Ok, noob question for ya.

Do we each need to raise a ticket for the same problem??
If there are many of us with the same problem blocks then is a fix for one a fix for all??
Otherwise Slush support will get swamped with each of us reporting the same problems.
It is difficult to know if the priority of the issue is raised if there are multiple tickets, or if the support crew can manage multiple similar tickets in a flexible manner without getting swamped.
My low reward for the last block was just re-calculated, the outcome is much better than before (x3), but still slightly lower than my expectations (can live with that though...).

Cheers

Maybe Slush could provide a list of current faults or support tickets.
Would help him by not getting flooded with dozens of the same fault reports.

How do we go about making such a request from him?

Just a minute ago, my account page 'confirmed reward' and 'total reward' were corrected and are consistent with the values in the stats page (for Slush blocks #21696 to #21702).
Which rounds are missing for you?

Its fixed already. They must be playing around with something to fix the errors. I just looked at the wrong time I guess.

Ok. Fixed. Got  reply on my ticket:

Code:
Hello

we apologize for the inconvenience, as we were experiencing technical difficulties. The problem should be solved by now.
If not, please let us know.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,
Pool support team

Looks OK to me now. I can't see if I am missing blocks. Numbers and rewards are OK here.  Smiley

Never utter a word about slush pool issues as they fix themselves......

I used to what most people are complaining about but I came to realize as many other older miners are is that the pool fixes itself. I love this pool. Too bad it is not as big as the latger pools.

My thinking is people cannot handle the bad streak this pools gets with it happens....

How long does this self healing process generally take? I've got some rewards stuck in unconfirmed that were verified over a day ago. Just wondering when I should expect the Liquid Plumber to do it's work and ease the pipes.

when a blockie happens, the sh** piles up behind and just makes things worse.
If it were a home PC you could just pull the plugs.

Bonjour à tous Smiley
Hello to all Smiley

J'ai cette question svp, lorsque l''on voit défiler dans bfgminer "Pool 0 block found"
est ce que cela signifie que j'ai (la pool) participé à trouver un block
et pourquoi ne voit on pas après ce block dans "Statistiques"
et si oui, combien de temps après il apparait.

Grand merci Smiley

It means a block found on the network - not necessary from your 'Pool 0' and definitely not from you.
With bfgminer when you see "Found block for pool" - that is when it means YOU found it.

Usually - but not always and not for everyone. Nothing big, but it causes a certain loss over time and invisibly adds to the pool fee. More like a re-occuring annoyance that never gets explained.
The worst thing is that many problems are repeating over - and over - and over- and over - and effectively are never fixed, only workarounds are applied after sufficient tickets reach support.

Add to that the fact that the pool admin is AWOL most of the time, you get a pool that'll never ever make it >5% total hashrate. How could it under these circumstances ?
Fine with me btw. as I don't care anymore.

So what is the alternative?
Is there a better pool out there that has less problems or better luck?
If you know of one then do let us all in on the secret.

But seriously, is there a better option?

I am only a small fish in this pool but will stick it out as I live in hope that these problems will get ironed out soon.  Smiley

With bfgminer when you see "Found block for pool" - that is when it means YOU found it.

When I see "Stratum from pool 0 detected new block" in my bfgminer does this mean that the pool has found
a new block with 25 bitcoins or just a block with potentially 25 bitcoins in it? The current block number mentioned
in bfminer is that the number of the new found block?

If so I don't see all the new blocks found by bfgminer appearing in my stats. Why? Because I'm not working on all
the new found blocks.

The best alternative would be for the pool admin to address and fix these issues. They're cumulating small issues, so that would actually be a reasonable solution.
But since this is wishful thinking and he'll likely follow other interests, it just may not happen.

All you can do is check out the various pools, check their fees & feedback and give them a shot to see for yourself. The luck issue is a bit odd, part of it may just be inaccurate website reporting (who knows these days, where displays go odd for many days unfixed) or whatever.
Without any communication (IMHO the main issue on this pool) we'll never know for sure.

For me slush's pool has basically always worked more or less, but on average (functionality, errors, communication etc.) it's always been like a "96% pool". Works flawless about 96% of the time. The other times... well, we spend some time in this thread meeting new people Wink

So, maybe I am the only one but other than confirmed rewards showing up a bit slow, I am getting them and they have remained at the same level since I started mining here. Whatever the glitch was a few days ago when my hash rate halved, was corrected fairly quickly in my opinion. I don't have experience with others pools. Do other pools experience these same kinds of issues, and if so, why jump from Slush's to others? Just askin.

Group therapy. It's always beneficial to listen to others who suffer from the same affliction.

At least the information helps define what's common to a specific problem in hopes to address it in a concise manner.
