Reward FAQ

Hi Firestorm, I appreciate your attempt at a compromise with Mining pool reward FAQ, but your edit is wrong for several reasons.

  • You have left out important information about which there is no contention, such as the fact that PPS has high fees.
  • You have kept a wrong piece of information, "... this method is disadvantageous ...", which as I explained is a myth.
  • You have removed information which was contended but is very important.

I have requested that the page be deleted. Holy-Fire 19:07, 26 May 2011 (GMT)

I don't agree that it should be deleted, it could be very helpful. I would like to collaborate with you and Luke to make a better FAQ, I never meant for my edit to be the final edit. --Firestorm 19:13, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
Well, I've recreated it as a forum post so the information is still there.
I know from the outside it may look like there are two points of view here, but (and you'll forgive me for my lack of false modesty) there really aren't - there are those who know what they're talking about, and those who don't. As you can see Luke-jr has ignored my solicitation for discussion and opted to go for an edit war. There's no way we can possibly resolve this, and frankly I prefer to just point people to a forum post which I know will contain accurate information. Holy-Fire 19:22, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
BTW, it makes very little sense to talk about score-based payouts without mentioning the problem they are designed to solve. Holy-Fire 19:25, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
I understand your viewpoint and agree that Luke should be in contact with us. We CAN, in fact, resolve this. Keep the FAQ as a barebones FAQ, with only limited info, and direct to the Forum post. If Luke refuses to listen to reason, we can get a Mod/Admin to resolve this. Man, I wish I had my mod powers here! --Firestorm 19:24, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
To be honest. I just started using bitcoin a few days ago, so I honestly don't have much know-how on how it works. I'm here to help the wiki with coding and templates, so I'm going by what people say as to how Bitcoin works. --Firestorm 19:30, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
I'll take a look at the history and see what's up... If it comes to that, i'd rather protect the page, than delete it, since useful info is... useful ;) --Nanotube 20:18, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
Good idea, then we can debate what to add in the talk page, before bothering you relentlessly until you add it. Brilliant! --Firestorm 20:19, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
