Re: It "could" be true?

I don't think real demand increased two, three or four fold. I guess one indicator would be the number of people signed up for JRS (also the number who were signed up when tickets sold out last year). That would be a good proxy. I still think it is scalpers (or scalpels if you prefer). I think it i...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

I'm not going to say how I feel about this lottery because I think BMO has been bashed enough. They made a mistake. They are only human and we all do it. The saying goes "To err is human, to forgive is divine". The real test of BMO's character will be how they handle this mistake. Are they finally ...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

Yeah, let's just sit around and wait. Suggest going in 2013 or some awesome idea like that. Okay, more "data". We had 23 people request tickets (I believe but am not sure they all requested two). 3 people got tickets. Two received 2 tickets but one of them got four tickets (obvious glitch). Anyway, ...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

Or perhaps my views are not based on what the public is being told. Or perhaps I am waiting until the speculation is replaced by facts. I never said Burners are sitting on all the tickets. I only offer that as an explanation that is just as viable as "the scalpers did this". Again, Cites? I'd cite ...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

I cannot sign a petition that begins with an assumption rather than a fact. There is no conclusive evidence that scalpers are the cause of the ticket situation. With only 78 of the 40,000 plus tickets sold have made it to StubHub I would like to see cites of where your information comes from if it ...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

cburkey very good post. read it all. couldn't agree more. flippant is also one of the new principles. reality is a hard bite to swallow - unless you're gay and no, not that gay... I mean gay in the "I am happy no matter what" gay. you know... in the common sense. at first my anger was toward BORG.....

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

As someone who is holding three tickets, I find "scrap the whole thing" to be a terrible idea. I'd imagine anyone holding tickets just now would object strenuously to such a plan. I do feel for those who are ticketless, but really? Hand me a prize then rip it away because there isn't enough for the...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

I can't wait for the JRS on this. It's really bothering me that I don't know how to solve our problem.

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

So if my math is right (based on what I've read and my own camp's high fail rate), they must have received ~200,000 ticket requests (mostly @ 2/request). Didn't BM think something was up? I'm hoping this gets worked out quickly but I fear it is what it appears to be - i.e. A disaster.

I got my rejection letter. I'm crushed. I registered at the $390 level just to be careful. :( :( :(
