I've not had any problems. And I'm running a script to add algebraic factors to numbers in factordb so I've been doing about 1 access per second so would notice any outage.

I saw this already mentioned in another thread, numbers of the form k*2^n+1 are called Cullen numbers in the "More information - Listed as or is factor of listed special form" tab on factordb.

Example: 2^700*3+1 (click on more information)

The respective -1 form has --- none --- in that field.

I tried for a while to transform 3*2^700+1 to Cullen form, but got stuck at 48 * 256^87 + 1 ;)

That is definitely not a Cullen number. Please rename that category to "Proth numbers" or restrict it to numbers where k==n, the actual definition of Cullen numbers, in order to match the Woodall category.
