    Hey everyone,

    With July 21 and OnePlus Nord’s AR launch event growing closer by the minute, you can definitely feel the hype building up in Community. I’ll let you in on a secret (but please don’t tell @Amanda W.) – when the first pre-order vouchers were about to drop, I was distracted from my Community duties, frantically tapping the refresh button. Luckily, I was able to get one and, this week, I received something in the mail.


    For someone that has been here since early 2014, this particular launch has a certain OnePlus One vibe to it. I wonder how many of you are as excited as I am. Feel free to leave your comments below, I would love to hear it from you.

    There were other exciting things happening in HQ that aren’t Nord related, though. For a while now, the Community team has been working on a special internal project called OnePlus User Ambassadors. One thing we keep hearing from Community members is that you want to see more staff interacting with users. As a result, we started reaching out to multiple departments within the company and find those that are most passionate about our users. This week, we took one of the last steps in this process, having a session with all of those involved.

    We hope you’re as thrilled as we are about this. With this new program, we aim at an even closer connection between users and staff, so that you know the people behind the product and what drives them. You should hear more about this soon.

    The Community-related news don’t stop there. Yesterday, @Amanda W. shared a bit more about some of the gamification mechanics we’re bringing to the Community and announced a revamped user ladder [we’re looking for names here] with a big emphasis on users’ positive impact in the Community. Through these changes, we hope this will help make your time here even more interesting and enjoyable.

    Last, but definitely not least, I want to highlight the overwhelmingly positive response to Reggie’s new music video, co-created with our users and also June, a staff member with an amazing voice. We hoped to raise your spirits through this Stay Strong video and judging by your comments it was mission accomplished. If you haven’t watched it yet, you can check it below. And, if you want to know a bit more about Reggie, head over to additionmag and read his article.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get some rest for the days to come, as they will be quite intense.

    Stay safe and have fun.

    P.S. - Speaking of fun, have you been following #oneplusnordmeme on Twitter? Because if you haven't, you should! There are some great ones out there.

    Thanks @dsmonteiro for this update!
    So proud to be a part of this all, there are some great videos used! My video was picked for the MV, could not be happier!
    Just applied for the OnePlus Ambassadors program in The Netherlands, is this the same or a different program?

    Have a great weekend all and stay safe!

    To @dsmonteiro,

    Guess @Amanda W., have gave u a nice beating to skip from your duties and now you come up with a weekly covering a whole lot of things.

    Good going.. btw when you are a staff member you should be barred from entering these pre-books and contest especially when the Hype train is running on Super Speed..

    Good luck @Overzee for the NL Ambassador programme! 🤞🏻

    I'm going to assume it's different programme where it focuses on us, the user, and interacting with us whereas the OnePlus Ambassador programmes that have recently been advertised, it for focusing them, their products and interacting with them. :smile:
