Maybe my question is way off base here, because I'm an ethereum novice. I would like to run miners on the rinkeby testnet. I'm more interested in getting the mining process up and running and exploring the effects of that. I know there are better ways of getting ethereum - that's not why I'm mining.

If anyone can offer pointers or advice on how to set up miners on the testnet, I would appreciate it!


Rinkeby doesn't run Proof of Work, it runs Proof of Authority. This means there are no miners. The people that create blocks are pre-authorized nodes. It's a network where pre-selected and trusted people are allowed to create the blocks.
