Strange, I didn't yet have problems with that...

Well, if/when I finish my "poolpool"-software, this won't be an issue for me any longer anyways.
You'll finish it Wink, its not that hard to make Smiley
Check if connec problems or 0 MHash, try again if no luck go to next pool.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Not a pool feature specifically, but Nicksasa of our IRC chatroom (#btcguild on freenode) has a bot which has been used for pool stats and block announcements.  He recently added a betting system where people can bet 0.1 BTC for how many shares our next round will take, winner take all minus 0.01 off the top (transaction fee to send winnings) and a 5% fee from each bet (0.005).

EDIT:  Corrected transaction fee taken off the top (0.01, not 0.1!)

new server running pretty good for last 4 hours.  Might want to lower 275 Gh/s to 220 Gh/s on front page as it looks like pool is dying due to the upgrade.

Just a slight correction on the betting numbers, its 0.01 for the payout transaction fee, not 0.1
So winner gets:
Betting Pool Total - 5% (fee kept by bot for service) - 0.01 (payout transaction fee)

Also, its fun and awesome and whats 0.1btc to most of you miners out there!

Will signups and interface eventually run through SSL / HTTPS?

Basic security is a must, I don't touch plaintext signups / password and email transfers.

Ho-Hum.

Only use your own network to login, and use a wired connection...
HTTPS is of the past.. SSLStrip and its gone

now that deepbit has been down for over 1hour+ and slush having difficulties there has been a huge increase in traffic to btcguild.  i have switched my miners over there and i'm getting tons of rejected shares and Warning: work queue empty, miner is idle in my phoenix miner.   is this error because of huge increase in traffic that btcguild is having difficulty handling?

Maybe this will help:

 02:52.20          .•• you are now talking in #btcguild
  02:52.20          .•• the topic is 'The official channel of BTC Guild (www.btcguild.com). We're now on the dedicated server! If you have problems connecting, try mine1.btcguild.com for your miners.'

It was going to be in last night, but the server became available and I moved the pool over.  Since then I've been celebrating mostly as the pool is working, going strong, and growing fast again.  The alerts will likely be available late tonight/early tomorrow.

With slush down, I figured I'd swing over here and try out your pool.

So far, so good. I like the clean UI. Also, the lack of 502 gateway errors is a bonus ATM.  Shocked

[29/05/2011 22:39:18] Warning: work queue empty, miner is idle

Getting these on occasion, even dropped the askrate to 4. Shouldn't need to drop it further? Or are you getting DDoSed as well?

Please, please switch to score-based. I want to see how good your interface is for myself before I decide whether to go here, but I won't even consider moving to a pool that isn't score-based.

The key thing to remember about why share-based is bad is that "shares" are actually worthless. Think about solo mining. If you mine for 10 minutes solo and then stop, you get nothing. You probably came across some "shares" while solo mining, but they aren't worth anything. The only thing that's really worth anything is a winning block. Shares only exist to tell a pool server that you're still mining in a way that can't be forged.

You want the shares of people no longer hashing for your pool to decay quickly. Because they aren't helping you find a hash anymore.


I can't disagree with you more.  If I dedicate my mining rig to your pool, and leave it unattended hashing away for hours and hours, and then before a block is finally solved my internet disconnects, or that mining box crashes - with your way I won't get hardly any credit for all those hours my box was dedicated to helping YOUR pool solve a block.

Hell no.

Regarding score/pershare debate:

- how often does your rig go offline just before a block is solved?

compared to:

- how many pool hoppers will there be lowering your daily income by 10% or more, considering that some of them already published their tasty stats?

The max. you can get out of a pool via hopping is 128% (instead of 100% which are expected).

Until THIS impacts everyone in the pool to -10% there must be a lot of hoppers...

Still I'd love to have eleutheria investigate about score based distributions - the pool is now by far big enough to be an attractive target for hopping.
