    Jerry, Jul 2, 2014 :
    Edit: please read about the updated system here:

    The OnePlus forum has been a very important and special place for us from the start. It was here before we even had a product. As the months flew by, the number of people who joined our community grew rapidly; however, the structure of our forum remained relatively unchanged. Things quickly became unorganized and confusing because of the diversity of fans, from newcomers to veteran phone smashers. To make sure that the forums remain relevant and fun, we are making some changes to the forums. These changes will be implemented a few hours after the posting of this thread.

    New Forum Levels:

    We are spicing up the forum levels. The new levels are based on codenames of Android versions of the past and the future. Instead of New Member, users start with the title of Cupcake and can reach the highest level of Android L over time. As new Android codenames are released, we’ll update the levels and the difficulty accordingly. Note that the levels are currently for fun, so a higher level does not equal a better chance at getting invites at this time.

    In order to advance to the next level, you need to reach the minimum requirements for both number of Trophy Points (1 post = 1 Trophy Point) and number of likes. This like-to-post ratio (of 20%) serves to disincentivize spam messages in order to level up. For example, someone with 80 points will remain in Froyo unless he/she has at least 16 likes.

    But don’t worry, the messages and likes you have earned thus far will be carried over to the new system. We encourage you to only give out likes only to posts that are of high quality; don’t reward users for spam!

    New Account Rules:

    The size of our forum has grown significantly over the past months, and the number of newcomers asking questions that have been answered is causing a lot of repetition. To encourage new users to read the major threads and stickied posts, new users will not be allowed to create new threads until they have replied to at least 5 threads first.

    These changes will be the first part of our initial update to the forums. Later this year, we will roll out a more comprehensive list of changes that will improve user experience and content. We hope you guys like these changes. Let us know what you think!

    Cool! :D
    Although the image says "Trophy points" and not "Messages" or "Posts". Kinda confusing, as right now you can get trophy points by posting/getting likes.

    Well, seems like it's going the good way but those aren't big changes and the new trophy point statuses might be confusing for non android pros...

    Nice new account rules. Not strict enough in my opinion though.
