Owners Forum




Can anyone help me to be a part of the owners forum? I sent a PM to “Will” last week but he hasn’t responded.
Thanks

RE: Owners Forum




I can only tell you what I was told “be patient “. There seems to be quite a few of us trying....



RE: Owners Forum




Thank you. I will do my best, lol!


RE: Owners Forum




I’ve sent 3 messages. The first was the end of April & the last was the end of July. I’m still waiting.......


RE: Owners Forum




Is the forum for owners period or owners who rent?


RE: Owners Forum




Owners who rent


RE: Owners Forum




While a lot of them do rent, there are plenty who don't. Its not a rule.

Owners who rent

Not really all owners that rent. It's owners here that own, we don't discriminate between real owners and NRPO's.


You know I am just kidding Wink smiley


RE: Owners Forum




There is really not much that goes on over there other than a few owners asking questions about service guys and who does this or that in the area. Things you could post here but it is more for someone that has hired or worked with someone as an owner would. No hidden conversations about someone or things like that. Here is a screen shot just now.




RE: Owners Forum




If you’d like, maybe just go ahead and post in the main forum here any questions you might have. The owners forum was created some time ago when the property insurance posts got out of hand. Like 7-8 years ago?

I have zero ideas about why Will has been MIA lately but it has been most of 2020 now...

They probably want to know who has the best pizza and we have them ranked over there, as well as BBQ all ranked as to the best , so we can't mention them here or ...... well , you know = emotions flow

Are you saying we need separate forums for hurricanes and flooding events too so you can keep your emotions in check. Maybe a special food related forum?


RE: Owners Forum




I was really just hoping for a place to talk about the challenges of renting and get suggestions for managing guests and PMs. It’s my first year and it has been quite a learning curve.


RE: Owners Forum




I’ll send Will a message thru Facebook, I think this is his busy time of year with teens in HS and college.


RE: Owners Forum




If you happen to reach Will I would also like to be approved for the Owner's Forum too. I sent a private message a few times, but not response. I appreciate he is busy but if you happen to know him and could tell him about me too I thank you in advance.




RE: Owners Forum




I would also love to be included in the owners forum if he is adding people. Deciding whether or not to rent and I'd love to ask some questions.

Tim.. What are you doing? Shhhhh.. The first rule of owners forum, is that we don't talk about owners forum!


RE: Owners Forum




The discussion on this thread consistently points to one conclusion......you really don't want to be part of the "exclusive" owner's forum. Wink smiley


RE: Owners Forum




I'll politely say that certain topics attract a fair amount of noise from non-owners when discussed in a broad forum. Certain topics, such as PM company practices, guest issues, rate setting, rental agreements, etc., are not really suitable for public discussion. The discussions tend to be more business related than outer banks related; the one thing we all have in common is a general geographic location.

It would be like outer banks restaurant owners discussing business on a public forum; I wouldn't expect them to be discussing seafood sourcing, labor issues, and dealing with Dare Co health department on a general Outer Banks forum. I also wouldn't expect fishing charter captains to be discussing business with other captains on fishing forums either.

Thank you, Brad Z. That makes perfect sense to me. Some of the earlier comments (perhaps, tongue in cheek?) were not particularly helpful.


RE: Owners Forum




I also have messaged Will (back in the late spring) and have heard nothing Sad smiley


RE: Owners Forum




I am also waiting to be admitted.
