This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I don't know if it's the right forum to ask my question.
I would want to know how,on JavaRanch, a member becomes RanchHand or Bartender; is there a system of points such that a member who initiates a thread can "grant" points to someone who has answered well to his question (to the question of the member who initiates a thread)?
