I love slush's pool, been using it exclusively for months now. I happened to see something about the POT (pay on target) method on Ozcoin where you get more shares if you're the guy who finds the block, than with PPS. Intrigued I decided to give it a shot, and I'm liking it.

I'm wondering if slush would consider adding this in as an option for workers to choose?

Has anyone else tried POT long term? So far my results are favorable.

If you give the finder more, you give everyone else less. I've never found a block and don't expect to. this means that i'd just get less all the time.  Undecided

That's one side of the coin, but it's nice because it gives you the best of both worlds--you get the consistency of pool mining but you still can taste some of the sweetness of finding the block.

I'm actually being paid just as much through POT as I would normally be paid on Slush (actually, I've been getting more consistent returns by a little bit). I've also found 2 or 3 blocks in the past, so it would be neat to see a little higher bump for doing so.

And this is why there are different pools. if you know of one that works the way you want, use that one. Changing this one to work like that one would just make me look for another pool when i'm content where i am.

give it time. the Stats often do that for a few minutes after a block is found. Look back in an hour.

I've seen that last a while before as well...it will fix itself before the block confirmation/payout.

We've had a bad run of luck for a few days....let's see some luck balance soon.

Well, I just mentioned it as an option because some folks are loyal to pools (as am I), and since I like slush's alot, I figured I'd toss the suggestion. The other pool I'm on lets you choose which payment type you want, so it lets the users tailor it to themselves.

Nobody is trying to push you off.

It seems like slush's pool is hitting some bum luck the past few days which is why I switched to the other pool just to try it out. Just reporting back my findings.

POT very carefully designed to be fair (that is in the long term it will pay an average of [Bitcoin reward/network difficulty] for every share submitted).

Is it possible that Slush's pool have a mind of its own?  I've been pointing my miners to other pools for the sake of checking and comparing results.  When I came back to Slush's and resumed mining,  my reward balance was about 0.05 btc less than the last time I checked it out (all confirmed).  In a similar situation last week, I lost about 0.22 btc when I came back to Slush's and resumed mining.  I've let many unexplained losses slide before but this is really getting ridiculous.  I'd hate to make any accusation of pilfering but given these circumstances, I can't help think about it.

Slush, what's going on?  And while I'm at it, you don't even come to your own thread/forum anymore and address concerns of pool members.

Edit:  Changed "skimming" to a more appropriate term -- "pilfering".

This is why I keep going back to the Guild. They have the performance charts and info that I need to see. While other pools can easily add this info for their pools they do not, which makes me think something is always going on. I'll never trust a low fee / free free pool.

Considering the current value of a coin, these btc cents that are mysteriously disappearing into thin air are no longer trivial; not especially to me as my hashing rate is relatively slow and it takes me an awful long time to accumulate them.  Multiply these btc cents with the number of miner accounts in the pool...I leave this to everybody's imagination.  And speaking of which, there's really no total number of miners/accounts in Slush's stats, is there?

Simple answer:- "don't leave any coins in your account", it only takes a few seconds to change your withdrawal amount.
If you don't like or trust the pool(any pool not just this one) then move. The choice is out there.

Concerning missing bitcoins...check the stats page for invalid blocks.  If you have a good chunk of possible bitcoin but the block is invalid then you don't get that reward.  I've seen my possible balance drop substantially them looked at the stats page only to see multiple invalid blocks.

I was wondering the same thing. A few times this week I saw my accumulated return drop by a few 0.0x btc. These weren't unconfirmed, these were confirmed for payout.

I have also noticed this same problem very recently. Any ideas why so many invalids all of a sudden ??

block 267277 with a value of 37.2971608 .... what could be the reason? someone paying high fees for a transfer?

I just noticed, one of my miners found this block. My first block ever! I started in May with 10 Mh/s. Now i have 130 Gh/s with 40Gh/s on Slush Pool. Cheesy

The only other thing I can think of, because it's happened to me, is that  my miner went down near the end of the round and causes all my work to be worthless...but your score is next to the share count...
