Emergency Downtime.  We have to move, can't have this lag / disconnects anymore.  

ETA ~4.5 hrs of downtime, although ST6 is getting really fast at this.

It may take that long, but we were prepared for this, just moved it sooner because of the terrible performance today, so it will likely be faster.

I love what your doing guys but the disconnects have become a real issue.  Can we start up a new server fund or something, I'd be willing to donate.  I really want to see you guys grow but that's not gonna happen until you pin down these network issues.

It isn't a problem of money. We buy servers, set them up and watch them and we've been getting disappointing results for the most part. Lag is certainly a serious problem, but a server going completely dark for several minutes or more is a worse problem and we don't want to make a move to a server where that happens more frequently. Restrictions on where we are willing to run a server and ddos protection requirements make it challenging, but we will solve it, hopefully very soon.

What is the shortest password I can use?  This will enable me to log back on faster when I get disconnected. 

I downloaded 2.15.  I played a tourney and got disconnected 5 times in an hour.  There was also lag.  For example I would see 5 of the 9 players post their antes and then it would pause.  When the pause finished not only had all the remaining antes been posted but people had folded raised and called preflop and awaiting my action.  The lagged happened multiple times without being disconnected.

It may not be a good idea to use a very short password.

In the options menu go to the bottom and selection 'connection options' then click 'auto login on D/C'.

 So basically swc gives almost 10 bitcoins ( maybe even more I really dont know) weekly for freerolls? Thats awesome Cheesy

Yes, currently slightly more than 10 BTC in completely free public freerolls each week.

I don't have exact current numbers handy, but we spend even more in overlays on guarantee tournaments. The largest of the week is usually the 10 BTC guarantee tourney on Saturday. Last week we added 2.59 BTC to the prize pool. It costs 0.1 BTC to get in the big Sat game.

 I know this is a long shot , but if my math is correct , if you win every hourly freeroll in one day , you can make 1.2 bitcoins a day from just freerolls on swc right?

1.2 BTC is the total of prizes in the hourly games.

Currently we have a 1 BTC freeroll on Wednesday night and 2 daily PLO8 freerolls for 0.1 BTC each.

After you earn some krill there are even more freerolls available to you and they can be more profitable because of the limited entry and larger prizes.

We've released v0.2.15 which has a setting for d/c detection and auto-reconnect and a few other features.

Mac and Ubuntu clients are coming very soon.

We have maintenance downtime scheduled for 11am ET Friday the 23rd. It should last 30 minutes or less. Some tournaments that would otherwise be interrupted will be canceled we'll have a nice freeroll afterwards.

I have a question about the affiliate program, in the description it says " Affiliate earnings paid monthly (must have over 2 BTC in earnings or account rolls over, you never lose credit)", I've noticed that chips generated from my referrals are being added to my balance in 24 hours or so after confirmed.

So, no 2 BTC minimum required? I assume I can play with those chips, right?

That is old and left over from when affiliate payments were manual and 2 BTC was a cheap meal.

As long as you've earned a full single chip that you haven't been paid for you'll get it on Monday.

There is no pop up notification for affiliate payments like there are for rakeback, but you can see your payments using a link near the bottom of the My Account page.

micon is the seals client currently being developed?

its seems we been on the 0.2.14 for ages lol

We've been working on the mac and linux clients. After the specific things that need done to support the other OS are in place regular development will continue.

"PLO Special Freeroll" is now online, 0.1 BTC prize pool, 7 places paid. It will run every 12 hours for a few days. It may switch to PLO8 for a while before it closes.

Since registration is open 12 hours in advance and it is free, no shows will be removed after one round (6 minutes) of initial inactivity.

Great. Now what you need are market makers. Nobody wants to trade a thin market and nobody wants large (or non-existent) bid-ask spreads. Normally the way to kick-start this a bit is by getting a few pro traders to create a market by entering multiple orders. This increases liquidity and makes trading more attractive.

Good market makers can generate a steady profit, just like good bookies. If you can attract a few of them to your site, you will ensure more liquidity and market depth, making it much more interesting for punters, and a much more efficient prediction market.

Either that... or get a dozen Beta-testers and give away a few BTC on the condition that they bet on every single statement.

As a trader who is very much fed up with the paperwork involved in traditional fx, options, equity trading platforms... I am very much looking forward to your success. If you can tap into the FX market, you could be huge.

Thanks for your feedback, we are working with a few people interested in doing market making for a few specific markets. We also have a Trading API for people who wants to become maket makers for Predictious.

Uh... the event date for all of these bets seems wrong:

The Breaking Bad Season 5 Finale is not August 10th. That is merely when the Season 5 (second half) starts.

Yes, but in theory, the characters may die at any episode. People can't all watch it at the same time (as opposed to a sport event), and we don't want to favor people who can watch it "live".

One way to make this work better would be an optional "Cancel my offer at X time" which would allow people to make offers that would end before the next episode at which point they could re-evaluate if they wanted to and post a new offer. Those who do watch could have an exciting time making and revoking offers in real time during episodes. Same thing with sporting events and elections.

Markets like these will always favor those who can give more attention and study. I think providing tools to make it as simple as possible for people to express their money-backed-opinions is a reasonable goal.
92  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Do you think people pulling out of mining is good for Bitcoin? on: August 07, 2013, 02:18:50 AM
We can't afford not having people on our side doing the mining; if honest miners don't hold the line, we risk getting screwed by dishonest ones.

Which is why ASICs are so good.
Common joe's can buy a one or two and join a pool.

90 ghs will be worthless in 6 months time .  this is what i think.  bitcoin will become what it hates the most! 

Incredibly huge speeds amounting to absolutely nothing is exactly what will secure the network.

If mining isn't profitable in an individuals situation then they should spend the capital on bitcoins instead, that will marginally increase the supply of mining. So there is no loss and you it helps secure the network.

The reason it appears that players are doing the policing is that it isn't a serious issue to spew accusations in the chat. Writing emails with suspicions is helpful, but involves no risk. We have to do a careful study before taking action. If we think there is a 95% chance that isn't good enough, we aren't going to close accounts and take funds from the 5% who happen to play together often and irregularly for innocent reasons.

We've always had more NLHE action than PLO, but right now there are 4 games over .25/.5 running and a LO8 25/50 running.

We removed 27 clearly cheating accounts that played PLO in June and July, that's certainly going to decrease the raw numbers, but the legitimate play is steady.

Cheating is more powerful in Omaha games for sure, but the only way to completely eliminate your chance of being cheated is not to play with more than one stranger. If anyone knows enough players that they want to distribute a password to I will set private games at any stakes, just email or PM me. I'm not convinced many games can form that way, but if it because popular to play that way we can automate private game creation as well.

Wow only 6 million Cheesy

This site is due for a facelift and step one is to get the chart done 'in-house'.

Lol, I thought this post meant that difficulty was about to increase by 6 million. But I see it's only ~4 actually.
95  Economy / Gambling / Re: | Largest Bitcoin Poker Site | No Banking | Fast Cashouts on: July 31, 2013, 06:14:49 PM
Could I get a clarification please...?

I was under the impression that it is perfectly okay to have more than one account, so long as the accounts weren't playing at the same table.

But I see other players complaining on another site about 'multi-accounting'.

Is having more than one account okay or not okay....?

Having multiple accounts is fine. The main thing that you lose by splitting your play is your progress toward higher krill levels.

They've been supporting Seals and sponsoring tournaments for... longer than I can remember at the moment.

So the dice and flips were removed from the lobby because it is all one would see in the lobby a few weeks ago. Looks like they are back and it is pretty annoying. I know ender needs to make his dollars maybe a separate lobby for him it really is pretty irritating non stop for past few days. ty.

I believe the betting is out of the lobby again. If there is still too much 'bet' chatter you can block it like any account and even stronger you can block all commands (from players to 'bet') and responses with the option 'Block SealsDeals Chat' in the options menu.

Eventually we will have multiple chat channels.

I have a problem with your statement about how "many" stores around your are accept bitcoin. What percent of stores in your area accept bitcoin? Say anything over 0.01% (as in one for every 10000) and I'll call you a liar. I can honestly say that where I live, not even 0.01% percent of people I meet know about bitcoin. Bitcoin is not viable. It -does not- matter how hard you attempt justify it. It's not. Maybe one day, but not now, and not anytime soon. The only people that use bitcoin currently are future investors, people experimenting, and pioneers that have no idea where they're heading just as the story of Columbus goes...

Have you met 10000 in the last several years? And 0-1 of them knew about Bitcoin?

I meet very few people and at bare minimum 10% of them know about bitcoin. The very last person that I met randomly (a friend of an acquaintance who himself did not know about bitcoin) knew a little bit.

Seals has thousands of poker players, some of them are "future investors, people experimenting, and pioneers" but many are just using it because it works great.

Maybe somebody else created a keypair for that address? I know it is very unlikely, but it could happen. So I would spend any money in that address and not use it anymore. Just in case.

To all intents and purposes it couldn't happen, if all software is functioning correctly, any more than all the atoms in someone's underwear could just simultaneously decide to move three feet to the left.  Quantum mechanically you could argue that it's possible but unlikely, but that's just sophism (or more accurately fine comedic writing).

But, of course, software can have bugs.  Could there be a flaw in the random number generation which makes a collision plausible?  Sure, there could be.

Still, I don't believe it, given the evidence in the blockchain.
Still, if OP has not divulged his address, how could the anonymous sender know his address? Duh, the blockchain is a public ledger, the question is why him specifically, and not somebody else?

It isn't him specifically, it is him and a bunch of somebody elses.

If it is ongoing maybe it would be worth it to figure out the mechanism used for deciding and snag some cool milibits.

I wanna say that I still never received the bounty I am owed.

Both of these have been paid. You can see two 20 chip transfers from 'bet' in your transfer history. Sorry for the delay.
