-Points represent the amount of farming that a farmer has done. It is calculated by number of proofs submitted, weighted by difficulty. One k32 farms 10 points per day. To accumulate 1000 points you need 10 TiB farming for a day. +Points represent the amount of farming that a farmer has done. It is calculated by number of proofs submitted, weighted by difficulty.

-For farmers it should not matter what difficulty is set, as long as they are consistently submitting partials.+For farmers it should not matter what difficulty is set, as long as they are //consistently submitting partials//. 
 +This last bit matters specifically when you are still in the plotting phase, as stress to your system may cause the consistency of your partial submissions (see below).
  
 Pool operators prefer a higher difficulty, as this results in less traffic to their servers.  Pool operators prefer a higher difficulty, as this results in less traffic to their servers.

 We offer farmers the possibilty to change their pool difficulty. If your system is under high stress from plotting resulting in many stale or invalid submissions, a high difficulty level will punish you extra hard. And if you want to reduce CPU usage to save on electricity, you can set your partial timing higher.  We offer farmers the possibilty to change their pool difficulty.

-Changing you pool difficulty can be done through the [[poolinfo:dashboard:personalize|Dashboard]]. Do keep in mind that switching multiple times per day may result in bad reading of your [[poolinfo:dashboard:farmsize|farm size]]. +Changing you pool difficulty can be done through the [[poolinfo:dashboard:personalize|Dashboard]]. Under the "Settings" tab, you will find dropdown where you can choose three alternative difficulty calculators: 
 +   * Partial per x minutes 
 +   * Fixed difficulty
  
 +Choose which one you like best. Keep in mind you may only switch your settings once every hour. 
  
-For more detailed explainationsee https://github.com/Chia-Network/pool-reference#difficulty-adjustment-algorithm+===Partial per x minutes=== 
 +What our difficulty algorithm does: 
 +  - calculate target difficulty sothat time between partials is the wanted time, based on given number of partials and their actual timeframe 
 +  - new difficulty is the rounded arithmetic median of current and target diff, or round((curr_diff + target_diff) 2)

 +Sets a fixed difficulty level. Simple.
