Mined my first bitcoin with a 7970 in ~2 days on your pool back in Feb 2013. Thanks, eleuthria! Best of luck in your future endeavors.

Just a reminder that the mining server will be offline at 23:59 UTC (or shortly after) on June 30th, which is about 20 hours after making this post.  If you plan to continue mining on BTC Guild up until the mining server goes dark, make sure your miners have failover pools in place.


For the first week after the mining pool shuts off, withdrawals may experience brief delays (up to 8 hours if it happens right after I go to sleep).  I'm expecting a significant increase in withdrawal requests once the server shuts off and people who have been mining on auto-pilot finally go to the site and read the news.  This will require moving coins from the cold storage to the payment server, which is a manual process.

Thanks eleuthria.
Yours was the first pool I mined with. I sincerely enjoyed learning through your statistics and forum posts.

Code:
A BTC mining experience with the best, proven record. 88 weeks + at 106% + and 181 solo blocks as of 05-29-16.
I will tell you a bit about two people who are unmatched in technical experience, troubleshooting, knowledge and time spent
online in the BTC world supporting not only pool members, but the entire community.
CGMiner is the software used on more mining equipment than any other software, and is written, maintained, with continuing significant achievements by these same two gentlemen.
The Pool and Database software used by many pools is written and maintained by them.
It is constantly under enterprise pressure. It handles multiple attack vectors and evolves staying ahead of every other cobbled piece of code in use at any other pool.
This is The Total Package in BTC Mining Software:
Kano of THE PPLNS CKPool located at www.kano.is
and CK aka Con Kolivas of THE solo mining CKPool located at http://solo.ckpool.org
If you are not mining at one or both of these pools you are not mining, you are searching.
Get serious regarding your numbers and evaluate the data yourself: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1338693.0

On another note if you use the forum trust system as a gauge for buying or selling please take a moment to evaluate my personal opinions and consider how much weight this system sincerely helps anyone.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=905210.msg13227629#msg13227629

Trust Abuse by dogie against many members is rampant.
He attempts to use it as censorship against anyone who dares call him out when he gives bad, or poor information.
He has given people advice which could or may have caused harm.
He offered to remove negative trust against me if I would post specific text. The text he requested is not truthful and I refuse to be extorted and blackmailed.
So should you.
Do your own investigation and confirm yourself if this is a one, two, three, or even four or five people incident and maybe he could claim truth or misunderstanding.
Once you see how many people have been abused by his methods I believe the truth will be obvious.
Everyone has an issue here or there, but few have so blatantly abused this forum's trust system.
Take Dogie's rating against me for example.
I have a blemish free record and have worked with many of the most trusted members of this forum with positive outcomes.
I have and would never buy / sell anything with dogie.
Be safe and don't use dogie's ratings system of any type. They are skewed by money and personal vengeance against honesty regarding his behaviour and comments.

Clearly there are going to be a lot of confused faces from people who don't bother keeping up with what's going on. I suspect you'll get a second flood of new posts after the pool has shut down.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.


Do not go gentle into that good night - Dylan Thomas

You've got some funny math skills... the announcement post is dated 10/22/2011.  The first block with BTC Guild in the coinbase script was 152700 on 11/10/2011.  If you're going to make something up, at least make it somewhat credible.

Eleuthria, best of luck to you in your new cardboard mansion Tongue

The pool has been public since May of 2011.  This announcement post is the 2nd post for the pool.  When it changed from Proportional to Pure PPS (and before PPLNS was introduced), we started a brand new thread.  BTC Guild mined *thousands* of blocks without a tag in the coinbase, because the old pushpool software we used in the early days didn't have a built in way to add coinbase tags.  We were the third oldest still running pool (second oldest if you start measuring from our first block found with the pool software during private testing, but Eligius opened up to the public a few days before BTC Guild).

Thanks for the clarification eleuthria.  I do indeed wish you the best in whatever it is you decide to do.

Dust, please accept my apologies.  I based my reply on the information I had available, which was quite obviously incorrect.  And, I admit, I saw the newbie tag on your account and jumped to conclusions.  Again, my apologies to you.

Pool servers have now been taken offline.  Miners have hopefully already begun their journey to failover pools.

I've got something like 3.25 NMC to donate toward your cardboard palace Grin  If you have an address I can set. It would keep you from having to handle it till the default date since I don't have a NMC wallet set up. Cool

I've removed the pages which will no longer serve any function (Charts, Workers, Rankings).  The Pool Stats page has been updated to show you the pool speed history over the last 2 and a half years.


Will likely begin posting some informational posts about the pool later this week just so anybody looking to start their own pool can learn from my mistakes and growing pains, and people looking at other pools can know what things they should look for from a pool operator.
