    that's happened to me twice and I've refreshed that page so if that's the case I'm about to get heavily deleted for accidental duplicates

    wehaveamap: I was worried about that too - but given the clusterF this morning, they better be waiving that clause.

    alright that's the first time I've made it to the second click (agree to freshtix terms) so in fear of duplication I may be done until I don't have an email at 8 am

    They have to reset the sale for another day or go back to the old system. This is ridiculous

    I just got tickets for both times I made it through when I received application errors. I really hope they just let me cancel one.

    Yeah, I'm a little worried about the duplication thing as well. I got mine eventually after one refresh on the second page and got an e-mail confirmation but my wife's attempt took multiple refreshes after the purchase page and when she finally got a confirmation number she did not get an e-mail. Ughhh. I would have much rather waited in line for 3 hours in the cold then deal with the stress of these ticket sites. Other than BPT, every single one i've ever tried has been a mess.

    Fwiw it's worth my account page is showing nothing so I have to assume that just click submit on the second page does not actually mean you're a lock that it went through.

    I just got tickets to the Garden Lights: Holiday Nights @ The Atlanta Botanical Garden. Not how I was expecting my morning to start.

    The whole reason that this method was chosen was to eliminate lines (that were becoming a burden to the adjoining businesses), eliminate the need for folks traveling a great distance to depart at crazy times and if the weather is bad, minimize peoples exposure to inclement weather. Plain & Simple

    Believe me, no one is more upset by this than Sean. Please be patient and stay tuned to all of your social media spots for updates.

    As someone who wouldn't have been able to do the Mad Taco line this Saturday, I'm still glad the switch was made. Hopefully it gets worked out.

    Just got a confirmation number for the first time. Here's what it looks like to me:

    If you get to the second page where you put in your name and agree to freshtix terms, then click submit...if it times out to a white screen, you're probably not good. However, if you refresh that tab, you may get it (I just did on my second refresh). Probably only useful for a few minutes as I imagine at that point you're requesting a specific ticket and after a certain point it releases it back to the fold.

    Just cuz you make good beer, doesn't mean you are good at business. Worst ticket experience in a long time. Forget it.

    Yes, the failures of an independent ticketing service are all Sean's fault:wink:

    I kid, I kid, I get it's frustrating. And my friends aren't through yet so I can't even say my calmness is from confirmation that I'll be there, because if the car doesn't get one I certainly will not.

    I blame this 100% on freshtix. I think Sean had the right idea. Who would of know freshtix was ran out of some kids basement on old 386 machines.

    Positive input to build a better mousetrap always welcomed. A lot of time and effort was expended to improve the customer experience and I am sure it will continue.

    This. 100%. Sean's idea was great and I hope he isn't disauded by the freshtix's servers. IMHO this is the best way to do this.

    I knew at 6:58 the servers were in trouble. Hopefully if there are duplicate orders they will not shut you out completely. That said I refreshed the 'confirm and receive tickets’ button page peobably 100 times before it went through and I only got one conf # and email. So, I'm not sure how many duplicates got through. And I see people on twitter saying they got tickets but no cofirmation number. Unless they got emails I'm not sure how they know they really got tickets.

    I'll chime in also, no ticket emails being sent out. But confirmation is in my account. I dunno.

    If u have a confirm #, regardless of whether u received an email. its a record in your freshtix account and u can resend the email and print out a receipt. just log into ur freshtix account. Does anyone know how many people per session? It seemed to go quick, considering 98% of the time the site was unaccessible.

    The real victim with the new system is Sombero man, who no longer has to get up at dawn to pass out tickets and direct traffic.

    This is why I liked the lottery system the Alchemist used for their last release, there was no rush to sign up and it made it fair for everyone.

    Shit shows like this have been turning many people I know(and to an extent myselft) from this whole craft beer "scene" if you can call it that. It's making me want to just go into the store and buy a 6'r of Backseat Berner or something readily available. The more the breweries can dial in bottles IPA's and other good beer the less people will need to flock for growler only fills. The more myself and my group start to feel this way and skip on the events, releases, hype, etc the more others have to be doing the same thing. This is the shit that makes is crach once again. Not S.Lawsons fault, just the masses ruining it once again.
