I am waiting to hear about the 6 month review award for my review of Barefoot condominiums in SD, which hadn't been reviewed in about a year.. There were a couple of things I forgot to mention and wanted to clarify how to add these details to the review.

then you should send a note to the review manager for that resort area.

I did do this on the 31st, but I noticed it was not added to the review.

review managers are just volunteers...I show your email just came in on 9/1/08

I am sure it is on her to-do list when she goes in to update resorts the next time.

rapmarks...do not worry, I did the same thing, once. Did not realize they were volunteers and not doing this full time so to say....it can take a little bit of time sometimes, but somehow they always do a great job from what I have seen of taking care of these sorts of things!!! Just be patient! :hi:

Question about 6 month review award...

any 6 month review award will be announced with a specific email to you. however those are running about a month behind the submissions in terms of notifications.
Hi Brian:

I submitted a review for WorldMark Big Bear back in August but I haven't received any email about a reward and the previous review was more than a year prior to my review. How would I check to see if I received the award for that review?

Since ads are free now, are you turning all rewards into extensions to memberships. Or do we have to ask for extension to be applied.

Is there any way to check on reward extensions ot referral extensions. I know I have at least 1 referral and a handful of rewards ones.

all ads arent free, they just are for most people...the reward process hasnt changed...when you get your renewal email, simply reply asking for your membership to be extended with awards instead of sending money...we take care of the rest.

ive not heard of any issues when submitting reviews using any web browsers other than AOL. (and we suggest using IE)

which resort did you submit a review for last? ill look to see if we recieved it.

you will always get an email "thank you" upon successful submission of a review.

I submitted a review for Wyndham La Cascada (A201) last week. I did receive the thank you e-mail but I had a similar problem when submitting a review about a Banff resort. The review never posted even though I got the thank you and the review manager said he never got it.

I use Safari on my Mac but I think I still have an old version of IE so I could resend if I need to.

resort review membership extension

I recently submitted 2 reviews that were being offered awards. My membership expires this month and was hoping that the membership would be applied to my account. Do I have to do anything else to claim it?

every membership renewal email comes with a reminder to use your credits to extend your membership vs submitting payment.

all that you need to do is reply to the email and ask to be extended via credits, we take care of the rest.
