Ok the people here obviously don't know what a macro is. A macro is a funny picture with a caption in it. Usually used on forums. Macros can be made completely from scratch. Or could be just a still shot of something and someone just adds the caption in. Macro can be made from anything. Real life, Anime, Video games. Macros are just funny pictures with a caption (usually using internet speak such as "lol wut?") That are usually used on internet forums.
It's retarded that no one on urban dictionary knows what a macro is.

In strategical games macro is the skill of making sufficient units all the time, without having further problems by this. In order to have a good macro, you need speed and a good eco.
If someone were to produce a tank every 15 seconds while he is busy dealing with actual battles and micro, this could be seen as good macro since the eco has enough time to rebuild and there is a constant feed of that unit.
Nada's macro is so gosu, he manages to outnumber all his enemies

noun: a program that allows the player of an MMORPG computer game to leave the computer alone while his game character does menial, repetitive work. These programs are illegal, but widely used, because the kind of tedious labor they perform for you is quite maddening over time. A "macroer" is a player using such a program.
If you use a macro, you can mine coal without even being at your machine!

Heh, wasn't it funny when that macroer's axe broke and he just kept trying to cut down the tree?

6.
The ability in RTS games to constantly produce units, keep a strong economy going, and build up a base. The opposite of micro, which involves controlling individual units.

In other words, keeping your money down (always spending it on units), your income up (by building workers to collect resources), and your army larger than your opponent's.
Zerg (from Starcraft) is a macro-intensive race, because of its ability to build units and expand easily.
