shem_pl, May 17, 2014 : Today OnePlus officially announced that they will give invites to their "loyal" forum members (more information here) There are a few criteria that will be taken into account: 1) Your “forum age” - that one makes sense 2) Your participation - you must have a minimum amount of posts 3) Recent activity - we want our members to still be with us! This system seems to be very flawed. As long as I understand the fact that people who started spreading the excitement around OnePlus from the beginning should be rewarded... I DON'T understand why all the spammers should be rewarded for their activity. From the beginning the OnePlus forums have not been moderated properly. As a result there are over 7800 threads !!! A lot of them have been created just for the sole purpose of bumping users activity or status as a member. Why would spammers that post useless comments all over forums or those who start threads such as "are there any shisha smokers here" be rewarded? I am sure that since the announcement today there will be a lot more spamming going on. In my opinion the participation should not be taken into account. If you really want to include this criterion you should moderate your forum properly and remove hundreds of pointless threads.
