How Do You Choose a User ID or a Group ID in Linux?

Problem scenario
You are configuring UID and GID values in Linux. You want to have some idea of what values to use. What ranges should you target?

Use an integer between 3000 and 4999 (inclusive) if you have no other requirements. This range is recommended. To learn more about why this range is recommended, see this external posting.
