Forum Rules

Support Forums

Before you post to one of the specific Client Help and Support Conferences in Gnutella Client Forums please look through other threads and Stickies that may answer your questions. Most problems are not new. The Search function is most useful. Also the red Stickies have answers to the most commonly asked questions. (over 90 percent).
If your problem is not resolved by a search of the forums, please take the next step and post in the appropriate forum. There are many members who will be glad to help.
If you are new to the world of file sharing please do not be shy! Everyone was ‘new’ when they first started.

When posting, please include details for:
Your Operating System ....... Your version of your Gnutella Client (* this is important for helping solve problems) ....... Your Internet connection (56K, Cable, DSL) ....... The exact error message, if one pops up
Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you. To aid helpers in solving download/upload problems, LimeWire and Frostwire users must specify whether they are downloading a torrent file or a file from the Gnutella network.
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.

Thanks Morgwen, you are one of the more level headed moderators here.
The name calling is the "arrogant ignorance" part, which is uncalled for because I have done the research on other clients before and have seen this already, so my comment was based on actual monitoring experience with previous clients. I know what I am talking about, just because I am not "registered" doesn't mean I don't know what I am talking about.
I don't think registering and adding a "title" to a made up screen name makes me any more experienced.
My experience and knowledge may cause some arrogance. And my frustration with all this probably causes some negativity to come out since no one seems to care about anything but how many search results come back to guage a client's abilities.

Also, I know I am not "anon" to the moderators, it says "logged" to the right of each message. I am not blind. However, having a strong opinion, a negative one, or even one that a moderator doesn't like is not a violation of the forum rules is it?
And now moderators are "tracking" users? What's that about?

We don´t track users, this is a vBulletin standard feature... we can ONLY see the IP of the users!

Listen up, 64.24.x.x.x

Have you actually run Shareaza for any sufficient hours to make your comments?
No.
I have.
I am far more than merely capable to casually observe the behaviour of this client...
I await your experienced opinion.
It is well-behaved and well thought out......
I think it is a real 'threat' to some of the established clients.....
Try it for a day or more and then make comment... not suppositions.

You have made comments which are nothing above knee-jerk reactions... Don't get me wrong, I am more than capable of behaving the same way, but this is a semi-public place and there must be some degree of responsibility shown towards others.
This is why your IP is most definitely on the siren-call list for now.
Hopefully you will like to remove it by simply being polite with others and perhaps, on a more personal note, counting to 10.000 before you post

I hope this client doesn´t send agressive queries like Qtrax (I read something like this!)... we will see what our experts will discover!

Morgwen, check out all of the settings and observe how it handles re-queries.
It is, I see so far, a well behaved client... As I have mentioned before, it is almost too good to be true, so I can understand the scepticism that others may show for it......
But, I will NOT except unfounded and unproven negative comments which blast away at another client, no matter what or whom that client may be.
Gnutella Network is about development and it is foolish in the extreme to permit unwarranted attacks on new clients based solely on supposition and no adequate observed evidence.

If this particular unregisterd 'braiser' wishes to carry on his crusade, there are several established clients which are ripe for the 'roasting'.

And that is your opinion, and a strong one at that, but being a moderator doesn't give you the right to attack my opinion using your "powers" to edit and even delete my posts.
Then you threaten me with some sort of "watch list"? Your power has corrupted you, and should be taken away.
You have only been here (by your registration) a month now, what gives you the right and the knowledge to say I don't know from experience that something's wrong here.
It was a simple comment and you blew up.
I still think your comments are "unfounded and unproven" simple, non technical observations that this client doesn't spam the network to get it's magical results.
Have you monitored packets? Do you even know how to do that? I am not going to do it for you, I would have gotten to it, but not now.
"this is a semi-public place and there must be some degree of responsibility shown towards others."
How about some responsibility shown by people who are given "super moderator" status?
I have not broken any forum rules here, are there any for moderators?

"there are several established clients which are ripe for the 'roasting'" another threat? What is this about?
