I just registered on May 11!

So I guess you all want to know my time stamp....?

Should I pull out and fix my tent? Is there a chance for late people like me??

Stay in it, but work other avenues. Tell everyone you're looking for one, look out for the OMG Sale in August, watch Craigslist.
Don't do Ebay or stubhub...
And I forget what the precautions for Craigslist are.

Yes, fix your tent. No one can guarantee that you're going to get luck through STEP, but there's a decent chance.

Here are some of the precautions Fishy alluded to.

Avoiding Fraud & Buying Third Party Tickets:

How can I tell if a ticket is real?
Your best assurance is by buying it from someone you know and trust. Our tickets have numerous physical security features, unique foils, embossings, and variable data. Remember, just because a ticket is real, doesn't mean it is still valid.

How can I know that the ticket I'm buying is valid?
The only real way to know a ticket is real and valid is to buy it from someone you know and trust. Before you buy a ticket from a third party, check to make sure it is not listed as a ticket number that has been canceled or voided. (Voided ticket list will be posted at a later date)

If I buy a ticket on eBay, Stub Hub or a re-seller site is it still valid?
We have no problem with people selling their unneeded tickets for face value (plus service fees) and this is possible to do using eBay's "Buy it now" feature. If a ticket has been auctioned and/or sold for high above its face value, we may have canceled and voided that ticket. To be safe, you should never pay above face value for a ticket.

How can I buy a third party ticket safely?
The safest way to buy a third party ticket is by buying it from STEP or directly from someone you know. Second to that, your safest bet is buying a ticket from someone in your immediate community of Burners.

I just got my STEP offer for two tickets.

My time stamp was 1:06 (mountain, so 12:06 pacific)

So the queue is definitely moving. Good luck!!

STEP-queue-dwelling-folks will be happy to know that my camp mate received 2 STEP tickets today.

i'm sure trilo's first question is, "what was the time stamp?" and the answer is 12:08 on the day STEP went live.

good luck STEPpers even though you probably won't need it. :)

I'm a virgin and totally late to the STEP game. I registered on May 22nd. Thinking positive, but what are my best bets to get two tickets?

Thanks in advance!

If you can afford it, holiday tickets are fairly easy to find at 600 each, but if your like the rest of us you just have to keep your eyes open. Keep your hopes up, I expect once tickets get mailed out they will start popping up on craigslist and such. You can also make a post in the Tickets Wanted section and try your luck but I wouldn't just post and hope.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread. My friend registered for STEP and has been very anxious about the process. It's nice to be able to tell her that ticket offers ARE going out now. Bumping this thread... Can we share more updates? Who else got an offer through STEP?
