Unreserving exponents via manual forms or not?
 
Hi,

I'm doing some factoring work on my laptop at work which cannot use the normal methods of communication with the server. So I'm checking out exponents with the manual forms and sending the results by email to George.

My question is, should I manually unreserve those exponents that George has credited or did he just forget to do something to them by accident? I've got several exponents still showing up on the stats page even though George acknowledged that he got the mail (and credited the work).

You should send the results using the manual forms. That way they get removed from the server as well. For the moment, just send George an email asking him to remove your assigned exponents - providing him with a list would be helpful. But keep in mind that he removes old exponents once every 15-20 days.

The manual forms didn't work the last time I tried them (some two weeks ago). Have they been fixed now?

Unless the forms work now, I'll wait for a couple of weeks and see if the exponents disappear from my account and then ask George if they don't.

Thanks!

The exponents still haven't disappeared but they are in nofactor.cmp with the correct figures. This means I should just use the unreserve exponent feature, right? I also tried checking in some new results, I'll have to wait and see whether they appear correctly in a new nofactor.cmp or not whenever a new version is out.
