    Hi friends,

    For the past two weeks or so, we've been building the anticipation for this day. We've recapped past events, teased you with the prizes you can win, and play games that help you win them. This month is focused solely on you.

    Thanks to you, we're now a family of nearly 4 million breaking boundaries, time zones, and language barriers. Today, on our 7th Anniversary, we celebrate some of you that excelled in your participation in this Community throughout this trying year.

    We're also premiering a new gear product – our brand-new OnePlus Urban Traveler Backpack, and unveiling our co-created Community Jacket.

    So, without further ado, I'd like to invite you to watch our 2020 Community Awards ceremony, celebrate the Community together with us and be among the first to see our new Community swag.

    We know there are countless other users who have contributed in a meaningful way to make the Community a better place. That's why we're inviting you to show some appreciation and tag those that you believe have left their mark in 2020's Community history.

    We're also aware that some of you are still trying to get more raffle points for that special prize you want. So, we're rewarding the thread participants with much-needed RP:
    • When replies reach 1000: each one gets 50RP.
    • When replies reach 2000: each one gets 100RP.
    • Once we reach the 1217th reply, we will randomly give 500 RP to one of the users participating.
    If you see your name on the Community Awards winner list, please feel free to share your thoughts about receiving the award!

    We hope you enjoyed the 2020 Community Awards and our brand-new Community Jacket and Urban Traveler Backpack. However, there's one more exciting announcement in store. Check Pete's Twitter account on December 21 to know more.

    Thanks very much for the Community Hero award. Just made my day. And well done to @YRJ @Tokolozi @SoniaB @drl431 @Dresa91 @Artemus. @Swejuggalo @Cakepips @TibiTibi and the many others who won today.

    But today everyone is a winner, as you have a great bunch of people out there prepared to add to the experience.

    And I can't accept this award without mentioning the help of @ironass @B_Wrath @rhyd1am @ItsRavi25 @Auristic @dashxdot and many more who have helped me when I needed it too.

    P.S. My username Caomhin is pronounced Kweeveeen. It's the Irish, ás Gaeilge, translation of my name. It should have been Caoimhin. But I left out the i when typing it initially.

    Anyway, thanks everyone and have a happy holiday and new year. 🍺🎄👍🏻👍🏻

    Hi, thanks for the award guys,
    Previously user of the year 2018 and now Community Scholar wow, never expected that.

    In 2018 never thought this community will become my second home, logging each day to see what's going on to becoming a part of it....

    As Captain Script says " it is not a community forum it a global friend maker".
    So keep helping others
    Stay safe and healthy
    And Never Settle!

    Thanks again 🙏🏻❤️

    Wow @Amanda W. that video really was something!
    Where do I start and what do I say?

    I truly am at a loss of words. For the first time in forever, @camohan is absolutely right, I have indeed lost my senses. This is unreal.

    I do not want to bore you with another TL;DR post but hear me out...
    Some X years ago when I joined this community, imploring @Crystal Z. to pick me as a lab reviewer, little did I know that I would stay here, let alone be picked as a “hero”! I'm amazed and humbled by the love I've received.

    My journey on the forums has been far from smooth, but I truly am grateful for ever minute I've spent here and thankful to every user I've met along the way. You people make this community special!

    Honestly, this award isn't mine, it's every user who has helped me, every mod that went easy on me and every staff that has been patient enough to listen to my nonsense, I owe it all to you! The tags, the appreciation, the nominations and everything else it fills my heart with joy.

    It would be remiss of me to not mention @dsmonteiro, the seriously funny portuguese cromo, here. Say what you want, but he is the backbone of the community (and a genius!) blurring the lines between users and staff members, you sir have my undying love and respect.

    Lastly, a massive shoutout to @Leo X. , @Loren Z. and @Zach X. for making the 7th anniversary event an unforgettable one!

    Not all heroes wear capes some wear sweaters.

    Although it is a small word, all I can say is THANK YOU!
    Congratulations to all other users who have won today, you deserve it all.

    Much love <3

    I have finally seen the awards myself and WOW.
    I really needed some uplifting positive stuff. From some really bad news at work yesterday since a coworker quits (more weight on my shoulders) and getting some amazing positive stuff today 😊

    I can only say thank you to the community and all of it's members (even those that argues with me and disagrees and yells at me 😉).

    Thank you to Oneplus for offering products that interests me and makes me want to help out in every way possible and make it even better.
    I'm a constant beta user because I want the challenge of finding and reporting bugs, testing out new features, replicating other users issues whenever possible (have some apps installed only for that reason). This is what makes it fun. Call me crazy... But even after several 150h long logs and not being able to replicate an issue it just wants me to find it even more. And sometimes the stubbornness rewards me with finding a way to replicate within 5 minutes 😋 Both rewarding and feeling stupid for not finding it earlier.

    Helping out here is an important part of my daily activities. If I'm not here at all a day you can be pretty sure some really, really, serious thing has happened. So let's hope I'm here EVERY day 😉
    I do my very best to help out and be nice and friendly to everyone.
    Getting rewarded for it is a huge bonus. But I would do it even if I'd never get any reward too 😊

    Thanks again.

    Well, I think I've calmed a bit more to make an official speech...
    *Clears throat, taps mic* said:
    Firstly congrats to all my fellow awardees: @Dresa91 , @Some_Random_Username , @Swejuggalo , @M1527571134641 , @Ujjwalprashar , @Areyouanand , @YRJ , @Tokolozi , @pillow35 , @the_o2 , @TibiTibi , @Mr. BG , @drl431, @oytoch , @philos64 , @SoniaB , @Artemus. and @Caomhin ! You deserve your dedicated awards, especially after this year!
    Secondly, hopefully I'll get all your usernames right/not forgotten anyone, thanks to @Ryan_Fenwick , @dsmonteiro , @Crystal Z. , @Donna L. , @Xi Z. , @Cassius N. , @Pete , @Leo X. , @Loren Z. And all the staff at OnePlus for putting on this anniversary events and awards ceremony (and even more so working round this year's madness). Also, lovely to see @Trista W. pop up!
    Special shout to @Waffle Toaster , who was the one who alerted me and said I should do the Jacket Competition. Wouldn't be here still today if he hadn't... (You really need to up your game now bro though. 😂)
    And lastly, thank you to YOU the community. This year has been tough with the pandemic , lockdowns and much more. I have only been on the forums for a mere 6 months and yet it has felt like years with wonderful people across the world (that could be the lockdown talking though, ha). Hopefully we'll finally meet offline once the world becomes more... Settled (I have a VIP ticket with my name on it, just sayin').
    But until then, may your world be safe, kind and wonderful.
    And as always: Never Settle friends.
