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.

Angry Low download comparing to high upload!

I use gtk-gnutella. I upload files constantly at 50-60K as both in leafnode and as ultra-peer, but my download rate rarely reach over 4 K!!
I share about 5 Gb of files and that shouldn't be too low, when I'm constantly uploading to the limit.
My client gets a ******* ban from some of the ******* Shareaza crap servers!! But, I get no reason why.

I upload constantly and have NO discusting illegal porno ****, just good music, softwares, ordinary movies and some nice ordinary porno pictures and movies with beautiful women.

Do they ban me cause I'm not using Shareaza?? That would be the largest crap of all in that case.

How do I send messages to the server operators with gtk-gnutella? I don't find that option.

I use both of those applications: Shareaza on windows and gtk-gnutella on linux. However, I never had toubles downloading from gtk-gnutella in Shareaza, and neither downloading from Shareaza in gtk-gnutella. Both works fine for me.

Shareaza does not ban gtk-gnutella, because it has no reason to do so and it wouldn't be fair. The reason that you can't download off some Shareaza clients is the following: Shareaza can connect to multiple networks and many people only use some of the networks that Shareaza supports. This means that some Shareaza users will not enable the Gnutella network, but use some other network instead, like eDonkey2000, G2 or BitTorrent. And Shareaza can be configured to not upload or download from networks that are not being connected to. Therefore, if you use a Gnutella client like gtk-gnutella, you can't download from a Shareaza client that has Gnutella disabled and that doesn't allow uploads to networks that aren't connected. But that's only fair, because those Shareaza clients won't download from Gnutella either and therefore won't download from gtk-gnutella.

Shareaza has always used the same policy when deciding which clients to upload to and which clients to download from. When Shareaza downloads from client X, it will also upload to X. (On a per-user basis of course.)

Are you sure you are banned Guest2000? As jlh said, Raza doesn't ban others. What they do, however is giving very crappy download speeds when any because of their idiotic idea of multinetwork simultaneously. I admire Mike, but boy that decision was stoopid.

I'm a little curious here. If a Shareaza client has disabled Gnutella, will they still appear on the Gnutella network in searches by gnutella clients? If so then they'd be phantoms giving the gnutella user delusions of potential files available & downloadable without the knowledge or any clues that they can't downld these files.

The results don't appear.

They don't. Shareaza never sends out Gnutella search results when not connected to Gnutella. However, there is another way that sources will spread around: The alternate source mesh. Unfortunately, sources from different networks may get mixed up in that source mesh, making G2-only sources appear in a Gnutella-only context. I'm not very sure about the current situation of this problem, and unlike what I was thinking first, this might have been taken care of already to some degree. However, fixing this problem in the various clients does not solve this problem yet. It's enough that some people use old clients (which are possibly buggy or misbehaving) of their favourite p2p client and this may cause G2 sources to appear in Gnutella context again. And of course, Gnutella clients have not much other choice than to believe the information they get.

I guess one of the best thing to do here is to tell everyone that use old clients to upgrade to the newest version. Or if some clients are still mixing up alternate sources, they must be fixed.

et voilà says Shareaza gives crappy speeds. But remember that while the upload bandwidth will get spread across all connected networks, the very same is also true for the download bandwidth, thus there's nothing unfair about it. Plus, by doing this, Shareaza acts as a nice bridge between different p2p networks; i.e. this brings contents of for example the eDonkey2000 network into the Gnutella network and the other way around.

False. THAT'S unfair, and you know it jlh, I'm sorry for you. You probably know that upload bandwidth is THE limiting factor, the download speed for majority of users isn't. And Raza is defavoring Gnutella with the upload bandwidth split since they prefer respect ED2K and BT than Gnutella, hence the stoopid queues and the shitty speeds. The Shareaza bridge sucks big time and only frustrate users by giving the illusion they can get stuff while they can't. Stop lying please. That's pathetic among the Raza users.

I mean, get real and welcome to real world

Sorry to sound frustrated jlh, but man SOME don't get it, even if I know you are far from being a newbie. The RAZA app really creates a reality distortion field...

Well, this is your opinion. I have mine, which is a different one and for me it's not lying. Obviously we don't agree.

I don't think it's worth starting a discussion about this here, unless you feel it's necessary.
