I've been mining on BTC guild at around 2 GHash/s.  I notice I have many many more accepted shares than shares receiving payments. My payout has been around 0.01 in less than a day and I understand that's about average but doesn't explain what's going on.

Can someone clarify this?

Thanks.

There's 3 stages to PPLNS on BTC Guild.

1) The current shift.  This is an incomplete shift, and no payments are being made on shares for that shift yet.
2) Open shifts.  Once the current shift hits the N value (currently 225,000,000 shares), it is completed and goes on top of the open shift list.  These shares now start receiving payments any time a block is solved until the shift is closed.
3) Closed shifts.  Open shifts receive payments until 10 new shifts have completed.  Once they are no longer in the 10 most recent shifts, they are closed and no longer receive payments.

The total life cycle is about 40 minutes per shift with the current pool speed and N value.  So if you submit an accepted share at the very start of a shift, it takes about 40 minutes before it will start taking payments.  It then gets paid for approximately 400 minutes.  Total timespan is ~7.5 hours.  What this means is if you STOP mining, you will continue to get paid for ~7.5 hours even though you're no longer submitting shares.

Thank you for taking the time to answer however, I understand all you have said.

On my Active Worker Summary, however, it shows 34846 shares accepted yet under PPLNS Details it shows only 11,290 receiving payment.  Also, my BFGMiner shows many more than 11,290 shares accepted.

I'm not necessarily unhappy with the payout but am wondering why the difference.

Go to PPLNS stats and add up the shares on closed shifts.  The PPLNS Summary only shows you shares *currently* getting paid (or in the current shift).  Once they're done getting paid, they're not shown in the PPLNS Summary on the dashboard.

If you still can't figure it out, send me a PM with your username on the pool.

If my hash rate is the same as it has been since the start of this difficulty, what would account from my 24 hour earnings dropping in half?  I was earning about 7% per 24 hours, now I am around 3%.  I am hashing at 410 Gh/s.  Thanks.

Reviving a 6 month old thread for an unrelated question aside:


Luck has been terrible the last 3 days.  It's clearly visible at the bottom of the PPLNS stats page.  Not sure what the heck your 7% and 3% are supposed to mean though.  Earnings don't get measured in % per 24h.
