Having trouble managing projects, duplicating, deleting, restoring..

Hey folks, I am having trouble with GSA SER since I started playing with it again in the last few weeks. 

I try to duplicate a project and it simply does nothing. 

When I delete the project it also does nothing. 

And when I am trying to load a template (.ser file) it says the project already exists and asks me to append, overwrite, or skip. It doesn’t matter which option I choose – it doesn’t do anything. 

I tried to rename the previous project using that template and it worked to rename it, but I still get the popup saying that the project already exists and asking to overwrite, append, skip, etc. 

It doesn’t seem to matter what I do, I can’t get around these problems. 

I try to modify a project and nothing happens. 

Am I doing something wrong or is there something funky going on with GSA? 

Import from other projects not working properly

@Sven I have four projects set up that I use to clean lists.

Each project is creating verified’s from one of four sold SER lists.

Then, I create a new project for whatever I want to link to.

In the past, when I import verified from other projects all the links would be moved to my new project to build on those targets.

Now SER is filtering or something and not all those links are being brought over.

For example, I have 2400 verified links from today’s cleaning.

But when I import from those projects into the new project, only 408 are copied over.

What’s going on that’s causing that?

Should I keep running my old projects as Active, Or just Verify

Greetings, friends.
Wondering if I should keep running some of my oldest set of GSA projects as active…and not just set to Verify only…
I mean those oldest projects where I just link to my money site directly with SER.
I don’t think I need to stop running old projects where SER creates links at T2 T3 .. .. just those pointing RIGHT at the  money site.
…and JUST those projects, of course, that I have newer replacements for with my own T1s, either on PBNs, a few legit listings, and various social media and other content platforms, and hopefully some authority links.
Is it ever OK to link directly to a money site with SER?
I have Asia Virtual Solutions active, blog comment, directory, forum, guestbook,Image COntent, Microblog, Pingback, Referrer, RSS, Social Bookmarks, Trackbacks, Web 2.0, Wiki running.
I also have a separate set of older projects that post to anything that will accept an article pointing at the money site. The articles are OK. Spun, hand-written, reviewed spintax for accuracy. On those I have Asia Virtual Solutions (projects to MS that use articles), articles, blog comments, pingbacks,referrers, social bookmarks, social networks, and wikis that use articles when posting.
This is how I chose to set up older projects. Are *either* the first set of projects, or the second that use articles,  appropriate as a T1 pointing at  a money site? And if not, what SHOULD I be using SER-generated backlinks? I’m *SURE* some will suggest SEREngines. I’ve haven’t used SEREngines since the last version, so if someone could explain I would very much appreciate it. Trying to do SEO right, finally. No more continuing poor practices that are just from a time I didn’t know better.
Should I *NOT* have been doing this? Is it considered “spam practices” by Google? At some point, I came to to understand that T1s should be stable and basically be legit. Is it OK?

alternating between projects & dont remove urls

alternating between projects
when i looked before im sure i saw a way to alternate between projects, i.e. turning projects
on & off for a set period, (so you have less projects running at once so it does not overburden the system)
but when i looked again i couldnt find it.

i thought it was under
main admin screen>options

but looked a few times & couldnt find it, does anyone know where this is ?

dont remove urls

under
project>options

where it says
“dont remove urls – check hint”
what does that mean exactly – does it mean it wont remove the urls when it reverifies them ?
i read the mouse-over text but was’nt sure what it meant.

& “remove after 1st verification try” is greyed out & cant be selected.
