Help with Passwords on TUG

Passwords are used to control access and activity in several areas of the TUG Website:
  • The Members-Only sections of the website. Several key areas of the TUG website are reserved for TUG Members, such as resort reviews, resort ratings, permanent swaps and the sales database. Details are given below.
  • The TUG Bulletin Board System is an independent automated program. You need not be a TUG Member to use the TUG BBS. You must, however first register with the BBS and receive your BBS password before you can login or post a message. The UserName and Password used on the BBS are unique to each user. Details are given below. 

Password Help for the TUG Members Only Section

Password Help for TUG Bulletin Board System

The TUG Bulletin Board (BBS) is a free independent automated forum program which is open to all users, both TUG members and non-members.

In order to POST messages to the BBS, you must REGISTER as a user of the BBS and log into your BBS account.
IMPORTANT: Joining TUG and obtaining a Member Username and Member Password does NOT automatically register you for the BBS. You must do this yourself.
Public forums on the BBS may be READ without registering as a BBS user, or logging into your BBS account.
During BBS registration, you will select a unique BBS UserName and BBS Password which will allow you to log into your BBS account.
If you already have a username and password for the TUG Member-only Areas (discussed above), we suggest you choose the same username and password for your bbs access, so that the same login information will work in both areas.
The BBS program then emails the user a confirmation email that must be acted upon to activate the registration.
If you don't receive this email within a few minutes, click here.
If you receive this email, but are having trouble activating your account, click here.
Click here to begin the registration process.
If you know your BBS password and can log into your account, you may change the BBS password to anything you wish. Please click here for detailed instructions on this procedure.
NOTE: Changing your bbs information does not make changes to your TUG member account. Please Help for Members Only Section (above) to make changes to your TUG membership information.
The BBS stores passwords in encrypted form and will not reveal them even to the system administrators. Consequently, lost passwords CANNOT be recovered. There is, however, an automated procedure for recovering your BBS UserName and having your BBS Password reset. Please click here for detailed instructions on this procedure.
If you continue to have problems accessing the BBS, please contact our volunteer BBS Administrators, via this form.

Why become a TUG member?

There is an extended TUG resort reviews database here on this web site available only to TUG members. There are over 4000 resorts covered by this database now and growing weekly. The reviews also include pictures of the resorts, general resort information and a list of owners' email addresses who are willing to answer additional questions regarding the resorts not covered by the detailed reviews.   This is a quick way to see how our members rate the resorts which they have actually stayed at. It has become a valuable source of information to use when planning for exchanges.
