Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Google Wave] OPEN TO ALL: invites no longer necessary!

    I don't even think I know 28 people who'd want one...

    I think I've been given 50-60 in total. Only 10 went to friends. I need more tech-savvy friends.

    So I have one of those fancy insta-invites from Google that immediately comes with 20 invites to hand out.

    First one to quote this gets it.

    Speaking of invites; I think it's time to close up shop on the conga line.
    In the last few days I've received dozens of PMs with offers of invites and nary a one with an address to invite. I guess that after the first three hundred or so, we appear to have gotten to the chunk of PA that cares already.

    My friend signed up for the Wave preview months ago (like I), got into Wave another way, then Google emailed him an invite based the old signup. He gave me that link and it came with 20 invites. Now I've received the same email he did.

    I mean, I don't know for sure, but everything I've seen says when Google invites you directly you get 20 invites off the bat.

    And if you want it, it's yours.

    No, I'm good; I got an invite thread of my own already. I think this also happened to another one of the posters here before, too.

    In-line images in waves. How?

  • Zetetic ElenchZetetic Elench Registered User
    edited November 2009
    Googling reveals that in-lines kinda sorta don't work. There is a small number of people who claim that clicking the arrow in the top-right of an image attachment expands it to full inline, but that doesn't seem to work for me and about a bajillion other users.

    Right now, the only workarounds are either 1) use a bot which automagically turns all image attachments into inlines, of which there seem of be a couple, or 2) install this HTML gadget and use the <img src="xxxxxx"> tag.

    Number two is probably how I'll do it when I need to, but the downside is that whatever image you want has to already be on the web somewhere; imageshack.us or elsewhere, for example.

    This is the behaviour I observe, for what little it's worth.

    What if this weren't a rhetorical question?

    Interesting. I wonder if it's related to image size? Or file type, or some other more arcane variable.

    I've been trying with small png files and it seems to be working actually. These are tiny pictures though, both file size and dimensions.

    Is editing big waves pretty slow for everyone else?

    I could use an invite. If any of you people with a ton of invites would PM one to me, I'd appreciate it.

    OK, I got an invite now, so I'm set. If anybody else needs one you can now ask me or any of the other people who now have plenty of invites.

    So are people actually using this productively yet? I was excited to get in... so far it's slow as hell on waves with a couple hundred posts (and the scroll bar doesn't seem to work, which is deadly if I just want to see the newest posts), and it loves to crash... goodbye public waves.

    In private waves the advantages are few over email, and the lack of documentation means I wouldn't try to, say, use it with my parents for trip planning any time soon.

    Also, the default UI layout is atrocious - the wave itself takes up maybe 40% of the screen and is unreadable in a large group conversation. I hate that you can't get rid of the images in the middle panel, they waste a huge amount of space.

    So far I have seen wave effectively used by a group to share music files (not in this forum, nor have I participated...) just because it's unmoderated. That's pretty much it.

    The biggest draw back I'm finding is my netbook hates waves. It can handle the smaller ones but if i try to browse any of the larger waves, I get destroyed.

    I've got a small crew currently using this to do some design docs on a new game idea. It seems to be working aight, but we had to setup some ground rules for adding new posts and editing old ones.

    So far for a beta it's been decent, but we've got a ways to go.

    When the rest of my group members get my invites, I might try to use it for coordinating parts of our Ars Magica game (i.e. the long term covenant events, like who's reading which book and who's taking which type of vis out of covenant stores). I think it might help organize the bookkeeping.

    Thanks, guys, I'm in now. I've got invites, too, but judging by the OP I guess we're pretty much out of people who want in. Still, feel free to send me a PM if you want an invite.

    Heh. And I was just going to come in here and talk about how I had an awesome time last night actually using Wave with my mom and sister to go over plans for our upcoming vacation. :P

    My mom and sister both sent me waves basically going "fine, I joined, how do I use this?" at about 10:30 last night, and by 12:30 we had made a bunch of decisions and put together a vacation timeline wave with our updated schedules, color-coded by person (though to be fair I had cribbed the timeline initially from an old Word doc).

    It was amusing to have Massachusetts as part of our country, but now, of course, like so much of the coastal nation, it no longer qualifies as America.

    It would also help if it didn't eat over half my posts.

    Can't help you on the folders or on the message devouring, but the other two are there. Apparently fullsize inline images are causing some people problems (see earlier), but take a look at Dicebot (or any other similar robot, such as, apparently, RandomLee).
