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.

Default Why Does Limewire Suck Now?

Damn, I'm straight up disappointed. Limewire was the one hope for download agents and it's now going to hell.

Every download I search for now ends up with biased results for "advertisements"! It's not even the SONG. =\ What's up with these "sponsored results"?

And is it just me or is the availablity of songs/movies on LimeWire depleting?

I wish they'd spend more time making their systems run with integrity giving GOOD results instead of biased results, like Google does.

Sigh.

Sorry to disappoint but, Limewire IS NOT the P2P network, Gnutella is the open P2P network & LW, cant control what users share. and, have you checked your computer system for any viruses you may have picked up lately? Also, Ive never had any problems and have download MP3s and movies just fine, use the filters to filterout the junk files and stay away from the smaller files that get generated on the network by dummy hosts that are usually viruses/trojans/worms.

Default gov't on our a**

i know with all the info in this forum, i'm sharing a lot less than i started with. although i still have too many, around 3,000 songs. if people didn't have to worry about who's "spying" they might have more out there.

not even factoring in the freeloaders!!!

is it possible to have a "wish" list?? i know i've been trying to find michael mcdonald christmas anything, for about 4 wks. finally found 6 songs. maybe by next christmas i'll have a whole album.

ChrisAvalon try to ignore files less than 1 MB (1,000 KB) in size then you'll get what you want. Use the spam filter to filter out the spam. There's discussions as to its use in the LW Beta section of the forum.

As far as the shape of the network goes, I'd say that since the Grokster court case, mysteriously a high no. of mp3 spam suddenly started to autospam the network. 1. autogenerated spam results, & also 2. autogenerated mp3 spam results & over the past 9 months, a lot of virii has also started showing up; WARNING: Viruses on network you should be aware of! (click on link) & also porn results Direct instructions to eliminate porn from results. But, the network has grown in size & poplulation. The no. of files shared has increased as people have swapped from other networks & new p2p users buoyed by the popularity. The issue is, search results are being fogged by spam. Learn to deal with it & you'll get more than you might have at the start of the year. And I say that whilst humouring within 42 degree celsius (107 F) on the last day of the year. lol

Some search tips: 1. Cant search well help

2. See the following link & follow “ALL” the off-shoot links to find hints & extra skills to help solve your problem: To continue files downlding (click on link)

Default wish list

. . hobo

if we had a wish list i could get all the music out of my library, and only have in it what someone wanted to download.

if i gave you a list of all my albums, i'm sure you wouldn't want all of them. but if you looked at the whole list, instead of part of it, you might actually find one that you want.

the list would have to be standardized tho, (so you could actually find what you're lookin' for).
ie: if the columns are separated, maybe there's a reason why!! it's frustrating to sort by columns if there isn't but one column.

If your shared albums are properly detailed with id3 tags then people who search/browse you can separate the files into albums anyway using the LW audio>album filter. * Good tagging tools: http://massid3lib.sourceforge.net/ Personally I use Media Rage to id3 tag/correct my files, & I use iTunes to organise my files for uploads. iTunes shared library & this Albumwrap/iTunes

Default all greek (geek) to me!

remember, i'm from the dark ages!!

all my music is filed generally by genre, artist & album.

i don't know what "properly detailing with id3 tags" refers to.

audio>album filter???

i don't use an mp3 player, nor i-tunes. i still like cd's cause i have a killer stereo in the car (good vibrations), a 5.1 on comp & a 7.1 on the dvd. i play any or all at one person level. (when no one's home)

Sorry to disappoint the disappointer but I'm not disappointed by your disappointment!

And yeah, it's just recently for me that I've not been able to find anything. The songs/movies end up with this "sponsored result" crap - maybe I'm more of an isolated case.

I don't pay for it, so maybe that's it. But what kind of crap is that to make the Free Version suck so bad that you're FRUSTRATED into upgrading to something that has a chance of not being crap?

I think that's ugly business. But that's probably not the case. Maybe I'm doing something wrong - considering I've been d/l'ing for years I have NO idea what.

PS. No I'm not high. :P
