I make minimum wage and was hoping to apply for a low income ticket this year. Last year I had my low income ticket revoked because I participated in the main sale, however. I am wondering if the burning man staff will see this in my history and reject my application or later revoke my ticket as a result?
I was not trying to commit a transgression last year, I just did not know what I was doing as a new burner who panicked last minute about going. I also made minimum wage last year and they initially awarded me a low income ticket. I later participated in the main sale because I became concerned they might not accept my low income application (which i applied for relatively late), and I would be stuck without a ticket all together. A friend of mine realized my concerns and lent me a few hundred dollars to enable me to participate in the main sale, with the goal of having a secure ticket in mind. I am an honest person, I was just brand new to BM and did not understand or prepare well for the ticket sales last year.
Will the fact that I had my low income ticket revoked last year to what looks like a breach in policy on paper preclude me from receiving one this year? (I am not going to participate in the main sale unless I somehow get a surge on income in the very near future- unlikely).
I am going to be asking the ticketing staff about this as well but I thought I would put it here in case anyone had similar experiences
