The board is a convoluted miss mash becasue someone finds it necessary to start brand new threads full of questions that really shouldn't even have to be answered and then people start answering them and then the thread gets hijacked by someone being a total smart ass fuck (me in this instance).
Let's look back at the original questions:
How small are campsites? Unless you plan on bringing 8 yurts does it really matter? Obviously large enough to allow for thousands of people to camp in for the past, oh I don't know, seven years.
How long are lines? It's a music fest. There are thousands of people. You've been to multiple other larger music fests. There will be lines, some long and some small.
Can you sneak in nice cameras? Answered on page 1 of the FAQ thread.
How hard is it to get from stage to stage? If you can walk, not that hard. If you can't, still not that hard with some help.
Any tips? Open ended questions that means the author expects a slew of random answers about anything and everything (See the entire board).
With that being said...fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you're cool (points at Rusty), fuck you I'm out!!!
Get in relatively early ( if possible) and lay down a blanket somewhere sweet on the hill. From my experience, it will be your spot the whole day. You can fuck off to the other stages and come back to a sweet spot when you want it. To the other boarders: Is this a thing? Or like, have I just been extremely lucky all these years with people respecting my blanket?.
I talk about this all the time, but this is our routine at Sasquatch: get in super early (one of us, usually me because fuck me), put a blanket or two down on the terraced part of the hill, and that's the HQ for the day. It's seriously awesome, nobody takes your stuff, you make friends with the people around you (usually pregnant wildhorse campers) and they watch your shit when you leave. We've left our blankets and packs for hours safely.
Then we usually grab all our shit before the headliner and head down to the mainstage, or over to the late night act, and put it in a pile somewhere else. And people come visit us all day. I held hands with some fucked up girl tripping super hard who was a friend of a friend while she told me how much she loves Game of Thrones, and she took a nap on the blanket and then left without a trace. Goldbeard visited us at the blanket multiple times. We bought him chcken strips and water because he was dead and he gave us weed toffies.

Like, I know there's going to be a rash of redundant threads every single year asking the same 'first timer questions', but come on. Don't tell me that you 'looked everywhere' for answers to these questions when I fucking know for a fact that every single one of those questions has been answered ad infinitum before every year's fest.
CHUD nailed it -- the answers wouldn't be nearly as hard to find if the questions weren't asked so damn often.
It doesn't help that every goddamn thread turn into a big goddamn circle jerk. Do you really expect anyone to sift through pages upon pages of utterly useless inane bullshit and inside jokes, just to find a few answers about camping. Get fucking real.
Also: the inane bullshit and inside jokes are the primary reason for this board to exist. Unless and until this board is officially recognized and/or subsidized, I propose that we all stop pretending that isn't the case.
