Is WP.COM getting ready to get rid of the invite system?

Posted in Uncategorized by on October 4, 2005

Well, it might just be me, but in the days prior of getting my invite to test Flock, I was desperate to get a wp.com invite, so I used about 3 different emails to get the invite, and guess what: last week I got a ‘Golden Ticket’ for each of the emails I entered in the wp.com homepage.
Since I don’t need them anymore they just lay there unused in my inbox.
But this made me think how easy it is becoming to get a wp.com invite, and I think you are pretty much going to get one if you write your email address in the little invite box in the homepage.

I’d love to get some stats on new blogs/day and such, but I don’t think Matt will even read this post, so…

I have just upgraded the site to WordPress 1.6 Alpha-Still-Don’t-Use (get the idea?). Some people might think I’s risky, but I just couldn’t wait for the final release. Of couse, with the install of fresh software, a review is a must, so here it goes: After updating all the files, I though my WordPress install was messed up, as i got some errors while trying to get into the admin area, so I just went to the upgrade.php file, and upgraded (duh!).
