    Can I newly assigned a user ID?
    Is user 5 deleted, can I now assign this ID a new user?

    Could I give the user ID 5 in the database the user 598?

    Why are you wanting to do this?

    Simply because of the order.

    Just here to change the ID? Is that even if the deleted ID already had posts?

    Can ID put so back the deleted user, where do I change just the user_id in the database?

    No have over 500 registrations this but nearly 100 users in a forum only, would like to just have the ID continuously.

    There's absolutely no benefit to having a continuous run of user IDs. You'd be better off using you time more constructively on enhancing other aspects of your site that would benefit users than to try and solve a non-issue that gives them no benefit. :)

    It is clear to me that it brings no advantage. Would it just like so. Will try it if it goes.

    The user from 589 to ID 5 to change that makes the user a new is and that the name, email, etc is already taken, so just don't, too bad.
