Re: Still haven't gotten your tickets?

I took the advice posted here and called Ticketfly after not receiving a response to the email I sent 2.5 days ago. My last name starts with an S, and the girl on the phone told me that they are just starting to fulfill orders for people whose names start with that letter, so all Smiths, Strattons, ...

Re: Still haven't gotten your tickets?

If I were actually able to make it to the burn, I'd probably be less concerned about having not received my tickets or an email yet. I'm sure everyone will get their tickets, but I have to get mine and then sell them, and the longer that takes the more difficult I think it will be. I learned I wasn...

Re: Official starting and ending times?

Last year, we got there at about sometime around 830 AM on Monday morning, and pretty much cruised right in. There was not a line at all, really. We were shocked. I'll be doubly shocked if it happens that way again, but here's hoping...

Re: The Individual Sale has started!

Success. I originally entered the queue at 12:00:28, got booted three times. Re-entered for the fourth time around 12:45, waited without problem for ~40 minutes, and finally made it to the page to purchase tickets, where I experienced no issues at all. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

Re: The Individual Sale has started!

I've been booted three times now. I don't want to get that "you've reached your limit" message. Should I wait until there's less traffic? If I do "reach my limit" for number of attempts, is that something that's easily correctable if I contact support?

It just crashed for me, too, after waiting 18 minutes.

Re: Pre-Register For The Individual Ticket Sale

A friend accidentally registered with a first name that doesn't match the one on her credit card. If she does a second registration with the correct name, and the same email address, is that going to be a problem? Will the second attempt go through?

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

Again, it's not about not offending people by not using derogatory terms. It's about the continued, present-day consequences that perpetuating colonialist attitudes have on the lives of Indigenous peoples. Not someone getting mad because you insulted the color of their skin, but about someone's worl...

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

So many naysayers who only registered to complain about the theme. No one will take you seriously here if your only contribution to this community is negative. An argument could be made for trollism. Stop trying to rustle up some Cargo Guilt. I actually registered early this year to complain about ...

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

I hope everyone debating the theme has read what the main site has to say about it. It seems to be saying something about the tendency of all humans to look Beyond for salvation, when there is an alternative. Yeah, and that's probably true, but saying that we're all part of a giant cargo cult doesn...

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

A bunch of people in my camp have already told me they feel uncomfortable, including ones with south pacific/island heritage. Do you want to be the one that tells them that it's fine? That they shouldn't feel offended? Burning Man already has a "comfortable place for white people problem". This is ...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

I purchased my tickets in the first wave of $420 sales back in December. I haven't received a notification email yet. Should it be soon? Or should it have already been? Thanks.
