I was curious how successful/lucky I was in various sub-projects.
The current information "Percentage of tests resulting with a prime" isn't very meaningful, because a) tested numbers increase over time and so does the expected prime probability; b) PPS & GFN combine different sub-sub-projects which compounds this.
So, I thought Prime score by credit would be a more accurate and stable metric:
Credit(C): Credit in a sub-project
Prime score(PS): Sum of the prime score in a sub-project (Double the score of any double-checker prime to get the actual prime score because being IF/DC shouldn't be a factor here)

SGS: 16265.71 C/PS
GFN: 14068.13 C/PS
PPS: 2930.77 C/PS

I'd be interested to see those figures from other users. Ideally of course would be the PG-wide average value of different sub-projects (Total credit in a sub-project divided by total prime score of primes found in a sub-project).

For PPS as a whole - 77064 tasks, 8 primes, 5 firsts
For SGS - 105549 tasks, 12 primes, 9 firsts
For GFN - 159382 tasks, 7 primes, 6 firsts

I am waiting on a GFN-17 first which will take it to 8 primes and 7 firsts
I have found PPS, PPSE and DIV but not Mega

@Nick: The figures you posted are Primes/Tasks which is precisely the metric I am "criticizing". But I took the trouble and calculated your current credit/prime_score:
PPS: 10458.10 C/PS
GFN: 79196.17 C/PS
SGS: 5257.26 C/PS

To avoid confusion here's how I got to these figures:
In PPS you have a prime score of 856.315 and credit of 8955431, 8955431/856.315 = 10458.10 C/PS

I am really sorry - I didn't understand.
I have been focusing on firsts per hour for PPS-Mega
