Contributors Of The Year For 2017!

 

Voting has ended, and our general maintainers have selected Mahoney & Alandb as the 2017 POI Factory Maintainers of the Year!

Mahoney has been an active member of POI Factory for nearly 11 years! He’s a file maintaining powerhouse! Besides the very popular/difficult “Rest Areas” files, the large number of regular files he maintains (I’ve stopped trying to count), he also helps update some of the orphaned files and files that other users have, for whatever reason (sometimes, family issues or health) been unable to maintain. Basically he helps update files he doesn’t get maintainer credit and “glory” for. While this is only his 3rd Contributor of the Year recognition, he is always at the top of the nomination list every year.

Alandb is a regular in our discussion forums. You can count on him to thoughtfully consider solutions to most questions posed and either share his experience or think of additional questions that might help the OP get to a better solution. He’s always friendly and polite and it’s easy to see why his fellow members have chosen to award him with his 2nd Contributor of the Year award.

Thanks to everyone who voted. We truly appreciate all of our active members, we wouldn’t be here without you!

Please join me in thanking our Contributors of the Year for all they do to help our POI Factory community!

Good work both of you

Mahoney took a couple of my POI files (with permission, happily!) because I no longer had the time to keep them up to date. When I peeked at what he maintained, I nearly fell off my chair. Hats off to both of you.

Both of you deserve this honor. You are both a credit to the POI Factory. Bill, you are a fantastic individual in the way you maintain the vast number of POI's that you do. Alandb, you are very knowledgeable in the workings of the GPS's and the many problems that can occur while using them. Both of you make POI Factory what it is. Keep up the good work. And again, congratulations to both of you. You both deserve it.
