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.

I don´t think so. Others will also post magnet links. And if we would allow only some long timers to post links there would be a discussion why are they allowed to do it and not all members bla, bla...

For me, the only problem is about CC willing to do it.
CC is the minor problem if we find a practible way.

And it's not like we are going to create a forum for that as we ruled that out last time.
If we allow magnet links than only in a special forum, where we can overview them and only some "special" people could post there. IMO this is the only practible way, but who is allowed to post magnets? Of course only trusted people, but don´t count with the mods I am sure the most won´t post magnets, so we have to upgrade some senior mebers to magnet link posters. Will you make a list?

All other magnets besides this forum should be deleted.

I remember that I suggested this but nobody really agreed to it.

Hmm, thing is that newbies don't know how to post magnets that works. They would have to lurk here a while before knowing how. Probably that by the time they know how to do it, they would be responsible. Just like it's seems to be on shareaza forums. Maybe we should ask Kath if they have problems over there with abuse of copyrighted magnets...

Creating a forum only for magnets and rejecting magnets in others seems a difficult technical task for CC. I for one wouldn't know to proceed without kacking Vbulletin.

Ciao

New to our forum don´t mean that they have no experience. When you or me are joining a new forum they don´t know how much you or me know or don´t know...

Its absolut no problem. We do it the old way trash by view.

We just add a rules which forbids to post magnet links and that only "special" people are allowed to do it. This way we don´t need to check the links we just delete it.

The difference is that we aren´t responsible for shareaza forums, when the admi is living with the risk its his personal choice. btw do you know where their server is placed? This could be a very important point...

I can see the problem of mods verifying that magnets are legitimate.

So, what about allowing magnets that the poster declares to be legitimate? Undeclared magnets could be edited just as http ones are now, with a note to declare them.

Will CC allow magnets to be formatted properly now?

(and I'll take out the ones I posted earlier)

No way. Some users will always bend the rules, especially file sharers no law no rules... they could create fake accounts declare that the link is legitimate or they can declare the earth is a disk and we can´t do anything.

Now, wait, I'm confused. What is the difference between a magnet and http link again?

You implied that you have to download a magnet link but not an http one. Well I don't know about you, but my TCP/IP connection requires me to download an HTTP resource before I know what it is.

That being said, I've built a Gnutella Magnet URI Redirect Service for such scenarios. It only works for Gnutella at the moment.

Know the similarity between displaying in a browser and downloading to a file. Either way you are downloading. If we had better magnet browsers, we could use them akin to http browsers. In fact, magnet should be supported next to http and https.

Reading seems to be a big sience...

I said that I can check a http link within a few seconds. If you look in our rules we only allow links to "websites" which refer to the topic or to p2p, all others aren´t allowed and will be deleted.
