I'm not going to yell and scream, I'm just sort of quietly baffled at what happened.
For an event that took months to sell out last year, did the economy really come roaring back and boost the number of people wanting to attend by that much? Or did scalpers manage to buy up enough tickets us regular BRC residents couldn't get any? That doesn't seem very likely either.
Dhamma Seeker has some different cause and effect theories that I also find interesting. He's finding an approx 33% ticket purchase rate which will no doubt affect the ability of many theme camps to, well, exist, and he goes on to ask:
If there isn’t a glut of unwanted tickets available through STEP, then the event truly just hit an inflection point. The culture dynamics will be instantaneously affected.But back to my own ideas, my best guess is that with all the hysteria and vitriol currently directed at people who entered and won the lottery multiple times, those who ended up with extra tickets are laying low.
And with that I say, I'm still in need of two tickets and would be interested in using the secure exchange system if you have some.
I won't hassle you for having entered the lottery more than once. '-)
