I decided to log into gmail and see if I could reproduce this problem. (Sorry Fox, working fine for me…)
I just noticed that I have 50 invites to give away – (well actually 200, since I have 4 gmail addresses)
I get the reasoning behind the invites, (a way to ramp up the user-base for testing in a slow, meterable way to avoid flooding the system while still in development – oh yeah and a great way to generate word-of-mouth marketing/hype…) but what am I going to do with 200 invites? At this point, all my friends and family that want a gmail account has one.When is Gmail going to exit beta, or even just open up registration to anyone that wants an account?
I’m just wondering…

As I understand it, they heavily increased the amount of invites to decrease the amount of ebaying invites.
ebaying invites? I usually just give mine away…
Give them away? I wish I could find people who WANT them!
I use this site to give them away: http://isnoop.net/gmailomatic.php, but with the recent increase of Gmail invites, it looks like they’ve got more than they can give away as well….
