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.

not a happy teddy is flying high
Angry Ripped off with the keys!!!

I was well and trully ripped off. I use my pc for a spot of software developing and find my self re-installing Windows quite often. I decided to subscribe to Bear share Pro (at no point did the subscription process mention that you only get four keys per subscription). I came to re-install the other day and when I got to the part where it sked for my email ads it said that I had used all the keys for that subscription and that I needed to pay again. NOT BLOODY LIKELY!!! When I bought Windows XP and a licence I can install it as many times as I like. I still have 380 days of my suscription left so I should be able to install BearShare as many times as I like. I have contacted the support four times over the last two weeks and as of yet no reply. DON'T BUY BEARSHARE PRO!!!

5.1.0b25 is more powerful than Pro anyway, and it came out before the RIAA
apparently started dictating to the new owners how they think BearShare should work. ;]

See this thread: Sticky: BearShare has been sabotaged.

I don't agree with it being more ''powerful''. Its just the same.

...Though I've always used the Pro version with opening it up with a magnet link, I've just start using BearShare again for the occosional song, film and it automatically downloads the newer BearShare Pro. Any ideas?

...Yes I've used the 'test' and BearStart but the test doesn't have the search results like that of the Pro.

So again does anyone know how to stop older versions of Pro downloading the last version of Pro?

It's more powerful because the hard-coded limit of 17 connections per
download in the regular version and 20 (25?) in Pro is set at 50 in the beta
test version, and only in the beta can you force the host module into
ultrapeer mode. These "test" features were never intended for the public.

More importantly, 5.1.0b25 came out before the remote controlled download
throttle was secretly added to the code. At any moment they could cut your
download speed to any level they choose, right down to zero. Some users
have also reported that 5.2 versions fail to download from LimeWire sources
and switching to b25 fixes that annoyance.

Of course, as expected, the new owners have severely crippled the latest
version 6 so that it only lets you find and download music and videos of 15
minutes or less in length. That means you can't get anything else at all.
Such arrogance could only come from the MAFIAA.

Search results vary widely from moment to moment but both Pro and the test
versions were set to perform better than the normal and Lite versions in any
case. If there's a difference between the two it is small enough to be
completely irrelevant. You still find what you're looking for and the rest of the
sources are automatically found during the download.

You cannot stop the upgrade process anymore either. They force the
download on you and then that annoying reminder to install it never goes
away. You could delete the new installer but then it would just download
again. What you can do is switch to b25 because there are no more
updates for that series. That means no back-door download against your will
and no nag.

Popups, what pop… oh yeah! Haven't seen those in years because I did this:

Go into your Internet Options control panel applet and go to the Security tab.
Click on the Restricted Sites icon, then push the Sites button right under that
icon. Add *.bearshare.com to that list.

Also, If you still have Zango on your system (which came with BearShare 5.2 and
up) you can remove it now. Any spyware cleaner should be able to kill that thing.

They crawled into their shell a year and a half ago and nobody has heard from
them since. It's probably because they don't want to face questions about
their close relationship with the RIAA and MPAA crowd.

Anyway, I suspect they still have that no-refund policy and are hiding behind
their EULA, which only gives you four keys. They can get away with not
putting it right on the web pages you saw during registration as long as it's
tucked away in the agreement you had to accept, and it was up to you to
find it.

Anyway, try b25 and forget about them. If you had version 5.2 or 6 you will
find that going "backwards" to that unusually potent test version is actually a
significant upgrade even though the version number is lower.
