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 LimewirePro and Itunes

I cannot get my downloads to open in Itunes. I have been reading all the suggestions given regarding this problem, but nothing seems to work. I never had this problem with previous Limewire but since purchasing PRO have had nothing but problems. On another topic, I sent some tunes that I did have in ITunes to the recycling bin by mistake, I restored them but now I can't find them, they didn't go back to Itunes. Moya

Check the post here for some info: limewire and itunes

Do the files play with LW's player or any other player? Try playing the files with VLC player... it's free & has codecs installed to play most file types. There's a link for download within this thread: CODECs list for Movies/Audio/Alternate players / Video help forums/ video-mp3 fixers

If VLC won't play the files then chances are they're bogus... see the first link I posted for more info.

Use your computer's search to look for some of the file names. Once you've found where the files are located, you can add them to iTunes by opening the folder & dragging & dropping into iTunes, or use iTunes' File > add file to library > browse for the location & go from there.
There's more info about adding to iTunes here: How to transfer music to my iPod (& iTunes)

I have tried everything. I do not have any tunes in Itunes, all there is is "Shared Limewire". I can download songs no problem but there doesn't seem much point when they won't go into Itunes so I can put them on my ipod. Moya

Providing that the songs are in a format that iTunes supports - they should transfer to iTunes.

It makes it really hard for us to help when we're not given any info - we don't even know which version of LW you're using. Or which version of iTunes.

The 'shared LW tunes' is just a playlist. Those songs haven't been added to the iTunes library. It's just so that people can play their LW downoads through iTunes, if they want to. That playlist only shows when LW is open. And you can't transfer files from that playlist onto an iPod.

What happens when you go (in iTunes) File > Add file to library. Then browse your computer to find LW's saved folder & add songs from there?

In iTunes have you tried File>Library>Consolidate Library? It will search for music files and add them to iTunes Library.

Also, again in iTunes - Edit>Preferences>Advanced. Make sure that "Keep iTunes Music Folder Organised" and "Copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library" are both ticked.

Below these make sure that "Use iTunes as the default player for audio files" is ticked, then click OK.

Just one note about the "Keep iTunes Music Folder Organised" option. It will rename files adding a prefix 01, 02, etc. to each song filename.

Although I haven't used it in ages, Consolidate used to move any files across to iTunes Music Library that were previously only added as playlists. However I am not so sure this applies to the LW playlist.

Sorry, meant to say where are your limewire files saved. It may be that iTunes was only sharing them rather than adding to its library.

Where are your (Limewire) downloads saved?

Tools>Preferences>Download. What's the path/folder?

Look in this folder with Windows Explorer to see if files are present.

If they are and you have made iTunes default audio programme, try double clicking one to see if it opens in iTunes.
