Where's your site?
 
I have a similar story. I developed my proof of the Extended Midy's Theorem back in 2004. When I first did a search for anything similar, in 2003, I didn't find anything. By the time I completed it (2004), I had some open questions at the end that I couldn't resolve, I searched the web again and came across Brian Ginsberg's name in one of the MAA magazines. I bought that magazine to see if he'd beaten me to it, but he had only proven it for three equal parts. I submitted mine to the MAA, but it was rejected for not being an article. Someone here at CP must have seen it on my website and added it to Wikipedia soon after (I've always had a PDF and LaTex copy on my website). A month later, a few different, but mathematically identical, proofs came up for generalizing the original theorem like I did. Last year, my name and PDF link were removed from Wikipedia for not being a published work (I'm still in the history pages) and references to other people's works appeared instead. I tried posting it to arXiv, but you need references for that site. It sucks seeing other people's names in lights when you know you came first. Sigh | :sigh:
