Then in a follow-up poll, narrow it down further, etc. For the purpose of this poll, M45 is being defined as the next mersenne found. Of course we are using the convention of using the exponent, without the 2^ -1. No guesses, predictions, or reasoning in this thread. Only voting and comments about the poll.

Strange, I didn't see any poll there before, but I see it now. Maybe my browser is (sometimes) not 100% compatible with this forum.

IIRC from the last time I made a poll, the poster first writes his post's words, indicates it will have a poll, then submits it, then it asks him for the details of the polls. Maybe you happened to catch it between him submitting the text and him submitting the poll's info.

Thanks, that would explain it. Looks like I was too impatient.

 2008-06-01, 10:38 #10 Flatlander I quite division it     "Chris" Feb 2005 England 31×67 Posts I have a cunning plan... I will start testing a candidate for 'M45'. While I am testing, it I will create 50 new forum accounts and force the polls to home-in on my number, thus proving it prime. I will get some more quadies with the money.

That restriction is frustrating!
By way of a comment on the poll I would
compliment you on a sensible selection of ranges.
Comments on the results so far have to be censored
to prevent prejudicing future voters.
