Ehm.. and why is that a problem?this is btw not a support forum. Use ipsbeyond instead or open a support ticket.
I understand where you are coming from (it would be "neater" to have the Id's matching the number of members), but it isn't very practical.1. It would require a pretty complex rebuild script to get updated in the first place. Depending on the size of the board and number of missing entries, running such a script could be very resource consuming and take forever!2. The same rebuild script would be required every time an account was removed from the board. Not good.3. Profile URLs would be changing all the time. Especially annoying for those who link to it from elsewhere.4. Some admins (might be just me) currently use the ACP member search via member ID and over time recognise/remember certain member Id's which speeds up the task (e.g you know which ID to search for without obtaining that information first). This would no-longer be the case.In conclusion: Aesthetically it might be better, but as far as practicality is concerned it fails in many areas.A no from me, sorry :)
This simply will not ever occur I'm afraid. Sorry.
Awww, c'mon, surely you can change the entire way user registrations are done just to make those numbers match up, can't you? :lol:
It's a joke. What you're suggesting would involve a complete overhaul of the user registration system, it is not feasible at all. You're going to have to just live with those numbers not matching.
The id numbers mean absolutely nothing on the front end - ignore them, PLEASE. They are an internal way of tracking records in a database and nothing more. They do not (and are not intended to) correlate to the number of records IN the database, just to a specific record stored in the database.
tell me, how to make that?? :wub:
