    Brandon they seem to have "corrected" the workaround we were using to invite people but I have a running list for as soon as they open invites again and you're on it now. This goes for anyone else on here as well. Of course, in the future people can just email me directly so we don't end up with a spammy request thread that is likely to get closed.

    The "workaround" isn't actually a workaround, they mean for it to work every time. They're not throttling on invitations, they're throttling on accepting invitations. They open and close the tap based on when you accept, not based on when you're invited. So if you have an email from Google+, just keep trying to get in. It's been on and off pretty frequently over the past few days.

    Hm, that's odd because the last 3-4 times I tried it the recipients never even received the email.

    If anyone has an invite or can get me in through the workaround I'd appreciate it

    Damn, google+ sounds nice. I hope they'll leave beta soon so I can un-facebook.

    I too would like to be invited once invites are available, if any of you'd be so very kind.

    So it's Facebook without the crappy Farmville apps and the ability to filter what I post to specific people so that my family doesn't discover how much of a freak I am?

    Well shit, sign me up! jaredk91939 at gmail, if anyone would be so kind.

    chrisanthropic: some of the people I mailed needed several hours to receive their mail. Some seem not to receive it at all. It appears to be a quite random thing.

    Thats me. Been loving it so far, I'm gonna go through the thread later adding Whitechapel peeps. Love to try out a hangout some time.

    I just tried to send out another email attempting to invite everyone on here who asked for one. I'll try again in a few hours too if this batch doesn't work.

    As far as Google+ itself, I'm loving it. I guess part of it is how limited my feed is right now so I'm actually interested in most of what pops up. Which reminds me - one of the best features isn't just sharing stuff based on your circles, but also filtering your news/updates based on your circles. Awesome!

    Thanks to Chrisanthropic and Calliope den Ouden for sharing a post with me on google+

    I tried Chris's link first, and it sent me to the closed sign ups page, twice, but Calliope's link sent me to a page that was accepting my details. Maybe Chris's link would have worked if I had tried it the third time, or perhaps it's based on the number of users that join through your links.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    One of the terms of signing up caught my attention. When you link google+ to picasa web albums it says that if you share a photo with someone that they can share it with anyone they want after that. I thought that was a bit odd. Even on facebook if you publish an album, only your friends can see it and - as far as I know - can't reshare the photos to their friends (at least not without downloading and reuploading the photos)

    Thanks to Chrisanthropic and Calliope den Ouden for the invites - I never usually get invited to anything! ;-)

    I wish we had all stayed on myspace forever
    • CommentTimeJul 6th 2011
    Remember when you could crack into a person's myspace by changing the username in a specific URL?

    That was truly a golden time.

    i never got the email from chrisanthropic's generous invite, but i have the google+ app on my android, and whenever i'd try logging in on that, it would give me an error, until now, where it logged me in and let me know of his invite afterwards, so if you've got an android phone and someone has tried adding you, try to log in through the app.

    Lifehacker gave an interesting way to get people in, in case anyone's interested.

    Weird. Brian invited me but the email hasn't yet shown up, however, I thought I'd better nip over there and put my name on the list for an invite too (just to cover all the angles) and I got straight in.
