Slush:

If you get an opportunity, there are two requests for additional details on the website.
1: Can a date/time localization be added?
2: In the statistics page, can an additional field be populated showing the number of shares submitted for past blocks?

Thank you

CrunchyFerrett

I needed some break from work on backends, so today I launched multilanguage support for website. Not all texts are currently translated, especially some emails, but I'll fix it during the time. Currently English, German, Russian and Czech translations are available. If you want pool site in your language and you want help me with it, let me know :-). I'm especially looking for some French or Spanish native speaker...

1: Can a date/time localization be added?

Yes, it's already on my list. However it will come after DGM.

Quote
2: In the statistics page, can an additional field be populated showing the number of shares submitted for past blocks?

Yes, this is part of DGM update which is planned in next days.

What does "high" mean? Is you miner connected to LP port? What miner do you use? Please post me a PM.

Edit: I re-checked LP mechanism and everything seems fine. Also all my rigs connected on the pool have pretty low stale ratio (~0.15%).

And if you start using facebook for updates and news, I would like to follow the pool on twitter. Maybe it is possible to open an account there as well. Just a wish  Smiley

Not everyone has (or wants, or is going to set up) Facebook and/or Twitter accounts.

The main source of news for the pool should always be either [1] the pool website itself; or [2] this forum. Sure, FB and Ttr info can be added as a secondary source, but should never marginalize the main ones.

Keep calm. FB is probably just an extra means of information and a little bit of promotion. I think it's a good idea.

I'm planning to add some facebook widget instead of current news bar on the left side, so even people without a FB profile will see major news. I agree that it's necessary to see important updates directly on the website.

I picked FB, because almost everybody have or can have an account, and it is probably to easiest way for the people to give me the feedback. Many people also have problems writing here because of rules for newcomers. Generally I think FB is pretty good tool for building a community, but of course you don't need to register on FB to use the pool :-).

Have any of you miners at slush noticed a significant decrease in BTC reward in the last day?

Or is this due to pool hoppers?

I hope it gets figured out. I don't want to jump to another pool either, as waiting for the blocks to be confirmed takes nearly 4 days on slush's.

Slush's rewards confirm after 100 blocks, which is less than 24 hours.  Where are you getting 4 days from?

Looking at recent blocks, you can see quite a few 4/5 hour blocks, which would mean lower payouts.  Slush is score based, which means your rewards will always vary based on the pool's luck.  30% less payout in a 24-48 hour period is very possible with bad luck, especially if you're comparing it to a few days that had good luck which makes the difference more exaggerated.

Good or bad luck matters? From what I seen, there are blocks that take the same time to find, but 30% less payout?

I haven't had the same issue.

But you also have to watch the total pool hashrate.  As the total goes up, your reward for a block will go down.

For example I might get an average of about .1 btc per round when the total pool hashrate is around 1100 ghash, but when it goes up to 1400ghash, my average per round will go down to between .08 and .09 btc.  The plus side to this is as the total pool hashrate goes up, the pool luck tends to go up and we have more blocks found.  So your total reward will tend to even out.

:EDIT:  SIDE NOTE - (not related to what I said above, but something to keep in mind) The length of the round only matters in rounds generally under ten minutes.  Normal miners will make less in these rounds.  That is a result of pool hoppers, and Slush is working on fixing that.

Luck matters hugely. It's why people will pay a 10% fee for Pay Per Share. 30% up or down in one day is not unusual. It's why I started DeepBit Miner Earnings Insurance. If enough miners here want the same thing I'll provide it.

The basic idea is that you buy bonds which pay you back in proportion to the round shares here. That way if the pool is unlucky you end up with more. If the pool is lucky you get less, but then your mining did well. It works similar to a PPS payout method, and would enable you to remain here but not be bothered by variance.

A second reason for the variance in your payout is the score method itself, which can lead to greater or lesser payouts than you'd expect.

I think you're getting a bit mixed up here. If the total hashrate goes up, everyone gets paid less since there are more miners. But this isn't pool hopping. If the hashrate stays high and the strategic miners don't leave, you'll still end up with proportionally less because it's being divided by more miners.

If you read carefully, that is basically exactly what I said.

At the end I added a side note about short rounds.  Short rounds payout less because pool hoppers are taking more than their fare share.  Maybe I should have been more clear?
