Can you add an option to manually create the password for the worker? It shouldn't be a security issue as long as it's a different pw from others. This way I don't have to change the set up of my rigs too much.

Thanks

This is the only feature I miss from other pools. If you can add this in, it would be perfect. Grin

I would second (third?) this.  There really isn't a security risk with letting a user choose their own password.  I've seen some pools that let you choose just one letter.  hehe

+1 on worker password changes.

Is anyone else having problems with auto payout?  I'm above 0.75% for donations but it hasn't triggered.  I tried re-saving with another % value but it's still not working.

I just mentioned that. Mine has never auto paid, been at 3.5% since I started mining.

yeah, I have auto-notify on and it has never notified me about idle workers, either... so, I guess none of the notifications are working except for block solving..

anyway, some new development  for the last 8 hrs or so, stats are frozen on the top miners, personal workers section, etc.   dunno if that might also have some impact on it showing solved btc/nmc blocks

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).

There have been some significant changes to the backend recently.  Because of that, auto-pay was broken since last Wednesday and we were unaware of it until greatwolf mentioned it.  Auto-pay should be fixed now and it'll auto-pay once the next solved block is confirmed if you're donating less than 3.5%.  If you're paying 3.5% or more, it'll pay out when the next block gets solved.

Here's a few things that were added/fixed:

- Payouts to Ogrr is now supported.  You can specify a percentage of your BTC earnings to go directly to Ogrr or manually transfer them over.  If you don't know what Ogrr is, it's a forum that allows trading with bitcoins.
- One-time donations have been added so you'll be able to do a one-time donation of coins you have in the pool to the pool.
- BTC and NMC donations/features are now independent of each other.
- The email/wallet locking mechanism has been tweaked.  Please make sure your email/wallets are still locked (or unlocked).
- Miner payout blocks shows all miners paid instead of the top 20

You'll need to turn on idle miner notification, which is currently off on your account.  Then you need to go to the workers page and set the parameters for which workers you want notification on.

Can you add an option to manually create the password for the worker? It shouldn't be a security issue as long as it's a different pw from others. This way I don't have to change the set up of my rigs too much.

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.

yeah something broke, all my miners dropped ( at exactly 12:00am/0:00 ) but it appears they are still working?  My page shows we are on block 200? But the last payout was block 116, with data unavailable.

Stats weren't being transferred to the web server.  That should be resolved now.  The problems don't affect the mining activity.

12am is about when backups occur.  There has been a problem with the backup agent locking up the database and preventing updates to it for a few minutes due to the large size of the detailed shares tables.  The long term solution would be to queue up the logging to survive database problems like these.  To avoid downtime in the short term, we might have it skip backups of detailed shares information.  Most of the stats are stored into condensed versions so damage should be limited should a disaster occur.

We have had some seriously great and seriously painful blocks on this pool.  If only there was a way to screen out these big blocks. :p

You could figure it out if you wanted to go through the stats for each summary page: https://maxbtc.com/statistics/block?coin=0

For BTC:

Work Count117
Invalids3
Average Difficulty1,547,152
Average Shares1,501,689
Total Shares175,697,613
Total Block Amount5,704.42345396
Total Rewarded5,832.56766768
Total Donated30.57293529
PPS0.0000333706
PPS @ 50 BTC / Block0.0000324421

These numbers are slightly off from the totals shown on the page because they're more precise.
