    I just glanced upon the "Congrats mad jew for your 15.000 posts, and there by reaching 604 status" thread, and I read there something about 604e, G3, G4...:eek:

    In this thread, plus in the MR Old Skool forum, it says that arn won't tell anyone, but a selected few, what is above MacRumors 604 (except MacRumors God:D ).

    Don't kill me for asking, but what is above mad jew's status? I dunno if a 605 processor excists, or if it's G3 that's next. (Hail to mad jew when he reaches Core Duo status:D ). Well, is anyone willing to tell.

    If no, just lock this thread, I'm a bit nervous asking this, since the "Congrats mad jew for your 15.00 posts, and there by reaching 604 status" thread got locked...

    I believe there was a 604e. I don't know the processor number names, only g3, g4, g5, core solo, core duo.

    I think it will be 605, to signify the number of times in the past year we've had this discussion. ;)

    In the end, does it really matter? Post count does not relate to one's contributions to the site, although in mj's case, it's not far off.

    Hey we can finally run Windows NT for PPC on mad jew.

    Most of the rest of us are still stuck with Mac OS 9.

    Yes, there was a 604e, it was used in the 7300, 8600 and 9600 series of PowerMacs. However, since there was no 603e or 603ev ranks here on MacRumors, I doubt there will be a 604e ranking....

    G3, G4 and G5 will not be ranks here at MacRumors, as they are the "marketing names", not the processor names themselves. Instead, they would be PowerPC 750 (G3), the 74xx series (G4) and then the 970 series (G5). And then onto the Intel chips! :cool:

    What makes you think that we're not going to use the marketing names? As far as I know, none of the previous processors had marketing names so you can't just say "because you used the model numbers for the others!"

    Please note that I'm not implying that you're right or wrong. This is a neutral post and should not be analysed for clues :)

    Ah, but it would be a prediction for me (or a guess, if you prefer) since I don't know what decisions were made oh-so long ago.... ;)

    Ah, the debate over whether it is a real leak and a true MacRumors Rumor or MacRumors Member Speculation rages on. :cool:

    Well, maybe..... :eek:



    Actually, I was more of the type of kid who would give few ideas in order to make sure I got what I wanted (usually worked too I might ad! :D ). For example, "Mom and Dad, I want a Xbox, these games, and an extra controller for Christmas". :eek: :)

    When I started here, I had no idea what a MR 68020 was. Today I know, but I find it wierd that going from 65832 to 68000 or going from 68010 to 68020 you only need five additional posts. Were these processors not used much, or is it just to make it possible for people to reach higher rankings?

    I hate this "etc....", but why is it that, you become a 601 at 5000 posts, and mad jew became a 604 at 15000 posts. At which posts points do you reach 602 and 603? 7500 and 12500 perhaps? I you remember mad jew, please enlighten us:D

    [​IMG]

    Here is the list going from Newbie to 601. I wonder, since you can only acquire an avatar at 6502 status (500 posts), and though this is not very probable, could a Newbie/Member/Regular recieve the privilege of displaying an avatar if he/she was given Moderator powers?

    I actually agree with Shard, though you can not base this argument on, that marketing names have not been used in pre G3 processor statuses, because there were no such names for them. I still believe though, that it will be the marketing names since "MacRumors G5" sounds IMO cooler than "MacRumors 970". Not to offend the naming of current reached statuses, yet of course, "MacRumors Yonah" or "MacRumors Merom" sounds better than "MacRumors Core 2 Duo"... Please arn! Enlighten us!:D (j/k)

    The 602 was a processor designed for use in game consoles, PDAs etc., so not used in Macs.

    The 603 level is reached at 10,000 posts.

    I don't believe the 65832 was ever actually used either. In fact the chip was never put into production, although it was designed.

    I don't think the 68010 was used either except for aftermarket upgrades, as computer manufacturers held out until the 68020 was ready soon after.

    Edit: Yes, someone with less than 500 posts could be permitted to have an avatar if they are a moderator...longofest is one example, though he's almost up to 500 posts now. A very select few others have been awarded avatar status ahead of time through contests...we haven't had one of those in a while though.

    Why bicker about what's coming next when you can just find out for yourselves...

    *Clicks reply* :p



    Josias, I hit 603 at 10,000 posts, as WildCowboy said. mkrishnan has just recently joined the very exclusive 603 club. :)

    Yup - longofest is a moderator with less than 500 posts, as is knox (who, if I remember correctly was also temporarily a god at one point). I think in both cases they contribute more to the site than posts, and do a lot of work behind the scenes.

    Edit: Oops - just seen your post WildCowboy.
