    Hey guys!

    This is my very first weekly update. Since many great things have happened this week, I want to first give you a quick review, and then introduce myself and share a bit more about my first 3 weeks working here!

    Let me start with the “1st Round of most liked IDEAS” which is now out. You can check out the voted ones here! We want to thank all of you that already posted your creative ideas for OxygenOS. You can also vote on other ideas in our platform or even submit your own. Our staff members are now reviewing the top ones from the first round!

    Second, a Countdown Madness thread was held from October 9 to 13, and people showed their excitement in over 4,600 comments. 15 of them won $30 vouchers and 10 of them won OnePlus Buds Z! Review the event here

    Of course, the most exciting part of this week was the actual Launch Event! I was impressed by the 120Hz AMOLED display and the 65W fast charging technology. How about you? No worries if you missed it, watch it here:

    Here is one photo of us getting together to watch the launch event while having interesting discussions with our users in the community and on social media platforms.


    I was amused by some replies you guys gave in our Launch Event View Party thread, especially this meme, it really made me laugh loud!


    Also, 10 lucky participants were chosen to win a OnePlus USD $50 discount voucher, and @hennes was the luckiest of all, as the winner of the biggest prize, a OnePlus 8T! Congrats to @hennes! Click here to check if you are in the winner list.

    Last but not least, I got to see different kinds of Cool Motorcycles you guys posted and I'm beginning to think about getting one myself! I’m going to look as bright as him.

    If you haven’t posted your motorcycle yet and want to show it to me, here you go!

    OK, enough about this week’s news. Here's a little bit about myself and my work at ONEPLUS (actually it’s a lot :p). I joined ONEPLUS almost 3 weeks ago, and I feel warmly welcomed by both the staff here and by the users.

    The first week I joined ONEPLUS, we had a celebration for Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival and National Days. See the food and beers the company prepared for us here! Exactly, beers during working hours! How amazing life in ONEPLUS is! It shows me the great culture of working hard and playing hard here!

    Apart from this, I participated in a game and won a massage ticket! What was even more exciting is that @Zack X. & @Loren Z. each won massage tickets, too! Congrats to the community team! After the treats, we began our National Day leave. I went to Sanya with my friends and spent most of the time on a private island. See how silly I am in this photo :p (This was shot at a famous attraction.)

    Now a little bit about myself: I finished my Master's degree at George Washington University last year and before that I had many years of experience in e-commerce, working as a user operational specialist. I’m very good at “gamification” operations and can apply magic techniques to deliver diversified experiences to meet various needs of different users. I will try my best to make the community feel like an amusement park and everyone will find their own enjoyable part in this community.

    Here is something I'd like to ask you to do for me. I was given a big task a week ago, right before my leave, which I’m very excited and also anxious about. I’m going to be the designer and host of the anniversary campaign of this year. It is planned to start in December and will be the biggest campaign the community has every held, with Big Benefits and Plenty of Surprises included! I’m asking you to give me your suggestions! Tell me what you want to see in this anniversary! I might adopt your suggestions and make your wishes come true!

    Let’s make this thread a Wishing Well:)

    See you guys in the reply zone!

    It was an interesting week. For the anniversary campaign I would love to see the possibility to win limited edition stuff like merch and possibly some large tech prizes like buds and a phone. Just some ideas.

    Good luck with organising!

    Hi @Denise Y. looks like the team at OnePlus are looking after you.

    I would like to see some concept models of the 8T and previous phones, a bit more of a behind the scenes with the community team at OnePlus and raffles of old OnePlus merch from the past.
