A handfull on Reddit posted yesterday they received offers. All had STEP email time stamps of 12:00:xx. Less the a minute after STEP buyer registration opened. I'm guessing if your time stamp was past 12:05:00 your chances are slim......er..... :?

Mine was 12:15:xx
2nd time better than the first. And the first was pretty Freakin' Great!

Hey just checking - has anybody recently gotten a STEP email? I think that they have gotten through the 12:00:20-25 ish range but I'm not sure how close I am to getting a ticket. If anybody has gotten one, could you please post the time of your verification email? It should be in the 12:00:20s or the very low 12:00:30s. Thanks!

It looks as if it's stuck in 12:00:22, all the people that have got their STEP email since they where sent have that timestamp. It is starting to feel pretty fucked up for me (12:01:16)...

Yeah I'm still in the 12:00:00s and I am getting nervous. I pressed reload on the day of the STEP sign up at like 11:59:54 because I figured it would take about 6 seconds to load the page with all the lag. I then got on at 12:00:01, pressed "Validate" and then it hung for like 30 something seconds. I think what happened is a huge glut of people all got 12:00:22, then another glut of people got at 12:00:28, then another at 12:00:40. So hopefully by late June we'll have some tickets!

I got the email at 12:00:27 and still no update. So unfortunately it seems like there wasn't much progress in the past 2 weeks.

So interesting series of links here:

1.) http://journal.burningman.org/2014/07/b ... -man-2014/
This is a 2014 breakdown of the STEP program after it closed, where the Burning Man Org. said that "over 2,500" tickets were sold through STEP that year and little else.

That lead to:

2.)
This 2014 Reddit thread where someone said that if you actually drill into the Census data for that, they sold 2,573 tickets - HOWEVER - 2,500 of them were released by the BMO themselves and are not actually being resold. So only 73 tickets were actually resold.

3.)
This is a 2012 Reddit thread where some guy tracked posts here on ePlaya and on Reddit and was able to get the cohorts for different times of ticket sales. He found that there were only about 71 people who registered within the first minute, although I am guessing today in 2016 that there are probably 3 or 4 times that.

However, looking at the trickle of tickets around the internet, it seems like maybe the Org isn't releasing new tickets at the rate that they were before? A lot of older posts are telling people to "wait for July" a lot - which makes me think that they do a dump at some point? However, post 3 makes it look like they dole them out as they go. Here's hoping.

Just got my email too (registered at 12:00:27). One question though - why is Will Call the only delivery option on the checkout page?

According to http://tickets.burningman.org/secure-ti ... ge-program "Ticket orders purchased in STEP may opt to have their orders shipped."

Regarding your question sharke, I asked that through the ticket support system and the answer was the following: "As of May 25, Will Call is the only delivery option for tickets."

We are officially in the realm of 12:01:01 ladies & gentlemen!!! WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!! 8)

With people scoring regular priced tickets through STEP and other means, who needs those Presales and DaVincis....
