Thanks for pointing that out. I just copied some stuff over from a wordpress
database which was using bigint so I figured it was best for this situation.
Turns out that int or smallint is much better.

Not directly related, but I was surprised by this column choice of BIGINT.

Are you really going to have 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 possible categories
of data?
