    Related to the unbelievably flawed website we can speculate intent vs inept or stupid decision-making all day long, but in the end, it still remains speculative. As Eric pointed out, unless we jump "into the bowels" of the code there is no certainty. We know only the results of what we...

    WB generously posted this breakdown of the Hyatt system. http://tugbbs.com/forums/index.php?threads/sticky-useful-links-and-info-about-hyatt-timeshare-ownership.258196/ Brian just made it a forum sticky! :cheer:

    Official "end my sales presentation early" TUG uniform (tshirts!) for sale!

    Flag & Sedona will be easy. Very low pressure at the PP desks. One NO works. Both are run by same sales Management. No idea about the NM locations however.

    It actually WILL get better but not in a timeline that will satisfy most owners. There is no question that Wyndham is now fully aware that there are problems. Do not expect admission of error, any reflection that this is more than owners inabilty to adapt to something new or reasonable...

    1) Am clear in my understanding the loopholes are now closed. 2) Am clear in the understanding you made a lot money with those loopholes (and a number of others) 3) Am clear in my understanding your ride was much nicer for a lot less capital outlay than most VIP owners (as was mine) 4) Did not...

    VIPs didn't, actually, expect more from their ownerships than free upgrades and discounted reservations within the discount windows. VIP owners utililzed those options in the way Wyndham ALLOWED, even supported by Wyndham staff for a period that exceeds well over 8 YEARS. That is a...

    Jan, I think they may have capped the comments to 120. Did 46 pages of screenshots capturing all the complaints on that FB thread. Likely it will get wiped out soon.

    SERIOUSLY? When it is "not ideal from owner-user perspective" in a system intended primarily for that owner-user to make transactions there is NOTHING definite that could be considered an improvement. Back trace your dots dude. Your logic account needs an audit!!!!

    Yep! And when the decision-makers knowingly pull the trigger to suit only the narrow focus of those marketing and financial aspects, IT gets saddled with the Grande Scramble to put it right after-the-fact. Now we have hampsters that can never get off the wheel because the EU's are...

    Am fairly certain there are a lot of VIP owners that thought they were paying for significantly MORE than only getting vacations at full point value, mega-renters aside.

    Good weeds. What is the likelihood they underestimated all three required resources? The longer they allow this to continue without expanding the resources what happens to the integrity of the DBs? Do they continue to crumble [corrupt] over time? The DB table sizes are significant with...

    Agree. It is a type of marketing spin, no question, and it's intentionally languaged in a way to do exactly what you describe. The lack of apology and directive to "check out your new site's FAQ" infers that owners not "seemless" in their "transition" are experiencing that because they are not...

    Have no doubt about the clueless upper management related to understanding specifics of IT workings. Management goals and rigid deadlines often get foisted onto IT as the "fix it" solution to a management agenda. What people do not realize, including management, is that developing a functional...

    It's a double-edged sword at this juncture. :shrug::shrug: Have no good answer because it speaks to personal preference and expectation. People will choose differently between: Online access with the high potential of unreliable reservations vs No online access (aka call the VC to search...

    Have no desire to even penetrate the dermis of the Voyager code much less jump into the bowels (but I know plenty of others that would love a peek). There are parasites in those bowels that are terrifying to consider. The "expert" part was Ron's spin on my "have an IT background." Does not...

    National Harbor 2017 availability

    They were actually entering the inventory manually the day the new system rolled out. VC's and OC reps were working out two databases, as were the resorts, trying to suss out what information was accurate. Some resorts were working from paper versions of their inventory that they made prior to...

    They do know about TUG and are smart enough to hire people to monitor these forums.

    Cindy, in the convos with the rep did you get a sense of whether the bogus upgrades, post-rollout, were due to bad coding in the reservation system or intentional (aka by design) to frustrate the rental process? Regardless, still speaks to the unreliable system we are stuck having to navigate.

    1) Generally, IT people do not get "dropped into the middle" of a project that has been months or years in the design and planning 2) If they do, they are there to fix a plethoria of bad before a system goes live because the skill levels of the team were not getting the job done in the first...

    Major kudos to the OP for making a really well thought out presentation of the Hyatt case to the site admins, regardless of the final decision. This is one of the (many) things I really like about the TUG forums. Members are able to get timely responses to questions that clearly explain the...
