I haven't been paid out either. It looks true that no one has been paid in 3 blocks. Can you please explain this and let us know when you are going to pay out to everyone?

How are brand new 2 minute-old accounts able to immediately post in this thread? heh.

I'll bite, and the for last time.  (Obvious duplicate account is obvious).

As I already explained in my previous post, the coinbaser (which handles automatic payouts) has been on and offline during the overhaul.  I will get everyone paid in a manual payout, like I always do and always have, when the overhaul and time permits.

If you have actual concerns about me actually doing the manual payout, simply mine elsewhere.  I'm pretty sure my track record on this stands on its own.  Right now the payout queue is at something like ~55 BTC (actually owed by the pool, payout queue page includes estimates for the next block).  During previous upgrades when the pool had much more of the network's hash rate I've done manual payouts over a relatively short periods totaling *thousands* of BTC, when they were worth more on the market even.  I find it kind of amusing and offensive that anyone would question my motives at this point.

Again, actual concerns, open a ticket.

When I read that post it just scared me is all. This is my first time posting because I never wanted to before. I am not making accusations and I didn't mean to come across like that.
You have to admit its scary to read that with no idea whats going on.

You have to admit that a 2-minute old forum account posting in my thread here *immediately* after banning another relatively new account that's trying to stir up trouble (where there is none)... He went offline, your account was made, and continued the topic (albeit much more politely than the deleted posts, thanks)... is just a bit suspicious.  No one really posts in this thread much anymore as it is, so... yeah.

Anyway, all I see here is someone on the internet trying to cause trouble for no apparent reason.  The user opened no support tickets, sent no emails, nothing... yet feels the need to try and spread nonsense here publicly... to which I say simply, it is the internet... and I can't really expect much better, unfortunately.

I've been mining on this pool for a while and these concerns came up for me as well when I saw myself slipping in the queue and not really understanding why but as time went on I've started to grasp it more and the one thing that I have found to be true is that I always get paid what is owed to me -- even if sometimes it does take a bit.  I've started to understand this manual payout thing a bit more and it fits with what I've seen....  it sometimes seems like I'm slipping in the queue but then all of a sudden at one shot everyone (or nearly everyone) in the queue gets paid in one shot which I've come to understand is the manual payout thing.

One of the most important things that I've learned in looking at myself and my own attitudes is that the saying that the customer who pays the least always complains the most and that kind of seems to fit the bill here in the inverse....  It took me a while to fully grasp that my Antminer S5 is a tiny tiny tiny tiny drop in the bucket.... I always knew it wasn't much but I didn't really understand how little....  I don't do this for profits but more of something to play with so it hasn't hurt me to find that I'm not going to turn a profit but people who are buying a $300 miner expecting to get rich are going to be sorely let down no matter which pool they join.... and while some of those facts might become clearer faster on a small pool such as this even if it feels like you're making more somewhere else, you really aren't.  The other thing that small time miners have to realize is that we *NEED* the miners that appear to be hogging all of the payouts because our little miners aren't going to get anything if we are on our own.....  even if a huge miner shows up on the pool and starts hogging the automatic payouts they are helping us find blocks which is the only way ANYONE in the pool is going to get paid.

I'm not an expert at all... far from it.... but these are things that I've started to grasp....  I thank wizkid for all of his work and I haven't found ANY reason not to trust him.  The fact that he is still working on this pool with as small as it's become tells me, in it's self, that he is doing it for the love of it and not the money or glory which is exactly the person I would trust more.

Thanks for that.  Yeah, I think it's pretty obvious that I've definitely not been here for the money or glory, that's for sure.  While the volunteer nature of my work here does tend to result in some delays with upgrades and sometimes getting payouts done, they always do get done.  And really, not remotely for my own benefit since it takes well in excess of of currently received donations to operate the pool (servers/hosting) and I personally don't mine much anymore.  I think all of this definitely tends to get lost on some people, so it's reassuring when people recognize it.

I get at a minimum a half-dozen messages/tickets/etc per week from someone who was basically scammed into buying mining hardware expecting a huge return, then trying to blame me/the pool because their 5 Gh/s BFL Jalapeno isn't earning them $500/day worth of bitcoin.  Some remain angry and continue to just believe that I must be cheating them somehow... to the point where one guy attempted to DDoS the pool in retaliation for the pool not paying him like 1 BTC/day for his 20Gh/sec.  Others accept reality.  Some in between.  One guy linked me to a bitcoin mining profitability calculator that utilized a network difficulty from 2013, and MtGox's peak BTC/USD price..... which of course makes a few GH/s device look like a bargain at a few hundred bucks.  The whole, "if it looks too good to be true" adage seems to apply for sure.  Some even get conned or misinformed into running CPU or GPU miners, to which I have to tell them they'll never earn a penny.  But in all cases, I always seem to be the bearer of bad news... and some people tend to still want to shoot the messenger.

And while generally I encourage people to recommend the pool, I wish these unscrupulous sellers would not.  "I've got this magic device that can earn you hundreds of dollars per day!  On sale now for only $500!"  "So, why do you just run it yourself?"  I'd probably find the excuses amusing.

While I feel bad for these people, especially those who have been scammed out of money when they bought their hardware, there's nothing I can do about it.  I had a back and forth with one gentleman who was scammed into buying some hardware who genuinely expected for me to just pay him what he was told he would earn by the hardware seller (which was probably 100,000x more than he would actually earn) anyway to "make things right"... which simply is not mine nor the pool's responsibility.

Finished some code updates related to the coinbaser.  Will try to get a manual payout done shortly after this block we just found confirms, then get the normal coinbase payouts back online.

Apologies. I got held up with some emergency work unrelated to the pool. 

I just did a partial manual payout emptying one of the offline wallets which caught up the bulk of the queue in txn a687d9cf6e5b3591846c31b781af37a225da0b496a7f9ab79957f81ecdff73af.

The remainder of the queue is in another offline wallet, which I'll work on putting towards a followup manual payout probably tomorrow.

It's the way of the world Wizkid. instant gratification, a block has been found, I have hit three bells on the slot machine, pay me now or I will throw a tantrum. Keep plugging away, I for one am very thankful for the job that you do!

It is also good to see the pool luck starting to return Smiley

Seems in my haste to get the coinbaser back online I missed a couple of minor things which triggered a fail-safe.  Er.

I'll get another manual payout done shortly.

I finally had to shut down my miners.   Just wanted to say thank you for the 3+ years.   Your service was amazing and I much appreciate it.   For the past year I've been mining into two wallets for my kids who are extremely young at the moment.  Hopefully BTC will continue to thrive and I can explain to them where the coins came from and how they were generated "back in the day".

Thanks again!!!

This is explained over and over and over in this thread.  If you wish, you can read some of the history and have your answer sooner, and be confident that things do work out.

I try to be respectful and informed.
