Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Question Does Limewire ever respond to problems in this forum?

I wrote about a problem with installation about 2 weeks ago, and still, no response. Is there a direct e-mail to the company? Do they read the posts? Do the moderators respond?

I'm very frustrated!

-pro support is offered at http://www.limewire.com/english/content/proform.shtml (these forums are a community of all sorts of people--sure not like a customer service department, eh?

-sometimes one of the paid developers post here just like the rest of us . . . often on their off hours. We sure pay attention when they do, even if they don't always get the appreciation they deserve.

-the moderators respond when threads need, well, moderation.

Looks like your post was seen by quite a few people, but looks like no one had an answer for you. I'm just a mac user, and have never used LW on Windows. Just happened by and noticed your post.

As you probably saw from reading the other threads, the usual advice is to uninstall the old and download the new, and post with the operating system, connection kind, and versions to give others a sense of where the problem is.

I hope a Windows user can help. Post back with more details and somebody should have some idea of what you could do.

Cheers

I've tried deleting...etc. I'm frustrated because I'm not a novice, yet can't figure it out.

I have noticed a lot of posters have the same issues...that's why I was wondering if LimeWire was paying any attention here.

I've also tried renaming the download...am trying that route again right now.

where do you find info on "error 1714 Windows 98"? Google showed some installers for other programs return that error when their older installer wasn't uninstalled and talked about needing a Windows 98 patch of some kind. Make any sense to you?

. . . just idle curiousity.

(nice sig--which Laurie Russo?)

Good luck with the install problems and the upcoming year . Hope someone can help. (Installing on computers at least is logical--kids are more rewarding but can be as frustrating! speaking as a teacher).

Before you patch your system, did you try deleting your old LimeWire installation?

If so, which installer did you use? The smaller English installer or the international installer? I find the international installer has a far greater error tolerancy, so your best chance is probably to try first deleting your old LimeWire installation manually (usually located at c:/program files/limewire) and if Windows is still causing trouble when you try to install the English installer, take the bigger international installer.

Default Your Installation Problem

Hi Laurie,

Have you tried installing the international version of LimeWire? This version uses a different type of installer and often works on systems where the English only cannot initially be installed.

Thanks!
