First off, welcome to TUG (Timeshare Users' Group). The BBS designation is for Bulletin Board Service as that is what this is.

I'm just curious, if you weren't looking for info on timesharing, how did you come across this site?

If you are interested in timesharing, this is the place to find info on just about anything relating to timeshares. Take a look around starting at the homepage.
