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 LimeWire download accelerator

I think should be a LimeWire download accelerator. It should works searching more sources for download, just like kazaa accelerator. Or, if there is, other type of acceleration.

I remember there was a 3rd party one for LW but it turned out to be a dud. It caused more problems than it was worth & didn't work anyway.

Search the forum for accelerator. It only worked with one Windows version & apparently crashed the computer most of the times. That was from user feedback. It apparently doesn't work anyway. It was good for people with vivid imaginations who didn't mind their computer crashing all the time.

Accelerator with Kazaa worked just fine & THAT is not what killed Kazaa. Adware & spyware killed Kazaa & Grokster. I used both & enjoyed them as well as Bearshare, Aimster, Fileshare & Napster. In all cases, except Napster was an accelerator necessary. All this talk of crashing the network----what is the network if not us. How could we overload the millions of computers and the power of those computers if we are not centralized? I enjoy LimeWire for now but as a realist know there is another program down the pike. Accerator?? It's coming.

Default accelerator

the fool idea, is that when i search for a file, if it ever stops it just sits on the bottom like a turd. We NEED an accelerator! If the idea seems taxing, work one into the program that researches only every hour instead of constantly, but this is a necessity.

LW doesn't need one. Not if it's used wisely. I tried a softw from another network that searches forever almost & was an absolute pain. Yep it would be taxing on the Gnet. And the Gnet programmers are trying to be responsible about the way they design Gnet apps so they don't damage the network. Which would you prefer ... a program that searches endlessly & gets results back very slowly, & the downlds are very slow. Or would you prefer one that gives you quick results & quick downld speeds. Would you prefer to drive a car thru the peak hour traffic of central NY or drive a ferari on a beach or country road. lol

An accelerator is a doche idea but has a hint of an idea that may work, the abbility to find an unlimited ammount of sources seems strong. When i download MP3z n Programs all i get is one surce even if there are 30 people sharing the same file. I use pro & get this an accelerator is pointless if you want more download speeds BUY PRO.

Default Accelerator? You need broadband

I agree with LOTR and Night-Fire, an accelerator is a really naff idea because software accelerators only give the appearance of more speed without giving you anything.

Back in the dim and distant past I had a dial-up connection, I also got myself an accelerator which worked by caching (in my PCs memory) the next logical connection. However, if I decided to surf somewhere else, rather than the next screen page, I would loose the cache and my fake speed.

LW works by making dynamic connections, i.e. if you loose a connection to a file you are downloading LW tries to find another without interupting your download. How would you cache connections like that especially as one the many PCs you are connected to can be switched off at any time.

What is needed, if you have a slow connection, e.g. dial-up, is a faster connection, i.e. broadband (ASDL).

Nothing else will give you the speed you want.
