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 LimeWire hurting GNet?

It has come to my attention that although LimeWire is taking advantage of READING the search results that BearShare sends out to determine if the server is busy, they are not SETTING these flags in the extended area.

This prevents people from detecting if a LimeWire servent is busy or not, and therefore puts more load on BearShare users.

It was apparently an intentional oversight, designed to improve the reliability and quality of downloads using LimeWire, at the expense of the BearShare servent.

No, they posted the byte format to the gdf weeks ago, and since you can't write protocols, think before you create your own little nightmare idea of a protocol mod, or even write english for that matter, they messed it up!

IT'S YOUR FAULT!

Quit grabbing at straws, your world is out of control and you are freaking out because you are losing the ability to dictate over it.

Here are the problems: You don't own Gnutella, you can't control Gnutella, there is no throne to sit on in Gnutella, Gnutella won't allow a dictator, and you just found out you really arn't god, so you have no choice but stomp your feet, jump up and down and hold your breath till everyone does what you want, your way.

The solution: Look in the phone book under "Psychotherapists". You don't seem to get it, and you deny having a dictator, control freak, rule over everyone attitude, so you better get a appointment quick because we all see it from here. These forums are not about providing free psychotherapy to you, it's just a warning sign that trouble is ahead. If you were in person I assume it would be worse, I think we are getting only the tip of what you are like for real. How was your childhood? Were you abused? What was your dad like? Please lay down when answering.

Please seek help, please make a Vinnie Net protocol and be on your way to complete and total control. (if you can figure out how to be compatable with your own protocols that is)

Don't worry, be a happy dictator! (in your own little virtual bubble, please leave us alone)

NOTtoPanic, stop flaming in these forums.

That whole post was a flame except "No, they posted the byte format to the gdf weeks ago".

Hallo:

it is not easy to defend Vinnie here, but also I feel you shot a little over the target also, if I may say so.

His (Vinnies) attitude is for sure not the best *ahem* , but it is impossible for me to complain about the niveau of his posts and then 'lower' me down, down to exactly the same flaming style he did so often.

I do not believe it is necessary to insult him, I can not see the sense in starting flame wars. If we do, nobody is helped, not us, not the gnutella community, and no newbie also. And I do not like, while reading threads, to sift out all the insults regardless the sides and my sympathies to harvest a little bit of information at last.

I became a gnucleus user last week, and I have to admit that this decision consisted 20% out of unresolved issues and 70% dislike of his attitudes*, and his endless insulting. This was no joy for me, no cheap revenge, I pitied him for he wounded him all by himself.

So, think, do you want to wound your point of view by insulting back?

Please do not take this as offence, it is not meaned so!

Greetings, and a lucky week!


*You wonder about the missing 10%? Easy: Calculating was never my strongest side :-)

Yea, sorry. It just gets me that he knows this but still tries to blame his problems on other clients and never thinks maybe his stuff is to blame. This is frustrating!

I will try to calm down. Give it a day or two and it will all blow over.

Default CycloCide is right.

It only makes matters worse when we personally assault Vinnie. It accomplishes nothing. It only gives him fuel for the fire.

Lets try to keep the discussion aimed towards BearShare as a servant and not Vinnie as a person.

Thumbs down

Vinnie, it seems, is just trying to bullshit LimeWire and other servants because LimeWire said on their website that his Bearscare had spyware. He said that LimeWire had something real nice coming their way. What was he gonna do? Take a break from his intensive firewall cracking classes and destroy LimeWire? Anyway, Vinnie can bullshit his way to the moon and not get a single issue solved. We're just trying to get things sorted out and Vinnie comes along. I guess he's starting to ease up on that. We should focus not on finger-pointing and flame wars, but solving the issues. And by the way, lies don't help either.


Signing Off,
Kirby

Exclamation Right...

Yes, like the would-be Mussolini of the Gnutella world would apologize for anything. It's fine when *his* program screws others over, but should anyone stand in the way of his proprietary packets - beware!

You know it's bad when all he can resort to it forum bombing! Note to CycloCide: you should collect all Vinnie's comments and send them to the abuse address of his ISP - maybe his webhost too!

How about LimeWire and the others add a "Block BearShare" option just like they have for Mandragora and other trojans! ;-)

BearShare Uber Ales!
All hail the clan of the Cave Bear!

Whew i havent laughed that hard for a while..

I hope Limewire does block ALL connections from Bearshare because around 70%(very conserative estimate most likely higher) of ALL people on Gnutella use Bearshare. So go ahead block Bearshare lol theyll just shoot themselves in the foot.

Anyways The Limewire thing isnt kewl because it puts there users at a advantage by offering them more content without allowing the user to see what the user on the other side is using. It discourages users from other programs from downloading off their users. Which is counter productive and isnt a good for the network.

As for taking over gnutella some people here are really really stupid not to figure out why that would be a horrible thing to do. If someone took over gnet then that would create a centrali structe for people like the RIAA and MPAA to sue. So unless you want huge legal problems and to wrangle with multibillion dollar corporations no one is going to take over the network.

And another thing there is a way to make your opinions be herd without being obscene, or making a *** of yourself. If anyone here wants to get any higher than flipping bugers i suggest you learn how to respect people even though you may not agree with there actions.

what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty...
