MaxisCactus (formerly "Cactus" before the Creature Creator Trial was launched) was the community manager of Spore, the most active admin on the Sporum, and a Maxis employee. She has stepped down and passed on the torch to MaxisKyle. She also hosted all official contests, and appointed moderators. She reduced transparency between Maxis and their customers.
MaxisCactus became famous from the moment her peafowl-like "See-fowl" with eyeballs on its tail feathers started walking around on the Yahoo! home page in early 2008, advertising the Creature Creator Trial.
She is currently offline most of the time, using the excuse of Dark Spore for not coming on.
It is rumored that MaxisCactus reveals hints about the future of Spore. If there is news about Core Spore, it comes in cryptic writing. MaxisCactus charges a high rate for any tangible information of value. These sales have not yet been documented, probably because no one has succeeded in offering a large enough amount.
MaxisCactus is also one of the few people on the Sporum to have control of the 10,000-day-ban-banhammer, one of the most prized Sporum relics. She also uses it most often, banning 20 or more spam accounts at once, but only once a month or less. Recent info shows that a list of potentially hundreds of spammer screen names has been emailed to her, and MaxisCactus will hopefully one day respond without mercy.
