Re: What the actual *?!$?!

You essentially gifted your ticket to another burner in the queue. Yay! All is well. ;) Trust a burner to put a positive spin on it. Pah. Please allow me my grumpiness ;) On a more serious note (or is it really? In today's world) I may have not been gifting my tix. This is a fuckup, pure and simple...

Re: The VP mess

Is this real? Not enough VPs?

read this: https://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic.php?f=417&t=73347

Perhaps that's why they think they've run out; they "sold" a load to ppl who didn't "buy" them?

What the actual *?!$?!

/begin rant Ok, so I only come here once a year to bitch. Let's get that out of the way now, so at least there is something to flame me for ;) So, like everyone else, I sat in front of my mac on the 18th at 20:00GMT.

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

Loving the way the Borg is giving us a new thing to bitch about every year! What next year I wonder? Mandated Tank Girl boots for the ladies and tutus for the guys? FTR I think vehicle passes are a great idea. Anything that lowers the vehicle count in/around/off Playa is good in my book, but what do...

Re: The Individual Sale has started!

sounds about right..I got in at 30 seconds in and waited about 1hr 40 I guess..Less stressful than the lottery and not a game anymore.

Remember people: there were unsold and unused tix right up to and through the event last year. Trust.

Re: So, what the fuck qualifies as a mutant vehicle?

I almost ran over two darktards having sex in the deep playa. I agree, but this cuts both ways - I saw (on Burn night so I wasn't in a full mental state to report it to the BRC Rangers) a furry white thing, not a golf buggy, but a real full car-size MV with NO lights on, and speeding (at least 15mp...

This is much better..It also encourages the formation of groups..I like SnowBlind's idea of one entry per group, too..It has to be a level playing field in terms of odds or you'll just catch ePlaya on fire again and everyone will form mobs and kill small animals :twisted: :twisted:
