Contributors Of The Year 2019

 

Thanks to everyone who voted!

Like last 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 10 who we agree have contributed greatly this past year.

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

eaglesft
mcginkleschmidt
CraigW
jgermann
t923347
phranc
johnm405
dutcherp5
maddog67
johnnatash4
Melaqueman
ajasaro
donaldb530
charlesd45
Box Car
bdhsfz6
visiter555
sussamb
alandb
mahoney
tdellis

All general maintainers were eligible, but the above were the members who received at least one vote from their fellow POI Factory general maintainers.
I love that so many people were recognized by their fellow community members!
Thank you all for your contributions this year, this community really would not be here without every members individual contribution. Thank you!

It should come as no surprise that our top vote getter is Mahoney!
I'm not sure there's anything more I can say about Mahoney, that I haven't already said in the past 8 years that I've been moderating this community.
Mahoney maintains many, many, POI files, several of them high maintenance projects. He has great open communication with anyone who contacts him about one of his files and/or asks him for help or advice on a file they're maintaining.
Thank you for all you do Mahoney!

Our next COY is CraigW!
CraigW has been a member of POI Factory for nearly 12 years. He maintains several FAQ pages as well as a couple of POI files. He's more well known in the discussion forums for his helpful problem solving skills and easy going personality. I love that he's not afraid of continuing to try new things and seek additional help from the community as well as offer help. He's an excellent example of a well rounded community member!

Our third COY of 2019 is, Phranc!
With only 16 weeks less than Mahoney, Phranc is one of our more senior (time wise, not age wise) active POI Factory community members. He's often one of the first people to respond to questions or issues raised in the forums by fellow community members and he's usually quick at notifying me of any disturbances in the force (odd glitches that might pop up in the discussion forums that the system hasn't alerted me to). I really appreciate Phranc's (often unrecognized) contributions on behalf of the POI Factory community, as a whole.

So there you go! Please join me in congratulating and thanking our 2019 POI Factory Contributors of the Year!

If we were allowed multiple choices, these three would be in my top five. (I can think of a couple more to round out the top five.) Congratulations to all three of you. All of you deserve the recognition. You guys are the reason that this site is so great. (Along with JM & Angela.) grin
