i only have 8 so leave email address here if you want to test it out.
invites aren't needed anymore
MSN has switched back to protocol 12 which means everyone can sign into the beta's
aye what you dont know its only for awhile.
i do know, becoz im a connect.microsoft tester, and have access to the group chats. they can't just switch it off again otherwise users won't have access to messenger anymore.
so its not a feasible option.
so why are they still handing invites then?????
i haven't gotten invites for almost 4 weeks now.
you only get invites if someone invited you to the beta.
well i got 10 invites on Friday already used 2 of them, so explain that?
Oh come on guys un twist your knickers and forget about the whole incident. If anyone wants an invite them let them ask for it. If you don't want an invite then there is no need to post.
I know that the beta testing has basically gone public. I don't know and haven't heard of them taking that public access away.
Well i got an invite from MS and to be honnest i seriously don't get what's all the noise about....
It looks exactly like the previous messanger, with a couple of glossy touch ups and a lot of bugs....
You guys need to read more technology news sites (Neowin.net) to keep yourselves updated.
No the BETA has NOT gone public, you still need an invite to use WLM. But Microsoft has compensated people who already started to use WLM without invites, they're letting people in directly who use this link.
That link is the sign up link for "Windows Live™ Messenger beta"
You can also download it from : http://www.msn.co.uk/messengerbeta/Default.asp?MSPSA=1
So, it's more or less gone public. You don't need invites any more to download and get the latest msn.
btw ... I will still stick to Trillian. It's way better.
IRC, where you wanna be
for god sake i only asked who wanted a invite not a slang war
thanks 4 for kind thoughts
but .... :dave:
but everybody doesnt seem to care
I tried it, and hated it. People seem to be having trouble with it as well, hence it's a BETA. I somehow don't feel the urge to constantly update my MSN when there's little to nothing that has changed either way... I got to use polygami on it as well, as this is a computer used by multiple accounts.. I stick to 7.5.0324.
I don't know if it's the newer version of MSN Messenger of the Microsoft servers but I'm having a lot of trouble signing on to MSN Messenger. It has nothing to do with my settings, it's the poor quality of Microsoft always hyping a new version when the previous one doesn't work as it should.
yeah, we know there are some major ui bugs, as well as stability bugs.
..heck there are some crash bugs that windows doesn't know what the hell to report :|
I ditched it and went back to 7.5. I do like the gui better, and Beta2 was hella lot better than Beta1...which was absolutely detestable, but it is still buggy and not worth the effort over 7.5 atm imho.
