Have you seen the latest on the CC in the Airbnb Updates section? (Which has no comments yet, even thought it shows as posted 3 days ago)
"Hosts gave us a lot of feedback in the past year, whether you discussed topics here in the Community Center, commented through our submission form, or participated in one of over 50 listening sessions worldwide. We listened, and then we went to work.
Today we’re excited to roll out some major upgrades you’ve been asking for."
I would like to know exactly which hosts asked for:
Elimination of IB requirements.
Elimination of “not suitable for infants”.
“Guests should not leave moldy dishes…”
“Guests should not smoke inside…”
“Guests should not bring pets inside…”
Elimination of pre-booking message.
Making it easier for new hosts to sign up, flooding the market.
Encouraging hosts to offer “quality” listings at rock bottom prices.
Have I left out any new “upgrades” that no host ever would have asked Airbnb for?
