New members are Greenhorns, then after 30 or 40 posts they become Ranch Hands. After that you could become a Bartender who moderatoes a forum or two. A Bartender is by invitation only. Then you can be invited to become a Sheriff, who can moderate all forums, and also do some other fun stuff.

Amit,

You may search this forum to find a variety of answers to your query about qualifications or invitations to become a bartender.

Also, see SaloonTitles in FAQ where I grabbed this quote, "Bartenders are people that have been recognized as generous, decent, helpful people and given the keys to a forum to do moderating as they see fit. "

As i uderstand it, bartenders are selected when the existing bartenders/sherrifs/owner decides they need more. How exactly this is done is a mystery to the rest of us, but you can pretty much assume people are selectecd who a) follow the rule (which is Be Nice), b) have been around a while (although how long 'a while' is is subjective) and c) show they know what they're talking about.

You can probably find more details on this if you use the 'search' funtion for this forum.

The role of a bartender has nothing do with Certifications, but they usually possess some technical knowledge for the forums that they moderate. They just keep the peace in the forum(s) and make sure that the conversations are smooth and don't result in a fight.

I also don't think that they get paid anything for their time spent at the ranch. They are just a bunch of jolly good samaritans.

Nope. The current forum software doesn't support other designations.

Just to clarify, everyone here is a volunteer. No one gets paid. The money that is collected from things like donations, book sales, and t-shirt sales goes to maintaining the site. In the past, when Paul had a little extra lucre from book sales and the like, he bought the sheriffs and bartenders trinkets (I am wearing my cool JavaRanch button-down shirt right now).

How one becomes a bartender is pretty simple. Make yourself noticed by being helpful and nice. Especially nice.

If you don't understand why Tom has spent so much time helping people, then I don't think you need to worry about becoming a bartender.

you can help the greenhorns (and ranch hands and bartenders). just answer their questions.

the only difference between you and a bartender/sherrif is that they can move posts to proper forums, close threads that get out of hand, and a few other things. But everyone here can help everyone else, and we do it all the time.

Don't worry about your title. you'll start to get a reputation here soon enough, regardless of what your title says.

How can I justify spending time helping people? Part of it is that I am a teacher and teachers like to teach. Part of it is that I am a programmer and I want to help my fellow programmers learn and improve. And part of it is the cool JavaRanch button down shirt.

One other thing for those who want to be bartenders. Your english doesn't have to be perfect but you should avoid using abbreviations such as "u" for "you, "coz" for "because", "ur" for "your", etc. They just make your posts harder to read. You have to remember that lots of people at javaRanch have English as a second language and some even use translation programs! So give everyone a break and use those extra 3 or 4 keystrokes to fully spell a word. Thanks!

There are pure selfish reasons as well.
There is no better way to tighten up one's own knowledge of the basics and fundamentals of a given subject than by teaching it. In the six months that I've been participating here, I've found all kinds of gaps and holes in my own knowledge of servlets and jsp. In order to answer a question without putting your foot in your mouth, it's often necessary to verify your answers by looking them up -- re-reading text that you haven't visited for years.

It's also a good way to stay abreast of the latest developments in the language or field that you work in. There are very few subjects covered in this site that have remained static over the last four years, including Java itself. By staying engaged with other people who are learning and exploring a subject, you automatically gain an awareness of the subject's recent developments.
