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.

Dont waste your money on Pro. Basic works just the same, you dont have to pay to download from the Gnutella network and paying for it doesnt make you go any faster, you can only go as fast as your ISP allows you to. Pro is only qorth it if you are a heavy downloader, if not then stay with basic. But if you want to get it go here: www.limewire.com any other site is a scam. You are downloading the same files from Gnutella whether you pay or dont pay. LW might go bellyup pretty soon, so, if I were you Id hold off until the next release.

While I do agree Pro and Basic are pretty much the same there are some differences depending on your connection. I will attempt to clarify these differences as best I can.

If you have dial-up, dsl, adsl or some of the slower connections you will see virtually no difference in basic an pro. But if you have a fast cable 500+KB/s, T1, T3 or any other high speed connection you will see a noticeable difference.

I currently have cable with 900KB/s capabilities when running pro I Will get on most files 10 sources and will average around 200KB/s and with basic I will get 6 to 8 sources and average 100 to 140KB/s so as you can see there is a noticeable difference.

Also when running basic I almost never max out my capabilities but with Pro I frequently do. Also when searching for rare files I will find more sources using Pro thus more KB/s.

In conclusion for the average user there is probably no advantage to Pro but for those searching for rare files and those with high speed connections there is a noticeable difference.

I also do not believe that buying pro is a waste of money for no other reason than the developers of LimeWire do allot of work to improve the software and deserve our support, you can not feed a family on good will alone.

And if anybody wishes to use the argument that future versions are going to be worthless because of the licensing restrictions and thus not worth our support. My reply would be maybe, maybe not they Will still be developing the core of the software and it will still be open source so that others like the FrostWire crew can still use the upgraded versions.

The bottom line is in my opinion LimeWire Pro will always be worth the money.

I hate to know what you Pro people are gonna do if Limewire goes under.
Use FrostWire which I currently use most of the time. But dare I say that without the financial support that some provide LimeWire would not be what it is today.

syndrome:

sounds to me you got conned by going to a scam site selling the old version of Pro or passing off the free basic as pro.

if you got conned/scammed cancel that transaction and make sure you report it as fraud to your cc company right away as soon as possible.
