Contributors Of The Week 2016-02-29

 

This week we are recognizing, mahoney!

With nine plus years as an active general maintainer and two COY’s, it’s difficult to find something to say about Mahoney that has not been said.
I stopped counting the number of files he maintains because it was making me dizzy, not to mention the colossal task he took on at the start of this year, maintaining the Rest Areas Combined file.

I know for myself, living in a time when I’m accustomed to being able to access so much information with a few strokes of the keyboard or a touch screen, I sometimes forget that the information I’m consuming doesn’t just appear on the interweb. It takes time and effort by people to research, compile, format and continue to update everything. Here at POI Factory, we’re fortunate to have many active, dedicated members who volunteer their time and talents, and in doing so make this process look effortless. Mahoney is one of those members.

Please join me in reiterating our appreciation for his many contributions to our POI Factory family!

Well done, and well deserved. After the comments and concerns with the Rest Area POI, I for one am glad to see this for you.

Keep up the great work and remember, there are more of us who appreciate your work than say anything, so do not worry about the few who say negative things, since they are definitely the minority...smile

you know

If you keep this up Mahoney next year we'll have to have JM and Angela create a new award for you. You could be the first real fish (as in COD - Contributor of the Decade).

Another fine choice!

When I joined this great site almost seven years ago, "Rest Areas Combined" was the first POI file I downloaded. When I replaced my Nuvi, it was also the first one installed on that one. Thank you for taking that POI over.

Well said, GlobeTurtle. Mahoney is a volunteer who makes a difference.

Congratulations mahoney

As others have stated if a COD (Contributor of the Decade) or CHOF (Contributor Hall of Fame) award existed it's without a doubt you would also have both those badges.

Keep up the good work and once again thanks for your time, work and patience with this file along with all the others that you maintain at such a high level smile

Mahoney...

I can't say enough about the work you do for the Factory and the members of said Factory. You always do superb work and your files are the best. I probably have at least 10 of your files on my GPS's. Keep up the good work and enjoy your week in the spotlight. You are certainly deserving of this award. Keep up the good work buddy!

Three cheers....

for mahoney! Appreciate all you do for this forum. Enjoy your week as a COW!

Congratulations!

Well-deserved, mahoney! Thank you for your many contributions!

COW award

Wow, I took a little "rest" away from the "rest area file" and when I returned, I found that Angela had selected me for a COW award. I really appreciate that and also for all of the extremely kind words that have been posted. I wish that I could voice my thanks to all in person.
I also want to thank all of the maintainers that put in many hours of work each day keeping their files up to date and answering numerous questions regarding the gps world.

Again, Thanks

Great Job Mahoney!

Your efforts are greatly appreciated by the many. THANKS!

Well Deserved

The time it take to maintain P{O files very by size and available information. Mahoney all ways finds that info and maintains very good POI's (not taking anything from other maintainers) for some that seem impossible. Keep up the great work and enjoy. smile
