    I still don't quite understand the ranking system of the forums. Obviously, there's "Newbie", "MacRumors Member", and "MacRumors Regular", but some users have strange rankings, like "MacRumors 6502". Then, there's "Demi-God(dess)" and "Contributor". Could someone explain it to me?

    It all depends on how many special powers you have.

    If you have no special powers you'll have to read the FAQ I'm afraid:)

    It's all explained in the FAQ, along with various other forum related stuff.

    How ironic your question given the location in your profile. :D

    Our FAQ fails to explain why some members have a little icon under their user title (sample). Luckily, you can mouseover the icon for an explanation!

    Looks like we'll be crowning our first G5 soon.

    Puhleeze, you're a mere 205 posts away. Unless Australia drops off the grid, it should happen in 10-20 days.

    Unless you need more than 30k posts to hit G5, you might need 35k, 40k or even 50k ;) (the G4 was the processor of choice for ages, so the Gods may have decided that).

    175 and counting. Looks like someone is making the push to 30K. ;)

    Looks like someone is looking at someone making the push to 30,000.

    Very very true. It's funny how internet communities work, if you think about it.

    It's quite easy to get over 500 if you're active. It's a level of commitment. :rolleyes:

    It's easy. Ditch your friends. Quit your job. Get a really fast Internet connection. The rest will be straightforward. Until they come to repossess the chair you are sitting in.
