Re: VIP makes me sad for them.

We Camp by the airport road so we see all of the coming and going from the airport
It was a steady stream of empty art cars going to the airport to pick up their customers.

Re: Rate My Monkey Hut Plan!

Re: The VP mess

See eye that is not the problem here. I was under the impression that we are a community and as a community we take on the tasks together. But on this vp issue its not so. The presale allowed up to 6 tickets and 3 vp's per order a 2 to 1 ratio but plug and plays need that. Then they had the directed...

Re: The VP mess

My point is out of 3 sales of tickets the general sale is the only one that had a
3.3 tickets to 1vp ratio. Presale and directed group sale both got a 2 tickets to 1vp ratio.
Again I ask BM.org to address this bias

For the life of me I just do not understand why the BM.ORG does this to the general sale burners. It saddens me to see the grief this has caused not to mention its a gift to the scalpers.

Re: STEP - How fast I have to be?

Did anyone expect anything different on STEP. The general sale was compromised with hackers. You saw the counter move up after every refresh as the hacker pushed by you. Today you again saw the same thing one more time.
