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.

See How to Share Folders (click on link)
In order to extract ones you have to your computer, see these links: 1. & also
2. (a) or/& also (b)
After extracting to your computer you'll then need to convert the VOB files to avi/mpeg 4/divX/mpeg 2.
Most people shrink them down to 700-800 MB or else split them into 2-3 parts of such size to maintain as much quality as possible.

If you have the software capable of producing DVD movies on your computer, then it shouldn't be too difficult to share them. My only problem is that I don't have a DVD-RW or the software that goes with it. I only have a CD-RW.

i am a total novice.--but everything i download when using limewire,i clear the inactive which transfers it into my library.I then go to my library and find it--eg audio- video-etc.When i find the file i want,then i click on that file,and drag it onto my desktop-by moving limewires page accross a little to see what i am doing.Once on my desktop,i then scan it for virus,then iright click and send to-d drive.the wizard does the rest for me.I am sure its easier than that -but like i said--im a novice,-try of luck,cause im not having much myself at the moment.regards-onra

Default red titles

Hi Guys,

I'm new and I have a simple question that probably everyone can answer. I see some of the titles in my library are red. Does this mean that I've downloaded illegally or a song that's copyrighted?
When I first got Limewire, I set my downloads to all and I can download and listen to all the songs on my PC but I tried to burn a CD and it errors out (several tries). I don't want to steal songs and if this is my problem, maybe someone can tell me how to change my settings rather than me searching through Help, etc.

Titles in red aren't being shared. Try refreshing the library page, or right click on a file > share file. Restarting LW should also fix things.

What program are you using for burning & what does the error message say??

If you dont know how/ dont want to burn on limewire just transfer your files into another folder and use it on a different program you're more familiar with, maybe itunes or mediaplayer? Just go to the the library tab and in the bottom left click the explore button. Then just click and drag your files to wherever you wish.
