    Hey everyone,

    If you bought the OnePlus 7 Pro or watched one of the many unboxings available online, you may have noticed this:

    When we say the OnePlus Community is the best place to learn about your device, we truly mean it. This Community has some of the most knowledgeable and helpful users online. From the tech-savvy software tinkerer to the mobile photography guru, you can find someone that will surely know the answer to the question you have. That’s why today we’re proud to announce the Tutorials section.

    The Tutorials section aims to be your go-to place, whether you want to share knowledge or seeking it.

    How is it structured?
    Like the Photography sub-forum, the Tutorials section will be divided into two parts:
    • Tutorials Open Section – This will be where everyone will be able to post their own tutorials. We’ll keep an eye for the best and most liked tutorials, to move them to the main Tutorials forum.
    • Tutorials – This section will be where we move the threads with the best content to. You won’t be able to create your own threads here, since it’s pre-moderated. There is a pinned index thread to make it easier for you to find the contents you’re looking for.
    Disclaimer: While we have a selection process and go through the threads in this section to assure their quality, we hold no responsibility over them. Unless posted by an official forum account, these contents are user-made and the thread creator is the sole responsible for its content.

    What’s further down the road?
    Creating this new forum is only the first step. We have already found and moved some of the most popular tutorials to this section but we’ll keep on the lookout for more content that we may have missed. We hope you also help us with that task! If you find Tutorials in the wild, please report them so that moderators are able to move them to Tutorials section.

    We are also planning a few changes in the upcoming months to make contents more accessible and also provide some more incentives to those that help. This may also include Tutorial contests from time to time.

    We wholeheartedly believe that the members of this Community are its biggest strength. That’s why we’re inviting you to take part in this endeavor! Not just helping us find the already existing threads, but also creating new content and helping us reach new people by translating existing tutorials to other languages (with the creator’s permission, of course!).

    For each new tutorial that we move to the main Tutorials section, we will award its creator with 100 raffle points (50 points for translations). You can check how raffle points work here.

    We truly hope that you’re as excited as we are about this!

    Never Settle

    P.S. – We want to hear from you which topics you want to see covered in future tutorials. Please leave your comments below and feel free to be as specific as you want.

    Most certainly! Depending on the quality, they either fit in one or the other section.

    Awesome initiative! Always great to have a centralized place for people to quickly find what they need, or learn more just out of interest.

    Great idea, but people already don't look around the forums before asking questions. Hope this might be where people get used to looking instead of having a knee-jerk reaction to simply post their questions.
