An insider has scammed us from our blocks of work.  The website dose not display the blocks from the last 22 hours and so someone has disabled it and stole our mining contribution to benefit himself i dont trust slush i will jump to another pool.

thats impossible not with 850TH/s

Yes I agree its not impossible i will jump too.
Yes all these missing blocks from the last 22 hours were "stolen" by every other mining pool,
please report back when you have found all of them, BYE!

BTc donations welcome:-  13c2KuzWCaWFTXF171Zn1HrKhMYARPKv97

You  got to love the randomness of slush if you look at the short term. It's a pool for gamblers (and according to our friend, allegedly thieves) Smiley.

Anyone trying to read the tea leaves over a two or three day period is going to be either elated or frustrated but in the long haul it averages out.

Yes I agree its not impossible i will jump too.

You could, of course, just check on blockchain.info to confirm that this is not the case.
https://blockchain.info/blocks

 Roll Eyes

No, please don't encourage that. https://blockchain.info/blocks just causes more problems, since it's often in error. Try http://blockorigin.pfoe.be/blocklist.php, it's more likely to be accurate.

I have around 1.3 THs and have been w/ Slush since I started mining in the summer of '13....the past few weeks have been extreme highs and lows..  If folks are jumping ship, where are they going?  What advantage is there to go somewhere else?  We are now back over 830Ths...we continue to have bad luck...thoughts?

Oh. Hashrate is not a good indicator of the popularity of a pool. Proportion of the network is a better indicator:




Slush's pool is the black line in the second group. It's been in decline for a long time, I don't see an improvement unless Slush makes some changes.

Thanks for this important insight into the situation.  It's likely that that the proportion of the network is an outcome rather than a cause. My gut feeling is that some areas of potential improvement are: 
Improve pool reliability - fix the various 'glitches' in reporting of rewards (probably teething problems related to recent 'upgrades')
Provide some presence on the forum, in addition to the 'ticket' system
Consider modifying the 'exponential anti-hopping' algorithm which is misunderstood and creates negative sentiments (or spend some time/effort to explain why it is so good)

Some clear advantages of Slush are:
Long term track record
Honesty
Low pool fee
Reliability of the core mining aspect

Eligius, BTC Guild, etc. Probably larger pools where they find more coins but pay proportionally less having more members to do so. Evens out the highs and lows through volume of blocks. I kind of like the roller coaster myself. Brings out the good and bad in everyone like a Bitcoin mining soap opera. Over time it's all the same IMHO. There's no magic pool or else everyone would be there.

Grin Probably more like a translator but in all honesty I appreciate you making an effort to work in English. Now your native tongue is either some other language or you're a recent graduate from one of our finer establishments.

I hath a bunch - almost Shakespearean!  If not a native English speaker, then definitely marks for effort.  Otherwise, text speak has a lot to answer for.

I kind of like the roller coaster myself. Brings out the good and bad in everyone like a Bitcoin mining soap opera. Over time it's all the same IMHO. There's no magic pool or else everyone would be there.

i like the highs and lows as well. .  then you get the emotion of the good and bad (and something to talk/whine about as well). .   The only drawback I see to it is that if you get a portion of bad luck while your mining is "relevant" - then it may not work out to be the same. .   Of course, the good luck works in reverse. ..  . .

For instance, if you get back luck for a month while difficulty is workable (say now) and you 1/2 of the coins you normally do, and then good luck next month, when the difficulty has risen three times, and you get double the coins next month - the math doesn't quite work out. . .  1/2 of more coins vs double of less coins is not so good. .   

Of course the reverse could also happen and we can't predict where the good luck or bad luck is going to happen and where, but unfortunately to me, it doesn't look like it'll all work out to be the same.   So, there also is a relevant  argument for more consistent payout pools that hash more and pay out consistently as you take some of the variance out of play. .   again, you'll lose out on some good luck but smooth out the bad luck.
