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.

Unhappy I want to share my CDs

Hi,
I'm new to all this so please be patient with me. I found out through the forum how to put my CDs into the library, but they appear as folders. Is this OK for users to access or should I be doing something else? I have downloaded whole discs but they do not show individual tracks and therefore I can't skip those I don't want or 'shuffle' them. Any advice (speak slowly please, I'm also a pensioner). Thanks

Hi, I'm fairly new myself and I also have just added some CD's into my limewire library... they do appear as folders, but they are still shared. You should be able to click on a plus sign next to the folder to display the individual tracks... then you should be able to pick which tracks you want to play individually or add them to your playlist in whatever order you want (this is on the limewire player). As for shuffling, i'm not sure about that as I don't generally use the limewire player much, I don't think its capable of that option.
If there is no plus sign next to the folder, then the individual tracks should be displayed when you click on the folder itself.
Hope this helps.

Hmmm. No + signs. A double click opens and displays contents (playlists) and tracks (albums). Playlists that I have saved from LW downloads (Type mp3) are ok. My own CDs that are in folders will launch all or individual tracks (straight to Media Player) but tracks will not 'enqueue' for LW MP3 Playlist. They show as 'wma' in the 'Type' column. The same problem with RealPlayer downloads - launch straight to RealPlayer, but do not enqueue - show as 'm4a' in 'Type' column...Sorry I'm going on a bit here...but if they don't go into the playlist (Where there is a 'save as' icon) how can playlists be saved?

Hmm, sorry i'm a bit inexperienced with playlists as I don't really use any media player for actually playing tracks! I just use them for ripping and burning. Maybe someone more experienced could help you? But I'll have a little go.....
I just tried to play WMA files on LW player and they don't play... As far as I know Limewire is just an MP3 player, but to use it you must first go to tools>options>player and then tick the box that says Use Limewire MP3 Player. I think you then need to restart your computer for this to take effect.
That should stop your system default player from overiding the limewire player and launching in other programmes such as Realplayer.
Try that if you haven't already done so.... also just to clarify, there IS a shuffle option, you just need to tick the box next to shuffle! Make sure your CD's are ripped as MP3 files. Then you just highlight the track you want to play and click the "to playlist" option.
Let me know how you get on.

I've ticked the box, but that doesn't override Realplayer...Never mind...I won't download any more of those or WMA files. I'll try again with one of my own CDs to see if there is an MP3 option. It seems a shame that people can upload only the tracks that I've downloaded. My next challenge is to transfer vinyl. Now that will be a challenge for a techno illiterate senior.
Thanks for your help rach28. I'll keep checking the forum to see if there are other potential solutions.
Bye

Sorry you didn't get very far.. I am pretty sure though that LW player is purely for MP3's... which is why realplayer still overides the LW player for other formats.
When I rip my CD's I always use windows media player 9, and if you click on tools>options, then click on the rip music tab you can choose the format that you wish to rip your disc to...(MP3 or WMA) and also set the quality (bitrate). Remember to click the apply button when you alter your settings.
I'm pretty sure that there should be a similar option on realplayer, have a look at the options menu.
Good luck with the vinyl... I have no clue how that one goes!

It is possible using WMP to convert .mp3 format into .wma (and vice-versa), if you have the capabilities (in which I currently have). Yes, it appears that LW only plays .mp3 format. It can play .m4a format, but you have to have a player capable of playing in that format (which I don't think I have at the moment). Originally, whenever I would put CDs on my computer, the tracks would be in .cda format. Now that format can't be played (or so it was until I was able to convert it into another format).

There are a number of audio & Video conversion programs that can be downloaded. A good one is Blaze Media Pro (http://www.blazemp.com/). It's pricey but you get a 15 day free trial. You can also edit with it. If you edit, when you save the file, change the name (I add 1 to the end of the file name); otherwise, saving doesn't change the original file.
