I just joined wemineltc it's my first day EVER mining for Litecoin or any other coin for that matter.
So far the side pannel on the wemineltc.com for me says:
Your Current Hashrate 43 KH/s It takes 20 minutes for your hashrate to be calculated up to full speed and is only approximate, go by your work utility in cgminer. Paid Shares All submitted shares from previous rounds which are already accounted and paid for. Your Valid: 0 Invalid: 0 Unpaid Shares Submitted shares between the last 20 confirms block until now. Your Valid: 9 Pool Valid: 5614664 Round Shares Submitted shares since last found block (ie. round shares) Pool Valid: Updating... Round Estimate 1.68E-5 LTC Account Balance 0.00017 LTC
I am using the cgminer and every now and then it says
Stratum pool1 0 detected new block
and when that happens the side panel increments the number of unpaid shares (Your Valid) it says I have
so I waited until it got to 19 unpaid then in cgminer I pressed [S]ettings & [C]gminer restart when that happened my balance stayed at 0.00017 but my valid unpaid shares now said 0.
now after a while it's back up to 9, but where did those shares go? Should I have claimed them somehow? Is it automatic but delayed?
