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.

Thanks for answering. I still have the problem with slow downloading of audio files and video is somewhat faster but still slow. Here is the into that Gramdpa asked for.

I have a HP Media Center PC. I'm running XP Home
with Media Center. My firewall and antivirus is Synmantec 8. I have 1 gig
of ram and 170 gig free on my hard drive. I'm connected to cable and my
modem is a Terayon Communication System TJ 716X. My local area connection is Realtek RLT8139/810x Family. I'm connected at home using Limewire 4.10.9 Pro and have Java 1.5.0_06. My isp is kuhncom.net and I'm not sharing this connection. I got back your test worked, my connection was true. The speed test had 1649 kbps download and 335 kbps upload. Download transfer rate was 206.1 KB/sec and upload transfer rate was 41.9 KB/sec.

You have said your speeds are slow but you haven't said what speed you are downloading at. How many KB/s are you downloading at ?

How many host do you usually connect to when you are downloading 5,10 ?

MR.VTEC

You should set your speed to cable. Download Unlimited, Upload 25KB/s and yes a pirated copy of Pro could be affecting you Download capabilities.

It may be hacked could contain spyware and or a virus. Unfortunately you never now what you are going to get with hacked software. Actually it is not a smart thing to do. But to each his own.

what tends to happen with me is that it is working fine and it is going at 60 kb/s and then i go away for an hour and return to see it going at 10 kb/s but when i close limewire down and then restart it again it goes back to going at 60 kb/s. is there something wrong or is it just meant ot be like that?

can u tell me what " show incoming searches" is?, is it all of the people that are searching the files you have downloaded?

Default what can i expect?

i used the speed test.
download : 950~Kbps
upload : 92~Kbps

I am currently getting about 120KB when i download, now this doesn't change that much from 1-5 simultaneous downloads, after that it slows down, i thought this was due to the drive head speed limitations, am i right?

Also, being my first ever post, i'd like to ask a long nagging question, and the one to which i even joined this forum for after searching to no avail....
Does Sharing actually help download speeds?
or even connections? the only down point i can fathom, is getting blocked by more zealous users. I need some scientific help to help me choose?! !

Your Max Download speed is 118KB/s which is what you are getting. You should set your Download speed at unlimited and upload speed to 9KB/s And it is not your head speed that is slowing you down it is your connection. You are overloading it. LimeWire has to be able to communicate with the host you are downloading from. If you are maxing out your connection it can not communicate with them.

Does sharing actually help Download speeds. Think of it this way if no one was sharing you wouldn't have anyone to Leach off of.

If it has been more than 6 months since you bought LimeWire Pro and if you did not save the installer to your hard drive, then you will have to pay again if you want Pro. But BASIC is free and you can get it at the link below.
