Extend your TUG membership by writing reviews!

Ok here is the deal.

From now on, each and every REVIEW submitted successfully into the TUG database system here:

http://tug2.com/RnR/RateAndReviewResort.aspx

Will earn the submitting user a 2 month extension award credit on your membership, no questions asked. (or you can use this for a free classified ad if you wish)

There are no quality, length, or content requirements to earn this award...ANY REVIEW QUALIFIES! (within reason of course =) )

Any exceptional review, as decided by the TUG staff will receive a 6 month membership extension review credit award. (or free classified ad).

Also as always any review of a resort that has not been reviewed in the past 6 months will also earn a 6 month review award credit. (these are awarded about a month after submission as the review managers submit these to me separately).

While I will not send out an email for each and every 2 month award, you will get email confirmation about the granting of the 6month award.

Any time your membership is up for renewal, you can request the use of these awards to extend your membership! (a reminder is also in each renewal letter).

So in summary.

Any review = 2 month membership extension award (or free ad)

Exceptional review = 6 month membership extension award (or 3free ads)

6 month since last review = 6 month membership extension award (or 3 free ads)

)


questions or comments can either be posted here...or sent to me directly to tug@tug2.net

I hope you're right, but awards have always been available for resort reviews where the previous one was 6 months old or more. Just raising the profile of the awards may have an effect as was apparent with the 'Special Offer' in March.

Thanks for clarifying the 6 months since the last review. Since my earlier post I was thinking I could maximize the extensions by submitting reviews every 6 months, but I'd need to travel less. Now I see I missed the proposition entirely.

What a great incentive to update the older reviews!

Any incentive for members to encourage submission of reviews has to be a good thing. I suspect only a small percentage of members do write reviews and I really do think that's a pity. Whilst there is often still perfectly valid information in older reviews, even small updates along the lines of "The previous reviews are accurate but ..... is new / changed/ .... is still worthwhile.

Headed to Grand Bahama Island in July, I will be writing another review! Last one was in March to Cabo. This is a good incentive.

This is a great incentive for all of us to post honest reviews. We all benefit from each others reviews. I have noted many reviews quite old so hopefully this updates a lot of them. Thanks!!

now make where to post reviews more obvious.

You need a large prominent button that says "click her to post review and access form for reviews." I always have a hard time locating the right place to click.

How do you know that your subscription was extended. I submitted two reviews for our Hawaii trip, but I don't know that my submissions extended our membership.

My Husbands name appears on my reviews!

I am the TUG member but I use his EMail and for some reason his name appears on my reviews. Weird. Can you fix this?

Reviews prior to June?

Do reviews submitted prior to June qualify for the extension? I submitted in January of 2007.
