When I look at a WU that ultimately proved to be a prime, like 470603528, I see the entry "Is prime? 2597452424367*2^1290000-1 is prime!!!". If I look at a completed & verified WU that is not a prime, this entry is missing. So far so good...

Then there is the Pending Credit page with all my completed WUs waiting for verification by the double checker. But neither the WU page nor the result page generated by my host give any indication if any of them are prime candidates.

Wouldn't it be great if the lines on the Pending Credit page for WUs that my host thought were primes were marked somehow, like with an asterisk or bold type or whatever, to indicate their "prime candidate" status?

Or, is there a reason why that is hidden, including not having any indication I could find in the Result page from my host for that WU, like way too many times a host reports a WU indicating a prime which later turns out to be false?

Just a thought...

That information is intentionally suppressed. We want to avoid any public indication of whether a number is prime until after it's already reported. We don't want anyone to have an opportunity to "steal" a prime that they didn't crunch themselves.

Furthermore, because of the way the calculations work, with certain of the subprojects it's possible that calculation errors will cause a false prime indication. I don't want people seeing "you've got a prime coming!" in that pending list, only to have it mysteriously vanish when it's proven wrong. It's just more work for Jim and I when we've got to go and respond to the inevitable "Where'd my prime go?!?" queries.
