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.

And that's BS. For a start LW has not had adware since the 1st version 4. Secondly, as reported by a spyware forum, most spyware programs on the market don't work properly due to them not being able to cope with p2p sharing programs. They identify the magnets as being spyware. Micro$oft's spyware program also had this bug until they brought out an update to fix it. The 2 programs recommended (by the spyware forum) are 1. Spybot - Search & Destroy (FREE). & 2. ad-ware (FREE)

BTW if you had searched the forums before posting as the forum rules specify, you'd have found this has been discussed many times before.

There are scam versions of LW out there on the web, but the official version has no spyware or adware. Pity the magazine didn't do their research properly. That doesn't say much for the magazine's research abilities does it. Oh & yes I've read many of that mag before.

Perhaps you should have used a different header!.

I'm interested in what's going in Australia. I gather it's illegal to put your personal CDs on an mp3 player. Is that true? Or is that another thing that we up here have missunderstood?

Crazy but true. Since apple has no official site to download music in Australia, technically everyone with an I-Pod is breaking the law atm. Not sure how it is in regards to other MP3 players, there are legal sites but read an article the other day that said something like only 40% of the current top 40 was available legally. And that was on the top performing site, some of the others came in at under 10%.
As far as I know, no P2Ps have been targetted yet, apart from Kazaa which has run its race anyway. I fear LW will be the next target, as I mentioned previously in another thread, use of LW has jumped 840% here in the last 12 months.

Well I think you guys have been hit pretty hard, they pay $1.40 in N.S.W., but here in sunny Q.L.D its a tad cheaper at $1.20 approx it can vary, its wise to fill up on Tue and Wed, they hike the prices on the other days. As for a swap love to, summer can be pretty extreme at times, it would be nice to have a cold xmas instead of a scorching one, no hot lunch here mate, beer and seafood or a bbq. Oh back to LW Ive got no idea on the law about mp3s lol.

Even with p2p it's only been the big players who have got in trouble. One being a group of uni students who were downlding from university & then selling as bootleg cd's. They deserved to get busted IMO. The other being the guy who bought Kazaa. AFAIK ... no other users have been chased here. I might b wrong. The culture of copying music onto audio tapes, etc. has been around for about 40 yrs. Prolly every 3rd person in the law enforcement has such recordings.
