I've only been mining for about 30 days here in Slush's pool, and there have been several problems in those 30 days. They have all been fixed - except for one (skewed payouts about 2-3 weeks ago) - but I have to say that if I had caused this many issues at my day job then I would have been fired the first week. I've tried to stay positive through all of these problems, shit happens right? But I'm getting a little tired of being continually frustrated by problem after problem. I wish we had some context on why these problems keep happening, that might help us to understand why there have been so many recently. They may be the original pool, but it seems like it's more of a hobby sometimes.

One question we always ask where I work: how can we prevent this from happening again. Might want to ask that from time-to-time Slush.

*Disclaimer: I'm tired, frustrated, on-call, and watching all my work being reversed with each block we find. I'm a low-volume miner so every little bit counts.

I guess in this business there are a lot of alternatives that are easy to set up and easy to switch to... So there is no real reason to stick with it unless there are loyalty bonuses involved... To switch temporarily to a fully working pool has no downsides?



Switching pools for some users is like walking into a dark alley,  but today we are being HIT in daylight on the main road.(for some anyway).  
Pool failover/switchover is not an act of disloyalty, it is self preservation.
When the problem is fixed you can switch back again.

For me it's not as easy as switching to another pool for a day then back. It takes me about 6 days to make 0.1 bitcoins @ 32GH/s so I have to stay at least 3-4 days so I can get enough mined to hit the minimum amount I can move to my wallet (generally around 0.04 to 0.05 of a bitcoin, depending on the pool).

On a side note - has anyone else noticed that when a maintenance is going on, and the link says to check their facebook page for maintenance status, that there is no status on that page? The page hasn't been updated since November..... Yet another thing to add to the pile.

eligeus  will let you set 0.02 as your withdrawal, so that is currently 2 days with 32Gh.

today is new years eve.  Tomorrow is new years day.  I honestly do not see this problem being fixed any time soon.

It looks as though as the newer blocks are being added on to unconfirmed (even though many of them are mow  'confirmed') then the oldest blocks that have not been paid out are being deducted from this 'unconfirmed' total! This has been happening since block 21304 - it looks like it could take a while to properly work out rewards due to everyone. I am hoping that the due rewards will be paid automatically rather than everyone having to put a claim in for unpaid blocks 21304+ which may go unnoticed by many.

it would be nice to at least know that this is being looked into and do they really want everyone to put in a claim? I see the new found blocks  look to be on hold from confirming so I would only think this is being worked on?

the new found blocks are not on hold, they will update when the current working block is found.

the currant block we are working on is going on 1hour 45mins and the last 2blocks show still processing where it usually only takes 10 mins or so to start the confirming and having the break down of he block showing. So I would think that these 2blocks ( and any new ones) are somehow being held up until they get this problem fixed?

Graphs are not updating either.  I'm not okay when someone messes with my money.  If things are not solved soon I am definitely switching to another pool.

The pool is broken, each time a new block is found your confirmed credits are DEDUCTED from your total. Not added.

Hop to your backup pool and come back when (if) this gets fixed and your missing BTc are credited.

 Otherwise you could be throwing BTc into a black hole.

The good news is we are having some great luck! The bad news is none of us is getting paid for it!  Grin

All kidding aside, even though I have never seen this problem here in the past, Slush has for the most part always come thru and got things straighten out.

I have switched pool - very odd because a few minutes later I checked my Slush account page and it said last share 3 hours ago (was 0 minutes a few minutes earlier when hashing on Slush!)... I don't doubt Slush's honesty or reputation - but can you now trust the actual mining mechanism to be working properly? It is quite possible with the last 2 blocks found stuck on 'processing' that your current mining efforts are being wasted... I shall return when payouts resume or we have an update as to what is happening and some reassurance that current mining is working.

Hopefully this is gong to be fix. I have never seem this problem before.

Well it looks like its back up and running. My confirmed amount went up, but am still missing all those blocks that never got added on. ( or taken away )

Edit: I do notice that my overall earnings has dropped during this .. Hope that is  being worked on

My amounts are going up so it does indeed look like its being taken care of at this time..

Yeah, looks like my payout threshold was met and deducted, but not actually paid. Any update on this anyone?

I actually raised my payout so it would wait until this is all recalculated and straighten out. I figured the last thing needed was a bunch of payouts trying to take place.
