... 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 ...

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.

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!

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)

well I have to agree with the communication.. It's kind of sad when this thread is monitored better ( and maybe only) by the owner of our competing pool (BTCguild)

Now if we can just get the one from a few rounds ago sorted out.

You'll see that after every found block if you refresh every minute. It will go from processing, to none/none, then will incrementally increase your reward as it calculates your specific account until it's done. *Usually* from the time it goes from processing to full reward is about 2-3 minutes. The time it takes to go from processing to none/none fluctuates considerably tho - I've seen it as fast as a few minutes up to over 40 minutes.

I thought I could just chill and wait but I couldnt do it anymore. I moved to BTCGuild. My first two weeks of mining has been pretty rocky and now I just cant accept this lack of communication from pool operators. If we pay fees here then we are customers right? Do we pay fees? I thought we did. That would make us customers and it is totally unprofessional to snub your customers like this by not communicating. I'm going to try btcguild and see how it is over there.

Are you running PPS or PPLNS on BTCG?
Always PPLNS. Way better.

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).
PPLNS!

As for crying, if a whole lot of us cried Slush will either improve or vanish. I'd rather see it vanish than run crap like this and treat miners just as crappy.

I started with Slush so I keep giving it another shot, every time ending up moving back to BTCG because people are treated with respect. So you all go ahead and put up with this crap and pay your power-hog earnings to the pool operator because I'm out of here. Funny it's not even the pool operator that's pissing me off, it's the ignorant miners that populate this pool.

Keep Slush rounds short by donating to my wallet 1Pbmm1L69wNG7HaCHGLmVKzVCsq6p3UTds and also in case I actually helped someone.

Mining on guild is a psychological disservice to bitcoin by making mining appear to be centralized. That pie chart is ominous and perhaps more dangerous in it's placebo effect than anything else.

Mining slush is good.

Do you even mine?

I'm already regretting moving. I don’t know if I'm doing something wrong but the reward seems low. With about 280G I was getting .01 or better per round, that as about .1 to .15 in a 24 hour period. I understand BTCG has WAY more hashing power so rewards are lower but more frequent? But it only shows about .0002 to .0004 per block so far (there have been 6 blocks found in the last 2 hours) it doesnt seem like that math is going to add up but I'm hanging in there I think to at least see what the 24 hour earnings will be. But I am wanting to come back already..lol just get it fixed plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
