Default TPS Hall of Fame

This thread is used for recognizing people who have made a substantial contribution to the project. It also records days when the project has had an unusually large amount of activity.

Individuals can earn medals by meeting the listed requirements for each medal. These medals are like Primegrid badges, except that they don't show up below a user's post count. There's also a contest to see which team will be the first to test a million candidates on the PRPNet server. Along the way, three intermediate milestones are listed - one at 250,000 candidates, one at 500,000 candidates, and one at 750,000 candidates.

TPS medals:
Super Siever: Achieve a score of 10,000,000 or greater on the variable-n range sieve subproject.
Member(s): gribozavr, cipher, and Lennart
Tenacious Tester: LLR at least 123,456 k/n pairs on the PRPNet server.
Member(s): Lennart
Hungry Hunter: Find 50 or more primes in the variable-n range. The primes can be found on the PRPNet server, on the LLRNet server, and/or through manual reservations.
Member(s): Lennart
Peak Performer: Get first place in a TPS rally, or place in the top three in at least three TPS rallies.
Member(s): Lennart
MVC (Most Valuable Cruncher): Collect all four TPS medals.
Member(s): Lennart

The race to one million:
250,000 tests: PrimeSearchTeam on September 17, 2011
500,000 tests: Team ??? on date ???
750,000 tests: Team ??? on date ???
1,000,000 tests: Team ??? on date ???

Most productive days:
Code:
Rank          Date                  Pairs tested
1         September 20, 2011           58,263
2         September 18, 2011           47,327
3         September 19, 2011           47,255
4         September 21, 2011           46,162
5         January 16, 2011             29,961

You just got a score of over 10,000,000 on the sieve subproject (equivalent to sieving 2000T for a 5K n-range), so you got all four TPS medals. Congrats again
