Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

There's always Bitzi. You can check out a file before download & if it's been rated, you'll get an idea of content & quality. A file with heaps of sources but no bitzi rating is quite possibly crap.
How to use Bitzi

You can also preview the file after, say, 5% download. If it's not what you want... bin it

Personally, I hope that tape stays under lock & key. How revolting for his family, to have that floating around on the net.

Cool C'mon Dude, P2P nets are infested

I'd like a function like reporting a file with virus, so, when you download a file and you scan it with your anti-virus and it reports a virus, then report the infected fle to the gnutella servers, so no one will download that infected file, or make it to have a mark saying it's infected, and help keeping the P2P networks a little cleaner, shouldnt WE do IT?

Sleepless is just really nice

Gnutella doesn't use servers. It's decentralised. Or rather it has millions of servers (one for every user). Does it still seem like a good idea ??

Default Please give us better search filtering

466 results, and not a valid song track among them, much less the one I was searching for.

Audio Search (title): "hundred feet away"

30 TOTALLY HIP TRACK (feet) wma 1,629 KB
30 Top of Charts (feet) wma 3,981 KB


At least let us export all of the fields LimeWire can capture, including the ones that are only displayed in the tooltips, for all of the search results, to a text file that we can search ourselves.

Also, why does a search by artist find tracks that a search by title misses, and vice-versa, even though the text of the result appears to match both? Not very confidence-inspiring!

All I see in the junk results are the keywords I entered and common words like "track", "eighties", and "classic". Obviously, it would be stupid to throw away results that contain ONE of these words, especially when searching for rare items. If there is a way to exclude files that contain specific phrases or multiple words with the junk filter, I haven't found it. Please tell me how to do this.

I know you have heard this before, but I agree that your player is a little lacking. On my system it has severe lag. It isn't a problem really though since I use an alternate player as well. Additionally I would very much like to see dynamic result sorting. I do have some other simple ideas that might be applied, though I am not sure how useful they would be for others or if I might seem silly for even suggesting them, but here goes. First, as I sometimes have to play with spellings for my searches, if I could toggle a "Do not reset" button on my search column it might save me a little time. Additonally, an "exact match only" option might be integrated into the search column for those times that you know exactly what you want. Lastly, I would really like to have some way of getting spam out of my results (porn sites posing as music, screensavers, etc.). They are easy to identify since their file sizes are small and often the results numbers are very high, but they add clutter. Overall though, I have been getting a lot of great use from the system and am grateful for it. Thanks.

Oh Yeah, when we preview lets have some controls on it. I see that another post mentions this and I think it is a darn good idea.

Lightbulb Meeeeee NEXT

Ok My Turn
1.A kb rate is a good idea because it will be like kazaa where you can see how many you have left to download insteed of a percentage. That is a good idea.

2.Makeing some new skins would be nice

3.Something with the chatroom on LW i never used it but some people say there's dont work that woulld problee be a good idea to fix it so it works with all users .

4.And maby trying to make it use less MEM would be nice for the one's that dont have 512 or higher.And probly useing less MEM would probly make it start up faster.

5.would be try to make it start up faster instead of like kazaa where kazaa is really slow when it starts i dont use kazaa any more but they turned to Crap

This is my five point a genda
