Congratulate our new Ranchers

We noticed that some of our members have been consistently helpful and nice to other members in these forums, so we decided to award them the "Rancher" title. Please join us in congratulating the following 3 members:

Tim Cooke
E Armitage
Swastik Dey

Thank you Tim, E Armitage and Swastik for your contributions to these forums and congratulations on the new title

What does the Rancher title mean?

This page has a brief description about it. Unlike the moderator titles (like Bartender, Sheriffs etc...) which have super powers associated with them, the Rancher title is more a token of appreciation for the members' contributions. However, the one notable power that a Rancher title brings in, is the ability to award cows to fellow members. So whenever you see a post which deserves a cow, please do make use of your powers and award them

Congratulations! And remember that having cows will unlock special features on January 3rd, so you can help more good posters have access to them.
