    If you only went up to ~1200's with 300 fake email accounts, goodness knows how many other people must have used :eek:

    I didn't even tried much. My interest was only for educational purposes. OnePlus should have added the captcha right from the start. That would have reduced the chances of bot based hacks.

    There is also another thing that puzzles me.
    I registered a new email id to the reservation list now. So I should expect mybself to be at a position greater than 5313617 in the list once I confirmed my registration.
    Screenshot_2015-09-15-00-47-17.jpg But when I confirmed I found my self at a much higher position without doing anything
    So why around 500000 people are already below me?. What did those unfortunate souls did to be below me? Are those the cheaters and fake email ids that you combed out? If so why are they still on the list?

    @Mike @Carl @Pete @Cat H

    I want to thank you for helping me make my decision on my next phone.

    You see, I found the compromise in your reservation list MYSELF and MANUALLY entered each and every referral and MANUALLY confirmed each and every confirmation email.

    I broke the top 100 on the list at one point and invested many hours doing this method thanks to your beginner programming on the reservation list and Gmail's useful method of adding dots throughout your own email address so you still received the emails but the reservation system thought it was a new sign-up.

    It baffles me that you would reward the person that compromised the system with a script and then subsequently penalize everyone else that found it on their own and did it manually.

    One would think you would reward everyone that compromised your system prior to the release of the video as, like me, I imagine we all thought the compromise in the system was just another OnePlus Easter Egg similar to the invite codes on the VR release. I thought you would be happy and proud of us, never once did I think you would be naive enough to penalize us for being creative.

    But, with all of that out of the way and me for sure being penalized as stated since I stopped counting my referrals once I exceeded 400, thank you for helping me narrow down my decision for my next phone as it definitely will NOT by a OnePlus product as it has been well documented that investing time and creativity in an attempt to receive an invite is a waste and therefore I will not be wasting my money on such a hypocritical company that rewards one but punishes all others that did it before it was made known.

    This discrepancy has been there from the beginning and it has become more exaggerated as the list grew. People would sign up with random email addresses and not be able to confirm them. Therefore, it would place the email on the list but would not officially place them in line.

    So as you can see, there are a lot of email addresses that have been signed up but never confirmed.

    As a One + owner, I didn't find out about the reservation list until a few days in. I assumed that those of us who purchased the 1 + 1 and were active on forums would be rewarded prior to any reservation list for the masses. My bad!!

    Just an overall disappointing experience. The whole reservation list exists because oneplus cannot manufacture in quantities. I've been honestly active only to have my reservation number get pushed out by some 70K. Does oneplus honestly expect folks to hang on 2 months plus for buying the OPT? is it that big of a "flagship killer?"

    Trust me I understand your frustration as I'm now down around the FIVE MILLIONTH position LOL...Just as well the phone is a disappointment and I still think that very few are getting invites and some of those report the phones are out of stock when they go to buy the op2....One thing is certain...even a parent company like oppo can only be patient for so long before taking action. We are nearly two months in and hardly anyone has an invite never mind a phone!

    Nice to see you're a fellow goner! Maybe we should start discussing team tactics etc instead of the damn phone !!!
