Yes would almost give it a try if they had more hash power but as it is hard enough to get a block in edge wise on the largest pool now the god damn bot nets are back in full force again.

Hmm not sure what you mean.. We have been getting blocks just fine.. sure we have run of bad blocks just like anyone else.. but it all comes around with PPLNS.. specially when the short blocks come.. then its pay day..  :)

Time to make this fun :) Mining LTC cost me nothing so its time to make things fun for everyone.

Starting from block 21,458.. every 25th block found on the pool will get a 50 LTC bonus to the block finder. The block finder gets their normal payout +50 ltc.. so there is no confusion I will send the money direct from my personal account for all Bonus Finds. (Make sure you have a LTC address on file)

The only way to win that +50 ltc bonus is by playing.. so grab your cpu.. and point a few shares to Elitist Jerks.. you cant win unless you play!

Post by: 3phase on November 07, 2011, 06:01:19 PM
As a fellow elitist jerk, I must note that your incentive is rather flawed. A reasonable jerk (elitist, I might add) would join the pool after 48 blocks have been found and leave just after. Maybe you notice such a thing in your hash rate fluctuation.

A small bonus to the block finder (as pool-x does) or a shared bonus to all pool workers (like ozco does) is much more attractive as in both cases, a medium KHash will certainly get more litecoins per day.

Just a thought, and also I need to mention that I left the pool because my stales percentage was way higher than other pools (1.5% compared to 0.5-0.6%).

That is said with all the respect that goes for the work you have put already into it.

Good luck!

Post by: wknight on November 07, 2011, 09:56:39 PM
3phase.. thanks for giving me some feedback I appreciate it a lot!

I do know about the little flaw in the block bonus.. realized that about 30 mins after i started the first one.. However i felt if someone was going to have that kind of time to watch the pool or even create a script go for it.. I will say this.. the block bonus is not going to be around forever.. in fact we have 250 ltc put towards this. In fact we where going to end it but mhecker through some more in the "kitty" to keep it going since its fun in the irc channel :)

The stales has me a bit worried and I have been making changes.. plus we did run some performance testing on the server to see how far it could be slammed before we needed to upgrade. I am sure many of your stales came because of it.. 499 ec2 boxes was a bit overkill.

Feedback is how we grow.. and again I appreciate you taking the time to post up!

Besides its mostly me talking to myself it seems :)

Post by: wknight on November 08, 2011, 02:47:11 AM
Due to a time change it seemed a few blocks where not paid out. This has been updated and corrected. All blocks found have been paid out 100% now. We believe in total honesty and why I double checked the entire ledger. No one brought this up to us as an issue but this was us double checking payments. One thing I have learned mining myself. You never mess with someones money.

Thanks again for being part of Elitist Jerks.

Thanks for creating this pool. It has been nice to put my i7 CPU to work on something.
Have you considered changing the name and logo. My family finds it offensive (as do I) and I have to wait 'till they all go to bed before I log in.
The sentiment behind the logo and name resonates with me a lot, but still offensive.

Please consider.

Thanks.

allten,

First welcome to the pool glad you are enjoying it. I wont be changing the name as one day someone called me an Elitist Jerk and it made me laugh so much. It was also shocking.. hehehe

It also fits some of us well. 4 of us are over 100 khash .. with two being 500 khash.. this is what we call Elitist. These two people are not doing it by running a botnet either :).

Many of us are doing this for fun.. the name just makes it funny.. The finger is just the icing on the cake :)

There is other pools out there. Pool-X is a Pirate theme and OZCO.in is a Kangaroo. Both good pools and not offensive. They might also be a better fit if the name and logo bothers you that much.

Yes I know I sound like a jerk.. but we do this for fun.. there is no money to be made running a pool.. We are Elitist Jerks.. :)

Post by: wknight on November 20, 2011, 05:08:22 PM
As some may our may not know a few days ago we dealt with the transaction spam which caused our server to slow down. This caused invalids for many of the pools including ours. I went through the entire ledger to be sure any blocks that where successful still got paid out. This has been done today so you might find a little extra ltc in your wallet all at once.

This pool will always strive itself to being the most honest pool there can be. We dont leave it up to scripts to be 100% at all times and we double check the books to make sure everyone is paid their correct amounts and no payments are missed. This is the number 1 reason Elitist Jerks was started..

We thank everyone for being part of Elitist Jerks.

Post by: wknight on November 21, 2011, 03:29:20 PM
Since there is still a bit of transaction spam going on we have had very slow confirmations on some of our blocks. Up to a day now. Rest assured your shares will be paid out.

Yeah, I'm always sad when a project shuts down, and this is no exception.
I hope a new (and possibly "jerkish" :)) pool will open to fill up the gap. Even if interest in the coin appears to have faded a little bit lately, Litecoin is still the best alt currency out there. 8)

Well I had a good phone call with a friend of mine that has some possible hosting opportunities for us. We will be changing hosts and during this time the pool will stay up. I know many have already found new pools to mine at. But many decided to stick around as long as possible. Just giving an update.

Please upgrade your minerd

It has been shown in many cases double the speed!

btc_artist, it has been up. When we change over to the new server I will have an announcement of downtime. But I am only expecting a very short downtime. 2 hours the most. Mostly for DNS to update.


Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS - Litecoin -
Post by: btc_artist on December 27, 2011, 09:36:23 PM
In anticipation for changing DNS entries, you can lower to TTL to about a half hour ahead of time so that all clients will switch quickly when you make the change.  After the change you can increase the TTL again.


Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS - Litecoin -
Post by: wknight on December 29, 2011, 12:23:16 AM
I have moved the server to the new Link. New ip address is in the DNS and being propagated.  New IP address is 75.149.194.154.

In testing we have found that we have considerable less stales on the new link. Enjoy

Post by: wknight on January 03, 2012, 02:17:43 PM
We are going to continue to pay for any and all orphans the pool may acquire. We feel this will keep us in line with other Litecoin pools.


Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS We Pay for Orphans - Litecoin -
Post by: wknight on January 06, 2012, 03:02:53 PM
Just a little update on whats new at Elitist Jerks...


Ecoinpool is being tested as our new worker software. Things have been going VERY well thanks to Mega_p2k and his Ecoinpool software. We have found that ecoinpool dramatically reduces stales that pushpoold tends to have with new blocks. Ecoinpool also provides extra added features like live monitoring and such.

If you would like to test Ecoinpool yourself. Point your miners to port 8339. If you would like to know more about the live monitoring feature. Stop by our IRC channel and we will be happy to show you how. #Elitist on Freenode

Remember Ecoinpool is in testing phase. There can be outages/updates on the fly. Make sure your miners are set to -r 1 to continue connecting to the server so they do not time out.

Finally.. we are still paying for any orphan blocks that might come across the pool. Orphans are our problems, not yours.. boy i sound like the government. :)



Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS We Pay for Orphans - Litecoin -
Post by: wknight on January 07, 2012, 02:43:59 AM
Welcome back to many miners.. thanks for testing out port 8339. We have noticed next to nothing with stales. Keep up the good work and let the blocks keep flowing.


Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS We Pay for Orphans - Litecoin -
Post by: wknight on January 07, 2012, 02:19:51 PM
So we have decided with all the new miners and extra hash's we have been getting. We are going to be upgrading to a new server next week.

Thanks to all for being part of Elitist Jerks


Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS We Pay for Orphans - Litecoin -
Post by: wknight on January 07, 2012, 04:24:19 PM
Due to very High cpu we had to take down the server for diagnostic.. many people where seeing 2 to 3 times the payouts as normal.. which is good for you.. but bad for us :)



Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS We Pay for Orphans - Litecoin -
Post by: wknight on January 07, 2012, 04:47:32 PM
seems are problem is with pushpoold.. if you would like to continue mining.. please use port 8339


Title: Re: [ANN] Elitist Jerks 0% Fee PPLNS We Pay for Orphans - Litecoin -
Post by: wknight on January 07, 2012, 05:08:35 PM
OK guys.. everything is back up and running.. sorry for the short downtime.. we know the error and it has been resolved.

Just a reminder.. right now its best if you mine on port 8339 as stales are VERY low

Todays Update:

Ecoinpool is being tested VERY well. We appreciate everyone jumping on and pushing it to the max. Megap2k has found a few things he needs to optimize for future enhancement.

We are going to be adding a mining server tomorrow afternoon. as soon as the server is up and running I will post and let everyone know where to connect. This way we can continue to get even more data.

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Post by: 3phase on January 09, 2012, 05:36:46 AM
Hi, wknight. Some feedback:

After 12 hours of hashing, I got close to 0.5% stales which is much better indeed than my previous experience (closer to 1.5%). This is on par with what I get in other pools.

I tried with -s 30 flag, and that's what I usually do as I don't want to overload a server with getwork requests. I suppose if I reduce that, I will get less stales.

In any case, I have to note that the move to the Erlang-based Ecoinpool seems to have improved things greatly, and I have to give congratulations for trying innovative pool software.

Despite the recently expressed views on the forum, that Alt coins don't provide innovation (by themselves maybe), it goes to show that having more opportunities to experiment (as in having various alt coins alive) creates a fertile ground for innovation. I would find it hard to think how a Bitcoin pool as an example would risk trying a completely new pool back-end, with the danger of crashing down and losing its miners.

Regards, and best of luck with your endeavour.

3phase.. thanks for all the testing. Megap2k has found a few things that need to be addressed with ecoinpool because of this testing. He has had a lot of changes in his code in the last week.

Litecoin might not be worth a lot of money.. but its been a great way to test for new pool software thats for sure.

We have moved to Pay Per Share.

The only way to move to a honest payout system is by removing Proportional all together. No matter how you try to stop hopping people will work around it.

Since there is so many PPLNS pools. We decided to go with PPS at 3% Fee's.

Yeah i noticed when i got up this morning no blocks reported. I knew either I had some REALLY bad luck or I forgot to do something :) . After about 3 minutes i remembered. I just got done writing a script to check every hour if the cron is running and if not to email me. This way I dont ever forget again.

Well welcome. PPS is great if your looking for steady pay. No variance. The Pool takes all the risk.

Running this pool has given me a chance to work with PHP and mysql a bit deeper. Not only that learning Python for our IRC bot. I do this for fun. The fee's just cover the unlucky rounds. Since we had a bit of luck I figure i would run with the buffer and see how things go. If it continues we can always lower the fee's

Post by: wknight on June 30, 2013, 03:59:37 PM
Huge changes guys and wanted to post it up as it might effect just a few people still using getwork.

Getwork has some flaws where people love to spam LP causing all system resources to be used. Last night someone decided to do such a task which made work very slow or unresponsive. Port 9332 was then closed and all issues where resolved.

Where does this leave getwork. Well its time to upgrade your miners, or if this is not possible, setup your own getwork proxy.

cgminer already has stratum support and works very well. there is no reason not to use stratum.

Make sure your mining URL is stratum+tcp://pool.ejpool.info:9333 . Yes cgminer does have auto detecting of stratum but its good practice to use the correct protocol.

Need help for getwork proxy?

If you have more than one miner (especially CPU miners) running within a local network, it is best to use the Stratum proxy for Litecoin mining. This proxy allows you to achieve a lower rate of stale shares while reducing your bandwidth usage. The Python source is available here, and a binary for Windows here. You start the proxy on one of your machines as follows:

mining_proxy -nm -pa scrypt -o us.litecoinpool.org -p 9333

Then you connect your miners to that machine on port 8332 with the usual pool worker username and password.

Need to update your cpuminer?

Thanks to Pooler on taking the time to upgrade cpuminer to use stratum. This can be downloaded at the following location.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpuminer/files/

To sum things up port 9332 is now port forwarded to 9333. This way for anyone running stratum they will be able to connect with no problems and you may have only noticed a brief outage.

Elitist Jerks is running the latest code for all pooled mining. Getwork is out dated protocol and anyone still mining with it needs to upgrade.

If you have any issues upgrading or using stratum please let me know

Decided to check out the pool. Pretty cool. My only complaint is of course the 3% fee is rather steep.

Well welcome to the pool and thanks for giving it a try.

For a little perspective on why our fee's are at 3%

First here is an example on other PPS pools:

Litecoinpool.org = 4% fee's (started at 5%)
Ltcmine.ru = 3.3% fee (started at 2%) recent change

These two pools have been around for at least a year. Litecoinpool being the longest.

They both adjusted their fee's due to risk, orphans, etc. Basically they adjusted their pool fee's to match cost.

PPS is Pay Per Share. The pool takes all the risk. Long rounds, orphans, etc. You get paid for each share you submit no matter what. The value of each share is the same across the difficulty length.

Now quickly compare to a PPLNS pool that is 2% fee. This fee goes straight to the pool owner. Your share value will change throughout the difficulty period. Long rounds will make your share value a lot less then what your making on a PPS pool. Course short rounds will be increased in value. But this is what we call variance. PPS takes all the variance risk and you get paid one given price.

If you look at Bitcoin PPS pools which is the most favored btw. The lowest PPS pool is 3%. BTCGuild just raised theirs to 7% was at 5%. Ozcoin got rid of it. mtred at 0% closed its doors because variance drained their buffer. EclipseMC is 5%. This is why fee's for PPS makes sense and why we are at 3%

Hope this makes a little bit more sense. I have done a couple weeks at 0% fee's. Basically given back to the miners some of the good luck the pool has had.

If you have a chance take a look at this post. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=104664.0 It gives you risk/reward and why people use it. Bitcoin Pool fee's. Etc.

Here is about how each payout works

Decided to check out the pool. Pretty cool. My only complaint is of course the 3% fee is rather steep.

Well welcome to the pool and thanks for giving it a try.

For a little perspective on why our fee's are at 3%

First here is an example on other PPS pools:

Litecoinpool.org = 4% fee's (started at 5%)
Ltcmine.ru = 3.3% fee (started at 2%) recent change

These two pools have been around for at least a year. Litecoinpool being the longest.

They both adjusted their fee's due to risk, orphans, etc. Basically they adjusted their pool fee's to match cost.

PPS is Pay Per Share. The pool takes all the risk. Long rounds, orphans, etc. You get paid for each share you submit no matter what. The value of each share is the same across the difficulty length.

Now quickly compare to a PPLNS pool that is 2% fee. This fee goes straight to the pool owner. Your share value will change throughout the difficulty period. Long rounds will make your share value a lot less then what your making on a PPS pool. Course short rounds will be increased in value. But this is what we call variance. PPS takes all the variance risk and you get paid one given price.

If you look at Bitcoin PPS pools which is the most favored btw. The lowest PPS pool is 3%. BTCGuild just raised theirs to 7% was at 5%. Ozcoin got rid of it. mtred at 0% closed its doors because variance drained their buffer. EclipseMC is 5%. This is why fee's for PPS makes sense and why we are at 3%

Hope this makes a little bit more sense. I have done a couple weeks at 0% fee's. Basically given back to the miners some of the good luck the pool has had.

Lots of new miners have come over due to recent events of a pool that had funds stolen from them. A few things to make sure I am up front about funds.

Hot wallet and cold storage.

Our hot wallet is monitored constantly. I make sure their is enough funds to cover withdraws. However, I also protect against accidents and/or hacks. I also cover account founds like an insurance policy. I have enough reserves as I am one of the original adapters of Litecoin.

I transfer funds in and out to make sure we run lean however we can cover withdraws as they are needed (auto and such).

My suggestion is to have Auto payout setup. Set it to 5 ltc and let the system pay you out over time.

I will not leave thousands of Litecoins in our Hot wallet. This has way to much risk. So rest easy that you will be paid.

Lots of new miners. Almost to the 200 MH/s goal. Welcome to many of you.

Just a few things to do when you login.

Set your Litecoin address.
Set your auto pay. This way your coins are sent directly to you and not sitting on the pool.

Many hashers between 1,000 mh/s to 5,000 mh/s set auto pay to 5 LTC
5,000-10,000 set auto pay to 10 LTC
10,000-20,000+ set auto pay to 20 LTC

This way you done get a ton of payments but also dont leave a bunch of LTC on the pool. Remember this is your money.

I always have the full amount to cover all withdraws. I have scripts that continue to monitor the Hot Wallet. Get paid when you want it.

Every once in a while I take a minute to see all the new people joining the pool. Lots of new names.

Welcome to many new miners. I am assuming something happened for you to leave the current pool your at and or are new to litecoin mining.

We have taken a lot of pride in running a up to day server. Up time date software and continue to work with the developer of MMCFE-NG.

Security features are always a top priority. Namely getting you paid in case something happens. This pool is fully backed by my own personal wallet. I have scripts in place to give me full balance details. We always have enough to cover withdraws. When you mine on Elitist Jerks, you will be paid.

New members, it is very simple getting started on our pool.

1.) Register with us. Make sure sure you use a valid email as its critical for password resets.

2).Login to our server with your username and password

3).Once logged in. Hover over my account and select my workers.

4). Create a worker. For instance WKNiGHT.1 and any password. Passwords can be open. It doesnt matter. This is not your account password. I just use 1234 or x.

Thats all you need to do on the pool side to start mining

Use your miner software to connect. minerd -o stratum+tcp://pool.ejpool.info:9333 -u WKNiGHT.1 -p x

its simple as that getting started with us.

Please if you have any questions just post here. I will be more then happy to help you get started

HELLO. Sorry for my English (not native language).

I must say it's very nice and stable pool. Switched here just before well known problems with ltcmine.
It has low reject rate even with high Intensity (I>=19 in cgminer). For example, A:52437|R:340 with 1 giga 7950 641 KHash/s (I=19) in 4 full days.
I have one question. Where can I see only withdrawals history? I see 'Transactions' page but there is no any filter.
Also It would be nice to see full amount of ltc you pay me for all time.
Thanks.

Your english is very well. No worries there.

Thanks for sharing your great results with us. Our provider has proven to be one of the better hosts and have yet to have a problem with them.

http://www.ejpool.info/index.php?page=account&action=transactions

I will see if we can add a button to filter withdrawals. You are right.. right now you have to scroll through all of the payouts and it can be a pain. We will get something added for you.

you have a very good server :)
after ltcmine nearly gone with pps and litepool pretty unstable (i had hours of connectivity problems) you have the best pps server out there with the lowest fees =)
good job. i also like your 64 diff because it is a pretty good balance between speed and connectivity. ltcmine for instance had nearly 600 diff for 7950 cards which was a bit too high for me. but i think it was necessary with almost the 30x speed ;)

Hello, wknight.
I found my first block at your pool. 8) http://explorer.litecoin.net/search?q=385595 (http://explorer.litecoin.net/search?q=385595)
I want to report some minor bugs I found.

1. Hashrate of miner. There are 3 different values at your pool. See screenshot1 http://s24.postimg.org/5gmr1nki9/Scr1.jpg (http://postimg.org/image/5gmr1nki9/)
Also if you sum all worker's speeds at "My workers" page you will have another third value of hashrate.
2. You may see strange artifacts in "Dashboard" field at above screenshot. Tried in Chrome and Firefox - they don't disappear even after page refresh or re-login. See them during last 4 days.
3. Wrong statistic data if miner is not in top15. See screenshot2 http://s23.postimg.org/tgf3vjv4n/Scr2.jpg (http://postimg.org/image/tgf3vjv4n/)
LTC and USD per day is equal to the fifteenth guy.

Hey uzgen,

Here my annotations to your bug reports (thanks for those :))

1. Hashrates in the various sections on the site are filled via a statistics cron. Since some stats are filled prior to a second query  to run, they might diverge slightly. This is not really an issue but may be confusing if you didn't know there are caches involved.

2. This is due to the sidebar being static in width and sometimes the table exceeds the available space. Then lines are wrapped and result in a funny display like that. I did increase the sidebar width on the upstream build, maybe WKNiGHT just forgot to merge those over.

3. Wrong data was used on the templates for the users not making the Top 15. As you noticed, it used the 15th place data instead. This is fixed in upstream and just needs to be merged into the template WKNiGHT is using.

Hope this helps :) WKNiGHT, get cracking! :D

Well due to not liking how the hashrate layout looks I am going to shit can the hashrate link on this template.

However, I will be upgrading the front end very soon which will allow for different template switching. So this way you can use the default template to see hashrate and other graphs correctly.

Elitist Jerks just became a little more Elitist

Since I am still evaluating how I would like to address VARDIFF I decided to hold off on our upgrade to the server.

Instead We have changed your mining difficulty to 128.

Where does this leave you as a miner?

Well you will be submitting less shares HOWEVER you will be paid more per share.

This reduces bandwith for pool owner and miners alike. This is one reason why VARDIFF was introduced. Reduction of bandwith.

However this is where our elitist part comes in. CPU miners will be effected as they do not submit many shares as it is. Remember your shares will now have a greater value.

Elitist Jerks still prides itself on being a VERY easy pool to use. We are focused on up-time, payouts and let you move on with your life. Many of us long term miners have been around for years and the mining novelty has warn off. We want to set our miners and forget them.

Thanks to all our miners for being part of Elitist Jerks

Focusing the importance of Offline Wallet I added some new things in the background to keep our Ledger up to date. This provides better scaling to protect your coins in case of security issues.

This does not protect against your account however. Everyone is responsible for their own accounts on the pool

I have my account set up for automatic transfers on reaching 1 LTC.

Noticed since your updates on the 16th that the TX fee has increased from .02 LTC per automatic transfer to .10 LTC

Didn't see any mention or notice about that in your updates above. Is this a permanent increase?

I've been having a lot of trouble with CGminer randomly stopping to work when it receives a "Detected new block on stratum..." message. I checked everything I know how to check and posted for help, the only answers I've gotten have to do with the pool possibly being at fault. Is anyone else having this issue, or have any idea what could be causing it? Might it be the maintenance and upgrade(s) process? If so, is there any ETA on a finishing/stopping point?

Maintenance is now over on the server. I reverted a lot of things back to the old way since I was not happy with how stratum was handing out work. Customizing what I want as far as the stratum we are using has seemed to be a better fit for our miners. Also another reason why we have not gone with VARDIFF

My idle worker notifications are not working at all. My miner is still getting knocked offline at random by "new block detected" messages (no clue what's causing this), but I'm no longer receiving notifications when it goes offline.

What are you mining with? If your seeing "new block detected" a lot this means your shares are below 128 right now. So if your cpu mining it will take a while to get a share. However, your shares are worth a lot more.. it evens out.. lowers bandwith. Basically you get paid twice as much a share then 64.. and 4 times the amount for 32.. This is what VARDIFF is all about.

We originally went back to 64 diff but noticed a huge overhead on the database entries. We decided to go back to 128.

The main goal is allow for people to set their own difficulty per each minor. But this is going to be a bit of code change and working with someone back the backend stratum.

I have a dedicated machine running 2 7950s. I had some trouble tweaking it so right now it's just running at defaults. The dashboard on the site reports my sharerate around 0.14/s, and hashrate around 1200KH/s.

So, not blazing fast, but not that slow, either. The plan is to expand it to 4-5 GPUs, but I can't justify doing that until I can get the first 2 stable.

It's not that I'm seeing "new block detected" frequently, it's just that every now and then when it sees "new block detected" it will just stop working. The computer and cgminer do not detect any crash or bluscreen or shutdown, all the fans continue running at the same speed, but the cards stop pushing out hot air, and the logs stop recording anything, I can't remote in anymore and the pool reports the worker offline, so I have to manually restart the machine.

I posted in another thread looking for help, and it was suggested it might be a problem with the connection to the pool or something wrong with the "new block detected" message being sent, but I have no way of checking this. I'm somewhat at a loss at the moment, I really don't know what to do to debug this because I have absolutely no message or error to go on....

Frustratingly now, though, I no longer receive the "Idle Worker" notifications, either, which is what the first post was about. :P

NEXT BLOCK WE ARE MOVING BACK TO PROPORTIONAL PAYOUTS
Well guys after 3 weeks of just horrible luck I decided its in the pools best interest we go back to Proportional payouts. and 0% Fee's. With rising difficulty on Litecoin. More PPS pools starting up at lower fee's the numbers just doesn't add up. The Pool is over 1k in the hole at this current time and there is no real benefit in running a pool at a huge loss.

However, many people like this pool. The new layout. The stability. ETC. With keeping that in mind I decided the only fair thing to do is move back to proportional payouts. As soon as this next block is found I will pay the normal PPS value and then switch to Proportional.

I am sure we will loose a few miners in doing so. I thank everyone that decided to be part of the pool as Pay Per Share. But I feel moving away from Pay Per Share is in in the pools best interest.

EJPool looks to have been hacked. Since I use a hot wallet not all the funds have been withdrawn. Whatever you had in your account is still backed up offline. I will first need to figure out how EJPool was hacked and then send out payouts to each account.

As of right now the Pool is closed and I am not allowing for any mining at this time. I want to be up front about things and will keep you posted.

Any questions or concerns please email wknight@ejpool.info

Thank you

Update: The Hack was found and had nothing to do with MPOS. He obtained access through phpmyadmin. He then entered the database gave his account a false credit and manually withdrew the amount which cleaned out the wallet.

This does mean he had database access. He did download the database in fact. I suggest changing your password if you use it anywhere else. Passwords where salted however its better to be safe.

What people care about most. There account balance.

I will be paying out of my own wallet to everyone's account. I will be pushing out payments one by one. If you do not receive a payout by tomorrow please email wknight@ejpool.info with your username. I will check the database and send you the correct amount. Rest assured you will get paid your balance.

After a full clean up. I found it to be better to allow users the choice if they like to continue to mine on a private pool or take their coins and cash out. I covered all coins lost in the hack.

I thank everyone for their patience.

Pool Invites..

I am just going to address this since I have had quit a few PM's and emails about it.

Yes I will invite you to the pool on one condition. Your a miner that would like to move away from a larger Litecoin pool.

I had a lot of people like that fact that I am a stand up guy and covered the pools Litecoins that where stolen and not just making the miners suffer.

I do however, believe that all miners should not use the pool as a wallet. No more then 10 coins should be stored on the wallet in any account.

Anyways, thanks for a lot of positive feedback.. its been great.

The pool has been fantastic. And a lot of good luck

Registration is open once again for new miners.

This is the time to give Elitist Jerks a try. Pool was hacked. I paid for all Litecoins stolen. Pool had a security check and things are really tight. Just need to add https so peoples sessions dont get high jacked.

Database is constantly backed up.. Hot wallet/Cold wallet. This is why only a small amount of coins where taken.

We can take a hit and no effect to our miners.

Load was high on pool this morning. It seems someone is being a bad boy at work and using their servers for mining on off hours. However there is soooo many servers he is using its like a botnet. Putting a huge strain on the server resources. I am going to work on a few things to get things a little more comfortable :)

My miner just lost connection to the pool and is having trouble reconnecting. I can get to the website, and everything else seems fine, but it can't find the pool. Has anything changed?

Also: getting started page lists both port 3333 and 8337 - which is correct?

Update: Connection returned.

My miner's spent most of the last 2 days not mining...

I like this pool and all, but I might have to go someplace else if I'm going to keep having these sorts of problems...

Nothing on my end has changed in probably over a month, and all my hardware and software passes any diagnostics I put to it, it just all comes crumbling down on any attempt to connect to the pool 9/10 times the last 2 days, starting about 7:30 am yesterday.

Updated on Elitist Jerks Litecoin pool.

DDOS has ended late yesterday. So I was able to access the server with no problems.

Here is the deal. The wallet has a balance of 0.2 litecoins. Here is the reason why.

27 days ago We had an issue with our software which payed out too much Litecoins to two accounts.

http://www.reddit.com/r/litecoin/comments/1skc70/a_good_ending_as_well_as_a_cautionary_tale/

One person sent 75 LTC back to the Pool. The other 75 LTC was never sent back. This put the pool in a negative balance.

Before this we where hacked. on Oct 25th in which the pool lost 225 LTC. I covered this out of my own pocket to pay its members.

https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=4211.msg50790#msg50790

And before all of this we where a PPS pool in which had a huge run of bad luck in which just over 1000 LTC was paid out on blocks never found.

I have tried to cover everything up to this point and have lost way to much money to problems with this pool. After the last two blocks where found payouts where sent in the auto payout que and we don't have enough to cover everyone payouts.

I can no longer invest money into something that will never get it back. Why would anyone keep putting money into something that has had too many problems.

Yes is it my fault.. sure it is.. Software isn't perfect. People will exploit it. I did my best to try to keep a honest pool running and even cover some mistakes but the time has come I can no longer do this.

I have been a member of the Bitcoin/Litecoin community for many years. And to go out like this really sucks. But at some point enough is enough.

I saw someone post in the IRC over last night this. "or someone ran off, with the money and skipped town :-P"

That just pissed me off to no end. Knowing how much money I put into this pool to keep it running.

Pools get hacked and there is software issues that have plagued many.

Yes pools continue to run. Either by people donating money to pay for the loss or pools try to absorb the loss in a way. But it will never be 100%

To sum things up ejpool.info is closed for good. With the loss of Litecoins over the past few months it wouldn't be in anyones best interest to continue to run the pool.

This was the 2nd pool I joined after the 1st one had hardware issues and also closed down.
Not a great start, Guess I will give weminelitecoin a try, hopefully 3rd time lucky
