Invites for Systems - Spotify, Google+, Unthink....et al
It is my firm opinion that you should ask for an invite for any of invite only systems if you fit the following criteria.
- Been a member for 6 months or more
- Have a post count of atleast 0.5 per day or over 100 posts
In the past there have been people with 1 post count and signing up in the month something has been released to invite only and beg for invites and frankly it annoys the hell out of me. Allow me to explain my rationale for this.
Invites for systems like this are limited, we are lucky to get more than 2 or 3 at a time and are like gold dust, as once they are gone, that's it. I don't want it going to a person that does not contribute to the community.
For example - Google+. I was one of the few people lucky enough to be on the Google beta boards so I handed out invites/loophole invites, and gave the community feedback and previews as to what is coming. New people coming and begging for the invites makes some of the people with the invites annoyed at the fact the people have the audacity to ask without giving anything to the community first.
So as such, please do not ask me (or anyone else for that matter without incurring my annoyance) for an invite if you do not satisfy the criteria above.
