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.

Default "Find more sources for download"

It works great with Kazaa lite. I think it would make Limewire the best program if it had the "find more sources for download" option. It speeds up downloads significantly by finding more sources for the download.

In K-Lite, you right click the current download and you just click it repeatedly and your download speeds up. All in favor of this option post here.

thanks.

exactly, my friend, who is also my neighbor has K-Lite and we ran a test.

We both downloaded the same video that was a 1MB in size from a T1 user. I used Limewire and he used K-Lite. My top speed was 25 and his with the "find more sources for download" was 125!

We both have the same connection, and our programs are configured as close as they can get. And he downloaded the movie in 1 hour and it took me about 5 hours.

This can really bring joy to LimeWire users.

BTW: some of you I know are like "well then switch to K-Lite" I dont like it, I never did like Kazaa, and I just dont like it. I LOVE the download speeds, but hate the program.

Who me? lol

You can do pretty much the same thing by manually searching for more sources. OK it's different. But it can have the same effect.

IMHO: Your suggestion sounds good, but I'm not sure what effect it would have on the Gnutella traffic which is why LW has steered away from using techniques that add loads of xtra traffic. Doing so would slow the netwrk down for everybody & also cause traffic problems with UP's & particularly large networks. The idea sounds good but I've never had any experience with those apps you mentioned.

another thing I just thought of and I would like Mods to comment on this:

Limewire advertises that it has faster downloads than Kazaa, but thats not true because of the fact that Kazaa has the "find more sources for download" option and Limewire doesnt. So basically, Limewire doesnt have faster downloads than Kazaa.

Now I understand that if you were to add this option to Limewire, the server would be slowed down and the traffic would be insane, but If their is a possibitlity to reverse those problems, add this app and Limewire will now be faster than Kazaa.

jut my opinion.

To manually search for more sources, simply put the file-name into the search field and search again.

Thumbs up Finding More Sources

This is my only complaint with Limewire. Well, my only real complaint. I don't see how adding "finding more sources"/faster downloads would tie up the system more. Actually, I'd be finished my downloads sooner, thereby clearing more room and space for others to seek, search, and choose. I hated Kazaa with all its different pronounciations of its name, all the spyware, the pop-ups, and the way it just killed my computer; BUT I sure loved that "find more sources" button/option. Downloads went from an estimated time of 20 minutes to being completely downloaded and done in 2-3 minutes.

I know the brilliant minds at Limewire aren't going to let those money grubbing geeks at Kazaa one up them. Matter of fact, I'm sure they'll find a way for Limewire to automatically search out and "find more sources" automatically so we don't even have to concern ourselves with it.

I've selected files for download and its taken days and weeks for that file to come through. Hell, I have so many incomplete files from files not getting a chance to download they were taking so long.

Finding More Sources is by far the most important feature to be added in future releases of this outstanding P2P. Even without it, Limewire is the best there is, but you don't become the best and start to rest, you work even harder to keep the title.

I have an idea, how it could be done transparently for the User:
When selecting "Find More Sources", LimeWire could open a new Search with the file-name (but replacing with spaces every "-", "_", ".", and all those other fill signs, as if the user just started that search, and with at most 5 words (so that long filenames don't create rare searches, where the searches could also be simple and give more results).

Then every User could see, what LimeWire does, and it could do the "one query an hour", which the system should be able to bear.

It would be even more efficient (but also more complicated) if LimeWire checked all downloads, if there are words, which appear in more than one of them (as if a search would come in, which means, that it doesn't matter, if the last three letters really fit).
Then it could automatically search for these words, as long as they don't appear in more than 6 of the files. Else it could do the check again for those containing the word, so some files get grouped in searches fitting at most 6 files (while others are being done via normal requery).

It could even create a loop, in which searches "with more downloads" get searched for more often (but still only one search per hour, so others would simply get stalled).

This would create a great reason to leave LimeWire running night and day, thus making more sources avaible.
