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 v1.5 released, and it's sexier than ever

Shareaza v1.5 is sexier than ever

Really, it is. Even if you don’t normally find yourself attracted to software, Shareaza 1.5 will be the exception. The new search interface combines simplicity with power and performance to deliver the best P2P experience in town. If you’re not using Shareaza, stop wasting your time and download it now.

In true Shareaza style, it’s now possible to choose between two completely different search views so you can use Gnutella the way you want to. Check it out:

Cool huh? But that’s not all. The entire search system has been completely torn down and rebuilt from the ground up, delivering a whole new level of performance. Searching for something with 5000+ results? No problem, the new Shareaza takes loads like this in its stride. Everything is done cleanly in real-time, with real time filtering, grouping and sorting – none of that manual sort crap.

Ever run a search that you wanted to come back to later on, but had to turn off your PC? You’ll have to do it all over again, right? Wrong. Shareaza 1.5 now saves all your searches AND your search results. It even saves composite searches, filtering conditions, schemas and metadata columns. In fact it pretty much saves everything – and automatically starts collecting NEW results next time you connect! You might not realise how cool this is until you see it in action – but it really is cool.

We've also added new metadata tooltips! Now its easy to get the low-down on any file you like without having to mess with your columns – simply point to it with your mouse, and an easy to read information box will appear describing the file. Plus there’s the all new searchbar which makes it even easier to download files, check Bitzi™ tickets and even filter or refine your search results, all without leaving the window or dealing with complicated menus. Just point and click!

Up until now Gnutella downloads have been pretty boring to watch. Shareaza always had the cool fragment display on the transfers page, but lets be honest, we generally have better things to do. But what if you still want to keep track of an important download? The answer is the new Shareaza download monitor window:

Now downloading from Gnutella is just as easy as downloading from the web! The monitor window automatically appears after clicking a Shareaza-powered web-link, or it can be shown for specific downloads from the old transfers window. You can see a graphical view of the file complete with estimated time remaining, and a live bandwidth graph. And now you can send the monitor window to the system tray, place it “always on top” and even remote control the download without having to open up Shareaza! Just right-click for the usual options.

Of course, these aren’t the only new features in Shareaza – as always we’ve taken into account all of the great suggestions from Shareaza users, and added heaps. There’s still more to come, but if you have a suggestion, please send it our way. With your help, Shareaza is building the future of Gnutella and peer-to-peer networking.

And if you haven’t used Shareaza before, we haven’t even scratched the surface of its immense array of cool features in this news story. Real live upload queues, partial file sharing, ultrapeers, metadata second to none.. you name it we’ve got it. Check out to find out why everyone is so excited about this application.
