This question may have already been asked, but I could not find an answer. I understand that MacRumors forum users are "promoted" (Demi-God, Member, Regular, Newbie, etc.) by the number of total posts that they make. How come some users are listed as Demi-Gods, but have only recently joined the forums and have minimal postings? Do some people pay money to MacRumors to become Demi-Gods without posting? Thanks in advance.
