Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

I've been a longtime LimeWire fan, and have always been a freeloader.

I want to allow people to be able to download off me, but first I want to insure the safety of my PC.

So recomend any programs to help protect my computer's privacy/security please.

Thanks!

The best thing i can tell you is to only allow for one folder to be shared through Limewire and no more for music you wish to share.

Default Protection & Privacy

Hi Neruth

I'll say this, I am paranoid about my privacy.

I use the following to keep my PC free of unwanted intrusion and anything else that wants to screw it up.

1) Firewall - I use Norton Personal Firewall 2005, difficult and sometimes unwieldy but it works. Configure it properly and it will keep most things out.

2) Anti-Virus - I also use Norton Anti Virus 2005, this version now auto-scans tmp files created when surfing the web and those created by your windows apps.

3) Prevx Home V2.0 - This stops secret installations and your core system being tampered with.

http://www.prevx.com/prevxhome.asp


4) PeerGuardian 2 (beta 6) - When using LW (or LW Pro) your port 6343 is opened and all sorts of organisations come crawling in, PeerGuardian stops them. PG is an IP blocker and blocks these organisations (Government, domestic and foreign computer companies, US local and city councils, fake files services, etc.) at the IP level.

If you install this product, check the logs to see what I mean, you will be surprised at the amount and types of organisations coming into your PC along side you search results. In addition, I guarantee that you will never use LW again without using PG2.

I also use Javacool's SpywareBlaster V3.4 and SpywareGuard V2.2.

Well, I hope this helps in your quest to maintain your privacy.




UK Bob

PS. Remember, when you surf the web you can't hide your IP address.

Okay, UK Bob, where have you been all my life?!!! I was concerned about the port, thanks for the heads up on that, by this time next year, we'll all be IT security experts! I've got Norton Internet Security 2005 as well, like you said, can be a little twitchy at times, but does the job. I also like Sygate's Personal Firewall (it's free) for personal use, go to www.sygate.com.
