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.

Question 'Launch' starts WMP, not deault mp3 player

The Limewire docs say that pressing the 'Launch' button will open your default player and play the file but when I press it, it opens the file with Windows Media Player.

I first installed Lime on a machine that had WMP set up as the default but that I than changed to another app as default.
Thinking that could be the problem, I installed Lime on a second machine on which I had already installed and made the default Thompson's mp3PRO, but the result is the same.

(I can open the 'shared' folder, click on a file and it *will* open with the default player.)

I switched from WMP because the sound quality of many of the files I was getting was so poor as to be almost unlistenable; once I changed players, these same files were emminently listenable - unfortunately, I had deleted several 'bad' files before I discovered this

Is this a bug in Lime or is there something I'm doing wrong?

TIA
thomas

Default MP3 Players

I read what you had to say about different players and the varying quality, with interest.

I have been using WMP recently (user friendly) but had used RealPlayer before (not user friendly (in my opinion)).

I had a few files that had what could be described as high pitched squeeks - so I deleted them. I d/l them again but some still had the problem.

When I read what you had to say, it prompted me to have a change. So I d/l a newer version of RealPlayer. What a difference - no squeeks on the one remaining file I had that I thought I was going to have to download again.

But to really check this out I tried playing that file again with WMP and guess what - it's OK on that player too now.

The only thing I can think of is that there was a problem somewhere and this new version has fixed the problem in both. Very strange.

I tried launching it and it played OK in there as well.

The sound quality in both players is 100% better.

One thing that I have found - is that when in WMP you switch from the Media Library to Playing Now whilst playing, the squeeks come back, but if you start the track again they go!

So anyway, your post has help me sort my problem out Pity I had deleted some of the files that were bad.

Don't know about the default problem I've not looked at that yet.

Thanks very much

Kath

Smile Default Player

I've tried 3 times to post this - I've had to log out and disconnect and then get back on - it kept throwing me off in the middle.

Hi - sorry I took so long

Associating files

Open - Explorer
then - View
then - Folder Options
then - File Types

A window will open naming all the types of files that you can associate an application with.

If you click on one you will see that it shows each type of file and underneath in 'Opens With' you can type in what application you want to open MP3's

I've not tried this - so check it out carefully - write down all your original settings first.

Goood Luck!

I don't remember this being so messy in Win 3.1 - which is when I last used it.

Kath
