Opencaching NODE_IDs

enThis articles is published in english for ease of understanding and use by any Opencaching user, developer or node admin.

What are NODE_IDs?

Each Opencaching website (called node) must have a unique NODE_ID number.
This allows [in theory] the nodes to potentially exchange data like caches, users, logs, etc.

Each new website (node) must choose a unique, unassigned, NODE_ID.
Traditionally, NODE_IDs have been assigned by OCDE (Germany) management team.
