    Hey everyone,

    When @YRJ reached out to me with the idea for this thread a few months back, I thought this would be a perfect fit for the anniversary celebrations. Over the last 8 years, the story of OnePlus Community was built by personal connections, between OnePlus and the users, but, perhaps more importantly, amongst users.

    I'm sure that, for anyone that stays active in the Community, the people you meet along the way are a big part of why you log back in. That is certainly true for me, and I know it to be true for many of you as well. While many of us haven't had the chance to meet in real life, the relationships that arise from our interactions here in the Community lead to a very true form of friendship.

    This thread is meant to celebrate those connections. We're inviting you to write a heartfelt message for a postcard to anyone you came to like through this online Community. We'll select the top entries, prepare a postcard, and send it out to that user, either digitally via DM, or by post, whenever possible. What you write, is totally up to you, we only ask you to keep it under 50 words. You can choose to let the other user know your name or keep it anonymous, and you can submit up to five entries.

    Make sure you submit your entry by December 12. We'll reward all the users that submit a valid entry with 50 raffle points.

    And if you feel like the appreciation you have for someone deserves public recognition, we invite you to also drop a message in the comments below and tag that person.

    That is a very valid point I didn't consider at first. Yes, we'll notify the senders if their postcards were selected.

    Based on the feedback of several people, I'm also bumping the limit of entries from 3 to 5. I understand that many of you would love to send them out many more, but we also don't want to dilute the gesture. Just imagine if you'd send a Valentine to the whole class... ;)

    Hey everyone, Raffle Points were distributed to the valid entries. We will go through the entries and start preparing the best entries as postcards. Please bear with us, we'll send them as soon as possible.

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry for the late reply. We already selected our favorite messages and used them as references for the creative agency to design the templates for the postcards. We should start sending the virtual postcards soon, and the physical ones shortly after.

    I'm sure you can show your love for them in a more articulate way, even if it's in your own special way of showing you like someone. 😉

    No limit on the number of postcards you can submit but not sure if all of them will be made into physical cards. ;)

    No scavenger hunt but this isn't half as bad, no? :D

    Both are great. This seems to have a personal touch. But my only concern is staff will go through the messages :oops:

    What if the message is for the staff who is evaluating :D

    You have 50 words, feel free to write your mind. As long as you put your heart into it, it won't be filtered :p

    My only concern is @dsmonteiro will write one for himself from his @Not Dsmonteiro account. But unfortunately, that cannot be helped. :rolleyes:
