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.

Default Re-search

I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to right-click on the results tab and see 'Search Again' as an option. Also, could you use a tooltip to show the search category for the tabs? That would be great to know what type of search each one was.

Enable CMD-C copy, CMD-V paste and CMD-A Sellect all. All are needed to keep track of "Upload Names" (on the Monitor Page) in order to create log and keep track of most popular uploads (mp3's etc).

Lightbulb upload auto cut-off

I think there should be a feature to cut-off very slow uploads. often my limewire gets caught with six people uploading at .5k / sec or even 0; this reduces the number of slots for people that can actually get content from my machine quickly.

Default slow uploads

Slow uploaders don't necessarily waste upload slots. Check out the options in your tools->options->uploads window. LimeWire will initially give out "start upload slots" uploads. Then, as long as there's enough bandwidth, it will continue to give out uploads until it reaches "max upload slots". Be careful not to set "start upload slots" too small, our LimeWire won't be able to tell whether it's you or the downloader that's run out of bandwidth.

Default another upload auto cut-off question

Thanks for the tip; my upload slots were a bit low. But i have another question: the people that are constantly uploading at 0 or .5 k/s get their file only after many hours; this is one of the complaints of new users that the gnutella network is slow. Most people usually download from another host if the connection is slow; many people don't. Wouldn't it be a good idea to prevent these slow connections in the first place to encourage people to download only from those who they have a fast connection to? For instance, right now there are two people trying to upload from me at 0 k/s; my concern is that these people will never get their file because they are stuck on my slow upload.

LimeWire tries hard to swarm downloads from multiple sources whenever possible. So one slow download doesn't mean the whole file will be downloaded slowly. Future versions of LimeWire will try even harder to find faster locations.

None of the features you presented. they are all needless in my opinion, except perhaps the remote queuing.

first: HUGE or any other hash-enabling protocol.

second: auto-resuming that actually works.

do you actually enable multisourcing for modem users by now? if not, than that is definitely number three.

Abaris: HUGE is actually one of our top priorities at the moment, and will likely be included in 2.3. (No promises!) "Browse host" is a really easy one, so that will probably be included as well. Remote queueing may or may not be delayed somewhat in response to some skepticism that it will actually help the user experience.

As for resuming: it really does work, if you try to download a file with the exact same name and size. But we understand that this this is not intuitive. In the future, we will likely add the ability to select incomplete files in the library, right-click, and have LW automatically resume, initiating new searches if needed.

Swarming is typically not effective for modem users because their downstream capacity is less than that of most uploaders. This causes modem users to tie up upload slots needlessly. Of course LimeWire has had dynamic upload slot allocations since 1.9, but there are still lots of older clients out there.

Thumbs up backbones connections and blocking hosts

I like John Blackbelt Jones ideas about blocking hosts except for some subnets / backbones domains or IP.

Would be greate for eg university networks with speeds like 2,5 Gbit/s and 10 Gbit/s (sunet/nordunet), or for better crawling in northern Europe, and to get rid of all american modem users and theirs futile attempts to download iso-files.

/Mutatis mutandis
