Hi Mandan, Being a bartender doesn't allow you to contribute anymore than you already can. It just means that you need to do more work besides being a contributor. Go ahead and answer as many questions as you can as that is the reason the Ranch exists! Regards, Manfred.
After helping others to the tune of a coupla hundred messages, you need to get current bartenders and sheriffs to notice how helpful you are and to nominate you to be a bartender. The last I heard, european chocolates were effective.
