For quite some time we were very attentive and noticed, that:
Randy Tong, D.J. Quavern and John Damien Smith
have been consistently helpful on the CodeRanch forums. We were so exited, so decided to award them with the Rancher titles.
All, please join us in congratulating them.
The crew of three! Thank you for your contributions to these forums and congratulations on the new titles.
Oh yeah, your herd of cattle is going to expand a little, unfortunately you can't refuse that, so you'll have to take care of them Keep doing the great job!
What does the Rancher title mean?
This page https://coderanch.com/how-to/java/SaloonTitles has a brief description about it. Unlike the moderator titles (like Bartender, Sheriffs etc...) which have super powers associated with them, the Rancher title is more a token of appreciation for the members' contributions. However, the one notable power that a Rancher title brings in, is the ability to award cows to fellow members. So whenever you see a post which deserves a cow, please do make use of your powers and award them.f
