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.

No, certificates are shared via a completely different code path and it will be difficult to display how many times a certificate has been uploaded anywhere in the UI. Also, just because it's been uploaded doesn't mean the remote side has imported it (the user has to click "Import" in order to store someone else's certificate).

The certificates folder is a little confusing when you have many. Since I certified all simultaneously there was no time/date indicator either to give a hint. I was not enthusiastic about opening up over 1k of certificates to find several dozen. So I started them from scratch.
Indeed, managing certificates manually is not easy and I don't really want it to be. This is a feature users should be careful with, hence the warnings in the UI and on the wiki. If you have deleted any certificates manually, you should restart MW because it caches them in memory.

I did. Also there'd been no uploads since adding the original certificates so no issue this time.

Any possibility of also adding a Find (or Locate) on Disk tool to library & uploads?

You've been doing a great job with this project.

No change. I stuck to 0.5.10 because I wanted to be sure the update system was working. I changed the check for updates to every 3 hrs a couple days ago.

I presume you tested the osx update working ok? If yes then it must be something at my end.

Not as thoroughly as I should have; more specifically I didn't test when the installation has existed from the 0.4 series like in your case. I saw someone successfully downloading the mac bundle from me and I presume it was you, so that part is working. I'll get busy trying to figure this out...

This might be considered somewhat petty. But just a personal choice.

Does MW record it's size and/or column widths in library/upload window?

My impression is these things are not recorded. Probably most people enjoy both the presets and the way the columns have a pulling factor on neighboring columns when moved. Personally I like to be abe to adjust them to custom widths. The upload window for example, the file name might be fairly long which means I need to stretch the column to see the entire filename. Remote pieces helps me to know how much of the file has been downloaded, but the full details are often obscured by default (probably for the large files.) It would be helpful if I could shift the column widths to a preferred width and remain that way between sessions. Likewise for the width of the gui. But obviously adding custom size options means recording the settings and potentially means slowing things down if custom settings exist.

Is there any setting(s) I should change or delete in order to fix the update issue? I had not used MuWire for about a week. After starting I downloaded an update, then I noticed several hours later I was downloading another. Then some days later noticed I had downloaded quite a few. Not sure how long I've been connected (does not appear to be a tool to show this) but I guess it is about 4 days. (I have uploaded 100% of the part update.)

So not only am I not receiving update notifications but the old issue of multliple copies of the update downloaded. That's not especially fair on those who are sharing both the bandwidth and their upload MB totals. Nobody else has come forward about this issue?

Edit: It might be my fault: I found an issue within my own setup. The download folder didn't appear to exist so I guess this might be what's caused the problem. I'll see. My downloads folder is not on the system drive but a sub-folder elsewhere. I don't like using the system drive for anything but the system. This approach might be safer in more ways than one, not only the health and efficiency of the drive.

Sorry I have been working on a web interface for MW and haven't really had a chance to investigate in detail the update issue. Nobody else has reported it so far.

This could be indeed what's causing the issue. I don't check for the existence or ability to write to the selected download and incomplete folders, I should.


Can you try manually downloading a file (a search for "muwire" will yield many results) and then seeing if the downloaded file appears in your shared files list? If it does, then the update should work.


Another thing to try is to disable automatic download of updates. With that disabled, you should get an update notification immediately when MW discovers about a new version exists. But let's see if fixing the download folder makes a difference first.


Thank you for the time you've put into this; you're helping me find many scenarios I haven't thought about.

The incomplete folder did exist.

Won't let me download it. I'm guessing due to the incompletes titled with .zip.part and .zip.pieces
