Re: 2018 BRC Census deadline extended and some preliminary results

But the big news is the decline in percentage for 2 years of virgins. Future virgins, don't be butthurt. Get involved in your regional in person to connect to the secondary market. We want virgins who return year over year, are involved with their regional, and bring art! I suppose it depends on wh...

Re: Greeter Bypass For Early Entry

I’m Raven and I help build out a long time participating theme camp on the Playa. Please, you must add a “greeter bypass lane” just for the early entry period. There are waaaay too many Burner Virgins coming in now with early-entry and causing hours of delays at the greeters. Year after year now, m...

Re: New and Improved 2017 Black Rock City Census

We all form mental models of the event as we participate. Supplementing with the Census data improves that model. Yes! The theme of the center camp cafe speaker series this year was "break your frame" - all about how people can examine critically the ways they understand, evaluate, and interact wit...

Re: New and Improved 2017 Black Rock City Census

Vehicle Gate count during the event? There'll definitely be information about the number of people who arrive and leave each day in the final population report, but Popeye's right - Census only counts vehicles for the purposes of random selection during our shifts. If there is an event-duration cou...

Re: New and Improved 2017 Black Rock City Census

The Census team and brass really need to split up the event relevant part from the various science projects. It’s kind of lame to bundle them together. ...they are split? Sections 1 and 2 are the methodology and event relevant sections, and section 3 is the outside researchers' questions. (That's w...

Re: New and Improved 2017 Black Rock City Census

Hi all! Someone asked a great question over messaging, and I thought I would reply here since I'm sure others have been wondering the same thing. "Why's the survey so long?" While we have done a little bit of culling this year to make the survey shorter than previous years', we understand it is stil...

New and Improved 2017 Black Rock City Census

Hey everyone! Your 2017 Black Rock City Census is live ! It is likely to be open until around mid-October, but why not fill it out now, before you forget? Each year, there are a couple of community concerns that pop up around the Census. We made a point to address a few of these this year. We hope y...

Re: People Seeking Camps 2017

My partner is 40M and IRL a college professor, and he's hoping to get involved with the Census and maybe give a couple lectures at Center Camp in future years. He's more experienced; he's been to the Burn four times, I believe. Hey, ediblesprysky! Census would be totally stoked to get some new bloo...

Re: Off chance somebody is watching the Michigan v Florida game, on Sept 2

I'm wondering if there is anybody who is a big NCAA football fan, who also happens to somehow have access to a satellite TV, who ALSO happens to be planning on watching the Michigan v Florida game on the afternoon of Sept 2nd? Ridiculous long shot I realize, but I'm a pretty big Michigan fan, so th...

Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

Straight fact - you can earn a staff-priced credential or full staff access, and a vehicle pass, by working for a number of org departments. The shift requirements vary. In rare cases, If you are connected to the org, you might score a last-minute ticket in order to work. You absolutely do not need...

Re: The 2016 BRC Census Survey is Now Online!

Just a bump, since the survey is only open for a few more days (closes October 15th). Reminder that the survey is voluntary and confidential, and you are allowed to skip any questions you like - as long as you make it to the end and hit "submit," the answers you did choose to give will be recorded. ...

Re: volunteering with GPE

Only at gate actual this year, since I didn't have too many shifts (I work for another department as well, and I was on-boarded super late - my fault). Next year I'll sign up sooner and explore some other options. Could be fun to do airport or staging, I think. What are the most sought-after spots? ...

Also got in a little training/shift goodness with Exit Lane on Friday morning, and that was also a great tim...

...How much do the braids damage your hair when you take them out? Thanks! In my experience (have braided or locked for three burns as well as off-playa now and again), it's not the braids that do damage - it's my own impatience when taking them down. The playa gets in and can plaster your ends to ...

You and all our volunteers this year really hit it out of the park. This was my third year as a Census volunteer, but my first as a sampling shift...
