Who are the most fervent supporters who got the OnePlus One?

    So far this improved invite system isn't an improvement at all.

    Worst part of it is that invites aren't shareable.
    I see a lot of frustration because members are not allowed to use the gift the way they want to.

    Members want to share and help and they want to bring happiness.

    Members feel responsible for the invite.
    Feeling responsible also implies that members feel part of this community.
    Which in turn means that they feel responsible for what's going on on the forums.
    OnePlus took that away.

    Don't think we have to be psychologists to know this might cause unwanted long term consequences for the community and OnePlus.
    The happiness of sharing an invite is already replaced by negativity.
    The positive flow slowly changes in a downward spiral.
    I see it everywhere.

    I thought OP was unfair to early supporters but reading your post justs stamps it ...


    Hope OP takes note of it.

    I think that wonderful algorithm may need some tinkering...

    That's just wierd! You don't get more senior then that. o_O
    Have you been really active the last months? The algorithm might focus more on active members then early.
    The information we've received is a bit vauge:
    • Tier 2: Early supporters of the OnePlus One and active forum members

    It's not related to how long you have been supporting OnePlus. It is more to do with being active in social media, etc. supporting/promoting them. Ultimately it is about rewarding those that are doing the most to market the company or phone.

    I am a very old supporter (one of the first) but I am not active on social media and I don't post as much as others do on the forum, etc.; so I am still waiting for an invite.

    I have accepted this and understand why OnePlus has prioritized things this way. I just hope that I will still be rewarded for being a very early supporter by not having to wait too much longer.

    Best of luck to everyone in getting an invite soon.

    Part of the challenge is making sure that OnePlus is aware of all that you are doing.

    Good luck!

    You're just as vague as OnePlus.......;)

    And your statement doesn't help all the frustrated members.

    Recently got myself fooled on a website called ***********
    It was a contest on Social Networking that said that I'll surely get an invite if I I passed some steps.
    Firstly it asked me to share the link to some of my friends (min 10),
    then asked to fill out some surveys, where it asked me to download some apps etc.
    Still no Luck.
    Please help OnePlus 2

    Wow # 29 ... No Invite, OP you messed up big time with early supporters, new members even cup cakes claim to have got OP2 invite, thats ridiculous.

    Not trying to be vague but I certainly understand your point. I am simply stating that they favour the ones that promote them but they have to know about it. Not an accurate process, which is part of the reason why there are many frustrated folks. I also wanted to clarify that it was not so much about how early a supporter you are. I should know. ;)

    Until they start rolling out invites at a much faster pace, there will continue to be a lot of anxious/frustrated people and rightfully so.

    Thanks for the support. :)

    Keep in mind that they didn't say that they would go in order for early supporters (as they had last time). Also, there are lots of ways to get an invite quicker (pop up events, contests, and even the invite list). It is all muddy enough that there is no way for us to clearly state that person X should have gotten an invite before person Y.

    Ultimately we just have to be patient and wait for an invite or else we can choose to move on to another phone.

    For now, I'm choosing to be patient.

    Best of luck to you in getting an invite soon.
