The second step was to set up a version of the OEIS which would run autonomously on a commercial web site, operating as a moderated wiki, and controlled by a board of editors. Unfortunately, 18 months ago we discovered that the standard mediawiki software was incapable of handling the kind of queries that the OEIS generates. This problem seemed unsurmountable, and I had almost given up hope that it would ever be solved.
But thanks to the enormous efforts of Russ Cox, who has completely rewritten all the OEIS software, the new OEIS was launched on Nov 11 2010. David Applegate has also been of great help in getting the new system working. At the time of the launch, the OEIS contained 180284 sequences. This means that after 46 years, I no longer have to process every single contribution to the database. Thank you, Russ and Dave: you have saved the OEIS!
The URL for the new OEIS is oeis.org. I recommend that before using it, you first register at oeis.org/wiki. When you get issued a password, go to the main page and login with the same user name and password.
Now when you look at a sequence, you will see "history" and "edit" buttons next to the "graph" and "listen" buttons. The "edit" button lets you edit the sequence. To submit a new sequence, use the "Submit new seq." link at the bottom of any sequence page. All contributions will be reviewed by the editors (if you would like to help by becoming an editor, let me know - we need more editors!).
