So I voted once when this poll first started, and registered my non-affiliated resort. When I visit the page now, it says I've already voted. Did I miss where I can also register the three other TS's I own - which are all (somehow) related to Wyndham/Fairfield? They don't reserve through Wyndham, but are managed by Wyndham. What does that mean for purposes of this poll?

So with VRI now a category, how do those of us who "voted" Other/Independent for our VRI mangaged property switch our vote? Actually since GWM is not VRI, rather than switching my vote, I'd want to add one for VRI.

As in excess of 50% of responses fall into 'Other' is it worth trying to expand the list. For example CLC, Anfi and Macdonald are amongst the major european resort groups.

if people want me to add to the list...ill do it...doesnt bother me much. I dont plan on taking the poll down or ending it.

I am not sure if there is a limitation to how many options I can ad...doesnt appear to be a limit at the moment however.

Dave ...is the 573 Marriott owners the number of Marriott owners or the total number of the Marriott resorts they own? I'm assuming the 573 are Marriott owners and that the number of Marriott weeks might be considerably higher than that?

Brian


Using the methodology in my above post, here are the numbers for those who have posted at least once and who disclose ownership in their posting profile. I added a few to what's in the poll and have included separate numbers for variations that quickly come to mind:

573 - Marriott owners

I think he was just doing a search on members profiles and came up wtih 573 users who had a marriott resort in their profile.

In the Resort Ownership Poll does the "Royal owners" box refer to Royal Holiday Club members or is it a different group?

If it's different, then would Royal Holiday Club fall under "destination club members"?


Thanks

when I put it up "I" meant it to be royal resorts....not royal holiday club.

but your point is valid...i dont know how many clicked thinking it was one or the other.

not in my opinion...but im always up for a debate =)

...you are still just a single owner of a particular developer/resort.

either way...the forum software doesnt allow for that anyway.

I think that one vote per member is a good way to do it. I own over 20 weeks, and some fall into one category or another (Wyndham, VRI, etc), but most of my weeks are in the other/independent category, so that is what I listed myself as, independent/other. If you start letting people say that they own 6 weeks here and 4 weeks here you will skew the percentages. You need to stick with the one category per member and let people change their "one" category if they want, but not list several in one category or list in several categories. It would be unfair to do it otherwise because some would list their favorites as many times as you will let them. I could list in at least 6 different categories and over 20 times if you count per week owned. By making me choose one I had to choose the category which fits my ownership best. JMHO, Tom.
