    Hallo, everyone! This is your favourite host of the WIR and on this lovely Sunday let’s go through this rather quiet week’s hits on the forums.

    New home, new OnePlus?
    As the PR head told us, OnePlus had now completely shifted operations to the Pen(is) shaped building. They also uploaded a video on YouTube with Pete saying some typical CEO buzzwords, although some of the early staff's words did strike a chord with some community members.
    Daniel, our very own duck-human, also shared a sneak peek of the new Brainstorming room, where online OEFs usually took place.
    Will be interesting to see how staff adjust to the new work environment and how it will affect OnePlus.


    Paralympics end

    As one of the contests with the highest engagement this year, the Tokyo Games medal guessing contest came to an end today with the culmination of the Paralympics. Close misses and disappointment marked the first phase, but with several countries on 9 medals going into today, excitement ran high. Eventually, Spain and Turkey managed to stay on 9 Gold and 9 Bronze medals respectively and South Korea winning a Silver to go to a tally of 10.
    This contest wasn’t without its funny moments though, as users continued to guess even after the deadline and their guesses were legendary too, naming USA, Japan and China who had all already crossed the 9 medal mark a while back. One user even decided to name Tokyo.

    Well..:rolleyes:

    Beta 6 appears out of nowhere.
    When a Beta channel receives no updates for 4 months, surely it would be safe to assume the Beta has ended, right? Nah, says OnePlus.

    After 4 months of speculation and assumptions from users (including me) that Open Beta for the original Nord had ended with no clear communication from OnePlus, Beta 6 for the Nord suddenly showed up yesterday on users’ devices and appeared be a mirror image of the 11.1.5.5 update for the Nord.
    Well, as they say, OnePlus is full of surprises:rolleyes:.

    We know why Carl left OnePlus

    Shh! Don’t tell anyone, but we have learnt from reliable and highly placed sources in the company why Carl Pei left OnePlus. Rift with Pete? Nah. The company heading in a different direction? Nah. Threads are being closed on the forums? Absolutely! This is the reason why Carl left, he couldn’t bear to see so many threads being closed.
    :oops:

    OnePlus forums: perfect grocery listing platform
    Well, we all know the ways in which OnePlus uses these forums as a marketing tool, but now they can add a new feature! Don’t have an ex that has blocked you on WhatsApp?
    No worries, just create a thread here!
    That’s right, a user actually had the audacity to create a thread titled “Saman” meaning “Items” and listing his grocery list for the day.
    (It’s in Hindi, so I took the liberty to make an English version)

    However genial this user was, it wasn’t enough to beat our Genius of the Week.

    Genius of the Week
    The man who uses the merge button like his own personal slave, the close button like a whip, yes, I’m talking about our very own Kim, @pablofg1978. ( He’s probably writing the closing thread message as he reads this).
    Jokes aside, Pablo’s genius credentials were brought to focus by this user who labelled him as a cousin of Kim because of a thread he’d merged.
    upload_2021-9-5_13-21-51.png
    A few days later, he also created a thread on how to deactivate his account (he still hasn’t done it btw) and accusing Pablo Kim of “bullying”. Well, I agree with our resident nice member @Tobikage here:
    Among Other News:
    ColorOS12 is leaked to be released on 13th of September, so since OxygenOS12 will be on the same codebase, its release shouldn’t be long after. OnePlus China has also released ColorOS12 timeline for their devices, with the 8 series scheduled to get it in Q1 next year, while the 7 series will get it in the second half. I also expect OnePlus Global to have similar timelines for the 8 and 7 series, so those who were expecting the 8 series to get OOS12 this year, not happening bro.

    That’s it

    This is all we that have for this week, but I’d like to conclude with an announcement that we welcome @BeingIncog to the WIR team, who will help us in writing and bringing us content.
    As always, tag me, @B_Wrath, @SJBoss , @Tokolozi @BobbyV8_ and @BeingIncog if you feel something should be included here.
    Merci and have a great day!

    I don’t know if that guy deactivated his account, it takes a month before it gets deactivated, not sure if in that period his account shows that it’s deactivated.

    @BeingIncog , congratulations on joining the UWIR team
