Well, no. It's one less ticket, pretty much anyone deserves it over having it burned. That is waste by any definition.

Re: Ethical tickets: what is a fair markup for re-sale ticke

Is that an actual Economic Behavioral theory, or did you just make that up? (Not trolling, actually wondering) No, it wouldn't be exactly 2.5x because quite a few people would be priced out of the market, so I did sort of pull it out of my ass. Plus, with what we know (jack shit apparently, and les...

Transparency is our friend. If demand was really 2.5x the amount of tickets available aftermarket prices would be 2.5x face, which they are not.

Re: Ethical tickets: what is a fair markup for re-sale ticke

Anything over $500 is a hard pill to swallow. I can see going up to $500: people paid out $250-440 (depending on tier) for tickets six months ago. That isn't an insignificant amount for a lot of people, the opportunity cost there is high. Maybe reimbursing them for their opportunity cost isn't what ...

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

I agree with you, Eric. When I saw Trilo's post yesterday, that pretty much sealed it for me. Considering that I'm at 12:21, it is doubtful that STEP will ever get to me. So I guess it is now time for plans E, F and G (plan A = lottery, B = STEP, C = network local burners/attend local burner events...

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

The STEP queue likely had some number greater than 2000 registrants, as the email sent out back on February 29 stated they had twenty different servers accepting registrations. Plus remember, by very popular request the limit was two tickets per registrant. 1000 tickets were all submitted into STEP...

Fucking slavery just came up, what a joke! How long till Godwin's law makes an appearance? Tickets are revocable, thus there is no right of attendance, end of story.

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

Definitely a complicated issue, but going back to the lottery it seems slightly more clear. We were supposed to register for tickets only for ourselves and one other person; it seems all the people who didn't act accordingly have caused a lot of the ticket scarcity issues we currently face.

I'll stand by what I said. STEP is for people without tickets, if someone got tickets elsewhere and still accepted a STEP ticket that'd be double dipping on an individual level.
