Is Owners Resources Up To Date?

I noticed that the last update to the Starwood Owners Resources has a date of June, 2008. Is the info provided periodically updated? Specifically I was looking at the Starpoints Chart; it has a date of 2005.

2008 is the original posting date - the sticky gets updated all the time, but updating doesn't change the original date, because when I update it, I just use the edit function. It works just like a post - the original posting date never changes (it is actually just a post that is permanently "stuck" at the top of the forum.)

I am not sure if the Starpoint chart has changed - the most current one would be at My Star Central.

However, as far as I know - Starwood has never increased the Starpoint value of a timeshare.

*I just looked - that chart is a spread sheet that was created by a TUG member. I think it is accurate as far as it goes, but it hasn't been updated in a long time and is missing many resorts. If someone wants to create a new one, I would be happy to post it.

If you have a specific question about Staroptions, we may be able to answer it.
