The project I took over from another developer had a contact form with 27 inputs named as this:

form1, form2, form3, form4, form5, form6...

The PM asked me to make the form more "accessible" somehow.

Note: The inputs were not ordered by their numeric names, the first input was named form16 and second was form9.

    When we request a new field be added to jira, it is always added as "customfield_87643". All that ever varies is the five numbers. So, we have to store what each field actually is, somewhere else, and keep that in mind when we write apps to talk to jira.
