Re: Who got tickets in the Individual Sale?

No it isn't, but neither is patience. For what it's worth, there hasn't been a high demand on-sale in the ticket business that hasn't made ticket servers creak and groan. See, that is what kills me, I've built out clusters that can shrug off millions of people hitting it, can scale up and down on d...

You know, infrastructure scaling isn't rocket science. *sigh*

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

Vehicle Passes can be purchased when you buy tickets online. Maybe writing scripts and parsing EDI files the last two days has broken me, but does that mean if I am gifted a ticket, I can't buy a vehicle pass? Or just that I will need to enter the ticket lotto, and then just buy the pass and not th...

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

I assume this will not apply to a towed in vehicle? I tow in the Mutard each year for Thunderdome, use it the week before for transport, let camp mates take it for bathroom runs (Seriously, it turns into the camp whore by the 2nd day of the pre-week), then park it as camp decor for the event (becaus...

Re: YOUR THEME CAMP ISN'T THAT IMPORTANT .. and other though

Yeah exactly, it's not speculation any more. Really disappointed in this news, as are many of my friends, many of whom have volunteered in the org for several years all the way to 15 years... We have made the difficult decision to take the 10,000 tickets that were slated to be sold via the Secondar...

Wake the fuck up.
Hey Donna!

Yup, I'm starting to cringe as I see my DG/TD campmates starting to chime in that they were denied.

Going to be an interesting year indeed.

Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

edit: I also want to bring to the attention of this community that stored credit card numbers are a terrible idea, sony, steam, amazon, all have in the pretty recent past had massive leaks, they have far better IT people than our prior ticketing agent, I do not feel comfortable with them holding my...
