Yeah, sorry for the scare rubymermaid (although . . . I didn't do it :lol: ). Congratulations on your ticketquest!

An authorization charge of $1.01 (refunded in 3-5 days) is common to many online merchants to make sure a card works. We discussed it here on ePlaya, but it would have been a really nice addition to "fees" in the FAQ.

I thought it might be that. It's really easy to accidentally choose all tiers, but I didn't want to assume. :D

(It is indeed a happy accident. Tell her it actually increased her odds of getting tickets, being in all tiers!)
And hurt my odds
Actually, it didn't. Turns out when you register for $390 you get registered for all tiers. It's not like we were hoarding. We registered for one ticket at $390. Not hoarding or ruining your chances.

This is true--if you're willing to pay $390, so someone else has the possibility of paying less, you don't have a choice as to what tier you actually get. If anyone wants to discuss that, please use one of the many pre-established ticket threads that are philosophical, thoughtful or negative. This thread is for joy and nervousness.

Let's keep it light in our one happy ticket thread, now!

We've been brilliant so far! Thanks all. :D

I think I'm having heart palpitations....feel like i drank WAY too much coffee, and I haven't.

Breathe, breathe, breathe.

At least I'm getting a lot of file shredding done in my state of anxious awaiting..

I have the same question as above. Will there be a notification once the lottery is done? Happy to stay up all night if necessary. X

There will be a notice on the main site and here, when the drawing is done. Expect the drawing to probably continue through tomorrow, 2/1/12.

There will be emails sent to all registrants saying "Yes, you have tickets" or "No, here's more info about the March drawing and other opportunities."

I really hope they get to tier 2 soon - My card expires tonight because I'm a dunderhead and didn't know I was going until 2 days before registration closed. My own fault, and I know there's chances to get tickets later, but really hoping luck runs in my favor tonight! I WILL MAKE IT TO THE PLAYA SOMEHOW!

Thanks for being a consistent voice of reason and positivity throughout this nerve-wracking process Savannah. I only hope that the karma gods return all of your good vibes in the form of a lovely, crisp Burning Man 2012 ticket!

My bank account shows a charge of $1.01, but not for tickets yet. Anyone else?

Maybe this means that I got drawn for a lower tier that hasn't been charged yet.

You got chosen. That's a test charge, to make sure that your card exists and they have all the info they need to make it run through. You will get that back in a few days.
