On any one of your posts, click on the image. It should open up a profile page and your total number of posts is displayed there.
The hierarchy is greenhorn->ranchhand->bartender->sheriff.
You become a bartender when another bartender/sheriff nominates you in the "voting" process. The same process of meritocracy is used to promote a bartender to a sheriff.

It is not a meritocracy... it is an oligarchy.

The hierarchy is greenhorn->ranchhand->bartender->sheriff.

so bottomline is:
a ranchhand should be on the good side of one or more (read all) bartenders and a bartender should be on the good side of one or more (read all) sheriff's....
a greenhorn automatically becomes a ranchhand if (s)he is on the good side of all ranchhands, bartenders and sheriffs....
