Re: 2020 BRC Event Canceled

"60% of the work we do is dedicated to the year-round cultural programs." What does "60% of the work" mean? 60% of the org's expenditures?

Re: 2015 Moop Map

Here's the final 2014 map for reference: http://blog.burningman.com/2014/10/environment/moop-map-2014-black-rock-city-will-rise-again/ What the heck happened on Esplanade this year? I think Opulent Temple has a pretty good case to get their placement back next year, assuming they want to come back. :)

Re: Lost burner express ticket

Since your name is on your ticket, I'm guessing that if you show up at the BX check in with your ID, you should be ok.

Re: New! Ticket Transfer Option!

Sweet, now that this functionality has been implemented, print-at-home tickets shouldn't be too far behind. That would almost completely eliminate people showing up with bogus tickets, and eliminate the uncertainty of knowing if a ticket bought from a 3rd party is legit or not.

Couple of Burner Express questions

Hi, I have a couple of questions regarding Burner Express. First, when does it normally sell out? I'm camping with a village this year, and since placement hasn't been finalized, I don't know if I'll have an EA pass. If I don't get one, I'd like to do Burner Express on Sunday. I'm just wondering if ...

Scalpers aren't really the problem, the problem is counterfeiters and more people picking up their tickets on-site than will call is able to handle. Mailing out STEP and OMG tickets this year will hopefully make a difference, but I reiterate that the ultimate solution will be print-at-home tickets, ...

The queue page auto refreshed about once per minute. So, if you clicked the link before the sale started and didn't manually refresh, you could have been up to a minute behind. But yeah, it's not when you clicked, it's when the ticketfly server received your request. And there are factors that could...

Most of those "tickets" were on Stubhub before the sale today. Those people are banking that they'll be able to get a ticket for less than the $1000 (or whatever they're asking), and make a profit. There are 400 tickets for sale already on Stubhub for $1000 each. Vehicle passes for $400. $1800 profi...

I understand what you're saying, but if tickets can be transferred between accounts, then buyers can demand that the seller actually transfer the ticket to them, as opposed to just emailing them a pdf file.

You're right, you can't cure stupid.

All of the major sports leagues (or at least MLB and NFL) do electronic transfer, and it works well. The way they do it is that you log into their site to transfer a ticket, and the person you're transfering it to gets an email from the sports team (not from the seller) with a link that will transfe...
