    I should know better than to make demands of volunteers. Where's that delete button? :rotfl:
    Pretty much, but by using the code tag, the spacing actually holds. Otherwise, it all gets scrunched together. Also, if it's easier to read, then you don't necessarily have to break it out by property as long as it's sorted by property.

    I think it's a lot easier to read than the delimited data, but I don't know if it's formatted that way for a reason.

    The only thing I don't like is that you need to scroll to the right to read the data that isn't shown in the box. Is there a way to make it wider? I'm not opposed to doing it that way. I was just following the format from the last ROFR thread. I follow the DVC threads on another site and that is how they list their DVC data.

    Here I go again. I'm a big fan of including the most important information on the left. I don't see the point of including four years of points balances; we really only need to know the total contract size, the number of banked points, the number of current year points, and next years points (in case any were borrowed) to assess the quality of the contract. I also rounded off any change on the total price.

    The "code" box allows for 80 characters, so I reformatted everything. How does this look?

    That looks a lot better and cleaner to me. We will have to have 3 boxes- Passed, Waiting, Taken. What about vertical size? Will you have to scroll vertically if there are too many entries? I'll edit the first post later when I have to to make the changes… unless anyone is opposed to having it look like this.

    I completely agree. This is easily readable and I believe most DIS members will get more value from this format. Great work everyone!

    I just don't see the relevance to putting the DIS name first...it throws off a quick scan due to varying name lengths. I don't think people look to the lists to see who bought or sold, just point amounts and prices. If those were in line, it'd be an easier read. Put Dis name last.

    Really, I had the first taken contract here? Kind of makes me feel worse. :) I was surprised and disappointed it was taken. I thought I was getting it for a pretty good price compared to similar contracts but it didn't seem low enough to be taken. The company we were going through said two SSR contracts were taken this round and the other was for $72 per point and had all 2012 and 2013 points.

    I formatted everything so far. It got a little confusing between Use Years and "Current" points. If it's a March UY, are 2014 points current or next year? I almost want to take out the Banked column and and just add those into Current Year. I'll leave it up to the OP if you want to use this format.

    PASSED :)

    Honestly, I found it easier to read and follow in the original format. Sorry

    I'm guessing that someone waitlisted with Disney for that UY/resort/points. Really unfortunate timing - it seems that a pretty equivalent contract passed in December.

    I'm actively looking...and actively bracing myself for the time when I eventually put in an offer. I will need a stomach made of steel to get through...

    Feb would be 2014 points… but March-December is still 2013 points. I think that is why it was broken down by year on the previous ROFR threads. The problem is when the UY lies.

    I guess we could just add the banked points into current year points and if points were borrowed. We can all assume that the full allotment of points are available 2 years out.






    I wish I had the 2nd post on this thread, which I thought of doing.

    I am willing to have both formats in post 1 and if I continue this thread in July, I'll grab post #2.

    Two formats are not necessary, since it may increase your future work. We really appreciate you take over this informative thread. So we will be quite happy with either format:thumbsup2.

    The problem with the code list is that it will be extremely hard for me to update from my phone. With the old format it is copy and paste.

    gibbow---$112- $6166- 50-BLT-Dec-50/'12, 50/'13, 50/'14-sent 1/18 - passed 2/11

    Kind of higher than what I was originally looking to spend, but figured getting '12 and '13 points as opposed to all the stripped contracts I was finding, made the price more reasonable.

    This is my first contract...pretty excited to finally own! :D

    I did the opening day prices for cruises and it took a LOT of extra space, to make it work. Grab post 1, 2, and 3. You need only put a period or something to hold the spots, this way you will have the room if needed.

    Hardly anyone looks at each individual thread post (just when they want to congratulate, which makes the thread long), so your first few thread postings are what they are there to view (mostly).

    Nice of you to do this!

    No problem. :goodvibes



    I'll try using both for now. If I can't keep up with the code format then I'll scrap it. pirate:



    Welcome Home!




    Well, we'll see if I can get through the next 4 months. May & June is my busy time so we will see if I can keep both formats updated. :lmao:

    I don't mind the extra posts. It makes it more personal… plus people should be getting congratulated when they pass! :thumbsup2
