Next step 28 min
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.

I was sitting on the queue page and clicked the green button within 1 second of it showing up and somehow I have 59 minutes until the next step. Not terribly thrilled by this. Oh now the line is paused. I don't anticipate a very productive afternoon.

Remember, a place in the queue is not a guarantee of tickets. That's just an estimate of how long it will take you to go from your current place in the virtual queue to the ticket transaction engine. If the supply runs out before that time... yeah.

Fingers crossed for smooth sailing now that the early line pause issue's been resolved.

bingo. I'd vote for this guess.

And for our friends out there, how will they know of its a sellout? Will they proceed to the next step and find "0" tickets available?

Once tickets have sold out, it'll likely dump to a 'sorry there are no tickets available' page.

Just made it to 8 minutes, now back to more than an hour. Last year in and out in under 4 minutes. This could require drinking.

Alright well 50 minutes has passed, but it seems like (unless people are somehow getting into line infront of me) that the ticketing checkout engine is processing people quite slowly. Might be 2-3 hours till sellout. Mine still says more than an hour, despite being at 56 minutes nearly an hour ago.
