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.

My favorite mouse until now is a Logitech Click! Optical mouse: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...CONTENTID=6906

No worry about batteries, well suited for my hand, simple design, very robust cord and only 30$ Can.

Ciao

Could always go one of those engineering/design mouses. I remember over ten yrs back they had multiple buttons. Can't remember what they were all for but. But they were win based buttons if I recall.

I should get one, and I shouldn’t have to. I hate not using a mouse that works. I cant bare to throw it out, or have it sitting their not being used. Also, I hate having to move a mouse from my tower to my laptop. I have a Powerbook 17”, so I don’t mind spending a lot of money when necessary, but in this case, it is not since every program has or should have an Edit menu.

P.S. Contour makes a nice one for those of you with umm, big hands.

The mouse I was refering to was locally designed & made & was not that much larger I suppose. But was larger than many made at that time. Well, ... as explained the menu exists. Just need to find it. Just like the buttons on the mouse. Perhaps the menu could be advanced more but that's for developments to come .. should it become a popular request. Physio .. like exercising the wrist using the mouse sometimes. Build up the strength in 'your' favoured hand.

I'm still wondering why no one patented the optical moving extended keyboard: that would be one hell of a mouse with many buttons such as : qwertyuiop^ç1245 and many others!!!

What is the big deal? I just want an answer. I have not upgraded in a while. I will start to do so again once the Edit menu is included. No sense in paying when I don’t get the product I desire. I have done so in the past to help with development, but it is not going in the direction I want.
What do ya mean edit menu? like coppy paist delete and stuff? because that doesnt seem very useful in limewire because all they got is text...

hehe--good to see this annual request for the Edit menu again.

I've asked around for while too, and apparently Java doesn't offer programmers such a cross-platform option yet (don't know about Java 1.5).

So, java programmers are apparently waiting for the developers of Java to offer such functionality.

Otherwise, each platform would need to write an Edit Menu which would be separate for each platform, with all the debugging and support writing separate platform-specific code would entail.

Since the main keyboard commands (select all, copy, paste) have been implemented, it's been easy to copy results, file names, bug reports and all the other useful data.

So, thanks to the devs for doing all they can: looks like they're making good use of the Pro support.

Cough it up gfox: time to pay

btw Sam: can we please have an Edit Menu?
(and corrections to my misunderstandings will be appreciated too)

Ummm.. You do have an Edit Menu. Right-Click or Command (or Control?) Click.

(I feel deja vu.)

well . . . I thought that was called a "contextual menu" on Macs.

An Edit Menu would appear to the right of the File menu at the top of the screen, in the standard location all Mac apps have used since as far back as I can remember.

Was I wrong about the difficulties of implementing a proper Mac edit menu?
