what´s the problem with orkut? it seems to be down most of the time

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

Yes it's often down. I wouldn't say most of the time. But it's always very slow, so slow I don't like to use it any more. I also don't like to use it much because all font-sizes, and the whole layout, seems to be tiny on screens I use (it doesn't adapt much). But then again these are all issues which Google might be able to fix one of these days. Performance-wise and concerning other technical issues (not the content, not the idea, which is good) I find Orkut.com to be the worst of all Google services (next to Google Groups 2 Beta, which is so unusable in my opinion).

*the idea is not theirs, it is not new
*the code we don´t know for sure is theirs, there is a claim of theft
*the search capabilities in Orkut are terrible
*it is slow and down many times

what are they doing well?

the layout is good for me

The one thing they are definitely doing well is getting new people to sign up for Orkut. They've grown a large community fast.

besides, there are no posts

-Large community of Brazilian people! *Sarcastic*

"But it's always very slow, so slow I don't like to use it any more."
-I think the same, veeeeeeeeeeery sloooooooooow.

"I find Orkut.com to be the worst of all Google services (next to Google Groups 2 Beta, which is so unusable in my opinion)."
-I am in total agreement.

What's the worst is that I find the whole interface (fonts, widths, page length, etc.) much too small on my screen. E.g. in my inbox, I saw I believe 5 mails per screen, and had to click next-next-next – this was unnecessary, because 5 mails filled barely 10% of my screen.

After they started the secure login thing, I cant login at all $^$^!$^ even when using the latest version of Firefox.

WHAT'S the PROBLEM WITH THEM?

The same with me here ...
Can't login since the secure login is enabled either with Mozilla 1.7 which I usually use nor with IE (which I usually avoid to use) ...

I also always slow ... really annoying...
Is there anybody who has not this problem out there. Which Browser does he or she use?

In my opinion Orkut is the first stupidity of Google
If you try it (Orkut) with Gecko (Mozilla, Firefox...) simply doesn't work
But try it with IE: works fine

Googlers: bad, very bad

i sent a invitation to my freind, but he told that invitation was failed, i investigate the problem and find that he was right, the error was orkut page displaying was;

   Invitation failed.

The reason might be one of the following:

   You entered a wrong email address
   You have not enabled JavaScript on your browser
   Your browser is not accepting cookies
You already accepted the invitation and signed up
The url specified is invalid
   If you are using Hotmail, you may need to copy and paste this URL into a new Internet Explorer window

If you know someone who is a member of orkut, have them invite you to join.

but all things are 100% correct according to this page, which may cause error.
any one have any solution to this problem reply here, because i have tried many times but the page after 2 pages displaying this error. any reply will be appretiated.

Orkut looks no better than yahoo groups. For socializing on the net there are better options.

Orkut doesn't provide enough information about what they are about.

I tried to join and I found that someone have to invite me.

I would like to know what can you do inside of orkut.

Orkut is a mudpie. It's slow, it doesn't search well, it doesn't customize well and it doesn't integrate with useful services well.

#1 – MySpace
#2 – Friendster

I dunno I stop using Orkut when it was overrun by people whose language I don't speak (mostly Portugese). Nothing wrong with that. But it limited Orkut's already limited usability even further.

All Orkut had going for it was its novelty and exclusivity. I predict it's going to be similar with Yahoo 360.

In the meantime I've already tried yahoo 360 and I've got an account, so far it's working quite well. It will be more interesting when I get friends to sign up and use it though.

Can't seem to use orkut at all with firefox beta 1.5 doesn't seem to go past the login page. i know i'm entering hte correct username and password because that absolutely works with IE. Have allowed orkut.com all privileges in Firefox: javascript, popups, all to no avail.

Sux with IE as well. keep getting "bad server. No doughnut for you!" as if that's supposed to crack me up everytime. half the things i enter i have to enter again.

3 months or so ago orkut asked me to link my orkut id with my google id... to log in.,.. i did so ..and things were fine .. till about a week back .. when it once more asked me to connect my orkut account with my google accout.

though i had already done this 3 month's back.. i once again connected my orkut userid to my google id.... but now it doesnt accept the old password which i used to sign in with when i simply used to log in with the orkut id.

i mailed the suckers bout it.. but there's been no response from the orkut guys.. save for a automated thank u mail

any idea guys..

The first and last time I used orkut was around mai 2004 in the time when the 1st gmail invites were in ebay for $100. Even those of orkut were on ebay btw!

It seemed at first like a nice community from Google, now it's 80% SPAM, I receive sometimes up to 5 SPAM/day from orkut.

I just never go back there anymore...

I would be interessting on the other side for someone who is learning portuguese or wants to meet brazilian people ;-)
