I'm not sure that they'd allow oddballs off the street to participate in the stuffing. It would be very easy for someone to put a ticket or two into their own pockets...

my presale confirmation email was time stamped : Wed 12/14/2011 2:37 PM ... so I don't have to read this entire thread, someone just tell me: should I panic b/c I've not received a shipment confirmation email??? It's JULY 6 and the mailing was supposed to be last month, if my recollection does not fail me. F.

Breathe darlin' it will be OK. Lots of us do not have our tickets yet. And many receive tickets with no email notice beforehand.

Your tickets will come.

Yeah, I also did a address change request (the purchase through the delivery is over 6 months, that probably wasn't too good on whatever system they had to deal with the packing/shipping). And I put a note that I was in transit, so don't deliver until 'x/x/x'. I would have put mine near the end if I was them... So I'm guessing I'll be nearly (if not) last to get mine.

Me? No email / No notice / No tickets .... Yet.

That will vary depending on delivery times between SF and the recipient's location, using USPS.

Today is July 8. No email, no tickets. When do we should we officially get worried? Will it be announced that all tickets have been mailed? We got third tier tickets in the lottery.

Last week of July, maybe.

50,000 tickets, hand stuffed into envelopes with Atomic Fireballs (or similar). It takes time. Trust me, they are fully aware that people are anxious, but don't you want them paying attention as they ship rather than just stuffing the envelopes & hoping they get there?

the amount of time it's taking to ship the tickets may be justifiable, but it's hard to understand why an email hasn't been sent out explaining the situation.

no communication. not cool. easy to fix though. question is, will someone?

if we satisfy ourselves things can't be different, they never will be.


remember at one time the STEP program was going to limit applicants to one ticket each. voices raised. policy changed.

change is possible. but it doesn't come from wishing. it comes from bitching.

BMORG should at least be responsible enough and also head off all of the emails and post asking where the tickets are by letting people know that they are stil in the process of being mailed out. This kind of terriible communcations is exactly why they were being taken over the coals since the whole ticket changed were announced.

I got $320 level tickets; no tickets/shipping email yet... it's already July 9, and I move in about 2 weeks. :( I know whining won't make them come any faster, I'm just grumpy that I may have to fork out $60 for mail forwarding/address change with Canada Post.

I've done this just because, and it's closer to $40.

I also received an email from the ticketing folks after I explained my sitch, and they kindly suggested Will Call, but said do it soon as I'm in the queue to mail out and they're moving through them pretty quickly.

If that makes anyone else feel better, it does for me. and I have mail forwarding to a person who can courier stuff to me on the road, if it comes to that.

I've chosen to wait and hope for the best and if things get squishy, they get squishy. I've decided to leave it up to the whims of the Great Magnet. :wink:

Just knowing we're not alone here with no email and no tickets (bought in presale) is a bit comforting. Won't it be nice when the only queue we're in is the queue of cars leading into BRC?
