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 for the tip

I am using it now, and it seems a very nifty package!
Time will tell more, obviously, but first impressions are very, very good.

I've only downloaded, though, so far. But hey, I've only had my shared files hashed for about 10 minutes

Wonder why they didn't call it Shareazad?
Guess they didn't want the word ad in their name!

Weirdness.......
I still have not uploaded anything, which is definitely not normal.
I usually average 10-20 uploaded files per hour......
Must be something that I have not yet properly configured


But, downloading like crazy! Amazing, really!

Anyone else out there with any experience using Shareaza?
I have a feeling that this one could quickly become popular.

No uploads? - If that's true I'll be blocking that one as well as Qtrax.

spams the network to get you those files

As usual for your posts, Mr. 64.24.x.x.x , you believe you have made some great point when in fact you are only displaying your arrogant ignorance. Let's see your evidence which you have personally collected and which you use to justify your comments here.
You are one of the bad one's around here who for some foolish reason believes himself to be anonymous. You are now tracked.
Cool it with the negativity. I said 'please' the first time I asked you this....... there will be no repeat of that word.

Don't understand why, but after having Shareaza running for about one hour, the uploads started - and they haven't stopped since then - it is working similar to Gnucleus for me in regards to uploads...... non-stop!
It's definitely no leech!
I think it's an Australian effort but with the site in Canada?
(Maybe to reduce ping time problems for the mass of users?)
Anyway, it sure is an interesting client..... still learning how to drive it!
Was there no pre-warning or notice that this was coming?

There are many things to like about it..... must be something wrong somewhere, hmmmmmm?
Also note that there seems to be, in the hours I have been able to observe, a very much more general spread of connects to different clients..... no clustering or grouping! Nice.

Ursula, the God of this forum. What the hell was so wrong with my opinion of this client?
It's very obvious that it spams the network with more queries to get it's results. How else can it do this? Magic?
It's obvious to me, but since you are a "big wig" here, you should spend your time monitoring it to see how it gets these "great" results. I have better things to do and have done this way too many times to want to do it again, and no one cares anyway when you find this out because they all "just want their files".
So this time, you do it and let me know if anyone cares.
Yes you like this client, and now you won't let others post their opinion?
By the way, you are the one who is more anonymous here, I have no idea who or why they gave you moderator status, or who you are, or what your IP is but yet you get to know everything about everyone else here.
Power corrupts. I can't call you any names like you call me because you have the delete button, must be nice.
Also, where do we draw the line? What is too negative? Will you delete any post that has a strong opinion that isn't along the lines with yours?

Name calling, and personal attacks like the one you just made against me should not be tolerated. Strong opinions? That's just life. This thread is now logged, even if you edit it, there is a original.

By the way, a IP address only has FOUR numbers in it.

We have more than ONE moderator here... we all talk about what to delete and what not - and we NEVER will delete OPINIONS!

About your name callings, I don´t see them here, Ursula is a mod and has to respect the same rules, if not the posts will be edited too...

Have fun!
