    if i remember correctly, the order of the top ten posters has changed...i think some names are missing

    did some high posting members quit or get banned?

    besides spikey from the old days?

    and i know the great alphatech went on to start his own site, but he comes back here every now and again

    no there weren't any bannishments, I think vniow is correct. Macrumors got a boost somehow....not sure myself.

    is macrumors an actual person or just an account that blakespot and arn use from time to time?

    aren't arn and blakespot the two who run this site as macrumor gods?

    I think "Macrumors" is the name of the primary vBulletin admin account, which arn (and maybe blackespot) use to post news and stuff.

    correct - it also posts all the submissions to the private submissions board - where arn looks over to see what could possibly be new or interesting.

    it could be that there have been a rash of submissions lately with all the new members and interest in the site that gives macrumors the big jump in posts.....

    I thought it was during the Geek thread fiasco, and when posts got deleted/wastelanded they somehow added to Macrumors' post count.

    Look at the front page items - macrumors does all the posting of the articles.
