    Update 2012-11-27: new wave of invites, consider donating!




    Hey all,

    After seeing the mess that is giving away beta keys in the stream chats, it dawned on me that there had to be a better way to share keys with strangers. So, I spent the afternoon making a little web app to do just that.

    It works like this: you can donate keys, or request keys. Donated keys are periodically emailed to the folks who requested keys. A few keys are emailed every hour at current settings, but I will adjust it if the backlog of keys grows. This is done purely to prevent some abuse as well as lighten the load on the webhost that's hosting the page.

    Update: You can now remove yourself from the list if you no longer wish to be on the list or have already received beta access from another source. Let's keep the list updated so those in need get keys.

    Also, just so we're all clear, this is unofficial. I wrote this app myself and have no affiliation with Red5 or Firefall etc. I'm just a fan who wants to give back to the community.

    The site may periodically go down as the site is hosted on appengine for the free tier. If it does, it'll be back up at Midnight PST every day, so don't worry!

    There's more details on the page itself, so enjoy.

    I was given a beta key by someone else after signing up for this and I recieved one from it just now, seeing as it's your friend's what actions does he want me to take with it since I'm already in the beta now.

    That is sick!

    Nice and handy way to help out in distributing the extra invites others were trying to give away.

    You can probably just donate it back into the system. :)
