We noticed that Piet Souris has been consistently helpful in various ways and has been nice to other members in these forums. So we decided to award him the "Rancher" title. Please join us in congratulating Piet.
Piet, thank you for your contributions to these forums and congratulations on the new title.
What does the Rancher title mean?
This page http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/SaloonTitles 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.
