On the odd chance that no one else corrects the sparklemouse, dpw, who lays out the city and does the clean up, is unpaid.
Those people who work for United Site Services not only put out the porto-potties, but pick them up at the end of the week, they also Clean Them Out Three Times A Day.
Actually, she puts forth one of the few good arguments for the heavy inclusion of veterans I've run across--if someone who's been there before is so clueless as to how the city works, then how much more ignorant are the total newbs going to be?

I'm calling troll-post on this. This poster has 100% of the critical elements of a troll post. I am surprised that you veteran eplayers are falling for this crap... Let's see brand-new playa account? Check. All posts thus far only related to this flame-war? Check. Attack of sacred burning man of notions? Check. Made sure to state that poster is has only been going for 2 years for added offensiveness? Check. Filled with ludicrous statements that are universally known to be false such as paid-staff clean up after event? Check.

Piss-off old-timers? 100% check.

This is probably Simon arguing with his alter-ego on here purely for comedic effect....

bravo, well done....

those 10k tickets aren't going to veterans in the normal sense. they're going to friends of the people who work with the BMorg. while they may be veterans, they're moreover the new class of burner. they're the chosen ones. the term 'veteran' doesn't really do them justice. they've proven to the BMorg that they are better than other burners - the elite - the cool kids - they're what burning man is all about.

they may build theme camps or not. it's just enough to be one of them and they can identify amongst themselves with some kind of secret signal. everyone will want to be them.

that's why i'd rather see those 10k more new attendees like the 80% of tickets already sold.

Wow.

I guess my 11 years and my small art project giving away art just aren't cool enough for you. I should have left all that MOOP I picked up on the ground. I shouldn't have worn any type of costume or brought stuff to share or volunteered, because a paid staff would make your candy-ass party that much better. Glitter my ass.

So, which art car denied you a ride? Which bat wouldn't serve you a drink? Who told you to pick up your shit? Who yelled at you for MOOPy glitter or feathers? Because you sound as though you had a very negative experience. Care to share?

The 10K tickets are going to the camps that PROMOTE THE BURNING MAN BRAND AND KEEP IT VIABLE. Thats it.

ITS A BUSINESS

7 million in payroll last year.

BM "Corporation" has an EXTREMELY marketable brand that they intend to keep as strong as possible. It's not about community, its not about tenets, its not about playa spirit. ITS ABOUT MONEY

ITS A BUSINESS

BONAROO/COACHELLA/ETC provide services with their ticket. Not only do they have to set up large festival cities e.g. Burning Man, they pay millions for world class performance aritists, artwork, and all sorts of related services. BM INCORPORATED sets up a few portapotties in a desert and charges as much/more than these other festivals. And they have sold you on this noncorpororate BRAND that you market for them FREE OF CHANGE. ITS A BUSINESS and AN EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL ONE.

It might be a camp that has several years on record of showing up on time, cleaning up their trash, cooperating with the org (or the rangers, or the police, or the city), submitting a camp plan to which they actually adhere...

They just said all that shit to get killer placement. The several virgin burners didn't stick around because they didn't feel welcome; you'd hang out at the burn barrel and absolutely none of the veterans would acknowledge you were there. On the way out, after watching a couple nearly beat the piss out of each other 'cause their vehicle wouldn't start, my wife and I decided we had to come back and do it right. We created a camp, invited a bunch of people, and swore to ourselves we would live up to our camp promises.

That should be worth something. We're not part of the BRC in-crowd since we can't come every year, so, we'll probably not get to go this year either. But, if the camps that get the tickets participate and contribute more than we do, they should get them.

Sorry if this has already been answered.. I've got the flu and only came on to find this one answer out.

Will they be publishing which theme camps/art they've saved? I don't want to know how many tickets they gave to each camp/artist, nor do don't care to know who ends up with the ticket. I just want to know which theme camp or art installation they saved. Which theme camp or piece of art they believe BM couldn't do without. I mean this in a positive way. I want really would love to see them publish the locations of these so I can check them out. I think it would be cool.

Gee, Gorillex - thanks for the PM with the same "stuff" you have been spamming all over the board. I have no problem discussing this on the forum.

I know the Burning Man LLC is a business and have no problem with that.

I am curious as to what exactly you find wrong with Burning Man LLC being a business?? It is not like anyone has kept this a secret. From what I know, it greatly simplifies the dealings with BLM and protects the board members from getting sued when some fool falls into a fire.

In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
~Burning Man Principle 3

Isn't Burning Man turning the art installations, theme camps, etc. into commodities by setting aside 10,000 tickets for them? Whereby the art projects and theme camps are the commodity and the price of the ticket is the price you pay to experience them.

kinda like when the Mv's suspect of being narcs are tagged or other crap like that.

if this is true at all (and i really don't care either way) wouldn''t it be cooler if one of the chosen/elite were cool enough to constanly leak out the secret signal and drive them all a bit nutz? :roll:

For those who are interested, i found this cross thread that is a rebroadcast of a meeting with the powers that be.

The first 30 to 40 minutes is very enlightening. They have apparently already have chosen the camps who will be awarded tickets. However, these camps must apply in order to be granted tickets. The number of camps and tickets awarded remaining in flux, but they DID state that only about half of the camps will get some.
