I love all the cry babies involved in BTC.  I come to the forums here for a good laugh when I see a block get messed up, just to make sure it wasn't just me.

Yup! I'm joining ranks of people getting ripped off today.

LOL!

If anyone here has been on Slush's pool for more than a day or two, then they would know that they always get fixed in a few hours or a day or two.  Quit crying...or well wait, don't cause I need my laughs...lol!

I have never earned a single Bitcoin yet, donate to my cause: 1ENkTtXCepkwwH2on3KdF6iPRFLnPe97Kp - and if you believe that donate more...

everything not add up again ?


Seems like we are working through a couple of glitches. The none payout and confirmed rewards taking a while to show up. I am just chillin because I know it will get sorted out eventually but still a little nerve racking. Hopefully pool operators are looking into some proactive steps to minimize these glitches. I have only been here a couple weeks and there have been several issues  that always get fixed. Is it normally like this or has it been a rough few weeks?

The thing that "bugs" me about it is that we only see this stuff during a stretch of bad luck... Things that make you go "hmmmm"...

Things like this do not inspire confidence.  People say they always get corrected, but they do not.  I left this pool before because they did not correct a similar problem, where did that $25,000 go?  We have a non payment for a confirmed block now and several blocks not being moved into the confirmed category in out personal accounts.  I so want to look forward to proper resolution of these matters, but time keeps going by without any correction.

Come on. Getting ripped off doesn't necessarily has to be monetary. The term "Ripped off" here is a fact that Slush has no intention of keeping anyone informed and/or happy. I've moved everything back to BTCG where I make less than Slush but I'm informed at all times and issues are not only fixed but communicated as well.

So not crying. It's just sad to see the oldest pool go so low.

Are you running PPS or PPLNS on BTCG?

You'll end up making more on Guild.  1% fee difference doesn't make up for paid orphans and NMC merged mining.  Assuming you're on PPLNS (which I would certainly hope you are).

everyone joins a pool knowing its advantages and disadvantages. Bottom line is no matter what you're taking a risk so why cry about if you lost some here switch to another pool or go solo .

Not everyone joins a pool knowing its advantages and disadvantages. I think most people join initially because of popularity. A pool needs to have an attractive quality to pull people away from a popular pool. A selling point of Slush is that it is the oldest pool and well established. To see quirks like this is disappointing at best and reason to switch pools at worst. Most people who are hashing at lower hash rate pools want to see the network diversified, and I should think others would want to keep people hashing here for the same reason. I recently switched some of my hashing here from HHTT since it closed, so I am new to this pool, and the recent quirks don't speak stability. I'm willing to wait it out, and I'm not "crying" about anything. I would just prefer to not be seeing a consolidation of hash power in just two pools, which is what I think quirks like this will cause.

I'd much rather see BTC Guild on top than Ghash.IO though.

Been curious but haven't looked into it yet... Can anyone explain to me NMC merged mining? Is this a scrypt coin for people without ASIC so they can still produce in a pool?

NMC was the first altcoin, and it is a SHA256 coin.  It was not designed as a currency, it's main use being a decentralized DNS system.  However, most people just use it to trade for BTC, and in 2011 people would hop on/off of NMC based on difficulty/profitability.  It was hurting BTC (big loss of hash rate), and ended up nearly killing NMC when the difficulty was driven up so high and the price so low that it was going to take *months* before the difficulty would adjust down again.

To fix that problem, the NMC devs designed a way for a coin to piggyback on the hash rate of another coin, by using the coinbase of the primary coin to embed a block header for the alternate chain, and allowing a way to similarly embed information in the primary chain into the namecoin coinbase to link the two together.  It proves that work was done to solve the NMC block at the same time as the BTC block.  In effect, NMC is now a byproduct of BTC mining if the pool is setup to do it.  It is created at no extra cost to the miner, and only a marginal extra cost on the server.

Eligius has a block with 10,139,820,992 shares a couple days ago. We're a little over half way there. Smiley

Edit: Hah! Timing luck! Too bad it is another block with no rewards. Now that was odd.. I saw it say none none and then refreshed a minute later and it was updated.

that happens to me because I'm refreshing my browser every minute after a block is found and sometimes I think I refresh right as it is changing from processing... to the reward because I will see none but then a another quick refresh reveals the reward. Now if we can just get the one from a few rounds ago sorted out.

Unfortunately, if anyone here has been on Slush's pool long enough, then a) they know things not always get fixed and b) most importantly are usually repeats.
IMHO that's the most annoying part, it's a frequently re-occuring issue almost every week. And someone does get those BTCs, so that's a 100% valid concern of people...

I don't care anymore since I'm about to finish my mining experiments but operators of more GHs/sec than me won't take it as lightly. Newcomers also are much more sensitive to such unexpected issues.
AFAIK, Slush's pool would be more successful if they got behind these issues and fixed them (maybe it's already in the works but we just don't know - Communication 101)
