Re: Temple Burn - Sunday at 8PM

(this post is here bvecaues there is no thread, or even forum, that fits it better) "Law enforcement" (and BM's rabid embracement/dicksucking of it) destroyed the spirit of BM. Of 60k parcicipants, 10k are old-timers wishing it was the way it used to be, and 50k are newbies wishing/pretend...

Exciting! The 12:10s have begun. I'm 12:10:53 :) The STEP order is in the registrant's name. If person A registered for and got two tickets in STEP, two tickets would be waiting in person A's name at will call. Those tickets are non-transferable, person A *must* be the person to pick them up at will...

I don't think the queue is slow, I just think that there are a lot of people on the 12:09 slot. There may or may not be lots of people at the 12:09 slot, but the queue is almost definitely slow lately. Very few people are getting tickets right now. We used to have several per day reporting they got...

Soooooooooooooooo. The last known STEP offering was to someone with a 12:09:26 timestamp. Keeping in mind the timestamps officially mean nothing (but unofficially have been a great way to approximate when your place in line may be called), I'm estimating at least a couple more weeks (possibly severa...

Timestamps are not an Official indicator of anything. They are a participant created method of tracking, period. I say that makes them as "official" as anything you've come up with, pal. Burning Man is of-by-and-about the participants, NOT the "officials". Period. The timestamp ...

Sounds like they're finishing up with the 12:08ers now. Sadly that took over a week to get through that "minute"... so the pace is truly slug-like. 12:10 could be weeks or months away. But it does look like I'll get the chance, if things continue to move. I predict a large(ish) movement of...

Re: What Is It Worth?

Best cost for tickets is $0, but bills have to be paid, so the actual cost is (supposedly anyway) as close to $0 as possible. Raising the price of tickets not only makes Burning Man a for-profit event (even more than it already is), but it changes the demographic of who goes. From starving artist an...

A sentiment common amongst those who have tickets, but almost completely absent from those who don't. Regardless of their planning or not planning.

More correct would be "Those who are lucky, rich, or well-connected, burn."

Considering the majority of STEP tickets that will end up being dispensed are already gone, will the 12:04s be getting a chance at a ticket? Maybe by July, if at all?
I guess my 12:10 isn't as impressive as originally thought. Damn.
