    Yes. Once you started on the names I had to actually use a regular expression match. All caps is pretty easy, but once you switched to lower case with no numbers its impossible to filter, plus google forms doesn't let you filter by IP.

    By the way, I'm going to screencast the selection process so you know its legit. Well, that, and its fun to do :)

    Also, if anyone else has any invites they want to give away, but don't know who to give them to, feel free to pass them along and I'll select more names. Please be sure to tell me when they sent it to you so we know how long we have until it expires.

    if I submit my username there's an error message saying "Must match pattern". What am I doing wrong? I have entered my username and hit the submit button, that's all.

    I'm just trying to make it fair for everyone, and try to make sure people dont get multiple entries. If you're legit than thats fine.

    I'm sure you didn't use the correct Regex. Probably used a [A-Z] match. It matched a capital letter.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if it would match any or all characters. Apparently it was any.

    EDIT: 12 minutes remaining!
