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.

Sleepless is just really nice

Great. Looking forward to the results

While you're at it please fix the search function as well (something Google like)

It would trigger far less spamresults

We need it. Not as much for virus or spam as such, but because some are looking for files of a certain size-range.

Me, I like to look for movies that last longer than 15 seconds to two minutes. That means, generally, I have to check 450 of 500 results off the list before I get to the ones I want. With this filter, I could just look at 50 results and get to what I wanted faster.

And how do you actually train the junk filter to sort out specific sizes? I took all files smaller than 10 MB and marked them junk. Then, I hit the movie of Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast about 100 times marking it as Not Junk. The files I had marked had nothing linking it to this file, yet I couldn't learn the filter that the movie wasn't junk.

So, How do you do that? (I know this isn't the place to ask it, nor do I expect answers here. I am just proving a point here, seeing as people say the junk filter works. It doesn't for me, and I really can't figure it out)

Edit: The Iron Maiden movie was about 53MB

Ok, how about adding a "don't stop searching until I cancel" button? I found that if I leave Limewire for a few minutes when I come back it has stopped searching and I have to click "get more results" Maybe in this way when we click on dont stop searching, we would get a "warning" alert when clicking it ststing this may return too many results, or this may freeze you computer, that we have to manually stop the search. What do you think?

Because it would saturate the network with queries & requeries & become slow as heck. I used a program that did that before LW. It could search the entire network (different network) but a single search could take 40-80 mins to complete. Do you really want LW to become like that?

Here's some points worth considering:

Default File Size!

I would vote yes ....but?

what prevents the creators of these files from say....doubling the size?

for instance we know a file size of 197.kb is not a song, but if they change the size to 500.kb or 1000.kb. some songs ARE actually short (or small)

i don't know how they make these files, but i assume because they are all small that that's the most productive? prudent? size? but if they ARE filtered out i'm sure they WILL try something else, or something bigger.

as usual, it's not the "product" so much as the "procurer".

i would love to see all bad (s***) files gone from LW, the only way that will happen is if people stop DL that S***!!!!!

we don't need a filter so much as a ban on idiots that share that crap.

the one filter that we really need is a filter to weed out the dumba**es that use LW.

p.s. if the shoe fits, get off LW, and take your s*** with you!
