Other Primes
I thought it would be nice to have a thread discussing primes found by others, or by us but not related to RPS.
And the first one is 2^12037932^601897+1 (362378 digits) new Gaussian Mersenne norm record set by Cruelty. More details can be found here Congratulations! The form can be searched using the latest version of LLR (3.7.x). I tried once at 400k but it was a bit time consuming (on my laptop) and I gave up.

Earlier this month I found 99*10^1396701, the new Nearrepdigit record. In fact, 10 of the top 20 for this form have been entered in the last
23 months.

Badges marking the latest 9.8Mdigit Mersenne prime are available in this thread. Sign up there if you'd like to have one.

(2^1127239+2^563620+1)/5 is 3PRP!, which AFAIK is the largest GQ so far
The question I have now is, how to prove it is, or it is not a prime BTW: I don't consider using PRIMO or other ECPP based software for this purpose as it would take more than my life to complete

Yes, huge
26773*2^24653431, 742147 digits. 20th of all times! Note that now an entry to Top100 requires binary exponent n>1.2M !

That's L191, S. Banka who is (unfortunately ) not with us. He found 5 large primes in only one year, he began with 12121 project but now he is testing k=737 (=11*67) alone. He is now 13th by score!:surprised 4 of his 5 primes are currently in top100, only Cooper and Heuer have more primes in top100 while Grobstich has 4 too.
