    I joined Mile Point on February 6 last year. To celebrate one year on MP I will make one loan on the 6th. Who else has their MP anniversary coming up?

    Will nobody join the thread who will rid me of the dreaded newby status?

    I believe the date is joining milepoint.....not the Kiva team 1 year anniversary.
    The Kiva MP team 1 year anniversary will certainly trigger some loans. ;)

    That is the only way to get a loan to a Brazilian so far. Kiva will only add brazil, possibly, in 2013 or later.

    The Beta period was February, so everyone here who joined in February 2011 actually joined before it was officially open. IIRC, everyone who joined before may 2011 is considered to be an Original Member with an additional soucon of status, a la, Delta Diamond Medallion "Original Members". Unlike the zero benefit DM OM, the MP ones all received Original Member T-shirts.

    My second Kiva anniversary is on March 3. I'll have to make two loans that day to properly recognize the significance.

    Mine was gifted to my wife, as it was much smaller than expected.

    Being a member of this team has softened me up in ways that are perturbing.

    In light of jbcarioca's predicament I have uncircled February 9th as a date to make a celebratory loan. I should not want to "celebrate" my entry into a beta program at the expense and emotional well-being of one of my colleagues. I pledge to celebrate the Kiva BD as my true entry into Milepoint. The raison d'etre is that it is this forum that has piqued my interest and makes MP my go to travel forum.

    I am now going to take a stroll around the local golf course in the hopes that I can gain insight into my newly discovered empathy.

    You can't win the title of Noob. There can be only one, much like Highlander.

    I don't even know how to sign in to this place, so I just keep my laptop open for weeks at a time.

    If the team lends another 36K in the next couple of weeks, we will have loaned over 1.5 million in the team's first year. When exactly did the team break a million? Seems like things are speeding up to me...

    Reply -- would be a shame not to make the $1.5 million. Even though the year is before February repayments, I urge everyone to loan early and then withdraw repayments if you need to do so.

    Our team need to average approximately $ 2,250.00 a day in loans by our anniversary (Abe Lincoln's Birthday) to reach 1.5 mil.

    A 46% increase in the dollar amount of loans in a mere 49 days? That is impressive. Newt may try to hire this team for monetary advice.

    Make her another loan so that we can see her a while longer. :p At first I thought she was one of us and was hoping to see her at the Do.But that is not to be. :( Whatever she's selling I'd buy except it might be hard to explain to Phyllis what I am doing with a car full of beauty products.
