So, a skewed result that doesn't comport with reality reveals a lot about the sample itself. That itself is worth studying.
When the polls fail, they expose the bias of the poll and pollsters! 2016! ;)

Then what IS the purpose of the poll, if not an extrapolation of [Club] Wyndham [owners] based on a TUG poll? Or any other Wyndham related poll on TUG? It all seems an exercise in pointlessness.
I view this poll as a reflection of the fairly exclusive group of people who participate in tugbbs itself. It's nice to see the ownership profile of those I am chatting with.

I wonder how many VIP points have been sold and have become resale points? I also would like to know how many resale points a year are sold private sale. Add another category the resale points Ovations takes back and then Wyndham sells as developer points? This could be another poll.
@SNA27 Are you working on these polls?
Add another poll on how many rescinded and if they were non VIP or a VIP and what level. Add in if they rescinded and bought resale or went back and bought developer.

@SNA27 start another poll on if this pointless post above was necessary.

Apparently, these polls are not universally acclaimed or well-received. Otherwise, more people would have cast votes..
You should do your own poll. It's quite easy to set up. The preview doesn't work well. You have to post to really see how the poll looks. Go for it! PM me if you need my help.
Polls are interesting and generate traffic. That would be one way for guest 'lurkers' to contribute to this forum by at least looking at ads! :)

I suspect there are not that many truly active forum users on TUG when compared to the total registered user base. That said you do see a lot more “reads” than actual replies - but then again how reads are defined matters. I use a mix of Tapatalk and my laptop to consume TUG content, and I often check the same thread multiple times throughout any one day because I receive Tapatalk notifications every time someone adds content to a subscribed thread. Does each time I check the thread count as a “read”?

If you are really interested in getting a better response rate on these types of polls, I would also consider posting a similar poll out on one of the Facebook Wyndham groups that has 25k+ members. There are only a couple Wyndham groups that have this amount of members - and these large groups also have a lot of members that aren’t Wyndham owners - but they rent from owners via the groups - so I would consider adding a section to the poll to capture this member segment if you choose to go down this road.

Less than 100 poll respondents out of 500,000 owners is a meaningless joke -- statistically speaking.
Statistically speaking, your contention is a dud 'joke' lacking a punchline!:)
It's not the sample size but the randomness of the sample that makes a poll meaningful or meaningless.
I agree that this sample is neither random nor representative of the whole population. In fact, even if 50,000 had cast their votes here, the poll could still produce skewed results since the sample is not truly random and hence not representative of the population.
But you seem to be hung up on sample size. Size doesn't matter, as they say! ;)

See Grammarhero's post. It's worth repeating.
@CO skier @SNA27
As you know, I am a data-curious person. As attached, Gallup famously uses a sample of 1004 people to represent 260 million people, or 1 sample per 260k people.

I think @SNA27 ’s poll is useful and sticky-worthy. Obviously, tuggers are a self-selecting group. I find it interesting that while resale-only owners comprise 5 percent of all Wyndham owners but 42 percent on TUG.

Bump back to top. Hopefully @SNA27 can get a few more to respond.
