Re: It "could" be true?

Eric, yeah, I hadn't thought of the "tipping point" and that our popularity has likely accelerated well past the curve of historical growth. And so, change happens. Which is great by me. Red Heaven, yeah, on second thought I agree that it is easier to get people to attend . . . if nothing else the p...

Re: It "could" be true?

I definitely believe that the issue with tickets has been a lot of speculative buying based on the hype of the sell out last year. I would bet that a lot of people who haven't been before registered just in case they want to go, knowing they can always resell the tickets later. The question remains ...

Re: Now that the lottery failed ... here is a suggestion

Yeah Simon, best statement I've seen on the forums. Ever. There was a band a while back that played at the event called Lost at Last. Had no idea what that name meant for a long time. Was wondering around in a complete white out one year, realized I was totally and completely lost. And loving every ...

Re: My Predictions and Radical Solution

Here's an idea for those who know early they are fairly certain they'll attend. Have a sale in January which is either a lottery or open sale but lasts for just a day or 2. Sell maybe 20-30K tickets, 1 per person, 1 price. Those tickets are somehow linked to the person who bought them, either throug...

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

It is indeed an interesting question. On one hand, the org as far as I know has never officially supported any size or type of camp, that is up to the participants to figure out. On the other hand it seems that many of the large scale camps provide a large part of the attraction to the event. And no...

Re: The non-repeat, non-negative lottery feedback thread.

I would suggest not mailing tickets until early August and keep all ticket sales within a STEP program of some sort. As much as we all like to have our tickets in hand early I don't think there's an absolute need. I believe this would reduce most chances of scalping or counterfeiting while still all...

Re: well it looks like it failed.

" 2. the tickets will have to be picked up at will call by the new owners of the tickets, that way it will be more difficult for scalpers to sell them on the open market." Since physical tickets don't get sent until June, nobody really "owns" a ticket until then, they have paid for something to be d...

Re: well it looks like it failed.

I saw him walking out of Jiffy Lube without using one of the bmorg required hand sanitizers. On another occasion he was seen dressed in feathers at one of the large scale sound art installations (insert your favorite of Root, OT, etc). And he was dancing . . . thought something froze over somewhere ...

No matter where or when I'll definitely attend that, sounds like great fun ! I mean, a cluster of fucks. Or the biggest that Burningman has ever achieved . . . well, that is hard to imagine, actually. But I like the challenge.

Re: well it looks like it failed.

Actually June is when physical tickets get mailed, from what I can tell the STEP program is going to be implemented shortly after the lottery results are announced. I'd hope that means ticket exchanging very soon. It would seem as simple as someone has too many tickets, they offer to sell whatever n...

Re: well it looks like it failed.

Yeah, forgot to mention I believe that in general there will be enough tickets to go around, I think the lottery is no worse and may be somewhat better than the previous systems, my main concern is that we will have a chance to know sooner rather than later if we have tickets, June is a bit late . ....

Re: well it looks like it failed.

"Any news on how they plan to keep scalpers out of this system? Seems like a great 1-stop-shop to buy low and sell high." I would suggest keeping the STEP program "private" for a period of time to only those who registered for the lottery and did not win. That would allow for equitable redistributio...

The only camp I know of getting ejected was the Capitalist Pigs in 1999. From what I remember (camped 1 block away) they were non-stop (24/7) insulting people walking by with megaphone rants. Which isn't always such a bad thing, but wouldn't stop when repeatedly asked by rangers, the line was crosse...
