    Carl, Jun 25, 2014 :
    Our early supporters are the reason we're here. They've been helping us spread the word for months, and believed in us at a time when others did not. Thanks guys! :cool:

    In July, we will be focused on early supporters in a big way. We've gotten our components in place and raised our production yield rate. It's the first month in which we'll have significant production volumes, and it's about time we hook our early members up.

    Before we continue further, I'd like to clear something up. I've seen people making guesses about our shipments, oftentimes to make a certain point. These guesses have way underestimated the amount of devices we've shipped. In any given community, the vast majority are passive. Our active members are only a small slice of a bigger whole.

    We will use small portion of our July production for some existing customers to give away, and we'll use a very small part on contests to make sure that early supporters who didn't sign up also have a chance to purchase our product.

    What's an early supporter? Previously, we would include activity and other metrics in the mix in determining this. This time, it's all about registration date. Going by registration date means that there will be a lot of people whose accounts aren't active, which is why the early supporter invites in July will last 24 hours. As they expire, the next people in line will get them.

    We'll start sending early supporter invites out on July 7, and continue throughout the month. If you're an early supporter, you might want to whitelist account@oneplus.net to make sure that your invite does not get lost in the spam folder.

    PS @Carl, are you working on the site for the issues when ordering the One? Or shall I send a PM to you?

    Nice...congratulation to all early supporters you all deserve it :D Although I guess im not getting an invite :(

    And great as your giving out invites by registration date all those inactive people will come online just for the invite and go away after they have the invites...while others still wait :/

    Thank you @Carl for this update. I guess the question here that most of us well-know member have is, what would you considered early supporter to be or rather registered by what date?

    What does this mean?
    How small is "small portion of our July production"?
    Does it respect that "(y)our production pace is planned to pick up starting next this week"?

    Thanks for the update. So, it will actually begin in July.

    It, still, isn't explained what an early supporter is - e.g. what the cutoff date is-, but I hope to get an invite by that time, for real, and that the screen problems would have been solved by then.
