many mined blocks are 111 tBBP but others are more in the 4k tBBP. Is there a limit being reached such as tithe coming in or daily payout amount?

The 111 bbp blocks are reaper only payments (IE you found the heat mined block).
The 4K blocks means there was no sanctuary found in testnet to pay, so your node kept the entire payment.

I'm trying to see if PoG will reduce sell pressure on the exchanges or not?

So, with the upcoming PoG and the donated funds... the monthly superblock had BBP sent to a specific charity address if the proposal passed.

Are the funds donated to the Orphan Foundation via PoG going to Compassion like before?
So, the funds in the foundation will mean the monthly proposal will ask for less BBP because some exist in the Orphan Foundation?

100% of orphan fund donations go to compassion.com; and the exact amount will be logged in our Revenue records also so we can always reconcile.

As far as sell pressure, the original idea did have a problem I think, but the concept changed to have a Tithe Cap.  We only accept 50k in donations per day in POG, so the sell pressure should be low (1.5 MM deflating per month) in this phase.  In phase 2, it doesnt change much (2.5 MM per month).

But looking at the upside:  If we appeal to the masses the idea is there will be more buyers out there.

Hi.
Rob how to setup config in production?
I've set it with my nickname and tithe=1.
But tithes started to go (3 times :( ) even if POG is still not alive.
So, we should wait for block 100000 and then set tithe=1?

Whoops, :),  Sorry my friend, at least its going to a good cause.  So I guess that is the reason I didn't officially release it yet (I was trying to think if we thought of everything before announcing it officially LOL, and I guess we didnt).

Yes for now please keep tithe turned off by setting tithe=0 until we almost hit 100,000.

Let me take a look at this situation :).

I'm not seeing this behavior myself. I started with a brand new install and new wallet.dat

On a separate note, would you mind revisiting your wiki docs and see if anything needs to be updated?

I think these are the two relevant links? A lot has changed since Nov 2018.

I'm really behind as of today, Im about 3 days behind, I doubt I will be able to get to documentation and support in addition to programming and maintenance - thats why we need a good decentralized team at BBP to work on things together.

Is there something you need from me like access to allow you to edit or create new help docs?

Rob that's totally up to you.

I think you revoked access for everyone for fear of spam/defacing.

I'm preparing a newsletter for you to review and wanted to make sure the PoG documentation (since this is the biggest change in the last 90 days) is correct and up to date.

We have reports of people setting up tithe=1 (early adopters) and they are donated ~200BBP every 4 hours to Orphan Foundation.

Accessing the wiki and including a note about not using tithe=1 until go live date will be useful. I'm planning to send out the newsletter tonight.

Yeah, Im going to do some personal tests now.  Finally upgraded my windows node.

We should basically confirm that anyone who Isnt auto tithing has no dimensional balance or an error in the debug.log.
And that others who do have a balance can auto tithe.

Thanks Rob. 

How are the tax documents for charitable contributions accessed?

Could you give me an example of what you mean, for you personally, for our org as a whole, for what charity, and for what purpose is it for?
