Contributor of the Year for 2008.....

 

This year’s Contributor of the Year awards go to:
ScottK and Motorcycle Mama.

ScottK, I don't know where you found the time to make the 61 files that you did over the last year.
Your files are beautifully created, with all the info that should be included. It is easy to edit your files, I can always find the city and address info.
4 of the current top 30 files on the site have been made by you;)

No matter what file I look at I see long lists of updates, you have done a great job making sure that your helpers are given credit and you have stayed on top of any emails that I have sent regarding your files.

Your files are some of the most complicated ones to keep updated. You specialize in all the major fast food chains and any other high profile chain that someone could ever want on their GPS. Having you on the site has been very rewarding for our community.
Not only do you build your files, but you also submit pictures and Icons to go with them. You really do go above and beyond the call of duty.

Last month you let me know that you have taken on more responsibilities at work and would be unable to keep up with your projects here. I will now start the process of delegating the projects to others.
Thank you for all that you have done for this community in the last year. You have really earned this recognition.

Motorcycle Mama, No one shines as brightly as you in our forums. When I pulled the numbers for the year it was no surprise who my top poster was. With 2,434 posts you were way ahead of the pack.

It makes me feel great to honor you with this award for the second year in a row.
You have been awarded the COW award 12 times since you joined us 2 years ago. I know your 2 year anniversary is a week away, close enough;)

Your knowledge and insight in this industry is inspiring, and we really appreciate having you as one of our great leaders.

This has been a fantastic year everyone. You should all be proud of the growth that this Factory has undergone in the last 52 weeks.

With this award comes a new icon, a Bonsai tree. I have made one for last year’s recipients also and these icons are permanent, they will not disappear like the COW awards do.
I will be posting more honorable mentions that need to be made of other contributors later tonight or tomorrow. I wanted to get this up before the lynch mob came after me.

The story behind the icon

Jon and I always have fun searching for the new icons that we use on the site.

Last night we spent about an hour trying to decide what to use for this award.

When we had a bonsai tree pull up in our search I knew that that was it.

I see our community very much like a bonsai tree, it takes a lot of work and team effort to make it a spectacular place that everyone wants to admire.

So it is very fitting that the leaders involved in the care and guidance and growth of our POI Factory Bonsai tree have it displayed on their mantel.

Sincerely,

Miss POI

A Bonsai tree

With this award comes a new icon, a Bonsai tree. I have made one for last year’s recipients also and these icons are permanent, they will not disappear like the COW awards do.
