    ok I was having a look round the site instead of working and just wondered how some members have a join date before arn. Surely he was the first member????

    This is a hold over from how the site evolved. There was a very early comments system before the main forum was set up. When the forum was started the registrations were carried over (along with their start date) and at this time I believe arn created his official account as a poster.

    I may be wrong with what I have said as I am going from memory from what I was told before as I wasn't around at that time.

    arn and blakespot worked together to create macrumors and often work together on other projects toucharcade being their most recent venture.

    Correct. Some of the accounts have their vBulletin creation dates, while some have the dates from the earlier forum system.
