Use adblock, and you wont see any ads Smiley  I never knew the account page or any other page had ads on it Smiley

And why would you do that? If you don't donate to the server the least you can do is allow a small ad on the page to help with server costs. There are times to use adblock but this isn't one of those times.

Out of curiosity, why does it take 120 confirmations, vs. slush only takes 100 confirmations?

If you Solo mine, and actually find a block... the 50 Bitcoin reward appears as a "Generated" transaction... as opposed to a "Sent" or "Received" transaction.
The Bitcoin protocol requires 120 confirmations before "Generated" coins can be spent. Since the pool Generates the coins, eleuthria is just making you wait the same amount of time that he has to wait before you can get your reward. I have no idea why any other pool would not use that same 120 confirmations.

The 120 confirmations are required to make absolutely sure that the block that was found is valid.

Now, let me take this time to remind everyone that you can skip all the waiting if you adjust your donation to 2.5% or more.
Not only do you help eleuthria pay for the servers needed to run the pool, but when a block is found, your estimated rewards goes instantly to your confirmed rewards. Even if a block is invalid, you still get paid.

The Bitcoin protocol actually only requires 100 confirmations before "Generated" coins are credited to your address and are spendable. It's just that the local client doesn't actually let you spend them for another 20 confirmations for some reason. Slush (and maybe others) modified their local bitcoin clients to allow them to go ahead and spend them immediately after they have been credited (100 confirmations) instead of waiting 20 more.

UK server cluster is now online.  Current setup is two pool nodes.  If all goes well, I will add a third node and take down NL2.btcguild.com (pointing that old address to the new server).

UPDATE:  UK servers had a quick restart (~5 seconds) to fix their addnode settings so they will always connect to the BTC Guild pool nodes.

I tried connecting to the UK cluster server for a bit. What people are saying is that it gets work and solves shares but the Worker Summary doesn't display it. It's probably a front end error.

I made a simple python json script to read from the BTC Guild API using the key found under "API Settings" in the user account at btcguild.com.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env python
import sys, simplejson, urllib
API_KEY = 'insert your api key here'
API_ARG = 'api_key'
URL_BASE = 'http://www.btcguild.com/api.php'


class BtcGuildError(Exception):
    pass

def stats(query):
    url = URL_BASE + '?' + API_ARG + '=' + API_KEY
    result = simplejson.load(urllib.urlopen(url))
    if 'Error' in result:
        # An error occurred; raise an exception
        raise BtcGuildError, result['Error']
    if query == 'all':
        return result
    else:
        return result[query]

def main():
    if len(sys.argv) == 2 and (sys.argv[1] == 'all' or sys.argv[1] == 'workers' or sys.argv[1] == 'user' or sys.argv[1] == 'pool'):
        print simplejson.dumps(stats(sys.argv[1]), indent=4)
    else:
        sys.exit("Usage: btcgstats.py <all|workers|user|pool>")

if __name__ == "__main__":
    main()

Set API_KEY to your own and run the script.

UK servers aren't showing share stats on the front end. We are getting credit & total shares show on the block stats page.

I don't mean to be that guy but this has been the case with EVERY new server added recently... maybe its time for a check list  Cheesy

Fixed the problem.  It actually wasn't a problem on NL2 or DE.  I added the stats -before- I put the server online this time.  Unfortunately, I had a typo on the IP address (left off the last digit) used to request the server's worker summary for a user on the My Account page.

Shares were still being counted, it was just the worker summary script not properly polling the UK server cluster.

EU (UK) having a few issues after trying to point regular 'btcguild.com' to it (~600 GH worth of people who haven't picked a specific server).  Working on diagnosing the problem, btcguild.com pointed back to DE for now.

I refuse to look at ads in my browser. Sorry.  Especially when I am donating 2.5% to the pool, I despise the idea of having to look at ads.
I run adblock on every single site I visit. There are many many other ways a site can make money other than plastering the page with ads.

I don't know if this was talked about before, but recently (the past few days) my systems have been bouncing from 99% GPU load to 95% and even lower sometimes. This happened on 4 different systems and I couldn't get it to stay steady at 99% as usual. I switched over to slush's pool for now and they are all staying steady at 99%. This is with the same settings and same systems. Any info on what might have happened?

I'm donating 2.5% and there are no ads. Could you tell me of some of the "many many" other ways a site can make money?

The ads only appear for < 0.5% donators.  Adblock or not, they will not appear unless your donation is at the lowest levels.  The site is not "plastered with ads".  It has one wide but short google adsense banner ad.

Other ways to make money?  I'd be all for it!  This was just a way to get something out of the continued growth.  The pool's donations per block have been slipping consistently, and these ads on 0.0-0.4% donators are a very good way to normalize the revenue coming from people who don't give back to a pool that is currently demanding many dedicated servers.
