If you're interested in helping out, here's a list of what we do. Or all the things we can think of. It's a work in progress: https://primegrid.fandom.com/wiki/PrimeGrid_administrator_responsibilities

SHEESH, I knew it was a lot, but that could be entire line of employment! A miracle you haven't lost your marbles years ago..

You had better still be around to answer questions in the signature Magic Mike™ long winded format <3

With my limited knowledge, the (official) subproject that finds the smallest primes would be the Sophie Germain Search and the GFN-15 search, running on CPU and GPU respectively.
I personally enjoy SGS, it's a very good way for my older machines to find primes, and there's a very small chance a prime you find could be a twin prime, which you get a cool badge for discovering.

My goals aren't very complicated: get all badges up to Ruby, and find a mega prime. Probably not possible in just one year, but hey, you can dream!

I'm also trying to get a few of my peers interested in prime finding, though it's been mostly futile. I can't tell if I haven't told them enough, or if they think I'm too much of a nerd to listen ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I have no idea about this, I would say your best bet is to reserve some small ranges and play around with it in the downtime :)

Also, while Googling a bit, I found a neat bit reading, maybe some folks can get something out of this (because I sure can't :S)

8) Message boards : General discussion : Split forum posts into pages? (Message 136249)
Posted 691 days ago by Profile RussEfarmerProject donor
Some of the older threads on the site get REALLY long, and at times it becomes a pain to know what's going on in a thread because everything is just in a big list. Some other forums I use split posts into pages and have options to set how many posts to see per page, and it honestly makes things much easier to navigate, since you can read through threads more like a book and remember what page you're on instead of remembering one post in a single big line.

Has this been considered before, or is it even possible? Or is it already an option and I can't read? I'd love to know.
