Hello h4mza

Because members at times get banned.. or make more than one account and then extras are removed.. and various other reasons :thumbsup: Not to mention the spammers LOL

Or the several thousand unvalidated accounts in the last 5 plus years. Once an account is created validated or not, the member number increments. So even if the account is ultimately deleted as not being validated, that 'slot' and member number has been used. So member number and registered member numbers do not coincide. Hope that clarifies a bit more beyond what Pandy has explained very well. Thank you for your question. I am sure many other members have wondered the same thing. Welcome to BleepingComputer.
