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?



I think it's assigned by order, I'm 14 on gaming and I registered just when it went live.

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
