How do these numbers look, now that 4 have been found (assuming the latest find does pan out)? You can take the current wave front at 82m.

22 years, 4 months and 3 days after the discovery.
Among the older predictions, sm88's from his last post seems to be closest to this day (Oct 30, 2018, which is off by 4 months and 17 days). And remarkably, BQ's very first guess at the start of this thread comes just behind that (Aug 22, 2017, off by 1 year, 6 months and 25 days). Edit: Generous interpretation also leaves a place for axn's prediction in post # 4, "58 years" after Dec 2010. Last fiddled with by mart_r on 20190316 at 20:45

For future reference: Mersenne 47 (M43112609) was the largest prime known at the time this thread was started; axn wins if Mersenne 55?? is discovered by Dec 31 2030.

I'll go ahead and make another one: there will be less than 55 known mersenne primes by the end of 2030, so M1398269 will still be on the top 20 list on 12/31/2030.
