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 Can't Browse Host(s)

I upgraded from version 4.8 to 4.9 a couple of days ago and can no longer get anything when I click the "Browse Host" button. Their IP address shows up, but no results appear. I mean on any of these hosts. With 4.8, I used to get at least 25% of the ones I tried- now nothing! I checked my preferences and nothing seems to have changed there since the upgrade. Anybody know why this is?

Hmmmmm I'm not sure that this has anything to do with the new version, ........but on reflection it might (although there may be firewall issues which I really have little grap of.)

You are saying thad you click "browse host and you get an empty search ie a complete search with zero results. ( or sometimes a search which dissapears after a few seconds ... these are I think when the host has gone offline.)
I do know what you are saying and I can't believe all these people are sharing Zero! although to be fair I still get a reasonable number of positive searches.

Hmm this DOES seem to be happening with 4.9.23 Anyone else any ideas.

I can't remember if I asked you before but just in case, I'll ask again. What do you think of the 4.9.23 version? Have you had any problems with it? I have the 4.9.7 and if the newer versions are anything like the one I have now I'd have no problems upgrading!

CS The 4.9.23 is obsolete. I gather it's the 4.9.27 now! .23 seems good to me but this thread has set me wondering if there is a slight problem on the browse hosts question. I'm sure you won't have problem's upgrading.

4.9.7 was one that totally passed me by. I went from 4.8.1 staight to 4.9.18 or so Beta, but I might yet go back to the 4.8.1 probably after an unproductive session which is no fault of Limewire's

OAH-
Here is what I am getting- The IP address shows, but no results come up. Sometimes, I get the "Could not browse Host" pop-up. That was normal before I updated, but in many instances, the progress bar stays blue when it gets to the end, and nothing shows- no pop-up or results.

YAAAY!!! I just downloaded .27 and it seems "Browse Host" is working normally again. It returned results on 3 out of 5 searches. Thanks Nutcracker for the tip, and thanks all for responding. -Jeff

4.9.7 for mac was not very good!!! On my windows it refused to even open.

A browse where you get an empty search despite it completing the browse is not something new. It also happened with LW 4.8.1 I guess it has something to do with traffic, etc.
