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 Shareaza v1.4 brings more Gnutella firsts

Shareaza, a.k.a. God's Gnutella servent is already well known as the place to find the very latest P2P innovations, and we're not about to disappoint with version 1.4. Shareaza has all the latest technology to give you a better downloading experience, combined with a sweet user interface that lets you do as much or as little as you want. Oh, and it's still free. Completely free in fact (no spyware, no ads, no crap).

In short, Shareaza rocks. Seriously, you'd be insane to use anything else. If you haven't tried Shareaza, check it out now at and see what you've been missing. Or if you're using an old version, upgrade to v1.4 to take advantage of:
  • Partial File Sharing - more download sources, better downloads
  • Real LIVE Upload Queuing - now busy hosts can actually be useful!
  • New ultra-friendly Home tab - and many more UI improvements
  • Library organiser - Shareaza now has the best file library manager around
  • More stability, more compatibility - thanks to beta testers
  • Merge search results - finer control for power users
  • Preview/copy in-progress files - doesn't matter if they're in-use
  • Filter by available source count
  • Improved chat, with more to come
  • New URI integration features, plus automated distributed upgrade system
  • Lots more

As usual there are also loads of other enhancements which have been suggested by Shareaza users. If you've got an idea you'd like to see, send it our way and we'll give it full consideration.

The above only lists new features in Shareaza 1.4 - if you haven't used Shareaza before, there's a whole lot more not even mention here. Shareaza still leads the field with its easy and powerful user interface, URL integration, download performance, advanced library management and much, much more.

Partial file sharing automatically shares the files you download, before they've even finished. This allows all users downloading a file to simultaneously share off each other, resulting in a faster and more efficient download experience. This is without doubt the biggest thing to happen to Gnutella downloads since swarming. Shareaza fully supports partial file sharing and downloading, and other Gnutella servents will no doubt follow in its footsteps. In the mean time, you can use Shareaza v1.4 to move to the next level of downloading performance with other Shareaza users, and still interact with older servents until they catch up.

Real LIVE Upload Queuing -- Until now, getting through to a busy host for a download was like trying to win a lottery designed for people with Internet connections much meatier than yours. Maybe you'd get through in 5 minutes, maybe a few hours, maybe never. But all that's about to change, as Shareaza v1.4 introduces live upload queuing. Now when you download off a Shareaza user serving a lot of popular files you automatically secure yourself a place in the upload queue, which no other users can steal. What's more, you can see exactly where you are in the queue (and how long it is) - all completely live. It's unreal. For the moment only Shareaza supports this new technology, but hopefully some other vendors will latch on to how unbelievably cool this is.

New Home Tab -- Shareaza's interface has always kicked serious ****, and now it kicks even more serious ***. The new Home tab in tabbed mode provides a simple yet powerful overview of the program, with easy to understand descriptions and links to important functions. But it's not a bloated web browser, and we haven't filled it up with useless ads.

Library Manager Upgrade -- Shareaza's library manager is by far the most powerful tool available in the P2P world, yet it's a part of the program many users have not really explored. It just got a whole lot cooler with the addition of an easy to use file type filter you can use to quickly locate and sort files of different types.

More stability, more compatibility -- Stability and performance are very important in a program that often stays running for a long period of time, so it's a high priority in Shareaza development. With the help of a large group of beta testers, we've resolved all of the common complaints from previous versions to bring you the most reliable and compatible Gnutella client.

There are also some cool new features for advanced users, such as the ability to manually merge search results that you think are compatible, preview in-progress files even if they're "in-use", filter by the number of available sources for more concise listings, and more. Yes there's always more.

Check Shareaza out now at, and never look back.

Thanks for the info. I'm trying it now.

Suggestion: Mike, can you do something about the amount of hosts? I have a very limited horizon. Thanks

Default web server troubles...

There is currently a problem with the site, an upstream routing problem apparently.

Here are some Shareaza v1.4 download locations:

Sorry for the inconvenience.. very unfortunate timing for this to happen just after the latest release!

Default Resource issues.

I upgraded to 1.4 and seem to have major screen refresh problems. Any idea why? I'm going back to 1.3 since it does not have the issues I am seeing on 1.4. Anyone have the same issues?
