I found an additional four primes overnight. I have placed the new ones in my template and updated the other info. This is not showing in the table yet. Is this an automated process?

The table of Riesel primes will not be updated instantly, but you can force this by clicking on the table page in the menu "More" the "Purge" command, perhaps 2 or 3 times.
I've corrected the k=98475 page:
- no need for "Last update" -> it's in the template parameters
- history: last on top
- checked for twins and added the comments

No hurry as long as it gets done. Some of the inactives have the "Last Update" at the top. Understood about the history. Twins is something I did not think about. Hopefully, I can get to a point where you do not have to go behind me and correct things! :blush:

Testing for twins is easy.
- for possible twins the Riesel k-value has to be divisible by 3: 98475 check
- running LLR will create a result file with found primes with pairs like the original sieve file like
[code]
100000000:M:1:2:258
98475 1056
98475 1127
[/code]

- edit this file as follows (first line) (explanation see the Readme.txt -> Appendix from LLR)
-- change the "M" into "P"
-- change the "258" into "257"
- run this file with LLR again, use different result file then

The new result file contains (if exist) the twins.

I will change the Last update, where it's not needed.

A couple of quick questions, and two possibly other registered uses may have considered:

My current reservation is [I]k[/I] = 98475. Is it possible for another registered member to change my data while it is reserved? What if someone decided to attempt to delete items from an unreserved [I]k[/I]?

First question: Yes, it is possible. It would be considered poaching, if they find a prime above the region you are searching. Or vandalism if they change the values of n that yield primes.
Second question: One can easily go back to an earlier revision of the page, using the view history button and then use the undo links to roll back to that revision.
As to disciplining the person that would do such a thing, I'm not sure what would happen. kar_bon would know, though.

The Wiki needs a registered user who is logged in to make any changes of any page.
As said undoing changes is no problem because of the history.
If any user vandalize the Wiki he will be warned or blocked for a certain time or at all.
This is a Wiki for collecting results in serious prime hunting and related not for kids leaving their footprints in a social media as it's sadly common in these days.
And again: As admin I have to confirm [B]every[/B] edit by any user in the Wiki, so such things will be spotted and reacted as needed.
On the other hand: any reservation done in the Wiki is no warrenty for you that others could search the same thing and find primes. This happend also in this forum years ago where RPS k<300 were searched by others and 'stole' primes then. You'll never be free from such behavior.

I believe the "registered" users of [I]PrimeNet[/I] would have far more integrity and self-respect than anyone who would poach. At least, I hope so.

storm5510 2020-03-31 15:14

Would you prefer the dates in the history section be GMT? It is really not that difficult. My location, EDST + 4. I ask because most other things here use it. PrimeNet, GPUto72, and so on.

kar_bon 2020-04-01 09:57

What do you mean?
History section of any prime page?
There's only a date given (no time) and links to forum posts or found dates of the Top5000 page.

The history dates are handled like this:
- if a prime is in the Top5000, the found date is taken from there
- if this prime is also mentioned in this forum, the post # is given and builds a link of the date given from above not from the post (this can differ when user not posted or posted later)
- if the prime is only in a forum post, the date of this post is given

There's no need to keep any time and would makes it more difficult to manage.

You even do not have to update any prime you reserved several times in a day or two.
Consider:
- every edit will save the whole page, so keep several edits at once
- testing new a value, a reservation entry is needed
- every Top5000 prime should be inserted with a HistF entry
- update the value page after reaching n=1M or unreserved
- update further milestones like new primes

If you meant the "View history" of any page:
- I've no influence on the server time because it's hosted.

[/QUOTE]

Exactly. As you have no control, other than typo's, this can stand as is.

Some of the prime pages may not be showing up in the table. 10151 is not there, or I am missing it.

The table may eventually get so large that it might refuse to load for some. I am going to stop introducing new [I]k's[/I] and work some already there to higher [I]n[/I] values. There is a lot to choose from.
