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 purchased from Allcoolmusic or also known as my-new-music. I read that I was downloading some mp3shark software and there were all the instructions for it and limewire downloaded. I have problems and I am trying to get tech support from limewire and they say I cant get tech support because I did not buy from the directly. I paid 29.95 for unlimited for life and got the 14.00 movie package free. They say they have a 30 day 100% satisfact. guarantee or money back but they will not answer there phones and wont answer my emials although i know they are getting them because I am getting the read receipts! im getting verry PO'd. I am a little upset with lime wire too because they keep telling me that allmusic sent me what they give free but I have downloaded the PRO version! How di dthat happen? im starting to think that Limewire is in on this and benefiting somehow! How would I get the pro version? And why does Limewire not give these other sites a piece of there mind?????????

yur upset with LW eh...grow up, sheeshus...let's say somebody stole your car, then the person who bought it called you up about how to pop the hood open (you know, the one you dented and have to use a special technique to get it to come up) would you say?

So Long and Thanks for All the Files

Beware of the big 3 insurance companies in Texas! Read your policies carefully (maybe you'll need a lawyer) Allstate, Farmers & State Farm are overextended and their 'coverage' is worthless...a true waste of your money Read This

No you guys, im not mad at LW. Im po'd that everyone keeps telling me that I dont have the friggin pro version! I DO! I can read. I go under the about tab and right there plain as day, it says LIME WIRE PRO 4.12.6 Im upset because LW can not explain to me how this company can sell THERE pro edition if they are not allowed too! can not make up functions inside SOMEONE elses software. If it says PRO right in the about folder than it is. I am going to get it off my puter. Right now. Then I will buy it direct from LW! I just wanted them to tell me if i can still keep all the crap I downloaded or not but no one there will budge. So not mad at LW. I just wish LW would have said they are not allowed to sell our pro version because if they did than more people could have better grounds to go after these F**** for doing what they do. When I download something that says i am downloading mp3shark or whatever it was, that is what should come up. They even said there would be an mp3shark icon on my desktop. I guess i am upset with LW for not going after them. I guess when i see what LW basic has to ofeer than I can better comment because if I do have there pro version, then they are getting ripped off since I didnt buy it from them! Going to unload this now!
Wish me luck! And dont boo hoo me guys, this is the spot to talk about this. thats why I posted! I just wanted others to know that allcoolmusic and my-new-music are NOT trusted sites, I read some where on these boards in a very lengthy post that they were but read in another that on LW is legit for LW software! I am trying to get my money back but these idiots wont respond to me. Thereis no chat feature to chat with them on. just an email no one answers and a phone number that goes to Vmail which i have left 4 messages on so far today! I paid with my debit card so my bank cant do squat till after it posts. So I have to have patience here!

Talking New Here

Hi Everyone!
Well I have been having nothing but trouble with LW and went scouting around for some help and happened upon this thread.
My problem with LW is that in checking with other folks, they got theirs FREE and I had to pay.

Let me back up. I went to a Morpheus site and was willing to pay to download it. So I downloaded what I though was Morpheus and ended up with LW. Now the price was $24.99 I believe and by the time I got done, it ended up being nearly $40. I did not click anywhere that I wanted any additional software, I just got it!

So I figure, ok Dena ya got it see how it works.

I could download music, but no one could get to my shared file, because when I tried to set the options for shared files, the page would not go all the way to the bottom, nor could it be dragged down, for me to click ok!

(I don't mind sharing. I am a sharin' kinda gal!)

So I went to look for some help, as emails went unanswered as did the phone.

I found this forum, and went

I have contacted my credit card company, faxed them all the paperwork, emailed yet again to LW (no answer), and the CC company assured me they would get a complete refund for me.

To be honest, I am now afraid to download the FREE version of LW.

How can I import my music library or save it? I only managed to download about 6 songs from LW so my library is mainly from Morpheus.

This seems like a very nice and helpful site.

LW's email support won't recognise your email address, since you didn't buy Pro from the official site (your email address won't be in the database)

You're far better off getting rid of the scam version & any other extras that came with it - who knows what kind of version you ended up with!

It's a bit hard for us to help if you're using a scam version, it might be complete junk & never work properly. If you do decide to get the official version, make sure to use the offline installer (not the recommended one).

Ugh, I was scammed just hours ago by MP3MusicHQ. I was at Google searching for Lime Wire to DL, and got a site that I assumed was Lime Wire. It gave me some kind of deal like free music downloads for .99 cents a month and I agreed. I put in my credit card information, downloaded some cheap **** excuse for a music system, and was on my way to being scammed. I tried to download some songs, but it wasn't working. I checked my bank account and they had charged me for like 30 bucks, plus 8.99 for some spam blocker I DID NOT sign up for. I then Googled the site because I got suspicious and found like 5 sites saying it was a scam. Let me just say how stupid I felt at that point. I found a few forums and topics with posts about how to call and deal with it and proceeded to do so.

This was one of the funniest phone calls I have ever had. The guy, first of all, sounded like he was sitting on his couch, munching on Doritos, watching Cat Woman. He had to spell out my email address in army lingo three separate times, and then claimed the system was down. I refused to get off the phone and mentioned the word "scam" and the system magically came back up. He then told me they would refund me money but they had to charge me a 9.95 fee. I had read a post on a different forum where they told a guy this, and he mentioned the FBI and they immediately took it back. That worked like a charm. I refused to pay the fee and he said "they" would refund my money. By "they" I am assuming he meant him and his lame **** buddy who make money off screwing people. Long story short, they said I’m getting a full refund in 8-10 business days. He then said "Anything else you would like to B**** about?" I laughed and said no, and hung up.
