Re: Pay Gate Workers/Names on THIS YEAR'S tickets

We have to be the solution. That ^^^^ I think most of us want to be. It would an extra 10 seconds at the gate to check each ID. If there's an issue with an ID and ticket not matching, the volunteers OR paid staff could resolve it intelligently and compassionately in a designated area near the gate....

Re: A FIX: Require registration for all tickets won in lotte

beyond solving the ticketing mess, there's a lot of healing needed as well. It saddens me that there's so much anger. I can understand that you're frustrated about seeing the same ideas posted, again and again. Can you see that so many people feel injured by this process? Telling people to shut up ...
