    It my few months on Mac Rumors, I have never seen "Guest" as a user title, until today. What does it mean? Thanks.

    At a guess, I'd say it's someone who's not a member.

    From the forum rules:

    Simple search...


    edit: And.... the mod beat me to it. Which is as it should be, of course.....

    OK. Thanks, Silent Panda. I checked the FAQ and I guess I missed it. Sorry.

    I've never seen a Guest in any recent posts. What's the date stamp on it?

    2002. LOL. Neither have I. Does Mac Rumors still close accounts?

    Another thread?
    Really 99.9% of what you're asking is covered.

    What's wrong with posting threads? And anyways, this is my first thread today, I usually don't post that many threads anyways.

    I am an advocate of asking questions but not when the questions are already answered for you. FAQ, a good thing.

    Just struck by the dichotomy between the question and the sig line...:D

    Here's an example of when a user's title changes to guest:

    A forum member gets a job at an Apple Store and wants to make sure they don't get in trouble for being a MacRumors member. They contact us and we change their account to a "Guest" account. Their previous posts remain in the forums with that user title, but they can no longer participate.

    If they later move on to a new job, not for Apple, they may return and we can "unguest" their account for them, in which case they will return to their previous user title and can participate again.
