This was the first year we used the WordCamp.org ticketing process.
To try to be as fair as possible, we released the tickets in waves.
Our goal was to give everybody a shot at getting tickets no matter what their work schedule.
For the most part, we reached that egalitarian goal…
There were however, some serious systemic hiccups.
We did not capture the data we need.
In order for us to order the right mix of food — veggie vs. BBQ and to get our Tee shirt order right, we needed our ticket buyers to fill out the form that was part of the ticketing process.
About 50% of our ticketed attendees, either did not have a chance to get that information in before the ticketing plugin timed out; or were so happy to get the ticket bought and paid for they left site before filing out the required information.
We will be contacting these ticket holders Tuesday and Wednesday of this week with an online form to gather the information we need.
The tee shirt order has to go in by Thursday PM so please respond right away.
If you don’t respond to the form, we will declare you a fan of BBQ who wears a size large shirt.
For those who missed out on tickets for this year…
Some of our Sponsors may not use their assigned tickets.
By next week we know if we have a few more tickets to make available for sale.
If we do have a few more tickets available, we will post it on this site, our Facebook page and we will tweet it.
All of the WordCamp Austin 2012 sessions will be recorded and available on WordPress.tv.
