What would be there next step??
How long are the credit card going to be hanging for hackers pot of gold??

What happens if a level dose not sell out?? Like not enough bids come in at that level..It would piss me off no end if these tickets are sold first come..


Very good questions, and I'd be pissed if that happens too, unjon. I'm hoping that the full details and FAQ are posted soon.

Big Island, baby. Kona side. Oahu sucks donkey balls. In a good way, it is Hawaii after all.

we interupt the current tirade of naysayers and omg'ers for this unimportant message...

Ok I'm a 2012 virgin, never been and have NO reasonable fear that I will be out of luck under the new proposed system. I didn't participate with the apparent craziness last year but read about it. All that being said here is a n00bs perspective...
there are at least 13 threadson this topic thus far...I can't believe that anyone at BMorg is trying, in anyway, to freak people out (though perhaps they are?, jk), virgins or vets, I think they are earnestly looking for a practical solution to a problem. Would could possibly be gained from trying to piss off so many loyal burners or freak out any n00bs by changing the system in an effort to exclude ANYONE? Isn't inclusion one of the principles? I purpose this - get the fuck over it!
I'm certain that the powers that be have read, ad nauseum, the 13+ threads dedicated to this topic. I believe they are doing what they truly believe is a reasonable solution. It may work great...it may not...but hasn't this topic been beat to within inch of its short life enough??? There have been some viable alternatives suggested, which may or not been considered and abandoned. It appears that there will be a test run first which may support the new process or negate it altogether. Lastly, the details, to the best of my limited knowledge, have not been released so perhaps all the crazy is for nothing...

Let me reiterate, I am a 2012 n00b, so at the end of the day what do I know...just stating, IMHO, the obvious...
ps I had no idea which thread to post this in and as iI generally like most of the folks in this thread so I chose this one cuz I thought I would be beat up on less... :D
we return now to our scheduled programming...

All I know is I'm done with spending money on burningman until i have tickets confirmed.
Everyone is talking about signing up for the holiday lottery and signing up to get extra tickets, totally screwing my peace of mind.

Mmmmmm I love the smell of Burning Man Token

There is no question that you will get tickets. It really the contortions that you may have to go through to get there. The peace of mind is a big thing.

A sound approach TK...I finally stopped letting the crazy talk interfere with my POM...I started avoiding the BM boards and then I remembered that if I did that I couldn't get to know some cool people............wait for it.........like you!

That's so fucking warm and fuzzy it could make ya puke...but don't!
