POI-Factory is an exclusive club.

First, they run a background check on you. That takes a week or two. It could be done in a day or two, but then Miss POI would have to pay a rush fee.

If the background check comes back clean they send a member to your house to live with you for a week. Thats the only way to truly get to know someone.

The last step is the voting. The COWs have a secret monthly meeting (don't ask how I know about it!) where they vote on the prospective members. If you are voted in you will receive an email containing the secret handshake. The secret handshake gets you 10% off at any restaurant.

my apologies

For the short feeding of my mind.

The Secret Handshake

You've said too much. We will have to trigger the self-destruct on your GPS.

The wait.

Actually, I'm grateful it's not a longer wait! 15-21 days (depending on when you make your first post) didn't seem outrageous to me. I just make sure to do at least one weekly post to remain active.

No one told me about the secret handshake. I have been paying the full price.

I knew from the start something was awry

and there was a conspiracy theory involved. My GPS is really a Neuralizer controlled by MIB of which Miss Poi is a part. Be sure to have your dark glasses on in the event your GPS begins flashing. Nanu Nanu!

If it was too easy

If it was too easy to become a member everyone with a GPS would have access to the speed and red light camera data. This would potentially result in a significant loss in revenue for those cities that have them. I sense a conspiracy to keep the files away from the general public.

She would just use a mind-meld to get everything. But because you only connect sporadically on the Internet, she has to filter all the packets. That takes a lot longer to assimilate your knowledge.

If they ran a background check on you, then how did they allow Bob-Dee to slip by under the radar?

I understand

I understand her point of view - I was basically the sole admin for a very popular discussion forum online for about 2 years. It can take over your life - or at least your free time.

It does take a lot of work. To have people come here and steal the file, and then never come back - that's not right.

Or, just pay the $5.

Just be PATIENT

... time will go by quick, you will see!

Who would want to leave all this?

Why would anyone would want to not come back and miss out on our ongoing series. Unless Miss POI sucked out to much brain matter

Well, there was a conversation about GPS's and red light camera on another forum - I gave out the link to this site.

1 guy was mad he had to pay $5 to get the file, and complained about it numerous times. I tried to point out the work involved in the site. He then claimed he found the same file on Bit Torrent and downloaded it for free.

After being an admin for a while, and even having to deal with the site via laptop on trips (and worrying if I would have internet at hotels, and what that cost would be for access) - I can appreciate all the work involved.

It's worth the wait!

I did my time and it was well worth the wait.

I know RedLight Cameras have been popping up all over Chicago and it's suburbs - but to actually see such a comprehensive POI collection like Miss POI maintains - WOW...

And contribute! This site and it's content only gets better because of the people that contribute.

Funny stuff ! But I agree it

Funny stuff !

But I agree it is a lot of work.

I agree

It is worth the wait (and passes quickly). I thought I woould just download the red light cameras and then never come back, but I do find the info on the site interesting and do find myself regularly checking the site for new info.

Don't know about worth the wait yet

But the responses here sure are comical and a great way to start the morning off wink

wow, I actually read this whole thread and now half my morning is gone. where did time go? where am I? How did I get here? How do you spell GPS? I'm getting dumber by the minute.

Why not just pay the $20 and get it over with.
One red light or speeding ticket would pay that price for quite a few years. It is cheap at that price.
I bet the lovely Miss POI is not gettig rich on that money, especially with all the work involved.
