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.

If you leave a search tab up, you can right click (or command click as the case may be) and research using the same search terms.

Thank you for replying. Yes I know that you can redo the search tabs. But If I want to reformulate the search; i.e. add words, delete words, etc., I have to retype it all over again.

Sometimes I have a list of searches I want to remember and I would like to be able to cut and paste. It it easier on my back; where repeated reaching to type, especially on a laptop, is very painful.

Does that make sense? Most programs have cut and paste and delete features--they are as old as the sun and should be very simple to implement.

I think Limewire should add this editing feature for us older folks.

stief has a spectacular aura about

pam--there's a preference for "autocomplete" which should be turned on by default. This cuts down on some on the retyping. THe keyboard commands for copy and paste will work in the search box, but you can't click on results, for example, and copy those.

Apparently an edit menu is very difficult to implement in java programs.

Well, I would like a better Library organization but also a better skin. I love some of the skins in Shareaza but I don't like the program. If LimeWire had some awesome skins, different from the theme it has right now, that would be awesome.

Question Kill DownLoad

I would like to be able to customize the window when you right click in
the downloading section.
I have found that if the 'Kill Download' was further down I would not kill a dnld by accident in my haste to 'force dnld' selections.

Also, I have found that when you specify a certain level of sharing for those up-loading--it does not have any affect--doesn't work in (VER 4.8.0)

Exclamation What I'd like to see in limewire

1. The option to see the 'Explore' option enabled on any file being downloaded, or in any window being viewed that contains media files.

2. I would like to see LimeWire remember my "view "settings in my search window. I like to view my columns by "File Size" and I find it annoying to have to select this with every search I make. It would also be nice to see LimeWire remember this when it is loaded. An option like this would make LimeWire more enjoyable for me to use.

3. I would also like to see the before-mentioned "BitRate" displayed next to the media files as I used to judge which particular files I wanted to download by the quality of the media.

i want to be able to fast-forward and rewind in the actual limewire window. I know its possible to open it with windows media or w/e it would just be so much more convenient. I am surprised no one else has already said this...

Exclamation Patience

For this user, I have a nifty quote:

Patience is not a virtue --- Dealing with computers it is a necessity.

How anyone bothers to wait two or three days for a download to START, I have no idea. If it's a HUGE file that has started to download and your bandwidth (and the bandwidth of those uploading) tells you it will take days, ok. But to START?

Feature I would like: I share almost anything I download. From the Library it would be nice to have a drag-and-drop function for the completed files to be sent to one of the shared folders I use to keep myself up-to-date on where they are. (Category folders like Music, Long movies, Short movies, Pictures, Sexpictures, Cool Stories, etc.)

I would like to see an option to download a short section of a video clip to preview to avoid hours of download of porn or crap. eg A steve Irwin search produced about 20 hits - mostly porn and the actual tape is still in the coroners hands.
