“This is still an early preview of Google Wave, so you may run into some bumps along the way but we look forward to your feedback.” as said in wave-invitation.
I recently got my google wave.
Before clicking the link I have read carefully all the text of invitation e-mail.
“* This link will only work for one invitation to Google Wave, it cannot be shared!”
Noticed: “(If you do not have a Google account, you will be prompted to create one)“. Well I do have enough.
So e-mail was sent to my yuliakatkova”at”gmail, but I have a re-direct, so I was reading it on my another e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org, which is not gmail, but also does have a google account. In that moment this google account I also had opened with Google Reader.
So clicked the link & was signing up with wrong Google account.
I had a sign up page, where was already entered email@example.com, and I needed only to put a password. And I put password of that account and signed in. However system didn’t tell me that: “Sorry your Google account didn’t have a wave”. But let me sign in.
Well but it doesn’t work properly. Check a print screen.
i don’t have a green dots when contacts online, I don’t have my status. And when somebody writes me something I see it, and response, but somebody doesn’t get it.
Now I guess probably wave-team made possible changing of google account specially, in case when person got invitation to let him/her switch to his/her another google account. Though on the sign in page they need to make a notable question: “Are you sure you would like to sign in with this Google Account?”
Or they need to not let people enter with other than gmail google accounts. ‘Cause you see even though in generally I do have a Google wave, hmm it doesn’t work. Or to check out how wave work with the google accounts which has other e-mail address, not gmail.
And in help there is not such kind of the troubleshootings.
And another thing I am disappointed, I didn’t find where I can get a feedback. Well I do really like to be heard like a many other ppl. And I like to get a constructive response. Not like here contact us:
a. The fastest way to find answers is to look in our Help Center.
b. Have a great idea or suggestion? Let us know!
c. The next fastest way to get help is to post your question to the Help Forum.
Yeah of course I have three options to get answer, but no way to get my exact answer and what I can do to fix it.
Though I guess I just have to wait one of two things:
1. I’ll get a new invitation..
2. They’ll fix a Google wave for such google accounts like mine.
Anyway within I have a fewer experience of using Google wave I can’t describe a constructive portrait of it 🙂
