    What's up wormies,

    You know what? Community got featured in OnePlus' internal newsletter yesterday with a quick introduction to the 511K comments-long thread – Wormhole. :D:D:D And when Human Resources interviewed us asking what's the biggest treasure of the community, our answer was easy – the users. We're always proud to say that we have the most friendly, most creative, most talented and most diverse group of users in the world wide web.



    We hope that more staff members from various teams can join the community to experience the fun by themselves.

    Well, let's not forget about the recent weekly highlights.

    A few official news
    First, as @Amanda W. stated earlier this week, we've updated some forums rules and refreshed the moderation team's structure. Being a regular forum user, do remember to check out the latest warning point system and let's make it a clean and cool place for everyone. These changes are just a start, we'll put more effort on optimizing the overall experience.

    @Joel Jacob launched the Red Cable Club Journal and welcomed you to share some fresh OnePlus and tech news.

    Things to do while staying at home
    • Reading
      • I always thought I didn't like reading, but the data on my reading apps proved me wrong. I finished 10 short romance novels in the past 3 months, with over 10 hrs reading time per week. Even though I forgot most of the stories right away, I still feel quited relaxed when reading. Check out @B.I.T.S. ' Books & Reading habits to find like minded friends and maybe some good book recommendations.
      • If you'd like to read more about the OnePlus 8 Series, our US Brand Ambassadors have something new for you – OnePlus 8 Series: Attention to Detail
      • If you're considering the new OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z, you can find more details in @suhantm's review.
    • (Co-)Creation
      • We've opened the door to the second online Open Ears Forums, focusing on OnePlus 8 Series' Camera, where we'll also showcase some future camera concepts and develop them together with you. Do not hesitate in applying if you are interested in having an in-depth talk with the product managers and getting such exclusive information.
      • We already have plenty of cool wallpapers from the Creative Wallpaper Contest, but we believe our talented community can bring us more. For a chance to win the exclusive OnePlus 8 Series bundle, seize the chance and release your creativity.

    • Stay Strong
      • Are you interested in getting featured in OnePlus' upcoming Stay Strong music video? Here's your chance – submit a short video of you, sharing your warm wishes with the world by May 25, 23:59 HKT. The selected will get a pair of Bullets Wireless Z.
    • Have fun with the community
      • @Cheetosdust shared a good news for some game lovers - Grand Theft Auto V is FREE on the Epic Games Store. Go get it and share your memories with the community. @luigimario took things even further and challenged users to GTA V game night.
      • Do you have a post-lockdown plan? If you don't have one yet, it's never too late. Try to update your plans in @YRJ's Hello Weekend thread, and stick to it.
    Alright, that should wrap the week, feel free to leave your comment in this thread if I missed anything. And happy weekend!

    Yayyy I think its the second time ever(?) that the wormhole is featured in an weekly update. But with half a million messages- that's if I calculated correctly an message every five minutes!! Can that even be true :eek::eek:
    The guys wrote a lot lot lot in 2015

    Nice! Love seeing my wall :D

    Wanted to join but its not a priority rn, but its a great contest and I think there will be amazing results from that!

    Great Weekly @Crystal Z.. !

    Woohoo... Wormhooligans... !!! ;)
    congrats to the 500k... :D

    And Heja @Ruby G.

    Bitmoji Weekend Fun Groupfie got an overwhelming 3 pics in the slide...
    Thanks to @buntycubal, @TibiTibi, @the_o2, @script, @Shivang Joshi, @Starcommander, @G_plusone and everyone else I forgotten for keeping this gem alive... :)

    The fun continues never stops... :D

    I wonder if "Guess the Pic" is still going...

    Guess who didn't get notification for a very long time... ;)

    But there's one thing I don't like...
    The text based Weekly title pics..

    It was better when some community members Photo was shared.. Way easier to notice that there's a new weekly...
    And 15 minutes of fame for some lucky member... :D

    Now it's just Letters and numbers, that's kinda sad... :(

    OnePlus don't care we need to flood them with bugreport and feedback! this is unacceptable for such priced phone, when my Mi10 from China works out of box with VoLTE this doesn't even work when I buy from OnePlus directly in Singapore...this company failed at making a phone work at a phone call. anyone official can comment ?
