    I there a corner of TUG that shows who owns what? It would be interesting [at least for me] to know what percentage of TUGers own Marriott, Hilton, World Mark, etc. I'm not as interested in the specific resorts owned. I'm more curious about the systems that folks buy into.

    No, there isn't.

    However, that info - to the extent people have put their ownership in the "Resorts owned" section of their profile - is available to you. Click on the "Users List" link on the above blue line. Use the "Search Users" link (right side of page) and then "Advanced Search". Then put (for example) Marriott in the "Resorts Owned" box and search. For Marriott, you'll come up with 572 Marriott owners out of the 7,859 BBS registrants who have posted at least once on the BBS.

    Thank you.

    I wish everybody listed what they owned. I know that this would not be practical for the mega owners however.

    Brian - you are are just too good! :D

    I think it would be great to have a category for "other," or "independents," as well.

    THANKS!!!!!

    Brian - Since I already voted, it won't let me add a vote for my independent resorts. No biggie, but if you can, can you please add my vote to that category?

    Thanks again!

    In this poll, I presume Wyndham refers to the former Fairfield resorts. Would you please add WorldMark as a separate choice? They are two distinct systems.

    Thanks,

    Using the methodology in my above post, here are the numbers for those who have posted at least once and who disclose ownership in their posting profile. I added a few to what's in the poll and have included separate numbers for variations that quickly come to mind:

    573 - Marriott owners

    244 - Wyndham (Wyndham 39, Fairfield 173, Pahio 26, Trendwest 6)

    210 - Starwood (Starwood 10, Westin 111, Sheraton 87, SVC 2)

    204 - Hilton (Hilton 89, HGVC 115)

    148 - Disney (Disney 72, DVC 76)

    100 - Worldmark

    53 - Westgate (Westgate 52, Wastegate 1)

    50 - Sunterra

    45 - Hyatt

    37 - Bluegreen

    25 - Celebrity

    21 - Shell

    11 - MROP

    4 - HCC

    2 - Equivest

    In addition, 178 people include "Royal" as an ownership. This group, however, can include a variety of resorts with the word "Royal" in addition to the Royal resorts in Mexico.

    Searching for "FF" (Fairfield) returned 77 hits. However, I determined that info to be meaningless because many of those returned a positive because of an "ff" combination in another word - such as "cliffs".

    Where the poll is at today, not accounting for multiple weeks, 62% of owners polled own a branded resort. If all of them have their own exchange system, which I'm not sure about, you can see what a slice that takes out of the pie for the exchange companies. There is no question that they have been hurt by the trend of the past ten years.

    I'm surprised that the exchange companies have kept their numbers up, if they really have. With past accounting questions, there is not much confidence in the figures they provide.

    I think the percentages shown on the poll are off. As of now it shows 105 independents and it says that is 61.05%

    But if you add up all the others, they total 156.

    Do the math.

    PS: I do see that 173 have voted, and understand where the 61.05% comes from, but it is not reflective of the actual percentages.

    I understand that.

    Let me try again.

    The percentages shown are of the numbers who have voted, not of the numbers of units owned. So they are misleading.

    Right now, for instance, 124 weeks out of 213 voters are independent, for a false 58.22%.

    However, 333 weeks have been indicated. 124 independents would be 37% of 333 weeks.

    All the percentages are skewed incorrectly also, since they are being calculated on the number of voters, rather than the number of weeks.

    Frinstance, it says the 32 Wyndham owners represent 15.02%. But, obviously, 32 is less than 10% of 333 (.096).

    I'm sure someone, some where sees what I'm saying.
