7/19/2011 15:02:0226-30Personal QuestYesNoMusical Variety, MealsGetting to experience participation in the kind of community that I wish default society was patterned after; being a participant in the formation of a new consciousness; getting laid with a super hottie; how many other polyamorous people attend!That it ended. Ha! Really though, the only thing that felt inconsistent with the awesomeness of Tfus was the occasional surprisingly unfriendly person. VERY occasional. Usually people in well-established theme camps. Also, while I enjoy dubstep and house muic (yay Boom and PLF!), it would be nice if one of the Valhalla dj camps would play other sorts of danceable music. Like, how about a rap hour? Or a swing hour? Or a Latin hour? Oh and I almost forgot: the lack of racial and economic diversity is bothersome, but nobody's fault I suppose.5434
7/19/2011 15:02:2026-30CommunityYesNoInteractive Theme Camps, Spiritual Presence/Yoga, Volunteering/ParticipationGreater participation on the part of individuals.Gross, exploitative men who were clearly there for titties. I'd feel more comfortable if there was a less sexually exploitative culture. Also, too many cameras. ... and... A lot of trash.

It was a real turn off. It would be nice for them to appreciate all that help, which would prevent people from NOT volunteering because they don't want to the guilt trip. It's the only time at transformus where I felt people were judging me.... and I DID VOLUNTEER!5442

So it was my first year also, so it was mix of taking it easy and not planning well. NoFire Art/Performance, Musical Variety, Volunteering/ParticipationYes, the website is mostly inaccessible from iPads and other mobile devices that don't support the scrolling in frames. I love the content and the effort to get info online, but you may consider moving to a wordpress theme like the folks at Element 11 use (the Utah regional burn).Introducing friends who were virgins to the burn experience.Having to help friends leave early because they got ill.545
7/19/2011 18:48:2336-40CommunityYesYesVolunteering/ParticipationNo, but if possible a mobile version would rock since I spend most of my internet time on my phone...Rejoining with my inner-self, and remembering those people who are important to me.The security guard who stood directly in front of us for the entire temple burn. I suggest assigning each guard a section of the perimiter to watch and have them slowly pace that 10 feet or so. This would mean they didn't block any one group for the entire time but could still make sure everyone is safe.5554
