Theme suggestion...

I'd love to see a "power's of 10" theme. Alternately, this theme could be called "macro micro", "Size matters", or "new perspective". While we see a lot of this at burning man already, it would give people an excuse to look at the tiniest of details or global impacts. From a practical point of view,...

Missing signs...

As someone who volunteers days after the event, it kinda sucks not having street signs. Landmarks are great, but landmarks vanish rapidly. On my last day on the playa, I resorted to counting the rows of porta-poties from center camp to find my street. :D How about we bring some extra slats of wood, ...

Jumping on the bandwagon...

I have to agree with Rob and Maldita... There is no "they" who are going to make the changes that you speak of... it's us. If there are changes to be made, you or me or we should make them. Burning Man is about coming up with fantastic ideas and then executing on them so let's not just talk about it...

Respectfully Disagree

I respectfully disagree with you. If people left their valuables at home, half the costumes, art, instruments, vehicles, and other treasures, would be noticibly missing from the event. Call me idealistic, but instead of telling people to leave their valuables at home, why don't we watch out for one ...

Gas Powered Scooters

Yeah... I'd be happy if all gas powered vehicles were made to live up to the Mutant Vehicle code. Those little scooters are terribly noisy and make no positive contribution to the event, except for the rider. I was out exploring art on in the deep playa one evening early in the week and one of those...

Thoughts on New DMV Art Car policies

Does anyone have any post-event thoughts on the new DMV Art Car policies?

Do you feel that the 2004 event was safer in regards to mutant vehicles? Does having more strict ArtCar rules, preregistration, an art car database, and an impound lot make the event better or worse?

Image Subforum - Start threads from image gallery

I think it would be really useful if we had a way of starting a thread/topic based on a photo in the image gallery (or playa artifacts). These threads could go into some sort of "image talk" subforum and at the top of each thread/topic, the image that is being discussed could be displayed. The image...

Body Graffiti with Sharpies

I've had quite a bit of experience with using sharpies on skin. Sharpie tends to stay on fairly well, but it also easily transfers when you sweat (for better or for worse - you can leave your mark when you hug someone). Sharpie ink comes off rather easily (posibly too easily for a so-called permanen...

Size Matters...

jbelson,

Yeah... I've been thinking that a "Size Matters" theme or village would work well on the playa. Small things blown up to large scale... large things brought down to earth... Remember that old "Powers of 10" movie? Seems like there are some really fun possibilities.

Re: coinciding costume themes

Perhaps you should plan coinciding costumes. Since things never seem to go as planned on the playa, you're sure to be unique. I think that "Precipitate" had it right. People should create the costumes that they enjoy most and they shouldn't be too concerned that others that come up with the same gre...
