Gmail invites, round 4


#1

Another big whack of invites.

I have 16 invites to give away. E-mail me, miguelb at geemail dot com (spell it right!)


#2

yeah spell it right not wrong like me. … …


#3

Wow, believe it or not, all my 16 invites are now gone.

If anybody has more, post here.

I received e-mails from people I didn’t even think would read HTMF, including one guy (you know who you are), who just happened by because of a sticker.


#4

Those stickers rock. I tried to get my mom to put it on the back of our van, but she siad the Canucks stickers were enough.


#5

aww i want some more stickers :neutral_face:


#6

How long do we have to have an account for them to give us invites?


#7

The Google l33t ranking system determines whether or not you deserve invites, and how many you deserve.

Actually, I have no idea. I have two gmail accounts, and I’ve maybe given out 30 invites so far. Other peole have had gmail accounts much longer and have never had invites.


#8

Hmm… must go by the amount of traffic through your account.

Another question though, can I IMAP this? : )


#9

I don’t think it’s based on the traffic. It might be random.

Speaking of…

I now have another 12 invites. So anybody who STILL doesn’t have a gmail account, you can e-mail miguelb at geeemail (spell it gmail.com)


#10

Why would you want to imap this ?

This gmail looks to simple and hardly any options or any thing… Pretty basic…


#11

What? What kind of options? It’s a web-based mail, dude. Which one are you comparing it to?


#12

it’s just so plain. i hate how it doesnt go back to inbox when you send a message… i hate how i cant change the theme. : O ) its just so white…


#13

Yeah, you must hate google too, it’s so plain. MSN is sooo much better.


#14

no no i hate msn i love google… im just used to lots of tool bars in my email so i can sort and creat rules and stuff… that is all. once i was hooked on MAIL


#15

Yeah, that’s the point. Compare it to MSN Hotmail, with all the flashing and beeping and annoying things. It’s e-mail. Period.

It does, just not in Safari. It’s a beta, they just added Safari support a few days ago. It works much nicer in Camino or Firefox.

Yeah, you can’t change the theme in Hotmail either.

#17

I have 4 invites to give away. hoshkiw at gmail dot com.


#18

holy shit, i just got 6 fricken invites WOOO


#19

I posted on orkut (friends and friends of friends), and got about 40 requests.

Filled them all!

I think the more invites you send, the more you receive. I’ve been getting them in batches of 6, sometimes 3 or 4 times a day.


#20

I have still failed to receive any invites! :frowning: What is wrong with me!
