    Welcome to the 'tar group!

    Is it just me, or do the G4's seem a little squashed?

    Actually the pinnacle of MacRumors is becoming a demi-God by contributing to the site...(hint, hint):D

    You can go here and buy a mug, or if you don't want to do that, just send arn some money. I opted for the mug, its actually quite nice, good quality and large size, for that bigger cup-o-joe.....

    Well, I for one used more forceful methods. I helped badger beej into Demi-Godness and one or two others. Still haven't had any luck with jefhatfield though:( badgering, taunting, you name it, tried it all, and others did to. Maybe you should go give it a try, straw and camel you know....

    Grokgod, being a demi-god doesn't entitle you to an avatar. You know that, right? It does howerever allow you to see what we're saying about everyone else behind the curtains of the private forums ;) :p

    So, buy a mug, tell arn about it, and you're in!

    I love the mug, I'm using it right now, actually. But I think arn should opt for allowing any item to be bought, regardless of what it is, which means prices would go up. But he could offer them as 2 different types, non-membership purchases and membership purchases....

    re: items

    true...it should not matter so much what it is that one gets...

    but the contributor's price of $30...that's where it makes a difference...

    so as being a Demi-God....have u considered contributing again later down the line?

    Membership only last a year. I'll more than likely get v2 of the mug. I have really started to get involved in the site (duh!) so I'll continue to set a good example, its the least I can do..

    What about you?
