!!Read ME!! Ticket Sellers & Seekers!

Post by trilobyte » Thu Mar 29, 2018 10:08 am

Please read through the following information before posting in the Tickets Offered or Tickets Wanted boards.

You may list Burning Man tickets and vehicle passes for sale on ePlaya at a fixed price (no auctions or 'best offer' listings, and no conditional sales), no higher than face value of the tickets/passes plus taxes, fees, and shipping costs.

Ticket raffles and contests are not allowed on this site, and are a violation of the Burning Man terms & conditions without prior written authorization from Burning Man.

To list your tickets and/or passes, create a new thread in the 2018 Tickets/Passes Offered message board and make sure to include the # of tickets/passes and selling price in your subject line. If you are selling tickets and vehicle passes, use only a single thread. Be prepared for a significant response to your listing. Alternatively, you can choose to browse through the threads in the 2018 Tickets/Passes Wanted message board to find an individual you would like to sell your tickets to, and then contact that person directly via private message or email to make arrangements.

If you've posted a ticket listing thread, let us know as soon as you've found a buyer. Either reply in your thread or send a message to one of the moderators (please include a link to your thread). We'll change the subject to SOLD and get the thread locked up for you (which should stop the flood of responses). Once you've sold your tickets, use the self-service Ticket Transfer Tool to assign a ticket or vehicle pass to the buyer. Once completed, the recipient will receive an email confirming the transfer. Instructions and additional information about the Ticket Transfer Tool can be found here.

Ticket buyers are welcome to post replies in the 2018 Tickets/Passes Offered threads as well as post their own thread in the 2018 Tickets/Passes Wanted message board. Do not start multiple threads or cross-post your need for tickets in other areas of the site. If you are looking for both tickets and vehicle passes, use only a single thread. If you have friends or campmates in need of tickets, encourage them to be radically self reliant and tell them to join the site, participate, and post their own plea. Be prepared for public scrutiny and criticism of your thread, it comes part and parcel with posting public pleas on message boards. Once you've found the tickets you need, tell us the good news. Either reply to your thread or contact one of the moderators to let us know that you got what you needed (please include a link to your thread), and we'll close your thread for you.

Please do not trade on the name and reputation of a Burning Man department or team unless you are already a member of that group and have your manager's permission.

All listings need to be a direct, person to person posts - no buying or selling on behalf of a third party, no bulk sales (like the Individual sale, our limit is 2 tickets/1 vehicle pass) and no links to tickets or passes being sold or auctioned through third party web sites. If you have multiple campmates looking for or offering tickets, encourage them to be radically self reliant and join the site and participate in this Burning Man community.

Tickets and vehicle passes may be sold for a fixed price only (no auctions or 'best offer' listings, and no conditional sales). You may not offer enticements for either tickets/passes offered or wanted postings.

We strongly encourage you not to post your telephone number or email address in the body of your message. This is a public board, posts get indexed and cached in a few short hours and be on the internet forever. Make sure that your ePlaya account has your current email address listed (click here to check and make changes), and then you can allow users to contact you via email by making a change through a setting in the User Control Panel (change 'Users can contact me by e-mail' to Yes, then Submit the change by clicking the button on the bottom of the page). That will allow people to contact you (and exchange phone numbers) without exposing your personal information on a public message board.

We understand that you're excited and want to buy or sell tickets/passes asap, but please avoid excessive thread-bumping (replies that don't add to the conversation, but only serve to bump the thread to the top of the board). Do not bump a thread unless you're the original poster, and do not bump your thread more than once per 7 days. Offenders could have their posts removed or their threads locked.

Burning Man is not able to provide ticket verification services for after-market ticket sales. Please do not send in requests to confirm tickets. See this page for information regarding ticket scalpers and scammers.

Finally, we'd like to remind you that Tickets and Passes Offered/Wanted are 'working' boards. Off-topic threads and posts may be moved or deleted by moderators. Please see the 2018 Tickets Discussion board for general ticket talk, or the Open Discussion board for general chatter and banter.

Good luck!
