I see a $1.01 authorization on my bank account, but no email or charge yet... Has anyone else who got an authorization earlier ended up getting confirmation that they won tickets?

Yes, the $1.01 authorization is usually a good sign. It's a test to see that the credit card works and is typically refunded in 3-5 days. Best of luck!

That's the test charge, to make sure that the card's real or whatever. the larger charge should come shortly. I don't know where the email comes...

Oo. Now I want a cocktail onion. Just by itself.

This could go on for some time, Fred. Through tomorrow is expected. You will get an email one way or the other.

Maybe they're just planning it that way so that there won't be some-odd thousands of spam messages littering the forum after the week is over. "You're such a good employee that we took the liberty of reducing your vacation so you can keep up the good work!"

Just joking of course.

Do any of the mods know if the lottery will continue drawing and sending confirmations continuously all night and inot tomorrow if need be? I am just wondering if I should check my email when I get up to pee in the middle of the night - if I can sleep at all!! Also does anyone know if there would be an email notifying if there was a snafu with your credit card? I know there will be one if you are simply not drawn......any info would be appreciated! This is some seriously long drawn out anxiety!!! Congrats to all who have won - still hoping and checking hoping and checking here in the Pacific Northwest!

Haha! Thanks! I just did it two days ago, I've been wanting to do this for a while now. My hair stylist wouldn't let me see it until it was done and I was SOOOOOO excited. I almost cried - Silly as it may seem, having rainbow hair has been a life-long goal. LOL
lol, I was going to say something but I didn't know if it was your actual picture. I absolutely LOVE your hair! if I knew how to post pictures I'd post one of my older hair. It was pretty much the same as it is now (the pink on bottom and black on top) but with a bunch of different colored extensions mixed in...I'm a sucker for crazy ass hair! :D
Me too! I love crazy hair like a burner loves the playa!

DAW! Thanks! Also - That is the cutest damn cat ever.

Still no e-mail for me. Even made sure to take a long smoke and chat with a neighbor to stay away from the apartment, the phone, and the computer. :(

What does it mean if I have a pending charge on my credit card from Burning Man for only $1.01? Is that a good thing or a bad thing. So anxious!!!

I would just "take to my bed" like a Victorian and play the invalid for a week. No, 12 days. My convalescence would involve imaginary travel time and early entry (to my bed).

It's a good thing. It's a pre-authorization charge to make sure the card works; should be refunded in 3-5 days.
