I may be overthinking the payout method of the pool, I started mining yesterday and it seemed fairly straight forward but with bad luck it does not anymore. 
To make it simple, if I am mining with 1% of the pool hash rate , will I get 1% of the block?  I am asking because with Capped Pay per share it seems as though it is not really a PPS pool unless the pool luck is at close to 100% and as a miner I would get paid less than I would if I mined straight PPS or PPLNS.

I must admit I am a kano.is guy but I am having some electrical work done and using the opportunity to try out other pools.  I just cannot see how this is as profitable as others, not to mention if something happen to the pool operator he could have a very nice payday.

I am not here to crap on the thread but ask questions about the best place to use my hardware (for my protection).

Thanks in advance.

Hello I was mining on this pool and some other pools and one thing i noticed about this pool was that when I had around 39 terahash mining here for a week and then brought it down to around 4 terahash for the day that it was showing my estimated total pay out to be .979 bitcoins and at the  the estimated changes keeps on becoming negative %. And I was leaving the 4+ terahash mining to try to get up to 1 bitcoin by the end of the day because i had estimated change at .18% around there so i figure it will eventually be 1 bitcoin leaving 4+terahash mining. But to my surprise the estimated negative % changes my .979 bitcoins to now .91    
the heck is going on does anyone know why bitcoins are being taken away from my payout, This morning .979  now .91 just by reducing 39+t/h to 4+t/h

right now its at estimated payout .9146728
watch by morning its gonna be less
hope not

Relax, it's a failsafe. It just means that Wizkid will have to do a manual payout, which he does fairly regularly. The failsafe settings are pretty far to the right of paranoid, which is a good thing in this business.

So payout will be manual to miners soon after payout confirms?

I know that that is a failsafe. But the delay with a manual payout worries me.

The last manual payout happened almost a month ago (2015-12-16 09:25:58 - https://blockchain.info/tx/b7353a03c17bb9ae70b6883e0a9f5959cb6a4cf06c3558f468d37f3c6584b12c).
The next failsafe block also happend almost a month ago (2015-12-18 07:15:45 - http://eligius.st/~wizkid057/newstats/blockinfo.php/000000000000000002c29b6a74a88fed6d8f5fb316fa587c608ce3c121d1a314).

Also 4 BTC were spent from Eligius wallet for unknown reasons on 2016-01-06 20:58:30 (https://blockchain.info/tx/a4e7d4deee2208ed5caae43697793008256faf546855a65c838dd0f8bf6203e3).

Looks like that 4.5 BTC was 100% funneled into a wallet that has had over 19k BTC pass through, and is sitting with 4,200 BTC in it.  Odd.

Not odd, the wallet you're referring to is BitPay. Every BitPay account is linked to it.

Well there you go!  Thanks Smiley  Never meant to imply that anything nefarious was taking place, wizkid is on the up an up.  We have lots of hash and we love it, here; bad luck periods notwithstanding.

The 4.5 might have been a portion of donations or whatnot being cashed in for server fees or other AP who do not accept bitcoin, but that's even more speculation. Wink

If everyone in the pool donates what we do (which is unlikely) then 4 coins is ~2 weeks donations, I wager that it's way less than that and that on average the donations aren't a third of what I'm calculating, so that may have been a month or more payment for servers, bandwidth, etc...

Perhaps some anti-terrorism / extortion measures put into place to protect the pool!

KNCMiner have announced they will start mining bitcoin classic blocks: https://forum.bitcoin.com/bitcoin-discussion/an-open-letter-from-sam-cole-ceo-of-knc-miner-t4868.html

What is Eligius' take on this? If I remember correctly wizkid was adamantly against hard forks some time ago, have this changed? Even if not, if by any chance a block version voting to hard fork becomes the majority and the hard fork triggers, Eligius will jump to the most popular chain, right?

simply changing code to run classic? Who will buy bitcoin that will be mined essentially as an altcoin, unless majority coalesces, but then it is the same bitcoin with another name. Clearly, mining majority preferred core so far.

Is KnCMiner done with all the lawsuits against them yet ? They might want to focus on actually delivering the hardware they sell, or properly compensating the customers who invested and got nothing, before drumming their support for some fork.

The blocks to the offline wallet issue is one I've been working on a bit.  A few new changes seem to have broken a couple of things and had Eligius mining "empty" blocks a little more often then it should have been.  However, without the changes it would have been delayed on block changes completely, so, there's that.  Working on a solution and have it mostly implemented.

For background, I've setup the pool so that if it can't get a block template from one of several pool bitcoind's in a reasonable time, it will use the info it has to build a block on top of a validated previous block from one of about a dozen other bitcoinds that I have setup all over the place as part of my little private Eligius block relay network.  This way, even if something lags out the core bitcoind's used for templates, the pool isn't behind the network and miners don't lose out.  In fact, it keeps Eligius pretty quick on block changes.

In the interest of transparency, and I have noted this before, most of the pool donations end up in the same offline wallet as the one I use to do manual payouts.  The 4.5 BTC was the sum of those over some extended period, heading to a Bitpay invoice payment to our datacenter (kudos to them for accepting bitcoin payments from us, although they haven't made this a public thing yet).  The wallet software just mixes and matches coins to make a sensible transaction.  In this case it found input coins that added up to make it so no change address was required, which is generally a good thing.  Local accounting on the client in this case doesn't affect the Eligius cold wallet funds, so it doesn't really matter in the end.  I usually try to include the payments to the datacenter with the manual payouts, but they had asked me about it so I quickly knocked that out. 

Also to note, as of right now Eligius receives in donations roughly 0.0027 BTC per block, as a sum of everyone with a donation amount set.  Not much, but better than nothing.  The vast majority of donations are just people sending donations directly or mining under fun usernames that aren't bitcoin addresses.  My recent favorite is "WIZKID_YOU_WANKER_HERES_SOME_DOUGH" where they mined about 0.5 BTC worth of shares under that username.  Thanks, and thanks to everyone who does donate or has donated!

I wanted to try and sort out the little race condition that was causing the pool to mine more fail-safe blocks than it should be before doing a manual payout, but I hadn't been able to correct it completely and the queue was getting too large so I emptied the one offline wallet (the one with the 1ChAnge type address and the donations) into a manual payout to keep the queue low in the meantime.  393,375 is just about confirmed, so I'm going to do that again shortly now that I think I've got it mostly worked out.

I haven't reviewed the whole Bitcoin-Classic thing in detail just yet, however at first glance it looks like another Bitcoin XT type nonsense cooked up under a new name.  I'll investigate further later.  In the meantime, let's keep altcoin talk elsewhere.  Feel free to come to #eligius on Freenode if you like.

Not sure what estimate you're looking at.  No where on any Eligius page is there an estimate to when you will receive a payout, since Eligius pays out when blocks are found.

The time in the payout queue the age of your balance, not an estimated time to payout.

Deleted multiple posts about bitcoin forks (from the same person who kept re-posting).  As mentioned, if you want to discuss such things come to #eligius on Freenode.  The topic is not permitted here.

Edit: Deleted additional posts that also have nothing to do with this thread (asking me why I've deleted posts when I've clearly explained).

Edit: This person continues to post, and my script continues to delete them upon notification.  This poster is banned from this thread until further notice.

Both were found using work given from before GBT returned a valid template. Fast successive blocks. These two were actually pretty normal. I explained others in a recent post.
