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!

    Hmm. Half an hour past the time the BBC reported. I think we can call bullshit on their story :P

    Edit: This seems to be one of team google wave agreeing that it'll happen tomorrow morningish.

    If there are any invites going, I'm down to be on the conga line.

    I have been horribly excited about this for ages.

    I'll take an invite, if they exist and anyone has an extra when they come out.

    Yah, OK; whilst it's fun seeing the thread at the top of the forum all the time, I'd rather not fill it up with "me too"s: Anyone with invites, PM me and anyone wanting an invite PM me with the address you want the invite sent to and I can keep a tally in the OP, first come first served style, OK?

    And everyone who gets an invite ought to give at least one back if they themselves get invites with their account, but you guys already knew that.

    [noparse]OP UPDATED:[/noparse]
    Instructions are there, along with the list of applicants. I have added everyone who asked in the thread as well, but I don't have e-mil addresses for you yet, so please send me them so you can actually get the invite you want.

    Sounds like invites are probably not going to be going out for several more hours -- the main Wave staff is based out of Sydney and (understandably) want to be awake when the influx of new users come in. (It's currently ~4:30 AM down there.)

    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.

    Yeah, I know, but it's the first one on there, and the username/etc about that account don't look especially trustworthy unless you can see the post history.

    Good luck everyone!

    Yeah, they gave no timetable for these invites. I imagine any time in the next nine hours is fair game.

    Supposedly everyone gets 8 invites, so that ends up being 800,000. With gmail, every account made with an invite got half, so we'll say 4. That's 800,000*4, or 3,200,000 for a total of 4,100,000.

    I second this if possible. I am kinda sad I didn't get invited though. I've been through gmail since the early stages and signed up for wave early on (I thought)

    All the invites aren't out yet. It sounds like it's going to take them all day, so if you haven't gotten one yet, don't assume you didn't make the cut.

    It almost seems like it was designed for playing tabletop games with friends over the internet.

    For that, and many other reasons, I cannot wait for Wave.

    I just saw this thread, first I've ever heard of Google Wave, and watched the whole video.

    Holy shit, please add me to the invite beggars list. I can give all but one of my invites back to PA people, I only have one friend interested in it.

    From looking at twitter there seem to be invites out there, but it's not really a hard confirmation and could just be people attention whoring.
