Ballot for 50 pairs of tickets

Recommended Posts

Lady luck is shining on me ,  won the national lottery last night so I think i'll be giving this ballot a go too. 

 

I didn't actually win the £170 million I should add, just a lucky dip. Another "look what you could've won" moment after missing sunday

Just on the subject of the thingy...

It doesn't have the time it took for tickets to sell out for 2020 on it.

Whilst I appreciate Mr @Gnomicide you have other things to do in your life, someone at work asked me how long it took to sell out. I confidently told them "check this website out, this tells you everything" & it wasn't there. I'd bigged the thingy up as well.

Please can this be updated? 

Coach sale - 27 Mins

General sale - 34 Mins

Thanks.

My laptop's playing up a bit and using the phone ap is a pain on the arse but I should be on it tomorrow.

Changing to a ballot system just completely takes away from experience of T-day. The work and organisation that goes in to it and the determination and willing to secure a ticket. The only thing that I was missing was war paint on Sunday morning.

I’d be happy for there to be a ballot going forward but for no more than about 5k tickets.

Anymore then it’s a victory for the lazy brainless entitled Idiots who think that switching on their computer automatically qualifies them for a ticket.

They still won’t get a ticket and will in fact be even less likely to.

I thought that your court case resulted in 'those' photos being made the subject of a destruction order?

I think I've realized what their thought process is with this ballot. 

The issue is they have 2.4 million registrations, people with multiple connections, and actually have no way to calculate how much interest their is in the festival. 

Using this ballot you get people with active registrations who just failed entering for tickets. They'd be able to gauge how many people are actually trying this year based on how many people enter the ballot. Sure there will be some loss in numbers but I imagine every person who wants to be there is going to be entering.

Correct. You still have to pay for them.

Despite that I dare say people will be delirious to be told they had to pay for them when picked out.

Fair play, I'd still bite an Eavii hand off for a ticket. Anyway, I'm in the draw, roll on Nov. 4th!

I don't think this one will be a factor unless they have the option to rent the entire county of Somerset.

I'm not having any of you filthy crusties camping in my garden.....room for the Brothers Bar though 👍

is it possible that they can do something in terms of image searches on the photos  (for example google do reverse image searches)  to lessen duplicate registrations 

Surely you could just register with slightly different photos....enough to still look like you but dissimilar enough to pass the checks.

To be fair, not had to make a choice. #3 in our group wasn’t fully into going so she willingly took the short straw

What'll be an even bigger shitter is if she's the one that wins the ballot! 

Not that she will, of course. All 50 winners are going to be eFests members.

Phew! 

That would have made for a much less traumatic book/film.
