I think you mean, "when ARE the tickets coming"!

They will probably be going out later in the month. I'm sure people will be posting here once they start hitting.

While "When are the tickets coming?" would be correct in standard English, the use of the colloquial internet speech pattern would allow an "is" variation. However, even under this standard the OP is incorrect in his usage, as the "s" in the verb should be changed to a "z" (e.g.: "has" becomes "haz", "is" becomes "iz"), and the definite article is dropped.

The correct phrasing in this usage should read: "when iz tickets coming?"

The use of an anthropomorphic cat image with a questioning expression is optional, but it is the standard accepted practice.

Cat Grammar

Postby gyre » Sat Jun 09, 2012 9:55 pm

I can't figure out why people on the net without grammar skills would assume cats have none.


I think cats simply have little motivation to communicate.

this is also one of the reasons it's ok to say "Niggaz" on line.

It's all about managing your expectations. Expect that they'll ship out on the last day of the month, then be pleasantly surprised if they go out any sooner.

I've called three times already this month to make sure that they didn't get lost in the mail.

STEP doesn't stop as they start mailing out tickets (from the FAQ):

Q: When does STEP close?
A: You can only use STEP to resell your tickets before you have received physical tickets. For anyone who has opted for delivery of their tickets, that means until June, when shipping begins. Those that have selected Will Call for their method of delivery are able to use STEP until August 7. If you want to increase your flexibility, you can change your order to Will Call by visiting online support and selecting “change order to Will Call" from the drop down menu. People will be able to buy tickets using STEP through August 7.

It does get less likely that you'll get a ticket via STEP, but hopefully it will be more likely to find one in person. One theory I felt was very rational regarding the "greedy burners" that bought too many tickets was that they wouldn't risk there being any sort of record that they overbought because the "scrubbing process" Trilo regularly refers to involved and will continue to involve the removal of people's eligibility based on the judgement of those doing the list scrubbing. When selling in person one or two at a time no one will be able to tie them to their deeds and they'll be "safe" to do it again if the lottery is given another shot.

There's only so much waiting they can/should do. The tickets were to go out "sometime in June" and for the sake of seeing more hit the market (hopefully from kind hearted folks selling at face value) the tickets do really need to get mailed. It'll be a great time to be in San Fran if you don't have a ticket yet - heh. Not so much up here where zero tickets have sold locally on CL or via the paper or anything for any burns to date. For all I know 2012 could be the start of a new trend but for the most part if you get a ticket and you live in Montana you're probably already fully committed at that point or you wouldn't have gone that far.
