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.

Thumbs up Xolox and Gnutella development

Hi Xolox developer, Pasman,

thx for bringing up Xolox! It was not only a fast & nice client, it also has been fun bringing in own experience and ideas into development!
Right now the Xolox team is busy (good luck with all other projects!), so I hope the gnutella development will not stuck as it did the last 6 month. I also hope more coders and developers will find a way into this forum, so we can discuss ideas for Gnutella's future. Meanwhile I will reduce my posts. Happy sharing!

So long, Moak

Remember the state it was in last year at this time? Gnutella seems to die regularly this time of year! ;-)

Peers that don't keep up will just disappear - anyone remember TodeNode? It's really unfortunate to see Lime go the SpyWare route since they always seemed like a class act, but it's open source and if they don't make their users happy someone else will.

As for BearShare, I stopped using it almost a year ago when it seemed to me Vinnie wanted to turn the entire gnet into FalcoNet (TM).

Why? Yeah, I have a new job as pizza baker and for hot jamaican food on a seaside oil platform and it is not possible to get regular internet access here.

No, I'm kidding. I expect that Gnutella development again is slowed down and found out that most developers are not interested or have not enough time to listen to my ideas. So I spent more time for other interesting nerd stuff... and watched more TV.

Default Yes, thanks...

As Moak said: "thx [for XoloX]".

I may seem a little critical of it at times, generally due to the frustration level of crashes. But hey: I'm use XoloX as my primary gnutella client, so that says *something* for it.

At least, now that I'm running it under WinXP Pro, it doesn't cause my entire system to randomly reboot (as it does under Win2k Server). That makes it a little less infuriating to play with.

If I may make one *tiny* suggestion, it would be to put a public ETA on the next release. Then, stick with it and release, whether you have all the features you wanted in there or not. I haven't seen an update since I started using this thing, and that's not good (considering the number of catastrophic-level crashes all of my friends and I are seeing). The longer you leave it in this state, the more people are going to permanently associate it with the word 'buggy'.

I understand that its hard to get time to do these things; Lord knows I should have completely rewritten the Bliss32 interface by now. But, that's not a bug-type issue. When bugfixes are involved, I've found it best to make them quick and often (I've made bug-fix releases within 24 hours of learning of bugs in a new release and it *really* curbs the flames).

In closing: I think you're off to a good start, and I'm sure everyone here is looking forward to seeing future releases of XoloX.
