Please congratulate Angela Poynton as a new JavaRanch Sheriff.
Angela has been making huge contributions to the Ranch for a very long time. She wrote the FAQ's and reworked the Bunkhouse. When pages went goofy on us, Angela has often been the person to jump in and fix them. When tempers start to flare, Angela jumps in to try and cool things off. Angela has certainly earned her badge!

Thanks for all the praise Paul and thanks for the promotion, I'm really excited about being a Sherriff.

Hey waitaminnit - that ruins our "magnificent seven" theme. Or was it the seven dwarfs? Maybe Angela could be Snow White...
Anyway, excellent choice Paul. Congratulations, Angela!

bows gracefully Thank you all ... I have to say this was all very unexpected .. I had hoped one day to wear a tin star but didn't think I had been around long enough ... then out of the blue Paul pops up and asks if I'm interested ... as if I'd say no!
Feels great to be a Sheriff ... my Dad will be so proud ... he loves Westerns!
Of course I'll remember the Bartenders .... I'm not one who forgets her roots ... those of you who have been around long enough will remember I was promoted from greenhorn to ranchhand to bartender all in one day so I know how lucky I am.
As for being Snow White to the Seven Dwarfs ... I quite like that ... just wish my rich and handsome Prince would hurry up and appear so I can go to Java One!

Paul we already have The Contact Page which lists all of the Sheriffs and Bartenders and a few selected people in order of the number of posts that have been made. Of course this hasn't been updated to include me as a Sheriff yet!

Fantastico!! Great News!
Congratulations Angela, and I hope you'll like the power toys! I kinda like the Snow White idea, but we gotta think of a more "powerful" theme, the Snow whity thing is very soft and chweet.

Congratulations Angela
I feel really small in this thread, among Sheriffs and Bartenders. But all the same, that won't stop me from congratulating you . Actually, when I first posted a query "Cold Feet" in the beginner forum, I recieved a reply from John Wetherbie and Brett Knapik. After which I got a reply from Angela, who was and is the moderator. I was rather awed to get a reply from her (was new to Javaranch and thought that moderators just gave warnings ). Way to go Angela.... . All the best
Rebecca
