My issue was that I took one of my units/workers offline this morning to swap a fan and left the other one running.  The one I left running has been fine but I couldn't reconnect the one I swapped the fan on for a few hours and even then I could connect back using the eu address but not the USA one.  So it makes sense for what you are describing. They are both back working for me now.

I think the pool operator needs to hire someone to help him out. I also have been experiecing some connection issues myself. Take some of those fees you take from us and hire an expert for some contracting work. Make them sign a disclosure agreement and just get everything back up and running %100 again. You don't use the free service of cloudflare, do you? I hope  you at least have CloudFlare business. Anything less doesn't have any protection really.

Looking into the missing block right now, I have a hunch of what happened but need to confirm.

Doing a rescan of the bitcoind transaction list to make sure no other blocks are missing.  This was caused because the script which polls bitcoind for block solves does so by getting a (fairly large) list of transactions and checking for generation transactions.  This block was solved near the X:57 auto payouts, which were recently increased to handle over 200 payouts in one sweep.  As a result it pushed the generation transaction out of that list.


UPDATE:  This was the only one found.  I've updated the script to now search back for the last 1,000 transactions so it can't be repeated.  Not that it matters much, the real reason this happened is the delay in showing blocks until the blockchain has increased by one due to the NMC bug.  That hotfix will be turned off this evening since the NMC blockchain freeze has not reoccurred.

Rewards are back to being applied within 1 minute of the block solve.  Since the NMC chains have not frozen up since the initial hardfork, I believe whatever caused the original problem was an isolated incident.  This coincidentally would have prevented the above problem from ever happening, although the fix to that script will remain in place so if the delay has to be re-implemented it will not cause a block to miss the being credited.

I think he's doing just fine.  Be patient.  If you don't like it, go elsewhere.  Then you'll appreciate how good you had it here.

Shifts have been taking roughly the same time for the last 24 hours.  That would confirm my own observations:  The servers are not having problems.

If any servers are misbehaving, it's the ones whose sole purpose is trying to differentiate DDoS and Botnet traffic from legit miners.  Those servers are only encountered when you first start mining or restart.  If you have been mining consistently, there have been no problems.  If you're having problems involving disconnections, they're on your end.

Ditto Eleuthria.  Happy New Year!  BTC Guild was my first experience in mining and I must say it has been pleasant and pain free.  This is the best place to put your hashes.

I spoke with eleuthria and the local math wizard organofcorti and they both confirmed there is no easy way to precisely confirm the pool luck, which is a deal braker for me.



Switch to PPS and you don't have to deal with luck. Period.

(My preferred way is to put 3/4 workers on PPLNS and 1/4 workers on PPS)

Would you pay 8 BTC for 2 months of mining? I know I would not, because no part of the service provides value worth $6000 at the current exchange rates.
I am currently paying 1% and if you ask me even that is too much.

Maybe you should be solo mining instead of complaining?

I think I meant to say speed issues and not connection issues. Previously my hash rate would be at a 550-560 according to my dashboard and now it is at a 520-530. Nothing has changed on my end and my miner stats are good. Low error rates, going full steam on my end. I've seen my hash rate drop, but it it has always gone back  up.  This time it has just stayed lower and not gone back up. I've tried rebooting my rig, router, everything....can't get the speeds I use to get for some reason. So for me to think it could be something with the pool is only logical. I'm speaking in terms of weeks here, not days.

I am not complaining, but expressing my point of view.
I would be complaining if I had no choice, which is not the case here Wink
And don't get me wrong: BTCGuild is a nice pool with good features and design. I would be most definitely mining here if it wasn't for the high fees, which in my opinion are completely unjustified.
And I fully understand the owner: why change something that is working and is making you a s**t load of money  Grin
Just make sure you don't turn into another DeepBit: it was once the #1 pool and it even managed to go beyond 50% network share at one point, but look where it is now.

Is Btcguild still the largest pool or ghash now is on pair ?
No, Ghash is the biggest. Atm 3.66PH/s vs 2.7PH/s which makes sense as Ghash.io is free + you merge mine 3 alt coins there.

7% = 4TH/s

So not very big.

Can someone show me the math on how to calculate the fee's I'm paying here? I know it is %3, but I want to know how much I've actually given to The Guild over the amount of time I have been here. Of course it isn't one of our charts.
