Re: A Lesson In Communication of Essential Information

It is definitely a lesson in how NOT to roll out a project or initiative. I've been in environments where projects were rolled out that really had no thought or answers behind them, other than the philosophy "That's what we're going to do, deal with it" . Rather than have preemptive and proactive an...

Re: Clumsy ‘solution’ to non existent problem?

Well, they consolidated some brackets:

- $240: 10,000 tickets
- $320: 15,000 tickets
- $390: 15,000 tickets
- $390: 10,000 tickets


But why not consolidate them down to
- $300: 25,000 tickets
- $375: 25,000 tickets

Re: Clumsy ‘solution’ to non existent problem?

The 'return your tickets the ORG' system punishes more people than scalpers it deters. If I buy two tickets and plan to gift the second one as a surprise to a friend in July how do I get their name on the ticket? If our camp sits on an extra ticket in case we get a veteran camp member who finally go...

Clumsy ‘solution’ to non existent problem?

This lottery system is supposedly in response to two core issues: 1) Opening day ticket sale rush crashed the servers: opening day has always been a mad house; it should have been no surprise. If the servers (of the paid ticketing agency) could not handle the rush, one solution would be… wait for it...

Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

I don’t see how this lottery reduces scalping opportunities. It is still a matter of using banks of computers to jam up the ticket server. I don’t see how delaying ticket confirmations until ‘early summer’ will benefit the community… it seems that work on camps or projects would not take off until t...

Re: Party mess on deep playa, art?

So when 'corporate infused' camps and events occur at BM, particularly non-sanctioned by the BMORG, should BMORG take a stronger stand against them? Or is it up to we the BRC people to just ignore these 'camps' and their sponsors?

We have a Faceboook page, search for us. 6 weeks to go, and we still are open to the idea of new campers joining us. Come mid August, we'll be locked down with final camp preparations and probably won't be able or willing to get back to people.

I also use the solar stake lights (the kind you put in a garden) to highlight stakes, poles, wires, etc. They have fallen in price to a $1 each for the cheapo ones on sale and they do a decent job.
