BTW here is what I see.

Ignore the ad at the top saying "Your system may not support this file."

What does the "Trackers" tab show?

That's the important tab. It will probably say something like "no connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it" = tracker down (which we know about).

I notice that it shows nothing downloaded for that one. That's why I asked if they had started downloading and then went off or if they hadn't downloaded anything.
The tracker is still down you know so that's really the likely cause. May just have to wait for the new server to be set up.

Yes they had started downloading when it stopped. In fact they were like 95% done.

Sorry, I should have been clearer.  eyore and I were referring to the "Trackers" tab in your ĀµTorrent client.  I've attached your screen grab of your ĀµTorrent client with the Trackers tab highlighted inside a green box.

But why does papamouses screen say zero B completed? Surely it should still show 95%?

BTW, my trackers tab doesn't appear to have that extra information either, just the same details shown in papamouse's - three standard trackers and the mousebits tracker. Is yours the premium version pixelated?

It's OK - I got mixed up as when you reply it changes the order of posts to most recent first - Doh.

Note that papamouse's screen shows nothing downloaded so, the original active downloading file has been deleted/overwritten.

I think re-downloading the torrent file and clicking it cancels the previous download and it starts from scratch. Whether it's still there and just been removed from the downloads I'm not sure.

I know I accidentally re-downloaded a file I was already downloading and I had to do it all over again. I think the part file gets renamed but remains in the uTorrent file where the temp files are kept (it's while ago now). I couldn't work out how to get it back into the active downloads. It's fine reloading a completed file but not a partial file it seems.
I think that's what's happened here.
It's a case of "start again" when the tracker comes back up.

If I am in the middle of a download and I shut down Utorrent. when I start back it runs "checking" and finds what it has already done and then picks up from there.  The 95% is still siting on my computer in the same place it was.

This has never happened before form this site or any other that I get torrents from.

As mentioned, the tracker is down so nobody will be able to download anything until it's back up and running.
Hopefully it's connected  with the change of server Marni mentions on the index page under "news".
I'm sure they will let us know if anything goes badly wrong.

Ah, thanks for the clarification eyore. I was having trouble connecting to a torrent and hadn't checked in here first.

In that case papamouse, it is the tracker being down that has caused your problem and it should resume downloading when it's back up.
I think we were looking for some problem at your end rather than the obvious.
Tracker is still down.

Any guess when it will be back up?
