I did not mean to offend anyone; it's just that my OCD tracks every assignment and result I have so I have my counts handy. Unless others tell me their factor found counts I can't add them.
That said, I could get a very close estimate by checking the count differential over a defined time period.
Accepting the fact that the count could not differentiate between TF, P-1, ECM, P+1 factors.
I've done this for a few other COMPLETE ranges.

I am sorry for my words. I did not mean to offend anyone either. (Sincere apologies if I misused these emotional words in English, as I rarely speak the language in real life)

Thanks for editing the list on post #1.
For the 8.1M range, I have tracked TF, P-1 and P+1, and found that the 102 exponents newly factored are all done by Flaukrotist via P-1. So the number 102 for 8.1M is totally correct now.

For the 1.0M and 9.9M range, I think I am able to check it manually in a few days, distinguishing all TF, P-1, ECM and P+1 factors, and selecting those which were newly factored by P-1. And I will see if these numbers match.

9.9M range checked. 141 exponents newly factored. All of them were factored by P-1 (no ECM or TF or P+1). This number matches the number now shown in post #1.
File can be seen here.

I'd like to know your secret for finding this data.

 2022-08-08, 04:13 #181 DrobinsonPE   Aug 2020 2×71 Posts I am less than a week away from finishing the 4.2M range with only 57 exponents left to test. So far I have found 156 factors in this range and hope that I can get another 4 more by the end of the range. I'll let you know the final count this week. I am planning on continuing on up into the 4.3M range so could you please reserve it for me. I finished 3.8M a while back so you can change it to. 3.8 DrobinsonPE --- COMPLETE (64)

1.0M Checked, The Number 73 Is Correct

1.0M checked. There are 73 exponents newly factored since the release of v30.8. All of them were factored by P-1. This matches the number shown in post #1.
The factoring status in 1.0M is more complicated than that in 9.9M, as factors are found by multiple users. The process can be explained as follows:
Code:
1. Numberwang started P-1'ing in this range from January to March,
with M1011277, M1020751, M1037303, M1046527, M1059209 factored.
But his bounds are too low for the project, roughly B1=100K, B2=2G.

2. axn started P-1'ing from March till June, completing this range with
64 newly factored exponents.

3. Jocelyn factored M1056481 this February.
LordJulius factored M1006237, M1029481, M1009417 this year.

To be honest, I don't have any secret for finding this data. What I have done is actually LOTS of manual work. I do my search in the following three steps:
Code:
1. Go to mersenne.ca PrimeNet visualization tool and compare data
between the most recent and last November. I can get a number
(e.g. +73 Factored). Indeed, this number cannot distinguish P-1 from
TF or ECM...

2. Go to mersenne.org Reports->Detailed Reports->Factors Found,
search for new factors found in the range, between last November and
current day. This can get a detailed "Exponent-Factor-Date" chart.
However, this cannot distinguish P-1 from others, either.

3. Copy the chart you get into a .xls file. Manually open the
"Exponent Status" page for EVERY EXPONENT in the chart, and
check ONE BY ONE whether it is a newly-factored exponent or not,
whether it is factored by P-1 or not.
This requires a lot of work, but it can be done within an hour per range. So it is totally acceptable for me to carry it out.
