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 Make upgrade Mandatory

Not sure if it would help network stability or even speed, by why not make a feature that automatically upgrades the limewire version, that is only for those who currently have a older version. Ive noticed that alot of users who download off me have real old versions, not to mention some of the ultra peers i connect to have old versions. Just a thought.

Default Mandatory Upgrades

Stevieb

Not a good idea, most windows apps require more disk space and more processor power with every upgrade, that means that unless you had a modern PC your machine would eventually start to slow down.

Unless LW folks are working on making the software smaller and more efficient, i.e. using less CPU power, then users would be forced into upgrading their PCs every few years just to keep up.

PS. However, security upgrades should be mandatory.

Newer programs bring more efficiency, or atleast that's why we have newer updates/patches, etc. One key example I can note is of one ultra peer who had version 4.0.1 , this is quite an old version and should be upgraded.

I completely agree with the security updates, although I disagree with the efficiency notion. Even though i havent been using limewire for the longest time, I did upgrade and such, and did happen to notice the simple trend that higher versions didnt necisarily slow down the machine more and more, it was infact the amount of files; which has been stated through out these forums numerous times.

This brings the question why does Limewire update there program as often as they do if it doesnt help the program.

Default Efficiency

Stevieb

I think you are confusing "efficiency" with more facilities.

I also agree that most windows apps upgrades give more facilities to the app concerned, as well as bug fixes and fine tuning. However, all these extras require more disk space and more processing power. Plus, as you may or may not know, most of the coding for the previous version of the app is left in the new version. That's why most windows apps require more CPU power, i.e. because the CPU has to plow through old coding to get to the relevant new code.

The rational behind this is that programmers time is more costly than either RAM memory or HD space. Therefore, windows programmers, on the whole, do not strip out the old redundant coding for new versions of their apps.

However, that is not to say that all windows programmers and software companies adopt the same policy because there are some tight and neatly written windows apps that don't demand a lot of PC resources. But in the main, windows apps get bigger and more resource intensive with every new version.

I think Bloat (click on link) is one of those issues about updates/upgrades that makes a point about is it really necessary & what's with the larger size. But that article is in reference to M$ & does not apply to LW where there's obvious improvements being made to both the G network & the program.
