    In the settings tab where it says how many files people have to share to be able to download off me and not be a freeloader , what do you guys think i should make it ?

    I'd say all your MP3's and any programs you've got laying around..

    To Angel Of Destiny:

    John W. Lindh about halfway down this thread talks about how the 'anti-leech' slider in Limewire works:
    http://www.bearshare.net/showthread.php?t=29458

    It is very important to read this to understand how to configure this part of Limewire to work best!

    In response to Digital Nirvana's reply:

    Sharing ALL your MP3's and any programs you have is a very BAD idea if you have very many (read 100's) -- you'd basically be hit by a Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack from EVERYONE trying to download from you at once.

    All I've got to say is, P2P only remains because of sharing, without sharing, there wouldn't be any P2P.

    Right, and sharing more than enough to keep your upload bandwidth (however much you have) maxed out 24/7 is a worthy goal.

    But sharing 'everything' just means more and more of your upload bandwidth gets spent sending 'yes I have that file but I'm busy right now' messages instead of actually uploading something.

    And letting people LIST all those files you have shared just makes that problem 10x worse -- because the more you have the more it decreases your upload speeds when they do... and the more LIKELY people will be to do that!

    I'm on 56K, and I still share everything.

    If you have a LOT of files -- especially if you're sharing more than 100 popular MP3s or 5 or more tv shows -- you really need to reduce the amount you have shared. It's especially important to get out the rare and good stuff, even at the expense of other files which people have HUGE demand for.

    You really cannot upload faster than 100% 24/7 -- so sharing LOTS more than is neccessary to keep that level of demand on your connection is just reducing the amount you DO share.

    [img]http://home.comcast.net/~angelofdestiny/limewire.PNG' width='200' height='120' border='0' alt='click for full size view'>

    Edit: I see no point in letting people download off me if their not ganna share the files with other users because they hold up the download line for people who will actually help spread rare files

    No, I answered your original question.

    The BearShare message thread I pointed you to has one of the developers for Limewire, John W. Lindh, comment about that.

    He said:

    "That slider in LimeWire doesn't work. It hasn't worked for years actually. But thanks for elucidating why the LimeWire devs didn't remove it."
