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.

Unhappy Stuck at 90% for 3 weeks! Why doesn't it finish!?!

Is there some bug is gnucleus? I have 3 movie files which reached upto 95% done - and then stopped.

Gnucleus got upto 60 different sources for one file, but after 3 weeks, it has not finished the file. And even with 60 sources, the file did not increase a single byte!

Sometimes, it gets "stuck" and gives a message "Retrying host 1 of 60" and after 5 minutes, it's still says "Retrying 1 of 50" without advancing to 2 of 50, 3 of 50, etc.

Is this some bug? What is the matter?

I want to transfer the partial files to download in shareaza. How do I do that? Edit the .nfo in gnucleus to a .dat for shareaza?

Anyone done this before? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Having used Morpheus and recently converted to Gnucleus (recommended), I have noticed the same thing. I don't think this is a Gnucleus bug. There are several other reasons for this:

1. People use their download directory as Share directory... This is good if you have lotsa space and doesn't have to delete stuff, but with movies people tend to burn it to CD-R as soon as possible (or so I believe...) So most of your sources may be downloaded files that are now erased. Lesson to learn: Don't share files you're going to burn and delete.

2. The problem about never counting up the retries is more puzzling... I have seen it myself, and believe this may be a bug: The system tries to connect to the different sources, but times out before it is through the list. Then, when the system tries to connect again, it starts from the beginning... Bug? I don't know.

So what can you do, especially about the 90% download that stopped? Just wait! Some day, it will be online again, and you'll get your last 10%.
The main problem about movies is that they are so long that most people sharing them out may do a reboot before it completes. To make it even more complicated, dynamic IPs may confuse the system even more. I usually do a Re-Search on seemingly dead files, but even that only rarely gives results. This is the nature of downloading from a changing network. Sometimes you don't get what you want... Be happy about what you DO get. And btw: Shareaza is also using the gnutella network, so chances of finding your last 10% aren't any better there...

Bug? Maybe. But it might be a screen artifact. When I tick "pending" off and then on again, the numbers change... sometimes. Most of the time, it remains the same.

Another issue - "Undetermined at 0.00kb" message.

I've noticed that during startup, some files get connected immediately, but they give a "Undetermined at 0.00kb" message. The whole system freezes as gnucleus tries to get the download started. In about 10 seconds, the system returns to normal. However, the download does NOT start. I've seen this same behaviour for the last 8-9 times I started up gnucleus.

The system freeze is definitely a bug.

But what about the file not resuming? Is that a bug? Or has something corrupted the file so that resuming is destroyed? Or is the source a RIAA fake?

I've done re-search many times too. And like you say, it does not seem to make any difference to the download. I have a fixed IP, so I can vouch for my side of the equation.

Another thing I do is to re-start gnucleus occasionally, if there are no uploads or downloads going on. If I understand correctly, re-starts get me connected to different parts of the network, which may have the content I want.

Re: shareaza. I know it's on the same network. I'm hoping that shareaza does not suffer from the bug? of not resuming after 90%.

Another, more selective way of doing this may be to disconnect your worst nodes.

Check your connected nodes on Statistics, especially the Distribution tab. When nothing happens for a while, I browse through my list of connected nodes and removes those with few friends and small libraries. When new nodes have popped up, I try a Re-Search again.

BUT: Usually I just wait. I have seen files starting to download again after a week or two, and I don't expect 3 weeks is a limit either. The problem is when you have 10 files at 80-95%... The partial files start to take up so much space on your hard drive that when another (new) file download kicks in, your HD may be full...
