    The to be announced forums appeared earlier this week, causing speculation into new products happening at the World Wide MacRumors Seista.

    A mysterious MacBytes began posting inside this forum while other motals did some background checks on him, revealing a new user with admin powers that had a 0 post count despite posting in the closed forum multiple times.

    Threads began in the community and private boards as to whether the moderators had anything to do with it, and everytime the mods were questioned they always answered with cryptic messages.

    Meanwhile a very high ranking and well loved user, Wardofsky, decided to try out www.MacBytes.com to see if anything could be found.
    He was fronted with "...we're working on it..."

    Then a leak occured, MacBytes had posted in the New Mac Apps forum which was immediately picked up by a user, which promptly saw the post be taken down by MacRumors Legal.

    The forum was then opened to Demi-Gods and Contributors for them to absorb in what they had speculated over in the previous days, basking in their higher privileges.

    The forum was opened to the public recently sporting "MacBytes.com News Discussion" which indeed did have a link with MacBytes.com that Wardofsky had researched earlier.

    MacBytes.com is thought to have a direct connection with Arn's request for talented photoshop artists to do an aqua theme for a "new site".

    Earlier rumors of a G6 turned out not to be true, along with a chit-chat style forum.

    G6's where reported earlier Sunday morning by a MacRumors insider (name disclosed) but where ruled false when the World Wide MacRumors Seista was only going to introduce "Forum Updates".

    The original leak had incorrect information but the correct headr sporting "The worlds first MacBytes.com forum".

    G5 powerbooks are thought to be on delay for MacRumors Seista San Francisco as there is trouble with a looped "Spamming" bug that repeats "New powerbooks on Tuesday" continuously until shut down by force.

    The wrap up made me more confused ....

    When I posted in site news about a to be annonced that turned into macbytes?

    and I was screwed out of knowing this because I wasn't a demi or mod/admin?

    This is kinda getting me annoyied...

    It's just for fun.

    The tobeannounced forum turned into the MacBytes forum and this wrap-up was posted ages ago in the private forum and then the community forum.

    It's nothing seious but a MacRumors style wrap-up.
