I don't know if it's explained anywhere on this site, but I was wondering about the significance of the various titles different individuals have.

I mean titles like Greenhorn, Ranch Hand, Saloon Keeper etc.

Obviously they imply some seniority, and I can see why I am a Greenhorn, but I wondered what they meant more specifically.

Do they imply certain qualifications, general programming experience, time spent working on this site or something else?

Or shouldn't I be asking?

Just wondered.

They're all explained at in this FAQ.

(I'm going to move this to a more suitable forum - hope you don't mind).

I certainly don't mind this post being moved thanks.

In fact I'd be happy if it were deleted altogether.

(Really should have looked a bit harder, shouldn't I .....)

Don't worry. This is like an FAQ for new members. Now if you have been around for years and didn't search first, it would look sillier...
