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 limewire and azureus

the limewire development team and the azureus development team should work together with source code, both parties could share source code with each other... and maybe then after you could easily add bittorent support to limewire. if bittorrent support will never be added, (i hope it will) but if its not, then atleast limewire AND azureus can both benefit by sharing each others source and helping each other out. because in my time using it, azureus has some VERY VERY nice features... altho the UI still needs to be cleaned up a bit.. lots of the features found in azureus SHOULD be put into limewire.. and vice versa. maybe azureus doesnt want to use limewire features? maybe.. but limewire WOULD benefit out of the use of some of their source code and feature sets.. i would definetly like to see some sort of bittorrent support added into limewire along with LOTS of the azureus feature sets...

1. downloads window should have ATLEAST a right-click option to stop and delete. it would be nice to have this as a button too. reaffirm the action also.

2. if downloads/uploads are below 0 kbps then display the bps. if downloads/uploads are above 1024 kbps then display mbps etc.. because a do sharing on lans too .

3. if any message (like file names etc) are truncated on the rows/columns then a tooltip would help out on not just searches, but download windows too if extended tooltips are enabled.

4. downloads window should show how much has already been downloaded... AGAIN, please convert bits -> kilobytes -> megabytes.. i hate guessing and calculating sizes. when i file reaches 1024 bits, then show kilobytes, when it reaches 1024KB then show MB etc..

5. also to that note ^ (#4) please do the same with the size column.

6. give indicators on the health of each download.

7. other p2p apps have this one: drop-down/ drill search results of multiple hosted files.

8. (should be my #1 request) add bittorrent support. along with that, add ability to create .torrent files. once bittorrent support is added, it will help the content growth of the gnutella network if the files were added to the shared library once completed.

9. azureus has a force-check ability that makes sure the download has completed successfully and completely without errors.

10. azureus has their tabs show the close button on the right instead of the left.. it keeps the windows feel authentic. allthough i like the X.. it just seems allittle jumpy on auzureus.

11. configuration wizard and problem analyzer. this would help out the dumb users lol.

12. auto-update feature. pro users would have to login.

13. priority uploads.

14. ability to unshare sub folders of root share. and also unsharing of individual files. users should also be shown what files are not shared by displaying them as being red. (the color coding logic is currently effed up/makes no sense) and unshared folders/subfolders will be red too.

the library should also have a little information telling how many files/folders are being shared and unshared. and how many KB/MB/GB they are sharing and not sharing.

15. on the monitor tab, why does the incoming searches take up SO MUCH DAMN SPACE! if all its going to show me is a streaming list of words that cannot be more than 30 characters long, THEN WHY IS IT SO MASSIVE! it is vertically resizable, yes, but the horizontal needs to be looked at a bit more logically.

16. does the "whats new" feature _really_ have to take up a whole tab?

--this is starting to become a rant lol--

17. azureus has a feature that allows the setting of download/upload speeds on individual files.

18. just download auzureus and try it out... i think you will find many features i havent touched on yet (although a few were just rants lol)

MANY more suggested features i have i have not said here are on this forum but have either been dismissed or overlooked.. or just plain missed. but my lists are far from complete. limewire still has alot to do before im completely satisfied. you can use the search my posts by profile.

[edit - here is my profile of posts: ]

nonsene, what would be needed is a simple download integration of torrents, they even do not need a common partial, just download torrents in limewire with some azureus code and share then the file as well in limewire.
