Slush stopped posting here some time ago. Until the beginning of this year newbies couldn't make posts in normal threads and the members that were posting were just asking the same questions over and over. It had got really bad so slush quit posting in this thread because he was just repeating himself over and over because no one would read past posts for answers. He added the webchat, a ticket system and Facebook for announcements. It sucks but this forum had got out of control. Slush is a highly intelligent person and to explain the same simple things over and over again when there is a knowledge base link on the pool page and plenty of pages in the forum they could review over became too overwhelming. Also, at the same time having clueless miners accusing him of crazy things because they don't understand how a score based pool works wasn't very productive for anyone. He was trying to write new pool software for the pool and create a Stand alone bitcoin wallet to help bring bitcoin to wider audience so he stopped posting here to create those things. You can still post with him in the Development and Technical threads, so he is still available and answers questions, just not the ones that he has answered 1,000's of times since 2011. He left this thread unlocked so we could communicate and help each other out.

Finally. Another intelligent post. This one should be read by all newbs, but it probably won't



I all ways look for this first and  as a last resort ask newbie question and only then if I'm totally annoyed after hours of  looking, even, then i hate to ask anything .

We are a dying breed. But look at it this way, if something as 'technical' (for want of a better word - because it's pretty bloody straightforward) as bitcoins gets so much noise just imagine what it would be like on the more mundane forums.. gaming ones spring to mind though I'm not a gamer so can't speak from experience.

PS Back after a year absence - that is to say mining in general - been on slush since day dot after solo mining was no longer an option and don't intend to change (though I might bugger off for several months at a time Wink  ) Great to be back!! cheers.

Thanks Billbags. I had seen what Slush said at the start of the Slush's Pool thread, but you've really filled in all the blanks. I would have preferred a strategy that didn't punish everybody for the actions of a few, but if the forum had got out of control, I can understand why Slush did it.  Perhaps it's time for him to revisit it and at least post details of updates here.  He doesn't have to reply to them.  Just my tuppence worth.

It appears a few changes have been made to web interface such as new block found there is no processing appearing to show that blocks potential reward in statistics?Huh? While the new block has begun
this is a little disconcerting as it doesn't show up  it makes it appear we lost the work for the previous 10 hour block I'm sure it will show up but the 5-20 minutes of processing without it showing will be a visual ugg.....and as this is the first block completed since web changes we wont know what will show until 15 minutes or so have passed I hope they did not make changes to the way the statistics page works Cool
So they just removed the processing part block appears after calculations are made!!...not sure why they did this but once again with no updates as to when things are scheduled to roll out it is a little off putting to see changes aka. passwords no processing etc. when you are used to a certain format. Roll Eyes

I agree, it is disconcerting now that the newly found block just vanishes (temporarily), whereas it used to say 'Processing...", so you knew what was there.  Just watched it happen with the latest one.  Much preferred it how it was before.

This forum is the only Social Media interaction I have with people online. I made the decision early on in the "My Space" and "Facebook" days to live my life free from most mainstream social media, I don't have anything against it, although I do believe a "person" makes good decisions but a "group of people" can often make bad ones(group mentality). There are good sections of this forum and bad sections of this forum. I'm very conservative and "anti-political correct" and I question everything in life - people, media, government and church and try to do unbiased factual research, not just what everyone else is thinking/saying/feeling without research, to reach my beliefs on those four subjects. I'm not against those things I'm just careful about the mass production for mass consumption type mentality thats evolved in this country. I have traveled and lived all over the world when I was in the military and have experienced a lot of cultures, people and governments so I assume that's why I'm this way. My biggest problem from not using social media is learning what's "accepted" as normal by the "group mentality" that's currently evolved in a specific thread. I think I may come off as rude or biased most of the time online, I do believe and accept that everyone is entitled to their own opinions and views on life and I'm actually a very happy and free spirited person In everyday life, I just come off as a grouch online.

SLUSH is reporting they won 322930 & 322947, but BLOCKCHAIN is reporting that 322930 went to BTC Guild and 322947 went to AntPool.

^ must have been close and checking the timestamps. Blockchain.info isn't the blockchain, so let's hope they are wrong. Things like this is what those 100 confirmations are all about. I hope it goes our way for at least one if not both.

This is sort is sort if off topic.    (Slush seems to have been doing a bit bad lately since diff rise)

I'm sellingn some of my Antminer s1s to upgrade to s3s.   I'm not 100% on the whole how the shipping works.


Butm willing to sell $130 CAD ea miner.

Or 4 miners for $90 CAD EA 1 PSU for every 2 miners bought.

I'll also throw in a free 2gh/s USB miner for free.


I accept PayPal or payment by bitcoin.

Just send me a mssg if your interested.



I'm not reall dedicated to the s3 but all I need is a miner a bit more powerful than the s1.   

Offers???
