Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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 where to now??

i only downloaded xolox a month ago after finally deciding to use an alternative to audiogalaxy since searches had become so complicated. i use winmx as well but i'v heard s much about other p2p filesharers - has anyone got any acurate info about whats good for who and whats not. maybe we can get a usefull thread started for those who are now left looking for an alternative.

just to get started...

winmx

- you simultaneously connect through the decentralized WinMX Peer Networking Protocol and to many networks based on the OpenNap and Napster protocols.
you can share and download any filetype and also it tracks and resumes broken transfers.
theres the ability to throttle upload and download bandwidth along with upload and download bandwidth graphs(in my view they look pretty but theres not much you can do with them-or if there is i'v yet to find out)
Per-user and over-all upload AND download queuing
Full chat capabilities including op commands
Multiple docking window interface great for hi-res and multi-monitor systems
Close program or shutdown computer (Win9x only) when transfers finish
Compatible with most LAN configurations
(soz-i got bored typing it in so i'v just copied the rest of the spec)

most importantly it contains NO SPYWARE!!!
you are also given more than enough information about the file you are downloading. if its a song you get the length, size, bitrate, frequency, the user supplying it, their type of modem, and how available it is.
the download speed, as with all these tools, varies according to lots of things but i'v found it to be generally good - not always as good as xolox could b but better than audiogalaxy

so - thats my contribution, anyone else going to add something??

Hi!

- audio galaxy contains spyware

- winMX is good but have no multiple downloads

- morpheus will be closed

- eDonkey is left

- and a new Gnutella client will be released in the next weeks...

All other clients are not worth to be mentioned with Xolox!

Could it be cultiv8r?

Some links you probably wouldn't find right away:

http://www.cultiv8r.com/cultiv8r/cultiv8rextension.html
http://www.cultiv8r.com/cultiv8r/connectback.html

Of course, these are from June, so things may have changed some... Oh, and if you realy want to dig, 'cause I'm not gonna do it for you: have fun.

{edit}

or maybe it's the client mentioned here...

The first alpha is finished but actually without multi download...

the first working alpha with multi should be finished in two weeks!

It is planed to release the version with:

- multi download
- auto-research
- auto-resume
- etc.

If you love Xolox you will love this new client!

Don´t expect a public beta within the next six weeks...

Morgwen

P.S.:

Seeker, Iamacho do you have some programming backround?
We can need some help!

First a question: Are you working on the new client?

And my answer to your question. I am currently in the beginning stages of learning C++, but I dont know if you qualify that as having any backround. and i am sure that you got a good laugh out of that one. I am sure that I wont be any help in programming, but if you think that there is anything else that I can do for you, let me know (iamnacho@hotmail.com) and I believe that The Seeker is willing to test products (as am I). Stay in touch and good luck.

Default anonymous

I posted in the Rants section about being black listed by my ISP (Charter Pipeline Cable Access) for using a Gnutella client. So I will NOT be using one unless it's possible to make one that's anonymous. The only ones I know of are Guerilla and FreeNet but I can't get either of them to phuckin work.
