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.

Wink Freeloaders see your mistake

Freeloaders see your mistake

I have been using bearshare and have recently switched to limewire. But both systems suffer from the same problem and that is lack of choice due to freeloaders. Don't you people realise by not sharing your files you are the ones who ulitimatly suffer as you prevet the size of the file sharebase from expanding at its maximum rate meaning thre is less chance of you getting the tunes you want in the future as only a few people will share music you may well want. The whole point of such systems is that we don't have to pay a monetry price for music instead we pay a moral price and that is commen human deacncy. sharing is what allowed Napster to start the ball rolling don't let guntella become the ball that stops at the foot of the hill. We all know that some times its nice to have our firewalls up so we can just download at our maximum rate but ask yourself how often do you notice someone else taking from you. You can put a limit on uploads but please lets not make that limit zero.
It really comes down to your own ideas on the spirit of file sharing if you don't like the idea of sharing just think how worse off you would be if you had to fork out money for every download. Then you would only benefit the cretins who shut down napster. do you want to do that?
please think about this and help guntella prosper and not flounder.

P.S if this posting seems familier its 'cos i put it on the wrong forum first.

P.P.S I cant see any responces from freeloaders don't you have the strenght to voice an opinion on your pig ignorance

Default Paying through the nose

I agree with what your saying except you mentioned the monetry costs. We all pay in someway to download. (Well, most of us)

I more than some, only having a modem, plus the fact that the ISP I have an account with, wont let me connect to LW. The one which will let me connect to LW, I have to pay for by the minute on my phone bill.

So you can imagine what my thoughts are on people that set their uploads to low. The only ones that can get away scott free are the 'clever *****' who know all the angles on how to cheat the system.

There is only one thought that cheeers me up - people don't download from me 'cos I have modem, so I don't feel guilty about setting mine low - but I do check every now and then on the off-chance that some desperate person might want to. And when/if that happens I will increase the upload. Even though it will cost me money.

Yes, and why don't you register - stand up and be identified - or are you afraid of making a foxes paw in public.


P.S.(I made lots of foxes paws in public - don't care a jot)

P.P.S Maybe this is another!! Ha! Ha!

It might be because they are both running on the same network.
We all know that some times its nice to have our firewalls up so we can just download at our maximum rate but ask yourself how often do you notice someone else taking from you.
I never go on the internet without a firewall, but somehow I managed to share my files and upload 50 GBytes to the Network in seven days.
You can put a limit on uploads but please lets not make that limit zero.
I think the limit might have been more then zero though.
It really comes down to your own ideas on the spirit of file sharing
I thought everyone's mom taught them to share their toys.
