Use(less)r Guidelines doc

I have no idea what the 8 pages of undoubted drivel say. The eplaya seems to be 'useful' ony to a dozen chatty friends. Democratic forums like this one will always crumble to the same ruin. I'd much rather see an autocracy in place.

and CERTAINLY no communal kitchen. What a nightmare that was. I'm sorry to hear that. Bigger communal kitchens always sounded like a fairly good idea to me. What was the problem? This year we ended up being the Black Rock Hilton for a lot of people -- a lot of people who booked at 5 AM on Monday. W...

Um, if I recall correctly, Pink & Purple is male.
Listen, it's my fantasy, and I'll have them girls if I want to.

It's all pretty fascinating to me. I was poking around the Gigsville web site and I must admit that part of me just loves the map. I have the best camp I can imagine - good friends, an incredible luxurious Morrocan tent, a kitchen of seemingly bottomless supplies of food and drink, floor completely ...

OK, thanks for the posts, that helps me understand things a little better. From the outside, I could never really tell what was going on. I've been going to BM since 1996, and certainly I'd heard of Gigsville, but hadn't had any experience with the villiage. Passing by, it was unclear where the boun...

I understand some of the concepts of a villiage, and am considering trying to join one next year, but am confused as to what would make something a villiage if it had no communal space, no communal projects, no communal _____. Assume that each post of mine starts with a "I don't know what I'm talkin...

That's why Gigsville works. Each individual camp within the village is autonomous, as are individual campers. There are no village dues. Someone wants a project done, that someone does it. I don't get what makes it a villiage then. Somebody please explain the difference between my camp and my neigh...

Open relationships are bulllshit. They just don't work. Monogamy, throwing out the gausian highs and lows, is THE ONLY system of it's kind to survive the x thousands of years of human evolution. People are quick to point out that our reptilian brains want to fuck everything in site with a colorful t...

attydog, i loved that wheel! i didn't ride it but it was a beautiful thing to see rolling across the playa at dusk Well that is a fine thing to hear - thank you. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in whatever I'm doing out there that I don't see the forest through the trees. I only had the wheel out for...

I made a really huge (15 ft) wooden wheel this year, sort of like a giant hamster wheel. We ended up doing all sorts of fun stuff with it, like stuffing two people onto the outer rim and having another two people run it across the desert like a traveling ferris wheel. I usually had a crowd of people...

What would you do with this?
The Segway looks rather unadorned, no?
That wheel's got no blinking things on it for christ's sake!
Where's the EL wire? What's his playa name? Why isn't he wearing a kooky furry hat?
Stone him! Fine him!

This year I started with a goldf cart. I tore that sucker down and rebuilt her in the exact likeness of a Ford Taurus. It was fucking incredible work. I drove her around like a proud father at precisely 4.5 mph only to be booed and heckled by the ignorant, and finally shut down for good by the holie...
