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.

Default downloading java runtime environment

Sorry if you have heard this a thousand times, and i have read relative threads and have tried several suggestions, probably doing more harm than good, but i need help like you were talking to a five year old, as when it comes to pc`s i`am new to it all. I recently had a friend install a new HD for me with XP SP2 on it, i used to have 2000! went to limwire to retrieve my pro account and it downloaded without java and says go to java.com for latest download. Press download ( i have tried all manner of download options) and get XP SP2 warning click yellow bar to install active x control to continue download i do this and it continues to the run/save banner and then stops giving me a window installer banner saying this installation package could not be opened.Verify that the package exists and that you can open it or contact application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package. So far i have allowed active x controls past the firewall!!! Please can someone guide me through this so i can get limewire back, i beg you!!!

Also slightly off subject since going to xp from 2000 my connection speed is the same but page download speed even with all cookies in place is taking 3/4 times longer,it`s painful. I`am tight and still use 56k but now it is just too slow. anybody know why this could be?

Any help would seriously be appreciated.

If you're now using XP, Did you configure your firewall so it allows LW full access (advisable not to have 2 active firewalls b/c they can interfere with each other); Firewall configuration instructions (click on link)

IF you have Win XP SP2 then you might be interested in this http://www.lvllord.de/?url=tools (SP2 reduces simultaneous connections. This 3rd party installation will increase it again.)

Right downloaded the offline version and saved it to hard disc. Try to run the set up and get a banner reading : error reading setup initialization file.

You're the 2nd person is a week to get an installation error using that patch. I don't know why that should be. Unless it has something to do with installer scripts, etc. Common installation errors (click on link) You're sure you have SP2 right?

Perhaps download the "Offline" Java installer again. Might be an idea to temporarily turn off anti-virus & other protection software until you get it downlded & installed. There must be some reason you're getting this installation error. See NorbiesWorld (click on link) & ask him what he thinks the problem might be. It will mean you'll need to sign up for his forum. But he will no doubt sort this issue out!
