Re: Camp Envy 2018: Burner community without tickets and "burn curious"...

Re: Work access pass timing

I recall this question came up here on eplaya two or three years ago, and back then at least, it was confirmed that there was a temporary closing of the gate for a couple of hours just before the main event opening in order to reset computers, shift change, whatever. Not sure if any of this is still...

You'll get a good laugh at the thought of bringing your small-wheeled scooter once you get out there and get a sense of what the surface is actually like. It is sort of hard to imagine until you experience it firsthand. Definitely bring the bike though. Have fun InGearX!

Re: Desperately need one $425 pre-sale entry pass

For what it's worth, what I think you are looking for is a 'Main Sale' ticket, which costs $425. The Presale tickets are the $990 and $1200 versions. Just mentioning it so you don't inadvertently confuse someone right when you're in the middle of trying to make a deal.

Re: Do I need a photo ID for BM

If you have a physical ticket in hand and arrive in a car (truck, RV, etc) you won't need any ID to enter Black Rock City.

As GW said though, the bars will check your ID before they give you a drink.

The more I think about your idea ShaneB, the more I like it! A kind of Salon des Refusés for burner robots, with a hint of Cargo Cult and cacophony thrown in for good measure.

Re: Transfer tickets after shipping

I assume by 'in person' you mean a paper ticket. The physical paper ticket in hand is all you need to pass through gate, other than a Vehicle Pass. It doesn't matter at that point who purchased it originally. Do you know the seller? Be aware that tickets can become voided by the BMorg and become no ...

Re: Suggest changing Ticketfly passwords & phishing awareness June 2018

Have you been able to change your password yet? I haven't been able to log in to make a change; did you go the 'forgot my password' route instead? I did read one article which suggested that no credit card info was breached.
