What do you mean everyone here has? If there wasnt general guidelines to go by 95% of users would not be able to figure it out at all. We all ask for help on occasion and all use help provided by documentation and online. So dont act like I am just being lazy i simply asked for help like maybe 4 times and got no response.
Even if your using some xeon processor and getting 10x+ as much speed as i am its still simple to divide by the speed and determine how much i would make vs how much you make. Which would have easily been deduced as not profitable. anyone could have chimed in with a simple I go this fast and make this much per day and i could have easily figured it out without wasting 8 hours of my time.
Not everyone wastes hours of time doing something when they can easily find the results using mining hardware comparisons or similar. Otherwise wed all be buying nvidia gpu blindly. I have done nothing to upset anyone in here or cause problems. So theres no reason I shouldn't receive help when I ask but noone did. I found it disheartening which is the only reason i mentioned it. If anyone where to come in here asking is 1800pps on beeers miner going to be profitable, I can easily tell them no. Why is that so difficult? I would be happy to spread my knowledge then making some dude tweak and mess with a dumb miner for 8 hours just to find out it wasnt worth 8 minutes.
No guarantee its not going to be profitable? Come on really? How do you think profitability calculators are made? its just math if your working at 3600pps and im working at 1800, Pending luck ofc I should make half as much as you per day. This isnt rocket science. Knowing the knowledge i know now (after my 8 wasted hours with xpm) I could have easily told someone its not profitable in my situation just as easily as you or anyone could have told me. Im not saying your math or profit calculators are 100% accurate because difficulties n prices change all the time. But were talking about something that was clearly not profitable. Like using your gpu for sha mining. If someone came in here asking if they should mine btc with there gpu would you really say, Well it might be profitable why dont you try for yourself? Again this isnt rocket science when its this obvious why make someone waste there time.
