I'm going to hold on a bit longer before moving my hashing power to another pool.  Kinda ride out this turn of luck we have suddenly seen on Slush.  It can't be a coincidence that the day them fix the invalid blocks (supposedly fixed) that the luck turns totally around as well.  Had to be more going wrong behind the scenes than they are letting on.  Don't ya think??

So what are you saying he as ripping us off?
[/quote

No, I'm not saying that.  But I do find it rather odd that the pool was not only having way too many invalid blocks but also the pool luck was sinking like a rock.  They supposedly fix the invalid issue and at the same time the pools luck does a complete 180.  I'm by no means a mining expert so I don't know if the reason for invalid blocks was also tanking our luck however I do know Slush does not report luck correctly when it comes to invalid blocks.  The pool luck should have been much lower if he was.  

I think the question as to whether or not he has been ripping us off should be answered by someone with a lot more mining knowledge then I.

EDIT:  However, case in point while having issues with invalid blocks we were seeing 4-6 hour rounds.  Now with the with the fix the rounds have been much much shorter except for the 4 hour one today which happens to be in invalid block (379375).  As a rule of thumb I don't believe in coincidences.  Don't get me wrong, I'm complaining about the good luck we have had these last two days.

Now it appears that block 379780 which at the time of me writing this we have been mining for 48 minutes was already mined by ant pool 22 minutes ago. This is a horrible delay on Slush's part, he needs to get this crap figured out quickly.

Shouldn't a mod (-ck?) adjust this thread's title? The pool has been at ~32000TH/s for quite a while, now. 9000TH/s is old news.

That's one way to shut me up.....


I guess I should work on my own Karma.


Moving my hash on the best day after 5 days of bad luck.... yeah that hurt.

Slush is really like an ex-girlfriend. The relation of Love/Hate is too close to be sustainable.

I'm sure that hurt a bit but the 2 invalid blocks almost back to back shows Slush hasn't fixed anything yet.

Very disappointed, going to start looking for another pool to devote my hash's tomorrow.

Recent Orphaned Blocks Explanation 2 hours, 29 minutes
 
Orphaned blocks are natural part of Bitcoin network. Therefore, our recent orphan rate was probably - to a certain extent - a random noise. Since it has been higher than usual in the past few days, we have conducted a deep analysis of our internal infrastructure and made some adjustment.

Firstly, we have upgraded to Bitcoind 0.11.1 which definitely improved our mempool performance. However, the remaining problem was still in propagation of our blocks into the bitcoin network. Eventhough Slush Pool has been using the fast block relay network (http://bitcoinrelaynetwork.org/) for over a year now, thorough analysis of block propagation times showed that our connections to the fast block relay network were not working properly in the last few weeks.

This connectivity issue, which affected all 9 bitcoin nodes that we currently operate, has been fixed with the help from Matt Corallo - the author of the fast block relay network. In addition, we have updated the relay network client to the latest version.

Since we have not experienced any orphaned block (invalid in Slush Pool terminology) in the last 2 days (or more than 30 consecutive blocks) we suppose the issue has been fixed. Moreover the block propagation times are now being carefully monitored and >we believe such increased attention will lead to stable validation in the future.

Finally we believe, the fast block relay network provides a very robust solution to this issue for all miners and mining pools.

Ending note:

Not only exchanges and wallets have been affected by persisting spam attack. Since pools depend on quick propagation times among Bitcoin network nodes, they were affected as well.

A very good analysis regarding this topic has been written and published on following website by Organ Ofcorti: http://organofcorti.blogspot.cz/2015/10/october-18th-2015-mining-pool-statistics_21.htm

Although he covered a few selected pools in his analysis there are other big players who were not analyzed and had higher rate of orphaned blocks in the weeks before as well. Therefore, it is safe to guess that the whole network was and is being affected to much higher extent.

As to why the current spam attack impacts orphan rates, we would like to point attention of our technically skilled miners to following statistics as well: http://bitcoinrelaynetwork.org/stats.html

It seems like the more folks talk about leaving, the bigger the pool hash rate gets...

How does the hash rate keep climbing - yet the success rate keeps plummeting?

Lot of folk wasting a lot of electricity here..............

Maybe slush himself added some additional hashing power to the pool in order to increase the pools success rate?!?

But I pulled all of my hashing power out of Slush a couple of hours ago and have it now pointed at BTCC Pool in China.  Going to give them a couple of days and see how I like that pool.

Do BTCChina payout the same way Slush does?

[/quote]

I'm not interlay sure how they derive a payout but from what I've read on their site they pay twice a day on balances over .001 (not .01 like slush).  It is also a PPS (Pay Per Share) system.
I'm going to compare my payouts over the next two or so days to what I was averaging with Slush and see how it works out.  I know BTCC Pool usually averages twice the number of blocks found each day.
