Really ecstatic to have our tickets!! My boyfriend was able to spend the 2 hours waiting and refreshing, with me harassing him via text message.

Last year we gave up hope too early & made other plans. We were inundated with tickets from other sources as time went on, but couldn't make the time work any longer.

This year we decided that we were going, even if we didn't get tix this round and kind of thought we wouldn't. We did, but many of the long-time burners in our camp had nothing but trouble this time around. Strange days.

Sending good ticket faith to those who had a frustrating day!! <3

Success!

I initially got to the ticket purchasing page within the first half an hour of the sale but then got unceremoniously blind sided when the system gave me a "you've timed out" error message when I went to buy my tickets. After that I got back into the queue and since then I received various error messages over the past 3+ hours. About 20 minutes ago I was about to surrender and head home from my job when the "enter your secret code" page reappeared and made love to my tired eyes and weary soul. Yay! I just got 2 tickets! I thankfully already had 2 tickets through the holiday sale but needed 2 more tickets to take care of potential playa travel partners. Cool!

Best wishes for the rest of you kids!

Trilo: Kudos to you for keeping the masses informed about the ebb and flow of today's ticketing process and the error messages that have been popping up since the sale began.

P.S.

Big props to BMORG for how they've handled this year's ticketing process. Some of those folks clearly did a lot of work this year to get this sale right.

My coworker just signed on at 4, and got to the tix page at 4:40, 2 tix. Quite a bit better than the 4 hour thing I went though, but eventually got it sorted despite the 'sold out' issue. 2 tix! :mrgreen:

Got mine!!!!! Of the five or six friends I've talked to- we all logged in right when it started and all got tickets within about four hours. I only waited two so I feel pretty lucky. I couldn't be more excited and I hope others have positive endings as well despite the wait!

UPDATE: 14/16 tickets for our camp purchased in the main sale. Tickets seem to still be going out. 2 people left in line. It might not sell out right away! I kinda thought so. Might be due to less mainstream hype this year.

Yes - at the present time we've cleared the queue and tickets are still available. If for some reason your browser shows that you're in the queue, you may want to refresh and try again.
