Welcome to the RRA board General Discussion thread General Rules: 1. Since we will be using automated computer software to process data submitted by yourselves, it is necessary to limit all discussions to this single thread. We cannot allow any new threads to be started. If you attempt to start a new thread, it will not post to the board and will be automatically deleted by our software. 2. You may post in this thread if you have questions about how the Resort Reservation Availability Board works, have trouble interpreting the results or have suggestions for changes and improvements. Do not post your reservation results in this thread as it will not be found by the automated software. 3. Comments and/or questions on topics such as availability or waitlist chances or DVC Reservation Policies should continue to be posted on the Planning Forum. Thanks for your cooperation. Q & A (this list will be updated as more questions are discussed and added) Q: Does the format have to be exactly as illustrated? A: Yes. While a moderator could interpret what you mean, a computer can only evaluate an exact phrase. If you do not write your response exactly as required, the computer will ignore it and your information will not be included. Q: DVC said there are no Studios at all for my dates. Can I just use "ALL" in the code. A: No, the only Resort Codes allowed are as shown in the listings. We do not allow "All" because there can be a mistake in understanding what MS says. "All" could mean no Studios at all at a specific resort, or none at all in a specific category, or none at all in all of WDW, or none at all at VB, or HH. Q: Can I add personal comments to the posting? A: Please do not. The computer will try to interpret your comments as a report of resort availability. Since all submissions will be removed once they are processed and added to the report, any comments you make will not be seen anyway. Q: Can I report multiple dates. For example if OKW has no Studios available for the 5-6 and also 12-13 can I combine them into a single 'code' such as OKW,A,5-6,12-13? A: At this time, they cannot be combined as described. You will need to make two full inputs, either on the same line or on different lines. There are directions in the 'welcome' post. In this example your post could look like this: 8/14/08,OKW,A,5-6;8/14/08,OKW,A,12-13 and use a semicolon to distinguish between the two reports each of which contains the basic information. We'll take a look and see about a future enhancement so a person can report multiple dates in a more simple format. Q: Can I report dates for two months in one line? For example if BCV has no Studios available for Sep 28 through Oct 3rd, can I do it like this: 8/16/08,BCV,A,9/28-10/3 A: No since there is a separate thread for each month. Report Sep 28-30 in the September thread, and report Oct 1-3 in the October thread.
