    2. What does "QC" stand for?

    3. What was jefhatfield's original user name?

    4. How many original forums were there?

    Well I know 4 out of 5...

    Let me add another:

    (fake) Name three appropriate names that rhyme with job's original username. If you message (or even post) any of the names I am thinking of, you get a bonus point for each one. :D

    (1) Which aussie forum member constantly changed avatars when he had around 1000 posts?

    (2) Which Macrumors forum poster is the only one to spam the boards with well over 240 posts in a period of three days?

    (3) What is the name of the PC troll, who:
    >was proud of using a PC
    >made only PC pro posts
    >lived in the location of "buthole"
    >and likes to have anal sex with chicken and other barnyard animals?
    (This is all one person, as freaky as that sounds.)

    (2) Didn't he continue his rampage at another members board, while also starting his own failed attempt at his own forum that quickly attracted trolls from here, only to be taken private and die?

    Something like that...

    Well, sort of. His "attempt" isn't a failure.

    I have absolutely no idea.

    I can think of a few 'tars that have been a bit risque (the cat avatar), a few odd ones (freaky tadpole anyone?), but not one stands out.

    Give us a hint. ;)

    i couldnt stand that guy man. always posting all this pc news and just generally baiting everyone. grrr.

    i think the jefhatfield thing is a trick question. IIRC jefhatfield IS his original name, but he used a different one for a while after his posts became TOO prolific.

    and the avatar, that was the sexy shiny one right? yeah that started a craze. personally i think b2tm's was the best.

    5. Who is the other admin of Macrumors?

    I thought that arn was the only administrator. This if the first time that I have heard of this subject. I will admit that I don't know any of the answers. Could someone PM the answer to #5?

    ROFL, ive never read a post of his but that character sounds hilarious (in a worrying 'league of gentlemen' way). The idiot couldnt even spell butthole properly. Strange, from the sound of him thats probably where he hid his fingers.

    Spikey got into arguments with 3-ish people, not one. He didnt leave, he got banned, he found the forum lacking in a sense of humour. So he went out in a blaze of flaming.

    Well I am rather stupid with these quiz things, and I don't remember most of the answers.
    However I do know who was the other Admin. Blackspot was the other Admin, he did most of the story approving.

    Does anyone remember the old icons MR used for Games? OS X?

    Yay! One I know the answer to! :D

    And, to make this post slightly more worthwhile, what was Mr Anderson's old username?

    I believe it was Blakespot, not Blackspot.
