In that case I'd suggest doing the same again: show what you have and let the forum give feedback. If it's good they can give you advice on how to prepare the work for publication, if not you're saved the effort and possible embarrassment.

Here are some things we (and others) would likely be interested in checking:
  • Is the description clear enough that we can understand the intended algorithm?
  • Does it classify all primes as prime?
  • Does it classify all composites as composite?
  • Does it run in reasonable time on average primes?
  • Does it run in reasonable time on worst-case primes?
  • Can you prove the above claims?
  • Is the algorithm easy to implement?
