the site would not respond for a few minutes. then I got the page, excitedly filled in my info, and .... NOTHING. no response to my clicks. It just doesn't do anything. No evidence of any activity. Maybe it doesn't work with my computer? I tried safari and firefox both.

There is probably a huge demand on the website right now. did it time out?

Eventually, I did get the reply, and I'm registered. Given the frustration level involved here to spend $380/ticket, you'd think they could have had some kind of "click received" or other feedback? It would have been mightily appreciated.

I guess this is first-com, first-served, it's not a lottery. So, this pits us all against each other? (I didn't even know that, that this was a race. I just happened to have a horrible experience trying to get tickets previously, and was just anxious enough to start near noon.) Is this really in line with the BRC ethos of community?

It's hard not to be a sourpuss but geez ...after the whole thing last time from the ticket disaster last year, you'd think they would have really gotten it straight and fair by now.

[Here comes ticket flame:]

To get into the original ticket sale, you would have had to search through the dozens of jackrabbit emails with subjects like "tickets", to find the one and only urgent and life-and-death one finally announcing the date, AND you would have had to know that "Pre-registration" was the critical term (If I saw that, I would have assumed this was not relevant, I was looking for "registration". This super-urgent life and death email had the subject line, "[BManUpdate] V17:#13:2.4.13". I suppose that was obvious to everyone else, I guess I'm just stupid. But I missed the enormous 4 day window for this despite many frustrating hours Oct-Dec. looking through every single JR newsletter and getting nothing. And I can't help but be really disappointed and let down by B-Man staff, and incredibly, incredibly frustrated.

And now this "race to click" nonsense!

Did they ever, this year or last year, present some ideas and have a critically examined TEST of their system?

Flame off.

Best of luck to everyone for tickets.

well, thats really YOUR fucking problem, not ours.



it's not the issue, it's YOUR REPONSE to the issue that is an issue. you feel frustrated because YOU WANT TO FEEL FRUSTRATED.

i would hate to see what you would do in an actual crisis.

now go fuck yourself, i'm feeling incredibly frustrated with your frustration.

Hey Bruce.

First come, first served is a response to a dislike of/logistical issues with last year's lottery.

There are now more people who want to attend Burning Man than the government will allow in the space. So yes, there is a bit of competition for tickets.

If you don't like reading the JRS (in which you can use your browser to search for the word "ticket" if you don't want to read the whole thing) . . . the Burning Man website has the same info as the JRS, but with graphics. Jack Rabbit Speaks is just another method at your disposal. Some folks don't like remembering to visit a website, so it works for them.

Finally, you can turn on your BBCode if you would like your quotes and other tags to work.

User Control Panel --> Board Preferences --> Edit Posting Defaults --> Enable BBCode --> Submit.

Good luck in your ticket search.

Bruce Honey, Wow. Searching JRS, being frustrated, being pitted in a death match with me, (watch out, I'm 60 but I'm feisty). No. You're not stupid. And the worst part is over. I promise there won't be ANY obstacles for you to overcome at the burn. All of your equipment will function perfectly. You won't lose or forget anything. Your neighborhood will be serine and lovely day and night. Very similar to a Disney cruise.

Did you not see the very first sticky post that has been there since Jan called "Burning Man 2013 Tickets Info " it has all the info, was really not hard to follow

It's only a horrible race if you make it/perceive it as one...

Is it just me, or clicking on the Sign up for STEP button, once logged onto Burner Profile does nothing?

Have tried in different browsers, with no difference or feedback that anything is happening by clicking that button?!

dusty thanks,
