    Howdy folks!
    This is your favorite host, back with another edition of the much loved, Unofficial Week In Review! As you might have noticed from the header, we have an official logo now! All credits to @BobbyV8_ and his hardwork and constant iterations, with a shoutout to @rohitanand for the original inspiration. This month is off to a cracker of a start with it’s first week, and there is a lot to discuss, so…

    The Elephant in the Room

    No, I’m not talking about me, stop assuming stuff.:rolleyes:
    December is finally here, and you know what comes with it. That's right, it's OnePlus’ Anniversary month, meaning they decide to be generous and hand out goodies to us forum peasants.
    They decided to name the celebration "Bold and Boundless" this time, probably couldn't decide on anything specific, so why not just theme it to be something abstract, right?:rolleyes:
    While we don't have too many hints about what's ahead, very obvious clues have been dropped that the RP exchange raffles will make a comeback this year.
    They have also decided to do a day by day throwback to OnePlus devices of the past, three have been covered at the time of publishing this thread, you can read all about that here.

    What else? His Majesty, The Community Consultant dsmonteiro posted a forum thread, asking us if we'd like to send actual postcards to someone on the forums, to appreciate everything they do. Wonderful idea, let's see how the execution goes. I personally will look forward to seeing the postcards when the users receive them, if they decide to post them publicly.
    PS: DSM is secretly going to read all your personal letters, be careful about what you write.:oops::rolleyes:

    Alright, that's too much free PR for OnePlus, moving on...

    No pix in DMs
    You heard that right, attaching images is no longer allowed in Forum DMs on the web as well as on the app, due to reasons unknown as of now. You can still copy paste or link pictures on the web version though.
    Anyways, did you use this feature much? Do you welcome this move or are unaffected? Let us know in the replies.

    Genius of the Week:

    This user gets GOTW because he thinks OnePlus cheated him. How did OnePlus cheat him? They gave him a Nord 2 device with only a 16MP main sensor instead of a 64MP one. Our GOTW came to this conclusion by looking at inaccurate data from a third party app.
    Perfect qualities for a genius, right?:rolleyes:
    Anyways, kids, here's what you need to know about pixel binning.

    Among Other News:

    Portugal makes it illegal for employers to contact employees outside working hours: Seems like a great move, doesn't it? No more calls on Sunday mornings from your boss! If only the rest of the world followed suit, but I think we're more likely to see a UWIR on time from @SJBoss than this happening in the rest of the globe:rolleyes:
    I know two people one person who who'd be very happy with this decision.

    Microsoft is Jelly:

    upload_2021-12-5_13-11-2.png

    One of the very few times I opened MS Edge,do you know what I used it for? To download Chrome. Apparently so did many others, and Microsoft got concerned enough to run pop-ups about how "That browser is so 2008" and “Microsoft Edge runs on the same technology as Chrome, with the added trust of Microsoft.” This almost seemed like a joke at first, but it's the reality all right. All I can say is:
    [​IMG]

    Some UWIR updates:
    You remember when in one of the weeklies SJ asked if any of you wanted to join us and write with us? Shame on you traitors, we didn't get one proper applicant. Well, except @dsmonteiro, but we had to reject him because he's too high maintenance Anyways, I have an announcement to make, @rohitanand has joined the UWIR team and will help us with headers and other illustrations. Welcome Rohit, everyone.:D
    Onto more exciting stuff. You also remember SJ mentioning something about games, points, and stuff for you to win? While I still can't share too much (sorry, TOP SECRET stuff), I can tell you we are working hard on making it all go as smoothly as possible, and I think it is going to be a lot of fun. I can also tell you something else: it's coming next week! So stay tuned and make sure to participate in whatever we decide to do. It's the least y'all can do:mad:
    This also *might* be the last UWIR of the year, but don't you worry, a look at the poll will tell you we have something else going on the meanwhile, so be sure to vote on the poll.

    Ok, we're done.
    That's all I have for you this week. I hope you enjoyed the read.
    Remember to tag or DM the usual suspects @BobbyV8_ @B_Wrath @SJBoss @BeingIncog @Tokolozi @Shivang Joshi @rohitanand or me.
    (This list is getting tiresome to type now).
    Goodbye.

    Favourite host huh, think someone needs to stop taking the happy pills 😝🤣.
    Once again an excellent UWIR writeup by @McJader and please folks do remember to check the Pixel binning link, just to ensure you don't appear as a UWIR Genius of the future.

    This. 👇
    We had a fair share of abusive images being reported. Since we can't see the full extension of the issue, only what's reported, we decided to take the cautionary approach.
