Welcome to the board. A lot of us haven't quite wrapped our heads around the mechanics of the ticket lottery yet. Not all the info has been released yet; I think the stuff that was released was done in order to give people the news that they will need to register in a timely fashion during a span of two weeks, and to keep people from totally panicking (i.e., thinking there would be no event at all, which people were totally worried about because the theme has not yet been announced, and in recent years the theme was announced earlier).

But! We'll figure it out. There will be more news. Who knows what it'll be like.

boy these new eplayans are so, so....FERVENT!

it's like all of those young voters who helped propel obama to the white house their first time to the polls.

they of course, became quickly disillusioned with the whole process.

Welcome to ePlaya. Yes, you read correctly and the plan is to use a ticket lottery system for 2012. Don't cry, don't freak out. Wait until the details and particulars are announced before you worry about wrapping your head around them.

I am still having a hard time accepting that all my work and preparation will be left up to a "chance/luck" draw that I can go. A lottery is a chance/luck game, no effort or brains can help you win. Sure, there will be a lot of "winners", but there will still be losers. I am not a gambler, my shop lights remain off, I let the heat go out....of my shop and my heart...sad.

Hey I have an idea--let's not change the way tickets are sold and not have the theme be CONTENTMENT. :shock:

Change is hard. Especially when we know that something is going to be different than what we are accustomed to. No, I did not enjoy spending an entire day trying to get tickets, having the ticket-selling system meltdown, etc... But, I was familiar with the process. Now, we know it is going to be some sort of lottery system. The word "lottery" makes me nervous, since now, according to my understanding of what lottery means, I might NOT get a ticket. Then again, I need to try and be patient, as I wait for details on the new ticket purchasing system.

People have complained about the old system, so it has changed. We are complaining about the new system, before we have even tried it.

In the end, we either attend, or not. There is always something I don't like about Burning Man. I doubt that will ever change ;)

Life's full of chances. We all have to decide for ourselves what we feel are acceptable risks, and act accordingly. If an 85% probability (or greater, we won't know until full details are posted) of success isn't enough, you may want to leave the lights off.

I think... don't announce until BMOrg has their shit together with all the details would have made more sense. All this does is screw with peoples plans. Too late for that now though. Damage done. BM2012 attendance may actually drop from last years. It's happened before.
