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.

Do you want to view them on your home computer? Using the net to transfer the files a second time can be a very complex task. Instead of trying to remotely connect with the work computer over the internet, just burn them to CD or put them on a zip disk.
If you don't have a CD burner or a zip drive, you could make a serial or parallel port connection by physically connecting your home computer to the work computer. This would take a while to transfer, and you would have to bring your computer to work.

Yes, a zip should work just fine. :-) There are two disk capacities I know of: 100 MB and 250 MB. Even the 100 MB are perfectly acceptable. Since your average higher fidelity MP3 is about 5 MBs, you could fit nearly 20 songs on one disk at a time.

A note about zip compression:
MP3s are already compressed using the Mpeg Layer 3 format. You will not gain more than 1 or 2 % of space by compressing the songs into a zip archive. Movie downloads are also compressed (one would hope!), so they won't need zipping either. Most other downloads, such as Jpeg images and executable program installations, can benefit to some degree from file compression, though they are already set to go in a slightly lower compression ratio.

I have done this I just make sure that I have one or 2 of the same
servers connected, then I search for the files that I am looking for, but first I put a file in my share directory called AndyisReallyAComputerGeek and search for it.. sometimes it takes a while to find it then I just do a browse host for the files that I reallywant. or if I know the address for the computer that I want to connect to I just do a manual connection to it. Ok so now Ill have 20k people tring to download the file AndyisReallyAComputerGeek grin ..

Angry I have done ZIP transfering, but it doesn't work

I have the same problem. I want to transfer all the songs I have downloaded on one computer to another computer. I have copied files onto a zip disk and it works just fine, except half of my files, when i look at their icons in the limewire/shared folder, states, the name of the artist/song, and is then followed buy a #number. These files will don't transfer onto my zip disk. What is this problem, how do I fix it?

Default incomplete files

Lisa: Filenames followed by a # are incomplete downloads. Just delete them. As for why they won't transfer to your zip disk, I have no idea...that's really weird.

Smile transfering incomplete songs to other computer using ZIP

Thank you so much for answering me back before. I now understand what the #s mean after the song title, and I understand that completely. And I also know that YOU don't know why those songs won't transfer onto a ZIP, but do you know HOW I could find out. And, is there any way to avoid from downloading a song that won't be completed, because a majority of my songs are like that, and I don't mind, really, it's not that imcomplete, but I don't want to delete ALL those songs, if you know what I mean. Once again, thank you for responding.

Lissa

oh yah - if I find out the answer, I will be glad to tell you and everyone else, because I"m sure that someone else has the same problem.
