We originally allowed this per worker but it was changed to a single generated password for all workers to prevent people from choosing weak passwords that can reveal their main password.  Also, unlike most pools, abuses on your worker accounts can cause the account to be temporarily banned from mining.

It looks like there are many people that want to be able to set their own passwords so we'll put a it back on the list of things to do.


So when will this be re-enabled? It sounds like you already have the code in-place to do this.

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.

That's how DGM works.  Every time a payout is made, you lose some of your score/reward for the next estimated payout.  I'm not sure if there are any sites that show a graph of your historical estimated rewards or update the estimates as frequently as we do (approximately every minute) so you wouldn't notice it at other pools unless you kept track of it manually.

The amount of dropoff depends on the dynamic fee and cross-round leakage.  If you've been using Eclipse, I believe the leakage is 0.99, which will have little dropoff every time you get paid.  The lower the dropoff, the longer it will take to get your rewards to fully mature and you'll need to mine for a longer time period to reach equilibrium.

Meni uses the analogy of a capacitor:

In the capacitor analogy, every miner has a capacitor which is charged as he submits shares, and its charge level affects how much he gets per future block found.

If you read the method's description you'll see that finding a block has two effects:
1. Giving out rewards to miners who currently have a score
2. Decrease the score of miners who currently have a score
It has no effect whatsoever on future miners (or on the rewards of current miners for shares they will submit in the future - only those that they submitted in the past).

It was removed and had to be re-implemented.

You should be able to change your passcode now.

There's a DDoS in progress.  The network provider won't allow any new connections to the site but those that use miners that use keep-alive connections are still able to mine until the connection closes.

You don't happen to be on Rackspace do you? A bunch of our services went down for a few minutes until they nulled the offending IP.

yeah, i was checking that too.  it's rackspace,

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Yup, rackspace.. though my other business has a few servers with them as well (separate account) and those were fine.

Hi there. Just wanted to say that I moved my systems (1GH) to MaxBTC because of the nice site (GUI / Stats are awesome).

One problem though, it looks that the idle miner notifications aren't working. I have enabled them for three workers, donated 1.25% and enabled underperforming miners notification in my account.

The lower the dropoff, the longer it will take to get your rewards to fully mature and you'll need to mine for a longer time period to reach equilibrium.
I wouldn't say that. In the language of the triangle, lowering the dropoff moves you away from the black line and into the blue line; while the black line is characterized by low maturity time, it can still be arbitrarily decreased on the blue line.

The main advantage of using aggressive parameters (high dynamic fee, low leakage) is decreasing the variance of small pools.

Thanks for joining.

It looks like you've set it up properly except for the test worker.  Was that the one you were testing the idle miners notification with?

Thanks for the correction and link.  I haven't seen that and it should help people understand how the different variables come into play.

I was thinking along the lines of sites with extremely high o and extremely low c (resulting in a low r/high maturity time) to explain the low variance the poster was seeing.

Added two-factor authentication to the site.  Yubikey and Google Authenticator (HOTP and TOTP) are supported.  You can set it up under Account > Password & Security.

Unfortunately, no fix yet for the rotten luck we're having.

High o and low c does not result in low r. Even in the limiting case o=1, c=0 (which is exponential PPLNS) you can have r whatever you want. r is determined by the ratio between how close c is to 0 and how close o is to 1.

Ahh yes.  I'm more used to dealing with log(r) and log(o) than fiddling with the other parameters.
