I'm currently working on trying to speed up the generating of the prime tables for Riesel primes.
So I decided to extend a new parameter "RCount" to the Riesel prime template. If RCount is not given nothing changes in the handling. If RCount is given, there're two options:  RCount is the same as the automated counting > no problem, everything ok  RCount differs from counting > Alert shown like the attachement So please do always:  Creating new kvalues now have to contain this new parameter.  Before saving any kvalue use the "Show preview" button, which will show the alert before saving and the count, so you don't need to count by your own. Fill in the correct value and save. In the end when all kvalues contain the RCount the template to create the tables will only use this parameter which should speed up the creation time. If this helps, other templates like Proth will changed, too.

The addition of RSieve will be helpful as it will indicate a k is not in process. I added this to one of mine which needs more sieving and is currently inactive. 98475.

RCount will become the value which will be taken when a kvalue is shown in any overview table. The automated counting is only done in the template of the kvalue page to be sure taking the correct value (this will stay).
RCount will not set automatically (perhaps possible later). So creating a new kvalue an entry without "RCount=" does not matter now, but this is noticed. The RSieve value is meant to show there's a sieve available for this k, which can be uploaded by everyone (the filename is generated). You can show the max nvalue, sieve depth and number of candiates in the RRemarks parameter (as example see here).

Again the sieve file:
I've changed the handling, when creating a new kvalue  new kvalue for Riesel prime created (not saved yet, only "Show preview") with RSieve set (like "RSieve=y")  there is a red link "Upload me!"  right klick the link > open in new tab  a new page pops up to upload the file with destination filename given  choose your local file  upload file  back to the kvalue page  Show preview again  the link should become blue (available page) and is "(sieve)" now  save kvalue page if anything is correct I've also included the parameter list with text into the Riesel template and a new category, when there're 100 nvalue or more for this kvalue (see here).

In your example link, there is a unit of measure, "21T." (K)ilo, (M)ega, (G)iga, (T)era, and (P)eta would be a guess. In this case, 21e12. To be honest, there are times when I would much rather sieve than test. All a person would need to do is pick a k and look at its ending n value and go from there.

I've included templates for Proth prime base b (example here, smallest open SR5, Sierpinski side)
and Riesel prime base b (example here, found SR5 prime, Riesel side). So every combination of k/base for Proth and Riesel are possible, helpful for PrimeGrid Sierpinski Riesel Base 5 Search or CRUS. Every base value creates it's own category for those k/base combinations. CategoryTree:  Riesel prime  Riesel prime base 5 (here a general page for such base should be located, like a table of all kvalues)  Riesel prime 5 1396 (= Riesel primes of the form 1396*5^n1) As a preview for including General Fermat numbers (so Top5000 comments like "Divides GF(a,b)" or "Divide xGF(a,b,c)" are possible with links in the Wiki, see here only as texts) a page for Gen.Fermat k^262144+1 (=b^2^18+1) all known primes are listed, with data as a CSV file, so expandable without editing the page itself. Smaller exponents consists of way more values, so the page for example for b^2^16+1=b^65536+1 is the same size and all data saved as file.

Some new changes:
 There's now a small menu on top of every page instead of the info block. Links to helpful pages are now available for new users or even for a quick overview. Especially the "Template prototypes" should be used by every user when creating new prime pages: all current prototype are available for the implemented prime types. Using those won't miss any parameter or using false ones. Other links are still available in the left side menu.  There're two new categories for Riesel primes in the Wiki: 1) kvalues without any Sophie Germain prime 2) kvalues without any twin prime These only holds for kvalues The conditions will be generated by the Riesel template, so could be take some time, if all kvalues are updated by the Wiki.

Also, SophieGermain prime is two consecutive values of n for a fixed value of k for Riesel prime (k*2^n1), why the wiki do not have the page of two consecutive values of n for a fixed value of k for Proth prime (k*2^n+1)? See the page http://harvey563.tripod.com/cunninghams.txt, the CK of Proth primes is 32469, which is mush larger than that of Riesell primes (807)

The Wiki make high use of templates, which are still more in testing phase than complete.
Over the last weeks I've changed the Riesel prime template for serveral issues and additions:  determine if a SopheiGermain is present  determine if a Twin is present  determine if a tested nrange is missing  determine if there's no prime  categorizing a kvalue into special categories depending of such information  added parameter for counting nvalues Those changes still in testmode and others could implemented later. If all such changes needed are done, the same can be easily done for other templates like Proth. Before editing several templates for any change done, it's easier to test them on one template and be sure it's running properly. For Twins: As you can see, if any Twin is given in a Riesel kvalue, it's shown as link to the Proth side... automatically! The same is done later on Proth side. Stop pushing others, try to clean "your" dozenal "wiki"!
