Katelyn W started this petition to Madison House Presents and Insomniac Events and

Every year, an increasing rate of bots and scalpers buy a large number of tickets at the start of the sale to resell. This causes many new and returning customers to miss out on the chance to buy a ticket during the sale. These tickets are listed immediately to Stub Hub with a huge increase in price and profit potential, hurting the chances of the Electric Forest community to go to the place they call home. This is a common issue across many other venues and some have actually taken action for their community to try to change the way tickets are sold. 

Here's an example of an artist changing the way to sell tickets to reduce the number of bots/scalpers: https://business.ticketmaster.com/blog/taylor-swift-ticketmaster-verified-fan/

This is just an example, but a good place to start for ideas on how to change this moving forward. In the future, we'd like to see some type of preventative measure to decrease the chances of bots stealing up all the tickets to resell for an undeserved profit, and increase the chance for actual festival-goers to get their tickets.
