How do you use your CodeRanch Saloon Titles?

I'm here to answer your questions, but now I'd like to ask one of my own.

Folks who've contributed to CodeRanch get a Saloon Title like "Bartender" or Sheriff."

Good developers are hard to find, and a title at CodeRanch shows that you contribute to the community and enjoy improving your professional skills. Employers like that.

Do you find that the Saloon Title helps you get a better job? Do you employers contact you on the basis of your title? Or does the Saloon Title help you in some other way?

I could ask the same about karma/reputation at other sites, though mostly I'm asking about CodeRanch.

Yes!!! I've put my "reputation" (karma, level, points, ..) from various sites on my resume in the past, but it would be better if employers could find me with my rep.

Building Web Reputation Systems by Randy Farmer and Bryce Glass is a fascinating book on the topic. One important point is that reputations are not portable. Your reputation on one site means little on another. But on the other hand, each reputation does say something about who you are.

Being a moderator here has been recognized as useful. And I've interviewed a couple of people that have accounts here at the Ranch.
