A: The exponent you guessed is assigned to you and Rule 8 applies
B: You gave a nebulous date. Rule 2 applies.

  3. You can not guess a number (or date) that has already been guessed. If you do guess a number or date that has already been submitted, this will count against you and impose a wait as in rule 6.
  4. If you guess a number that has known factor, at the time you posted, your guess will be ignored. It can have a 'composite' LL or PRP status (pending a recheck), but not a factor. Guessing a number with a known factor will count against you and impose a wait as in rule 6.
  5. If there is a tie (i.e. 2 posts are equally close and meet all other rules), the first post gets it.
  6. You may post 3 guesses (for each number and date). If all exponents up to your number have had a first time test (or DC), you may select another, after a 60 day wait. Same (60 day wait) for date predictions that have passed.
  7. All guesses received within the 48 hours before M52 is reported (by or to anyone by any method) are hereby disqualified (to prevent cheating). This disqualification period will extend through to the time that a person reports to the forum that a candidate prime has been noticed. When that happens all guessing is closed.
  8. The discoverer of M52 (not the 'noticer') will have all guesses posted more than 10 hours after they were assigned and/or started the expo (whichever is first) that is reported to be prime hereby disqualified.
  9. If the prime that is reported fails the rechecks, those disqualified in 7 and 8 will be restored.
  10. For the sake of this game, we will use the date (in UTC) that the prime is reported to and recorded by the PrimeNet server as the date (PRP or LL result). This may differ from the officially reported discovery date. If M52 is not first reported to PrimeNet, the judgement of the date to be used will be left up to George or his designee.
  11. Previous discoverers (not the noticers) of M Primes are granted an extra guess (4 vs. the standard 3). This means the person who used the machine that first reported the prime.

To make this "practical" and more attractive, a table with actual guesses should be maintained in the first post together with the rules. Or sacrifice Wayne's (second) post for it. One would like to make predictions, but with such strict rules people have no time to read/skim all the (40 pages!!! of the) thread, to avoid reposting dates and exponents, etc.

There are posts like this: https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...&postcount=398 so that you only have to look at a few posts after that.

Or maybe duplicate the first post, then edit the dup.

That means, if your number is the one, you get no glory for a right guess.

So I now have to maintain that for every guess.
Thanks.

We're all volunteers. Do as much or as little of it as and when you like. You don't need anyone's permission for that. Anyone who whines about it not being current can be considered to have volunteered to maintain it within the hour of each new guess until Mp#52* is discovered, verified, and announced. In the absence of a new "volunteer", may we find M52* soon, to release you from this endless burdensome toil.

Delete if desired. Then it goes back to exactly how it was before.
