I think everyone realises it's first come first served, how that is defined would appear to be dependent on a person's self-interest.

The venue rule is very silly and, like it or not, is being ignored by hundreds of people. And quite right too imo.

You've said you're going to ignore this queue if the people aren't in the official spot at the officially appointed hour. If people with wristbands come back much later like 8am or whatever then fair enough. If it's earlier like 6:05am then I think you may need to shore up your arguments for grabbing their spot - or consider stepping back and letting them in. (You'd still get into the pit anyway.)

Still all quiet on the western front. Hopefully there's an armistice, this wee discussion is completely pointless, and everyone is having tea and cake and making new friends.

Not sure but I think it's more like 2000. Many people who queue overnight do it to grab the outer rail, which is a phenomenal spot.

In GA as we speak... arrived at 5 am and there were two lines claiming to have the first dibs. Securityeventually came and set up the rope and basically ignored the wristband line. not sure if they'll honor that or the marker numbers line as more and more people are coming now.
