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.

That's currently not supported by any other client. - When searching for hashes, you could probably reduce the requery interval to 15 minutes or so.
even that would help, better than now

as is if i've got a title in the download window saying requery and it says over 10,000 in secs, i have to research, kill current file and click the same file name again - what about reducing that requery timer back to a smaller level as a choice rather than killing it at all.
if it isn't listed then it could say 'couldn't download' or something like that?

The next version (2.4.0) will show only 300 seconds to the next requery (after 5 minutes it tests if any requery has been sent in the last 45 minutes and if not, sends a requery).

Default not sure if it makes sense - language filter


i'm really excited about audio-books, but for me as a german it is not easy to find these in a specific (my) language. does it make sense to filter requests by language? i think it will, if you could set your language in the tools-options menu.

still sharing...

...what is absolutely nonsens if you can't select your connections to ultrapeers/"servers" by preferred language.

what does this mean to the community?

I would love to be able to connect to ultrapeers in specific countries--for example, I am a big fan of Indian pop music and would be thrilled to find a listing of servers in India that I could hook up to.

Anyway, feature requests: remote browsing, and make incompletes re-search when you doubleclick them instead of playing a preview. Or a popup menu with re-search on it.

Smile Feature? or just more info?

Not sure if this qualifies as a "feature" but,
It would be great if version upgrade info could be added to the LW Pro download pages.

As a LW Pro user I am amazed by the number of LW version "UpGrades"
paraded on my download page...
(I think that there have been about (15) since my original purchase).

Now, realistically(?) are ALL of these version changes right for me and my OS ?

Most other programs I use give me at least a hint as to what is new and what has been fixed
in the latest release version offered.
I have not been able to find any such info (or link to this info) on my Pro download page.
And, I'm thinking that (maybe) the "newest" LW offered may not have anything new for me...
perhaps the fixes are only for PeeCees...
or, just fixes for my Mac...
or, new features that I do not want or need...
or is this a "MUST HAVE" upgrade?

It would be great (to me) if version upgrade info could be added to the LW Pro download pages.
Might this also speed-up our testing of new features and fixes?

Hello Geraldo. As VTOLFreak pointed out, there is a way of using your native media player instead of the built-in player. It might be possible to visually remove our media player if users do this, but I don't think there's a big demand for the feature.

The multi-source downloads you mention have been in LimeWire since 1.9. The ability to add new files to an existing download will be added in LW 2.2.

<a href="">LimeWire PRO</a> is the ad-free, bundled software-free version of LimeWire that we sell for $6. That payment gives you six months of free upgrades and helps pay for future developments.

-Christopher Rohrs
I will directly grab a snippet of a post I had made earlier the other day to the forum:

I messed around
with morpheus and kazaa on the windows xp side and found kazaa to be the best
for me in that category. Until I tried limewire, no other programs in linux
came close! Limewire is #2 overall if I had to compare it with all p2p programs
regardless of OS. LIme Wire could be #1 only if they could get their system to
be able to handle multiple multimedia files (ie avi, mpeg, mpg, divx, mp3, etc)
whether internally with their own player like what kazaa has, or by accessing
an external media program like xine, mplayer, ogle, divx, etc.

That is my view on this matter. Plus the browse host feature, of course, was an added plus to the program. Incorporate these two features and there would be no reason why this program should not be number one on my list!

Talking Add support for OGG Vorbis

I think you should add support for OGG Vorbis into the internal player. It's a great format.. it's all I use.
