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.

Smile suggestion:freeloaders

As known there are a lot of freeloaders.I think that limewire sould have a filters set by the user that will totally stop freeloaders.The filters couls be by by the number of files and/or the total size of the files the uploaders shares.Don't you think it's a good idea?

Definitely not. Selfishness hardcoded into the software
actually drives away new users before they can get
comfortable and become contributors. The first few hours or
days are when people decide whether to stay or leave.

Gnutella is a sharing network, not a trading floor.

"Freeloaders" represent only 13% of the network right now
[down from above 30% over the past few years, by the
way], but those are the people who bring growth and new
files to the network. If we start finding excuses to exclude
some of the people some of the time just for numbers, we'll
inevitably end up with widespread cheating and billions of
junk files in our searches.

Also, don't forget the thousands of people who simply
cannot risk sharing yet. Someday they might get the chance.

My mistake - but it does allow you to type in a number files that have to be shared before you are not considered a freeloader. If you are really freaked by the thought someone might "steal" from you set it to a couple of hundred

Then sweat over your uploads list, every time someone had the audacity to try to get a file off you, search the IP address that shows up and then kill em if they dont have what you consider to be a reasonable "share portfolio"

Or you could just take it easy and share what you are comfortable with sharing, knowing you are doing the right thing by other users, and not get an ulcer over something you can not control.

it's not a good idea, I'n not a free loader, I have more than 1,ooo files to share and i Download a lot more of that. but when i started fresh, I was a freeloader. The same i picked from LW was thw same that i share in LW, then i realize that i have to look outside LW and bring some new material in.

How many of you realize that theres a lot of the same files, theres nothing new, no body is bringing nothing new in. THATS A FREELOADER. a person thats shares the same files he pick up in LW.
