In Dec 2006, Wyndham decided to close the coffe shop. They offered the following explaination for that decision:
We also provided a venue called the Coffee Shop which allowed for more unstructured discussion of WorldMark related topics. In recent months the Coffee Shop portion of the forum has become underutilized and is no longer serving its original purpose as a constructive place for owners to visit and exchange ideas with other owners. In recent months, 90% of the Coffee Shop posting has been generated by no more than 50 owners. As the Coffee Shop is no longer a value added service enjoyed by the WorldMark ownership as a whole, the decision has been made to eliminate this venue from the WorldMark forum.
