Why is my status listed as a greenhorn and how do I change that. I've answered several questions on the forum...often from people with "higher" statuses than me.

After another 20 or 40 posts your status gets automatically changed to ranch hand, if I remember correctly.

From the FAQ:

Why have greenhorn and ranch hand?

We want strangers to the ranch to feel welcome and the best way to make them feel welcome is to recognize them and say, "Howdy!" The greenhorn title let's us recognize the new ranch hands. Greenhorn has nothing to do with Java knowledge.
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
