Problem has been resolved. Sorry for the delay.
Unfortunately Verge is notorious for its high orphan rates across pools: https://github.com/vergecurrency/VERGE/issues?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=is%3Aissue+orphan
Our infrastructure is extremely optimized for low-latency communication. This applies both to between daemon and pool as well as pool to miners and we are still frequently hitting orphans.
Regarding 1. let's just say that the owner of moneropools.com who also runs the supportxmr.com pool and I are not on the best terms. We've been in contact in 2017 and at some point he stopped responding and ignored me ever since. I have no idea why.
Hashrate updates after a couple minutes. If you could post your miner config or start script I could have a look.
No, doesn't matter and now it should work here too.
Devon: Might be worth checking out this thread.
Great that you got it working.
Should be fixed now. We simply didn't have GeoIP mappings for the middle-east.
Which country are you trying to mine from?
