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 More Suggestions

I would like to say LimeWire should be the primary gnutella program of use. It works for a wide selection of OSes, uses better features and operations (searching, d/ling, etc). I give many props to LimeWire trying to improve the gnutella network. I've been using LimeWire for the past 2 weeks and have succeded in many downloads but I've noticed alot things that could be "tweaked" a little to get optimal performance out of the network at the present time.

[ title ] - will be referring to the tabs in limewire.

my suggestions
[ search ]
· have a "smaller" max character limit for searching
· encourage users to search for keywords not the_ripped_movie(divx)1of2.avi
- keywords would actually produce more results

· have the "cancel" for the selected search as in v1.3)
- now you have to click "stop" then click "x" to exit
or right-click and "close search". The one button cancel was alot easier.

· even though you have a feature to drop "greedy" queries. it would make since to
stop them at the search entry (can still search for that_song.mp3 in LimeWire 1.4x).

· have some kind of checksum for search entries (people are searching for imcomplete files ex: N1-2506752-The Band - The Song.mp3 which is causing congestion). People actually think that it is the filename associate with that file. I'm assuming you have some type of "order check" because all imcomplete/downloading files have a different prefix to the filename. This would be a cool fix to Resume files in your imcomplete folder (searching for the specific keywords in the filename and hopefully finding a file with the same size and some other file checksum for that file type. Maybe comparing the first bits of the file?).

[ connections ]
· feature to kill host that is not accepting connections
- happens when a host has 0 amount of hosts during a specific duration. (People are starting to "Force" (Force IP) their IP to an invalid IP. Thus making other users not able to connect to them.

[ options - uploads ]
· the upload speed preference on bandwidth is great but it is also screwing downloads.
when a user with a cable/dsl or higher has the sufficent bandwidth and puts his
upload speed to 0.0 KB/s. Why even bother downloading when its going to take you
some odd hours for a file ~2MB @ 0.0KB/s,
(2MB @ 3.5KB/s -average download speed of a modem user- takes ~10 mins). while they have their
upload speed so low their downloading like crazy from other people, almost "freeloading").
- the minimum upload speed should be 3.5 KB/s. It doesnt really affect you're
downloading. Just your connections to other gnutella users. which shouldnt matter
because you're either already downloading files you've searched for or you've
already been uploading files that someone has searched for. after downloading
and uploading, you'll resume connections to other users for searching. Inform users how to manage their bandwidith with TTL, Connections, Upload Limits, etc.

· make it default or an option of having some type of limit where the same file can only be uploaded once to anyone at any time. I had some guy taking up all my upload slots with the same file today and I'm on a modem!

[ options - filters ]
· automatically drops messages from hosts that have the ip address or any other invalid
ip address numbers over

[ options - advance ]
force ip
· removing the manual entering of the "forced ip address". Many users are forcing their ip
addresses to or some other ip address that is not theirs or invalid. this means
those users can make outgoing connections but no one can make incoming connections. resulting in
the network becoming small segments. Just have LimeWire find the true IP address to the user's host.

· drop "invalid" queries. I've noticed it doesnt matter how many hosts I'm connect to I still get these ~100(char. length) invalid character (ex. †ÒŽÒÙþ) queries.
