I know who is a "Ranch Hand" (as me). But who is a "Rancher". What is the different between "Ranch Hand" and "Rancher"?

And tell me how to be a "Rancher".

This member is a "Rancher".

Thanks.

See here. A "Rancher" is a ranch hand who has earned a little extra attention, for one reason or another: they're extra nice, or extra helpful, or something along those lines.

Why doesn't java ranch support 1-2 sticky posts containing guildelines or valuable information for a particular forum, so that it stays on top all the time.

Because the UBB software we're currently using doesn't support that. It'd be a good feature for whatever software will eventually replace UBB, though.

Why can't JavaRanch stop people hijacking a thread with sensible questions just as it's degrading nicely into a candidate for Meaningless Drivel

I'm now officially proposing a new 'Javaranch Dust Bunny Hunt', each thread that you find a certain pair of people flirting in (A "Dust Bunny thread"), you get a point!

Not sure what the grand prize will be but a copy of Dating Design Patterns might just be it

I notice you attempted to buck the trend, but I know you really meant it in the nicest possible way

Well naming names would be too easy now wouldn't it! Consider it part of the mystery to be solved
