Oh wow. Real recently. Didn't notice that before. Now it's even more confusing.

He is a PC computer drunk on rum.

His friends where pretty smashed too and they dropped him off at the wolfire forums instead of gamedev. Finding the door locked he just smashed down and has now passed out on an armchair. Somebody should call the police to escort him out. I'd wake him up and kick him out myself but he might have a knife!

Well, maybe I found an information that could shed some light on this.
Apart from the mentioned pcrumm with admin status, there also is a philcrumm with no posts and preorderer status. Now, apart from the similar name, the date this philcrumm joined is notable, because it is Jan 13th 2010, the day that this thread was made.

So my guess of the nature of pcrumm as well as philcrumm is, that these accounts have to do with forum maintenance. philcrumm would be the test account to see the results from a user perspective(different from the admin view), while pcrumm was needed to make the changes, either because Jeff used a new account or because someone else was helping him.

pcrumm is the reason why the forums survived during the NS2 promotion. He is a phpbb team member who is helping us out. :)

This is much more interesting than the inactive profile I pointed out.

Yes. While you pointed out a random beverage, I pointed out an administrator. There is a difference.

But without my post in your thread, I wouldn't have noticed the second profile.

And without the explaination of Jeff, we would have never known the truth.

And big thanks to pcrumm! 8)

So in an inadvertant, although very legitimate way, I once again solved all our problems without even trying......except really tokage did.
