I believe I have come up with a new formula for a certain combinatorial sequence. Is it considered safe to ask whether my result is actually new on MSE? I mean "safe" in the sense that no one could claim the result for themselves.

P.S. I also don't currently have a proof that my sequence indeed matches the one in question for general $n$.

Thanks.

• In this question, someone got an original idea about a new kind of formula. With some work I conjectured and then proved that there was something indeed. The proof is mine, but without the OP sharing their ideas I would never had even remotely thought about that. So sharing is also a way to make maths progress a lot faster. As a civilization, that's what we should be aiming at instead of worshipping individualism. Sharing is one of the hearts of MSE. – Arnaud Mortier Aug 1 at 23:17
