This has probably been answered somewhere but I can't seem to find it. I was successful in getting 3 tickets in the pre-sale (registered in my name, charged to my card). But my party needs a total of 6. Am I personally barred from entering any of the remaining lotteries to try for the remaining tickets we need? We have to find someone else with a valid cc to enter?

@falcon451 - yes, you are only allowed to register once. Some of the other members of your party will need to register for either the main or secondary sale.

YES! So excited to get them. Maybe we can get married there after all...
Would be interesting to see anyone post who registered and did NOT get tix. Of course we may not know that until the 19th rolls around.
Anyone?

Well, I got my 2, so :mrgreen:

And if somebody only received 3 out of 4 requested, that means that there were applications for more than 3,000.

@toothfulwon - congrats! I think someone's already started a thread on that. Those who aren't awarded tickets will get an email after the drawing process is complete (because until it's complete they still have a shot), no later than the 19th.

If you're talking about the person I've seen, he only registered for three tickets. He asked us if he needs to register again because he could have registered for 4, and didn't. (The answer was "no, you can only register once".)

I believe you win the number you actually registered for (provided it's 4 or less in the holiday sale, or 2 in the future sales). Not a fraction of your order.

Well I made the mistake of setting this as a watched topic so every time someone posted a comment I got an e-mail notification. Opening my inbox like Charlie peeling back the wrapper of a Wonka bar only to find chocolate I would see an e-mail from eplaya and not Burningman.com. Well I "finally" got my golden ticket some 20 minutes later so at least my anxiety was short lived. I just found out that my bud got his ticket as well :D . But now it’s time to get down to business & start planning, building, & preparing. So much to do so little time. When all is said & done I would be curious to see how many people put in for these early tickets and didn’t get them(if any). Considering that last year didn’t sell out until late July I suspect that anyone that plans ahead & gets in to the next drawing will get their tickets. Good luck to anyone that is still waiting. I hope the later delivery of tickets puts a dent in the scalper market.

Yee hah, we're halfway there!
Trilobyte, I do have a question, am hoping you can help - the email that says I am awarded 1 ticket, although I requested 2. It didn't say anything about the 2nd - does it mean I still have a chance at another ticket in the pre-sale, does it mean that I am entered in the main sale for 1, or does it mean that somehow I screwed up when ordering and need to enter myself in the main sale for the 2nd ticket?
Thanks for your help, and congratulations to all who have their confirmations!

You are now the second person to report this same issue. I believe Trilo is already looking into it.

Well I want to tell you Grai that I did get lucky 8) I have confirmation on 4 tickets 8) so, scrape the cash together at your own pace dude I got you covered.

Does anybody know when we are going to get whatever it is we can print out to put under the xmas tree?

(((Trilo))) you were right, you told me so, I am sorry I doubted you.

@Sassy Britches - it meant you may have read the registration form as carefully as you read the confirmation email and not selected the number of tickets you wanted. No orders have been partially fulfilled, if the name was pulled you were awarded the number of tickets requested on your registration. Hence there being no mention of remaining tickets. But check your confirmation email. In particular, there's a section below the image that begins with "READ THIS INFORMATION" and provides info on what to do about questions and concerns regarding your online order. Read it, follow the link, and get in touch with Participant Services, hopefully they can get your situation resolved.

@MyDearFriend - congratulations!!! The thing you can print out is contained in the email - a picture of the playa with the caption "You're going to Burning Man 2012!" on it.

My husband called me at work this afternoon and gave me the best early Christmas present I could possibly imagine. We're going to Burning Man!

My heart has been doing a happy dance ever since. :D

Thanks Trilo - I'm usually much more attuned to the details than I apparently was for this... I did click the link for support and sent them a message, and am sure it will be resolved one way or another, and am fully confident that both my husband and I will be on the Playa this year! And, I also want to say thanks - your positive approach to all the requests and comments that come your way is really appreciated.

You're very welcome, and good luck Sassy Britches. Participant Services are some pretty awesome people, I'm hopeful that they'll be able to help get that resolved for you.

Congrats to everybody, and for those still waiting for news, the drawing process is not over. And hell yeah, BigDane, I'm looking forward to see the board go completely crazy with happy posts and people getting good news at the end of January (until my girlfriend surprised me with her post on the board this afternoon that was my plan).

It is the Cecelio-500(intermediate level), about $400 online, and I already had the second bow( although it does come with a hard case and a gig bag, and extra strings).
I am pretty stoked tonight!
