    OK guys,

    Now we all saw the message that was posted regarding the loyal customers receiving invites. Yes, I am extremely happy that loyalty is being rewarded however this does not mean that OnePlus will give invites to those who troll on every thread or start pointless threads such as "what's your favourite ice cream flavour" or "what are you doing now". It is extremely irritating entering the forum and seeing that the most threads now are from newer members just trying to increase their activity level. Now, don't get me wrong I love a bit of banter however some of the things that are being posted are actually just painful to watch.

    Think about it logically, yes the announcement said that account activity is a important factor to getting an invite but I am sure that the number 1 factor is how long one has been a member and not the amount of posts. Trust me I am not loving the idea either as I have only been part here for a month but that doesn't mean I keep posting pointless threads which have been posted already 80% of times! Guys the numbers of threads have increased from 7000+ to 9000+ since the announcement and most of them are pointless!

    So please before posting use the search button to see if somebody has posted what your thinking of and for the love of god think logically, if you were to sign in and saw a thread about favourite rainbow colour how would you feel?!

    Thank You.

    Unfortunately your advice will simply be ignored they will continue to spam in the vain attempt of getting an invite despite knowing that the criteria set out by OPO would prevent them from getting one at the moment.

    What he said, it's hard to control the virus when it's well spread already. What are the chances of people reading this thread? Then what are the chances of them understanding this thread?

    Well need to start somewhere anyway

    They should have done sth like what XDA have done in the past, I don't know is it still required but back then when you make an account they make you read all these things first before allowing the user to enter the forum and post.

    I am hoping it will spread and people will acknowledge it at least

    It would be nice to see the mods crack down on the duplicated and spammy threads a bit more. The garbage to gold ratio is pretty brutal.

    I think they are lacking forum moderators, would be great if they have some but I know they are on a tight budget

    It got out of hand the second they chose an invitation system over pre-order and who agree's its simply going to get worse?
