Lately lots of ghost weeks with the following message happening. Seems Weeks not available show at times for many hours.

Thanks for the heads up.
Ghost weeks in HGVC’s online reservation system or RCI?

If HGVC, which resorts? Are you only observing this behavior with the recently added Florida affiliate resorts?

I'm seeing the same thing in the HGVC system for the Florida Gulf Coast resorts.

I just looked. They made a bulk deposit across the board for the Florida Gulf resorts .:thumbup:
Maybe the bulk deposit caused the strange system behavior:ponder:

I saw almost nothing for all 9 months a few days ago :shrug:

I tried when I saw your note and saw nothing, now see some August and September. Wonder if they are real.

I don’t see as many as before.
I tried again but I didn’t go beyond the confirmation/payment screen.

Congratulations

When does the system return the “size requirement not met” error message so I can refer to this thread in the future? And did you report it?

(a) As soon as you select the dates and instead of getting the small pop up box, you get the size “requirement not meet” pop up/page
(b) After you select the dates and select continue in the small pop up box then you get the size “requirement not meet” pop up/page
(c) After select the dates, select continue in the pop up box, and try to proceed after completing the confirmation/payment (in post #8)?

Happens in A. My guess is someone already got it and instead of saying no longer available you get size message. In the past I use to get all the way to entering credit card info and then being told not available.

It seems the inventory that is in the other system (Scotland, Gulf Coast Florida etc) are not being updated in near real time. I am assuming it is every 24 hours based on what I am seeing happening.

It is frustrating, as I think they need a more frequent updating of the data.

I agree, when I release a week I haven’t had it show up anytime within a few hours of me looking. Haven’t figured out when any week is released. Makes me wonder if the home Resort gets a chance to get it back and put in something else.
