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 no longer am able to find new downloaded songs from limewire to my Media player

I no longer am able to find new downloaded songs from limewire to my Media player; they arent transferring over there for some reason. I went to "search" on my "start" and it shows numerous files, that when opened say one or more of these files may be invalid. this may be due to a corrupted installation. etc. also i keep getting my Norton Alert saying "worm protection" has detected a remote system is attempting to access your computer" and asks me to Allow or Block. Either way the Warning keeps popping up! below is the message I get when I try to open a "executable jar file"

Hi theputz,

You're saving songs to C:\Program Files\Limewire?? That's a bad idea...if you uninstall LW then your songs are gone. The default saving location is C:\Documents and Settings\your username\Shared...that's a safer option. In LW tools > options > saving & change your saved folder back to that default location.

If that doesn't work, delete LW's preferences folder when LW's properly closed. See point 3 here & also point 2 if you've used older versions of LW in the past (there could be a folder in either location).
Fixes for LimeWire
This will kill all of your settings within options, you'll have to go back through afterwards & reset things. If you're not sure of your settings, go through LW's tools > options & write them all down, so that you can reset things later.

Once you have a better saved folder location, see it things transfer to your media player properly again.

Re the Norton internet worm protection popup, see if this helps:

birdy...I went to open limewire today, and everything was gone! I am so so u(u kno, freaked out) all that downloading etc and it uninstalled itself?? I had to download/open it to find it even - usually it auto loads on startup. In my "programs to add/remove" it says limewire is 230.00 mbs. but there is nothing in the library etc. My media player (wmp) has not received any new downloads from the "C:\Documents and Settings\your username\Shared" after I made it as you told me to and then I downloaded some of my favorites again. WHAT the heck happened?
also i had Limewire pro at one time and how do i get it back? they say you only pay one time. HELP
Any help is appreciated.!

oops,. never mind about the files transferring to wmp, i clicked on genre, and a lot of songs had been filed there; I was looking under "recently added". I am reading more of the links you mentioned. Always a good idea to do the research before whining about things! Patience is a virtue.

Re the LW Pro, it's a one time payment of $18.88 & entitles you to free updates for 6 months. Whatever versions that you download during the 6 months are yours.'s up to the user to save & back up their LW Pro installers If you didn't save your installers then you'll have to buy again if you want to use Pro.
