    I almost threw my computer across the room. I was about to set the god damn internet on fire. But I got a Wednesday ticket at 10:51. Keep trying, I guess.

    Maybe the proceeds from ticket sales can go to building a site that works.....

    Somehow got a ticket for Wednesday, My wife just kept on reloading the screen and I made it before the timeout period. I'll count myself as lucky.

    Anyone else notice that if you purchased a ticket for Day #4, it says 'Day #4' on the top of the ticket, but at the bottom it says '(KBS Day #3 - 3 /)' followed by a series of numbers and letters?

    What a crap show. Was only able to get tickets for me, my brother, my sister, my mom, my dad, my best friend, and my girlfriend. Wasn't even able to get the cousins.

    from the comments section, definition of fickle:

    "Guys, just keep trying to refresh. I just got a ticket for myself, and my buddy managed to get his finally. It's bullshit and an utter joke that we've had to deal with this, but I managed to get what I needed."

    Neither my email or the BPT ticket page says anything besides Day #4 and Saturday, the day I got a ticket for.

    Look at the bottom of your ticket - everyone I talked to is showing the same thing. Day #4 on the top of the page (the .pdf file) and Day #3 on bottom...

    Weird, my day #3 tickets also note Day #2-3 on the bottom.
    I'm sure I'm good for Friday, not Thurs and Fri.
