I entered at 1:03 but have been fooling around on other webpages like I am now or making lunch; the screen goes black from inactivity, when I move the mouse get out of blackness, I have to refresh the page.

(Not sure if not being active at the screen caused my need to refresh or I missed opportunity to buy tix 'cause I was makin lunch?)

Better break out two windows and keep my eye on the moving blue lines, while I type letter to my lawyer regarding: http://sycamorevista.org/

Illy, I got in line around 12:00:32. Then booted at 12:13, and then a few more times before going to the "Buy" page. I get the feeling that I did not lose my place in line. (Although it felt like it at the time)

Productivity at work has ended for the day while I celebrate (in my mind).

billybwilde - that's not true, Ticketmaster and LiveNation run into server troubles on high demand ticket on sales all the time, even in 2013. Once you get past 10K users trying to get in all at once, things generally go haywire.

PrpiT - glad to hear you got through! For what it's worth, the ticket/shipping/will call fees have not changed in years.

westnileraven (and any others getting a passcode rejection) - send an email with details of your situation to ticketsupport@burningman.com (include any screen shots/error messages along with your passcode info).

I'm not doing ANYTHING else on that machine after the first crash - just letting it sit and refresh. After almost an hour and a half, still sitting and letting it do its thing. It sure would be nice if I knew (at least approximately) where I was in the queue! Showing me my IP address is not very informative. And here I thought the simplification and lack of price tiers would help! *sigh*

I hit refresh precisely three times throughout. I kept my eye on the timestamp and only refreshed when it crashed to a little page not found in the middle (once) and the stamp stopped updating (twice) I'm in the UK

Same here.
Entered my code around 12:04. Next page up was only displaying "Please stand by...", the waiting bar, and way at the bottom "Tickets are first-come, first-served.
If demand is high you may not get to buy a ticket. This page will redirect you to the ticket buy page if there are still tickets available when your turn in line is reached."

No other message. No "you're in queue". No time displayed.
Doesn't look very hopeful.

It feels really weird getting my tickets without a whole lot of drama. It must be a little karmic payback after getting so screwed last year!

Stick with it everyone...I'm thinking good thoughts for all of you!

I must be missing something... I logged in and was in queue at 12:00:10 pm PST.
Still waiting at 1:39:03 pm PST. I just don't understand how everybody else had such an easy time getting their tix in about 10 minutes as per a lot of posts here. What sort of prioritization is going on here ?!?
Do I have to wait another four hours?

Sorry but had to vent... :roll:

Help! I started around 12:04 and spent an hour or so waiting (on my ipad, safari) before going on my desktop (chrome) a few minutes ago. Am I starting at the back of the queue again?! And why is this taking so long? Am I the only one getting this problem? The first few posts looks like people are getting their tickets after 5-10mins of waiting!

Turned out I should never have listened to you. I now have the "Your passcode is not registered" screen.

HOLY SHIT! I'M VERY VERY SORRY!!!!

I should add "Never listen to anything I say!" back in my sige line.

After an hour, got to the purchase screen. No Amex option, for the only card I have that I use every year. Awesome. Guess I'm done.

Eeeep. Not taking Amex really should have been on the pre-reg emails :?

Almost two hours in and still in queue. Three crashes, page is refreshing like it should otherwise, and I hit the ticket page at exactly noon. Just.... still sitting in the queue. Thank f*ck someone I was online with was able to buy two. Now I can log off this damn thing and pay them back tonight. With cash and whiskey.

i just got mine, i first entered my passcode at 12:00:34, never got bumped, and then got to thru at 1:34 PM (what's with the 34's?!).
Piece of cake once I got in...
I think it's funny that they put all the "fine print" stuff, as if anyone is going to spend any of their precious 15 minutes to read it!!!
I hope there weren't any new rules that forbid bringing plush animals or hot pepper shots!
Also odd: I got "in" precisely when I had entered my eplaya password... undeniably just a coincidence, but I was just about to post that I agree, I too was getting very hungry!!

Best wishes to you all! Have patience -- the world is not trying to prevent you from having fun; only you can do that.
