@rds I can't change the program - that's the issue. I made one tiny change to it a couple of years back, it took me 2 days to figure out the command line to compile it - the command line was over 800 characters long. What I'm doing is setting the auto payout threshold very high, then when I want to trigger the payout dropping it back to 300. The pool still does the payouts, the manual part is that I can control when they happen.
@all Although the responsiveness of the sites seems better with the new router, the CPU utilization on the router concerns me, so .... I'm going to be looking at buying this routers MUCH bigger brother. So there will be another router replacement outage at a date yet to be confirmed, but the sites should be even more responsive, and security a whole lot higher.
btw, the price of Burst has dropped and is on a downward trend.
Not sure if this is relevant. Similar price drops have been seen before when Bitcoin rises in value. Bitcoin is currently worth a whopping 1250 USD, so that may be one of the reasons, as altcoins often have an inverse relationship with the price of btc.
Anyone has a right to take the time to gather information, investigate, and create a giant post filled with words and pictures. Yet if they have all that time to investigate, then they have enough time, in their day, to check when the other person is online.
That is a generalization, and may be quite unreasonable when two people in opposite time zones are communicating with each other or otherwise debating something. Why should person A be obliged to stay awake when he would otherwise be asleep, or take time off his or her daytime job, to keep checking when person B will be online. If person A has the time to check this, by all means, but there's no need to make this a 'must' for everyone.
No one is going to invest into this coin until we get our house in order.
This might be true for some investors, but I have successfully brought multiple investors in here regardless of 'turbulence' in the forums, they don't all care about that. The greatness of Burst does not narrow down to a handful of public debaters, and 'true' investors know this. Burst does not need fly-by-night investors anyway.
@haitch Its alright, I think everyone here would like to have accurate announcements instead of an inaccurate one and it would save yourself from angry people too if the numbers are not in our favour. Take your time.
@LithStud Yeah I totally agree. The way Adam handles criticism was quite... childish, to put it into simple terms. And therefore I think reacting on such matters should not be left to him. There are other members more suitable for that.
transparancy is key, and as they said in The Newsroom : 'There's nothing more important in a democracy than a well informed electorate'.
Thanks a lot ;) it was nice to see I wasn't standing alone out there. Thanks for speaking up as well.
@haitch That website banned me too I think for having a external link in my signature because I put a pool.burstmining.club badge on SORRY for advertising a pool at least 2 of that forums admins are on! They won't sign onto this forum anymore either so I can't contact them. It's a shame the community has split.
that just looks like you have forgotten your password. did you join through steam same as me? if so, you need to use your steam password. from what i can gather the guys that own the forum own that mining pool so doubt you would have been banned for putting that in your signature. i see loads of people with that banner in their signature :S
When I joined it asked me to provide my steam details and why would I provide my steam password to a burst forum? I tried logging in anyway with my steam but it said there was no account... And I think the signature was coming from a 3rd party link rather than the forum for some reason for me thats the only 3rd party thing I can think of linked on my account...
@haitch What's the chat plugin name? maybe to look how to enable it on the firewall
Nevermind, I got it and searching for solution
Update: this is from their website "Chatango will not work on proxy connections"
That explains why it won't work at my work.
