Who shot the sherifs?

Every once and a while there seems to be another sherif. Like Angela recently (congrats on sherifdom). According to 'contacts.jsp' there are 9 of them. Yet the forum FAQ assures me that the role of sherif is so prestigious that there are only 4. Hmmmmm. I made a program to test my hypothesis (that is, that something is fishy)

If I got the algorithm right, then something must be fishy.

contacts.jsp is correct, I think.
FAQ is outdated.
And Angela has been a Sheriff for a long time now.
I don't understand why you are picking on Sheriffs,
you know they are the most powerfull, right!!!
A sincere suggestion, leave them alone...

I think I was being used as a fairly recent example Thanks for the congrats .. I'm still in shock I was promoted!
In fact it was me who wrote the FAQ a long ways back when there were only 4 sheriffs, then Paul decided to relax the reigns a little and lets load of us in!
One day I will get that page updated!

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
I agree. Here's the link:
