How could I obtain a copy of that database? I was probably one of the last ones who created actual articles there (not just some esoteric number tables).

Also I feel ashamed and embarrassed for the Wikimedia Foundation: they have so much money in donations, but MediaWiki is such a dung...

I have experience with Wikis and would probably be able to fix/host it if desired.

There's a lot of information there that is useful for new people like me, and I've been resorting to archive.org for now.

The wiki page had a great 'why help GIMPS' page, would it be possible to include that section on the site somewhere? I used to link that wiki page to people, but now I can't.

FYI, Mike has asked that I bring the Wiki back online. I have a data dump, but it's taking a little while to clean up the DB, and migrate to a contemporary code base.

Unfortunately the original domain expired, and was picked up by a domain squatter. But I've registered another domain which is appropriate.

I'll let everyone know once it's back online. Hopefully later this week.

Would you be willing to upload the 'Why help GIMPS?" page somewhere?

I've restored that page here, not yet all links available in that text.
Changed some links and the "Just 50 in all of human history" updated to "51": but this should be done by a template, which gives the current counting instead of editing such page everytime a new Mersenne prime was found!

I've replaced the '51' with a expanded template, the abilities with such templates are enormous.

Is there a way to just have the number, ie 282,589,933-1 (and clickable), as an additional option? That would keep the main page up to date. (And maybe colourise the WR MP on the globe, in say orange or green [a non standard link colour].)

New option 'pure' added with clickable link to M51, but the font color is not changeable, only for global, so all links would be displayed in that color.
