Re: Shitcan and start over !?!

just ask winners to upload a photo and a enter a name for each ticket they won, before feb 22. After that they lose their tickets.

Re: Please make the final 10,000 non refundable tickets. Lim

They still can make the 50,000 tickets non-transferable if they want... I hope they will consider to do so

Re: Wanna total mess over scalpers – here is an idea -

The scanner and DB system already exists and is used for early entry. It could be scaled up without a lot of changes. I don't know how often it's down, but it appeared to be pretty solid the few times I've been through. And at least for early entry the scanning is one of the fastest stages in the w...

Re: Scalping Discussion

Damage control - What BM should do for 2012 1) notify by email people who got tickets from the lottery that,yes, for 2012, they will have to upload a photo and provide a name before february 12 to all the tickets awarded. The date is near so scalpers will not have a lot of time to virtually sell non...

Re: Wanna total mess over scalpers – here is an idea -

good idea.

in return it would need a sort of central db with scanners at the gate to certify that the unique id is still "valid"... such a system could cause a lot of problems during a week-long event in a desert...

Re: Burning Man 2012 Tickets FAQ

I heard a rumour that something like 250 000 submissions were made to the lottery. Clearly this is B.S.. How could the system be improved? What if tickets were made to be non-transferable - i.e. one ticket for one flesh-and-blood human being - and if for some reason you can't go, tickets can only g...

Re: Scalping Discussion

yeah, checking ID's.......it's not like going to a concert: vehicles have to be searched, if a vehicles has many participants within, they all have to get out, and hand their ticket over one at a time....... Imagine the fun, of taking ID's and having to scan or whatever, each person. Then, search t...

Re: Lotto... tempting regular folks into scalping?

I'd go score some face value tickets from burners or the "official resellers market" (and I've yet to meet anyone who planned to use that, by the way) and turn them over on CL or eBay. So true, they will buy on STEP and resell on eBay, so the system is defeated. A possible solution for 2012 would b...
