Hello, long-time user but first-time poster.

My current settings are that I HAVEN'T given PrimeGrid permission to report primes under my name. The automated email option is also unchecked. These were, I believe, the default options.

What would happen if my user account were to find a prime? Would I receive an email giving me the chance to change my options, or would I simply never find out?

Yes, you'd receive an email. It would contain details on how to report the prime yourself and would also give you the option to turn on automatic reporting. If you did turn on reporting at that time, we'd report the previously found prime.

The only thing we report to the Top 5000 Primes page is your first and last name. They don't even get your email address (they get ours). I've got automatic reporting turned on - it's much easier than reporting it myself. It's surprisingly convoluted the way the Top5K site is set up, or at least I think so.

Thanks for this reply.

I won't miss out, then, on having primes reported, as long as I check my email?

I would recommend that you check the box to allow PrimeGrid to report on your behalf. Also, check the box to send an email when that occurs (just so that you know it happened; you won't get spammed). It all works fine; nice and automatic. Yes, you have to provide your real name, but if you were to report primes yourself, you'd have to do that anyway.

I say the above as a satisfied user, and not an administrator.

Cheers,

The work to report it yourself is not necessarily intuitive. There are several steps. By having the automated recording of the prime, it is a lot easier. Either way, you and Primegrid get credited for finding the prime.

I can find any prime I have found on the list and all of mine have been automatically reported.

I am a long time user, and non-admin of the project do recommend you allow the automated reporting. I have seen many people miss the emails because they end up in SPAM folders (which some people auto delete without checking), or email systems than lost the email.

I'd also heartily recommend turning on automatic reporting. You can't just report a prime. You first have to create a prime finder record, then a proof code record (which it seems like everyone gets wrong at least once). Only then can you report the prime, which has to make sense for that proof code. All our notification emails come from steamworks@primegrid.com. If you have auto-reporting and email notification on, the email looks like this:




Dear Primefinder,

Congratulations! Our records indicate that a computer registered by you has found a unique prime number. This computer is running BOINC, is attached to the PrimeGrid project, and is assigned to the Proth Prime Search. What makes this prime unique is that it's large enough to enter the Top 5000 List in Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database.

Since you have auto-reporting selected, the following prime was submitted on your behalf:

Added 116933 : 7345*2^1236280+1 (372162 digits)

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us and we will surely resolve any problems.

Once again, congratulations on your find! Thank you for participating in PrimeGrid.

The real question, in my mind, is "Why wouldn't someone want us to report automatically for them?"

There's a few reasons I'm aware of. If none of these apply to you, you should have automatic reporting turned on.

* You don't want the primes reported under your name at all, or don't want small primes (e.g., under a million digits) reported under your name.

* You already have reported primes outside of PrimeGrid and therefore already have an account the the Top 5000 site. We won't have the password to that account and won't be able to add more primes.

* Some other reason I haven't thought of. I'd like to know what those reasons are, if you're willing to share.

You are, or course, free to decide you don't want us to automatically report for you for any reason, or for no reason at all.

I too have auto reporting turned ON and can confirm the letter above is very similar to my last one, the format is the same but the details were for my unit not the one listed. It is FUN and EXCITING to know your crunching pays off in finding something and to then get an email of your success AND get it reported for you is just icing on the cake!

* Some other reason I haven't thought of. I'd like to know what those reasons are, if you're willing to share.



When my first primes were found at PG, auto reporting did not exist. So I got used to doing it manually and sort of enjoy it (despite the cumbersome nature of some aspects of the lists/reporting system).

Also, I have had trouble with spam filters in my accounts in the past (not general problems that most experience, but specific ones related to the ineptitude of an element of the university IT staff here). Even if I miss an e-mail, if I have manual reporting turned on, I am more likely to get a PM from someone who has noticed that I haven't reported yet. If I didn't have this particular concern that is unusual (and maybe even unique), I would have turned on auto reporting long ago.

EDIT: ...and yes, I know that it would get reported automatically, but if the spam filter got it, then I wouldn't be aware of the find.

When my first primes were found at PG, auto reporting did not exist. So I got used to doing it manually and sort of enjoy it (despite the cumbersome nature of some aspects of the lists/reporting system)

EDIT: ...and yes, I know that it would get reported automatically, but if the spam filter got it, then I wouldn't be aware of the find.


This is why I asked the question. Do you think it would be useful or beneficial if the auto-reporting email also sent a PM in case of an errant spam filter?

I think that would be a great idea, assuming it is not too difficult to put in place.
