Thank you jcsnider for explanation of encryption of password mysql.


I managed to create the login logic for my Node.JS web application.


Now I'm trying to figure out the sign up logic.

How is the Id for new accounts produced? Is there any formula?

I can see that pattern is 8 characters + dash + 4 characters + dash + 4 characters + dash + 4 characters + dash + 12 characters = 36 characters








If I do not follow this kind of pattern, would the new accounts be unaccessible in the game?


Link is my login logic (sorry for poor code, this is learn by doing)
