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.

like in kazaa one of it's best features is that you could keep searching for the same file by click search more. Sometimes I'd click that thing 50 times and would keep finding stuff.

that would be a great feature!

thanks for a wonderful program!

There's already a similar feature (in a way): the Repeat search function.
Thing is, if every user hit 50 times in a row the repeat search thingy, the resulting fooding of the network would be so hard to overcome, we would switch to mailing CDs and VHS...

thank you for your response.

where do I find this repeat search feature?

Also I didn't get the feeling with Kazaa that I was repeating the search, more like it was adding files to the search already done, like extending the search. Are you saying that the repeat search works the same in limewire? I'd be delighted.

Well, if a search takes 1 minute, the if you repeat search you will be sure to have results that are a little different from the previous ones as users go online/offline oll the time all around the world. (To repeat a search, right-click the tab that displays the keywords used for the search and choose repeat search.)
Also, if you want more results, you can go to Tools, Options and look around: there's an option that allows you to set the amount of results to be displayed. Besides, I don't know if you've noticed, but sometimes, even though the search "meter" says that the search is over, results still come in.

i think what he means is that limewire should have an option where you can "autosearch" and leave the computer on overnight so the files can continuously pile up while they sleep. sitting there for hours punching the repeat search button, is too much trouble. i was wondering about the same thing. why doesnt limewire have this same function kazaa lite had. it was so convinient, and one of the reasons why i would have gone back to klite, had they not shut down.

I think that what he means is more like the search results are like a book and every time you click show more, it "turns the page".
Anyway, a feature like the one you mention ninja-san, was, I believe, already incorporated in LW some time ago. Even if it wasn't, the point is that there probably will never for the good of the network.

I'll explain (in my own "way"):

Whenever you click on that search button, a message is sent to the Gnutella network that says that there is someone looking for that file.
Good.
That consumes bandwidth (not much but it still does).
Ok.
If you had a autorepeat function, that would, overnight, continuously send those messages to the network.
For better or for worse, you and I are not the only ones searching the network: probably another 10000 users wanna do so too at the same time.
If all those users used that autorepeat function all the time, it would flood the network with those messages=network slows down=downloads/uploads slow down.
Not good.

yea that wouldnt be good. how is this for a suggestion though. allow the limewire PRO users to have the option to autosearch. that way there wouldnt be as much traffic. limewire is great for the songs everyone has already, but it is a bitch trying to find the unpopular songs. just a suggestion.

Mmmmh, yeah.

I can't really tell you what they're thinking since I'm not affiliated to the devs and other LW people, but the Pro and Basic aren't made so that you have to pay to get full functionality or things like that. The Pro has very subtile changes compared to the Basic version, and I think that's their current aim.
Basically, what I'm saying is that they will not put something in Pro that already isn't in Basic (if I'm wrong people, feel free to correct me).
Besides, even if they did that, cracks of the Pro version would most surely be made and distributed, maybe in Gnutella itself. As a result, too many people would still have the ability to use that autorepeat thingy. You know the consequences.

Some of my friends tend to tell me I think too much...

Perhaps you don't understand the logic of what the developers said back then & what Murasame was talking about. If you want a really really slow network then perhaps requerying would benefit you. There's other techniques to achieve what you want without requeries. If you've ever used the Resume funciton on ALL of your files (particularly if you have a large no. of incomplete files) then you 'might' get the grasp of just 'some' of the side effects.
