PPLNS (and PPS) payout systems don't affect when you mine - since it's random when blocks are found (on PPLNS).
(e.g. I mine 18hrs a day to my pool coz 6hrs a day elec is around 40c/kWhr)

Pool: https://kano.is - low 0.5% fee PPLNS 3 Days - Most reliable Solo with ONLY 0.5% fee   Bitcointalk thread: Forum
Discord support invite at https://kano.is/ Majority developer of the ckpool code - k for kano
The ONLY active original developer of cgminer. Original master git: https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer

It's random when blocks are found regardless of the payout mechanism of the pool Tongue.

Any pool using PPLNS or PPS would work just fine for you.  Just realize that your expected earnings need to be adjusted for the fact that you're only mining 7 hours a day.

Block finding has no effect on PPS Tongue
(unless the pool goes bankrupt due to not finding enough)

LOL... pretty sure we all remember a certain PPS pool that offered completely unsustainable payouts and ended up hundreds of BTC in the hole Smiley

Ah ok

I'm mining ghash at the min.

I thought I missed out on payouts as my mine was not active when the block was complete.

Is this not correct

No.  You don't have to be mining when a block is found... you just have to have accepted shares in the pool's payout calculations.

Missing payments - that's on the pool.  You should ask them why you weren't paid for your time mining.

If they aren't paying you, ask in their support thread.
If they don't do support, pick another pool Smiley

My advice is to pick another pool, ghash takes awhile too pay and their are others that have been known to pay better.

Kano
JonnyBravo
BCmonster
Eclipse
MMpool
BCdig
are a few I have mined.
