What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

How are User IDs calculated in the Stack Exchange Network? On Super User, a user might have an ID of 3568 and on Stack Overflow, might have an ID of 4924...How does this work?

Thanks!

The rest are the team and the few that beat me.

Look at any parent site's user page and sort it by oldest, you'll see that the user numbers are sequential. –  Neil Fein Oct 2 '10 at 17:23
