I am giving away approximately (10) Gmail accounts to the first people who post here whom I deem worthy of giving it to.

First preference will be give to:

1. People who deserve it.

2. People who want it really bad.

3. People who have helped me out in the past.

For those who dont know, Gmail is the free webmail service from the folks at Google who are giving away 1Gb of mail storage with the account.

To be chosen, you must post here with a simple statement on why you want it. As soon as I get more invites I will give them away.

Sorry for making it sound like something really special, I was just tired of everyone else doing all of the other cool sounding giveaways


****edit to add a buttload of invites****

how long after you create an account until they give you invites?
Link Posted: 8/28/2004 5:52:44 PM EST
it took me almost a month to get invites.

i think they put a moratorium on them for a while when a-holes started selling them on e-gay.



okay, im going to let this run for 24 hours to build suspense and then i will contact the winner for his/her email to send the invite to.

i also sent myself a few of the invites so i could "grow a gmail garden" so to speak and give out even more invites as well as register cool gmail names.

mini thread hijack here, but WTH is the deal with gmail anyway?
I've seen alot of posts on various forums lately regarding gmail invites, but nobody ever talks about what the goddamned things are good for.

what is so special about them?

Yes I know google is my friend, but im lazy.

google is your friend in this case, :)

gmail invites are referrals to the invitation only beta of the Gmail service whic offers an awesome interface for webmail and offers one Gb of mail storage.

when the invites first came out, some retards were paying $500 for them on epay. i bought mine for a dollar and have been waiting ever since to get invites in my inbox to give out to other folks.

google intended this to be a good way of spreading the news around and yet at the same time limiting its userbase while the thing is still in beta testing.

one Gb will hold a shitload of spam and/or pr0n attachments from your friends.

I did a test last night.

After posting in this thread I sent an email to my gmail account from my ISP account asking "do you have an Gmail invitations? I'd like to create a Gmail account".


This morning I had six invitations to give away. I've had my account for six days.
Link Posted: 8/29/2004 5:39:48 AM EST
I want this Gmail account...

so I can turn around and sell it on ebay for quite the profit!

otherwise, I don't see a need for it.

If G-mail has anything to do with the G-spot,l I WANT IT!!!

maybe it's coming out of beta soon so they're upping the number of "testers" by a big jump?

who knows.
Link Posted: 8/29/2004 5:57:18 AM EST
or maybe you just cracked the code to getting the invites?

its great anyway even if its coming out of beta since you can reserve the email name that you want before all the other folks snatch it up.
Link Posted: 8/29/2004 6:06:57 AM EST
invites sent :)
Link Posted: 8/29/2004 6:17:34 AM EST
Cool thanks man!
Link Posted: 8/30/2004 5:02:40 PM EST
anyone else?
Link Posted: 8/30/2004 5:17:14 PM EST
ColinJay,

I could use a GMail account pretty badly, I have/had a hotmail account but they are about to try and rebill me 29 bucks for something Gmail is giving away right now. That's 30 bucks I could use to fix my busted DPMS AR!

If you've got another one, I could really use it, thanks ColinJay!

surely the admins of this great site could use a Gmail account?

PM sent...

i could use an account for the simple reason, that DU and Goonsnet have found all my troll accounts.
Link Posted: 8/30/2004 10:04:53 PM EST
At least one invite sent to ETH ('Twas the least I could do for someone who singlehandedly accounts for a SIGNIFICANT amount of the posts here)

Oh, and ETH: I'm now convinced you're on arfcom 24/7
Link Posted: 8/31/2004 12:46:37 AM EST
If you have an extra I could sure use one.

Thx
