Re: Nine Principles

Thanks for all the feedback! Too bad so much of it is irrelevant to my observation. I am neither dehydrated, bent out of shape nor in disagreement with BMOrg's prerogative to trademark whatever it likes, up to and including Larry's hat (if it weren't most likely already trademarked by J.B. & Co.). ...

Nine Principles

Not to belabor the obvious, trademarking Burning Man, the Man, Black Rock City etc.
is by definition of "trademark", commodifying
Black Rock City, the Man, Burning Man etc.

Re: Ticket Distribution

To Trilobyte, Yes, early payment and late delivery may be the norm, however, it has not been the norm in the past for this particular event and judging from the number of holes in the org's feet this year, should not remain so in the future. Encouraging to hear that there is talk of resurrecting th...

Re: Ticket Distribution

Junglesnacks, Good advice! How come you don't heed it? There is a better than even chance that I will not be going this year! theCryptofishist, The idea is to include all those Senators and Congress types! They don't accomplish much more than the Burn anyway, one of the finest features of which is ...

Ticket Distribution

I find the following statement from JRS (Jack Rabbit Speaks) to be somewhat disconcerting! I hope indeed that what we have seen this year vis à vis ticket sales and distribution is not indicative of this year's burn, and even more so, of the future of the Burning Man LLC and/or the Burning Man Proj...

12 STEP Program for 10 Principals!

Lest you be uninformed of just exactly what…well decide for yourself! Based on the estimation of the number of "regulars" who did not get drawn (... "major theme camp and art group organizers, we determined that only 20%-25% of the key people needed to bring those projects to the playa had received...

Re: The Solution

= The solution is.. ( this year everyone fucked with the system) First, stop fucking with the system.. The house always wins.. Your system is moot.. Burners register for the tier they can afford, for only the tickets they need. Let the lottery spin it's self out.. Your ticket didn't come up on your...

Re: The Solution

I think that if people can't get a permit for their RV then they can find new creative solutions to their dwelling situation. Those people who really need them for their theme camp can still get passes and be allowed. The tourist buses and lame RVs are huge eye sores… and most of the people are not...

The Solution

Single rate ticket prices sold in various lots on a first come first serve basis, say a third in Jan., a third in May and the remainder in Aug or as gate sales . Better yet, divide it into more lots, say five of 10,000 each, a limit of two tickets per purchase, limit the hours per day during the per...

Re: Tier Terrorists

Which pretty much defeats the "new" system's raisonne d'etre i.e. to "equalize" the odds! Frogbird wrote: "I don't think that this is the reason for the new system.

Re: Tier Terrorists

"People could just put off their purchases until very late, knowing that there is no gain in buying early." Unless, of course, say 95% of all the tickets were only offered for sale in the months of, say January or February! Still feel that a single price tier would be the fairest and most hassle-fre...

Re: Tier Terrorists

Thanks for all the feedback folks! Some of you, it would seem had too much fun on New Year's Eve! Where did I say anything about a conspiracy? I simply point out that regardless of how the tiers are distributed by the process that has been defined and disclosed to date, the distribution process cann...

Tier Terrorists

So to increase my odds, I have decided to enter all 3 tiers. I end up being the 5999th name drawn. What tier tickets do I get? Although, that issue has, I'm sure been addressed somewhere in the ridiculous amount of verbiage generated by the "new" system, I have not been able to readily find the answ...
