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.

Confused Torrent file segments not available

Using Limewire 5.5.8 with much success. However, last two movie downloads have stalled. First one at 99% with only 2MB to go. Checking file info, one segment is shown in red as unavailable. I am connected to usually 2 but sometimes 3 P2P users. The other shows connected to 2 P2P users but will never start. When checking file info, ALL segments are shown in red. I do not know what to do...if anything.

Sounds like a torrent file right? Patience is a virtue. Unlike Gnutella network where more sources (people with same file) can be searched for, with torrent files you need to wait for someone to have those segments & have available upload slots & bandwidth for you. If someone shows as having it but you are not getting them then patience is best until a fellow downloader downloads those segments or the one who has them opens up an upload slot for you.

Do you mean peers you are connected to via the under Tools menu -> Advanced, or do you mean sources showing as connected to in Download window? The advanced window shows how many peers you are connected to the Gnutella network, if less than 3 then suggests you are struggling with connection for some reason.

It is a torrent, correct! Under Tools>Advanced shows 3 ultrapeers. The Download window shows XXXMB of YYYMB (0 KB/s) from 3 P2P Users. My questions was around the fact that when I "View File Info" and click on "Pieces" the remaining piece is marked in red (unavailable). Does this mean that none of the three users has this piece?

It does tend to suggest this yes. I must confess I don't personally use LW for torrents but is same principle to other torrent programs.

Need to be careful about downloading old torrents. Often not many with the entire file are still seeding. Likewise I have one torrent stuck at 32% for 4 months.
Another torrent which gradually creeped up to 82% over same period with the other 60+ people waiting for the person with the 100% of file to come back online (seems to come online once a week for an hour or two .. sighs.) So all others are stuck at 82% except for the new ones that show up.

So either patience .. else delete it & find a newer torrent of same thing (or similar.)

(I retitled the thread to show this topic is about torrents.)

Thanks so much for the info. I am pretty new to torrents. What torrent software do you use? So, what you are suggesting is that none of the three peers has this single segment??? The download was progressing just fine and then came to a sudden, abrupt halt at this point with only 2.0 out of 845 MB remaining.

Yes sounds like none of remaining ones have the remaining segment & like you are awaiting for someone with the last part to come online.

I use two torrent programs. Main one is Vuse (previously called Azureus) & this year use Transmission (Mac OSX only) for one specific private torrent site. For windows either Vuse or the much simpler uTorrent are good ones. Vuse has more advanced features, plus can be used in either Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced levels as set in preferences for more options.
