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.

Unhappy Saved files added to iPod become empty after iPod update!

I joined MyMusic.com yesterday and paid for a lifetime membership. After spending hours searching, downloading, and saving files, after sending the files to my iPod all the songs in every saved file but the very first saved file somehow vanish. Why have the songs in the first saved file remained yet all the others have vanished. The files upload to my iPod without any trouble but when but during the following "update" I get a message that certain songs could not be updated beause the files could not be found. When I open the files to check the songs the files are empty!
I'm running Windows XP Home and the latest version of LimeWire. What the heck am I doing wrong? Needless to say I am very frustrated over the hours wasted. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated ... Thanks!!!

You know don't you that MyMusic.com is a scam site! See Membership? - **WARNING ** BEWARE** - Download p2p Clients ONLY Thru Official Sites

You paid your money for what - the free version of Limewire (- no not Lime wire.)

Or perhaps you can tell MyMusic.com to set up their own forum. lol

Search iPod on the forum.

For windows you'll need to add the songs to LW's library 1st. You can drag & drop them from LW's downld folder onto the iTunes app. This will physically add them to iTunes own library. LW's downld folder can be found out by going to LW's menu Tools>Options>Saving. For immediate access go to LW's Library window & click on Saved Files folder & again on any file to the right of it. Then press the Explore button & this folder will open up for you.

I just somehow deleted half my post before posting it. lol The LW Playlist within iTunes is purely a reference to the files in LW's downld folder. iPod will require that music exists within iTunes library. So, use the above technique or try this & tell me if it works: go to iTunes menu & select Advanced & scroll down to Consolidate library. This will copy all of iTunes playlist music to its own library. I've never tried this with LW's playlist in iTunes but it should work. Tell me if it does.

I know one other technique that does work is to go select your Saved Files folder within LW's Library window & add (Enqueue button) them to LW's playlist within LW. Then save this as an m3u type file. Then use the import command within iTunes to import this playlist. Then consolidate the library. This definitely works but is a sloppy way of doing it!

I tried the consolidation method and it works but I agree, it is sloppy. Will try the drag n drop method next ...
Thanks again ... I now feel better about falling for the mymusic scam! At least I can get my downloads to stay on my iPod! :-)

I actually gave you 3 techniques. (1.) Of course the drag & drop.
(2.) Consolidate iTunes to see if the limwire that appears within iTunes playlist will copy its files to iTunes library folders.
(3). Create a playlist(s) within LW & export that as an m3u file. Import that file as a playlist & then consolidate iTunes. This way (& technique (1)) definitely works but I'm curious to know if technique (2) will also work. I'll try it myself in several hours to see if it does. Else you can try it & get back to us.
