I am just curious, how are priviledges assigned to members ? When a user registers the very first time, is there a default role that (I guess that is 'ranch hand') is assigned ? Who controls the role assignment and how can a user get higher priviledges than the default ones ? thanks

for example I see roles like greenhorn, bartender, sheriff etc. other than the default which is I guess 'ranch hand'.
Greenhorn = 1 - 30 posts then you become a Ranch Hand. You get to be a Bartender (Moderator) by invitation. You get to be a Sheriff by an act of God Paul Wheaton. Some of the Sheriffs have abused their power and slightly modified their own titles :roll: . For a slight amount of cold hard cash Paul can be persuaded to give YOU a modified title too .
