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.

Exclamation Shareaza is getting 580-800 Kbps...



Shareaza is giving me 580-800 Kbitps. 395MBybes 9-15 sources.

395 Megs in about two hours.

I've never seen transfers this fast.

I must admit, I was skeptical at first, and the thing wouldn't connect for a while, but now... this blows everything else away.

Damn.

It's connected to bearshare, limewire, shareaza, everything.

Bearshare seems to connect mostly to bearshare only.

If this continues, I hope Bearshare, Limewire implement Gnutella2 also.

It's not fast because it's using "Gnutella2"; it's fast for other reasons.

Default gnutella / gnutella2 standards fragment?

hmm really?

i did some searching/reading for gnutella2, it seems shareaza just went ahead and implemented it without discussing it with the rest of the gnutella community.

is they going to start some breakdown of standards, along the lines of html..?

although it seems to interoperate very nicely with many other gnutella clients, i'm uploading and downloading from them just fine.

Alright well the reason why it appears to go so fast is because it is set to display download speeds in bits per second, not Bytes per second like most are used to seeing on the internet. There are 8 bits in every byte, so 300kb/s is really 37.5kB/s. You can change how it shows this representation in one fo the settings.

I am a shareaza user, havent really used much else since I found shareaza. IMHO it is the best client out there right now, Mike did an excellent job on the g2 protocol. I think he did sort of go behind the back of the gdf to get his protocol out, but I also think it was necessary. Gnutella seems to be advancing faster and faster since Mike released g2, this appears to have been a way to push g1 t some changes. I think that sometime in the future the g1 and g2 networks will merge to once again form a single gnutella. I encourage everyone to try it for themselves and see what they think. I know from my personal experience it is the best thing I have used, and the icing on the cake is that there is absolutely no spy/adware that comes with it. It is a clean program that will not bog your computer down with all that ad/spyware crap.

As long as they are not using 100% of the upstream bandwith, uploads do not affect downloads seriously.
