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.

Angry Remove the retarded features and replace with smart ones

I had mentioned this in another post somewhere on this site but I can't find it so I'll just mention it here.

I was talking about specifying the option where you right click on a file in your downloads window with no sources, click search and put an option where you do a search for this same file. If I'm searching for an mpg file. and it searched for the file name only, no extention, no file size or anything like that, I get zip files, exes, ect. In other words everything that has nothing to do with the file I'm looking for. I even seen something where you can search for the frame width or heighth? Just one or the other?!?! So I picked one and got the most bizarre results. Mostly 0.03kb files and type that I've never seen before and certainly nothing close to the 600mb so someone please tell me why does LW put useless features in limewire?

I was reading their user guide and it says, "Need More Sources: LimeWire attempted to make a connection, but failed to find sources for the file. It is unlikely that further attempts to download from this source will be successful. (TIP: Initiate a new search for the file. Any new sources found will automatically be added to the list of sources for that file.)" So why not add this to the right click menu, just search for the file name and type, this one being video not archive! Why not just make the searches smart, like Ares does? Here's a snapshot I took to show you what I mean.

That network doesn't crash or have any problems because of actually specifying what you're looking for plus you don't see tons of garbage files either so why does LW have such a problem with implimenting smart search features (most other P2P do without problems, nor do you have to pay for it) that just make plain smart, common sense?

Need More Sources: Perhaps LW could make like WinMX and auto search the file every 30 minutes or something instead of just sitting there when there could be available files. Why must LW users have to babysit their downloads? I'm sure someone can come up with an excuse, and that's all that they are. LW is just plain retarded.

I've had files that say awaiting sources, so I did a file search for that file and there were over 30 hosts with it and it started right away. I tried clicking resume prior to that and it had said, connection, then back to awaiting sources. Again! Retarded lack of functionality and usefulness.

5 files are downloading, and one finishes, verifying files knocks the connection completely down and 2 files stop downloading and half of the hosts are lost on the rest of the files and some are back waiting on busy hosts. Another retarded feature. THe Limewire company just doesn't think much do they?

I don't quite get what you are talking about there was no file size search option in WinMx. When you did a search in WinMx you got the same kind of varied results you do with LimeWire. Yes the auto search feature did work a little better in WinMx than it does in LimeWire but not much, The auto search function works most of the time and if a file sits there to long waiting on sources it isn't that difficult to do a manual search.

From another post by Morb
I easy can have over 100 files in my download window. Most are usually paused as a "wish list" and about 15 are active and 5 are set to download.
Maybe you should do a little reading on configuring and using LimeWire and you might get better luck with completing downloads. Or you can just go back to WinMx the link below will take you to the patch for WinMx.

I'll help you "get it" then.

In WinMX if you had a download that had no sources you could right click and have WinMX search for alternates where the only results you would find where the ones with the exact byte size match, plus file extention. When I have used this function I would never get any results that were not the file I was searching for. Limewire has hundreds, sometimes thousands of results and not one file that matches the file I'm looking for. This is why I deemed it "retarded searches" vs. "smart searches". I apologize if I had confused you.
