Use this thread to post questions for other fellow Ranchers and about other Ranchers. Answers should be hidden(not for the keen observer!) somewhere on the Ranch(and in some form - say a MD thread, profile details etc.). Also, this is "open" only for Ranchhands/Greenhorns, meaning only they can give answers. Bartenders,Sheriffs, Moderators etc. can only drop hints or ask questions

For e.g:
Which Rancher features a cow boy hat and can only drop a hint to this question?
Name the ranchers who have posted more than 21000 posts.

The person asking the question will have to give the answer (in, say, two days?)

[If this is a bad idea or would cause unnecessary load on the server(assuming lots of people do searches)..please delete this thread.]

Not really.
I would say this is a nice idea to test the "search" feature.
In case you find out a bug, please post the details on Ranch Office (not here)

When you hear "Kodiak", which member do you think of?
PS. Kodiak is not a typo. I did not mean to say Kodak.

Do deer play? I'm certified so is what I do considered play on this website? These cannot be Ulf Dittmer's words. I'm going to guess Bon Jovi only a

No, these are not Ulf's words.

Here's another hint, the rancher who said these words started a topic in MD(listed on the first two pages of MD forum, as of now) which has more than 20 replies (lots of pictures in those replies)..

good luck!

Here is the answer:
"JavaRanch, where the deer and the Certified play" - David O'Meara

this was one of the signatures that a cow girl here on Javaranch had(maybe still has)!

Maybe I should stop posting in this thread...not sure if anyone even reads it!
