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.

Angry Resume download doesn't work properly!

I'm running Limewire 2.2.4 on Mac OS 9.2.2

The resume function is absolutely essential on modem dialup connections as the chances are the line will go down during any reasonable-sized download. In Limewire, it doesn't work properly.

Firstly, the Connect function in the file menu doesn't seem to work - you have to do it manually by adding (or other similar addresses) in the connection window.

Secondly, the Force Resume button doesn't seem to do anything

Thirdly, Limewire almost never manages to recognise incomplete files and invariably begins to write a new copy - which if the incomplete file is 28Mb of a 30Mb file on a modem dialup connection makes you want to throw the computer out of the window. I've tried trashing the new file and giving the previous version the same filename, but that doesn't work.

Limeware should store the IP addresses (from the search) of all the servers that had the partially downloaded files in the Incomplete folder.

There should be a resume button in the Library window which you can click on to automatically reconnect and resume an incomplete download by cycling through the stored list of IP addresses. There should also be an option to automatically search for the file if the servers are no longer available.

You should be able to double click on an incomplete file and Limeware should automatically open and resume downloading the file.

"You should be able to double click on an incomplete file and Limeware should automatically open and resume downloading the file."

YES! Please!

Better yet, have a setting where Limewire can search for incomplete files (during periods of inactivity?) and grab the ends of the files as it finds them.

But at least, if you double click on a file in the Incomplete folder, it should try to find the rest of it. Playing it at that point makes no sense.

Pretty much the same thing happened to me...

I was downloading a 30MB file "with dialup", and at 29MB I was frozen by a damn popup from a website I was at.

Oddly enough, my files seem to resume downloading. The CATCH!, is that if a system error occurs, then it resets the download to 0%, leaving the incomplete download sitting there in the folder.

What the hell??

This as far as I know is the biggest problem Limewire has. I'm afraid to download big files because of the possibility of a freeze or error, and the fact that my resume doesn't always work.

I hope they make some add-on to the program that we can download that fixes this problem.

I am using 2.3 - I have tons of 100 - 500 mg files in the incomplete folder with no apparrant way to resume download? They are not auto-resuming as is clearly states in the user guide.

Is something else required of me? I would pay the $8.50 and go PRO if there was some indication that a full featured product could be offered here.

However, it seems that as poor as other gnutella client interfaces are - at least many of them have much better RESUME features.

Somebody is going to figure this ALL out soon, put it all together and CONTROL this market.

Angry Are incomplete worth saving

I am in the same position with the large file sizes & I am using the pro version, at one point I managed to get up to 6GB in the incomplete folder.

I am also finding problems with deleting some of the files, even after completing a full reboot & completing the deletions from the dos prompt I still have 0 byte files which the system tells me are in use.

I have now set file retention to 1 day to stop my machine filling with files that can not be used this has helped with the symptoms of the problem but it would be nice to fix the problem itself.
