    If a generous person on this board is willing to donate an invite to me can you please PM me. Thanks. :wink:

    Anyone else can post a request for a invite in this thread as well.

    Oh, I would be most happy, and grateful, and indebted too.

    Thanks.

    ok, thats not cool. I was thinking about begging for a gmail invite on the pf, but I thought it would be unethical and one day later you ask and get one.

    You are not indebted to me in any way and it is most likely that I'm indebeted to you, but if you have an extra invite, may I have one?

    Oops, maybe that didn't come out the way I wanted it to. You see, my sentence ended with "too" not "to". Perhaps the "too" belonged after the "I".

    In other words, I too am kindly requesting an invite, and offering my gratitude and indebtedness in return.

    Now why should this be unethical ? Uncool, certainly, but unethical ?

    sorry, in my jumping for joy in thinking that someone on the pf had gmail invites I guess I didn't read your post correctly. I figured it was unethical because this is the pf and its supposed to be used for science and tech, not begging for a gmail account. Sites like gmail swap are for that.

    I could see someone offering a gmail account, but I don't believe you should beg for one here. I'm somewhat of a hypocrite in believing this because I was begging for an account in my previous post.

    :confused: call me ignorant.. but what is this gmail invite and why would you so much want to have it and why do you need to be invited? I just got an invite (without even having to ask) so I'm wondering whether to take it or not.. :biggrin:

    I guess it must be some beta version of the google mail, with the 1 Gb of free space as the bait :) still don't get the invites..

    If I still amnot getting any invites, I will cry like a cat (mew mew mew) whole day...:)
    I partially figure out what that kind of gmail invite is now, so "No, thanks !!!"

    Yeah...\(^.^)/...yeah

    The point of getting the invite is so you can get a good email name. How many times have you tried getting an email with some other service to find out your name has already been taken?

    OK, I'm down on my knees begging for an invite. :biggrin:
     
  17. Jun 22, 2004 #16
    well, I asked the guy who gave me an invite to send some over here. Don't know if he will, but I hope he does.

    The Gmail service ( Googles email service ) is in beta testing. It is not yet open to the public. Therefore the only way to get an account is to be "invited" into the system. Basically Google picked a bunch of people to start with, and then every so often gives them invitations which those people can hand out to their friends and whatnot.

    I want! :)
