Target reference link is incorrect. Like all block payout pools, it will not average 100%, it will average below 100% due to orphan blocks. --Kano (talk) 05:27, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Flag icons

Makes it too hard to tell what they are (not everyone has flags memorised). --Luke-jr (talk) 15:40, 4 October 2014 (UTC)


Hashrate entries should be automatically fetched every hour or so. SmokeTooMuch 23:56, 8 June 2011 (GMT)

I agree, but want to add that a 24 hour median value would be a good idea. Not everyone an a specific region is online 24/7. This would even everything out.--Neptop 08:46, 9 June 2011 (GMT)\
Not everyone has the same daily routines either, so make that at least a week. Pool variation also means it needs to be at least a month. --Luke-jr 16:09, 11 October 2011 (GMT)

The note about pool hashrate being largely irrelevant is wrong. The pool hashrate determines variance of your payout. A pool with a large hashrate is more likely to have frequent and predictable payouts. --ChocoboLee 07:51, 11 July 2011 (GMT)

  • Largely irrelevant != completely irrelevant. In general, once you get past a certain point (eg, about 150 times your own hashrate), it ceases to make any significant difference. --Luke-jr 14:55, 11 July 2011 (GMT)


Aright then luke, how do you think we should do it? The wiki is in need of some kind of remake, its a mess. I thought that would be the best way to do it, but if you have a better idea let me hear it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tittiez (talkcontribs) at 14:28, 30 September 2012

  • This page seems fine as it is. What problem are you trying to deal with? --Luke-jr (talk) 19:53, 30 September 2012 (GMT)
