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.

Aye Aye Sir Alan. I unfortunately speak engineer past down from generations who never saw the need to have command of the English language in order to feed themselves.

To what Shakespearean work would you liken Slush; may I so boldly ask?

Methinks the forum - or much of its content - is modelled upon "Much Ado About Nothing".

looks like every day in the last week or so (outside of 1) has a 10+ hour round. . .  difficulty has gone up, but the round lengths are the killer. .

Looks like slush has also decided to reset the single day (or perhaps all) the pool luck. . .  No possible way the pool luck is at 100% when you have a 22 hour round within the last 24 hour window, another 8 hour round and currently working on a 9+ hour round. . .   Unless you somehow had 4 other blocks that were sub 1 hour that fit in that window ..   Not sure fudging the luck numbers make things look better for the rest of us that know better. ..

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?

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.

"There's no magic pool or else everyone would be there."

the majority of people mining have no clue whats going on, IF they did they would be mining on Slush.
Slush just needs to do 100% luck once and the pay outs still exceed other pools even with a 20 hour block slammed in there.

whiners who r clueless cant handle what math shows them

yeah there is NO WAY.... ZERO... it can be at 100%  so slush is fixing the numbers....

u know unless one of those days we had 160+% luck...

OH WAIT... we did.....

please pick up the sky around u its embarassing

day 1 35% luck day 2 165% luck. 2 day average is drum roll? anyone? anyone? 100%

The numbers were reset the last time the website went down, our 30 day went from 81% to like 124% when the site came back up.. The numbers would be a lot worse if they where a true running average. People saw the numbers and jumped to this pool, until they started to look at the block times, now most of them have left after doing their due diligence .. IMO

Exactly because of that I moved to ghash.io after 5 months in slush...

And very happy. Not an issue in 1 month now.

NO way - ZERO. ..   because the pool luck is 35% for one day and 165% for the 2nd day.   I was talking one day luck  numbers and a couple hours ago it was 100%. . 

There is no doubt those numbers were reset with some sort of web update.  I'm not saying the numbers would change, but when I said no possible way the 1 day was at 100% with those long blocks in there, yeah - don't think its possible.

I've made more on the current difficulty with BTC Guild than I did with Slush at the last difficulty. And that's with 2 days left till the next increase.

For me, the last 30 days on Slush have been the worst in almost 12 months of mining.

Hey there everone. How's it going. Sure seems like a lot of people like coming to this forum to complain yet say they are on other pools. Ok good for you - go back to your other pool and leave us alone. Most of us have tried and are still on other pools to some extent but we remain here, why.

Better payouts over time. Right now my BTC is better than Slush but on average can't compare the two since BTC has a very low payout.

And for those a little bigger why stay here, because you are a big boy here and when blocks are found get a good reward but on other pools you are just a little guy with little payouts.

My opinion. Gets so old all the complaining going on here - who cares!

Agree wholeheartedly - please take your Bitcoin moaning hardware elsewhere.
That'll take the pool down to a managable level of around 8-825TH and we can watch the 'luck' go up.
Adios, dont hurry back - luv ya....

Unfortunately there is no relation between the pool size and the luck in the direction you want. It's the opposite ...
When the luck increases - more people are joining, but then it should go down to compensate it and it look like the higher hashrate is causing the bad luck, but it is not. If no new miners join the pool a 12h block will actually take 13h

Why 'unfortunately'? Because if it was true, then a solo miner with CPU, would have much more luck and much bigger reward, then no one would need to join a pool at all.

actually not totally true. .  luck will change regardless of whether people are joining or leaving. . .  agree that higher hash rate is not causing bad luck (or good luck). . .  over time "luck" should be 100 over time. .   However, when you're talking 6 or so samples per day, its possible to have luck be good or bad and not come back to the average for long periods of time. . .  Its not unheard of to have good luck for 25 days or bad luck for 25 days because the sample sizes are too small. ..

Or you could all just go look at organofcorti's excellent weekly blog post, which lists the luck for most of the major pools.

Trying to chase luck makes about as much sense as granny tiltin' her chair on the slot she's been dropping nickels in because someone else might cash in.
