The pool is in the United States.  If I'm given a warrant, I must comply.  If I'm given a subpoena asking for specific information, I will comply.  If what I'm provided with appears to be nothing more than fishing, I will request clarification/specifics before taking any action, but if legally required to do so, the information will be provided.

Not that any of this makes much difference, since the only miner information I can provide is what users provide to me, which is extremely limited.  If I'm asked what John Doe mined on BTC Guild, I cannot answer unless other information is given to identify which user was John Doe.

Crap, gotta change my email address, user name, set up a new account through tor, change this username...nah, just kidding.  I'll pay my dues, but the IRS better have a bitcoin wallet...

With the change if fee, has the crediting of blocks to the pool changed to 1 confirmation ?
I noticed that block 293443 was on blockchain.info for 6 minutes, but not listed by BTCGuild.

I noticed that block 293443 was on blockchain.info for 6 minutes, but not listed by BTCGuild.

Here's how it works:

1) Block is found by BTC Guild.
2) Within a minute, the frontend recognizes the block and it's listed under Pool Stats.  This process also identifies which 10 shifts will get paid for the block.
3) Once the block has a confirmation, the block is credited to the appropriate shifts.



So BTC Guild is still offering the near-instant rewards, you don't have to wait for the block to hit 100-120 confirmations.  It just waits for another block to confirm its own block before applying the reward to accounts.  To date BTC Guild has never had a block get orphaned after another block built off it (it's extremely rare to have a blockchain re-org beyond a single forked block).

EDIT: Obvious exception for the 0.8 hardfork orphans with regard to BTC Guild not having a block orphaned after another block confirmed it.

Solid move, Eleuthria. Simplifying the marketing message is great, especially considering the neutral net effect it has on us miners.

Don't forget to let Organofcorti know about the changes for the Bitcoin Mining Pools List.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

 If we have an orphaned block, with the time for conformation and such, will it show up on the dashboard and then disappear? Or is the only way to know that an orphaned block happened is to be watching the blockchain.info?

Orphaned blocks will show up under the Pool Stats listing of our last 200 blocks, as "Orphan" for their block #.  They will not appear on your dashboard or on the PPLNS Stats pages at any time (they only show up on those pages after the block has another block confirming it, AKA:  Not orphan).

Simple sounds best for your business but the IRS is probably wrong to try and do this.    If BTC was unique then maybe but its not, there must be thousands of crypto networks many junk but still.
    Are they really going to chase down every 2 bit operation.  I would expect them to target the businesses or hubs first so it is wise to respond but the IRS is criminalising a population which Im sure history has shown to be a pointless endeavour

Quote from: Edmund C. Moy,  38th Director of the United States Mint
The IRS made this ruling because it has the legal authority to do so.  But rules are not laws and therefore can be changed as circumstances dictate and as long as they do not contradict the law.  Wider acceptance of bitcoin, in spite of this speed bump, is one such circumstance that may force the IRS to reconsider its guidance.

Pool service restored, database server had stopped responding.  Looking into logs now to find the cause so it won't repeat itself.

Do I need to reconnect my farm?
