Main Sale Ticket Success?!

Tried logging into the sale through my email. It didn't work, timed out so I quickly logged into Burner Profile and I'm in some kind of waiting game with two arrows circling each other.

Arrows tumbling just like the butterflies in my tummy...

Apparently chasing arrows are the new running man, without the same sense of (possibly false) progress! 🤞🏻

Same here. I clicked the button from Burner Profile right at noon, got the "you're early" message until about 12:02, now I'm in recycle arrow limbo. On the upside, I'm having a noontime beer.

I wonder how many people tried logging in through email vs Burner Profile?

Email failed me, kept timing out.

Me as well re: failure of the email button/link (I replied in the other thread also). Swirling arrows here.

Chasing arrows at 12:20. Afraid to refresh. Anyone get a "sold out" yet?

Used Burner Profile link.

I got 522 Could Not Connect errors for about two minutes and then finally got the spinner. Sadly, my brother just got dumped with a 502 error after 20 minutes of watching the spinner. Looks like the new vendor has introduced our old ticket day frustrations.

Copied the unique link, pasted it in my address bar, clicked load right at 12:00:00, and got to the ticket page at 12:02.

It occurred to me that although in the recent past the sale was 'done and done' within around 45 minutes, this year with the new vendor that may not hold true. Could be longer before the 'Sold Out' signal is sent.

I just got dumped off the spinning arrows page...it kept timing out and giving me various error messages every 3 or 4 minutes...."handshake failed" or "connection timed out".
One would think in 2019 that this would have been resolved already...same crap every year.

I got kicked the 522 error at 12:20, after a few refreshes, I did get the sold-out screen (just like in years past). So... I think it's over.

Eplaya is very slow, with intermittent "cannot handle request" errors. Relatedly, the ticket waiting page is on a burningman.org domain. So basically, that domain is getting hammered right now. I'm sure the IT team scaled up capacity for today, but not enough. That said, even if all of AWS was available, tickets would still be a crapshoot.

My story is the same as most of yours. The email link failed 6 straight times. Then the Burner Profile link worked on the first try but after a few minutes, so I'm not hopeful. If you used email link like me, you chose... poorly.

522'ed after 33 minutes? Do we have a sellout?

I tried the link on my profile FIRST.... then after a minute tried the email link. Neither worked at first. Finally got through at 12:02. So I think it was a system delay and not necessarily related to method of access?

Weird that some are getting kicked out of the Queue ... I have separate window open for the Queue on my laptop, split screen with this forum on the other half.

Last year I think using a smartphone to access the sale was not a good idea.

Same here. Separate window, those little arrows just churning right along.

What’s strange is that nobody seems to have gotten tickets - usually by now there are SOME people posting about being victorious. Anyone heard of a completed transaction?

Got in line at 12 on the dot. Stood in line for about 15 minutes and then got the network error. Refreshed once and got back in line. Crashed again 5 minutes later. Now I can't get more than a blank page. Tried the link on both my computer and phone now. Same blank page. Ugh. That's disappointing. Sounds like the new ticket vendor bit off more than they could chew. :(

It let me put a ticket and a parking pass in a cart about 5 minutes ago, and it asked for an access code. I don't know any code.
