Yeesh, it's almost as if this pool is suffering from the same curse that MtRed suffered through a couple weeks ago.  It was plagued by a string of really bad "luck" that turned out to be the result of merged mining.  They disabled it and variance got back to normal.

I think the higher variance lately is a product of the lower hashrate since the big hopper left.  Luck had been just about even until the last block and we've had merged mining going for several weeks now.  Did Mt. Red's bad "luck" begin right when they turned merged mining on?

I wasn't around when they enabled MM, but here's more info about it: http://www.reddit.com/r/mtred/comments/ry3ow/merged_mining_is_temporarily_disabled_info_inside/

What error is it showing when you try to add it?  Have you tried a different worker name?  Perhaps it doesn't like some of the characters in the name.

Can you PM me the worker name you're trying to add, browser you're using, and whether javascript is enabled?

I think it's fixed now.  It was an issue with IE8.

I'm confused on how to even make an account. Everytime I try to set it up I get '

"Password contains common text"

But I don't see anywhere where there are rules on the password other than length and I've tried just letters, letters and numbers, and letters with numbers and special characters soooo...

It'll let you know what the problem is.  In your case, the password you chose was considered weak because it contains some words it considers too common.  Passwords must have at least a letter and non-letter (number or special character), can be from 8 to 128 characters, can't contain your username, and must pass the common words check unless it is sufficiently long.

Well I highly doubt what I had is any sort of common word and it wasn't part of my username. I mean part of it was a name, and doing a quick wolfram alpha search, is not common at all. I'll play around with it and see if I can get anything to work.

If you absolutely must have a certain word in the password and it's complaining about it being common, you can increase the length of the password until it gets accepted.  For example, if the password "common123" was rejected, you could try "common12345678" instead.  Also, it's not only common words but common names as well.

So what determines something being common? Or is that something internal that you don't know the specifics of?

It's based on analysis done by others using leaked passwords on social sites.

The common words database used contains:

- Lists of top 20-100 words used in cracked passwords from various sources
- Top common names according to certain sites
- Dictionary words used by password crackers

Common names are on the list because the analysis showed many cracked passwords contained common names.

The list is English-centric so common international words will probably sneak by.

Thanks, I ended up doing something really ridiculous I'll probably never remember but I wanted to try out the pool ha. I see I joined when we're nearly taken 2 days to finish a block, not sure if that's standard here or just bad luck but I'll try it out, thanks for having this great pool with such an awesome interface.

Thanks for signing up Smiley  Luck is pretty bad on this round.  We're currently at 5m+ shares and the average should be about 1.5m.

Now that there's been a few blocks I have a question. Why does your estimated btc immediately drop after a block is solved and rewards are given out even if I've been continuously mining? I haven't experienced that at any other DGM pools.
