Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

[quote="lucky420"]yeah but bucket listers can turn into life long burners...[/quote] It was a bucket list for me after seeing a documentary about it when I was 16 in 2001. I consider myself a life long burner... when step hits the next second it'll be my 4th year :) Vampirekitten, keep working hard....

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

Woot! I'm getting closer :)

Hopefully no one got skipped, though the forum mentioned before that sometimes the timestamps are just guidelines.. so maybe it was a fluke to go so forward (But hopefully not and tons of step tickets just came in!)

Re: A disappointed burner's useless Internet rant

Getting a ticket last year was good luck, but like many who got tickets this year in the lottery got lucky too. I feel bad for the people who for TWO years in a row got left out due to the tickets running out. Ouch. My plan if I can't make it this year is to travel out to one of the bigger burner ev...

Re: STEP has launched... but server crashed immediately

Got into the STEP program. They sent a confirmation email too, so if you are second guessing make sure to check that. They also mentioned in a later email that they are just allowing a certain amount of people in the program right now.. and to check back randomly to re-enter. Seems like the crashing...

What we are doing with the 'extra money' (w/o tix) :)

We've all been holding those extra funds for the tickets -- we now have a bit more freedom in spending it! What are you planning to do with part of it? I'm keeping most for the STEP program.. but today I went on a grocery trip and bought a few 'indulge' items (veggie lasagna, fave salad dressing and...

Re: Shut the FUCK up about virgins.

Total agree.. I was sad when the virgins started saying they didn't feel welcomed anymore. I think if you are a pretentious burner you aren't really a burner.

They forget that the scalpers also didn't get all the tickets they wanted though. But at least the NEW scalpers won't get further ahead of us.

I agree.. my friend won a ticket and he's a virgin! There are people last year who got tickets as virgins who I thought "Why haven't they been here sooner?" A virgin doesn't make you less of a burner, it hurts for us who want to return home -- but virgins sometimes need the beauty of burning man eve...

Re: Tickets AVAILABLE

If you don't buy, then supply and demand forces the prices to go down. That's fine if you buy -- but it just helps enable them. I'd love to see these guys lose a crap load of money. I'd rather make my own local burn with that extra $600... or even donate to a project on the playa that I'll never see.

Re: Sad...when I should be extremely happy

I think you are all really sweet to be so empathetic. I think all any real burner wants to is the burner spirit to continue - that those who got tickets instead of us goes out and participates in every way they can. The moments where a lot of us without tickets get angry are when we think who might ...

Re: Scalping Discussion

Scalpers will crumble if we don't give in to their high prices. If they crumble hard this year -- they wouldn't touch this event with a ten foot pole next year! Let them sit for a few months holding these tickets that burners refuse to buy... they'll get desperate and drop any high prices.

Burning man isn't free because they need to pay others to make the event work (bathrooms, clean up, machine equipment) Scalpers are disliked because they turn buying a ticket into a business.

The one thing I think might come up is that people overbuy tickets but can't sell them quick enough... maybe instead of prices going up, we find they dip down a bit because of burners with 4 extra tickets they don't want. Who knows.. maybe the secondary market will scare away all the scalpers from n...
