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.

Arrow how can I keep my library up to date?

Hi there, I don't know if this is a tip & trick or whether I should go straight to the new features suggestion forum.

Basically, I'm looking for a way to keep my library up-to-date with what I have on disk.

I am a subsidiary user on someone else's machine--i.e I had to install limewire into my account from theirs because they are the admin and I don't have such privileges. So is it possible this may be why my library isn't updating to take account of deleted files?

I'm not having any problems deleting the spammy auto-generated stuff, for which I'm generally using either Limewire or a media manager that's provided on the system here; some stuff I'm pretty sure I have deleted, though, is still showing in my library despite it not being actually on disk any more.

I'm mainly sharing - and searching for - images, ebooks and suchlike rather than music and movies so please keep advice generic. And it seems it is the limewire library rather than any 3rd party viewing software that's persisting in registering stuff I've deleted--i.e. the thumbnails no longer register in my "playlist".

The thing is that I find it easier to do stuff at source and do my housekeeping using Windows. I prefer to, e.g., go in and change extension names manually once I've downloaded to ensure I see stuff through the viewer rather than keep triggering an image editing program startup.

What I'm wondering is whether it's something to do with the ultrapeer side of things?

Or is this something that I'm going to have to reluctantly get myself some kind of on-line payment handling arrangements set up (which I've been putting off almost as long as I put off getting a cellphone) in order to get the PRO version to solve?

Or should I get looking at the books on Java I picked up with a vague notion that, as I found JavaScript easy enough once I got going, I'd probably get round to teaching myself coding properly and try and write a auto-comparison routine for the refresh function? I don't know how long it might take, certainly at least a couple of weeks although I suspect it might take me that long to find the right bit of code in the OSS download.

OK, I shall stop waffling now and hope someone can work out what the question is before I get too much nearer to the big four oh.

thanks in advance

luthier

Not sure whether you're developing your own version but ...
Saved Files folder will normally reflect the immediately downloaded material. Shared folder may not get updated immediately. Either restart LW or use the Refresh button to update this immediately. If you have share downlded content immediately enabled then that should help keep the Saved Files folder up to date. But again, you may need to resort to using the Refresh button in the LW LIbrary window. Changing extensions or the file that handles a file for opening ... in my experience doesn't take effect until next time you open LW (eg: changing default program to open a file-type.)

Ah, nope. I've tried that. They seem to be persisting as far as my library goes whatever--although they're deleted off disk. I'll give it another scrutinising but the files I was referring to were persisting in displaying in my library after refresh, after restarting limewire. It's currently about 04:20 here and my eyes are tired, so I'll go back through it all after a couple hours kip and check that we both do indeed mean what I think we mean! Thanks for the quick turnaround on the reply though. While you're at it, have you any idea why I seem to be listed as a junior member after I'm sure I altered my profile to reflect my status as a grownup?

Aha, so, classic case of {set user "luthier"="true" AND proc "RTFM"="false"} there then. I'm surprised it isn't more intuitive on classifiaction, along the lines of GNUbie, GNUabitnow, GNanswerU.

Yeah, back to the thread a moment: the library issue seems to have cleared itself up now so maybe it's linked to the caching on this machine? Otherwise, I did try what you suggested in the first instance so your post seems to confirm I'm going about it the right way and have reasonable expectations of what the s/w does. On the other hand, old entries were still showing a good week or ten days after I'd deleted them.

No I'm not developing my own version—I thought it was all open source, albeit any mod's should be sent to the LW bods for potential inclusion. But, being a GNUbie...

I'm guessing that you share what you downloaded. Try going to Tools>Options>Sharing and remove all folders there. Then close Limewire. Open it again and add your folders again.

Limewire should then rehash the files. Refresh your library after number of shared files is green.

Yeah, I get where you're coming at on that one. I'm adding this for the benefit of other users as I tend to read "-->" as indicating cascading submenus, but I take it take once I'm in the sharing dialogue box I should highlight the various folders one by one and click on [remove].

I don't know if the PRO version's different but that's what I get on my screen using the LW basic.

But, yeah, that makes total sense. Thanks.

Any files or folder you "don't" wish to share, right-click upon them (whilst in Library window) & you will see option. If a file is not being shared it will become red in colour. A folder not being shared will simply disappear from the library from memory. There's no difference in interface between basic & pro.

lol . Remove it is, not delete. I was in a hurry and mixed up the two.

Never ever delete anything from the Limewire Library useless you want it totally gone. It does not go to the recycle bin. It really gets deleted.

I'll just edit my previous post
