Why not try this?

Post by jcoffy » Fri Feb 10, 2012 8:31 am

You wanna cut out scalpers. It may not be 100% possible. But why would we not be printing names on tickets? It seems like if I want a ticket for me and my mom....or whoever. i know that mostly at the time of my purchase. If I want to transfer my mom's ticket I would pay a service fee to transfer it to someone else in my camp....and mom can rest easy at home. OR i would then have the option to sell my ticket back to BMORG at NO COST. So they could sell it to someone else. This would keep the scalping to a minimum and would create money (transfer fees) to pay the gate folks and create a technology for check in. Heck we could do it with bar codes instead of actual tickets!!!!! E-Tickets.

What are the problems with this idea? Come on all you armchair event organizers....let's dance.

oh! i have an even better idea. lets make the tickets just like really fucking huge. i mean like you need an entire pickup truck to just carry the ticket. this isn't your mother's movie ticket, no sir, this is like fucking 600# of cardboard.

this would be great, because newbs don't have cars big enough to carry so much extra stuff. my camp rents an entire 24-foot flatbed anyway for our structural steel we bring, plus the art cars. so we'll have plenty of space for all of our tickets, and most experienced theme camps will be in the same place. so... we'd be keeping the burgins out, but we won't be SAYING we're keeping them out, cuz i mean come on they can just get a ticket like everyone else, right? BUT THEY CAN'T!

then on burn night we can all throw our tickets on the man pyre and melt the playa.

this will also keep the scalpers away, because they won't have room to store their thousands of really massive scalped tickets.

Wow thanks for your snarky un-constructive bullplop. Not a valid point in the whole post.

Igor, Love it!! How about making them out of some medium that's hard to scalp. Like Ice Cream.

Jcoffy, I'm sorry but after reading 1,000 posts that say the same thing....It's just plain weird that you start another one.

Was this all a ploy to get free lashings?

Hey, your heart's in the right place. People get snarky here, and yes, that subject's been bandied about ad nauseum. But keep at it. No lashings here. Good luck.

Next year's tickets will be made of the actual scalps of all the people who scalped tickets this year.

Lets pick 10,000 people at random....through application. Then we make them do like American Gladiators (playa style).....I.E. trash fence hurdles, climb the man, dodge art cars with no lights, escape the portas, slap-a-raver obstacle course, and lick stripper poles. The winners in each categories will then become team captains. Picking and choosing all participants. Those who didn't get to be team captains....9,988 will get to sit in judgement over the proceedings. Can you guys think of any other events to prove your worthiness?




Ice cream tickets.....mmmmm....a.aaaaaaggggggg!
