Reducing Chances to Mint Into a Forked Chain

Hi Guys, I run a small pool and rarely mint.

Each epoch I do a leadership check, and if we are scheduled to mint I follow up after the date/time listed.

Most recently it appears that I successfully minted but into a fork.

My understanding is that there is not much I can do to ensure I don’t mint into a fork as information is taken from the previous block.

I’m not super knowledgeable on the minting process either and if I am wrong please let me know. I have another block coming up this epoch and want to ensure I give the pool and operators the best chance I can

Thanks in advance.

It can depend on how well your relays are receiving other blocks. How many relays are you running? p2p?
