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


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.

Angry I paid for Limewire Pro!

I paid for Limewire Pro and as of this moment, can only access Limewire Basic. Also, I can easily download the music, but cannot burn it onto a CD or save it to another file off Limewire. If I cannot resolve this, I will cancel my subscription and find a company that is more user friendly.

Firstly did you get LimeWire Pro for the $18.88 with 6 months of free updates from LimeWire?

If so, you should have received an email with your download link to PRO.

Secondly, your inability to burn or transfer music and blame LimeWire is the same as me blaming you for the gas prices. If you want to burn music it takes more than a BIC lighter. If you have a CD Burner it came with come sort of rudimentary burning program.
If you are having computer problems search the INTERNET for articles on Computer file transfers. I believe the book,"windows for dummies" is very good too.

Your technical problems are solvable, i.e. burning CDs will require to have CD/DVD burning software, like Nero. LW does not come with a CD burner installed.

Moving downloaded files require you to use Windows Explorer, I sure you can use the Copy/Move & Paste facility.

However, this "subscription" you are threatening to cancel, well LW does not have a subscription, LW Basic is free and LW Pro cost only $18.88, and for that you get 6 months worth of updates/upgrades. But there is no subscription.

LW Basic and Pro are available from the following URL:

If you paid any other price or got LW from anywhere else then you have been scammed.

Now newbie, all you need to do is find out how to configure LW for your PC so that you can get the best out of it.

Only A Hobo is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

Athenrye. There has been a little problem recently with the pro upgrade page,which will be sorted in no time, furthermore there are also many hundreds of people getting scammed by unscrupulous websites. A few people on this forum try to answer questions like yours and forgive us if we do not always seem like perfect customer service people. We are not! ....... we just enjoy using Limewire. If you go to the search button you will find you can look up subscription. or any other word. and if you doo indeed have a problem it will be sorted soon.

This was a recent post on the subject.

There also forum rules which ask users not to cross post ...

Big sigh .... off to drink copious ammounts of coffee and let someone else answer the questions.
