I wanted to help out one of my favorite pools so I made mine 5% my tiny 1.2Gh/s should still do a little good to help keep this pool up and running.

Thanks, that is much appreciated!

We have a few users donating a lot and many users donating zero. That's why we're moving to a 1% fee. That will be more fair and you won't have to carry the users who don't donate.

Doc,

I do not want  mess up with your decision about donations and fees. My feeling is the everyone shall donate. As you know there is no free lunch. And you work too much to make us happy.  A starting minimum donation of 0.5% for everyone shall be fare. Who does not like it is free to go. You deserve more than that but it will be small portion at least. And it will be paid of from NMC income. Guys with 0.5% donation will still earn about 1.5% on top from NMC income


Best

Please help the Led Boy aka Bicknellski to make us a nice Christmas led tree and pay WASP membership fee here:

I was on 2.5% BTC /50% NMC donation but have reduced that to get ready for the new fee structure. I hope all members take the time to go in to the member section and change their rates if they have not been there at all. If the fee have to be charged it certainlt indicates I haven't done enough and many other need to help to keep Bitminter at the top of pool choices.

No kidding. First we had a block that took 1 second, then one that took 10 hours. Lady luck is teaching variance 101 right here. Wink

I have some important BTC things to do first. Then I will have a look at LTC. I may add it.

Right, this seems pretty dead on. Try turning off your bitcoind (if you're on 0.8.1 anyway, which by your post I'm assuming that's your problem) when the lag seems pretty bad to see if it goes away like we did. We also realized that this started happening about the same time we upgraded to 0.8.1. Only thing is that your lag stops when you stop mining?

Well, turns out that mining had nothing to do with it...Just a coincidence that led me to believe so.  Closing the 0.8.0 client makes my high latency go away almost instantly.

Thanks so much to Doc and farfie for bringing up this topic.  The high latency was driving me nuts when gaming!

Just started mining on bitminter. Switched over from btcguild. Doing well so far.

Looking forward to LTC support being added.

I would have to say lite coin support would be very helpful to many of us. My 69Gh in asics is due July or Aug. 

Having litecoin would help a lot

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Litecoin in my view is only a liability for bitminter. Also it's the botnet currency of choise : (

   Like white phantom I would want to know why you do not like litecoins or terra coins.

 I have a 7000 usd gpu farm pushing 8.7Gh soon to be outdated gear for  my mining. 

   Both lite coins and terra coins are restrictive to  asics and welcome gpus.   Yeah I have asics on order but I am waiting like many others. Having a lite coin or terra coin option for my gpus would be nice.  I have been a top 50 miner with bit miner for 8 months I mine with bitminter alone and have always donated 2 to 4 %  At one time I gave 98 % of my Name coins to help this pool.   

 Having the  litecoin/ terracoin setup  will help a lot of the gpu miners that have supported  the good Doctor H. and his pool. 

 To be honest My programming skills are a C  or C+ at best  so an easy setup to mine lite or terra coins will have importance to me.  One more thing  AMD would have a vested interest in litecoin and or terracoin doing well as it would help their sales of gpus.

In this threads I wrote a few replies.

I use this calculator and this setup will net me 6 bucks a day at todays price of 112 a coin along todays
difficulty of 8,900,000. While this does not seem like a lot 180 a month means this 4 card setup would reach payout in about 5 or 6 months. I know difficulty is rising but litecoins and TRC are setup as
non-Asic or gpu only. This means switching to litecoins will allow you to mine with gpus for a few more years.
Most of us do not want a 8 pc / 16 gpu garage like I have right now, but I am making 1000 a month the last 2 months. So this may stay around for a while.

As I said in my earlier post AMD would do well to buy bitcoins to keep the price up. The entire worth of bitcoins is about 1.2 billion maybe 1.4 billiion around 11.5 million coins at about 110 usd. So if AMD buys coins to keep the price up it is a low cost way to entice people into amd gpus. If AMD were to buy 10,000 coins at 150 usd that would be 1.5 million dollars if the price rose to 160-170 due to this AMD would have a great 'commercial' to entice people to switch to bit coins. If Amd then paid a developer (Maybe a million) to setup a quality pool to make an easy litecoin and Terracoin pool for dummies much like www.bitminter.com is an easy pool for bitcoins > They would further enhance the value of their gpus once ASICS take over bitcoin mining.

Hey AMD read this and do it. It certainly would help boost your gpu sales.

While some may laugh this is a sound low cost plan for AMD to boost sales. So AMD if you try it and it works you can send me a check for boosting your sales ! Just kidding. I will make out just fine if you do it my idea as I will mine litecoins, Terra Coins."

If you could tell me why the above is 'bad' for bitminter please explain your position,,

 Thank you phil

I certainly don't see the problem with LTC support at BitMinter.  I think it's a fantastic idea.  However, I'm afraid TRC is not ASIC proof in the least.  Avalons have already been used for TRC once or twice, causing a lot of complaints among its mining community.  I'm just speaking from my experience listening to traders in the BTC-e trollbox who complained about their incredibly slow confirmations (like 2-3 hours for one) for about a week.  Here's a thread that discusses ASIC being a threat to TRC:
