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 File size filter

It will be really cool if file size filter had at least , at most features
ie somethimes I am searching for a video and it finds hundreds of very small files that are not what I am looking for and they fill up all the search and I dont find what I was looking for .
I will be nice if I can say I want files that are approximately 500MB
and it finds files from 400MB to 600MB. or at least I can spesify a minimum and maximum acceptable file size

Default Yes, What is the word on File Size Queries?

There is SO much SPAM garbage on the network. Some sort of free Ipod website. If I search for anything these guys have spammed the network with tiny little 38k files that are totally irrelevant to the 500MB file I am looking for.

Is there any way to search for a "Filename" and then say it has to be ">200MB" for example? That way all these stupid spammers will be thwarted. I would definitely buy PRO if 1) I had the money and 2) If it had this feature.

Thank you.

I fully agree with you that this needs to be done immediately!!

There should be several options instituted:

In the preference of the program there should be an option to eliminate from the search outcome files that meet a certain size requirements.

2nd: One should have the ability to highlight several files at once and with one right click of the mouse block all the hosts that have those files.

3rd: If one result shows up but with 36 people that have it, at present we are only able to block one. We need the ability to block all.

I hope LIMEWIRE is reading this!!!

Lets put the class back into this program and give the users what they need.

This should be top priority next to security.

Everyone please voice your opinion and other features that you feel merit Limewire to change

Thumbs down

Here's what I love (hate)...

Ever notice you can't set a default sorting on your search results? What's it set for? The most number of files. What has the most number of files on the network? SPAM!

Back in 2000 I think it was I ran the Gnutella program and it had a file size filter. IT'S AGE OLD TECHNOLOGY! Yet Limewire chooses not to implement such a useful feature into their program. Why? Because I bet they want people to see the spam, duh! I suggested almost a year ago these two requests and haven't seen anything remotely close to it happening.

It would be my guess that some Limewire employee or owner actually runs this Ipod spam site and it's in his best marketing interest to not put these features into the program. It's only speculation but what other reason could Limewire have to not actually give the people who feed them something that they want that would be such a cinch to integrate. I wouldn't even bother to make these suggestions. It's obvious Limewire isn't going to implement them.


The only time I actually run Limewire is when I go to bed because it's not even a computer friendly program. It freezes up everything and slows it down so much that I have to exit the program just to open up notepad or a browser window and not wait 5 minutes for the start menu to show. And this is on a 3Ghz P4 with 512mb of DRAM. No other program does this to my computer. I just had to shut it down to compose an email just 20 minutes ago. They hurt their own network by making such a retarded program. I share about 50GB of data that are no longer available to anyone because Limewire eats up too many resources. Shows how intelligent the Limewire programmers really are. And what the hell is this verifying file contents bullshit? It knocks half of the connections out plus the main connections to their network. Yes I’ve done the SP2 patch, blah blah blah. Why don’t you make the program compatible with common operating systems? That would just make too much sense… again. Don’t count on Limewire for sensible features here guys. Watch them delete this post, lol!

03-11-2005 Search Filters & perm sort setting: So I guess that was 8 mths ago. I made a similar request Xtra search option 14 mths ago. I too wish they would hurry & implement some type of filtering. It's well overdue in the present climate of spam & viruses, many of which have only shown up this year.

Your thread about 8 mths ago: 'transfers stop & freezes computer': Quote: "Well I have discovered my problem after a couple weeks. And it's due to a virus or something i found in my temp directory called "Hijack.exe" "
Perhaps you should check again.
Also, using the Resume/Find Sources function on many files simultaneously will have a slowing down effect on your computer, using up its resources & the bandwidth. Some people abuse this tool & then wonder why their computer & the net slows down. So imagine what effect it has on the gnutella network.

Unhappy

It's different this time. That hijack virus made all connections to the internet shut down till I rebooted. Now it's still able to work and download but it slows down everything else. It also seems not be able to calculate the download speed either as each file can be downloading at less than 8kb/s (total of 10 DL) yet the total is over 2,500kb/s which is impossible, lol. Only it renders common usage of other programs virtually impossible unless I want to wait minutes for something that usually takes less than a second without limewire running.

Last year I was running LW Pro 4.8 and it was ok, now 4.9 and it seems to be having these cyber behavioral traits. Even though I've scanned my system with multiple AV and Adaware tools and wiping my hard drive, still makes no difference.

BTW check point 4 I think it is, here WARNING: Viruses on network you should be aware of! there still might be a resident file somewhere (possibly) or damaged files
& also see point 5, & ask Norbie about getting your system back up into shape.
This might be worth a read also: Rootkits *** WARNING ***
