Are you a POI Factory Star?

 

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 wink

More details to come later this weekend........

Miss POI

P.S. this means a new icon to work towards.....

Don't know about being a star

maybe its not "Star" but "S.T.A.R." as in COW = Contributer of the Week

Re: Another hint...

Hi MaryAnn & Jon,

idea 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... smile

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.

STAR BILLING at the Hillbilly Rendezvous

    Audtion time

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!

Guess

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?! question

Oh Boy! something else to

Oh Boy! something else to strive for.

next hint

Ok here is another hint.....

it is possible to have stars but no windmill wink

Miss POI

.

well, there goes that idea

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

She said there are ALREADY

She said there are ALREADY OVER 300 STARS here so, my guess is that it has something to do with the members. Perhaps MODERATORS?

"Star of the day, who will it be? "<singing>

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? wink

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.

As long as....

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!

POI Factory Stars

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.
