will automatically resume that download. I think LimeWire has gotten better resume download than it has before.

But, I like the idea of an 'incomplete' tab ... perhaps a place to view partial downloads, and have LimeWire automatically search for compatible files to finish the download from.

As far as the remembering past searches: EXCELLENT idea. I would like to see that as well. Or, even if they don't do that 'past searches' drop down menu, they could add a right-click feature to the search tabs that can do a 'research' or something.
