    So I've spent the past 30 mins. searching the forums looking for the rank structure and have found nothing. Can someone please link me or list the ranks and have it stickied if not already done so?

    Thanks!

    Admittedly, I probably did it subliminally for you :rolleyes:

    So can I resurrect this thread to ask a question? I see some folks posting with the title "Guest"
    How does one attain that title?
    I don't see it listed here.

    That title no longer exists, as Macrumors does not allow guests to post.

    I've only ever seen it on really old posts.

    Guest is a title assigned to users who requested their accounts be canceled.

    The other night I was perusing some very old threads (circa 2007) and ran across the title of "retired." Hadn't seen that one before. How does one obtain it?

    Here is an answer in an older post. I don't think they use "retired" any longer. At least I have not noticed it being used.

    That's correct, Weaselboy. We haven't had any retirements of long-standing members since we moved to the XenForo forum software, so the user title of anyone who retires in the future is undecided. It was a rare situation anyway, handled case by case.

    Don't know if this worth a new thread or not: it seems when we renew our annual MR subscription, it doesn't automatically 're-do' our title. Bug?

    ISTR this also happened in the switch over to the new software but I don't recall how automatic the old version was. In any case, can mine be fixed? I paid yesterday while waiting in line at the Apple Store and I happened to see the alert for it. :)

    You're correct that it's changed, but it's not a bug, just how the system works now. Luckily, it's trivially easy to get the title you want. Details are available in the private forum.

    Congratulations on reaching 4000 posts. I happen to think that 4096 is a better number (powers of two beat multiples of powers of ten), and you'll reach that post count shortly. :)

    Can someone comment on renewing subscriptions? Does it have to expire before it will give the option to resubscribe?

    You'll get a reminder, then you get a few days to renew it before it reverts to standard membership.
