all except ranchhand and greenhorn are based on personal vanity and are just names chosen for themselves by moderators (and a few lucky sods)

"bartender" is a forum moderator

"sheriff" is a system moderator

"trailboss" is me - site owner

"author" is somebody that has written a book.

Sheriffs can tinker with their own titles if they want.

People who donate a hundred bucks or more can have a custom title. See www.javaranch.com/donate.jsp
