User ID = 999999999?
I have recently integrated a bbpress install with an existing wordpress blog/site. The WP blog had three users prior to the integration, and all three made it over to the bbpress install with no problems. However, today a new user registered on the WP side and her ID defaulted to 999999999.
I proceeded to register a “dummy” user, just to see what happened. The next registration ticked up to user ID #1000000000. While I doubt that this will lead to any serious problems, it seems silly to me to have user IDs starting around ONE BILLION, when even 1,000 would be plenty high enough for my lil’ ol’ site. Having McDonald’s-esque “XX billions served” sized numbers seems to fly in the face of the “Code is poetry” mantra.
Any ideas as to what’s going on here?
