How do user titles work?

User titles are based on post counts:

  • Newbie => 0 - 29 posts
  • Member => 30 posts
  • Regular => 100 posts (minimum required to post in the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum)
  • 6502 => 250 posts (minimum required for access to the Marketplace forum)
  • 6502a => 500 posts
  • 65816 => 1,000 posts
  • 65832 => 1,500 posts
  • 68000 => 1,505 posts
  • 68010 => 2,000 posts
  • 68020 => 2,005 posts
  • 68030 => 2,500 posts
  • 68040 => 3,000 posts
  • 601 => 4,000 posts
  • 603 => 5,000 posts
  • 604 => 6,500 posts
  • G3 => 8,000 posts
  • G4 => 10,000 posts
  • G5 => 12,000 posts

etc....

Special titles for forum members:

  • Demi-God, Demi-Goddess, or Contributor => Member who has contributed to the site and has chosen to use one of those three titles.

Special titles for the MacRumors staff and volunteers:

  • Moderator => Forum moderator
  • Administrator => Forum administrator
  • Editor or Contributing Editor => Member who writes news content for the site
  • Moderator emeritus => Member who is a former moderator
  • [other title] emeritus => Member who formerly held the specified role

The numbers come from the increasingly powerful microprocessors used in Apple computers over the years. The 6502 and 658xx are from the Apple II family, 680x0 were used in early Macintosh systems, 601 and beyond are PowerPC chips.
