The line has been moving slowly so I don't think you need to worry. Just keep your lawn chair set up in place and you should be able to return without a problem.

At least feel good that you're not in line for something lame like paying for an iPhone, but rather for BM tickets. I'm sure the company is better too.

I'm going to stay with a friend, he offered me a place to sleep in his basement, he said the drawback would be the bathroom is upstairs. No problem. Looks like I will at least get to practice while there, I'll ask him if he has an empty wide mouth liquid laundry detergent bottle I can borrow, or maybe a 5 gallon bucket and some trash bags. I've invited this guy along to BM in the past....now it looks like I'm gonna have to take it to him.

Timestamp 12:16:55 reporting in ... We got our tickets, at the $390 level. Total was $805, including the will call and convenience fee.

For those still waiting, we wish you the best of luck. For the rest, we’ll see you in the dust.

P.S. We should all try to meet somewhere at BM. We seem to have a unique family here.

I'm sorry, but most people here don't care that you got your STEP ticket, but rather want to know what your timestamp is (the new "ASL?!").

Wow. I'm in the same time stamp territory (12:21) AND I've got the Mutant Vehicle invite as well. This will be my second burn (if I get a ticket), and it's the first time I've tried to build a mutant vehicle! Amazing coincidences... Hope to see you and your MV out there! Good luck four20ps!!!

I'm feeling a little anxious as are the rest of you. My greatest concern is I might miss the message. My time stamp is 12:17 so I feel it is close. For someone who has gotten a STEP ticket, how was the message addressed? Is it obvious who it is from or what it's about? I'm afraid it might get sent to the SPAM folder or something. Any answer would be greatly appreciated. sorry I sound like a nervous nellie but you know how it is...Thanks



My email said:

From: Burning Man Tickets
Subject: Burning Man STEP: ticket(s) available

All I needed to see was "Burning Man" to get my full attention.


Thank you Kenrock, It helps to know what I'm looking for - Fingers crossed :D

LOL

Got my STEP confirmation yesterday morning (28.06.12) at 0605GMT. (Time-stamp Fri 02/03/2012 20:19 (1219 PST) for anyone who is reading the time-stamp tea-leaves)

Clicked on the link this morning at 1340GMT (29.06.12)

"Your ticket link has expired, is in use or has already been used.

Please contact customer support if you have any questions. Thank you."



LOLOLOLOLOL - Dontcha just love automated systems - this is why I work in IT - so I'm the one at the other end going LOLOLOL

It says the following when I click on the relevant link at support:

"STEP Says My Link has expired before 72 hours
If you have received an email with a link to purchase tickets through STEP, and after clicking it, you get a message that says:
"your link has expired or is in use"
and it has not been 72 hours since you received it,
please wait 35 minutes and then use the link again."

Can you just pull my teeth out with no anaesthetic instead, please?

i can't believe there hasn't been significant movement regarding STEP tickets this week. i really thought w/ physical tickets being mailed, we'd see SOMETHING go down.... maybe next week.... :)

My friend just missed her chance at 2 STEP tickets at the 390 price. She didn't have enough money at first and recently lost her debit card and her credit card didn't have a high enough limit for the purchase. I was going to loan her some but by the time everything got sorted out through the bank it was down to the wire on the 72 hour time frame to get the tix. Finally, once we were good to go we had about 20 minutes left on the 72 hour period we got the link expired error. The solution on the STEP FAQ said wait 35 min and try again, that put us over the time. So now somebody else has a shot, good luck.

She deleted or lost the original email and this one, to purchase the tickets (forwarded it to me so i could check it out), didn't have any time stamp info so sorry for the lack of info.

I sent the email request for a link to sell one of my tickets back into the STEP program. As soon as it has happened, I will let you guys know. It is a $390 ticket.

Have a happy Friday! :)

This error message appears when you have multiple browser windows opened to the same link. You most likely opened it on your phone when you got the email and then on your home computer. Close your entire browser. Restart your computer and phone if you need to. The link will work.

So as soon as I can figure out how to resell one back to STEP, there will be another coming available (if I don't fuck it up) Any one have to sell one of their pair from STEP back into the Matrix? I just don't want to lose both. Help....

This kind of goes against what I thought I knew about ticketing. You're not supposed to be able to buy a step ticket since you have a camp ticket. You know that already since you were told they'd be scouring step for people with theme camp tickets.
I don't think you can buy one of these two step offers and transfer it to someone else either, so how is that going to work? None of my beeswax I know, but how is this going to work out exactly? Mods? Experts? Bueller?

I am guessing since I was registered in STEP for two tickets and was only awarded one theme camp ticket? On the flipside, it would have sucked to get dropped from STEP as I have only gotten the one ticket out of the two that I was in line for. Anyways, I am selling one back into the STEP program so I will only have the original two tickets that I signed up for in the lottery & STEP.... so all will be right with the world. And the BMORG will make and extra few bucks off me for the restocking fee.

But they will both be non-transferrable?
Because your first STEP ticket has to be in your name, and your second (non applicable in this case) has to be given to someone riding with you OR you can maybe put the name on it at will call or as you order it.
Theme camp tickets (I thought) were also given to individuals with names on them. Since I don't have a theme camp ticket, I'm not 100% on that. But I'm pretty sure camp leaders/requesters have to name names to associate with those allocated tickets.
