Moderators

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 Unsharing files without unlisting them

When sharing it allows you to share folders, sub-folders, and files. When unsharing only able to unshare folder, thus unlisting it entirely from the library. You can individually open each folder and unshare files this way keeping the folder listed in the library, (lot of work with large quantity of files) But A nice feature would being able to unshare files however selected and still see the folders listed in the shared file column. (My preference because I like the way the limewire library is set-up.) I could leave them shared always to solve this, but seems like the request may be simply done? If could be done I would be more apt to share more files, knowing at my desire I could easily unshare them with a lot less work!

hello mattsters2 if you dont want to share any files go into tools press the uploads section and go to slots change this to zero and also number of people allowed to upload to zero then with the bandwith indicator move it across to the left with your mouse when you have done this press the apply button then exit limewire restart limewire and even though your files say shared nobody will be able to upload from you even though lw is a file sharing program

Seems like not sharing any files defeats the purpose of a file-sharing network.

mattsters2 could copy LW's library setup to another directory.

The easiest way to stop Sharing your files without messing with the LW Library, is to click the Library tab.
Now Left Click on First File and hold down while Dragging the mouse down. This should Highlight the Files as you Drag.
Once the Files are all highlighted, Right Click and a small pop up screen will appear. Click "Stop Sharing File". The Unshared files will turn Red.
You will still be able to play the files even though they are not shared.

Hey Ironhorse, Firstly, Thanks for your help here on the Forums.
As Far as Sharing goes, Everyone has a reason they either Share or don't Share. Personally I don't use LW but my son does. Do I let him share Ummm....I use Torrents and yes I Seed and have a Ratio well over 2.5 so as you can imagine it's really up to the Individual and how secure they feel being a Pirate. Arrgh Matey LOL

Try this. Go to Start > Search > All Files/Folders. Now type in a Audio File that you know you have and click Search. This will give you the Path that you will Put into LW.

You'll need to Point LW to the Path of your shared/saved folder. Mine for instance is L:\Shared.
Go to Tools > Options > Saving. Now, type in the path where it says... "Choose Folder for Saving Files" Apply > OK

Hope this Helps.

Figured it out later that morning, Went to search, view my shared files, then can select as many files as I want, right click, stop sharing. Still listed the folder. My preference is to share the most current files, or good classic, or the smaller pdf 's. I usually monitor the amount of uploads of all files and share the popular one's. The zero one's I'll usually quit sharing. Mattsters2

I Share around 9,000 files at present. Due to the way the gnutella network works with (mindblock, can't think of right word) *edit= 'swarm', it means some days I get mostly video uploads, some days mostly audio uploads, some days a particular artist, etc. It can really vary, so don't judge upload popularity on just a few sessions, but over a long period of time. I share both popular & rarer files. After all, if nobody or less people shared the rarer files then they'd be impossible to obtain or more difficult to get. This upload behaviour is also true with many less shares btw.
