Cool, all i knew is that my Burning Man Tickets Early Arrival Pass (EAP) bar code last year that was sent directly from Burning Man Tickets to the same name and e-mail address that i used to register for tickets this year. I believe my other 5 camp mates who had EAPs last year, also had their EAP bar codes sent to the same name and e-mail address that they used to register for the lottery this year.
I'm totally cool with believing that the six of us who had EAP bar codes sent directly from the org's Burning Man Tickets (firstname.lastname@example.org
) EAP bar code list directly to our email addresses being denied tickets whereas our camp mates who did not receive EAP bar codes did much better was a statistical anomaly due to limited data points.
I assume the others who so kindly responded as getting tickets this year were directly on the Burning Man Tickets EAP bar code list last year, rather than a number of EAP bar codes being sent to a camp coordinator and the camp coordinator printing them out and distributing them. I don't know how Burning Man distributed EAP bar codes to the camps last year.
BTW, BlackRockCityPimp, like your camp, our camp also did well in the lottery, we're only short a ticket or two. We gave our camp mates about the same info you gave your camp mates, we told people to overbid the $390's a bit, double-bid the $320's, and you have a snowball's chance if you bid the $240's.
I'm sure our camp's experience with the EAPs<->2012 tickets is just a statistical anomaly then, sorry to even ask about this, thanks for the feedback.
My heart goes out to all our friends trying to obtain tickets.
