When Google rolls out new services (like GMail 2) they sometimes also use whitelists to select some of the people who first get to try the new service. Who here agrees with me that any of the forum's top posters should be on a permanent whitelist? :D blogoscoped.com/forum/personra ...

It seems like that would be a great idea. But will sadly never happen.

I haven't got "Gmail 2.0", in fact, I only just got IMAP on one of my accounts a couple of days ago.

I wish the link appears before saturday...
IMAP is nice, but I preffer to use the online version!

Yeah, I used to be a strict Microsoft Outlook user. But Gmail changed all of that for me. Who knew that you could have "awesome" webmail? Now I just want Gmail 2.0.

I better start posting more often!

Oh, and I got IMAP and 2.0 right away. Maybe I'm already on the Whitelist.

[put at-character here]/pd not quite :)
GTT gets you access to services (and not necessarily all of them) that they're working on and might never release to the public

on the other hand they can whitelist anybody

No Gmail 2 (though I know I'm not a top poster) ... and I think everyone now has IMAP because I'm pretty sure I was the last few to get it ... Gmail doesn't like me.

I don't have it yet either
i was just saying that we *should* be of the first to get it, not that we are

Many people still saying "I haven't got Gmail2 yet"

Who has got it till now, anyone from GB?

Don't worry about it. They started off with giving it to 1% of GMail users and it will reach 100% by beginning of next week

Times like these I hate scalability.
