My buddy is in the same shape, I got mine early and he didn't get the ok to go until the "sold out" sign went up. But adding the tickets for sale on Ebay, stubbhub etc (just a couple of hundred) and most not selling. It looks to me like if the organization just sold a few hundred more before cutting off sales it would have avoided this mess. Anyway they learned something, they can charge more next year.....

Sure, because there are only a few hundred people looking for tickets lol...

I've got news for you. There is demand for at least 7000 tickets out there, with fewer than 1000 tickets floating around (between friends with tickets, Craig's List, eBay, ePlaya, etc). Just looking at ePlaya (which is a generally hopeful place), the picture's pretty grim. 2,000 have signed up since tickets sold out (3,000 since the beginning of July. Plus many ePlaya veterans are looking. Let's just go with the post-sellout members, 2K people looking for an average of 2 tickets apiece. 4,000 people. And 19 tickets being offered, if you include posts about raffles and contests.

The numbers you see here are the tip of some desert iceberg, no doubt. I'm a relentless booster of Burning Man, so I partly blame myself, but there are far, FAR too many stories of veterans and hight percentages of camps looking, even with scalpers. The final numbers last year I saw on the board were over 51K; I was proud of that, but wonder if BMORG got threatened with a big honkin' fine if it happened again. They need to appeal for a "population variance" to take the pressure off (and kick the Stubf**ks of this world in the nuts so they back off next year)

No. You want a ticket. And the answer to your question is on the front page of the BM website. You can also google it. Its not hard to find.

If that's what it looks like to you then you should clean the dust off your goggles. They did not have a choice in the matter. And there are more than a few hundred people looking for tickets.

The OP's lack of heart tugging bullshit is refreshing.

I hope you find a fair deal on a ticket.

I could be very wrong, just hadn't seen that many posts looking vs those selling.
LIke years past a lot people that have to drop out would have been looking to sell at face value if they could get it if there was no shortage.
And I wonder how many people don't buy till the last 3 weeks? Most likely a lot more than I figure.....

Stand corrected, Roy

We're not waiting for you to recite the magic words--we're not holding out on you. :) It's that the Sellers are posting, and Buyers are flocking to them. So tell all your real life friends & family you're looking, and be ready to chase. The gazelle is not going to stroll up with a cigarette holder dangling from its hoof and say "Heyyyyy." You have to chase it! Kill it! Eat it! Get that @#$% ticket.

Or no dinner!

Good luck.

I'm probably going to end up sounding like a broken record on this point, but have you talked to your local representative? No guarantees, it's a long shot, but people talk to each other, and word of mouth has a way of finding its way over to these guys. Maybe somebody was planning to go, but things came up, and now he wants to know how to sell an expensive ticket he can't use, in order to recover the cost. He goes to a party, talks about it, and word gets around.

Or no such thing happens, but at worst, you've wasted a little breath, and somebody who hears a lot and likes to help people knows that you're looking.

Responsible custodianship of the land, Enlight, that's how, at least in part. Neither the BLM nor the LLC has done anything other than what each of them should.

Thanks for the good feedback everyone.
This would be my first burn so I dont have a local representative. And my circle of friends are far from the burner type. Not to mention in my area everyone is flocking to tickets. Even craigslist has people selling tix for 800 a pop. But I see what you did there....You got me sounding like the rest of the pathetic souls with their bullshit excuses so i wont ramble further because that was the whole point of this thread.
About the picture of my penis it can be arranged if you desire. Drop me a pm with your face shot and I'll gladly drop you some of me in return.

On the contrary - you always have a local representative, whether you've ever been to Burning Man or not. Just go to the regional network page on the Burning Man homepage, find where you live on that map, and click away.

Don't think that because you haven't already been to Burning Man, that those representatives aren't there to help you. Virgins are more than welcome to drop by.

Only because you choose to see yourself that way. I didn't find your request pathetic, and I saw no signs of anybody else feeling that it was, either. You know where you want to be, and you're making an effort to get there. Nothing wrong with that.

Incorrect. I'd hazard that this is one of the top 3 most civil, least annoying "I need a ticket" threads on ePlaya. Buyers threads are rarely effective (because Sellers don't usually read them) but you didn't try to give anyone a hard luck story, and we respected you for it. If you've a mind to do it, keep refreshing the tickets page, and keep trying.
