Does Gmail give out invites based on how much the user uses Gmail?

    I have heard many times that Gmail does not give out invites based on use, but i do not believe this is true. I have two Gmail accounts, one of which i use constantly, and another i have not sent a single message on. The account i use, i have gotten 10 invites on total, and none on the other.

    not that i can tell.

    though i don't use my account anymore since it won't seem to work with firefox, i have friends that use their quite regularly, but they didn't get any additional invites until this last round was handed out.

    1911- I have a gmail account that I use regularly and I got 6 invites on it. I used one to open another account for myself for junk mail, and the next day I had 6 in the new accounts, with out ever sending or recieving an email. So, I guess it doesnt matter.

    Ronin- I use gmail with Firefox everyday in Linux. What OS are you using? FireFox version?

    xp sp1, with ff 0.9.3

    yeah, it's something on my machine, i know that, but i don't know what. it just stopped working, i never changed the config of firefox. i get a javascript error when i click the button to send or reply to an email.

    i'm over it though, i had enough frustrations with gmail before the firefox thing and i stopped using it, and went back to yahoo and postman.net.

    I have 3 gmail accounts. Only one gets messages, the others do not. I had six invites for each account this morning.
