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.

take the above as a warning shot across your bow...the precursor to giving you an official warning if you keep it up...which of course is a precursor to being banned

lol you Americans are funny. How can you give a red card for an infraction? In every sport I know a red card would mean banned. You are supposed to give a yellow card.

Last couple posts off topic a little lol ... but the person in question was warned via an infraction, which is a point warning system (yes similar to a yellow card) & is sent via PM. The person's response is what caused them to be temporarily punished. (eg: like telling the referee/umpire what they thought about the yellow card, usually gets them into more trouble. It's times like that they need to keep a level head & just accept the warning. )

AL: I haven't been on this forum for awhile,so straight away your post drew Me in. You see I was thinking I was going to see yet another Burnt-out Rouge-Mod stepping outta line,but after reading this thread from top to bottom I can't see how You could think anyone was outta line but you!
I mean here was a N00B asking how to accomplish video playback & the guys who answered him were 100% dead-on,not a single doubt about that.
Now I'll grant you that the codec packs mentioned aren't recommended by the power user's over at Afterdawn or Doom9 as to be the best to install on Windows since they have been known to cause problems with the OS & besides they're Bloat-ware.
But seeings how the poster is new to Compression/Decompression & playback of .avi files,any 1 of the codec packs mentioned would have suited his needs perfectly.

Codecs are used to compress videos for ease of storage & transport size. Once the file is relocated onto a medium like a dvd-5/9 or another hard drive it is then once again via Codecs decompressed for playback by the player(MPC or VLC). It's not the player that Compresses & Decompresses the avi but rather it's the Codec's job to do that for the player so that the player can then do it's job & play the file.
You don't have a clue as to what makes a video(avi.file) play or not! and how You could post on this forum & act like you do is beyond Me, I mean what were You thinking Dude? "A Codec will help it's what makes them play"
Your very first post in this thread was tainted with cynicism, Straight Up Dude You're Wrong On All Points!

All I install for "playback of My DVD's & almost all My video files" is ffdshow & MPC & then I if I need another codec then & only then do I install it.
Because as I understand it,for one to install all those codecs in one fell swoop is asking for trouble.
Anyway I don't know most of the mods here except the one's who've helped Me out aprox a year ago(you know who you are) but I can say he knew what I didn't & I'm sure all the Mods do or they wouldn't be Mods!
Keep Up the Good Work Guys.

One thing you failed to mention is that VLC is the very definition of bloatware. All codecs in it are only for VLC and it won't let any other player use it.

Also I would love to see a single post anywhere, where someone says CCCP has caused problems not related to VobSUB or because this person has two or more Codec Packs installed. The very reason I try to mention that in every single post where I recommend any Codec Pack.

Apart from that, I agree with every single point made.

Yeah Your rite & I did mentioned that Your insight was 100% dead on no doubt about that !
Here's a thread dealing with CCCP in that it has caused problems not related to VobSUB but then again these are what I would consider Power User'
