Sure, this site, like most others, has way more registered users than "active" users. Folks come and go. But, to John's point, they all require a unique identifier in the database.... unless you start deleting inactive users.

Just one: you!

Go to "Who's Online" at the top of the page. 256 actually viewing the site right now. That is quite a few for this time of day. More is common. There would be a lot of overlap of names even at 256........

Or we could just add another letter at the end of a name to differentiate. You know, like "EDD" and so on.............EDDD, EDDDD
