If slush's pool penalizes people for leaving not staying, whats to stop someone joining the round right at the end doing a few Gh/s then getting the same 'estimated reward' as they would if they were there mining all the time on that round? Is that how it works?

Just noticed that one of my miners found a block; 313457.  That's the first block I've found  Grin and I've been mining since March

COOL!
so are you mining solo? or so you mean you found the block somehow through slushs pool?

No, found it as part of the pool effort. It's the first time they've found one, quite chuffed

Slush says: "Estimated reward"... meaning it's an estimation only.. from what I can see based on the current hashrate of your miner(s)

You don't get the "Estimated reward" at the end of the block but in most cases something close to that.

After finishing a block, which can take over a day as we witnessed multiple times recently, you´ll see the status of the block change to processing. Only then every share you participated is calculated and the final payout determined.

I´m not sure of the exact calculation method for the estimated reward but it seems that it´s related mostly to your average hashrate. This explains why the estimation start to drop to zero after you switch pools or switch off your miners. However upon finalizing the block you´ll still get your rightful share...

BTW it´s  a know factor that payouts on Slush vary greatly, there´s simply not enough mining power (about 3 % of the total available) to sustain steady payouts.. so it all comes down to luck..

If you're looking for more steady payouts you should either opt for load balancing or entirely switch to a larger pool.

u need to stay a bit longer, be patient and try it out for at least 12 days,u will find out that each pool total payouts are more a like the same in long terms.
take the estimated payout and multiply by the block found, and u will get the figures.

At a quick glance the last 10 blocks average is about 5 hours p/block. And that includes the 29 hour plus block.
So yes, it's all about the long run. An no, we can't predict how long the current or next block will take so pool hopping is useless IMO.

I can only provide info on the last 300 blocks over the last 52 days - and this 29:27:23 has been the longest (the other one was 28:03:52 hrs) and we are still on an average of 5.77 blocks per day with an average time of 4:11:40 hrs per block

I can live with this  Grin

Something I don't understand.

We just had a block that took 29.5 hours.
Then we had a block that took 33 minutes.
I only got paid 13 cents more for the block that took 29 hours ?

The little voice in my head is confused.
Could someone give me the short and dirty explanation ?

One block is one block, no matter how long it takes. The time includes trying to find a block also. Here are some links to other common questions. Keep on Mining!!!!

47%, 93%, 92%

Been mining with slush for 6 months - and to me this is the worst period of blocks found i have witnessed, Just wondering why?

I don't want to leave slush as the payouts are great, and the community is also good, but just being able to afford costs when the blocks found are dropping off.

Blocks are harder to find with the recent difficulty raises...that coupled with the small hash rate Slush has...then add in the fact that there is greater than 1 Ph/s of miners that hop between Slush and other pool/s.

It is what it is yo...I will probably set my RK-Box miner to BTCGuild or Eligius once my new Garden unit arrives as I will only loose a small % of my hash rate on Slush when doing so.

Happy mining all!

I'm with you brother, it was a nice ride but something has changed.  It could be the difficulty increase but seems that Ghash wasn't affected as much if that was the case.
I think I need more regular payouts even if they are a little smaller. 
You know the old saying ? Slow and steady wins the race.
Sure the 10 block days that Slush has once in a while a great but the  Zero or almost zero days kinda cancel them out pretty quick.
I'm going to give Slush till the end of the week and if this long block business doesnt improve I'm afraid I'll have to go back to Ghash.
Did a quick calculation and I've already lost 85.00 this week alone by being here as opposed to Ghash.
Anyone else in the same boat ?

You get paid for each block found; time to find a block is irrelevant; found quickly or not is based on luck.
What you get paid for each block found is based (mostly) on the shares your miners contributed (how lucky they were)
On slush, reward also based on when you were mining the block if you weren't along for the whole ride (if you lose power and miners go down at beginning of round vs. going down at end of round you're luckier than vice-versa and your shares gained don't shrivel away)
So it depends on luck and luck and luck.

Well if that's the case then GHASH must have a horseshoe up their rear.  They keep plugging along at a steady pace and we are floundering.

Hey you ordered at BTC too! I however, plan to leave my RK on Slush and add my BTC VM-2 to SLush as well while movingmy R-boxes over to BTCGuild.
(BTW have my RK running very nicely now (hanging by chains from a wire rack with fans on all four outside blade heatsinks averaging temps of 39 C under full load at 350 freq and getting a steady 522 Gh/s wiht 8.6% errors). Smiley

Now if my Dragon miner would just arrive soon ...

What I meant by the first point is relative to pool hash rate but still true. Where round rates vary less on GHash (from seconds to hours) it's still based on luck. They hit the jackpot more because they bought more "lottery tickets" or have more pool hashing power (but how quickly still based on luck). Then of course each share is worth a lot less. But, at least you don't get penalized for dropping out during a round by your earned shares shriveling up.
