Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have noticed that user IDs 6 and 7 are not in use! Where can I request to change my user ID to one of these?

Heh, clever! Ohh man, this could be a trophy for deserving users! Like for mods, or high-rep users. Like for example, sympathetic high-rep users from southern Germany. – Pëkka Feb 17 '12 at 20:17
Can I get id -1 in that case? – Oded Feb 17 '12 at 20:18
If you're going to post links, you could at least get the second one right. – ChrisF Feb 17 '12 at 20:18
@Oded I think Community might have something to say about that – Michael Mrozek Feb 17 '12 at 20:19
@Oded - dibs on -2 – ChrisF Feb 17 '12 at 20:19
@MichaelMrozek - I would hope that Oded knows that by now. – ChrisF Feb 17 '12 at 20:19
@MichaelMrozek - Fair point. If Community won't give it up, I'd like to get 0 (then you will have to realise the truth - there is no id). – Oded Feb 17 '12 at 20:20
Would you also like a Beta badge with that? – Oded Feb 17 '12 at 20:24
Could I then have some of this guy's rep? He seems to have too much anyway. – Bart Feb 17 '12 at 20:29

This isn't currently done and there are no plans to add this as a feature.

You'll have to just enjoy the userid you got when you signed up. There is a 6 and a 7 in it! :)

Wow! I didn't know that there's already a 6 and 7 in my own ID! Seems like I don't need those individual IDs anymore! thank you Anna! ;) – Meysam Feb 17 '12 at 20:38
@Meysam Any time. ;) – Adam Lear Feb 17 '12 at 20:40

I immediately demand that my user ID be switched with Brad Gilbert's.

You are too leet, the request has already been declined. – Adam Lear Feb 17 '12 at 21:02
