ya i was wondering why i didn't get any payouts for a while on JPC..
i tend to be a pretty slow miner in general on all pools but i try and balance my pay out requests so it doesn't happen to much.
what i suggest is maybe do what Ipominer does and that is set a minimum pay out amount depending on how hard the coin is to mine.
usually IPOminer has a 10 coin minimum and if you have less than that and you do a manual pay out a box pops up
that asks you if you want to pay a small fee for doing a small transaction and sometimes i say yes but if i can i try and wait..
the manual too small request amount is not too much i think so it doesn't bother me although they have no fee's i think.
For example 24 hrs ago i did this with DarkCoin and i decided to wait because i had a super small amount.
you need to be competitive.. Ipominer is growing and doing it with almost no fee's and they are smooth sailing lol
i hope you can get payments figured out soon.. having your coins frozen with an excuse will wear peoples patience thin.
point being is you don't need to jack up fee's on ALL users ..code your site to make the slow miners asking for the small pay-out to foot the bill !
that way you can still have lower fee's and be a competitive pool attracting users with low general fee's AND lower your network TX activity.
Jackpotcoin pool stucked payout for a while.
MPOS, the pool website opensource is great but stops time to time to ensure the pool operator to check if it's alright.
Mostly it wasn't big problem, just telling me there was orphan block and some data was conflicted each other.
I noticed this on my mobile phone but couldn't solve it immediately because I was attending friend's wedding. Sorry for late fix.
I am considering about the tx fee. Actually I can't make tx fee as zero since it's the bitcoin and altcoin's base principal.
As tx fee is dynamic, it is dependent on p2p network status. If there's not much transactions on that time,
coins may be sent by low fee but if there's full of transactions, tx fee must be larger.
Actually my pool which is MPOS opensource based, also has the function you said.
You can set minimum auto payout coins and also you can payout manually for any amount of coins you earned.
You can set this option on Edit Account page.
Maybe I understood wrongly.
I'm considering zero tx fee for VIP members who participated for a long time on our pool.
Their tx fee is on our pool, and we will pay to p2p network for it then. Well it's just thinking, not sure yet.
Any suggestions are welcomed.
