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 SHARE, don't be tight. If you dont want to share then don't download.

I share 30gb of my music, programs, and movies 24/7. I only download when I want something, however I let others download from me ALL THE TIME 24/7 to the tune of between 1000mb and 6000mb EVERY DAY! I plan on adding another 100gb of file storage next month just so that I can store more for others to download. I challenge others to do the same. P.S. I am poor and can barely pay my rent and bills. The only reason I am doing this is to propogate file sharing as a whole. I believe that it allows poor people access to books, programs, music, and other information that helps people better themselves.

Default agreed

I too have little money to spend on bonus items like software and music. That's the reason I got into this file sharing thing. I have a small hard drive but I do share 2 gigs of software that I hope people will continue to share if they download. If I had any money I too would get the biggest hard drive I could get and share everything I have on CD's too, but I don't, so my humble stash will have to do.

don't be too quick to judge people.

I have to limit sharing, simply because Telenet, the network I'm on, limits uploads to 2GB a month. If one doesn't comply, you get to be banned to smallband.

sometimes there are people who approach me in an aggressive way when I'm not sharing anymore, usually when the end of the month is near... I'm sick of explaining time after time.

Default Agreed. Leave yr computer on at night.

So the rest of the world can download while you sleep.
I mean, it's not like you're doing anything with it, right?

I personally got all the Sopranos and make sure they're
available to the next downloader.

Also, put something in the file name if the file sux
like Sopranos - Fun House (poor quality) so people
don't spend a long time downloading a poor quality
file unless they want to.

It only works if we make it work!

Exclamation PowerNeeds

My machine's live around'a clock with 100+ GB share (DSL).
I'm constantly (trying to) DL and UL all the time,
well that's my small P2P contribution.

I'm well aware that the energy (a neat couple of Watts)
required to *fish* adds the bill with another 10$ per month.

Are you?

Exclamation Excuses, Shmexcuses

You big sharers are my gods! I'm sharing my puny 10 gigs at the moment and adding another 30 gig drive for my small contribution...and up' more than I down'. But tell me this doesn't burn your ***:
The machine can be on 24/7 with say 20 requests; for a full day, I'm lucky at times to get 2-3 partial d/l's---naturally though, it's upping constantly. So it can take weeks (even with DSL) to down' a large rare file. Add to that the following scenario: I'm lucky enough to connect to a 850MB file---one instance available only; I manage to get 50%-425MB then the user decides not to share the file for 7-10 days for whatever reason. During that time I share that partial with 10 other users, before my original guy comes back on. So now 10 others having the same 425MB, are competing with me to complete the D/L. Too bad, 'cause if I could have completed mine, we'd have 2 complete instances of the file to share not to mention the fact that when it's a popular file I'll copy it and share it from another machine...Anyway, this is a rant forum, right?
