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.

Thumbs down

I'm using the 2.8.6 version of limewire (latest available when I d/l'd), under windoze 2K SP3, and it craps out in the middle of downloads, randomly, with "Could Not Move to Library", and the progress shows 100% (incorrectly)



Apparently LW cannot compare the file size of the incomplete file with the size of a complete version of the file, although, if you "Kill" the download, and go to the incomplete part of the Library, and click Resume, it restarts at the correct percentage, so why it jumps to 100% is beyond me?

"Could Not Move to Library"
should be changed to:
"Download Failed - Unknown ERROR!"

and should not set the progress bar to 100%

That is all I ask, I love the smooth user interface, and can live with the slowness and processor cycle consumption, for the sake of it being Java based...

but this whole "Could Not Move to Library" thing is bulls##t, the least they could do is make a note in the FAQ, because believe me, this will be one of the most FA Questions.

And for the record, my mate is using a Mac with OS x v10.2 and he has the same problem...

thanks for reading.

Not sure what windoze 2K SP3 is and unfortunately can't help as I don't have your problem. I agree Limewire is crap but we don't seem to have any choice. Have you changed your download directory? My computer behaved well after I had only one. If all fails, try feedback@limewire.com
Good luck.

Default IMPORTANT – Dissatisfied Limewire users

Everyone keeps whinging about bad connections, incomplete downloads etc etc. how many files do YOU have available to share? If you want everything to run well, get a good cpu, get broadband, leave your computer on all the time, share everything you can and... everything will be (well almost) fine. If you really can't find the music you want for free, try Ebay and buy the CD, they're cheap enough. If you still don't want to spend money, ***Warez violation***. BUT PLEASE if you are going to share files, please make sure they are not corrupt, they are decent quality, they are as described and they work!!!

From a HAPPY (well almost) User

Johnny-Amy - I'm also now a happy (almost) user. I was spoiled with Napster that had a massive international library. Limewire is really lame. However, it's better than nothing and there is improvement with 2.8.6. Unfortunately I have to turn the computer off sometimes when I'm running other programmes (not enough memory).

I am very positive that with over 20 albums someone, anyone, must have some songs able to be shared on this system. I want to know what service it is that I paid for, because right now I am getting next to nothing.

Hello!

I am using LimeWire 2.8.6 and Mac OS 9.1 and I am on a broadband connection(8Mbit/s VDSL) and for me LW works great.Lots of search results,fast downloads(most of the times).For me LW connects at the first attempt not 20.I just searched for the **** and it yielded 500 hits.But I have tryed LW on a standard 56K modem connection and it was a nightmare.Poor search results continued dropping of connections with other Ultrapeers(since the introduction of Gwebcache),Freezing of my computer everytime the connection to other hosts dropped.All of those problems is gone since I got broadband a week ago.So it seems like LimeWire is hostile to modem users these days!.

I am thoroughly disgusted right now.
Hello!

The Requery Sent message means that the situation is the following:

The host has recently turned off his/hers client and his/hers files are no longer available on the network for you to download.

The host you are trying to download from is a cheater and has set his/hers preferences to allow for 0 upload slots and no one will be able to download from that host.(this condition does not always result in the requery message sometimes you get into download status but continously stays at 0K)

You are both behind a Firewalled connection and on private subnetwork of IP addresses.

The host you are trying to download from are to busy and are using a bad client that do not report the busy status to you so that you get the busy signal or Waiting in Line signal.

The Requery Sent basically means that LimeWire will continue to search for the file in question but it will only do so for about once every 45 minutes.To speed this process up you should leave the file there in the download section and not kill it and then whenever you during a download process gets that message as soon as possible do a new manual search by using the exact search term as the file name in question and hopefully LW will see new hosts to download the same file and if that is the case it will download it from there(them) instead.

When you minimize the LW application to the System Tray it will take a minimum amount of resources but if you have downloads in progress they will continue and if people are uploading from you they will be allowed to do so untill they have finished.If you gets disconnected of the actuall network when it is in the System Tray I am not sure but I do know that if it is then LimeWire will imediatelly connect when you maximize it hence the green dot.

One thing that you should be aware of though is that even if you shut down LimeWire completely(File>Close) you will still be downloading files if you where in the progress of doing so and also people would still be uploading files from you if they where doing so before you shut it down untill they have finished downloading from you.If you want people to definetly not be able to download from you then you have to shut down your Internet connection or change this in LW preferences(Tools>Options>Shutdown) and here select the shut down immediatelly option then click apply then OK.

That works much better than this.
Hope to find a better solution for macs soon.
This system has slowed my mac down - it eats memory. After a few tries all the files that downloads - ends up "could not move to library" - so what's that point of being here. Or it stays in queue. I used to leave my computer on during the night or day when i go to work. When I get home.. if i am lucky - i have got one or two small small files of 20 k's or something... (that is lucky) Mostly... nothing in "complete-folder"
You can't see how many that are downloading the same files..
You can't see how and what exact they are downloading from you. I guess the numbers and searchings are thru the whole network.
You don't get the files anyway - if you do... that was probably a mistake :-)
It is very very slow
Some files are better found at the original place.. like updates and stuff - try the manufacturer - they do have a lot to share.

I hope that LimeWire gets better in the future... But now i guess i will uninstall this ****.
Hello!


Yes LW do eat memory but if you have plenty then that is not a problem.I would recommend the following System configuration in order for LimeWire to function well:

Mac OS 9.0 or later
Java applet reader MRJ 2.2.4(JRE1.1.8) or later and atleast 32MB of RAM assigned to it
320MB physical RAM(Virtual memory turned off)
Broadband connection 0.5Mbit/s or faster


The could not move to library issue sure is a strange one I have not encountered it ever and yeat I am using the latest version 2.8.6 for classical Mac OS.But most of those problems is supposed to have been solved in the next realese.

To see what other people are downloading from you do the following:

Under the Monitor tab uncheck the Enable check mark that lets you view incoming searches instead you should do the following:

Look after a couple of small blue arrow heads at the bottom left corner in the ribbed area of the incoming searches window and double click the arrow head that points upwards and a new window with all uploads and the ip numbers etc that are in progress will appear instead of the incoming search window.If you want to see all uploads that have been made from your computer even after they have finsished then you have to do the following:

Go to:

Tools>Options>Uploads>basic

and here deselect the Auto Clear completed Uploads then click Apply button then OK button and then shut down LimeWire and re launch it for the change to take effect and voila you can now see all uploads that have been made from your computer.

It is very slow?

No it is about as fast as other networks.How fast you will be able to download depends on how fast connection the person you are trying to download from have and also how busy it is.And also ofcourse the speed of your connection.

I just had to stop a minute to say a HUGE THANKS!! to Joakim Agren. This is among the first posters I have encountered who has given such intelligent advice in so clear and comprehensive a manner. Whoever is in charge of hiring moderators could do the entire LimeWire community a huge service by saying, "Come on board" to Joakim Agren.

It's a real pleasure to read advice presented so competently. It's a true irony that we need to depend on Sweden to give us our best dose of plain english to be heard on this board in a long time.
