I am mining litecoin with give-me-coins and I have the following info on website's stats section

 Valid Paid: 118
 Invalid (Not Paid): 113 (95.76%)

As far as I know this is not very good.

How can I make it better ?

I use cgminer 3.7.2 (used 3.6.6 also) with following command

cgminer --scrypt -o ltc-eu.give-me-coins.com:3333 -u user.pass -p x -I 11 
  • What are you mining with? Usually the pool will tell you more specifically - often it's because your connection is unstable and the shares went stale by the time you submitted them.

You can try decreasing your intensity. Other parameters can also lower speed and decrease/remove failures. It's like running too eagerly, it might make you trip a lot.

It could also be your Internet connection or even give-me-coins itself (although I doubt it's give-me-coins itself).
