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.

Brandan, try clicking Refresh in the Library section after making changes. That should reload all the shared files.
That will probably do it. I completely forgot about the library tab.

I can't check right now, though. I shut down yesterday and haven't been able to load past the "Upgrade to Pro" dialog since then. Error is:

Assertion failed: (lock & JAWT_LOCK_ERROR) == 0, file CBanner.cpp, line 36

I'll keep hacking unless someone can tell me what's changed.

You can select your shutdown option from Tools/Options/Shutdown
Yes, but if I want the ability to minimize to the system tray, then both the default close button in the top right and the "Close" function of the file menu will minimize, and then I have to shutdown through the context menu of the system tray icon. I just think there should be an "Exit" function available to shut down the application regardless of the selection of the above option. This is infinitesimally trivial, but maybe the developers could knock it out one afternoon when things are moving slowly. Or maybe I'll get the source sometime.

Thanks,

Brandan L.

There are occasions where I am looking for a given song by a given artist... I have found that typos and outright misspelling cause results to be erratic... so if I know the song is by say, Jackson Browne, I do a 'net' search for Jackson Browne and the would be able to search/filter the results for the song or fragment of song.
i'd like a retine search option too. possibly on the tab down like repaet search add 'refine search '
can remind us why and or " " & - [not] can't be used or added

example: b**tles *or* W*ngs *not* cover
*"J*t Plane"*

just an idea using *'s to enclose the meta-words

*and* must have both
*or*
*not*
*[* *]*

any comments welcome... hey trying to help...

Exclamation NO to video player

I think that even the built in mp3 player/library is a waste of time. Other programs are available which will organize/play your files, and they do it better than Limewire.

A program shouldn't try to be a jack-of-all-trades. Limewire should concentrate on downloading files and that's all. Time spent on other things is time not spent improving the p2p client,
and that's bad.

Trying to be all things to all people is impossible, you'll just end up mediocre in all categories.

Totally agree. Limewire should concentrate on *downloading files* and nothing more.

mp3......winamp
avi.........media player
mov......quicktime
mpeg....media player
wav......mediaplayer


etc, etc

Its been requested before but I want to add my voice;
BRING BACK NUMBER OF HOSTS!!!!!
I bought Limewire Pro (back when it was $15 I might add), but have since reverted to an older version specifically so I could have this feature.
It makes no sense to start a search if you haven't even connected to anyone!

The network topology doesn't allow for LimeWire to calculate the number of hosts you can reach anymore.

Default number of hosts

i use my most recent version and only get number of host by going to statistics. it is there, but a prolbem to get to. real hassle.
limewire CAN determine number of currently connected hosts.
some folks it would seem really want people to rather not consider that... but then these could be the same ones that gave certain individuals bots to spam other users... can't tell how many are on without a hassle, somebody(s) got a bot(s) that takes qeries and renames spam files as those query parameters .

hey, if it can't measure why do older versions do it, and if ya twist your way through it statistics tells you?

why not just put it up front?

are the guys who got the bots paying limewire? if not why not?
they spam the network, they might as well compensate limewire...

1. we can get our own players/viewers/etc
2. we want number of host
3. we want browse host shared files
4. i for one am sick of bot spammers
5. anyway to block out certain ip's from search results [currently only blocks chat - i would like to give those twits a piece of my mind.]
