Re: Official "Awarded Tickets" Thread

I am so depressed. BM is my annual panacea. It's my Christmas and New Year and some random selection has excluded me this year. I don't know how I am going to join my Camp Mates. I fly 7,000 miles to attend with so much glee. I am so sad this year. Dear Burning Tourist, Do you know what time it is?...

Re: What *Would* You Gift A Ticket For?

The point is a moot one. To gift a ticket in expectation of some tangible return or expectation of a reward of reciprocation taints the whole idea - as I understand it. Doing it in such a way taints the giving - or the releasing of it - in such a way as to attach a... shadow to it. If you're gonna d...

Re: Hypothetical question...

(3) the tickets go to a theme camp that needs crew members to bring fire art to the playa Which brings up the other six-hundred pound gorilla in the room. Not all members of a theme camp necessarily contribute 'more' than anyone else rolling through the gate by virtue of their membership status. SO...

Re: Burning Man 2012 Tickets FAQ

Turning a bunch of newbs loose out there without experienced role-models and builders, though, that's just stupid.

There is a balance to be struck, and it's too important to leave to chance. Or so I think.
Did you stop to think just how fucking patronizing this comes across as?

Re: Removing Radical Inclusion

If it's understood as "anyone is welcome" instead of "everyone is guaranteed to be able to attend" it can still exist fine. A salient and important point.

Re: How about giving theme camps a certificate for tickets?

I hesitate to be elitist in any way, but if a camp can't get it's members there, it will cease being a camp... This could still be done for this year in a haphazard way, where camps get some preferable treatment to get their core members tickets. Just a thought and trying to help out! Not a bad ide...

It goes without saying that the current system is broken. LOTS of teeth gnashing and renting of the cloth. All the have nots doing their best interpretation of the Dance of the Seven Veils.
