Hi Sheriffs

Could you share some advice about how to become a sheriff here or what a sheriff should know or something related ?

I believe great big piles of cash work well. I'm talking semi-tractor trailers full of large bills. Send me a private message, and we'll work out the details.

Basically, someone becomes a sheriff when the owner of this site, or his duly appointed representatives, decide two things. 1) that we need another sheriff, and 2) someone has shown that they're basically doing that job already

by that, i mean they help others, they're nice, they don't cause trouble, they gently remind people to follow the rules.

what's interesting is that you don't have to know a thing about Java to be a bartender or sheriff!!!


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

And as been pointed out, meat pies don't count -- which is a shame because my wife makes a very good shepherd's pie (although we've been informed that technically, it is a cottage pie).
