    MacRumors has experienced an ever-increasing rate of growth. To continue providing our members with the quality of forums they expect, we are expanding our volunteer staff. It is my pleasure to announce that we have a new MacRumors administrator and four new MacRumors moderators!

    WildCowboy, from the Bay Area in Northern California, is our new administrator. As a member since January 2005 and a moderator for the past year, WildCowboy has shown great organizational skill, leadership, and an understanding of how best to help the site.

    Our new moderators expand our moderation team to keep pace with forum activity, which now routinely exceeds 4000 posts per day.

    In alphabetical order, they are:
    mad jew, from Adelaide, Australia, a member since April 2004

    mkrishnan, from Gainsville, Florida, a member since January 2004

    xUKHCx, from Watford, UK (northwest of the Greater London area), a member since January 2006

    yellow, from Durham, North Carolina, a member since October 2003​
    All four have have been outstanding members of our community, proving help and support to other members on a regular basis. We are very pleased that they have volunteered to help our team of moderators make the MacRumors forums as useful and enjoyable to as many members as possible.

    Please help me thank them for offering their service to our community, and to thank the entire team for their continued efforts on behalf of the site.

    Congrats boys (why aren't there more girly mod types?). Well deserved, except for that Mad Jew guy.

    Darn, now how are we supposed to see what title Mad Jew gets when he crosses 50k posts in a few months. :eek:

    I think that's why they promoted him.

    The forums would crash trying to calculate a title.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, folks...looking forward to helping keep the motor running around here.

    And congratulations to our newest additions to the moderating team. Your model behavior here in the forums and your sizable bribes made you four easy choices.

    They just ruin it for the rest of us, I don't think I can cram that many hookers into a Yugo without having to leave behind the keg of beer.

    Ooooh, he so should still have his processor number thingy in his user title, along with the "(moderator)".

    Congrats all! Great to see these first-rate members join an already stellar staff. Keep up the good work!

    And by good work I mean not banning me.

    <trembles in fear>

    Well done to our new overlords. Well deserved one and all. :)

    EDIT: Given xUKHCx's new found status and member-banning ability, my comment yesterday evening about Watford's strip being girly may have been ill-advised and poorly timed. Bugger. :eek:

    Firstly thanks to all the well wishers, although given my few new mods I feel I am the least well known.

    I'm proud that my team are confident in their sexuality that they can go out in a girly colour.

    please sir can I have some more ;)
