As a note, the server will accept overlapping TF results as long as you increase the bit level. In other words, you will still get credit by submitting "no factor from 2^74 to 2^76" results. Just make sure you actually factor to 76 bits because submitting fake results isn't cool.

Or if you don't want to factor to 76 bits, you could ask George to manually insert the results into the database. Just keep in mind that it sometimes takes a while for him to respond to these requests.

Thanks for pointing it out. Didn't know that, guess I could have done that.

Nesowa is kinda (in)famous for doing that. It happened in the past few times, fortunately he doesn't do it too often.

Someone might want to nicely ask him to refrain from poaching exponents. Anyone know his forum username?

Aaron could provide data via PM to a mod that would open the possibility of find the user.

Why not cut out the middle man and have Aaron directly email the user? I'm sure GIMPS has an email for all registered users.

I am not sure that Aaron has access to the data needed on the forum side. (He is not a super mod, just a moderate mod).

That's my point - forum is the middleman here.

EDIT:- IMO, this is not forum's business, this is GIMPS business. The user might not even be registered on the forum.
