It's hard to be sure, but my distinct impression of the culture of the board is that naked desperation isn't a useful tactic on this board. I know it puts many of us off. Personally, I find that all those es make me thing you're doing the pee-pee dance and neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed to find a toilet so bad.

Start with your friends--network the hell out of this. Join STEP, we are in June, the time that many start deciding they cannot or will not go, so that may increase the flow. And don't forget the OMG sale.

As for need. You need oxygen. You need water. You need food. You don't need to go to a self-indulgent festival of excess in an inhospitable desert. Manufacturing need, indulging in hyperbole, just make you look young and shallow to me. Have you ever actually suffered?

I only dislike such posts because all you gotta say is you need a ticket. You're no special case, EVERYONE who still needs a ticket feels just like you! Extra whining is meaningless and annoying like Crypto said, tell me more about how much extra cash you have that you don't neeeeeeeed!
Hell I need a couple tickets too. I have cash. That's all anyone neeeeeeeds to know!

There ain't such a thing as a free lunch or a free ticket, and STEP just makes me laugh. You want a ticket, cough up some pictures of Uncle Ben and move on.

STEP worked great last year. Might work well again. No promises. :)

Marissa, make yourself invaluable to your crew through hard work (and de-emphasize neeeeeeed, which most Burners shy away from) and you will probably get your chance. Don't stop looking or networking, get your time off, study the Survival Guide, and be ready. Good luck.

The other alternative is to go to ticket resale sites the week before the Burn and get yourself a ticket there. Last year, for instance, tickets were selling below face value in the week before the Burn.

These posts are so pointless at this time of year.

If you're not ready to pony up $600+ for a presale ticket, you should wait until tickets have actually shipped before making such request.
