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.

Not only that, but unscrupulous people like the MAFIAA would seize on the
capability and get courts to force developers to pervert it to their own ends.

This is why control must be left to the individual and collective operations must
be kept voluntary, like Bitzi.

Upcoming anti-spam and anti-malware capabilities will be user operated, and it
will be up to users to decide whether or not to trust the various sources of
the blocklists they can find.

My feelings exactly.......It's called self-reliance and or individual responsibility.
People now days just seem to want way to much done FOR them in lieu of taking care of it themselves. Just give me the tools..I'll do it myself. I don't intent any offense by this post so please don't take any.

None taken. We all want the same thing here, and I'm perfectly happy to use the tools myself. I'm just thinking about the software and possible ways it could be improved, but yeah, I see where you're coming from.
I suppose I'm just trying to find ways around that, as it would make Limewire more "professional" and modern security wise. Could such a service be made optional, thus still volentry? That way, the legal route would seem less appealing as it could just be turned on/off, and even if the legal route was taken over the automatic downloading, it could be used to market limewire as a safe/secure way to distrubute music legally for users that would be worried by the prospect of ilegal downloads. Those less worried could just turn the service off. Or if it even got to that stage it would be well within your rights to make it a subscription service for the users of the professional software only, thus killing it off as no one would want it.

I have a feeling it's just one of those arguments I'm not going to win though, so I'll go back to the drawing board!

Default Junkrating ???

This makes me have to ask why the junkrating on many GOOD files in my searches have a junkrating of 15-35 % ??

In the whole time that the junkfilter has been in the program I have marked 3 134.4 KB files as junk and maybe 10 of the 851.7 KB ones. Then why would the junkrating show on 700 MB files that I know are good ?? Shouldn't that be 0% then

All these files are good:

Better make that 51%

Been thinking about this size filter and I don't think it would work. I am seeing search results that include my exact search string as the file name or embedded in it. If the spammers can write code that takes my search and pastes it into the filename of their trash, what is to stop them writing code that would return random sizes or from padding that trash to random sizes?

It's in Phex and is working quite good there I might add. Not that I use Phex much but I've tried it

Sounds good then Sleepless. They will probably work around it in the long term tho.
I am now wondering if the host blocking might work better, if there was a list of bad sites that could be centrally maintained so it wasn't abused?

There is.

AaronWalkhouse is working on getting the programmers to have Limewire support the importing of lists.

Sounds like it may be possible allready in the next major version. (pretty soon)
