EDIT: Thanks for the invite, itiniti!

Hey, orkut! I just joined the community to learn more about it. I've been on a Google service testing binge lately and so far I like everything they have. It's a pretty tight set of services, I think, and I like how it's all slowly and progressively pulled together. I really hate MySpace but everyone I know is on it, as brutal as it is to look at the MySpace pages.

After reading the info page for the community I wasn't going to ask for an invite...bbbuuuutttt I see a lot of people are and no one seems to mind. Sorry if my assumption is incorrect.

But if someone wouldn't mind terribly, I have been trying to get an Orkut account to take a peek and see what it's all about for nigh on six months. Would someone kindly fire one off to me? Thanks a bunch!

There ya go! And don't worry about asking...if it weren't for people asking, this community would be dead. ^^

I guess not. I just tried to sign up with orkut, and have a Google account, but it says I still have to have an invite. Since I don't have an invite, I guess I'll have to wait a bit longer to try it out. : ( Ah well, it seems like it'll be worth the wait. : )

Well I had to check your profile for an email address but...consider yourself invited. ;-)

Once it becomes more integrated, that will likely be the case. Like right now, if you have a google account, you still need to get a Gmail invite (I think, anyways; it's still Beta phase), and with CL2 (Calendar) you have the account, you just need to activate it by using it once.

But since this is new, like Gmail (except that this was a service acquisition, not something in Beta), you still need an invite to activate the account.
