It's been a while... so we went and selected extremely helpful and well recognizable CodeRanch's community members and promoted them to Ranchers!
Please join us in congratulating these new Ranchers:
, Mike Savvy
, Joshua Bloch
and John Matthews
The crew of four! Thank you for your contributions to these forums and congratulations on the new titles.
Oh yeah, your herd of cattle is going to expand a little (in under the hood
), unfortunately you can't refuse them, so you'll have to take care of them
What does the Rancher title mean?
This page https://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.
