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.

I'm not so sure there is a magic ratio. Just do what you can to help. For people like you who have disk space issues, just share what you have. If you want to remove something that is ok. Just share everything you do have.

Default To the whiner that started this thread

File sharing is optional with XoloX. Deal with it. That means no one has to share the files(even if that would kill the community).
If you dont like it, go use edonkey2000 or something else that requires sharing. Personally, I share all my files that are in my downloads directory. You will never download my large files because they are removed from that directory immediatly. This is for the good of both you and me. I usually only stay on long enough to download a few songs or a video, and at my capped 15k/s upload that simply isnt enough time to download them anyway. So, I'm just trying to save you the frustration of dealing with 25% of a file that no one else has. Like I said, file sharing is totally optional, if you would rather trade go use edonkey2000 or IRC(in fact theres a newish server thats just all about warez).
Note. I am sharing files, just nothing over 10mb.

That is all.
let the flames begin, heh

PS. I just started using this program about an hour ago and it has crash 3 times, and made winxp come up with the blue screen of death. Makes kazaa hella better...

Talking Leech, Freeloader

I began as what you would call a leech, freeloader, suckwad, etc.
Now I share 6.81 gigs of movies and 493 megs of songs. I don't know if I'm the norm or what but if you start blocking people with nothing to share, then they won't be able to get anything TO share. I guess I could find programs that allow me to see what they got to share and perhaps a way to block but I don't care to do so.
I feel fortunate to have access to a program like zolox and if I can help get files duplicated out there by sharing with all, well, that's what we all do here with zolox and if some person doesn't want to SHARE..well...I hope their machine bubbles with cyberfoam.
BUT until then I share with anyone that downloads for they may be as I

Man, I can not belive this post is even around but, it is and always will be a major issue. The truth is freloading is going to happen weather you like it or not ant there is no way to prevent it except not fileshare yourself. Many people do have to start out with nothing to share but most who get involved do return to others what they recived freely from someone. However there is a small number which does not fileshare nor will they ever realy know how others feel about it because they will not bother to read this forum. So ranting about it is all we can do.

Sadly, however, not everybody has a high bandwidth connection or the time to make file collecting a life hobby, therefore, they don't share too many files...
