    I was looking at the Forum Leaders thing at the bottom of the select forum page, and saw that a user named WildCowboy was an administrator. I joined here in early November, so I've never heard of him. Can someone, preferably arn explain who this is, and why they only have 10 posts, and none in the past several months?

    Yeah I saw this too. I'm also looking for arn to explain.

    It SEEMS that he got on today around 1 PM, so there is a slight chance that he may explain himself. Unlikely, as the only thread he has EVER posted in was about the iFund money for devs thread. I don't understand this one.

    He's an admin from Mac Rumors. He doesn't use the forums much, but he's kind of a trouble shooter.

    That's kind of dumb.

    I don't see why arn would need some one for the technical stuff, so I don't see the point.

    WildCowboy is a site administrator of MacRumors and a full time employee. He's an extra set of eyes for spam control and other issues that come up, and he's had a lot of experience for vBulletin moderation issues.

    Ohh. That makes more sense. I never knew that he even existed, until I read through that link. Well, I've never seen him around here, in my 2 months or so.

    he's not real active in the discussion forums, but he gets all the "reported posts" and so can, for example, delete viagra spam if he sees it first.

    No, not correcting grammar, but I had to lol at that one. Not real active, with all of 10 posts. I see his purpose, but I'd just never heard of or seen him. And nobody has ever mentioned him. So there are 3 admins at TA.
