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.

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 status as of november 8th (Gnucleus and Morpheus)

Note: look at the last post of the thread to see the leech status as of today

Salut all, since there has been trolling from Morpheus devs and a fanboy claiming GnucDNA was no leecher in Gnutella network, I'll expose here my findings. I'm no way affiliated with any Gnutella client and my motives are only to make Gnutella the best network. Those bugs/behaviors were told to John Marshall (GnucDNA and Gnucleus dev) and concerned members. The choice of this subforum has been decided for two reasons: 1) it isn't under Morpheus mods control nor any mods beside supermods 2) it concerns GnucDNA. This thread is locked from start to avoid flame wars and trolling. If you have comments, feel free to PM me. If you want to discuss my findings go ahead by creating a new thread in this forum. Remember that what I found was with less than 2 hours of testing, there might be many other bugs in GnucDNA making it not play nice with other clients.

GnucDNA apps mentionned:
Gnucleus (GnucDNA build of november 5th)
Morpheus 4.5 with GnucDNA

Other apps used to make the tests:
Limewire 4.1.8

Good read

First message sent saturday november 6th:
DNA tests and problems

Salut John, did a little testing with two computers connected in a lan with router. Each computer had a LW 4.1.8 UP. I alternated with Phex leaves, Shareaza leaves and Gnucleus (5 nov build) leaves. The different clients had all a different port forwarded by the router to the two computers (no firewall or obstacles on them). The two LW UPs were inter-connected. All nodes had a shared folder containing two files. 1)Gnucleus named ‘gnucleus test programme.exe’ and 2)Phex named ‘phex test programme.exe’

I did searches, downloads attempts from results and from LW style magnets (LW was the downloader with the LW style magnets, but shareaza understands them too)

Here is what looks like a LW magnet that I entered in a web browser: magnet:?xt=urn:sha1:2DCH7OJQJSG7ZONL4EZ66DGC3GIMG4 3B&dn=gnucleus test programme.exe&xs=
You can make your LW magnets automatically with LW by going in Library window, right click on a file and select magnet details of the file. Do not fear to install LW it is spyware free.

First I can get results and downloads from LW and Shareaza on all occasions.
I got results from Phex, but I couldn't dl from results and from magnets. I couldn't download magnets from Gnucleus, the upload window showed a connected then it cancelled the dl when LW requested from a magnet. I had a hard time finding results from gnucleus until I figured that if I searched 'gnucleus' alone I get result and not from composed word searches like 'gnucleus test' or 'gnucleus test programme'. Once I got a result from the 'gnucleus' search, I could dl from it.

So for gnucDNA there seems to be compatibility for magnets requests (probably sha1 requests) and for composed term searches. Note that the 64kb QRP wasn't filled the same between Phex, LW and Gnucleus. Phex was 0.05%, Gnucleus 0.02% and LW was like phex at 0.05%

Phex seems to have an upload problem and I’ll PM GregorK about it. I do care less about Phex because popular shitty apps like Morpheus aren’t using it so the impact is negligeable on Gnet.


Second message sent sunday november 7th:

In conformity with my theory about multi keyword searches (99% of my searches), I got results from Morpheus searching only one term "fringants" a part of a name of a French Québec band very popular here (Les cowboys fringants). I got Morph450 (gnucDNA results. I tried to dl and only got one chunk then the Morph hosts cancelled me (LW asks for 97.7kb chunks if I recall correctly). So yes GnucDNA is a 99% leech right now! Hope you fix those nasty problems in upload logic and QRP.


Third message sent sunday november 7th:

Also, I can get Morpheus results from any type searches in LW but not when I search in the audio - artist category. Other P2P apps like Shareaza, Bearshare and GTK-gnutella are doing fine with those queries. I think GnucDNA should return GPL, that should help bring volunteers to developp it (more Gnucleus users) and kill those stupid shitty apps using it. But maybe that's just me...


Edit: Of course GnucDNA can take (dl) without problems from other clients
Edit2: there seems to be a Gwebcache abuse coming from GnucDNA: they make 33% gwebcaches requests while being less than 10% of clients of Gnet

Default December 31 2004 update

GnucDNA still have many problems.

First with sha1 hashes of mp3 (probably happened because they had metadata)
I made a shared folder with the exact same 3 files:

1) xxxx techno mp3 file

2) xxxx mp3 file

3) Gnucleus programme.exe

I look at QRP on the LW UP (both a Gnucleus and a LW leave were connected to a LW UP)
QRP % of 64KB
0.02% Gnucleus
0.07% Limewire

Is gnucDNA forgetting to make many entries for a keyword so the QRP table is more empty? ie normally "oiseaux" is entered as "oiseaux, oiseau, oisea" in a QRP table in Limewire so if you search for "oiseau" in LW it will find results that are named "oiseaux".

Now for the searches:
GnucDNA results only showed in any type searches for LW.No Music searches results.GnucDNA doesn't show metadata on results in any type of files. GnucDNA doesn't send result to a search "Gnucleus programme" but returns for "gnucleus programme.exe" probably because it needs space to differenciate key words and it doesn't take apart the .exe extension.One amelioration noticeable over is that GnucDNA does seem to respond to searches containing more than one keyword if those word are separated with spaces.

Needs serious work....

2005/02/13: Seems like the latest and the new behave much better in terms of search results and downloads. Finally.

So for now rest of the leech problem is only because of the default multinetwork behavior of Morpheus and GnucDNA which waste normal upload bandwidth normally reserved for one network (by separating upload slots available between networks and with the multinetwork overhead), thus lowering dl speed for other clients.

Case closed for now.
