Heavens forbid if you had to carpool to get in.

All -

Just finished my payment for just two tickets and no pass.

I connected at 12:00:01 and waited without using my PC for other things.

I had a 3-5m wait when the page said "You made it; we are transferring you to TF"........

If this ticket doesn't happen for you...check out the regional burns!

Good luck to everyone, and a hug to each an every burner in 2015!! (whether or not you actually walk through the gate!)

I'm hearing from people everywhere that if you opened a new window from your email after you were already in queue, that new email got through faster. Why is that the case?

Excellent point, LonesomeBri. The whole point of reducing the number of passes was to curb the amount of hoarding people were doing (more than 5K more passes were purchased than used).

Don't stress over the pass now, but do stay tuned and pay attention to where you can get that sorted out in the months ahead.

I never follow the advice, and have always gotten a ticket quickly... this year, follow the advice, still in line with 47 minutes and I am hearing it sold out...

Yeah :(.

I got in line within the first 5 seconds, and it was sold out by the time I got through. Bummed.

I wouldn't worry too much about vehicle passes at this point. Just worry about getting through and getting tickets now, vehicle passes can be sorted later. People realize they didn't need as many as they thought and plenty turn up in the after-market, and it's also possible that Burning Man will revisit the number they make available this year.
Yup, not too worried about it.

Stop looking for a quiet place. Find it within yourself and carry it wherever you go.

THIS SUCKS
If burning man really what’s to fix itself just put a name on the ticket of the buyer, and checked at the gate, so no scalping on tickets, if you can’t make it return to ticketfly for full refund, then the ticket is resold at face value.

Sounds like if you didn't click the link within the first 2 seconds after NOON, you don't get tickets, what a bunch of crap!

Damn, that's what usually do, and did last year and it worked.

This year I followed the advice to the letter and no ticket.

Mental note, 'never do what you're told'.

yep, that's what worked for me early on. i got in immediately at noon - no line. but when i was transferred to ticketfly, the site was down. i fretted for a few minutes, tried the support line, and while on hold, clicked on the link in my email and BOOM - right back to my cart ready to check out! strange but in that good way. feeling lucky today!
