    Hi,
    I know most of us (new users) use the community app instead of OnePlus forum website...
    And still don't know it that well...
    This is a two part thread, which will teach you how to utilize the app perfectly and efficiently...
    This is part one and will only cover the basics...

    Let's start with the start...

    Main page:
    So on top of main page, you'll find 4 options...

    PicsArt_01-20-10.02.16.jpg

    1. Options/Sections - Here you can view your profile or switch between various sections of the forum...
    2. Notifications - Here you'll find all your recent notifications...
    3. Sort - As name suggests, it can help you sort the forum...
    PicsArt_01-20-10.40.03.jpg
    4. Search Bar (invisible to many...)- You can search a user or a thread here (which should always be used if you are observing any issue)...

    Other than that, you'll find recently pinned threads (regarding updates and other announcements) on top and below that all the other threads (arranged as per the sorting method selected by you)...

    And the bright red "Create Thread" button on bottom right...

    (just a short cut, inside each section, the section name is visible on top all the time... eg., Home, Announcements, Contests, etc... So if you want to go back to the top at any given time, just double click the "Section Name"... Suggested by @Cheetosdust and @idkwhoiam322...)

    Options:
    Here you'll find few things like...

    PicsArt_01-20-10.05.37.jpg

    1. Personal informations...
    2. Different sections...
    3. View all...

    After clicking any section, you'll find "more pinned" option, which after clicking will show you all the pinned threads under that section... Do read those, as those are quite important threads...
    Other than that you'll find all the other threads opened in that section...

    Now this "view all" is quite helpful... Select that option and you'll be presented with a list of sections (which you can either add in your options list (1) or remove from your options list(2))...
    PicsArt_01-20-10.08.10.jpg

    I'll discuss "personal information" a bit later...

    Threads:
    Now on top of each thread, you'll find these things...

    PicsArt_01-20-10.12.45.jpg

    1. Original Poster (OP in short...)
    2. Section (where the thread was opened...)
    3. Search icon (same as the main search bar...)
    4. Notifications...
    5. Options...

    Let's talk about options now... So when you click the 3 dots on top right of any thread... You'll get 3 options...
    Mark: It's used to bookmark that thread for easy access...
    Share: To share the thread on social media...
    Report: To report the thread... (duh)

    As soon as the subject/body of the thread is over, you'll see 3 more things...

    PicsArt_01-20-10.14.48.png

    1. Post/reply count...
    2. Page number...
    3. Like...

    So if you find a thread which is quite long and you want to read the latest posts in that thread, just click on the page number and scroll it to the last page and click on done... (you can use this to jump into any page you want...)
    PicsArt_01-20-10.15.28.jpg

    Clicking on like will show your support for that thread... (duh)

    In each post as well you see few things...

    PicsArt_01-20-10.17.51.jpg

    1. Post number...
    2. Options...
    3. Like...

    Here if you'll click on Options, you'll get...
    Reply (Use this to keep things organized and notify other user...)
    +Quote (for multi quoting...)
    Report (to report the post...)

    Your Profile Page:
    Most of the things here are self explanatory... So I'll just tell you the important ones...

    PicsArt_01-20-10.36.25.jpg

    1. My Bookmarks (this will show you all your bookmarked threads...)
    2. Notification Settings (this will let you choose what kind of notifications you want to see...)
    PicsArt_01-20-10.39.11.jpg

    You can also see an option there called Conversation... Click on it to start a Direct Message (or DM with someone...)
    In there you'll find these options...

    PicsArt_01-20-10.37.02.jpg

    1. Add participants... (you can add multiple participants as well...)
    2. Title (of the conversation...)
    3. Your message...
    4. Send button...

    You can also do this by clicking on someone else's profile and then clicking on Conversation there...
    PicsArt_01-20-10.20.11.jpg

    To view your conversations, click on notification and select conversation tab there...

    There you go again @Carl, spamming the forums just for likes. :p Good effort though, these are going straight to my repertoire of links and other assorted copypasta. Thanks.

    I've seen it too...
    Even when people say they didn't edit the wrong tag... (as its common for me...)
    Guess this issue is with the forum...

    Lol okay thanks point taken.:rolleyes: I try not to tag someone unless I'm looking to get their attention.

    Is that account even real though?o_O A suspicious portion of the users he follows are beautiful young women if it actually is his account.:confused::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:
