I've been mining for deepbit.net, but wanted to get my cash because I've changed. I had just small change now, 0.04230547 bitcoins. However, when I asked for payments, I only got 0.04 bitcoins, and deepbit.net keeps the remaining 0.00230547?? Maybe not a lot of money, but for every user they keep up to 0.009999 BTC when that user quits. I guess that's in addition to their 3% fee, so in reality it's 3% plus 0.005 BTC on average. But for me, the 0.005 BTC is more than 3% of what I've put in...

Or is there a way for me to get it? Do I have to mine until I get exactly 1.00 bitcoins or something like that before I receive everything?

You might be better off asking this in the deepbit thread.  My guess for this is, the current bitcoin client only shows up to two decimal places by default.  So until that changes, maybe that is why?

Those sub-bitcents are never taken by the pool, they still are in your account.

Of course i'm not sending full-precision sums because this will cause problems for users with previous versions of clients and then they will ask me why their money is lost.
So it's better to send only >= 0.01 BTC at least until most clients will upgrade to the official bitcoin client that doesn't discards < 0.01 change.

You can mine 0.00769453 BTC more and withdraw 0.01 BTC then.

I started on 3.20 client and when I upgraded to 3.21 all my sub 0.01 transactions were listed.

Thanks for explaining! I have a fairly new client, but I don't know what it supports. Maybe that could be an option (off by default), to enable sending sub-bitcent values? Not sure how I can mine exactly 0.00769453 BTC, I'd have to keep an eye on the mining and stop it exactly when it's done, or otherwise just let it pass I guess.
