Re: Low Income + STEP Program.

Nothing yet for myself, or a co-teacher/friend who also applied for LIT. I counted the days, and Thursday (5/16/15) was day 42 for me (which is how long they say we might have to wait for the email), so at this point, it is pure torture. I've done it the past two years, and was accepted. Both times...

Re: Low Income + STEP Program.

Has anyone been notified about their Low Income Ticket status yet? It's been 6 weeks, still nada.

Re: Low income debate

I think what Trilobyte also hinted to was that the comments here are paying disproportionate attention to this matter when there are so many other things that BMORG spends money on that could also be (pointlessly) debated. This thread is about the low-income program. Not law-enforcement, or permit ...

Re: Low income debate

...and 5) If the LIT program were to be discontinued, do you think the ticket price would go down by $14 or the equivalent of 4% of next year's ticket price? No fucking way. You will always pay the market value for the ticket, not the market value plus the cost of the LIT program. >>> LIT HAS NO EFF...

Re: Low income debate

I think graidawg is determined to waste his time. I'm curious though, grai, do you spend equal or greater amounts of time complaining about all the other companies you do business with who "tax" you with their giving? Even your local grocery store gives to charity, and I'd wager that the companies ...

Re: Low income debate

Re: Low income tickets and early entrance

I was really thankful for being able to go last year on one, and gave it back to the (big art) camp in many extra hours on and off-playa. I will again this year. If I could afford a full price ticket, I would buy one. Maybe next year? No extra feathers on my head, just a little more sweat. There are...

Re: Low income tickets and early entrance

How about we take the $1.9 million in lost ticket revenue from the 10k LIT tickets and apply that savings to the rest of the tickets? At current prices, that would bring prices down $38/ticket. As for LIT consideration, make it 100% dependent on level of volunteer work contribution. No more freebie...

Re: Low income tickets and early entrance

Nice to know that you could have afforded a full price DD ticket were it offered yet went ahead and cheated the system to save a buck. Nice work. Can we pull the plug on the LIT system yet? Junglesmacks, the person who sent me the email inviting me for the distributed ticket did not know that I had...

Re: Low income tickets and early entrance

Surprised to get an early response approving my LI ticket application! I'm pretty stoked. It was supposed to take up to 6 weeks. I was also on the directed distribution email list for my camp, so I'm wondering if this had any influence on the early approval. They haven't even removed the link yet to...

Re: Anyone else actually EXCITED for BM 2012

I've been wanting to go for many years. After seeing friends' pics and watching videos and drooling over the glorious madness, I was determined to go this year. I chose not to despair about the lottery ticket shortage. I followed the tense posts on Eplaya. It was a real learning experience, one that...

New system next year please! Not just because I didn't get a ticket. The person who mentioned that next year is going to be much worse (people buying too many to make sure they get one) has a very good point. People will modify their tactics with new hindsight and excessive ordering will probably be...
