    Hello everyone,

    to name something is to make it more of your own, to give it a sense of familiarity and proximity. As you probably read by now, OnePlus just introduced a new User Ladder here on the forums.

    If you haven’t, I strongly suggest you do so here and return to this thread after.

    OK, now that we are all on the same page, it’s time to take your creative side to the gym. The current User Ladder shares the names of its steps with the Android Updates, so it goes from Cupcake to Android Q (yes, even if the latter is officially called Android 10. I don’t know either). However, the new User Ladder also means new names.

    There are going to be seven levels and this is your opportunity to leave your personal mark on them, since OnePlus is looking for suggestions for the names of those seven levels. If you want to participate, you are already in the correct thread: you only have to reply below with your best suggestion.

    It can be something fun, something related to tech and OnePlus or not at all. Want to name them as Kubrick movies? Sure. Best Taylor Swift songs? Of course you can, @YRJ. Planets? **Pluto has left the chat**. Best Chefs? I am now hungry, but yes please. It’s your post, your suggestions. Just pick an overall theme and suggest seven names cohesively.

    To make this fair for everyone, the participation will be open until Friday, July 17, 15:00 CEST. You can make as many suggestions as you want. After that, the members who make OnePlus' five favorite suggestions will receive 30 XP (Experience Points) each as a reward. Basically, this is your first opportunity to start amassing Points. If your suggestion is picked as the new official user ladder, OnePlus will throw in an extra 170 XP, for a total of 200 XP.

    Not forgetting this is a [Hello Weekend!] thread, let’s have some fun too, shall we? I do hope you can take a little bit of time to participate as I can’t wait to read your suggestions and to check the five members who are going to get those sweet, sweet XP Points. Have a great weekend, you awesome lot. :cool:

    How about the days of the week? They'd easily translate to other languages wouldn't they?

    Considering Google liked naming their versions of Android after confectionaries, how about naming every step of the User Ladder after an ingredient in a juicy burger. Our 'cupcakes' would start off as 'patties', and so on. For example:
    1. Patty (beef/chicken/veg)
    2. Lettuce
    3. Cheese
    4. Pickle
    5. Onion
    6. Sesame seed bun
    7. Special sauce [highest level]

    Another idea you might like ties in with the theme of the Nord - the journey of finding our true North. The Big Dipper is made up of the seven brightest stars in Ursa Major ("the Big Bear") and is used to find Polaris, aka. The North Star. The stars which make up The Big Dipper are as follows:
    1. Dubhe
    2. Merak
    3. Phecda
    4. Megrez
    5. Alioth
    6. Mizar
    7. Alkaid
    Alternatively, you could go for seven "sins":
    1. singular
    2. sinister
    3. sinkhole
    4. singsong
    5. sinfonia
    6. sinecure
    7. sinusoid
    8. sinciput
    Whatever words we go for they could be alphabetical to give a clear order, or they could increase in the number of characters, e.g. start with a 3 letter word and end with a 9 letter word.

    "Another one": I'm sure we can all agree that food is simply the best thing ever, and that The Lord of the Rings series is second best..... well - what about naming the levels after Hobbit meals?:
    • Breakfast
    • Second Breakfast
    • Elevenses
    • Luncheon
    • Afternoon
    • Dinner
    • Supper

    As soon as I heard that there will be 7 steps to the new ladder, I thought why not name them after the 7 wonders of the world?

    But the problem is how will we decide which wonder takes what number? :p
    Not the best idea I've had, I'll admit. But it's still an idea. Maybe someone can add to it and improve?

    Going to throw in this to get the gears going... Famous named robots. Not specific to just films.

    Examples: Astro (Astro Boy), Rover (Mars Rover), Johnny (Short Circuit), Marvin (The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy), Bishop (Alien), Roy (Blade Runner), Hal (2001: Space Odyssey)

    Bonus: Huey, Dewey and Louie (Silent Running)

    Might be back with some other ideas. I'm sure others will think of better ones.
    Edit - re-ordered them. Hal is definitely 7.

    Hello @Cheetosdust When I look into this community it feels like a huge housing sociaty where everyone is in neighbourhood.

    In a Housing society we have the following Hierarchy

    1. The Chairman ( The ultimate authority)
    2. Vice/Joint Chairman
    3. The secretary
    4. Joint Secretary
    5. The Treasurer
    6. Joint Treasurer
    7. Managing Committee Members ( Executive body)

    We can thought of something like these names.
    The name sounds very professional. This is what I have thought of till now, Hopefully I can do some more brainstorming and get back.
