That's a comment the original poster and others should take to heart. There are many more ways to skin a cat than any one person can think of. My solution was to back off and get out of the crowd. This solution is to go _in_ and get out of the crowd - probably a better suggestion for the poster than mine.
Either way, if you have a problem, it's up to you to solve it. I encourage coming to ePlaya (maybe tips and tricks is better for most problems), identify your problem, but come with a proposed solution and run it by the crowd. See what other answers crop up.
I think far and away the majority of Burners are like the guys standing in front of AntiM - she voiced her problem, and they solved it for her. :-> Maybe she would have wanted them to sit down, but they had another solution for her.
It really is anarchy - if I have a problem, it's up to me to fix it. It's _probable_ that passersby will jump in to help (I've had that happen to me when I needed help, and I've jumped in to help others), but in the end, it's up to me. I think Jayce is an excellent example of people proposing alternate answers, and his is an excellent proposal. Jump in and help.
