    Yep, this site is the best. We're in SFO on our return from a week in Hawaii, where the TUG site came in very handy to evaluate the [outrageously overpriced] offer that Marriott put on the table. Never had so much fun saying NO and then enjoying the incentive they gave me! Same goes for our second week at the Westin Princeville. Many changes coming the Westin/Vistana program, and TUG is on top of it, as usual. So so SOOOOO glad I found TUG!!!

    I found tugbbs to be much more "nice" than other timeshare forums where all you hear about is how terrible timeshare is. It certainly can be for many, but not for everyone. It's nice to hear from some positive folks as we are. So, I signed up and paid the fee. Glad to help support the site. Hopefully, we can provide some value with some useful piece of info for someone.

    I tend to be super obsessive about getting the most value for the least money, so, sorry in advance to those I might annoy! :)

    How many people are actually active on the BBS in the past six months? 90K is a great number, but people don't unregister when they die, sell their timeshares or just stop coming. Just curious how many people are actually active, either posting, reading or logging in.

    not sure, it doesnt give that metric anywhere i can see.

    I did find a search that shows 4000+ individual users have logged into the forums in the last 30 days. 3000 of which have posted a thread or a reply.

    given there are roughly 3 to 4x as many folks browsing the forums that arent logged in compared to users that are (for example right now there are 460 users reading hte forums that arent logged in vs 160 that are), thats a pretty hefty number of active folks!

    some other nifty stats show (since the beginning of the year) roughly 50 new threads a day, and 400+ new posts every day.

    most posts in a day for 2018 was on April 17th with nearly 600 of them.

    lowest was feb 17th with 274

    I only log in about 1 time in 5, if I have something to post. If the BBS had an option to "Keep me logged in" I would use it and you would have more information.

    Hi Steve ,
    Per at least one of my prior posts /
    TUG Brian actually runs a forum for people with mild OCD - who own timeshares
    LOL

    FYI - I liked your recent pictures & posts from Spain .
    Those are on my radar - for a down the road / sometime vacation .
