I'm not saying its right...but I mean. If you sold them then other people would be able to go..while they might not have had the change/oppirtunity to get tickets at all before.
There are plenty of people looking for tickets without having to sell them.

I was just reading a post on facebook page regarding tickets for general conference. It was just asking if anyone knew how they could get tickets for a conference session. It's difficult to get them when you live in Utah.
Anyway...one person posted that they purchased theirs on E-bay. Okay, I will admit that I started seeing a bit of red covering my eyes. I guess it's just upsetting me that someone would use free tickets to see conference as a way to make money.
Quick answer, it sucks.

You could advertise on Craigs List and offer them for free. It's so hard to get tickets here in Utah. Wards get such a limited amount and they are gone so quickly. I have tried so many times and can never get them.
Craigslist is fine for local listings, but since it's fairly city-centric, it's not so great at hitting a wide audience.... so even if they did list them on CL, there's a high probability that you would never know about them since they would be in a different city.

My ward got tickets for the Young Women's conference and since my daughter and I were some of the last to ask for them we didn't get them. Then that day I heard mother's saying about how much of a hastle it was to go and that they weren't going to take their daughter that evening. Unfortunately, it was too late for my daughter and I to go...AAARRRRRRrrrrrggggghhhh...
Before my son's mission we went and stayed in line hoping to get in and there were only 4 people in front of us when they closed the doors. I had really hoped that he would have the opportunity to see a living prophet before he went...but we too live in Utah so don't get much opportunity. One of my best friends will go this year but it is because her husband was just put into the bishopric. Tickets seldom trickle down to the regular members where it isn't an expensive trip in time or money for the membership to get there.
All the tickets for conference are given out. There is a priority established for the tickets. The priority is:
First to Stake presidency, high councilors, bishoprics (and wives) that live outside SLC area. The greater the distance the higher the priority.
Second to Temple recommend holders that live outside of SLC area. Again the greater the distance the higher the priority.
Third to dignitaries (in governments, media and other religions).
Forth to selected stakes where members are likely to attend. These tickets are passed through stake-presidents and bishops.
In addition the day of conference any no shows will be replaced during the last minutes from a number of interested parties waiting - the length of the wait given the highest priority. Though I suspect other factors may play - for example someone that is not properly clad or ill behaved or such may be deselected.
I am not sure which shows the greater lack of discretion, poor judgement and outright - dare I say stupidity? The person that sells their tickets thinking to gain a lucrative advantage or the fool that has purchased them.

lol, ok, so he was scalping GC tix, not simply trying to get rid of them- that's low.
Nice to see you again, marshac. Avatar-wise, I mean.
