[QUOTE=Cruelty;537961]The most uptodate reservations and statuses are available on mersenneforum.org, and other lists like rieselprime.de or 15k.org are outdated.[/QUOTE]
There needs to be a single location for everything. Having it in multiple places makes it more difficult to see what who is running. [I]k[/I] = 25 being unassigned in the database makes it "fairgame" for anyone to take it over. If this happened, then you would be [U]locked out[/U]. All they would have to do is to start sieving and testing just above the last updated [I]n[/I]. The result would be a duplication of effort. You have spent 11 years on this? Grab it! Since it is already there, it would not be difficult to keep it current. I an not saying to stop posting here. It is simply too tedious to look through all these pages when a person can see it summarized there on a single page. 
There is a location, and it's this forum. Other locations are for convenience. If you find them inconvenient, don't use them.

Very well then. A simple search would work for anyone curious about starting a [I]k[/I] which may be taken. No relative results, then it is freeandclear. I will not belabor this any further. 
[QUOTE=diep;536869]If there is 1+ closeby we'll have it soon as well.
69 seems very unpredictable now because of the huge gap, yet odds are they group a little together.[/QUOTE] Yep! Here is another, this one with 2,058,738 digits, 69*2^68389711 [url]https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=130718[/url] :party: 
This one has not been yet verified but it looks genuine.
[SIZE="3"]6962 · 31[SUP]2863120[/SUP]  1[/SIZE] 4269952 Digits. Largest of the year. Will rank 20 if verified. [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=130702"]https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=130702[/URL]

Nevertheless, it is a great achievement by CRUS.

You are totally right!:smile: It might be posted somewhere else? Any suggestions?

[QUOTE=Cruelty;537960]Solid 11 years :smile: This is quite "heavy" k.[/QUOTE]
It's quite more than 11 years now: I've included the primes found from the older primes thread with post links in the Wiki and your first found for [url='https://www.rieselprime.de/ziki/Riesel_prime_25']k=25[/url] was in 2006! 
discovered my first mega prime with help of the PG sieve file
[B]3329 · 2[SUP]3388472[/SUP]  1[/B] is [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=130974"]prime[/URL]! (1,020,036 digits) :jvang: Really lucky there, I began testing at exponent 3,330,000 about a month ago. 
You tested only k=3329 from n=3330000?
For a Nash weight that low you tested only 516 nvalues to find such prime. Lucky hit.
