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.

anyone can be a bad peer, it doesn't matter what client you use. but with shareaza you can see all that going on in the system menu, and it lets you switch between 0.4 network and 0.6 network so you can connect more peers. i say shareaza isn't another parasite like Qtrax.

I hate to say this, I really, really hate to say this but...

Vinnie has to be given some credit for holding back all this time on re-queries when he could have made his client "more popular" by increasing the results through massive queries.
I don't know if it's because he knows he would get ragged on big time, or if he hates re-queries. From his previous posts about re-queries I would say he hates them.
No excuses for the other crazy stuff he has done though.

And don't forget that selectively blocking clients can also move you around the network to find those rare files.

Ah yes?

And who tells you which clients have the rare files?

You know that the most people will use this feature for blocking clients they don´t like not for finding rare files...

I agree with Moak, a Shareaza Forum should be added as soon as possible. It's technology is quite advanced - no other servent has Multisourcing, Ultrapeers, Hashes, Metadata and Flow Control, and it definetely returns more search results than Gnucleus. It seems indeed to be the best Gnutella servent I have tried so far, it's even close to KaZaA. Being bugfixed and better known to the public, it could attract many new users...I have to admit though that i get suspiciously few uploads, other users have observed the same. this should certainly be investigated closer, yet i don't think this one is a leecher.

I'm definitely in favor of creating a Shareaza forum. We’ve received some terrific support from many generous individuals and sites, but overall it’s been very difficult to promote Shareaza widely. Most of the sites listing Gnutella clients do not list Shareaza. It just goes to show that offering cutting edge technology is only the first step, and doesn’t do much good unless people know about it!

I’ve read most of the comments here and really appreciate the support you guys have given Shareaza. I’ve also seen some questions raised about whether it “plays fair” with the Gnutella network, etc, and so I plan to write a good technically-minded response to that soon. Rest assured that Shareaza plays very fair indeed.

In fact unlike many Gnutella clients, Shareaza does not discriminate in any part of its operations. It does not employ “friendly vendor clustering”, proprietary handshakes, selective search responses or download favoritism. Nor does it use any aspect of the Gnutella protocol to produce an unfair (and disruptive) advantage for users. Shareaza requeries only when specifically requested by the user, or when looking for a specific file (which uses a highly specific SHA1 search, and is still throttled to avoid excessive load). It also goes to reasonable lengths to clean up network traffic if it is performing a routing role (traditional node or Ultrapeer) by filtering packets, prioritizing transmissions, decoding and re-encoding to ensure standard compliance, etc.

The advantage you get by using Shareaza comes from its efforts to squeeze the most out of the Gnutella protocol and all its vendor-specific variations, not abusing the network with selfish traffic. The high performance of searches in Shareaza are a result of its ability to work with and understand several competing data formats promoted by different Gnutella vendors, all in a unified manner. Rather than just supporting its own features and standards, it’s built to understand everyone else’s as well, so you basically get the “best of every world”.

A lot of people have found that Shareaza does really well in the download area too, but once again that isn’t the result of any unfair play. It doesn’t hammer hosts or use any unethical tricks. Unlike many other clients which have had to tack new features onto existing code, Shareaza’s download core was designed from scratch to support optimized fragment acquisition and efficient scheduling. From what I’ve seen, it has the most sophisticated mechanism out there. (and for good reason – I use a 28.8k modem, the faster the better!)

Anyway, thanks again for the support and many suggestions we’ve received. The current Shareaza release is 1.0.2.2, however in the next day or two we should see a new major release which is very, very cool. I’m pretty sure Shareaza already sports more features than any competing product, but there’ll be absolutely no doubt about that soon. Everything happens faster, you get more control, and yeah.. its good.

You should send CycloCide a PM, this is the fastest way and perhaps you want to be a mod in this forum?

I have Shareaza [edit: version 1.0.2.2] running in the background for 5h30m now, yet i only got one single upload request, and that was for an extremely rare file (a french rock band from the 80's)...i'm sharing lots of music, most of it is far more popular, yet noone uploads it. this is definitely not normal, nor does it happen with any other gnutella servent. using gnucleus i have at least one upload per hour (that's not much either, but i'm on ISDN). i suspect there must be some bug in the upload code, i see no other explanation.

My experience with uploads is the same, not a lot when compared to others (gnucleus, phex)
