Although a lots of folks have managed to beta test Google Wave by now, the demand for invites remain high. Our initial giveaway of 25 free invites was by no means enough to supplement the huge demand and as you can see from comments to the giveaway thread, we were overwhelmed by hundreds of requests. Anyways as promised, the second Google Wave invite giveaway here. Thanks to two of our loyal readers who offered to share their invites with us, we are now in a position to offer 50 more invites to wannabe ‘Wave Riders’ out there: :p

Google Wave

If you still don’t know what it is, Wave is a personal communication and collaboration tool with some revolutionary features. It’s viewed by many as a new internet communication platform and ultimately a replacement for the likes of E-Mail, IM, etc. The service is currently in beta and an invitation from an existing member is mandatory for sign up (hence this article).

Coming back to the giveaway, obtaining an invite is very easy. All you need to do is to send us a mail with the following format:
UPDATE: This Giveaway is now over. We have received more than 50 requests. Please do not send any more. Invites will be mailed to the first 50 requests over the next couple of days.

  • Send the mail to invites[dot]filenetworks[at]gmail.com
  • Email should have the subject “Wave Giveaway 02
  • Message body should have the E-mail address invite should be sent to

Only the first 50 requests will be considered and all mails sent after that will be ignored. Please allow 2-3 days for your invitation to arrive as there may be delays with us sending out invites and internal slowdowns in the Wave invite system itself.

It must be mentioned that this giveaway is made possible by two of our loyal readers/Twitter followers; Omar(@TatesMan) and Cray (@dragonxeric). Out of the 50 invites, only 6 invites are actually from us - rest is all them :p

Once again it’s nice to see folks willing to share their invitations to various sites/services through FILEnetworks Blog. This excellent support from the community was one of the reasons why our last Demonoid giveaway was/is such a huge success. Thanks to everyone who shared and keep up the good work :)

  115. Stephan // 12/25/2009 10:55:00 PM  

    Since others are giving out invites again, I will only give 1 out to ppl who MENTION MY NAME in their post. I dont want to waste my invites on ppl who have them filled from someone else.

    Very simple, say my name!

  119. Ramiz // 12/26/2009 12:11:00 PM  

    Hey Stephan i have Not Got your invitation yet but i am patient and i will wait but i have a question whats the difference between if we are registered user of demonoid and not registered
    ?????

  120. Stephan // 12/26/2009 02:29:00 PM  

    @Ramiz, invite will arrive in your e-mail within the next couple of hours, usually doesnt take longer than that, but it is def. coming.

    About the differences with registered/non-registered users of Demonoid, I believe that non-registered users are only allowed to view most recently added torrents (like less than 2 weeks old, I think) and are limited to a certain amount of downloads per week (3 maybe), they can only view the comments and not post them, not allowed to view forums or upload your own torrents.

    Registered users have their up/down stats tracked (ratio), create their own torrents, view the forums, post comments, invite others.

    Dont know if all that still applies to all the non-registered, cause I'm a registered member there and have been for some time. Those are some things that I remember when I was non-registered.

    Congratulations to all who received invites!! At this time there will be no more invites given out by me. Make sure to check back at a later date for FILEnetworks Blog's "Google Wave Invite Giveaway 03" (which I'm pretty sure they'll have) as I too will be giving out PLENTY more invites in the comments section!

    For those lucky enough to have received one, make sure you visit Wavedirectory.appspot.com for add-ons and bots to personalize your Google Wave.

    Thanks goes out to FILEnetworks Blog for continuing to serve the community as a whole and for being one of my favorite blog sites! :)
