Myschievia 2019 We Are Star Stuff
UPDATE ON THE TICKET SITUATION:
Yesterday at noon, when tickets went live, most of you received an error message that your credit card was unable to be processed. This was due to the high volume of transactions at that time. (And yes, we had notified the credit card processor in advance). The volume of transactions caused the credit card processor's fraud protections to flag ALL of the transactions for manual review. ALL transactions were captured and flagged, including each of the multiple attempts many people made. The result was a couple thousand individual transactions that needed to be manually verified by the LLC.
Our process to keep things fair was to close the sale to prevent more duplicates and sort the transactions by name so we could individually delete all multiple attempts after a person's initial attempt. This took many, many hours. We appreciate everyone's patience as we worked through this. The end result was some 1,400 individual transactions after duplicates were deleted.
Our next step was to sort the transactions again by time stamp and manually approve those transactions until we reached our predetermined cap. We reached this cap at approximately 12:04 PM yesterday. It's no wonder we triggered the velocity detectors! Yes, you read that right. We sold out in 4 minutes. There will be no more tickets available at this time. We apologize for any inconveniences.
So what next? Many of you will notice your credit card transactions being processed. We are still having an issue with the credit card processor and Brown Paper Tickets communicating, so even though your card processes, you may not receive a confirmation email from BPT right away. We are working with BPT to resolve this as quickly as possible, even if we have to manually send out confirmation emails. We are also having to go through and decline the pending transactions that did not make the cut off for when tickets sold out.
So how will you know if you got a ticket? Your card should process this weekend, but whether you see that depends on your bank and how they process. We currently plan to have the order confirmation emails sent out over the next few days.
We plan to send an official email out as soon as this last piece is resolved with all of this information as well. We just did not want to bombard people's inboxes with multiple emails so we are waiting until all issues have been resolved.
We greatly appreciate your patience and support as we have worked through these issues. Hail Sagan and may Neil deGrasse Tyson be with you.
Myschievia, the North Texas regional burn, is put on by the North Texas Burners (NTXB). We're a community of artists and eccentrics representing Dallas, Fort Worth, Denton, and surrounding locations. So we formed an LLC, found a willing host, and launched Myschievia 1, "Trial by Fire" in 2005. And y'all must have liked it, because we haven't stopped since!
This year's event will begin on Thursday, October 10th at 12pm to Monday, October 14th at 12pm, and the theme chosen by popular vote is We Are Star Stuff.
So what *is* Myschievia? It is a temporary community that is a forum for creativity and artistic self-expression. There are no spectators, no commerce permitted, and the event is run entirely by volunteers. This is the only venue for tickets; none are sold at the gate. Please register with your full, legal name, as a government ID will be required to enter the event. Also, be sure to read the Survival Guide so you know what you're getting into. You'll be quizzed about it upon entry!
