The posts here go to our blog (which many waiting list people are subscribed to) as well as the "beta news" page inside Ravelry. I don't want to over-do the communication, but since I put up two member-related posts in a row...
1931 invitations have been sent - 437 of these invites have gone out in the last 50 hours.
See what you made us do? ;) The invite request list is now just under 5700 people long.
We have about 250 things (large and small) that we still want to add to the site. Beta testers suggest new ideas and add to our list on a daily basis. There is just SO MUCH that Ravelry could do - what you see in the screenshots is just the beginning.
