Over a quarter million strong and growing...

 

Over a quarter million strong and growing...

When I joined this family, I was the 14,984th member (that was 3 years and 43 weeks ago). This family has now grown, to over a quarter of a million strong.

I take my hat off to MaryAnn and Jonathan for all their efforts in running "the best" POI site on the internet.

Keep up the good work!!!

Best regards,

tailspin

Miss POI

Sure we do!! We're a family and are excited about any member of the family and their successes.

I do believe, however, you and John deserve a lot of the credit for the success of the site. You're the ones who had the dream and worked to get it up and running. I personally would like to express my appreciation for all your hard work. You both should be made COD (Contributor of the Decade).

Click on the name you want to check

Yep, it's great here

Haven't been to another GPS/POI site in over 6 months. Some may say that I'm missing out on something, but I don't think so.

Great site layout.
Great members.
Great place to vent, brag and ask questions.
Great owners - MaryAnn and Jonathan

Thanks to everyone.

When I first went looking this past December, after getting my new toy, this is the first site I found. I guess I'll go looking for other sites after I finish reading all I can here. I'm not sure I can read as fast as some of you out there can type though so I may be a while.

Yay -this is the GREATEST community EVER !

Miss POI and the Team are the very best buddies one can hope for, and this page is one of the very first I check every morning. There's great info, great fun too - And we don't limit our group to just one brand or other, this Community has a real open mind!

Let's keep up the good work, and thanks once again to our beloved Admins !

Say - should we try and make stickers, or badges we could wear, or sumthin ? Or maybe locate us all on a map ? Or just add a small flag of our area next to our Avatars ?

WoW! I'm over three years

WoW!

I'm over three years involved with this wonderful site now, and wondering where the time has gone!

MaryAnn and Jonathan have not only taken on the enormous task of building and maintaining such a massive work, but have done it extremely well! Their level of devotion has touched the lives and hearts of the many. How they keep track of this many moving parts all the time is a big mystery to me, and yet they continually improve it to make it bigger & better. They even keep it technically user-friendly, as well as a clean, friendly, and welcoming place. No wonder Poi Factory is such a BIG success!!!

My biggest thanks to MaryAnn and Jonathan for actively being such wonderful & giving people! I also think that over a quarter of a million people will totally agree with me that Mrs. Poi being so photogenic and incredibly beautiful has certainly not hurt anything either!

This site is an AWESOME place for beginner and old-hand alike!

-It's not just a site... it's truly an adventure-

One question, though

Miss POI

Of course you don't have to answer this if you don't want to, Miss, POI, but what material gain do get from the Factory? What's in it for you and Jon? Since you don't advertise, how do you even pay for this site? Do you and Jon have "regular" jobs?

Why I joined 19 months ago

My old Magellan Explorist had very few Mcdonalds in the outdated database, especially in northern Iowa. A google search led me here.

Of course we value these. And it definitely show that this site is well thought out and the spirit is running high, all the credit to you and Jonathan.

A quarter of a millions; that would be quite a get together BBQ...

Keep up the good work!
