Post The official 15kSearch forum is moving

The new forum is located here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/15kSearch/
///Under re-construction///

Q. What does this mean for this forum?
A. This forum may continue as it is, and it has the permission of the project's leader. It's not expected that everyone, will want to visit a new forum.

Moderators can join the group, and continue as moderators at the new forum, if desired.

This forum is much better, because of the thread structure...all replys on one site and so on... and having 2 forums will lead into confusion...

This does not sound like an official move and I will only announce it on the DC info forum site if the project leader specifically comes forward and says so.

The project leader has come forward, and sent you a message at your site, verifying his identity. Please change the link.

I sent the notice to Kirk who does the actual site changes by hand. He'll get to it as soon as he can.

Me, and I beleive a great majority of serious 15k crunchers are staying here and will continue the projects underway.

Our site is www.15k.org and the forum associated with the project is this one, "15k Search" on Mersenneforum.

"L9_", "TTn" and other incarnactions of Shane are free to do whatever they want. Running an "official forum" with no members can certainly be fun

"DC info forum" is also free to do and list whatever they want. I believe that the majority of our new users come from GIMPS and other projects on Mersenneforum not by way of any other web site.

Now instead of wasting time on this, let's go and find some primes.

The next time I hear from Kirk, I will tell him that I agree that most people will not use the Yahoo forum and stay here.

You're incorrect by the project's descriptive definition.
Please see the 15k project at the database:
http://primes.utm.edu/bios/page.php?lastname=15k

This forum is not following the definition to find n, that produce many primes.
The official forum associated with the project is here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/15kSearch/

The project is looking for k, not n, that produce many primes.

And that's exactly what we are doing, searching for primes for promising valuse of k. Thus, k=2995125705 has been checked to n=800k, k=210885 to n=536k, and k=355424355 to n=480k and many primes were found. All three are in progress. Furthermore many other values of k have been checked by individual members.

You never took part in above team efforts, and in fact I cannot remember when have you suggested a new k, or found any reportable 15k*2^n-1 prime. Certainly not in last 6-7 months, maybe more. Then you come from nowhere and announce that the forum is moving!! Well, I don't want to be treated in this manner. Therefore I'm staying here and will continue searching for 15k primes. But if you continue to misbehave I'll consider other options.

I think who ever started the project has the right to decide which forum will be used. But if the project moves to yahoo groups alot of users will be lost. So I recommend staying here, but it is TTn's decision to take. In any case let the admins know about the move so the threads can be archived.

Good luck in either case,
Citrix
