Yippeeee for gzbrambila, VK, Spadge63!! Cmmmooooooon tickets for Moonbabyy, Grokstar, FoC, nemo, Arnoldo.

On a side note, since we got tickets my husband has become a planning, building madman. It has sparked his inner 'I must do man stuff' spirit. Shade structures, water storage, tents, oh my! He has been mad impressed with how much cool info he has gotten off the eplay preparation threads. He made his tent decision (Kodiak) based on eplaya info (and other research) and on the shade structure. He reads about making structures hold up in high winds and dust storms, while I plan how many pairs of fishnet stockings I will need, and read the threads about how my boobs will fare on the playa and how I can wash my hair and leave no trace. A match made in heaven. Thanks to all who post all that information, it really helps!

One of my campmates just purchased two tickets through STEP. Her original confirmation email timestamp is 12:16:23. By the way, her email offering the STEP purchase came Monday afternoon. (It took her a while to perform the purchase.)

She now only needs one of the tickets, so she is putting one back into STEP! Unfortunately, this process is slow as there appears to be no automated way to do it. Apparently people who purchased a ticket in the original sale were sent an email with a link to resell those tickets in STEP, but people who purchased their tickets via STEP did not get that email. Per the STEP FAQ, she had to email Online Support to get a link to resell one ticket back into STEP. She is now waiting to hear back from Online Support.

So the good news is that there's another ticket going back into STEP soon, but the bad news is that it's not immediately.

It's not that they don't mean anything, just that they are only accurate to within +/- 5 minutes, and not necessarily in sequential order.

I love when Felix brings up the "almighty timestamp". It's probably become my favorite thing on this thread. Except of course when people find out they're gettin' dusty.

GOT IT! Timestamp: 12:16:32 PM PST Of course it was $390. I'm curious if anyone's gotten a STEP ticket for any of the lesser amounts...

Notice my :wink: , and my timestamp time in small type at the bottom ?


Sheesh. :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :P





Actually, I have been under the impression that some of the variation in timestamp returns here has been that there are, in a sense, two lists. The people that requested one ticket, and the people that requested two, as pairs of tickets that are turned into STEP arent being split into two singles to satisfy single ticket orders. You could add this to whatever server time variations there are.

From what people are reporting here +/- 5 minutes seems extreme, but :30 to a minute difference with those factors taken into account is realistic.

Indeed, we have seen STEP tickets reported at all prices.

From what I understand, the list is being gone through in chronological order. If one ticket comes up when there's a two ticket order, it sits, along with any other one ticket availables until a two ticket available fulfills that two ticket order. Then the single tickets are sold to the next single ticket requests, until they run out or there's another 2 ticket order in the queue.

Right?? I'm counting on her next year to be here giving swift kicks to the asses of the naysayers that don't prepare due to dismal hopes.

No matter WHAT happens from here on out, always always always plan as if you're playa bound that year. Always. Manifest that shit. Stay vigilant. Never give up. Find a way. There's always one if not five.

Received my STEP email today. Clicked the link and didn't have my bank card around. The window closed and now I can not get the link to work again to purchase the tickets. I just emailed support. Is there anything else i can do? After waiting this long it's a bit of a bummer. 72 hours just started ticking. Any help would be wonderful. It's been a horrible day. Thanks in a advance.
