Re: The ticket SNAFU and a proposed fix

I resist the idea of putting the theme camps in some special position in order to get tickets. Then you'll have people doing theme camps in order to get tickets. Yes, they'd have to be successful enough to get the nod, but I still think it's a big invitation to get fucked. And giving them a discoun...

Re: The ticket SNAFU and a proposed fix

Yup, my bad. The topic is all over the place and I just wanted to make sure someone saw it. Didn't know there was a term for this.

Instead of focusing on "skipping", how about the idea?

Re: Positive Suggestions for Fixing What Is Obviously Broken

You can't really call back tickets now. You have to run damage control, and fast. Sure, Burning Man will still happen one way or another, but the situation has completely fucked the Karma for those who call Burning Man their home. The biggest problem right now is theme camps. Folks are pissed off an...

Re: Lets start talking about how to fix this

Not sure how you would fix it this late - horse is already out of the gate. But there definitely needs to be some damage control done. And I didn't think the system was broke, but I would like to see those who contribute to the community (theme camps, musicians, artists, etc) get priority when it co...

Re: Official "Awarded Tickets" Thread

You guys should visit the "didn't get tickets" forum. It's not just bitching, there's some valid concerns. And some serious concerns for this year's BM. The biggest concern is that key people in theme camps didn't receive a ticket, and no one is willing to start prep unless they know for certain the...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

It used to be that if you didn't get tickets, it was probably your own damn fault for procrastinating. No one to blame but yourself. What was wrong with that? I'm thinking the way to handle this should've been to communicate with the community. It's obvious that they need to cap the event at 50,000 ...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

"This Blows" is putting it mildly. I just hope someone is reading this from BMC since this is the fastest I've seen the community turn ugly, and the only way to salvage this now is to do some seriously quick damage control. As it is, several members of our theme camp "Swing City" did not make the cu...
