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 Music for youngsters

You know Maabell

I wish I could help but my youngsters, who think that I am "well" out of date, are older than yours.

The tell you the truth, the only thing I can surprise my boys with is when some new or current hip-hop star releases a song based on an old sampled song. My sons usually think that this new record is great until I pull out the original from my album/(re-bought)CD collection.

Finally, music is a generational thing, my parents did not like or understand the music I liked, I have a hard time even listening to the music my sons like and, I guess, my sons will have problems with the music their children like.

UK Bob

Remoc has a spectacular aura about

HaHa, I love this thread topic. For one, I have 17yr. old twin boys that will graduate High School in May, and a 14yr. old daughter, which is in a constant state of confussion. LOL

I'm a single 40 something yr. old dad, that is the Biggest Metal Head on the planet. When I say Metal, I mean any genre of music that you can put the word Metal after, thats me. Here are a few examples, and I enjoy some of all of it. Heavy metal subgenres - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Back to the kids. Obviously todays music has a Huge Influence on these kids, and I'll tell you first hand, I know. But let them be. Let them grow up and don't worry about what they're listening to.

If they're not getting in trouble, commiting crimes, and rapeing and pilaging the neighborhood kids, who cares. You can't force them to listen to "Tip Toe Through the Tulips" or they will hate you forever. LOL

All three of my kids are Way into the HipHop scene. Some, very explicit, most not. The thing is, they will listen to what ever, when ever.
You can't be there 24/7. Make life enjoyable as your parents hopefully did when you were growing up.

My kids think I'm a Looney for listening to the most extrem metal produced, as do my co-workers, but you really can't judge someone on the music that they prefer. I just keep em' guessing. LOL

Sounds like, me and your son could share some music files.

It's all good man, just relax.

Enjoy them while you can, because they'll be gone soon enough.

I Don't Suffer From Insanity, I Enjoy Every Minute of it

How on Earth can a dad pick music for his son?

It's not possible and it never will be.

I'd try classical:
Mahler, Brahms, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Vivaldi, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Bizet, Dvorak, Chopin, Fauré, Litz, Couperin, Berlioz, Albéniz ...
You have songs within these composers that will make any kids think twice about Classical Music ...

Where do you think that bands like Scorpion, Queen ... had pulled their hits from?
