It is time once again for the POI Factory community to select a contributor of the year!
Voting is now in progress and will run until midnight December 31st (Eastern Time).
Voting is open to General Maintainers only.
You have to be a General Maintainer to vote, and you have to be one to get voted for.
Here is a link to a list of all the General Maintainers:
You vote for someone by clicking the button that says "Vote for This User" on their user profile page.
How you voted is not visible to other users, but a summary of people who've received votes is available on this page:
You only get to vote for one person; however you can change your vote if you decide to vote for someone else.
This discussion thread is the place to mention good things about your fellow users' contributions in 2013.
Don't be shy. If you have general maintainer stars, cast your vote today!
My thoughts in no particular order
Throughout the year, the person that has been the most on target with answering questions has been CraigW. Charlesd45 has done so many truly outstanding FAQs that - actually I'm jealous of how good they are. Box Car makes comments that are thoughtful and to the point. And, let's not forget Turbocc (even though he is not in the General Maintainers listing right now)
Thanks to all of you who have created FAQs and are maintaining POI files. I appreciate it greatly.
I have been a member for a while at Poi Factory and like many others stay pretty close to the site. When making your selection this year I hope that you keep in mind that Poi Factory has a lot of members that don't post often as others but when you look at there user account. Then see all the files or type of files they are maintaining you really understand just how much support they contribute to the site. To me these members have a lot to do with what keeps the membership growing and others to stick around.
Look at the most popular poi files and see the ones that stay in the top 10 week after week. MRKenFL Rest Stops have been in the top spots as long as I can remember.Walmart by donaldb530 always holding a top spot. Only mention a couple but many more.
Can't overlook jgermann on all he has going on withe the tutorials,glossary and the FAQ.
Lot of selections out there and very easy to overlook a deserving member that you may not see posting each week.
and only 2 comments?
I suppose that means you're all in agreement?
Being a first year guy.. I didn't realize this...
I appreciate so many here that provide very knowledgeable information...the only problem is that are all deserving of this....
Hummmmm...eenie meenie miney moe.....
Thanks all ...you are all winners!
My top ten choices already have at least one vote.
There have been so many people who have help me with all my trivial questions.
There are so many on this site who post whenever an update is available and when there is information we may need to know.
Don't know what I would do without all of you.
A big thank you to everyone on this site.
...who contribute with your posts. From the questions to the answers; from the opinions to the witticisms, y'all make this an entertaining place to visit.
When you vote for the COTY, consider the folks in here who take the time to call, email, post or otherwise contact the various manufacturers and provide meticulous documentation about the firmware bugs we all know about.
They (GPS manufacturers) may pretend they pay no attention, fail to respond, send a "canned email" or act like we're just a bunch of complaining/whining hacks, but I really do believe some of their contributions actually do make it into that beloved category:
"Misc. bug fixes"
I'm from Illinois. My vote is for sale to the highest bidder.
How many times are you and your neighbors in the graveyard allowed to vote?
Hmm... wonder if there are people in here that have more than one user name, would kinda throw our total membership out of whack. The things i come up with....
I'm from Illinois, too. If no one wants to buy my vote, I'll vote for myself.
Thanks to you all, and to all a good night. Merry Christmas.
Do we get an 'I Voted' sticker to wear?
Do we get an 'I Voted' sticker to wear?
I had it tatoo'd on my forehead reversed to remind me I did vote already when
I look in the mirror !
we'll stated and much appreciated for us old timers
...that guy over there!
But then if you don't vote Angela may remove your name from the list of eligible COY recipients.
...and you'll be the 100th voter to cast a ballot.
I did vote. That's why I was wondering about the sticker.
Deleting this post.
We have now updated the vote summary to show only those Maintainers with three or more votes.
Remember, you still have a little over a day to vote and you can change your vote anytime up to the deadline.
Congratulations to all who have been nominated!
(In no particular order)

Wow - really suprised I made that list! Hope all had a great Christmas and are making plans to stay home and be safe on NYE!
I voted, but it was hard to pick just one. I find that several people contribute on a regular basis to nearly every thread that I read.
Thank you all for contributing even if you're not the COY.
There are so many that deserve the honor but regretted I could only choose one.
There are many very intelligent members here that go out of their way to help other members in need.
This is certainly the most civilized forum I have been a member of. New members are welcomed and shown no question is stupid and ignored, and done so with respect.
I have learned a lot here and I'm appreciative of those who have educated me.
I thank all that have put in the time and effort to make this forum what it is, and that is the BEST .
Thanks to everyone for a fantastic year. They are all winners in my book! They have helped make POI Factory and all of us users be the best we can be
Thank you and a very Happy New Year to everyone!!!
There are countless great folks here that continue to support this site with their contributions, be it POI files or assistance to those with questions. My thanks to all and Happy New Year.
