Re: What criteria would you use to give away a free ticket

I disagree. There's much less attention when it's anonymous. If I used my name, people would meet me and potentially say "oh, so-and-so! You're the one who gave away that ticket, I recognize your super-unique name which I've noticed other places!". This way, there's none of that. Any 'attention' I'v...

Re: What criteria would you use to give away a free ticket

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

What's a dude like me who has only been for one year, hasn't made the connections yet but has put considerable effort into it, and didn't luck out with the lottery to do?

Re: My observation about gifting tickets..

It sounds like you're letting the process get the better of you. Why should someone who promises something you haven't asked for and don't need, and then doesn't deliver on that, make a difference? You're not gifting them a ticket on condition of anything, so why bother worrying about it? Maybe they...
