Bug fix:  When a user who has been inactive for a long time attempts to connect, it will restore their account if it was previously pruned for being inactive.  The process of pruning inactive users does not affect rewards in any way, so everything will be waiting for you upon return if you did not cash out.

Please define what qualifies as being 'inactive'?

Like... a couple months? a week? a long holiday weekend? etc

Only users who haven't logged in since October should have been marked inactive.  The process of being marked inactive doesn't actually mean much.  It's simply copying their stats to a different table so that queries which require a full table scan on the users don't look at the inactive users and their workers.  I did it manually in January, because we had over 50,000 registered users, but close to 30,000 which hadn't logged in since August 2011 or earlier due to the bubble popping.

I don't remember when I first noticed this, but it has been around for ages:
The accepted share % seems wrong. To illustrate:
I currently have: 47025 accepted, a total of 241 rejected and an accepted % of 99.49.

If I do 100-(100*Rejected/Accepted), I get 99.48750664540138% accepted shares.
I I use the correct formula (100-(100*Rejected/(Accepted+Rejected))), I get 99.49011974781027%.

While with these numbers, the result is fairly close, it is still obvious that the incorrect formula is being used - when I first did the calculation, the numbers were a lot less ambiguous.

Thank you for pointing this out, it has been fixed.  As an aside:  You might want to look into your miner settings (intensity/aggression).  0.5% rejects is significantly higher than the pool average.  This is assuming the stats you linked are bitcoin side, not namecoin.

EDIT:  Ignore that aside note (leaving it there though in case anybody else thinks 0.5% is acceptable).  I noticed that your reject rate since 2/18 is 0.15%.

Yes, I probably should have mentioned that most of those were from back when cgminer still ignored MM-related longpolls; reject rates of >10% take a while to average out... Undecided

Could it just have been the site doing 5/4 rounding to 2 decimal places? If that was the case, then both of those results would have been correct to the displayed 2-decimal place number.

If the website just trims off the excess tho, then yeah, discrepancy.

No, he was right.  My formula was not adding back the rejected shares to the accepted shares.  It was calculating your accepted percentage as a percentage of accepted shares, rather than as a percentage of total shares submitted.

On the bright side, this error made BTC Guild's reject rate look [slightly] worse, rather than inflating the percentage above what it actually was.  Of course, as pointed out in ancow's post, the discrepancy was extremely minor.  The difference would have been more visible for somebody with a much higher reject rate, but still very close to the actual amount unless the person was seeing 5%+ rejects.

For those unaware, Bitcoinica was compromised and a database leak is likely to be coming.  Hopefully by now all users have learned their lesson, but I need to stress this point:

If you used the same password on Bitcoinica as you used on BTC Guild [or ANY other website], you should change your password(s) now.

just one question, how about selling mined btc direkt to you? Just as a option for Guild Members with a small % fee for you.

A DNS error occurred in the last day that wasn't caught.  Users pointed specifically at 'mine1.btcguild.com' were unable to resolve the proper IP address.  If you had a failover to any other BTC Guild server, no mining time was lost.

Hi eleuthria, thanks for great pool with very convenient interface!

I wasn't here since 2011 and returned just recently to mine a few cents to play with. But discovered that with current difficulty and minimal withdrawing threshold increased by 10 times, I need 9-10 days of continuous mining just to be able to withdraw anything... And for namecoins, the time would be about 40 days Sad
Is there any way to withdraw a portion less than 0.1 BTC? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to have this feature. Delayed payment would be totally fine.
Or maybe you can reduce these thresholds, especially for NMC?

How many Namecoins do you want?  Send me your NMC address and I'll be happy to send you a few worthless things. Smiley

I was merely thinking about getting several BTC cents and may be 0.1-0.2 NMC as side effect of merged mining.
I cannot mine much more with my current hardware anyway.

But you can send as much as you want of course Smiley
My NMC address is MwaoMwvuJgzevoEAHLyoDb2gU1PUw3PhwW
Thanks.

Well you mine approx 3 times more NMC than BTC with Merged Mining.

I sent you some NMC's, enjoy.

Wow, that was generous  Cheesy
Thank's again

Another option would be to add possibility to donate unused BTC and NMC to pool's owner.
Even if it's small amount - it just doesn't seem to be right if it will stuck in account forever.

No problem.

I do donate NMC's to a pool.  I also have some stashed in an offline wallet too.

As far as being stuck in an "account forever", I like to think of it as saving for the future in the hope that BTC will be a monetary standard at some point.

Uh, you don't.  The purpose of locking it is so that nobody else can hack your account and change the address and steal your payout.
