To contribute also a little to the discussion we expected to find roghly 6 Mersenne primes with 1-9 decimal digits, 6 more with 10-99 decimal digits and so forth

....

and 6 with 10 000 000 to 99 999 999 decimal digits

Very unexpectedly ,we have already found 4 in this interval, so far we have been extremely lucky, but if we are unlucky there might only be 1 or two more Mp with less then 100 000 000 decimal digits.

Here is a Little table:

I tend to look at the number of Mersenne primes with n (decimal) digits in the exponent. From the point of view, we already have 10 Mersenne primes with 8-digit exponents - an overabundance.

A pipe dream. I think the most recent find was pretty darn lucky.

I think the more annoying part is that had it been found immediately this thread would not exist because there'd be no reason for it.
