POI-Factory 5th Anniversary?

 

If I'm not mistaken, it should be somewhere around the 5th anniversary for the POI-Factory. If so, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

The domain name was registered August 10th, but the site officially opened September 29th.

Could be ..

It could be, but here is the oldest dated page I could find smile :

And that would have made the 5th Anniversary on Dec. 5, 2010??

So, what's the "Official" date Miss Poi?

We now need a new POI Factory badge and have a short while yet to develop and adopt one:

The five-year member!

What about number 1?

You mean to tell me that http://www.poi-factory.com/node/1 is not the oldest page?

"here is the oldest dated page I could find"

.. meaning the date displayed, either on the page or in the source.

There was talk about a 4 yr pin of some kind but it went by the wayside as nothing ever came of it. I don't think there will be a 5 yr. one either.

The page dated Dec 5th was migrated from an earlier web site.

Here are some "official" dates for POI Factory:

August 10, 2006
registered the domain name

September 29, 2006
open to the public, first visitor registered

So the official anniversary will be on September 29th.

Darn, it feels good to be part of such a great and successful community.

Bobdee, what exactly do you mean by Jon and Maryann being the first registrants of the Factory ?

And yes, there's some humor in my question - you don't need to respond. I still remember the day my wife and I registered - a nice little joint in Brussels, on Jan 16th of 1998. Time sure flies !
