Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you.

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


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.

Ive seen newbies use their emails for screen names. Emails are constantly posted in topics.

I, personally would not want everyone to know my e-mail address. I don't know why people are always posting them in the forum. It would be best if they just came back to check the thread they made the next day or later, imo.

Hey I know this is off the topic, but do you (or anybody) know of an option Limewire (may) have requiring a username and password to log in and then a log out option as well? Think it would be great if you have kids especially. Thanks.

susanna is flying high

I really need some help here guys, I have experienced a problem with what I think is Limewire. Several weeks ago I download what I thought was Limewire only to get 360 share Pro. I double checked at that time that I had "pushed the right buttons " and every time I punched in it came up 360 share pro. I downloaded the programme fully believing it to be limewire and up until yesterday was quite satisfied. Yesterday, however, the programme became inactive, informing me that it was currently connecting to the network. I left the pc on all night thinking that there might be a problem with the site but it was the same this morning. I decided to contact their support team ( I did'nt know I had to be a Sherlock Holmes to eventually send a msg ) In the meantime I read a website somewhere that 360 was a rogue site that used the limewire access. So, me being me, I decided to put in a link "" Low and behold I got the limewire download page. I followed the instructions and paid for the download by pay pal. Only when the icon appeared on my desktop and when I had clicked on it was I aware that I had downloaded 360 share pro again !!!! I have been trying to contact limewire and pay pal without much success. Any coments please ??? Sincerely Susanna incidently no expert in this minefield of pc's LOL

Question How Do I Post???

I am hoping that this gets posted. I am new and need to find out how to use this place. I have bunches of questions and no answers. Maybe we could meet half way and I'll give you the qestions, and you can give me the answers.
How do I talk to someone in particular?
How do I know I have any return messages?
How can I get back to where I thought I was yesterday? (having trouble navigating)
And while I'm at it, How do I find out the meaning of life?

I agree with you 100% there. A lot of newbs DO NOT read the stickies posted here in the forums. So yes, it does appear that our requests are indeed falling on deaf ears. It would be nice, though, if people would just pay attention and READ THE DARN STICKIES. I mean, how plain do we have to be?

Default Use of "Sticky's"

Ok, if sticky's are so important, why not make them obvious for "newbies". Don't have time for your games. If you want to post a "sticky" - make it obvious for all to see and know what it is. I don't have time to get a degree in forumism 101! If you're so concerned about "Newbies", why not be a part of solutions rather than continue to be a part of the proliferation and defamation? You once were, what they are now. How many times did you screw up on a forum (any forum) before you learned the ropes. You mistakenly assume that because you have all the answers and excel in perfectionism, that everyone else should also and you portray an image that "newbies" are doing this deliberately. Why not just cut to the chase and post a big sign that says "NO NEWBIES ALLOWED"! You better wake up real soon and realize that newbies are the life-blood of any forum and without them, this or any forum will experience a "slow-death". Or perhaps that is your wish! Personally, I'm glad to have them. WELCOME ABOARD NEWBIES!
