Developers: Get Ready For 5-Digit Player IDs!

(This entry is meant for customers who use our Developer’s Program.  If you don’t, feel free to ignore this message.)

Since day one, has relied on 4-digit player ids.  As those of you who have worked with our developer’s program might know, we are now close to filling up the available space of 4-digit player ids – we’ve recently added player id 9481.  Based on past player additions, we’re anticipating that we’ll get to player id 9999 sometime within the next 12 months.

Once we use up player id 9999, we’ll start using 5-digit player ids:  10000, 10001, 10002 and so on.  We’re starting internal work now in preparation for player ids being either 4 or 5 digits long.

If you’re currently a developer who is storing our player ids in your database, we definitely recommend that you start preparing as soon as possible for 5-digit player ids from the system.

Our goal is to complete the internal work and testing we need to do for this milestone here in the next few months, and then sometime early this summer, publish a dummy 5-digit player id to make sure we’ve got everything in order for “real” 5-digit player ids!

As always, please submit a support ticket to us if you have any questions or concerns about this.
