Set yourself up for Auto Payout for both BTC and NMC and the coins will come rolling in like clockwork. If you don't have or want a Namecoin wallet, many folks use an exchange which accepts mined coins. Not all exchanges do but www.btc-e.com does and it works fine for me.

Payouts from BTCGuild aren't mined coins in the sense of p2pool, where they come from the coinbase transaction.
You can payout from BTCGuild to Cryptsy, for example.

Good to know. Thanks for the clarification, there's always something to learn on this thread.

Much appreciated Smiley

Part of the getwork shutdown started today.  I've been cleaning out the old DNS entries that were used well over a year ago, mostly used in GUIMiner's completely outdated list of BTC Guild servers.  The following "recent" DNS entries were removed:

de.btcguild.com
mergedmining.btcguild.com
backup.btcguild.com


The getwork server shutdown is still planned for Friday of this week.  It will probably happen around 16:00 UTC.

So, um, sorry for not keeping up with the last 200 pages, but is there no more merged mining? Or is merged mining there by default now?

Yup! I just realized that I never put in my NMC wallet address... So is that all gone or if I put in the address now will it somehow magically reappear?

NMC accumulates whether you have a wallet set or not.  It's an option in your settings to have it display on the dashboard.  The NMC stats are pretty basic (earned vs paid).  NMC will be added to the CSV export on PPLNS soon, but no plans to add much detail for it on the site (too much clutter for something that is worth very little).

Rough math:  You make ~1.6 NMC per BTC you make.  1 NMC is worth 0.0043 BTC at the moment, so roughly 0.006 extra BTC from NMC.  So you're making ~0.6% extra income with merged mining at the moment.


EDIT/UPDATE:  The above math is wrong.  You get 3.2 NMC per BTC you make because NMC is 50 per block.  So the extra income is ~1.25%, not 0.6%.

Any plans to add extra merged mined coins to the pool?

No plans for that.  The other coins that allow merged mining aren't even worth a 0.1% bonus.

There's something unclear in the auto payout: you can set a 0.00 minimum but it seems to actually be 0.01.

BTC Guild was my backup pool, and so I only have 0.001 BTC there. Obviously it won't affect my life to lose that, but anyway it should be clearer to users.

so do a manual payout.  Tongue

More or less, the sum of them is about 0.2%.
It used to be better. Sad

If BTC Guild merged mined those coins, it would be worth less than 0.02%.  Basically the only reason those are adding 0.2% is because you get *so* many of them per Bitcoin mined, due to no pool giving a damn about them.  The same thing happened with NMC.  It *used* to be worth a decent amount.  Hell, Namecoin basically died as a result of it and had to implement a hard fork (merged mining) in order to revive the currency to stop Bitcoin miners from hopping onto it when profitable and leaving after the diff change when it became massively unprofitable.

You'll also note that the extra % gained from NMC took a massive dive recently, because at it's peak it was ~5-6% (not counting the first month or two of merged mining).  Then BTC Guild added merged mining to Stratum.  Then ASICMINER did.  Then GHash.io did.  Now the NMC difficulty is > 50% of the BTC difficulty, but the price is still roughly the same.


EDIT:  Thank you however for reminding me that NMC is still 50 coins per block.  So my 0.6% figure was half of what the actual extra income is since I was calculating it without factoring in the 50/block reward.

0.00 Auto Payout = Disabled.  0.01 is the minimum payout in all forms on BTC Guild and that is not expected to change unless there is a *massive* increase in the value of BTC.  Manual payouts will include all the extra satoshis as well to allow a complete balance clear, as long as it's at least 0.01.

Website isn't down, and it isn't under attack.  Cloudflare appears to be fucking up BIGTIME lately with ISP DNS providers.  People using Google DNS or OpenDNS for the DNS servers have no issues resolving the 'www.btcguild.com' subdomain, but a lot of ISPs are screwing it up.  I'm migrating off of Cloudflare tonight because they refuse to admit this is a problem on their end.  Going to miss the protection they offered the website, but their support is completely unacceptable when this issue is absolutely on their end given the number of users reporting it in the last few days.

A couple of times I had to restart my router and I couldn't reconnect back to the pool.

I'm running bfgminer on a Lubuntu and the message that kept popping up was something like "Stratum is requesting work update ..." or something like that. And it went on and on. After several tries I managed to get work accepted but after the latest router reset I had to temporarily switch to another pool as I couldn't make it connect again. I'll try to reconnect tomorrow morning ...

Is it me or the pool thinks I'm a bot or what? lol.

DNS issues should be over now, I have moved the DNS off of Cloudflare due to their withholding the records for 'www.btcguild.com' from many DNS requests, effectively removing the site from the internet for random people using their ISP as the DNS resolver.  It may take a little longer for the nameserver change to propagate.

The site is moving a little bit slower as a result, mostly on the *first* page load, since you're now retrieving all the JS/CSS/images from the site instead of the cloudflare CDN.  Subsequent page loads aren't quite as quick as it was for me on Cloudflare, but are not too bad, at least coming from California (which is one of the slowest locations to access it from within the US).  I'll be working on tweaking things with the site this weekend to help speed it up.  Most of the slowdown is that I'm forced to proxy the site through another server in order to protect it from direct DDoS attacks.

Just confirming I also get the "This Connection is Untrusted" message in Firefox too.

I wasn't sure if it was just me as I'm the process of setting up a new laptop with all the updates and annoyance that entails, but I tried www.btcguild.com from another fully operational pc a few minutes ago and unfortunately still get the untrusted connection message:




Thanks for you help.

Got that too...  But if you changed server, that's normal :-)  You may have to fiddle with the certificates again  Undecided

Thanks for the update.  I wanted to make sure here that the site was still legit... and not hacked!

My mining rig was offline while I messed around with the new laptop and reconfiguring the miner for a different operating system. Now that I'm mining again and connected to the pool, there doesn't appear to be any issues with the 'untrusted connection'. Not really sure what is happening, maybe some defense mechanism regarding the DDoS attacks perhaps, but either way, things seem to be normal again and I can log into my BTC Guild online account without any certificate issues.

So... thanks I guess Cheesy
