Who got tickets in the Directed Group Sale?

Post by trilobyte » Wed Feb 04, 2015 8:19 am

Rather than a bunch of different threads for excited people to post about having secured tickets to Burning Man, we'll contain it all in this thread which will be unlocked at noon PST.

The Directed Group Sale is not open to the public. As per the info posted on the ticketing page, based on past history Burning Man targets specific collaborative groups within the community for participation in the Directed Group Sale. These groups are given the opportunity to invite their core members to participate for a chance to get tickets in this pre-sale. That not only helps those groups, but it also alleviates some of the demand for tickets in the main sale.

For those who are participating in this sale and posting to share the excitement about your success, maybe say a word or two about the camp or project that you're involved with.

For those who are not participating in the Directed Group Sale, let's be happy for those who got through! Cheer them on, encourage them to do bigger and better things on the playa and just be happy for a fellow burner. Also, it's one less person who will be crushing the servers at noon PST on February 18th (when the bulk of tickets go on sale).

I'm in line. 6 minutes until I move to the "next step" whatever that means.

Next step is where you get to enter all your stuff into the transaction engine. It certainly is a nicer looking waiting room page this year... Fingers crossed!

Well that went well. I was in at 12:01 and got my full package. Four others from my camp are ticketed. Art Car Camp is ALIVE!

Pro tip for participants... you don't need to go to your burner profile page at all - click the link in the email you received on 2/2.

Crochet Camp will be there in Barbie Death Village with a crochet monkey hut, crochet cougar, and some miscellaneous yarn bombing. And whatever else comes off my hook between now and then.

I am trying this by remote control, over the phone to my son Archie, since my browser here at work is too ancient to display the ticketfly payment page. :|

Archie is currently eating chips and watching the numbers change. :?

That was so easy. Me and mine got ours, no sweat. Completely forgot to discuss will call versus shipping though. Oh well, that can be change in the next month or so.

Monkey, don't stress. Mine said 3 min then 8 min and then suddenly it was my turn. Keep an eye on it, you'll get a popup to click and then it will take a while to redirect. Like, long enough to make me panic that it wasn't redirecting.

Use the link in the email! It bypasses the Borg's servers completely.

I'm just kidding.

Trilobyte, the challenge is always getting people to BRING their beautiful daily drivers. Many of them simply can't make it that far or can't hold up to the elements of the Black Rock Desert.

ACK, we just lost four ticket options because two of our campers only have AmEx. :-(

We're trying to get them to switch to PayPal...don't want to lose those options.

Well, that wasn't so bad. About 10 minutes, overall. Two key points: (1) use the email link and bypass the Burner Profile, and (2) don't panic. :mrgreen:
