WLMessenger Beta Gift

I have just received an email that says this

Hello Windows Live Messenger Beta Tester,	  
We run beta programs to make our products the best they can be. You?ve helped us do just that with the Windows Live? Messenger Beta. 	
To show our appreciation, we?ve created an exclusive Messenger? theme pack that we?re sending to you and the other Beta testers who?ve helped us so much. This free Kung Fu Bunny theme pack for Messenger, complete with dynamic display pictures, Messenger backgrounds, and a wink, is a token of our thanks.

Why a rabbit skilled in the martial arts? We could tell you it?s because you?re a bug-busting samurai of the beta-testing world but, really, it?s just because he made us laugh. We hope you have fun with him too.

You?ll only be able to download this free Messenger theme pack for the next 30 days, so get it now! 

Again, many thanks for your help!

Sincerely,

The Windows Live Messenger Beta Team

I downloaded it and :p looks very nice :p winks , emoticons and etc ...

Haven't got the email yet, but that's disappointing. Considering I got a webcam for v7.0, and 8.0 was a much bigger change... i think we deserve more than just a theme pack. Ah well, what can you do. Free stuff is free :p

Spam :whistle:

And yes, all managed beta testers were told to update our addresses.

Judging from what people are reporting, I have a feeling that people who were invited by other members got this e-mail, not the managed team who could post on connect.

I think your pretty much on the ball with this, Planetik, the invited users were the ones who got the emails regarding the theme pack for WLM. While manged beta testers, (Myself being one, and explains why I havnt received an email about the theme pack) will recieve something in the mail, possibly a webcam.

I have yet to receive this email and i was officially invited from Microsoft.

I REALLY hope that this isn't the gift.

Yeh, I got 3 to the same e-mail address.

Never used a theme pack before and probably won't again, much prefer choosing my own background and display pic.

BTW do animated DP usually make convo's load slower or is it just me?

If you read the Connect page for WLM (for those in the managed beta), you'll notice the bit about them sending addresses to the shipping company...

^^ to the above. If you gave them your correct address when you registered onto Connect, there's nothing to change and they have your address and should receive whetever they may be sending. They just wanted to make sure if you moved or had a change in address that they be updated.
