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 How about this..

How about making resume downloads work. Queing and all the rest will not make that much different if everytime you lose connection or log out etc you have to start downloading again. The forums are screaming for this to work. PLEASE!

I may be taking this comment out of context, and if I am, please forgive me. I take offense to this comment. It is understood that it is cheaper for Europeans to get broadband modems, but on this side of the pond, broadband is anywhere from $40 to $60 in my area, compared to dial up which is $10 to $25. The majority of us would be more than happy to get DSL or cable, but my dad's a contractor and we're unable to afford the luxury of the broadband modem. You choose broadband because it's cheaper for you than dial up, we're on a dial up modem because broadband is outside of our budget.

Default What feature would YOU like?

I am most interested in being able to browse others' computers (a great way of discovering music I never would learn about otherwise). Remote DL queuing and dynamic results sorting would also be nice.

I prefer my own audio/video player software. Nor do I use LimeWire's library feature, as I generally listen to tunes once, then burn them onto a CD to make room for more DLs. My music player sorts files adequately.

Other requests:

I would like to set column widths ONCE in the search window display and have them show up that way in all searches. I know what fields I'm interested in!

Better file naming for Mac users please? Rather than hack off the end of the filename, which usually contains the song title, how about hacking off the beginning?

Question what about ip grouping

What about a (ip grouping) feature for those people who have ten million songs of one artist? You know, to tidy up and compress the search results. There is one already for grouping the same named songs, why not add a feature like that? I think that would be a nifty little addition.

Definitely, (2), being able to see what other files a given host has on their machine. It's a great way to find new stuff that you might enjoy.

Default Feature update

Hi everyone. Just want to update you on the features we're planning for future releases. First of all, resumed downloads should work properly in 2.3.0, which is now in <a href="">beta</a>. (Ok, that's a bugfix, not a feature!)

Of the features listed in the poll, browse host and remote queueing are definitely the most popular. Browse host has already been started and should be done in a release or two. Remote queueing is we work on HUGE and HTTP/1.1 download support. We think this will have a bigger impact on downloading performance. And as always, we're tweaking ultrapeers to get better search results.

Thanks for good feedback!

Unreachable IP

I would like to be able to exclude unreachable IP addresses under the Search quaification options section... I periodicaly get a wrath of non-routable IP addresses (IE 10.x.x.x 192.x.x.x). Since I can't get to them there is no reason to display them in the search results window . . . right?

Mouse Wheel
It would be nice to enable the use of a mouse wheel for scrolling.

I have been using Llimewire for a year or so and have tried the leading competing products.... I prefer Limewire... I am a registered 2.2.4 user and the last few releases appear to produce much more reliable results... great product!!!

If you install java Runtime 1.4 , the mouse wheel is supported ...
So what are you complaining for that ?

About the IP's I totally agree .
Those 10. addreses really annoy me .
I can list them following IP so that the stupid addreses are down the list but then I can't sort them by size and such .
