i understand the frustration of the ticket system not working properly, but if this was a random lottery, it is relatively fair.

 

let's say they allocated 1/3rd of the tickets to the presale. what happens when you try and sell 500 tickets to 10,000 people who want them? 9500 really pissed off people who think it's all rigged. :LOL:

 

(arbitrary numbers to represent that demand is greater than supply here)

 

Isn't it better for people to think that it's rigged than for it to actually be rigged?

Oh I do get that demand far exceeds supply, but IF it was a random lottery with the codes (and it probably wasn't) then they should state that up front before the pre-sale starts.

Agreed, however I sense people are more annoyed that the system couldn't handle the job than that not everyone would be able to get a ticket. :)

Yeah but it's not fair to tell people here is your unique code for the Presale and then have the code not work. If you miss out and it's sold out that's fine but you shouldn't be given a code just to have it not work, that's basically not even being given a shot at tickets.

Oh I will deff. I just really hope they don't give me shit.

 

I would think as long as you have the card and your ID and you and you mom have the same last name it should be fine. You could always call in advance just to get peace of mine.

I think the most annoying part is that some people with access codes that worked didnt even have options to select tickets on the main ticketweb page.

This is my problem. Does anyone have a code that did work? Please help, have been going since 9 AM. I will be sure to pay it forward.

Me too but I also made sure to PDF/print the website confirmation that it went through.

 

Oh, that's smart. I only took a screencap. :/

What's annoying about that open code floating around is it probably gave a bunch of people without codes in the first place access to tickets.

so with one of the codes posted here i get verified but no ticket selection. i try with IE and that is just spinning out of control with no response. I guess it likes Firefox better for rejections. Very disappointed on the codes not working as intended.

You might want to take a photo copy of your mom's ID with you in case.

Yeah, I'll bring the printout, card, and my ID. I'll probably email the venue tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

Has anyone else not gotten an email confirm yet?

Keep trying guys, I just managed to get a pair of tickets using the floating code after the one that was issued to me was rejected.

And seriously, how is it that if one code works that there are other codes that do not work? If there are tickets there are tickets, why would a given code matter? It's all General admission at Webster Hall, anyhow. And if a code works, how does it work if you can't select a ticket. End of rant. :rolleyes:

JUST GOT TICKETS!!!!!!

 

Been trying since 9 with my code, with the floating code since about 9:45. Was about to give up. I figured I'd give it one fresh start, so I completely shut down my browser, reopened it, navigated to the page, and entered the floating code. The code had been verified for the past 1000 tries but showed no tickets. However this time, tickets popped up and I got 2. This happened 5 minutes ago I just finished paying.

 

tl;dr, Close your browser, reopen, and try the floating code! Don't give up, I might just be lucky but there is still hope.
