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 A Forum for Acquisition


I stumbled upon Acquisition recently, and it seems to be a stable and good working (and especially good looking) Program for MacOSX.

So I'd sure be glad, if it had its Forum here on gnutellaforums.

I think Acquisition has no forums yet because it's a Limewire clone.

It may be like Limewire, but it is a far far better client.
It is written specifically for the Cocoa environment, not in Java. Consequently it runs faster and does not take up all the processor cycles like Limewire.

It doesn' t have all the features of Limewire, but it is getting there and I will consider paying for it.

Default sadly really a clone of LW

Aquisition uses the Limewire Code, and it doesn't do any improvements on its own.

It might be far better to use and have a much better user Interface, but it uses the same core.

I'd prefer it using the phex code, but I doubt that that will happen.

stief has a spectacular aura about

Many users seem to think Limewire and Acquisition are separate, even antagonistic, clients. If the Acq users could be recognized as a legitimate Gnutella participants (just a link to the Aquisition forums, it might help moderate a growing sense of sour evangelism.

Perhaps clients should be listed by core first. This would make both Limewire, Acquisition, and (?) subdivisions of Java.

Really though, I suspect new users look for platform headings first.

I'd sign that.

Acqusition has a complete different feel from Limewire, though.

I think it is because the UI of Limewire is written in Java, the one of Acquisition MacOSX native.
So it feels much smoother, and reaction times seem to be faster.

The point is "seem to be". I don't think that the core is really faster, but I get much better reactions.

Why doesn't someone write a Windows-Program, which just serves as a GUI for Limewire, thus circumventing Java for displaying?

Acq. is exactly that, but for the Mac.
And it is great!

I sense no such sense growing.

But anyways, I would not support an Acquisition forum here on this site. We have our own site, and it's best left that way.

But how about a link to the Acq. Forum on this site? Maybe in the Limewire Forum a list of clones with forums?

Cool No need for Acquisition forum here

No need to duplicate the content or split the Acquisition user community.

For my 2¢, Acquisition is the best performing client I've tried on Mac OS X. I've also tried Phex and Limewire.

I've been a loyal Limewire user (even bought Pro) since early 2001, but I've been frustrated by Limewire's windowing performance on the Macintosh - which seems to have gotten worse. I can't run Limewire on my Mac anymore because it ends up stealing all my machine's CPU cycles.

I'm curious why this is - Phex is also a Java application but it is much more responsive.

Will make a post to the Limewire forum.

Default acquisition


since I switched from PC to Mac acquisition is the only p2p that performs well on my MacBook so I am quite interested in a forum for it. If you guys feel it does not belong here, can you refer me to a forum about it that I can join? Recently I have a lot of downloads left incomplete by a system crash and I wonder whether there is any way I can kind of ´feed´ them back to acquisition (or any other tool that will do it) so it will pick up downloading them without losing the data already collected.

(I am not a coder, but the way I see it if a p2p tool adds data to an existing file from a remote host, this should technically be the same like adding it from a local source)

Any comments?
