    Hello everyone,

    To ensure the continued growth and evolution of the forums and community, we will be revamping the current user ladder and trophy system. The primary objective is to help users better utilize the points they receive for being a helpful and active member of the community.

    The trophy and points system will be modified to give users more options when accruing points. The original system was all about getting post and likes, and while it kept things ticking along, it was kinda boring. The user ladder will continue to use the same system, but we wanted to introduce new and improved ways for you to be able to show off your accomplishments. Along with the normal user ladder, we will be adding both leveled and unique trophies based on things like the amount of time you have been on the forums, the amount of messages or likes you've received, answered a lot of questions, and if you've helped at a pop up or won a big contest.

    You will be able to show up to 3 trophies at any given time to show off your accomplishments to others. Proud that you've posted 50,000 times, received 200,000 likes, or helped others by being selected as the giver of a best answer? So are we, and now you can show it off to everyone else.

    What are all these points going to be used for? We’re introducing a new raffle page. Periodically, we will offer swag, store gift cards, and the occasional bigger prize. You can then use the points that you’ve accumulated through the new trophy/point system to enter into each contest. Each raffle will have a varying entry cost depending on what we are giving away.

    To make all of this possible, we will be changing the way the trophy system works over the next few days. We will start by removing the old trophy system completely. Did you notice that all of your trophy points have disappeared? Don’t freak out, because everyone will have zero trophy point for a little while. In the next phase, we’ll add all of the new trophies (Over 60 different trophies will be introduced during the first stage, and expect more to be be added soon). After we’ve added the new trophies, user ladder, and points system, the next time you refresh your page on the forums, the backend will assign you your new trophies and usable points. Shortly after, the raffle system will be activated. (I’ve got some swag for you guys to test it out with.)

    Points/trophies can be gained in these ways:

    1. Initial transfer to the new system
      1. The new trophy system will reference past accomplishments when determining the amount of points and trophies to assign to users.
    2. Leveling up on the user ladder
      1. We are reworking the user ladder, expanding upon it with new user levels and reworking the way levels are acquired. User levels will no longer be based on trophy points, but will now depend exclusively on a user’s message and like counts. We’ve also changed the requirements for each level to make it a more even progression. The new user ladder is posted below.
    3. Meeting certain requirements to gain a unique trophy
      1. Helped at a OnePlus event
      2. Helped launch a device
      3. Won a big OnePlus Contest
      4. Recognized Developer
      5. We will be adding more all the time...
    4. Posting daily
      1. Users will be awarded points based on the number of daily posts shared. 1 point will be awarded for every 5 posts shared in a day, up to a maximum of 5 points, which is equal to 25 total posts. After that, you are still free to post but will accrue no further points, there is also a character threshold you will need to meet for the posts to count.
    5. Helping with answering user questions
      1. We introduced the best answer feature to showcase people who help the community. Starting with the update, that will come with a reward. You will get points every time you provide the best answer to someone's question in the general support section. If you are the poster of the original question, and you select a best answer, you will also be rewarded points.
    6. Negative points
      1. If anything is reversed or deleted, awarded points may be taken away.
      2. If you are warned or banned for breaking rules, points will be deducted for the same amount as your warning. (Starting after the new system goes online)

    Negative points will surely bring some discipline in the forum. Much needed.
