Default If you find a twin prime...

...PM me and e-mail Chris Caldwell (He's the creator of the prime pages. See http://primes.utm.edu/ and scroll to the bottom for his e-mail). Do NOT inform anyone else yet.

The reason for this is that I don't want someone else seeing that ?*2^195000-1 and ?*2^195000+1 are twin primes. That person may just submit it by himself to the prime pages, which means that he/she gets the credit. The actual person who found the prime and the project won't get any credit

If you find a non-twin prime, continue to post in the "primes found" thread. You don't need to e-mail/PM me or Caldwell.

It would be better if someone checks all the k's reported as primes by the users; otherwise whoever could claim false primes.

I checked all of the primes in the "primes found" thread already, and I also confirmed that they weren't twin.
