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.

A lot of forums have the option for the treadstarter to mark it as solved when he/she/it? is happy with the replies.

Wouldn't it be a very good idea to have it here too. Especially since this forum mostly deals with problems with P2P software.

I think it would make the forums much more userfriendly

don't you ?

I have seen one or two forums that run like that. But I was under the impression it was the moderators who decided when a thread should finish & when the topic was starting to deviate from the original question(s) & thus split it off into another thread. (I think they also had a rating system. Or perhaps that was another forum, where points were awarded for interesting & relevant threads & answers. I'm not sure I especially liked the concept or the way it came across as a visitor. But then I haven't been involved with it so I don't know how well it works & how annoying that might be to some people.)

But I see your point & an interesting & relevant one. It could certainly be helpful to members. But then again, there's too many members who just jump in & post a new thread without searching their topic for answers, or looking at the stickies which already have 80+% of most popular questions answered, or reading the forum rules. It is no exageration that over 90% of questions asked on the forum from day to day have been asked before.

I do not mean that the tread will be closed, if it is marked as solved. There can easyly be other answers that are better than the one that helped the treadstarter.

It will just mean that the original post has been answered, which means that the tread will not be relevant to many that, as of now will open the tread just to find out after reading through all the posts that it has been answered.

I am a member of another Forum where it is an option, and it really saves time.

Forum moderators could also mark treads as solved incase the treadstarter hasn't done so, if he/she has written a reply saying that it is resolved.

LOTR check out Daniweb IT Community Its a similar site allthough much bigger which deals with techissues and malwareproblems etc.

They use that option and it works great

Sleepless, get rid of your signature, please. It's technically wrong, disgusting and offensive thus violating the forum rules.

It may or may not be offensive to freeloaders. i think that freeloaders hurt the network, thus the less there is of them the better. I want them to think about what they are doing, and maybe change their settings. Gnutella was made for P2P sharing not freeloading.

I don't think it's technically wrong. It's the God honest truth

As to disgusting and violating the forum rules I don't really know what you mean ???

P.S. If you are a happy sharer you shouldn't be offended at all

I like the idea that the original poster can add a quick check when the question is answered.

Might be a way of reassuring respondents that the original poster has seen the answer, and is reasonably satisfied.

Currently we don't know if the answer worked unless the poster takes the time to write an aknowledgement.

This would also help others looking at the thread.
