Dynamic UID (v. drunk post)

so i've had this idea: why not make UIDs dynamic?

the info says 140 something K registered, but we'll soon hit the 400k noob mark.
Why not let UID's expire, say, after 5 years idle, and then move all other uid's -1 down?

That way, having a low uid would mean being active on genmay for ages, and a high would scream noob (like mine) (lurker for a long time - from the time when reg was closed)

It would put some prestige into having a low uid again (active, long term poster) IMO

I remember getting flak for being a 14k

A lower UID won't make you a quality/content-filled poster. Make good threads and UID doesn't matter.

Yeah great idea, because large databases don't run on numbers and shit so let's change 'em all around daily.

everyone knows 40k is top of the bell curve, where for a scant moment the fail of <39k and 41k> was forgotten in a magnificent moment of 40k win.
