Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

I'm STRONGLY against the lottery system. First-come-first-serve rewards those that really want to go and organize. The lottery system is bad because it doesn't penalize those that come late in the game and only half-commit only if it's convenient to go (usually first years). The tickets sold out la...

With the lottery system a person does not know if they are going to get a ticket or their camp mates a...

Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

This is a really terrible idea for a number of reasons. 1. Large camps may end up losing key members due to sheer bad luck. 2. Small camps may end up losing people who are NECESSARY to actually get there (i.e: transportation). 3. Families might end up with one member getting a ticket and another me...
