PM1 is P minus 1 factoring and F-PM1 denotes a factor found using that method, or at least it should.

I have some ECM credit (5093029) due to a manually reported factor found by TF.

This kind of error about the method used sometimes happen with manually reported factors.

This is an old bug, which we all believed it was fixed. However, quite an interesting case here. How much PM1 credit did you get for that? (just curious, it seems to be an anomaly with the credit too)

Of course, Madpoo/James can fix the credit issue.
