Jon and I are going to tease you today about a new feature that will be rolled out on Monday.
I just can't help but leave you all in suspense over the weekend wondering what we are up to now.
What do you think, are you a star here on the POI Factory?
What qualifies you as a star, what benefits and responsibilities go along with this new level within the community?
There are currently around 300 stars here at POI Factory
More details to come later this weekend........
P.S. this means a new icon to work towards.....
Frequently Asked Questions
What a cruel teaser you are! Now I'll have to come back to find out....
Well, I don't know about HERE but I have over 230 green star on http://www.care2.com and growing each day. HOWEVER that's an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT website! (LOL)
But the adjective 'astronomical' has been used to refer to me in various contexts.
Sure get a new pair of glasses and see what happens!!!
After you Figure that one out how about making a Seniority Roster I Know I'll Be A Top Dog :::::

Ok I will give you another hint... the new icon will have a star in it;)
There are days when I love my job more then a person should, never before have I had the power to keep hundreds of people in suspense like this.
Tease, tease, tease.... I love it...
I'd like to thank everyone that is anyone,
I'd like to thank my mommie and daddy,
I'd like to thank the academy
I'd like to thank my dog,
I'd like to thank...
does this mean it only comes out at night..
two of the icons have stars in them....hmmm.....
maybe its not "Star" but "S.T.A.R." as in COW = Contributer of the Week
Maybe STAR = Super Terrific Absolutely Rambunctious
Hi MaryAnn & Jon,
OK, here's my guess...
My guess is additional icons, containing a star for every POI file that's posted or, let's say, for every 5 POI files posted.
That's my guess and I'm stickin' to it...
No, not the glasses, but the pre-school duty where she discovered how much kids that age love stickers and stars. Apparently kids our age love them too.
Golly - I'm just happy to keep the windmill... What would I do with a STAR?
YOU can tell me what it is, i am good at keeping secrets, I promise i wont tell anyone.
I can Tap dance and spin plates on two sticks at the same time, all while trowing my voice to the hamster that I had a audience member hold. I am always glad I do my act behind chicken wire, to protect me from beer bottles.
I have been told I am a STAR act.
Thank you very much for your attention!
Twinkle Twinkle little star how I wonder "what" you are, up above the windmill so high..........
That's all I can say.
Okay, so this will be one of the rare Mondays that we look forward to.
here is a preview of what the icon looks like.... Miss POI now has stars next to her eyes;)
What does that say General?
Miss POI now has stars next to her eyes;)
You've always had stars in your eyes, Miss POI.
What is a "general maintainer"??? No clue.
At least I now have my contributor badge....
Acually it's you, that puts stars in my eyes!
hey poop...stay in your lane. Miss POI is spoken for...don't let me tell Jon.
This is "evidently" a 2-way street...
It looks like you can hardly wait to tell us, just as much as we can hardly wait to find out.
You're posting about "Audition time" absolutely cracked me up.
Thanks for a good laugh...
A general maintainer: might be a person who frequently provides help and support for both the forum and its guests. Actually, there are a quite number of members I can award them A Super Star icon myself! What about that Miss POI?! am I right?! am I right?!
Oh Boy! something else to strive for.
Wooowww... Can't wait to see the brightness of that star !
i wan't to know now!!!
i'll bribe you by baking a cake - how does that sound ?
I'm guessing that the answer is already here some where.
under MrKenFl's suggestion (4th one down)
and Miss Poi's reply (5th one)
Ok here is another hint.....
it is possible to have stars but no windmill
I think the key is in these threads.
well, there goes that idea of being active more then 1 year. if that was true, then you couldn't have the star without the windmill.
Here is my guess...a star is awarded to those that have completed the following...
1) Passed the time period of whatever time limit that they set
2) Have contributed to POIs
3) Have contributed USEFUL information to other members.
or, you are really cute and cuddly
How did you know Charley ???????
She said there are ALREADY OVER 300 STARS here so, my guess is that it has something to do with the members. Perhaps MODERATORS?
That was the Community Auditions talent show theme song.
Mmmm will we have to tap dance or twirl a batton to get a star?
The suspense is killing me!
Although, I think it might have to do with volunteering. Right M. Mama?
I think the clue comes from hovering your mouse over the stars icon next to Miss POIs name. And then doing a search for those words.
So you wanna be a STAR...
Send your audition tapes to me....c/o MissPOI @the factory.com
I will judge them and you will be notified via email. All tapes become the property of POI Factory and will not be returned. Just sign the waiver of your rights to POIF.
All decisions made by the judges are final.
I can make you a STAR!!!

Hi Motorcycle Mama,
I think you've nailed it...
"Moderator & Maintainer"
my guess is star for being poi maintainer
Well here i am wanting to know more, where is the star
yeah, I thought we would know on monday...well, its monday!
As long as the stars don't include any more of this white stuff. Just received over 80cm of snow in the last week (0ver 50cm this past weekend alone). I am starting to run out of room to move this stuff. we are within about 34cm of the most all-time snow for our area which is currently 444.1cm
Spring is SO CLOSE, yet seems SO FAR away!
OK - my SWAG
You get one star for each year of membership and one star for being a "file maintainer".
And Charley gets an extra one for being Chatty Charley and another one for being "Cute & Cuddly"
Wow, I've been sick with the flu for three weeks and now I find all this excitement about stars! I am reading all these messages and since everyone else has guessed what the requirements will be to gain one I don't have to.
Now asianfire, I know it's Monday but doh't forget that Miss POI lives out west so it is a bit early for her to be logging on! I'm sure we will find out what the stars are shortly.
Well today is the day of this anticipated rollout, I am looking forward to reading the details.
I am now awake and Jon and I will be posting more information within the next couple of hours.
