The Great Gmail Giveout

Okay, so basically, I just now realized I have like... 49 Gmail invites, and I want to get rid of them.

If you somehow don't have Gmail yet, post here and I'll PM or Email you, assuming you already have an email to send stuff to linked to.

    Eh, why not. I'm one of the few without Gmail, might as well get one.

    Thank you.

    I have hundreds of invites. Gmail is AWESOME. If you don't have one, you don't know what you're missing. If OtakuD00D runs out or just isn't around to give one out, PM me.

    Awesome! Looks like anyone with gmail invites sitting around can pitch in then.

    I made a google account specifically so I could use gmail and I learn about that invite bullshit and now I don't even remember my login info.

    So, I don't even care anymore.

    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow. He won't leave his inn or his memories, so there he waits....in ambush....

    I remember when Alpha made that awesome script on the forums to automate the handout of Gmail invites.

    Suprisingly, they no longer auto-regenerate your invites.

    ... I don't think you need invites or even that cellphone number text message thing anymore.

    Can I sign up without the invitation code? Or without a mobile phone?
    You need to receive and enter a special invitation code in order to create an account. Currently, we are only sending these codes as text messages to mobile phones. So you will need to have a mobile phone with text message capabilities (most phones have this) and the invitation code itself.

    One of the reasons we are offering this new way to sign up for Gmail is to help protect our users and combat abuse. Spam and abuse protection are two things we take very seriously, and our users have been very happy with the small amount of spam they've received in their Gmail accounts. We take many measures to ensure that spammers have a difficult time sending their spam messages, getting these messages delivered, or even obtaining a Gmail account (spammers will often use many different accounts to send spam). Sending invitation codes to mobile phones via SMS is one way to address this, as the number of accounts per phone number can be limited.

    If you want to open an account a different way, you may want to ask a friend with a mobile phone to receive an invitation code for you or to ask someone you know who already has a Gmail account to email you an invitation.

    Gmail is still in beta.

    There's no way 150+ people will need one, but just in case, PM me as well if you'd like one. It's a very slick service. My favorite email client, browser based or not.

    I know it's gone in some countries, but last I checked you still had to get an invite or do the cellphone thing in the US. In any case if you want an invite make sure you give your email address to someone offering them.

    I can also give out invites.

    P.S: Gmail is awesome and it's totally worth switching away from anything else to use it.

    Profile -> Signature Settings -> Hide signatures always. Then you don't have to read this worthless text anymore.

    Actually, in Australia and New Zealand, you no longer need to do any of the above methods, there's a sign up link right on the page.

    If you know anyone with a Gmail account they should have 100 invites (it's been like this for over a year). I once made like, 20 alternate Gmail accounts (for an online game I was playing) and the next day I had 100 invites again.

    Yeah, I've got a hundred just sitting. I figured anybody who wanted a Gmail account would just do the whole text message thing to get one (which is how I got mine).

    I've found Gmail to be shit-hot just because it seems to be the only "major" free webmail account that offers POP/SMTP access without an extra charge. Hence the reason I didn't know I had invites; I've checked mine exclusively with Thunderbird for like a year.

    I easily switched completely to Gmail the day after Hotmail deleted 6 years worth of emails.

    Bastards.


    Also, searching email is great. I can just pull up my website/program registrations using it.

    I have a neat Calvin and Hobbes reference as an alternate email address. I was surprised I was the first person to get it.

    That's about all I have to add.

    Edit: Holy crap, I haven't checked it in months and it turns out I have like 124 messages from Circuit City. What the hell could they have wanted me to buy so badly?

    Add my name to the 'have invites, will give' list. Even although I have an account, I never use it. Don't see what all the fuss is about personally, but I guess some people have a use for it.

    PS. If you want an invite, you NEED TO PM SOMEONE YOUR CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS. It doesn't work by us calling Google McGoogleston and saying "Hey Mr. Googleston, can you give this dude from the penis arcade forums an email address?"
