Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

OK, I was hopeful I had it wrong - I'm on the outside of the 2,000. Getting notification would beat random checking if it does get close.

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

Did you hear something besides this?: Q: Will I be notified that the STEP queue is reopened for sign-ups? A: In the chance that we are able to re-open the queue we will post about it on http://tickets.burningman.com. Alternatively you can try your unique link to see if it works. from Will Chase e-ma...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

One of the things I learned at BM that is often hard in the default world is to not care what anyone else is thinking about you, or you of them. You're there to be yourself, to do your own thing, to give because you want to give. Participation is something you choose to do, not a chore or obligatio...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

The more I look at this PnP issue, the more I just don't really care about PnP camps if they have no outside effects other than their presence. In other words, as long as these camps aren't getting any special ticket allocations or privileges, they're pretty much background noise in my mind. I can ...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

I just have a hard time resolving the coexistence of profiteering from pay to play and a primarily volunteer workforce. In my experience – the BRC volunteer thing works like this: I do something good – You do something good. We create something better together for each other. Next time we want to do...

Re: Let the whine flow

It could be that it is to avoid a rush, like we had today. If the server capacity was rented (which is something I'm completely willing to believe--I saw "amazon" in the url) then they don't have to scale up and down the capacity at intervals. Also, if you're not checking often, they can claim that...

Re: Let the whine flow

Re: has anyone received the STEP participation Email?

If your camp does get tickets and you're able to purchase a ticket through that program, your STEP registration will be canceled at that time. If through some miracle you're able to purchase a non-transferable ticket through STEP and then your camp is awarded a ticket allotment, then your camp can ...

Re: has anyone received the STEP participation Email?

I did read the FAQ. Did I miss a section that addresses the cross pollination of STEP and Directed Ticket Distribution?

Hmmm. Ready, fire, aim!

I guess it's nothing to worry about anyway if we end up with just a handful of tickets in the pot.

Re: has anyone received the STEP participation Email?

I guess I wasn't clear. I meant to say: I'm assuming that the lucky 10,000 people that will be selected to buy camp tickets were also in the original lottery. Since they were in the lottery, I'd also assume they're in Step. Any ideas whether these lists have been cross checked? Is the list of 10,000...

Re: has anyone received the STEP participation Email?

Does anyone know how Step is interacting with the 10,000 tickets that will go to established camps? Have they decided who's getting the 10,000 and are they being pulled off the Step list?

Re: Who here actually has an extra ticket?

I really do think the "extra" tickets will start popping up in the summer when the reality of spending $100s on food and equipment and getting a week+ off work to travel to the desert and back sinks in and those that bought tickets "just in case" will start selling. Now, whether they sell through s...

Re: Burning Blog official ticket update

And now we all take a big deep breathe in, slowly exhale and wait. I find it interesting that they encourage more discussion of ideas. I have felt at various times attacked, shamed and at one point threatened on this board for not towing the party line and gave up on discussion. It will be interest...

Re: The stony silence of the BORG

Clearly BRC Llc has undermined the trust of the community with the decision to go to a lottery system, the make-it-up-as-we-go-along approach to purchase policy and public relations, and the "it'll be fine" message when it's obviously not. It is a psychological/emotional blow to camps and art colle...

AW LAWRDY! We're only done with 1/3rd of the ticket sale system, the lottery component, and now we're already making plans to flip-turn upside-down the whole system after we haven't even evaluated the entire plan? Were you also the types who expected Obama to fix the economy single-handed in a year...
