Question: The pool currently runs at a 0 expected fee. Would you prefer a 1 percent fee in exchange for the pool paying out for all solved blocks including those that fail to mature? Majjority rules.
No, keep it the way it is.
Yes, impose a 1% fee and pay out for all blocks including those that fail to mature.

Brand new to BTC but I noticed this thread in my initial research and decided to join the pool earlier this week. So is it normal for a pool to go this long without finding a block? I've thrown my 1.15 Gh/s into the hat (score-based), but seeing as the round hasn't ended since I joined I have yet to see my first bitcoin.
This is an abnormally long round. At current hashrates, we should on average find a block every 3 or so days. However, the more people who join the pool, the lower our time to find a block and the more even the payouts. So hopefully the situation improves over time.

Yeah, variance is a bitch. Just wait (or get deepbitters to join continuum instead).

Hello all,

Database dumps are now up. They show the worker, time of a share and score along with any BTC owed to that worker. They are here:

Is there an API to see how much hash rate is going into PPS?  I know it doesn't affect our rate of earning or variability, but I am curious how many have moved over from other PPS options.

Should my balance be blank? I've been running it for almost two days: http://www.continuumpool.com/balance.php?worker=1D6v2gzXV4Tj7RtHPfpWmy5fRD68ZmN6Mm

Is this because a block still hasn't been found?

All payments have been sent. There is now plenty of BTC in reserve so hopefully a delay like this won't happen again. Once again, sorry for the inconvenience.

Is the PPS wallet empty again?  I have been >1 BTC balance for a couple hours and haven't gotten a payout.

Can someone point me to a guide or explain how to use the RPC service for all the other functions? Thanks

There is, you can use the ppshashrate() function. Currently 10ghash in PPS mode so bigger than the score pool.

Thanks, worked perfectly.

By the way, if you don't mind my asking, how is it going on the PPS end?  I like the PPS smoothness and am willing to pay for it (plus stability).  But I also worry that with only a 5% fee on the PPS side you may have a long bad luck streak in the PPS miners not finding blocks, get way in the hole on payouts, and eventually get frustrated and shut down the pool.  So, are things going ok?

Remembered another question.  I like that there is no registration (similar to Eligius).  Payouts happen when you get >1.0 BTC.  Is there a system to payout the balance after some period of inactivity (Eligius uses 7 days I think) no matter if it is <1.0 BTC?  Since there is no registration, there would be no other way for us to request a payout if we ever decided to stop mining at continuum.

Yes, I need to implement a 7 day payout if we have not heard from you system. Now that the new version suggests TX fees of 0.0005 or whereever the decimal point is, sending out amounts less than 1 BTC isn't as onerous as it once was.

Is the PPS pool empty again? I've been sitting at over 1 BTC for a bit now and have not been paid. Any news on this?

Martok, can you please give us an update on what is happening with PPS payouts?  I see that PPS just paid out this afternoon long after a few of us were >1BTC.  Can you please let us know what is happening? 

Is the cronjob to do payouts just not working reliably? 
Did the schedule change so that it is not hourly?
Is the PPS pool just not finding blocks reliably enough to stay solvant? 

I know I am a little uneasy and I suspect folks like Adebelius are as well.  A little more information would be comforting.

Trying this again.  It recognizes my hash rate, but shows nothing for my balance. Is that normal?

Yes, you don't get anything in your balance until a block in which you have contributed shares gets found.

The current round started 2011-05-30 14:20:23.526037-07 and no block has been found yet.  It's a long round.  But also it is a small pool, so your 200ish MH/s will earn you in the neighborhood of 1.6 BTC for each block that is found (as long as the pool's total hash rate stays at about 7.6GH/s).  So, you get paid less often, but you get paid in larger chunks.  On a larger pool, you'd get paid more often, but in much smaller chunks.

Hi,

I'm at 2 bitcoins on PPS for over two hours and I did not get paid. Should I switch my miners?

Thanks.
