Re: Proposal for ticketing system 2013

Where did they say this lottery was an anti-scalper technique? I've seen other people also claim it so I am curious where you read it, since I didn't read it. And it certainly isn't an anti-scalper system so if somebody wrote that they may have been in error. BMORG recently called it 'Balance of op...

Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

Having worked for a Company that leased land from the BLM, I can tell you that you certainly must answer to the entity leasing the property. They after all have liability and I can guaranfuckintee you that the BLM doesn't want it.

Re: 2012 TICKET PRICES INCREASED TO $390! WTF???

I think that whatever it costs to run is what they should charge. I would really hate it if tickets eventually became subsidized by a more influential entity that had a larger say over BM. I'm really buying into this radical inclusion thing and going to BM for the first time this year. Seems like a ...

Re: Proposal for ticketing system 2013

The system they have now is just a money grab. It does not stop the professional scalpers that have the resources to game the system. This lottery has been sold to us as a way to combat scalpers and it does not ultimately do that. It just narrows it to a few well established scalpers. Why not initia...

Re: Possible solution for going forward.

I think I understand where you're coming from, and the plan sounds even worse now. By "going forward" you don't mean with the 2012 burn, but for 2013 and beyond. And your plan involves what, handing out physical scratchers on the playa? That seems even more manually intensive, to say noth...

Re: Possible solution for going forward.

Since you asked… It seems very poorly thought out, impossible to actually administer, and unfair to people. It's resource intensive (making and sending out tens of thousands of scratch cards, plus the necessary work to handle it on the server end), it doesn't take into consideration that people may...

Re: Burning Man should buy land and fuck being a BLM hostage

I like that it's held on public land. It helps to bring awareness to how delicate something as desolate as a desert is to 50,000 people each year. Sure not all of them get it. I'm sure a lot do!

Re: The Crazies are Arriving in Full Force

Looks like just a bunch of people freaking because they are afraid they won't win a lottery. Pretty normal stuff when you think about it in context. You got people who are really fragile freaking out and threatening to jump off a bridge and others being calm, others clueless.

From the description of the Camp, I'm going with.. Comfy Retreat To Talk.

And I don't think that is a bad thing, like lemur's post implies, as constructive as his post is.

You should create a website that's sole function is to call out MOOPers and publicly humiliate them in a humerus manner.

Re: How will this Tent fair on the Playa?

Thanks all for the feedback. It looks like a good trade with not many downsides. The vehicle is an old VW Vanagon that's probably worth 3k.. it's going to need work soon.

How will this Tent fair on the Playa?

I have an opportunity to trade a used vehicle that I no longer use for this Tent, and I'm wondering how well it will hold up on the Playa. I would most certainly use this thing for other adventures but I'm interested to know if I should use it at BM. I'm a virgin btw, just trying to plan for 2012. h...

I'm looking for a Camp that I can participate in. I would like to find one based out of the SF Bay Area so that I can possibly help with any prep leading up to BM.
