    sorry to revive an old thread... but i'm kind of intrigued by the ranks used here... what do the numbers mean? 65816? 65832? 68030? 68040? 603?
    couldn't they be a bit more understandable...
    i mean, when i look at "newbie" i know its a newbie
    when i look at "member", it means his getting the hang of it
    when i look at "regular", it means he's a regular visitor...
    and then, the ranks just go all number-coded... :confused:
    can someone explain?
    and where does it go after G5?

    ^ The numbers indicate processors that Apple has used in the order that they were introduced/used.

    So there was the 68030, then the 68040, and so forth.

    You'll find lots of answers by reading the FAQ:

    I agree. It seems people only read from their post forward, or only posts that are direct responses to their question, and they never bother to read posts that already exist in a thread. That being the case, I figured I'd repost the same info, in hopes that they would actually READ THE FAQ! (It does get frustrating, doesn't it?)

    So true.... it's amazing that so many can spell well enough to post, but not enough to read. Output, but no input!

    Macrumors user rankings

    Just out of curiosity, I've just noticed my user ranking (if that's what it is) has gone from Macrumors regular to Macrumors 6502. I've noticed other numbers around, what are all of the ranks and what is the significance of the different numbers?

    I found the answer you're looking for in the FAQ.


    Edit: I see now this was merged with the older thread. So now Denarius look above. :cool:

    When someone reaches a high enough post count to uncover them.

    It's going to be interesting when we get there, because until the Intel switch, Apple computing power simply increased with each new processor family, and the processor families were rolled out (generally) sequentially with time.

    Now you have different processor families for different purposes, with several families being released around the same time. Putting them in 'order' won't be so easy. I guess the admins will cross that bridge when we get to it!

    I've perused the FAQ, but a couple of related things don't appear clear to me. There are only 5 posts between 65832 and 68000, and similarly between 68010 and 68020.

    Is there some historical Apple or MR significance to this? Did I overlook something?

    If I remember correctly, it is related to the brief lifespan of the processors themselves

    Hopefully, the ones who stay in the forum long enough to achieve such high post counts will be mature enough not to complain about something as trivial as their user title!

    Yeah, this is pretty much correct. The 65832 was supposed to be next in line for the Apple IIgs, but I'm not sure it ever saw the light of day (I don't know much about the Apple II stuff). Apple skipped the 68010 in their line of Macs, although the processors still saw some action in Apple Nubus cards that utilized A/ROSE. I have a Nubus ethernet card with a 68010 on it.
