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 Gnutella 2 not connecting on shareaza...

Is gnutella down, fios intercepting, or what? It was all running fine till sometime last week and now all of a sudden, g1 & g2 don't connect... eDonkey2000 connects just fine. I tried to check it out on shareaza forums but their server seems to be down. I don't see anything wrong on my end...

So Long and Thanks for All the Files

Beware of the big 3 insurance companies in Texas! Read your policies carefully (maybe you'll need a lawyer) Allstate, Farmers & State Farm are overextended and their 'coverage' is worthless...a true waste of your money Read This

I'll let you all in on a little secret... it's called bittorrent. Once you have a bittorrent client, google: bandname discography torrent and you will find not only full albums you can download but every album the band makes! can u dig it?

couple things i had shareza like 2 years ago. i always had that connection problem. its always been liek that....

answering james who was talking about the lady who got sued....

she orders kazaa ok..she pays by credit card ,she gives them all her personal information.. then she sets there and downloads music like ....well cant say names on this but some 80s rock bands and some big time hip hop stars...she gets a note in the mail like 2 weeks later ,stating every song she downloaded times and dates and a letter saying that charges where going to be filed against her if she did not stop....

I told her retarted are you to set there and give out all your personal information to a company whos product lets you download pirated music....and think there not gonna bust you for it. i mean thats common since...the people who are mainly geting busted are people who are stupied and they pay a fee like say 20 dollars a month to use said file share product then they download pirated music and think oh well ..even tho they no where i live,they have my social sercurity number, telephone number they wont get me...the people who get caught are the stupied people who pay for the sharing networks.....

if your gonna down load music that your not suposed to it from one where they dont have any info on you ..where they dont even know you exist

and my aunt, shes still downloading the music. and her dumbness will end up in the slammer . goes to show
some people have a pea sized brain

There's a reasonable chance your Shareaza is firewalled and unable to obtain/sustain connections as a result.
Check some suggestions here: Shareaza FAQ - MOST COMMON PROBLEMS AND QUESTIONS and scroll down to how to open ports and port forwarding sections.

Also check

You can also check for any 3rd party security programs you might have installed to see if Shareaza is on their 'allowed' list for connecting to the internet.
