If anyone is looking for an invite to this great site visit the link at the bottom of this post. It’ll link you to my google docs , which asks for your email, then I’ll send you an invite immediately. Join in on the fun at Lockerz to get Free prizes. See you on Lockerz.com!!
What exactly is Lockerz all about?
Lockerz is the place to go to buy the coolest stuff , watch exclusive video, discover new music, play the hottest games, hang out with your friends – and get rewarded for just about EVERYTHING you do on the site. One other thing you’ll love about Lockerz are PTZ (or “points”). PTZ are Lockerz’ currency that you earn whenever you buy, watch, play, share, invite friends, or even just show up on Lockerz. Redeem PTZ at the PTZ Place for great prizes such as computers to video games and all other electronics goodies.
So how exactly do you get points?
Well to get points or “PTZ” as lockerz likes to call them all you need to do is log in everyday for your daily 2 points and answer a “Daily” question. These questions are usually simple yes or no answers such as do you have a tatoo, or do you like rock and roll or rap music. It’s really quite simple to build up points quickly. I’ve been a member for around a month now and already have over 100 points which I can redeem for a video game or something else but more on that below.
11-7-09: Initial release.
Very popular to what the blog had done for the Demonoid invite trading ring circle, I am going to do the same thing now for the Google Wave invite.
After waiting for 2 months, I finally got an invite but not from Google, but from a fellow Lifehacker reader. I had literally spent two weeks posting and trying to get an invite, with absolutely no responses. Last night I got an invite after two long months of waiting, and I am so eager to help the rest of you get onto the Google Wave bandwagon.
The post that gives me the most trouble here on the Underground is everyone asking for an invite code. Almost every frickin’ day someone comes along and asks, “Hey, can you give me an invite?”
Or “How about me too?” After a while, the google spreadsheet was born. In the beginning, I had faith that people had good will and would enter in their names and be done with it.
This worked well, except I quickly realized I had no control. Were there spam bots? How did I know people weren’t just typing in a bunch of fake email address or what? Hence, I decided that I had to control the spreadsheet myself. By having people enter in their requests through the comments, I am able to update the spreadsheet.
How does the Versatile1 system work with invites?
I will tell you how it currently works and what is the process:
1) E-mail people the “test” email. What I do here is I have a pre-written script that I just copy and paste to people. It has very specific instructions in there, and I tell people to respond to me as soon as possible. The e-mail contact is then added to a temporary demonid category list.
2) If people respond, I send them invite. If people don’t respond within a week, I go online to the google spreadsheet and mark them as “EPIC FAIL ACCOUNTS”.
3) For those people who I sent an invite, I ask them if it works. If it does, I add them to the official “Demonoid” category mailing list.
4) Once or twice a month I send out a mass email to the “Demonoid” mailing list asking for invites. It works in a sense I get a crapload of invites. Then I start the circle all over again and sending test emails. If not enough people respond, I have a bunch of expired codes. That is no good!
So now the new method is on the master e-mail list, I ask that people who can generate codes respond to me, but don’t send me any codes yet. I will collect a pool of active participants, and ask them to send me invites one by one.
This way I can distribute invite codes on demand, whithout having to get stuck in a situation where I have more codes on the verge of expiration than participants.
The point of this post is to get feedback from you guys. What do you think is a better method of doing this? Any thoughts? For now the system works fine. I’m cleaning up my mass e-mail list and adding flair to my test email. If there is anything else I should be considering, let me know.

12-14-09: Cleaned up the entire demonoid form, and wrote a fresh new intro.
Note: Welcome Afterdawn users! Thanks for seeing the link, and if you have friends or you are just looking for a demonoid invite, you have come to the right place! ~ Versatile
Demonid is back, and what better way to celebrate it than to restart the entire Demonoid invite ring?
How does it work?
I have suffered so much in the past trying to figure out the best way to make this work, and this is the solution. All you need to do is click the google spreadsheet form below, fill out the information, and then follow the instructions on the confirmation page.
If the notes on the confirmation page is so important, why even bother with the form at all? Well, that is a good question. The form is there so I can track from the beginning of time how many people have used this service, and so I can tell you guys how popular this invite ring is.
Also, it helps me figure out who has invites. If there were 1,000 people I have invited over the last year, that means I have at least 1,000 people ready to help me send out invites. Get it?
Enjoy your Demonoid journey! You deserve it, and this is the easiest way for me to help you out, as I have been in your shoes before. Beaten and frustrated, but now you don’t have to suffer. All I ask is just continue to visit the blog. Thanks!
