still brand new here...just setup multiminer and im using a pool called bitcoin affiliate network

On my multiminer it has spot for worker name and i put my screen name.  on the BAN website it has an area for me to "configure workers'' and add a suffix.  do i need to do this?  Or is it going to automatically go into my account? 

Also it's my understanding that the flow is as follows:

1. mining is math
2. miners do math
3. i get a percent of the work my miners do in bitcoins
4. bitcoins go to my wallet
5. i take over the world

Most pools have a Getting Started page that includes the pool information and worker instructions. For Bitcoins Affiliate Network this is located here:

https://mining.bitcoinaffiliatenetwork.com/index.php?page=gettingstarted

That page includes a link to the Workers page where you can configure your workers:

labelling workers is mostly usefull if you operate a dozen and have to locate a distinctive one, due to performance issues popping up.

if you plan to take over the world, you should really start writing in uppercases. not such a small mousey-ish "i take.." try "I" at least and add more bang to "THE WORLD!!"

These are damn near impossible to setup unless you have programming or hardware experience which I do not have. There aren't local us cities on this site either to maybe find someone to show you the ropes
