Re: Don't build your for profit business on Burning Man

MM makes $300k salary a year from that thing in the desert. Would you or wouldn't you say she personally profits off of the TTITD trademark? Why was this film allowed to shoot at the burn? Did these filmmakers profit off of TTITD? I assume so. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LFOt9ZXBfU Then there w...

Re: Don't build your for profit business on Burning Man

Why is BMorg allowed to profit off of TTITD but not Rangers?

Trump said, in a tweet not naming any platforms, that "Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservative voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen."
CLOSE IT DOWN!

Re: Keeping cool in a tent - tips?

The most important way to survive tent camping is to realize that you can literally dance and socialize and do activities ALL DAY. This is not regular America, where the night time is the right time, and having a cocktail before lunch is a scandal. Consider this: Shift your schedule! Go out in the ...

Re: Burning Man Dating Service

The idea of a burner dating app sounds kind of boring and monotonous. A much better idea is to download a regular dating app and put in an obscure TTITD reference that only the most crusty of burners will appreciate.

oh excuse me I'm sorry you shifted the model of managing Burning Man to a fucking for profit enterprise and now as a result of market forces you are going to lose money.

Thanks for playing capitalism. Better luck next time I guess.

Wow - Epiphany, my ticket expense and vehicle pass has nothing to do with funding the event. Instead it goes to funding whatever the BORG wants to spend it on. I feel somewhat misled and disheartened by that notion.

Re: Anticipating a $10 Million Shortfall Burning Man Asks Ticket Holders and Participants To Donate

Seems to me that the that the root of the problem is that the Org is spending the proceeds from one year on everything but the event for the next year. While I won't argue the merit of "all the great things" that they are doing I will say that not having a Plan "B" is pretty contrary to everything ...

Re: Anticipating a $10 Million Shortfall Burning Man Asks Ticket Holders and Participants To Donate

Given all the uncertainty surrounding COVID, and how long we will be unable to gather in large groupings absent a vaccine, I think it would be consummately unwise to sell tickets to any event in 2021 or the near future.

How much did Fly Ranch cost, again?
Wasn't that purchased by large donations?
So why can't it be sold for revenue?

Or, why can't those same corporate donors kick in to "save" the event, right now?

Re: The Future of Burning Man

After all the complaining for years about vehicle pass prices, ticket price increases, and VIP ticket offerings, it's hard for me to feel sympathy for BMORG and considering donating money to it. I mean, I know it's a great organization and event and does a lot of good and wonder in the world, but yo...
