Contributors Of The Year 2018

 

Thanks to everyone who voted!

This year we're going to recognize three members of our community as contributors of the year, our top vote getter and two of the top 6 who we agree have contributed greatly this past year.

First, let's begin by mentioning this year's nominees:

alandb
ajasaro
bdhsfz6
Bob.Sedona
Box Car
canuk
charlesd45
CraigW
donaldb530
eaglesft
jgermann
mahoney
Melaqueman
phranc
soberbyker
sussamb
thurst461
visiter555

All of these people received votes from fellow general maintainers. And as I look over the list, I'm reminded that we have we have so many people who show up regularly and are committed members of this community.
Thank you for helping make POI Factory the helpful community is it.

Now, let me move ahead to recognizing this year's top vote getter:

Mahoney

What can I say; he's the powerhouse behind so many of the big file maintenance projects. His open communication both via email and in keeping us updated on the updates within the forum community contribute to his popularity. He's taught me a lot about file maintenance over my last 7 years here and I appreciate his friendship.

There are several other well known members on this list who've already received COTY recognition in past years, along with two additional people (sussamb and soberbyker), whom we've selected to recognize as contributors of the year this year.

Sussamb has been a regular in the forums for the last several years. He's often the first to respond to questions posted late in the evening, because he comes to us from the future! Perhaps that's why his suggestions always seem spot on, as well! We appreciate having a general maintainer from across the pond.

Soberbyker's been a member for almost 8 years. Having owned and still possibly owning many GPS devices you can find him in the forums sharing his experience using and problem solving with each. He's also one of my point people for the Philadelphia area where the traffic camera landscape seems to be changing significantly. First hand feedback from trusted sources is part of what makes POI Factory data more useful than many other crowd sourced information.

Thanks to all three of you for your contributions to the POI Factory community! Your time and effort is greatly appreciated by Jonathan, myself and your fellow community members!

Seriously, I always appreciate reading all of your comments. You have a vast knowledge of everything Garmin. It is always with eager anticipation that I read your comments. You do a great job in assisting people, who like me, do not have your knowledge base. It is people like you that make this site so great. (By the way; I have a friend that lives in Great Britain. He and I used to have a lot of fun teasing each other about the differences between our two countries. He is a great guy and I miss seeing him since I retired.)

Me too

Lived in DC for two years and enjoyed it, though it took a while to get used to the same words used differently, let alone the spelling differences smile

We walk on the pavement, you drive on it. That one really confused me for a while. Buying a car in itself was tricky. I wanted to look in the boot, you call it a trunk. I wanted to look under the bonnet. You call it the hood. And so on wink

One time

When he was stateside, I got onto him about driving on the wrong side of the road. Alec stated that the Brits didn’t drive on the wrong side, “You Yanks do”. Of course, that’s what I wanted him to say. So, I smiled and asked, “What side are you driving on now?” Alec’s reply was, “You bloody Yank “. At that point, he knew that I had him where I wanted him. laugh out loud

The Brits have a saying "Knock me up in the morning", well I just learned that they actually had someone long, long ago go to houses and knock on the door or with a long stick knock on the window to wake you up! But it sure is a funny saying.

Sussamb, another strange one o'r 'ere is that we drive on the Parkway and park in the driveway !
