Thought the pool was going to be really good and something I could be proud of, but I guess I need to do something else.
it still can be
just consider this is one of those nasty speedhumps they seem to put along every road nowadays.. unpleasant.. slows you down.. but you can soon get back on track
once you have had some time to rest and come to terms with whats happened, try contacting the miners via email/here as im sure most will happily return any wrongly awarded funds
presumably the database recorded the amount of shares everyone put into the glitchy blocks so its not impossible to trace records and work out who should have got what, and who got more than they should have etc
most importantly you can figure out how much they should pay back (if they are honest folk...)
dont lose hope, you arent the only one who wants this pool to succeed
