Which specific qualities are looked into to become sheriff on Javaranch? No, I do not plan to become one. But I am curious since the assortment(of current sheriffs) looks very internationalized.

This kind of question would fit better in the JavaRanch forum; for a short answer, have a look at this.

I believe the best way is to drive a dump truck full of cash up to Paul's house and leave it there.

Or, to have a bakery deliver a fresh pie-a-day to him, for life.

After that, the best way is to be nice, help others, and not want to be one.

There is this bakery a few miles from my house. It is owned by a former stock broker. My friends call her the "cake nazi" -- which of course, is a reference to seinfeld's episode about the "soup nazi". Just like the "soup nazi", her cakes are amazing (and incredibly expensive, and she is not that nice, etc.).

Don't know if she makes any pies, but the next time I pick something up, I'll check.
