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.

Angry S**t another sucker been scammed!

Hi I have just found this forum and so wish I had found it before!

I have been scammed today by emule.org, I was searching for emule as had heard it was OK and I have been having trouble finding stuff with Limewire recently. I signed up only to find it had charged me the extra for spyware or something that I didn't ask for and that doesn't work on a Mac anyway. The only software offered was Limewire which I have, BitTorrent which is free and some other thing that didnt work.

I didn't realise immeditely that I had been scammed just thought I was being stupid or there was a problem cos I use a Mac. Anyhow after I realised I tried to find contact details, absolutely sod all on the sites, I had to log onto the members area where there was supposed to be a web chat but this wasn't on, maybe cos its the weekend and there were no phone numbers or email addresses!

So can anyone help me with some contact details for emule.org which is where I started from but it went to some other site called filesharingcenter.com. I phoned my bank and they said they couldn't stop the payment as I paid with a debit card, but if I sent them details they may be able to do something. I am not sure if this is the same company as some others on this thread under a different name. So if anyone has a number that would be great, I want to try and get my 30 quid back!

Carole

Can you check your browser history to get the exact site address. Is this the site? http://emule.org/ If yes then try the contact details.
BTW did you know LW beta 4.13 now has torrent support. Other than that, Azureus is best for mac. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azureus. If you need tips about the torrents then send me a message by clicking on my username.

I'll probably be offline by the time you reply but hopefully another member will be around. It's that time of year. And I've just done a long shift as an unpaid forum helper.

Yes that was the site, I have just reset my Safari actually as it has gone weird since all this happened earlier today, I can't get onto hotmail now through Safari so maybe something dodgy has downloaded! I did go onto the contact details and all it does is take you back to the sign up page to take out membership!!!

Good work you are doing as unpaid forum helper!! If I had the knowledge I would do it too! I don't really know anything about torrents!!

So still searching for contact details for emule.org also known as filesharingcenter.com. Maybe the live chat thing will work next week when the holidays are over.

Thanks again

filesharingcenter.com I believe is also mentioned on here (p.5 I think) Known Scam Sites (click on link)

That 'sign-in' scenario seems to be the same on all their links on that page. Check the contact one & see if you can actually send a message after entering your member name, etc. (except for any credit card bizo)

Since you know it's filesharingcenter.com then check their other links from this site & look for contact details there (look for them on the link above.) Sorry ... normally I'd research this myself for you.

Did you get a confirmation email or reciept when you paid? Check for any contact details on those. Also check your browser history for the exact site you went to (that link of yours goes nowhere).

Did you pay by credit or debit card? Call your bank/CC company, they'll be able to give you more info. If you paid by CC, it might be possible for the company to cancel the transaction before payment goes through.

Hi

Well it looks like I may have resolved my scam in one email! I hope so anyway. I finally managed to connect to their mail service thing on the filesharingcenter website and said I was dissatisfied and wanted a full refund and got this reply:

John H 1/3/2007 8:20:42 AM
Dear Customer,

Thank you for the email. We apologize if this membership did not fulfill your expectations. As requested, we have processed the full refund. Please visit www.marketbill.com to check the refund status.

Please allow normal banking delays of 10 to 15 days before the funds appear on your account. You will also receive a confirmation email in the next 24 hours regarding this transaction.

Sincerely,
Your Customer Service Team


So fingers crossed will get the refund! Thanks for the help and advice Lord of The Rings. I will certainly be more careful what I buy in the future!!! I seem to have a few weird things going on with my Mac since this all happened, so it may end up costing me to get it cleaned up!!

Carole
