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.

Hi superniceguy

You must have a fast connection

You must have the ports open (ie open them yourself in your firewall program)

You Must Have A Lot Of Files To Transfer

I Would Say About Over 1,000

Do Not keep connecting and disconnecting

More often than not I find myself an ultrapeer ... Gnutella decides not you. I have had a couple of problems recently with many peers attempting to connect in vain and my connection dropping of to almost zero, and I have dissabled ultrapeer capabilities in preferences/options temporarily. I think it is of benefit to the network rather than you to be an ultrapeer, although the title is rather cool, but as long the network needs you as an Ultrapeer it will use you. I think if there were no ultrapeers the network would not obe able to opperate. I may have this entirely wrong and if I have, please someone correct me

Default Ultrapeer

Superniceguy

I have found that when using LWPro 4.9.28 with a TurboCharged Internet connection, mine runs at 2.2Mps, LW automatically switched me from "Leaf" to "Ultrapeer", with no intervention from me.

So, to be an "Ultrapeer" you have to have broadband.

67kbps = 67 KiloBitswhich converted to kiloBYTES (/8) =8KBps

So looks like your bandwidth is being maxed. All is good.

btw, you can be an Ultrapeer if you are sharing zero files. In fact, if your files are in high demand, you help the network more by being an uploader, and since being an ultrapeer uses up about the equivalent of one upload slot (8-15 KB/s), LimeWire may automatically switch you to leaf mode under those conditions.

Don't worry however: leafs get just as good (sometimes even better) searching and downloading than Ultrapeers.

ok i know that being an ultrapeer isnt going to help me much or at all. i just like helping this out i think of my self that way. if nobody helped...nothing would happen. so your all saying i cant make my self be a ultrapeer unless i have fast conetion like 2-3mbs or something

so i im right the best thing for me is just let ppl upload from me and not try to be an ultrapeer

and if you didnt read my first post i have 96k modem not broadban im going to get broadban after i get a job becuase my parents will not pay for anything other than dail up and im 14 so... i realy pay for my self im real trying to get a better car first

You mean certainly 6.5KB/s and I'd like to point out that 56k Modem connections are asymmetric like ADSL.

http://www.umanitoba.ca/acn/remote/faq/speed56.html

... your 6.5KB/s downstream is too slow to be an Ultrapeer and the upstream is even slower. Thus, Modem users can never become Ultrapeers.
