(2014-10-13 14:25:02 UTC) Server Issues Resolved
Over the past 24 hours we have been upgrading servers and moving more hash to merge mine doge. Over this time we ran into a few issues and mining was interrupted for some users on some servers.
We want you to know we are aware of the issue, resolved it asap and everything should be working properly now.
We are currently merge mining about 50-60% of our total hashrate and will be near 80% in a few days we hope. We should be at around 90-95% within a week. We will leave probably roughly 5% as non merge mined hash to keep a backup available on our older servers.
All winners have been contacted with how to claim their prize. Thanks to all for mining with us!
(2014-08-16 10:16:18 UTC) Grand Prize Winners Picked
Check out the contest details page to see the lucky winners! The grand prize winners who won 100LTC each have been drawn and picked.
Bonus tickets were also awarded for those who earned them.
If you were not a grand prize winner you still have a chance to win the consolation prizes of 10LTC each! These will be drawn soon!
(2014-05-22 00:05:56 UTC) About 51% and other concerns
In the latest weeks, we can see alot of panic spread over a possible 51% attack. We at WeMineLTC we want to remind and give an open promise to EVERYONE: We have agreed over 6 months ago, with LTC Devs, that we would NEVER allow our hashrate to surpass 40%. In case something like that was to happen, we would
1. close registrations
2. increase fees to force some people to go
3. suggest other pools to miners until the situation balances.
This is an OPEN REMINDER and PROMISE to the LTC community.

(2014-04-19 11:30:39 UTC) High Speed Scrypt ASIC Server Available
We have launched an ASIC server for those individuals or entities wishing to test and deploy scrypt ASIC's. We are willing to work with those deploying ASIC's to get the right difficulty settings required for optimum performance.
If you are wishing to test or deploy scrypt ASIC's you can contact us via our issue tracker ticket system in the forums. This server is not for GPU's or GPU farms, the difficulty will be too high for gpu's. The difficulty of this server also will be too high for the asics that are low speed IE Gridseeds can NOT use this server they are to slow (under several MH).
(2014-03-31 07:28:01 UTC) NOTICE: New DDOS Link For Website
Due to issues our ddos provider has had recently with our website, we have switched the website to a new ddos protected link with a new provider.
During the switch over, dns propagation may cause page load issues randomly, if you have issues you can use www3.wemineltc.com or www2.wemineltc.com in the meantime.
After a couple of hours the dns should be fully propagated and issues should be resolved. If you continue to have issues, clear your local dns cache.

(2014-01-15 19:07:54 UTC) Set Fail overs
As everyone knows servers can have issues from outages to attacks due to this we are once again advising all out members to set fail overs for our other servers we have written a guide here https://www.weminecryptos.com/forum/topic/1694-guide-to-failover-server
(2014-01-05 20:43:54 UTC) New Feature: Anonymous Stats!
We have added the ability to enable anonymous stats on your account. When you enable this feature your username on the site in all public lists will be replaced with a generic user id. If your username is not public then someone would not be able to try to guess or bruteforce your password causing your account to be locked out for an hour. This is just an extra level of security we now offer for those users who wish to use it. If you prefer to have your name shown you can just ignore this message and leave everything as is. If your interested in this new feature you can enable it on the bottom of the account details page found here: https://www.wemineltc.com/accountdetails
(2013-12-26 21:01:28 UTC) Block Payout Reports Under Maintenance
Update: Due to the large number of users we have decided to remove the payout reports. Creating such large reports was too much strain on our database and considering the number of users in the reports they no longer served much purpose other than seeing your own payout for the block which can be much easier done in your transaction log which it now links to.
Due to the increased server load the larger payout reports are causing we are temporairly disabling them while we do some optimizations of the report generation.
We will expect to have the payout reports restored in a day or two. In the meantime you can always check your transaction log in order to check your block payouts. Thank you.
(2013-12-15 14:31:12 UTC) Max Diff Has Been Increased!
We have had miners asking for a larger max diff setting with the new cards out and people building faster and faster rigs. We have increased the max diff you can set for your worker to 1500. You will only see this higher Max diff if you set it in the worker config though. If you do not set a diff for your worker the max diff will continue to be 600 automatically.
Also, some users are setting their Max Diff too Low. Setting your difficulty too low causes unneeded extra load on the server and increases traffic. If the server detects a max diff is set much too low for a worker it will ignore the max diff. If you have any questions you can stop by our IRC or forums.
(2013-12-15 01:23:34 UTC) HK.WeMineLTC server (Issue)
This server is having issues right now the data center are looking in to it for us
Please use other servers on the getting started list and make sure to set fail overs in your bat files so not to lose mining time
(2013-12-11 09:53:22 UTC) New Litecoin Version Released
The Litecoin Development team has released a new version of the Litecoin client. This new version has many upgrades and starts the roll out of the new lower fee for sending coin.
Currently they are encouraging users to ugprade but currently they suggest only power users upgrade as you need to modify your config file to add a supernode.
