In the PPLNS model, if N=250,000, what happens when it is a new pool, before the pool reaches N shares?

I'm mining in a new litecoin pool. There are currently ~13,000 completed shares. Until completed shares is greater than or equal to N, how are the coins distributed? Do all the coins get paid out to the pool?

To further this, I have completed 354 out of 13512 total shares. By my math, that puts me at 0.02% of the last N shares. Which means in a 50 coin block, I should net 1.3 LTC per block discovery. Yet I am seeing a fraction far smaller.

This is supposed to be a 0% fee pool.

Contact your pool op and tell them to adjust N - that's for BTC difficulty (I think). Which LTC isn't on.  Probably just a copy/paste error.

If N isn't reached, the pool acts just like a prop pool, as far as I know.

The pool in question is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=48688.0

It is stated on the pool's news page that N was changed from 1mil to 250k. So it's no typo. I currently represent 7% of the pools total hash rate, yet I'm getting fractions of a LTC per block.

I'm stuck in the newbie zone. Could someone address these (newbie?) issues in the pool thread?


Thanks!

Never mind... figured it would thanks to the pool op on irc. Keep me in the newbie zone!

My numbers were off, I was interpreting UNPAID share with total shares completed by the pool. All is good. I recommend this pool, I tried all the litecoin pools, sticking with this one.

How much LTC per hour are you making? and whats your hash rate? I am thinking about switching.

I'm on a i7-920, at ~10.5kh/s from 6 threads, getting ~5 LTC/hr.
