    I want to ask you guys and arn a question. I see rankings (if thats what you call them) next to some peoples screen names. Like if I am correct dukestreet has one. And on some names next to it I see like ummm... "Moderator" or "Demi-God" How does one get these titiles? I'd sure like to know. What are the duties/responsibilities of these people. I would really like to know. Maybe I can be one one day :) The problem is I'm at school most of the day so I can't keep my eyes on the fourms 24/7, but who can, besides arn that is. :D

    Well, Demi-God/Goddess is simple -- you just have to contribute.

    Moderator status is covered in the FAQ.

    Demi-God=someone who has contributed to MR (buying something off the MR store site)

    The chips used in the old classic and up macs are called the Motorola 68000 series Macs used the 68000, 68020, 68030, and 68040. If I missed one please let me know. Is it true that these are what these numbers represent in the titles?

    Actually, they start with the first Apple -- the Apple I -- which used the 6502 processor.

    See this post for more details.

    The processor designations just keep increasing as the post counts increase. jefhatfield is the highest poster who is not a Demi-God, and he is currently a 68040.
