Thanks PM!

One other thing: Wikipedia seems to not bother whether people write "Prime" or "prime". Why can't MW be the same way?

So far great work, people!

MW will capitalise the first letter, so "mersenne prime" and "Mersenne prime" are equivalent. Other than that it is case sensitive.

We do have a number of errors or mistakes in the links, but as time goes past I believe we'll fix them.

I don't really know what happens here

On the other hand, Xyzzy, has enabled image uploading

Is it possible to post "Latex-like" expressions on Mersennewiki?

LaTex "like", but not LaTex, if you see what I mean. Use the tag <math> put your formula here </math>. The easisest way to see how to do something is to go to wikipedia, they have a comprehensive help page with advice on how to post math. It is well worth reading this as how your post comes out depends on your "User preferences" set in mersennewiki. IOW, become a user first (log on is in the top right of the screen), set your preferences, then post maths.

The math renderer on the wiki is the same one we use here, not the one that ships by default with the wiki...

How about redirects? For instance, we could redirect "Prime" to "Prime Number".

Also, for the benefit of the contributors, could we create a page that lists all the stubs?
