Back to normal. Looks like only some users were affected and it did not last long.


Not sure if you fixed the alarm but it triggers on my browser even if it's not checked. (It might be my browser that hasn't been reloaded for a while)

Let's say today is good day for that !! hahahaha Cheesy

Hehe. Now that really shouldn't happen. Are you sure you don't have it open in another tab?

But yeah, good day for it Smiley

That alarm can ding all it wants if we keep hitting blocks like today!

Been really happy with my experience at Bitminter, with hardly any connection issues, and really straight forward miner data.  Thanks!

The only thing I like to see that I don't on Bitminter is a recent hash chart. I like you current computational Power meter, and how you show Latest shifts in two locations.

But, maybe somewhere on the workers page, or shifts page you can add a line chart of hashrate over time to see any blips, or large drop offs for visual people!  Just a small opinion you may have gotten from someone before.

Do not get disappointed dude. That shit happens at times. Doc said once that people tend to remember bad things in mining and do forget good ones quickly. Unfortunately he was right in my oppinion. But it is time to change this  Wink
Just be patient and do not change pool just because something bad happend. No pool is immuned to that and no mater what people told you this shit happens everywhere .
That was my number one pool when I was mining. As people say the one and only. I do miss times when I was in top three hashers here......with just one avalon from batch one shipped on time and a couple of Icarus boards...

Please help the Led Boy aka Bicknellski to make us a nice Christmas led tree and pay WASP membership fee here:

A staled block.  Wow really.  After 4+ days.  I'm really trying to stick with Bitminter.  But a 4 day staled block, that's bad.  I'd rather throw the measly 1.2T back on the other pool and get some paid blocks from it.

It's just double bad luck. We had 4 blocks in 1 day just before this stale block ;-)

Hmmmm...

I don't think that stale blocks are the mining pools fault...  Huh

Maybe DrHaribo or others can explain to us who are uneducated as to how that happens?

Ultimately, Bitminter has been a WAY BETTER pool to date than others I have tried.

Don't know who else you have tried, but I wouldn't say the same thing.

I've only been mining for about 18 months -- and the two pools I used prior to Bitminter were Slush and Antpool...

I'm only currently hashing at about 6Ths -- so my share in the larger pools is minimal...

Only been mining a couple months, but I have to say that overall bitminter has been the best interface and most consistent with users and shares.

A few days with just a stale block seems harsh, but I imagine solo would take somewhere to the order of months to years. Very happy with this pool.

I'm 2 years in with around 8.5T.  Majority of my power is at slush.  I couldn't imagine having 200T and not getting paid properly.  I understand our payouts are bigger, due to smaller pool size, but there hasn't been a payout in the last 7 days.

This is exceptional bad luck. Hopefully it will be a long time until we see something this unlucky again.

For those who are worried about high variance but also don't want to contribute to the situation we have now with China controlling 65% of the global hashpower, mining in multiple smaller pools (like you are doing, Darthswan), can be a solution.

But, maybe somewhere on the workers page, or shifts page you can add a line chart of hashrate over time to see any blips, or large drop offs for visual people!  Just a small opinion you may have gotten from someone before.

Yes, something like this has been suggested before. I have average hashrate numbers for shifts, but currently nothing more fine-grained than that. Not sure if I should make graphs out of those or start collecting some more fine-grained hashrate data.

In the last month I noticed that Slush was suffering too, from less and less blocks.
IMHO, It is mostly because big private pools like Bitfury, KNC and others are taking over. In the last two month hash rate jumped from around 350PH to somewhat 700TH, or doubled. The only manufacturer of small miners is AntMiner with S7 now. All others are gone private, including beloved Spondoolies. I don't believe AntMiner was able to produce over 70,000 S7s in the last three month. Although, it is possible but not probable.
I think, Spondoolies went private big time with its SP50; this single unit makes 0.11PH!!! 20 of these take out Bitminter whole capacity.
We will see less and less blocks hatched out of private pools. It seems that the days of private mining are over.
Last 60 days, shift pay dropped from about 0.00035btc/h/Th/s to 0.00025btc/h/Th/s
It is just sad reality for private miners.

Yeah, there is no doubt blocks are, and will be harder to come by if bitminter stays in the 3 Phs range as the network continues to grow. But with average luck it will all work out over time, just depends on how frequently you need to see rewards come in in a week or month!

I had another crack at the live stats audio bug that would sometimes play a casino sound even when there was no new block. Clear the cache in your browser to ensure you have the latest live stats version and this problem should be gone the next time you reload the page.

Please let me know if you still hear winning sounds without winning Smiley

You can also get a notification on your mobile device by installing the Yo app ( https://www.justyo.co/ ) and sending a yo to BITMINTED. Granted, a "yo" is not as cool as a crazy casino sound, but otherwise it works very well.
