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.

Smile Resume download tip

Hello Everyone,

As a file is being downloaded, due to various causes (upload host crash, power failure) the last few KB downloaded will get corrupted. When this happens it assures this file will not be resumable. Gnucleus compares the last few bytes of your previously downloaded file with the first few bytes of the incoming file, making sure they match exactly, thus assuring it is the exact same file being downloaded and no corruption has occured during the disconnection. Obviously, if the last few KB of your file is corrupted it will not match the new uncorrupted incoming file and the transfer will be cancelled. If you have ever had the "Extended Info" window open and seen "Remote File Corrupted", chances are, it's your file that is corrupted and not the "remote file". This is not always the case however, it could be totally different file that fits your keywords, and happens to have the same byte size.

If you think you have one of these corrupted non-resumable files, I have found a freeware app. that allows you to "tear" the last few KB off the end of your file, leaving you with a file that is resumable again (but a bit smaller). I have tried it, it works. Make sure you tear off the end of your file and not tear a chunk out of the middle. Use Explorer on your file to right click=> properties and get the byte size of your file to determine where and how much to tear off.

Download "Japos Tear File" at

Swabby, would it be possible to have Gnucleus show us an exact byte size in searches, instead of just KB. Is this info not available until a download is actually started? With this info wouldn't it be possible for us to create 0 byte resumable files using "File Name (size in bytes,keywords ext).ext"?

These corrupted partials do happen, but rarely.

One method I have used to find these corrupted files is to check the file size. Win2k reports the file size and size on disk. If these two values match exactly, it most likely is a corrupted file. I use fat32, this may not work on NTFS.

I wish Gnucleus would flag, as suspicious, all files that have been resumed and cancelled due to corruption issues.

I have a large file which I think is corrupted under properties the file size in brackets matches exactly the size out side the brackets.

Also many for many hosts I get remote file corrupted.

Could you go through exactly how to fix this so that I can continue the download (I am on a slow connection and the file is a biggy)

I have tried using the file tearing utility before on other files with no luck.

Create 2 new directorys on your drive, "Corrupted" and "Scraps".
Cut and Paste or Drag and Drop your corrupted file into "Corrupted".
Copy the entire file name to the clipboard.
Open the Properties dialog and write down the file size ( in bytes).
Start the file tear utility
Click the button under "Source File", browse to "Corrupted", select your file, and click "Open"
Click the button under "Save Extraction...", browse to "Scraps", paste file name into "File name" field and click "Open".
Click the button under "Destination ...", browse to whatever directory your Gnucleus partials are in, paste file name into "File name" field and click "Open".
In the "Tear from..." field enter the file size, in bytes that you want to keep and try to resume from.
In the "Count" field enter the file size, in bytes that you want to remove.
The "tear from..." field and the "Count" field together, should equal the file size of your corrupted file.
Maybe someone else can tell you what the minimum amount you should remove would be. I always just trim back to an even number.
Example, corrupted file size- 123,456,789 bytes "Tear from"- 123400000 and "Count"- 56789
Click "Tear file!". When it finishes creating the new files you can delete the original corrupted file and the scrap file.

Questions? Just ask away. Good Luck.
