I wanted to come back to the Playa this time after last year's amazing experience. But I missed out registering to STEP early on. I just registered yesterday. Is it too late ? :( :( :(

Unknown. This is only STEP's third year, and the first was different in various ways.
Work your family and friends. Tickets will be mailed this month? July? and things will start moving outside the step que. Take precautions and try and buy from people you know. (Some of the mods--green names--have helpful links about fraud in their signature lines.)

STEP is one tool in the suite of actions you go through to get your ticket.

We put one ticket into STEP yesterday. On Ticketfly it said our remaining physical tickets would ship around June 30th. That means STEP still has access to most of the pool of physical and will-call tickets. Possible ticket sources will be fewer soon, but a bunch will probably flood into STEP in August as people find out they can't go.

I feel a certain embarassment at having written this. It's so... corporate-speak...

STEP closes on July 25th at 12 noon (PDT). There will be no STEP for tickets to flood into in August, though there will hopefully be third-party tickets around then.

Thanks Trilo -- I appreciated everything... You are definitely a good site admin. That said, utilizing this board (mostly for STEP) has made it a home for me... so looks like I'm stuck here to stay.

Thanks for the kind words... now you can breathe a little easier and use the rest of the board a bit more as you plan your prep and connect with other folks embarking on a similar adventure :)

Hey, can people who get STEP tickets also share when they entered the queue? I missed the notification and got in about 24 hours after the buyers queue opened. Knowing when people got in would give us a sense of how far into it the system is.

Thanks!

I did, and aside from some info on how fast the queue might move, I did not see any tracking.

I'm pretty sure this is what BBadger is talking about

There is NO time/date stamp for STEP. Period. People who mention it are mouthing words that have no meaning. They did not get a confirmation email as none were sent, there is no way to find out where in the line you stand (other than whatever vague idea you have of when you registered). The only way to know you're even in STEP is that it says so on your Burner Profile. We don't even know how many people are waiting in total - it's not information the BMorg releases.

As Trilo says - STEP is the long game of weeks and months, it is not a quick or guaranteed way to a ticket. Continue to use all other resources to find a ticket (Burner friends, regional lists, etc).
That said I'm pretty sure we're still getting through the VERY first people who signed up.
