I am number 61

Recommended Posts

Only out of curiosity....

 

In the original forums, I was number 32. Now I am member number 61.

 

Even Flouncy is a 45, and some dude called "Ben Mansill" is 44

 

I figure that all mods and gods were imported into the new DB first, so picked up all the low ID numbers - so that's cool - then the remainder of the member's table.

 

But there are number of member IDs which don't seem to exist.

 

Where did they go?

 

What happen?

I'm not sad, or alarmed. Nor miffed. I was previously 11, which was cool, mainly and as would be obvious to all, that this is a cool tribute to Paul Sironen, who was also number 11.

 

But now I'm a Colt 45. POW!

Hiya Flouncy !!!!

 

Yep, have no issue with what my number is either. Could be 10000 for all it matters.

 

I was more curious about the missing numbers.

I am number 12064. Previously 150somethingsomething.

 

I'm still not a Hero though....

Some day, Tak. Some day.

 

I was one, once.

 

TwoTwo was one too.

If I recall correctly, the pantheon posted somewhere here around go-live day, indicating that in the process of bringing us all across to the new system, a number of accounts were given the arse (spambots and the like). So some of us dropped a few places. On the other hand, however, some of the lower UIDs increased due to the creation of some new test/dev accounts.

 

I'll see if I can dig up the thread, gimme a sec...

 

edit: okies, this is a thread that mentions the changes. Look for posts made by nizmow, there's a couple that explain the discrepancies.

I know some have gone down, but up seems odd!?

Can't explain that one.

 

A few of us mods managed to get roped into some pre-live checking on the forums (let's not go there) hence why I dropped rather dramatically.

And there was a cull of users that were banned and under 20 posts or something round that number, based on the assumption they were spammers/dicks/alts or whatever.

and I think some may have been deleted, hence the gaps.

 

The ones going up maxxie will be the V1 folks who aren't Gods/Mods as they will have been uploaded with the majority...

A few (like 30 or so) low number IDs were reserved by the dev guys before the import was done (don't know why but they were), that's why there are some "empty" UserIDs, and why people like Ben and yourself PhR33X have risen by more than just the number of devs and mods who were testing before V3 went live. Hope that makes sense.

Speaking of user numbers........Where do you find them if you have a thread open?

Click your name and put your mouse over "View Member Profile" or whatever it is. Look at where the hyperlink goes.
