Pool luck is just that and, theoretically, not influenced by hash speeds / rates.
Call it what you want, it's still just math.  There is no such thing as "pool luck", in fact there's no such thing as "luck" at all, it's something humans made up.  A pool may "seem lucky" from time to time, but that's just math at work.  You can check all the bitcoin code and you won't find luck in there anywhere, but you will find lots of math.


Maths may be the basis of the blockchain / algorithm, but luck decides determines who finds (and reports to the blockchain) "the block" first.
Nope, no luck in play there either.  Chance determines who reports first.  You may call the finder "lucky", but luck had nothing to do with it (since it doesn't exist).
There is no such thing as "pool luck" ....  Chance (and not luck) determines who reports first ...... OK, you win!

Is this still a good pool ?
It continues to payout.

It has a community that helps develop it.

So in my opinion yes it is a good pool.

Of course!  The word "chance" has gambling connotations, while the word "luck" is loaded with superstitious undertones :-)  The only difference comes from the perspective of the person you ask.

The generic term, the mathematical term, is probability.  I guess the guy who thinks payout from different pools on different days are controlled by "chance" had a dad who played the ponies.  While the guy who calls it "luck" had a mom who believed her horoscope, threw salt over her shoulder and knocked on wood for "good luck".

My mom was an engineer -- I call it probability. 

thanks,

-dave

who *did* have step dad who played the ponies, and a grandmother who pitched salt -- so don't go getting all offended, now Smiley

This is strange. Been on this pool with almost a whole week with 7TH and only getting .05 return? All stats look fine. I would get at least .06 on Ghash. Is luck that bad now here? First time trying this pool out and my earnings have just dropped considerably.

Slush was the first pool I mined on a couple of years ago. I was surprised to see I had mined so much on it:

 17.3981 BTC
All Times Reward


Looked back and was making .50+ BTC a day running those USB ASIC miners...awww those were the days  Cool

More semantics than anything of substance. Luck is the lay man's term for probability and has nothing to do with superstition. And chance, well, that's just luck!

Ahh the good old days... lol Smiley.  It really shows just how fast the whole Bitcoin phenomenon has grown.  You want to make 0.5BTC a day mining now, you'd need about 46.5TH/s!

My first miners were 5 Ant U2 sticks... that I've still got running today (on ck.'s solo pool).  Those were almost immediately followed by an S1... and then about a week later another S1... lol.  My very first mining payout was from p2pool almost exactly a year ago.

Semantics or not, some of us prefer to use technically correct terms for things.

Who's stopping you from saying what you prefer, semantically insubstantial though it may be? Just don't expect the rest of us to be in the same boat as you.

Dashboard is down but the miner I use on Slush's has a widely variable fan and is still humming along as though it's mining. I didn't call it's panel up yet to verify but I will if they're out for more than an hour.
