This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
This site has become about ten times bigger since the last time I announced a new sheriff. More than one person has mentioned that I have been a slacker for not appointing more sheriffs by now. For the first time, I consulted with the other sheriffs when talking about making new sheriff appointments. I told them that I would like two new sheriffs and tossed out a few suggestions. It became immediately clear that there were four excellent candidates. It was difficult to draw the line at two and several of the current sheriffs suggested that we could really use more than two. These four people have already demonstrated great contributions not only to JavaRanch, but to the Java community as a whole. Each of them has repeatedly shown themselves to be patient, generous and overall decent folk. As I write this, I feel that JavaRanch has suffered for my shortcomings in not having given them the tin star sooner. I hope you all will forgive me as I now promote: <h1>Cindy Glass</h1> <h1>Thomas Paul</h1> <h1>Mapraputa Is</h1> and <h1>Michael Ernest</h1> to "sheriff". Congrats y'all.
Congrats to all of you!! From the quality and attitude in your posts you all deserve it... well Cindy, Map and Thomas do at any rate... Just kiddin Michael, actually I've been very impressed with your posts I wish I had half the vocabulary you do. Does this mean I have to be even more on top of things in JIG (beginner) now that I'm working with a sheriff? Or do I get to be deputy and carry a bullet around in my pocket Good luck all of you - the ranch'l be a bit more peaceful wtih all of the new law around.
Congrats to all... but that still doesn't mean I'm going to cut you any slack!

The funny thing about this is, I really thought they were already sheriffs....sheriffsis...sherri? I just asume anyone with more posts than me is either smartur, or just really really likes the way their fingers feel when they go clickity-clack on the keyboard. And anyone with a cow-boy/girl/person hat is someone I don't go messin' with.
