Please note that untrusted members have to accumulate 4 STAI in their collateral balance before receiving rewards by the pool to protect the pool against cheaters. When leaving the pool you can claim your collateral balance via the pools web ui.
Currently, only long known members of the Foxy Discord are trusted, but if such a person knows you very well, he can vouch for you.
Due to the fact that Foxy-Pool does not know which of your plots are farming on Foxy-Pool and which are farming solo, all plots using the same pool public key need to farm on Foxy-Pool to avoid getting flagged for cheating.
Also, if you want to farm solo or to some other pool make sure to leave the pool by clicking the "Leave pool" button in the "My Farmer" tab, so you do not get banned for cheating. For more info please see Leaving the pool
The following changes are only necessary for the node running the
farmer service. If you run the GUI you also run the
farmer service. As such if you run a multi harvester setup you only need to update the node with the farmer on it, the harvesters can remain as is.
