    I've been here a long time. I actually got one of the earliest OPO invites and gave it away to another forum member. I was pumped and then disappointed by the OPT so I let that invite fade away. Lord knows why I even stick around, but I have really enjoyed the forum. I mainly come here just for the Tech Talk these days, still some good stuff going on there...

    Well, I did what I said I wouldn't; I used the search button :p. Only relevant thing I found was his posting that he'd drastically reduced his visits because the place had gone to ummm...hell with the release of the OP2. Only shafting I can deduce from that is him giving it to Oneplus, since, forever, he was the quasi-tech support of the forums. Dunno why I'm obsessing about this; just hate not being in on the gossip....:oops: And it must be juicy, if nobody is willing to tell me. :D

    Mike, Oct 15, 2015 :
    Thanks for being candid. I do understand some of your viewpoints; let me explain mine.
    Pinned threads: like I said, the more time you spend on the recents page, the more they will bother you. Also, the less important announcements we have, the more they'll bother you. But recall - we consider the forums the core platform of our community, and the core platform for us to communicate important things. We implemented this change because a lot of important things were going unread, and I do think that has improved significantly. For example, that thread about EU/US versions is important information - no chance that would have been constantly bumped to the top because there's nothing to discuss. It's just important info, but once your read it you know it. This is not a permanent solution, however.

    Community chat, right. I knew that was a controversial move, but like I explained in the thread when it happened - they serve a purpose to a very limited (if vocal, active and (most of the time) supportive) part of our community which, when those threads were in recents, was not very welcoming to despised "cupcakes". Mind you, several members of those threads were contacting us, complaining that there were too many cupcakes in their social threads.

    Look, I'm not married to any of this. If you can convince me I'm wrong, I'll listen. I know the mood here is sour, but I personally ascribe it to a lot of other things besides these relatively small structural changes and - trust me - there's a hundred moderators telling me every single day what they think is wrong. There's a lot of feedback flying around, to put it mildly.

    agreed. i spend at LEAST from 730am-1030am EVERY day at work in the morning. things have been getting more and more out of hand, i dont agree with everything stated in op, but most is true and could be easily fixed.

    THIS!

    There is a massive lack of respect for the community members and customers within One Plus. It's not about money or that they are " a small start-up company " its the lack of giving a shit* that is the most disturbing.

    The forum mods are only here to suck up to the devs and look at their shiny new stinkin badges.
