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 how do i erase my files...

hey guys,

when i download songs they go to my limewire library. i then transfer them by clicking and draging them to my windows media player (after i look them up by clicking on 'explore' in my library). now i have them on my media player library.

well my question is ... i want to delete the songs from my limewire library so when i want to transfer newly downloaded songs to my media player library i will not have to sort through all of the past downloaded songs. however, when i delete the songs from my limewire library they are erased and i cannot play them on the windows media player.

is there a way where i can delete the songs from my limewire library but still have them on my computer?


i am computer illiterate so please be specific.

thank you very much,
chad

In the options under the saved tab you will find out which folder you are saving your downloads to. Open that folder and create a new folder in Windows and open that too. Then you just move your files to the other folder. Now they won't show up in the saved files in the LimeWire library.

P.S. If you are a nice person that isn't a freeloader. You will go to the sharing tab in Limewire options and add the new folder folder

P.P.S. To prevent malware, downloaded by accident through P2P networks , from speading to others, it might be a good idea to remove your saving folder from the shared folders, and only move your new downloads after checking them first. Scan before opening, thats my rule. Better safe than sorry.

Hope this helps

Oh, another hint.
Instead of dragging musicfiles to WMP, you can ask it to keep an eye on your folder, than they will be added automaticly, saving you alot of time

Default deleting files

Hey, i notice that when a download is successful, the "quality" stars for that download, turns into a little green tick. Even when i delete all evidence from my hard drive and library etc. If i search the same programs, movies etc, the green tick still shows my previous downloads, even from the past. Is there a way to convert the green tick icon back to stars, so i have absolutely no evidence of downloading the files.
Thanx in advance

thanks guys.

but one last question. what is the benifit of scaning the shared files (or downloaded ones) before sending them to my saved file? why not just have them transported directly to the saved file and scan that one, thus eliminating an unncessary folder. (keep in mind the saved folder is shared also).

-chad

ps. what does it mean when the file type is in red vs. black?

The benefit is for others as much as it is for yourself. Malware often has to be turned on. If you scan your files without opening or moving them first, you might be able to delete the bad files without causing any harm. And if the folder isn't shared that you download to, noone else will be uploading it from you, thus saving them from the grief of having to deal with the same malware.

Red files aren't being shared and black ones are. If you have done what I said they are not mixed in the library. shared folders will have black files and the files you have just downloaded will be red. If you want to be organized U can have videos and music by genre in different folders just sharing all of them.

It also isn't really nessesary to share all your files, because sharing too many files might get you in trouble. I try to stay under 1000 shared files normally. Much less chance of getting caught, than people who share several thousand files. I also try to share files that not everyone has allready, instead of things people can get from other easyly.

Hope this helped
