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 Future of Limewire?

Ok!

Limesharers lets think about some solutions to avoid the add-ins as Gator or eZula!

I can accept the argument of the Limewire developers that the bills must be paid but not with such a software!

Lets collect a few ideas - I made a few possible solutions!

If you want a "free" (without these add-ins) Limewire in future, vote for your solution!

Thanks,

Morgwen

Why didn't you include an option for spyware free ads? Can't they just put some banners?

Monthly fees for LimeWire or buying it is no longer an option, since it is open-source and any effords to publish new versions as closed source would probably just result in a fork of the project, since LimeWire can't just un-gpl the open versions.

I would suggest the LimeWire developers seriously start working on LimeWire extensions like GroupWare features, much more customizable XML-schemes and some kind of version-control system, so they can sell it to companies. People who don't respect copyrights usually don't pay for software, so gnutella users are no good customers.

To tell the truth, gator/ezula/whatever is the only way to make money with software like LimeWire and I was already wondering how a company can survive for that long without making profit of some kind.

Hi John!

Morpheus has only banners and they survived!

And seems you are one of a few who want this tools...

and this is sure not the only option!

The actual reality is Limewire is very unpopular after they added Gator etc. but many people use compiled versions...

John you are right is hard to earn money with an open source product...

Default JAVA..

I wouldnt pay in anyway for Limewire. I used the client a few upgrades ago. It was slower then what i was using they had limits to search returns. and a few other things i didnt like. One more thing was the GUI. it wasnt as friendly as it could be. I just got in to java and i bow my head to them for making a client made of JAVA.. I think they picked java for the plattforms it could be used on, But can you not use C in windows and Unix? I would like to know if there is a nother reason they choose JAVA

Carlo-

The current banner ads actually have no relation to spyware, so the "spyware-free ads" option is what we currently implement. The ads are simply run through an ad engine that does nothing aside from displaying the ads.

This is a separate issue from Gator and TopText, but the ads themselves do not have anything to do with spyware.

Thanks!

Thumbs up

I did vote for Paypal, because I don't use Limewire regular. But If I do, I would vote for Spywarefree/Thirdpartycodefree-Adds + Merchandising (e.g. cool T-Shirts).
