    This is a star thread for CUBE. Check more excellent content here.


    Hi, I go by @Impersonal here on the forums, and am proud to be part of such a great Community! What makes a Community great? The very awesome people (all of us together)! Obviously, this is especially true for the OnePlus Community were through years of both users engagement and staff involvement, formed this magnificent gathering place, that was/still is forged by the Never Settle mentality, with more than 2300000 users , over 750000 discussions (most talking about when the legendary 3T will get Android 10 :p ) it is the one thing that truly separates OnePlus from any other tech company.

    OnePlus recently launched The CUBE (yes spelled in all caps ;)) an official platform, for everyone here, remember the Community is OnePlus’s heart, a true asset for the Company, and the new CUBE platform, has the potential to become the heart of the Community, a trophy room of what is, it's BEST to offer. I highly encourage you all to check it out, already, there are some awesome threads there.
    The CUBE was created by OnePlus to show appreciation, admiration, and love, and help fulfill the Community’s huge potential. So what better way of celebrating this new platform than a contest in which we the people could show some love back at OnePlus. A contest that celebrates the love users have for the brand and community itself, a contest where we can express ourselves, through creativity, a Community Edition Contest - Everything OnePlus a DIY OnePlus themed personalization/customization contest! I was always astonished by the lengths community members do go to show their love, devotion, appreciation in especially music, movies and sports Communities, we should one plus them all!

    So you/we have until Sep 26 (HKT) to post a picture or a short video of your project(s) the entries are unlimited, since you can't put a cap on creativity or love. ;)

    It could be literally everything, or anything, something Big or Small, the possibilities are infinite , and it is all up to you/us.

    A big shout-out to @luxuskamel that inadvertently inspired this idea through this picture :


    You know since "custom" everything is all the rave these days, the title is self-explanatory, here are some ideas/ examples that came to my small decrepit mind just to illustrate what this could be about :

    1. A cool OnePlus Sneakers/shoes customs (as a tip, the best for it are Converse All Star, Adidas Superstar or Nike Air Force 1, but anything looks cool with OnePlus on it )
    2. Bake a OnePlus cake, muffin, or other delicious item
    3. A refreshing cocktail
    4. Some cool coffee art, sick and tired of all them foamy "palm" leaf designs
    5. Dye or cut your hair OnePlus
    6. Paint your face/nails/beer belly/kids/car/room/house OnePlus
    7. An awesome OP doodle on your student notepad, a graffiti, some chalkboard art, a painting, a sketch
    8. If you have some awesome calligraphy skills, write "Never Settle", hang it, it would sure look much better, and be more inspiring, than "live laugh love" ;)
    9. If you work for MI6 you can use a @Pete latex face-mask for a cosplay
    10. Post the potato chip/or birthmark that kinda looks like the OP logo
    11. Do a running map that is somehow OP inspired, idk, shaped like a 7 and has exactly 7km (or miles for our imperial friends)
    12. You could make a necklace, a ring, some earrings
    13. If you're an outstanding Canadian farmer you can make some OP "crop circles"
    14. You can even legally change your name to @Carl
    I know you are all AWESOME and have greater ideas, can’t wait to be awed, surprised and astonished!

    A big THANK YOU to @Trista W. my/our OnePlus liaison, (there were probably many others that I'm not aware of that made this possible, so this goes for them also) she, not only was on board with the idea since day one, and made everything in her power to make this happen, also managed to score for us some truly some AMAZING PRIZES :

    OnePlus Community team will be the judges, and based on the creativity and love involved will do the hard job of selecting 3 grand winners, each to receive a stunning :
    OnePlus Explorer Backpack !


    but that is not all folks, since this contest is a celebration of creativity, community, and love, another lucky 5 will be chosen randomly for a prize consisting of 500 raffle points each !

    *Standard terms and conditions apply
    *Submitting an entry here means you allow OnePlus to use your entry as marketing materials

    Most importantly remember to have FUN!

    PS: Similar to @Pym C. "[EU Contest] Share Your Longest Day: #OnePlusGoExplore", at the end of this, we might do a compilation of the entries.

    PSS: if you lack the time, resources, skill, yet have a great idea, that would make a great project, feel free to float it in this thread, it will not count as an entry but maybe you’ll inspire someone that will materialize your vision.

    I am an illustration/visualizer artist, from India. "Smiling faces & ever-growing community". This is the idea that flashed into my mind when I heard about 'OnePlus contest'. I drew it in a paper: A growing community of smiling faces. A growing community that cares about each other. A growing community has a sense of belonging and trust. 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ ... and its growing.
    I scribbled this with my calligraphy pen and oil pastels my A3 size Artist drawing pad. #clicked the scribble with my #OnePlus6 @Pete @Carl

    and @luxuskamel

    From your suggestions..Here it is.

    A 36 x36 ft (10.98 x 10.98m) image of logo in alfalfa grass ... Area typically used for pasturing horses. Measurements were based on dimensions given in the OnePlus TV announcement. I set up pegs for the corners and main landmarks for the logo, then mowed the grass (most areas were 3ft tall), edges were trimmed. FYI: The measurement were as follows:
    From the outter edge of the borders to the other end was 36 ft. The inside edge of the borders is 28 ft x 28ft (8.53x8.53m). The borders, 1, and the plus symbol were just over 4 ft wide.

    After finishing it, a couple jumbo jet flew over head. Probably best to get a good picture. For the pictures, I stood on the roof of an old house. As you can see it is big enough that made it hard to capture in one Picture. Thinking that having the wide angle of the 7pro would have been useful to capture every aspect of the picture. Check the thumbnails if you want to see different angles.


    First attempt was to make the logo but leave the border and the one as tall grass. Prefer the top picture best

    My partner and equipment used for the 2 picture above.
    What it looked like with the stakes. Similar for the first picture above.

    Pictures taken with OnePlus 6 and compressed with YaImCo by @hennes

    Was this what you were thinking about @Impersonal ?
    Thanks OnePlus staff including @Trista W.
    @Crystal Z. @David Y. btw Our property is right on a flight path to the airport... Wondering how many people will see the logo from there?

    It's officially the 27 by Hong Kong time, so the Contest is officially over.
    The winners as I said in the first post will be selected/announced by a team of OnePlus staff, I have no power or other information regarding this process... probably it will take a while since we have such great enteries, and they are very busy, in this period, with all them lunches, launches and events, I wouldn't like to be in their shoes... I frankly personally don't care who wins, all the people here, were so, surprising, lovely, and genuine, polite, and friendly, so AWESOME folks all round, I guess I am the biggest winner since I really had a great time here, I always knew the potential of this Community, but never anticipated I will live to have such heart to heart moments anywhere, especially over the internet, yet it's been cathartic, apoteotic and heartwarming ... I will forever cherish those moments.

    I can't Thank You enough, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, to all who enabled this thread through their participation, who commented and even who lurked, you are the reason why this Community exists and it is such a lovely, and unique of a place ...
