Orphaned POI Files

 

Orphaned POI Files

When a maintainer leaves our community or makes the decision to downsize their projects and gives us notice, we move the POI files to Orphaned Files

Any members interested in file maintaining are welcome to ‘adopt” any of these files.
Or, if you find a file in a search that hasn’t been updated for several years, please let me know. I will check on the status of the maintainer and if they are no longer interested in the file, I can switch it to you or move it to orphaned so we at least know the current status.

If you’re interested in maintaining a POI file but have never attempted it before, please contact me and I can put you in touch with a POI File Maintenance Mentor.
File Maintenance Mentors are members who have put together and maintained files who are willing to help get you started by sharing their experience in POI file development and maintenance.
I have a few people in mind as mentors, but if you are a file maintainer and are interested in helping as a mentor, please comment below.

Thanks for contributing!

Is there a way we can see what orphaned files are available?

I don't know that I can find the time

to maintain any more, but I would love to be a Maintainer Mentor.

Wow, quite a list

I'll have to retrain myself, LOL. My POI's don't change much. They don't make any new caves.

Tattling on myself

After I’d been here a couple of months and started to recognize some of the member names and personalities I commented to Jonathan about how strange it was that this Mahoney guy is so meticulous about the majority of his files, but seems to neglect all his Lighthouse files.

I too would ...

PS, All Those Tourist POI file were dated for a reason, That way I did not have to update them but just put together a new one for each year, however, I found that a lot of the places that I was putting in them could go into my Offbeat, so I decided to just go with the offbeat one. I also have put together some poi's for users here when they asked for them. I don't mind to help and most of the POI that would be used are all done.

My offer stands to help anyone with a poi or if they are looking for something Special for the moment for there trip.

Some or the ones that others asked for are Save-A-Lot Food Stores, Canandaigua NY, Heartland Brewery and Lancaster PA.

PSS - Anyone want to take on Save-A-Lot.. PLEASE DO SO.. not updating that one!
