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.

File must be bigger than < input >
File must be smaller than < input >

And not just doing it in the searchbar...

I was downloading some DBGT videos, the filesize was about 60Mb... well i just type in kbytes by Filesize... and it just search in the filename... so that really sucks...
Even though a file size filter has been heavily requested and is the only way to get rid of junk, Limewire still has not done it. The junk filter, even on the strictest setting allows the same files I marked as junk to show up again as not junk. I accidentally started a download of one of these fake tiny files and cancelled it in time. It then showed up in a search with the same word used. There was the icon next to it identifying it as a file I had cancelled in progress. If Limewire can recognize that I cancelled the download of this file, then they certainly can recognize it as the same file I marked as junk. Given these glaring facts, I am faced with an obvious conclusion. Limewire has no desire to get rid of junk. This leads me to a potential motivation on their part. I am not saying this is certain, but I do find it likely. They get paid for this. Their junk filter is garbage and their excuse for no file size filter is that they are working on a spam filter? Please, Limewire, don't bother. Work on a filesize filter. Countless users have requested this.

A discussion I had with one of the LW developers a couple years back was they didn't wish to bring in a size filter for the purpose of spam because spammers would simply make their spam larger. Well, spammers have already started doing this, so I guess that excuse falls by the way side now. The size filter has many purposes & some 'other' gnutella programs do have size filters for search results.

The fact is, it does not matter if someone is searching copyright material or not nowadays, junk will still show up in their search results.

A size filter I think was the first thing I requested in the main Requests thread some years ago.

I do my best to aid. The bitcollider is a wonderful tool. To the best of my knowledge, as long as you do not open the file, it can not harm you. I have been purposely downloading files with no review and then rating them as the crap they are. If they are a good file, I rate them as such. Apparently Limewire will not implement a filesize filter, so I do my part in identifying this to the people who bother to do a Bitzi lookup. I have noticed that a file without the first frame showing up is a fake file. Any legitimate video file should have an icon of the first frame of the video. As long as you have the proper codecs. Which I do.

Calabrese,

Thank you for contributing to the Bitzi database.
I have a few videos that have been edited so that the first frame is black. They play just fine, though I usually chop off the blank so an image will show in thumbnail view.
