I was hoping it wasn't just me. I haven't been able to get in for two days at least.

Can anyone get a hold of Glenn through email to check in and find out what the status is? I don't have the address.

Hi ToadHall. I think you might be referring to a different website. My guess would be that you meant you are able to log in to wyndhamvacationresorts.com not the for owners by owners forum referenced in this thread which has appeared to be completely down for the last 2 days. If you actually DID mean you could log in to forums.atozed, please clarify. Thanks.

Thanks guys but it wasn't really my intention to have people post Glenn's email address on a public forum...just that if someone had an email address and could try and get in touch with him then maybe post an update. Since people posted some email addresses, I will try and get a hold of Glenn, but those posts should probably be edited to remove his email address. Posting corporate contacts is one thing, but Glenn is just an owner who has tried to help organize the website.

Just to update, I tried to reach Glenn at the addresses people gave but they came back undeliverable. I was thinking there were two "t"s - Benscotter but both adresses given only have one T. Does anyone know for sure which is correct?

I posted on the yahoo site:

http://forums.atozed.com/ has been down for at least 2 days as far as I can
tell. Can anyone provide an explanation and ETA?
Glenn responded:

I received word from Chad Hower the owner and operator that provides the space and tech service for free that the server had been attacked. They were rebuilding the server when they discovered that more there were other problems. They bought a new server and was trying to build it and transfer over all the information. We have freebies here but he has his entire business there.

He estimated it may be another couple of days.

Looks like we need to just hang tight for a while...

Progress on Wyndham Owners Site

I tried to login to the Wyndham Owners site today and I see information on phpBB3, including how to install it. I suppose this is a sign of progress toward restoring access to the site.

A non-predatory price would be in the area of 7 dollars per thousand. If you went with that, I am sure the TUG Market Place would be able to deliver.
$7 per 1,000 :eek: Some of the Timeshares in the Wyndham system go up to 700,000 points! That's $4,900 for a week!

Granted i only need about 40,000 for two nights, but that's still $280 for only two nights! I'm just a poor single dad! That extra $80 is a week of food!

ETA:
I guess if that includes the $99 cost of a Guest Certificate its not bad...now(2:28pm) if i can get a Platinum member to book it, with their 50% off points and free upgrade, i can get a 2br for 30,300 points $7 per 1,000 equals, $212.10....still more then i like to pay per day, but not 'ridiculously high'

I was assuming no additional costs for a guest pass nor transaction fees. I am not great on math but I think 40,000 points times 7 is 210 dollars. There is 40 of the 80 dollars. Maybe a quanity discount for longer reservations or multiple discounts and the free upgrade would be possable without being to terribly preditory.

Food or Timeshare that is the question. The answer is Timeshare.

I am not in the habit of looking at weeks above 200,000 points for a week.

You're right. Your math is not great.
