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.

tanx for the reply! Yea after a days long investigating and mind numbing searches through these forums i realised i had two versions,dunno why the icon took me to the older one! Anyhow following the wrong advice from one of the threads i proceeded to lose my incompletes anyway.course then 5 mins after i stumble on the correct thread wit the very simple advice of copying and moving my .dat & .bak files,it was just one of those days............ !!!
anyhow todays a new one so i decided to uninstall all and start affresh.since i did tho my downloding speeds are crap and i'm testing them wit 4 stars,similar (cable) connection, ports fine and no firewall so looks like another day of it.....................
my question does it make a difference if both LW and bearshare are assigned the same port? I'm obviously not running them at the same time it's just that bearshare is flying and LWs not.

download speed is likely based on the parameters of the specific uploaders you are reaching. However, you can up your connection speed setting in the options and that might help a bit.

Note that there used to be a lot of confusion where BearShare showed bits per second and LimeWire showed bytes per second. In that case, you would have to multiple ours or divide theirs by 8 to be compatible.

Xcuse my interruption, but isp's advertise their speeds in bps (bits per second), & as gbildson pointed out, so does Bearshare. So divide your isp speeds by 8 minus overheads (between 13-20%) will give you your practical speeds in bytes/second. Also as gbildson pointed out, speeds depend upon your sources. Sources speeds can depend on how fast their upld connections are, how many slots they're sharing, etc. Some gnutella clients such as Shareaza (RAZA) are reknown for slow speed offerings due to their priorities & requirements for sharing on other networks. See the following link & follow all the off-shoot links to find hints & extra skills to help with your problem: To continue files downlding (click on link) Remember, browsing hosts can help continue downlds & can also assist in finding more at times. Of course manual researches of the topic will also do very well to assist in this area. (More on overhead loss HERE (click on link))
