    Pretty excited about this. I got paired up with somebody right away on a side-project I've been shelving for the past 3 years.

    I'm already into the back-end structure part of the site and looking to launch soon.

    Great work! Can't wait to show off what we're creating :)

    A darker font color would be great.

    this reminds me a lot of Assembly which has a few active projects. Anyone know if meeet.co is much different? Or any significant advantages of using meeet.co over assembly?

      This isn't necessarily open source, and its co-developers rather than larger teams.

      It's more focused on making that side project that's near and dear to you rather than making something huge.

    I was pretty bummed out to discover that I still needed an invite to apply to projects — especially since I found one I wanted to get involved with right away. You should definitely be more clear about that.

    It's not. This invite based approach only makes sense if you have big demand. I don't think it works for Meeet. There is big change that those people who signed up earlier will never come back because they don't have an invite.

      We're actually working this out right now. We didn't want to get flushed with a lot of unused spam accounts, nor with uninterested folks.

      I agree that the invite system makes more sense with a larger userbase — and we got a lot of sign ups. And some of those were from people who really don't have any work and aren't necessarily "qualified." I put that in quotes as its kind of arbitrary.

        We should use this thread to get some invites going. I just signed up (username: mattsjohnston), but don't even know who is on the site in order to ask for an invite.

    Usernames have to be 4 characters or more? #fail

      sounds pretty reasonable to me.

        Meh. I think Twitter changed that mentality since it doesn't really do anything that benefits the user. My initials (and most usernames) are 'pbj' so yea.

    You still need an invite to use the site.

    "To get started, you'll need an account. After you create an account, you'll be asked to fill in some of your talents and a bio. People already signed up for Meeet who have an invite to give away have the option to send you one, but if you know someone in the community, try asking them."
