What's the QR Code for?

Post by Dr. Brap » Fri Aug 07, 2015 10:18 am

Anyone know what the QR code is for? All it does is display the ticket's serial number. If a ticket has been voided would that show up when you scan it?

No, unless someone wrote a app specifically for BM tickets that checked the voided ticket list, then no, a normal QR scanner app wouldn't know that it's a burning man ticket and wouldn't check the voided ticket list.

That said, gate will probably scan the code, and they obviously would check if the ticket is still valid or not.

Fixed, and this is correct. If a ticket has been voided, Gate will know and the entire vehicle will be refused entry, even if every other ticket is valid. No one is allowed to just dump someone at Gate, they need to take the person with the invalid back to Reno first.
