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.

LimeWire does not send automated requeries anymore, so if you try to resume a file it goes into "Awaiting Sources"-mode. - You will have to search for the file manually and the download will eventually resume if LimeWire encounters another download location for this file.

Default Thanks trap_jaw4

Hi trap_jaw4,

Your reply is quite usable for me. But since we are in the forum, can we have some improvement to have auto-search for those incomplete download files to auto-start the downloading upon file availability???

If I use the Incomplete folder and click the Resume, still the same, it will start back to 0% even i have been gone through until 76% from my previous connection status.

Cheers and thanks!

LimeWire is a great program (staring with 3.0) and its getting better and better

Searches are fast, downloads are fast, and everything works great. You are really the best gnutella client out there!

Anyways, I would REALLY appreciate if you added auto-resume capabilities to LimeWire. Without this feature LimeWire looks primitive as every other program has it. Auto-resume is really important because I cannot finish a file in LimeWire if I leave LW with a file transfer...everything goes back to 0% when I try to resume..

Now please tell me, would any noobs know that they have to manually search for a file? It's really a hassal and I really think you should add Auto-Resume, its one of the great features of a program where it automatically searches for sources and downloads the file without your help

I would also like One more thing, can you show the Transfer Rates with decimals like 45.65KB/s instead of the rounded 46KB/s?
I'm used to that decimal one and so are many I know so If you can add these 2 requests to LW that would truly be great.

Thank you,

I hope the LW team is as good as the program!

Which version are you using? This shouldn't happen.

sam--I've seen this happen occasionally, but once the dl starts, the % jumps to the correct level.

Cool Reply for sberlin

Hi sberlin,

I am currently using 3.1.0 Pro (beta). Initially, I am using 3.0.2Pro. Due to the problem anticipation, i thought that the problem will be resolved so I intend to use the beta release, but the problem still the same.

Hope to have this feature.

Hi stief,

This never happens in early versions like what you have said.

hi dondon
This happened like I said. Some (not all) large incompletes resumed from the library pane showed no progress until a repeat search started them connecting. Then either the % or the colour on the progress bar jumped to the correct level.

It really gives me an impression that there is something missing if there is no continuous downloading.

It is also quite demoralizing if you start back to 0 % after 96% completion from the previous day.

My point is not all the LimeWire user will understand the explanation given. There must be an improvement when it comes to the application design.

As long as the file is available and the file belongs to the same groun no matter who is the owner in the network, the dopwnloading should proceed back to previous ended percentage.

Any reaction from the developer??

Here comes the ol' GUI v. Core (or whatever you call the actual program, w/o GUI) debate.

[Edit] I hate to start this up again. I certainly have issues with the Limewire GUI, and I have been and still am an advocate of many GUI things, such as an in-program help menu, and a bunch of other little things, however, at this point of LW's development, the developers (without passing judgement on them, for I know nothing of such things) are more concerned with developing and strengthening the methods of file transfer, reducing the bandwith load on ultrapeers and other issues.

FYI--my connection problems turned out to be a flaky modem I'd been using for years (LanCity), a horrible replacement (Com21) and now one that works SMC8002CM--aka DOCSIS.

So the advice now for people with persistent broadband connection problems: Rule out the modem!
