Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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

Hello,

LimeWire is a great application!

I need the file size filter..
My examples are like this:

Maximum file size: ______
Minimum file size : ______

I need it because there are 'broken' files with 851.7
Kbytes. These files are not usable.

I hope you guys can make it available!

I can't help feeling you are not the first to ask this

I think for now you will just have to work around the problem and not go for these small sizes which are no doubt much smaller than what you are looking for.

Limewire has a junk filter, which I do not have, but those who have mastered it find it very useful.

I hope this helps. (for now)

Default Get k++

Agreed, this is an OK P2P server but without the size filter, this program is very weak. Is there any add ons or anything that can be found, that will add a size filter to LW?? It's funny when i originally got LW everyone was telling me how much better LW was than Kazaa. I got rid of kazaa and jumped into my * new p2p sharing application and was excited to see what new innovations this program had. My first search was "dvd movies" it pulled up 5 actual dvd movies and the rest (of 500+ found results)were 1-35min movie clips. Unless i am doing something wrong(correct me if I am), I am not impressed at all with this program.I seached for sze filters eveywhere, but unfortunatly i have found nothing.

Well I find the Junk filter works quite well. It's a dynamic filter so you need to train it. It learns bit by bit. But yes, the size filter was my 1st request on the forum roughly 18 months ago. It would be handy for multiple reasons. But remember, if the intention is just to filter out virus, then they will increase the size of the virus.

The network wasn't as full of virus as it is now. There's been a concentrated effort to spread virus & spam by dubious sources over the past 12 months (by autogenerated spamming results.) Particularly the past 6 months.

Why do I get the felling you opened some of those broken files. I hope I am wrong about that but if you did you are now infected with a virus. The files you mentioned 851.7kb are a known virus you might want to check out the link below.

Yep, the file filter helped me with 851.7 ,197.1 ,228.0 so on and so on, but unforunately I've now started getting more and more search results containing nothing but those files. I can't help thinking the largest cause of this problem is the result of LW users that continue to carry these files in their PCs.Go figure.

Yo...Bling

Good idea getting us to vote on this much needed feature, goodness only knows why the LW programmers have turned their collectives backs on this request which has been constantly asked for over the past two or so years.

Default to bad

Well what I feared is coming to pass. I've done a number of searches and came up with nothing but viriuses. At the rate the 197.9 files and it's like are spreading I'm afraid that LimeWire will soon be rendered useless. That's to bad.
