    I have only heard of 1, out of 60, on the reviewer list. As such, @meatandy you will be the only one getting my vote. You are the only active member that I recognize. Good luck pal :).

    Thanks Doc..
    I only wish everyone could have made it to the next round.

    Best of luck to the other 59.

    I just wish to have seen more known members. I knew my shots were slimmed. However, I doubt that these (excluding yours) are the best applications they had with 10,000 submissions. Nevertheless, glad to see you on the list :).

    You do realize you can easily verify this by actually reading what these unknown names have written, right? Either you find that some of these chosen 59 (excluding Andy) did actually deserve to get picked, or you will confirm your suspicion that the finalists were picked at random.

    This approach, incidentally, has the added benefit of serving the intended purpose: to read the essays that were written and actually participate in the process.

    And nope, I probably would not read 60 essays of minimum 500 words when there was nothing in it for me either ... Vote for me if you would like me to take this up at our next "Secret Meeting" ;)

    Wow, what a surprise...
    Not one Australian chosen in the top 30!
    Just like how they don't ship to us!

    Well I guess they thought my entry wasn't good enough. Too bad, I was going to do a written review, youtube video review, and an AMA on the forum. Guess those people that aren't even part of the community will get to review it though.

    Super excited and hyped to get selected.Im one of those people who haven't been present on the forums but got selected. I appreciate the displeasure of members who believe that people who are part of the community should be given preference but as pointed out earlier, it is of utmost importance that the reviewers cater to all use cases and not just ardent fans of the company. Also, we should also get a chance to start being part of the community at some point of time and I think this is it for me. Please go through my article. You might find something that makes you think that I deserve to give a hand in the peer review. Thanks in advance. https://oneplus.net/in/lab/candidates/candidate?user=bfaa33ed277a8ac850a108d270cf8fb012cff918

    you know, I tried searching for some users to see their posts on the forum......but I cant find them !
    either they have never wrote a post (which should not be true since they have trophies) or they are :rolleyes:

    Hmmm....so having to make an essay in 500+ words people have to vote/share if they want to be chosen to be a reviewers now?
    when i look at the candidates list, i feel a bit disappoint as too many candidates selected from the same country....wouldn't it be much more nicer if those candidates comes from different country (or at least 2 from the same country in the 60 candidates) before narrow it down to 30? one reviewers for each country is the best way to get a good reviews especially regarding network performance and etc...

    I have voted for more than one too... Of course I voted for myself, but there where also a couple of others I thought should have the chance and I didn't mind 'losing' to :)
