Hmmm let me know if you come across any news or updates.  My first Dogecoin withdrawal was confirmed in a couple of minutes.  PTS may be full of great ideas but if not user friendly much fail.

Update: The transaction has  11 confirmations  now. Imdon't know why it took 8 hours, but probably because it was a small amount and sender didn't add any transaction fee would be my guess.

Thanks for the update.  I still only have one confirmation and it's been almost 8 hours.  I was not aware of any transaction fees that needed to be added. Not sure what I should do, feels like my funds are in limbo which is not very comforting.  Should I just let the wallet run all night and hope for the best, attempt to cancel somehow, or close and restart the wallet?

Keep the wallet open and then wait,no other way.

If blocks are slow and there are lots of transactions occuring (like there would be today and yesterday), then transactions w/ 0 fees will have a hard time getting into blocks.

I always add excessive fees to my transactions, for DOGE it was 1 per 1kb, for PTS it's 0.001.  the default min_tx for pts is 0.0001, so if you use 0.00011 then it's np.

Thanks.  Where/how are transaction fees added to any PTS transaction?

I had the same trouble with a withdraw from bter.com,  and after  almost 18 Hrs,  I get my transaction confirmed
Unfortunately there is no option at  bter exchange for adding the "transaction fee",  I don't know in Cryptsy,  but anyway you can't add the fee after the transaction. (not than I am aware of)

So you only has to wait, and wait..  and hope your transaction get at least 6 confirmation before 11:59 GMT.

Good luck.   :)

It looks like my withdrawal did get confirmed into my wallet so that is good news.  No I did not see a way to add a transaction fee in Cryptsy...

I know for Bitcoin at least Cryptsy automatically includes a fee in excess of the minimum (0.0002 instead of 0.0001), it's probably the same for PTS.

From what I've been reading here, there are at least a few exchanges that send out PTS with 0 fee... probably because 99% of the time that's fine, since blocks come relatively quickly and it takes a while to reach that max block size for free transactions (10k for non-priority, 27k for priority?  i keep getting stuff mixed up, so could be wrong).  It's just on the 27th and 28th stuff got bogged down
