    Hi everyone reading this ! Today's gonna be an extremely memorable day for me on the forums as I just completed 5 years today ! [Proof]


    If you wanna know more about me, you're free to read my awkward introduction full of brackets and exclamation marks here : https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/my-official-introduction.390821/ [My [official] introduction !!!!!]

    I'm currently studying engineering [information technology] , still a Mumbaikar [e]2764[/e]️ , still single 😅 and still a big fan of OnePlus and Linkin Park [e]2764[/e]️[e]2764[/e]️[e]2764[/e]️[e]2764[/e]️ . You may know me from my work - Kryo ROMs which I couldn't maintain properly and I honestly apologize for that , and thank all those who tried them out.

    Enough about myself , let me talk about the actual reason why I joined the forums . It started with the first phone that OnePlus made and had an invite system for. I just thought that joining the forums would be a cool thing to show off . Didn't work out though , because none of my friends knew about the forums 😅

    Some of the highlights of my journey are :

    February 2015 : Got my first OnePlus device after waiting patiently for an invite , for those who don't know it was cumpolsary [e]1f631[/e] you can read how I came to know about OnePlus in my official introduction .

    March 18, 2015 : joined the OnePlus forums

    April 2016 : My actual ROM development journey started. I had made a sort of ROM before that but it wasn't source built . Got to learn a lot of new stuff, got to meet a lot of amazing people and made a lot of new friends (online) . Surely gonna try to comeback this year, but can't assure anything .....

    June 14, 2016 : Bought the OnePlus 3 on the launch day itself . It was my favourite OnePlus device ever made along with the 7 pro . Yeah I'm a fan of metal backs and curved screens 😅 Didn't really care about design in a smartphone before this one . According to me, it had the most effective improvements like Dash charging, AMOLED display, an actually great camera , a major change in design and it was THE actual device which introduced a new era of OnePlus . I still remember the excitement of watching the launch online after all the rumours and the removal of the invites system !

    2017 : Had to officially leave ROM development due to lack of free time [e]1f62d[/e]

    May 2018 : I got to experience the OnePlus 6 launch in Mumbai with my friend , and ended up buying both the flagships , the bullets wireless some months later due to it getting out of stock so quickly and the OnePlus 6 . It was an amazing experience and I look forward to more launches and OnePlus events in Mumbai !

    2019 : Won the first prize from OnePlus during their store launch quiz competition (a bag, a shirt , a sketchbook) !!!!! Also took part in a loads of competitions on the forums , though I didn't actually win anything . Still was lotsa fun ! Also took part in the survey for the addition magazine , and I managed to get one just in time !

    March 18, 2020 : The time has come. As I always said , I've been here since almost the beginning , a lot longer than you think . I've had a great time here, and hope to do so throughout .

    I've still not overcome my habit of using a lot of brackets and exclamation marks , and hope to do so too 😅

    On a more important note,

    Today also happens to the day that OnePlus is gonna launch a new logo !

    Tl, dr

    I just completed 5 years on the forums !

    I guess a lot of y'all might have nothing to do due to the virus , so just read it for passing some time !
    Anyway , thanks for reading [e]1f604[/e][e]1f604[/e]
