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. 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.

Go to Library window, at bottom of window you will see Incomplete folder, click it open. Then select all (hold down shift key), then press Resume button. This will force them back into the download window. They will all show zero percentage downloaded until they actually start downloading again upon which time their previous download % will show.

It gives the impression your LW is not shutting down properly after closing it at end of a session. Make sure LW is set to close immediately in settings. Wait a few mins at least before shutting down computer.

If you have a large number of incomplete files, then it would be well worth doing this: Tip: Purge the Downloads Queue! (click on blue link). It will help get rid of the possibility of any fakes you accidentally downloaded which can cause LW havoc.

Posts were Merged because they were double-posts. I had already answered one of them.

Did you click on the incomplete folder in the Library window? If there's an arrow there you may need to click on it.
Did you select the incomplete folder & press Explore (that will open the folder up, else the parent directory folder) ?

Did you update your LW & find some files missing? It might be because LW now stores them in a different location; http://www.gnutellaforums.com/window...downloads.html

If your incomplete files are older than a certain age then LW may ignore them (removed them from its download history records), see downloads NEVER progress!!!!!

I DID NOT UPDATE.
MY PROB IS WHEN I LOADED LIMEWIRE IT DIDNT LOAD PREVIOUS LIST IT'S EMPTY ITS MAKING A NEW LIST IN THE SAME FOLDER (IT HAD OVERWRITTEN downloads.dat & downloads.bak). NOW I NEED TO RESUME DOWNLOADING FILES WHICH WERE IN THE PREVIOUS LIST. IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN DO IT.

If you have a copy of the old Downloads.dat & .bak files, replace the newer ones in the incomplete folder. This must be done whilst LW is closed.

I have no idea why you are not seeing incompletes in the incomplete folder though in the LW Library window. Whether they are being utilised or not by LW you should still be able to see them. Only thing I could think of is either your download location changed, else if either permissions changed for that folder that disallow you access to utilise the files in it.
