Edit: I found out, you turn the result into an mfakto line with this format.

No factor
UID: (Your name (or a fake name))/(Your compid), no factor for M(exponent) from 2^(starting bitlevel) to 2^(ending bitlevel) [mfakto 0.15pre7-MGW cl_barret32_76_gs_2]
Factor
UID: (Your name (or a fake name))/(Your compid), M(exponent) has a factor: (factor) [TF:(starting bitlevel):(ending bitlevel):mfakto 0.15pre7-MGW cl_barret32_76_gs_2]
(add * at the end of the ending bitlevel before the colon if it was partially tested. This will give more credit in the exponent page)

Using the format is one thing, but don't fib about which program you used. If a program appears to be under reporting factors, there may be a problem with the program. Reporting results with a false program ID prevents the proper analysis of issues like this.

Any way to fix that?

Use the factor5 format for posting factor5 results.
If it doesn't work, contact James Heinrich by PM. He is very good about fixing things or identifying errors in submission attempts.

+p on don't forge (counterfeit, fake) results in any way. Among other things, it
distorts data that might be used to determine relative prevalence of use of the various applications,
creates a greater likelihood of manually introduced error into the result report,
misleads developers and administrators as to in which applications any observed errors occur,
etc.

And please don't use factor5. Mfactor is faster. Its reference thread contains multiple ready to go executables for Windows and Linux.
And please don't do routine factoring above 2^32, which is supported by mfakto and mfaktc, which are far faster, and there's plenty of work to do there, or even below 1G.

If you're trying to submit results and you think something isn't being accepted the way you think it should be (on either mersenne.ca or mersenne.org), please tell me about it

Factor5 results should be accepted on mersenne.ca as-is, although it's better if you prefix them with UID: <username>/<comp>, so they're credited to you and not anonymously. Note that factor5 no-factor results are not accepted. Below 4G you should use mfaktx, above 4G you shouldn't really be working here.

I'm not familiar with mfactor, if someone wants to send me a sample of both factor and no-factor results I would appreciate it.

Done, & will do another, and update the mfactor reference thread after doing a fresh install from download onward.

I used factor5, but it also doesn't include the required end in results.

I'm not sure if this is a question or not?
Are you still having trouble submitting results? If so, please post an example of what result you're trying to submit and to where.

Submitting a no factor result for 9999999967 from 63 to 75 to mersenne.ca (and 1 to 63)
