So you'd need to be genning about 140 btc/month to get fees to pay off the server (2.8 btc = ~$80).

That's about 82GH at my best estimate, seems like a reasonable endeavour. Anything beyond the first 82GH should be donating to charity until the next difficulty increase.

In the "Account" settings, there is an option of donation, of which is default at 0%. So, to clarify, this would be addition to the 2% stated on the home page?

ive added you to my websites pooled mining list: http://btcxc.info/mining.html

do you support long polling? any chances of getting SSL in the future?

ok, i know your asleep, but still some advise:

1. get a favicon for your website. makes it look better when bookmarked and when looking at the tab + it is easy to set up.
2. change your sig. dont write "...our fees plant trees..." but instead write "...your fees plant trees...". makes it look more appealing Cheesy
3. check if long polling is enabled. im getting stales in the two digit area. @deepbit its sub 1%. thats important, no one wants to waste that much of their hashing-power. even for a good cause.

I think your pool speed is off/wrong/lying.

User Id   Hashrate
19           79793

Your saying that you have 1 user is running 79GH/s.  Then it also says that miner has -2 shares:

User Id   Shares
19            -2

Wow, negative shares! That's new.

So when your pool runs @ "83.2 GH/s", the biggest user in the pool is 79GH/s with -2 shares...I don't believe for 1 second that you're really running a 83.2 GH/s.

Nice try though.  Please fix your pool speed indicator. People don't like it when you get this type of thing wrong.

the rate was correct and was coming from me. it also showed the correct number of shares in the user interface. the statistics delay could be a bit shorter tho. the hashrate dropped after i switched back to single gpu mining, some minutes between the switch nothing was running.
i think the hashrate and number of shares are updated differently. it was still showing the old hash rate but it didn't count new shares anymore because i detached the grid, so there were no shares anymore.

Please don't get me wrong. Buying rainforest land is great, a real step forward. But anytime I see the phrase "carbon footprint" my blood starts to boil.

carbon = plant food

but regardless al gore and the other main stream media has gotten everyone to be worried about the co2 coming out of your mouth when you speak.

That being said - saving rainforests - good idea.  if you want another site check out rainforest.org - $50 USD = 1 acre put into trust permanently.

It was the cheapest way I have ever seen.

Erm... spongehead, what are you mining with?

There's a user with 135GH/s right now, I guess it's you.
But it shows you have submitted a total of 42 shares only Huh (and it just went down to 41 Shocked)

i dont know. the stale rate was this high until i hit about 90-100 shares, then it got less. so maybe it was just bad luck i had those 10% stales at the beginning.

as FairUser already said the stats were even showing negative shares!
and since i detached the rig and switched to single gpu, it started counting from zero again. o.O

the hash rate you see seems to be calculated very delayed. in the user interface it says 10minutes delay, however this can't be true.
i switched from the rig back to a single gpu more than an hour ago.

and the current shares you see, are correct ...but only for the single gpu! all the the shares before that came from the rig somehow got turned into a negative share and it started from zero again... Sad

  • Based upon the Push Pool and Simplecoin open source mining software - thank you to their developers!
  • 50% of our profit purchases trees through Trees For Our Future - a 501(c)3 non profit.
  • 50% of our profit purchases rainforest land through the World Land Trust - a 501(c)3 non profit.
  • As we begin purchasing trees and land, we will provide receipts and other documentation here and on our site as proof.

I think you should make it more clear in the original post how much of the pool profit goes to running the servers. I realize you plan to "eat" the initial cost.

Somebody asked about donations mentioned in the simple coin interface. Should those be ear-marked for running the servers?

Great idea, I was hoping more charity type pools would emerge soon! (and please ppl, do not attack climate change theories in this thread, if you are a climate change denialist just do not join or go start a pool that donates to Rand Foundation or something) As soon as you work out the kinks, I will direct my hashes your way.

Awesome! I was actually looking for a pool that I really feel worthy of supporting and this is it. Kudos for creating this!!!
Wonderful!  If you have any trouble getting setup, let me know Smiley

Everything worked fine so far; I'm using DiabloMiner on a Mac. I'm "part-time-mining" with my 2007 Mac Pro with a GeForce 8800 GT. So that just adds a humble 20 MHash/Sec. But I'm in the Top 20 ;-) ... well, just 11 workers currently online, so no surprise.

The stats certainly need a little reformatting (make those two tables more separate by adding some padding between the first and the second one; and make them look "really nice", e.g. by right-aligning the numbers).

You absolutely need to get HTTPS up and running. And Logout didn't work for me (on Safari).

So I'd say there's still a bit of work to be done! ;-)
