Nope you still don't get it. But keep trying, most people are nice on this forum and are helpful if you ask. I read that link. "The basic idea is that older shares (from beginning of the round) have lower weight than newer shares. " Nowhere does it say if I am offline for 2 hours out of a 10 hour block my share is 0. If read correctly I should have had some small payout.
Although the process is nicely described and mathematically correct (albeit the current "C" decay variable being completely unknown, as it is described as subject to change), it doesn't give much practical info to a beginner new at the pool.
And indeed it nowhere states :
- leave the pool for ~30 Minutes and lose your entire shares reward (regardless of number of shares delivered)
- jump in anytime for a mere ~30 Minutes and get full reward based on your GH/s performance (even if you participated only in 10% or less of a round total time, doesn't matter)
Took me a while to find out just how ultra-sensitive and extreme the anti-hopping logic treats the score.
After understanding the extreme asymmetry, of course the understanding for the expected score/reward came. Still, I'm not surprised seeing questions still popping up (i.e. I gave 100000 shares to a round but literally got nothing ?!
), they're still legit and understandable.
All the rest would be philosophy (i.e. is the extreme anti-poolhopping sensitivity justified? etc.) and I won't go into that - things are the way they are. They work, so one can get used to them. That's why I'm still there, slush is still my favorite pool.
