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.

Kolandromir is flying high

I was leaning on the counter at work the other day, staring blindly at the people using my Kodak Picture Makers (well, one guy was using the FufiFilm APM), when suddenly, the metal ring around the fire suppresion sprinkler directly above me fell from the ceiling and landed on the back of my neck. **** it was cold! and moldy...

okay, it's got nothing to do with anything...

But, I got to thinking....


If Limewire had a kiosk setup similar to the KPM and APM. Where people could download music, video, documents, and software LEGALLY, for a fair price. The proceeds would go directly to the greedy celebs who can't afford to feed their illegitimate children because they barely had the money for the chlorine to clean the north end of their pools...

Instead of relying on the one person in the whole world who has the file you are looking for, but is never online, you could rely on the thousands of others looking for that file . Because, when they find it, not only do they have it LEGALLY, but the kiosk they get it from has it (of course, we're looking at a Terabyte --1,000 GB-- HDD, for like $700 each, to hold all that info). And the central server tracks other searches for the same file, and as more kiosks search....

... more get it. and as more get it, more have it.. and as more have it, the download becomes faster. Now, where once you were victim to the whim of the schedule of the one, you become a stakeholder in the glory that is YOUR schedule, and YOUR time.

With this increased legality would come sponsors. artists, production companies, and others would willfully submit their product, instead of bagging that some hacker/cracker stole their software, and is now distributing to everyone for free! Bad people only do bad things if they know it's bad. If we make it okay, they'll stop.

Another feature of the kiosk: Virus Protection. My bet is that when this thing comes around, LimeWire will hire all of the top protection companies-- Symantec/Norton, Panda, F-Secure, and McAfee, and any others you can think of-- to work together to create the ultimate peice of protective software......
.....And if somebody does get past it, at least it's not on your computer...
No more corrupted files, no more bad .EXEs.

Oh, here's another feature:
Most of the time, when your downloading software (video games (Halo)) your best bet is and ISO file. I have never seen a corrupted ISO, or ISO Virus. But how to open it? IsoBuster? sure. THE KIOSK WILL DO IT FOR YOU (when it burns the CD)!

What about the on-line multiplayer function? you need the updates after-all, but, in most cases you need the disc and product key for that. Well, you already got the CD, so how to get a hold of a real Product ID# Key? THE KIOSK WILL DO IT FOR YOU! During your search, the kiosk would contact Microsoft or Apple (or whoever made the software) and request to key on behalf of you and LimeWire.

I don't know about you, but i think it's a good idea!
1.make file sharing legal
2.shut the greedy celebs up by giving them a boost on their child support. (i'm gonna keep using it because America has a 50% divorce rate, and celebs are not exempt, and they're te ones we go to for all the other scandals....did Katie Holmes even have a baby ?)
3.looking for a song? can't find the CD? Can't afford a computer to download the LimeWire Trial, fail to find what your looking for, use LWT to download a pirate clone of LW-FULL and get it that way? are you just some old fogy who has the program, but the kids never come to visit and explain how to turn it on? if your answer to any one of those question is "yes", then it's a **** good reason to haul-*** down to yer local Wal-Mart (North America ONLY) or Real Canadian Superstore (Canada ONLY) to get help from the self-trained, underpaid schlubs that those corporations lovingly call "our employees"

The LimeWire Legal Sharing Kiosk! Coming soon to a garbage can near you.
Along with the Blue Prints, and the Proposal Memo, and Profitibility Essay...
Kazaa liked it... Napster was exstatic....

oh, didn't realize we had profanity protection...

the first set of asterisks is just the slightly worse form the the d-word, darn, and the second set after the word haul- is merely the 3 letter a-word form for the bodily noun, bottom, refering to ones "cheeks"...
