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.

Default Lime wire Harmful to my computer!!

I recently had no choice but to uninstall lime wire as it has had numerous malicious effects on my computer.

The first most important issue is that it constantly automatically downloads files into my hared folder, and with having a fairly fast DSL connection and very little space left on my hard drive you can see what effect this will have on my computer, filling up the hard drive in no time at all.
I have recently uninstalled lime wire but this problem still exists and I know this problem is down to lime wire as it started when I installed it and I have no other program that is capable of downloading that amount of files onto my computer. I think this problem may be associated with the “ultra peer” function but disabling this has had no effect what so ever.

Secondly Since I installed lime wire the CTRL ALT DEL function does not work, I’m am not sure if this problem is associated with lime wire but I consider it highly likely as after I first started up lime wire all these problems came to light. If it is nothing to do with lime wire it self it is most likely off one of the thousands of files that lime wire has downloaded onto my computer against my will which could have easily been some sort of spy ware or harmful application.

Thirdly Lime wire continuously used to start it self up even after I configured the settings to prevent it to but yet it still did.

I have uninstalled this program using the add/remove function and deleted all the files I could find associated with lime wire but I have no success in regaining the CTRL ALT EL function or stopping lime wire downloading thousands of files onto my computer which are all about 800kb each which takes up a fair amount of hard drive space when it is all added up.

I find these problems to be harmful to my computer, very irritating and would like some solution to them as quickly as possible.

The reason for your problems is a virus. See LimeWire continually Popping up every few seconds & also Opening at System Startup Also check out the sticky about Virus warning at the top of this section.

Default A FLAW IN YOUR THESIS.

I AM NOT TRYING TO BE IN-SENSITIVE. I WILL GIVE YOU THE BEST SOLUTION. BUT UNDERSTAND THAT "LIMEWIRE" HAS NOT DOWNLOADED OR DONE ANYTHING TO YOUR COMPUTER. "YOU" HAVE. IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO CLEARLY UNDERSTAND YOUR PROBLEMS. FROM WHAT I GATHERED, YOU DO NOT HAVE A VIRUS. IT IS MOST LIKELY A BAD INSTALL. THE LIMEWIRE APPLICATION HAS A HISTORY OF BAD INSTALLATIONS ON THE LINUX STACK. AGAIN, THAT IS NOT DUE TO LIMEWIRE SOFTWARE,RATHER, YOUR PC'S JAVA ENVIROMENT BEING BAD OR OUT DATED. THIS HAS HAPPENED TO MY LADY FRIENDS BROTHER. ALMOST IDENTICAL SYMTOMS. YOUR BEST BET IS TO BACK YOUR DATA UP AND RE-INSTALL. IF YOUR RUNNING XP, THIS WILL BE CAKE. ONCE YOU DO, MAKE SURE YOUR JAVA ENVIRONMENT IS FULLY UP TO DATE. THIS USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN (NOT ACCUSING YOU) A LIMEWIRE USER USES LIMEWIRE TO DOWNLOAD PRO WITHOUT JAVA RUNTIME. THE SYMPTOMS USUALLY SHOW UP RIGHT AWAY. SERVES THEM RIGHT. TRY NOT TO IGNORE YOUR LIMEWIRE .EXE WARNINGS. RUN PROTECTION SOFTWARE FOR AN EXAM OR PEEK. IF YOU DO THIS, YOU WILL BE FINE. ALSO, IF YOUR RUNNING ITUNES PC, YOU MUST MAKE SURE YOUR RAM IS WELL OVER THE MINIMUM LIMIT. DUE TO THE FACT THAT ENABLING ITUNES IMPORTING WITHIN LIMEWIRE IS JUST BEGGING FOR TROUBLE IF DON'T HAVE THE RAM TO PUSH ITUNES. I FEEL FOR YOU AND GOOD LUCK. I HOPE THIS WILL HELP.
