I have over 5Gh mining and I have a private pool running sammy007's pool. I have not had any reason to promote it because it has been for personal use only.
After the underhanded way Ethpool/Ethermine notified miners of how to vote on the soft fork I have decided to make the pool available to anyone that does not want a hard fork. I am sure I will catch some heat about my comments but a couple of notifications here and there about the voting process was not adequate notification. The way I see it, they purposefully made it difficult to see and find to get people not to vote.
Look at the top of your miners page on either Ethpool or Ethermine - what do you see? I see a BIG BLUE BANNER about new servers in China. Why wasn't that type of notification done for the voting process? Secondly, did anyone see a notification on the HomePage about voting for the soft fork? I certainly did not. To me it was a way of dictating the outcome by eliminating the options.
I am not sure about places like Dwarfpool or f2pool but maybe someone else can elaborate.
My Pool is not fancy but runs perfectly. I have not altered Sammy007 code in any manner and it is a basic pool.
If you do not support the Hard Fork and do not want to worry if someone is leaving you out of the vote then you are welcome to come and mine on my pool.
