I hope this isn't out of line, but I thought I would ask here. I don't feel like adding my email addy to the hopelessly long list at digg.

I'm looking for a Joost invite if anybody has one. I think it would be cool if we had some on the Vine, and spread the Joost love to others.

So, if anybody's got a Mac invite they might share, please PM me for my email address. I WILL pay this forward to other Vine members.

Thanks in advance.

I'd love one too. I wish I had one to give you. : (

Thanks. I've got another lead, so I'll wait to see if that comes through before I bother your friend. I THINK the OS matters on the invite, but I'm not sure.

Once I've got Joost, I will spread the invites around here. I've heard that Joost recently gave unlimited invites to their beta users, so maybe we'll have a ton to give out soon.

I'll wait for your info P-Man.

I'm interested, P-man, but what does it exactly do?

I may get an account through another avenue too. I posted a request on something awful and if I do get one I'll post some invites.

You'd have to high speeds for Joost because apparently it's high quality stuff. None of that YouTube, there's clear sound and visuals.

I never realized before that am not able to get it. Apparently those of us with PowerPC macs are screwed because they only have it compiled for the intel chipset.

Hmmm... I wonder if i can get it on my ps3...

Alright everybody. I've gotten ahold of Joost, and I'm ready to give out invites.

Here are my rules for handing them out, plus a couple of caveats:

CAVEAT 1: I've heard from other people that the invite widget sometimes does not immediately work for some users. I won't know until I start sending out invites, so let's all be patient.

CAVEAT 2: I'm not really sure how many invites I have to give out. I read recently that Joost had recently given unlimited invites to their beta users, but I can't confirm this. I cannot find how many I have to give out in my account info, so this leads be to believe the stories I've read.

  1. To start out, I will send invites to anyone on either the Top 20 Submissions list, or the Top 10 Forum Posts list.

  2. If you are not on one of those two lists, I will send you an invite if you are on my Friends/Enemies list. DO NOT try to get on my Friends/Enemies list just because you want in invite.

  3. If you do not quality for #1 or #2 and you pester me about in invite, don't count on every getting one from me.

  4. Once you have been given in invite from me and have sign-up successfully, please start spreading your own invite love around the Vine.

  5. If you qualify for #1 or #2, PM me with your email address. DO NOT post your email address in this thread. I won't necessarily check it on a regular basis.

  6. I am not tech support, so please don't ask me questions about downloading/installation/etc. I'm probably just as clueless as you are.

Once I've filled the orders from members who qualify, I'll expand it into a second round.

Bump. Please read the post just above this one.

Sweet. Good stuff P-man.

DO they got those spider-man animated series from 2003? I could never find it on youtube...

Well I have been reading the forums on Joost and I am having problems sending invites too, and apparently you need to participate in the forums and then you will get invites.

(Just keep scrolling down and it says "see above, you should be active on this forum, only then you'll get credits to invite people")

Totally bleugh-ness.

Yep. I'm working on it.
