    Friends,

    It's been awesome getting to know you all better since we started Let's Talk back in March. You all truly showed up, with inspiring wordsmithing and enthusiasm in your question answers. For the last round of Let's Talk, I will release 1-2 topics every Monday for everyone to answer. On top of this, here's a fun twist: All previous winners of Let's Talk have been invited to host their own Let's Talk topic threads. Of these, the one with the most votes (by the community and staff) when the contest ends will receive a special gift from Pete.

    To sum up how this Let's Talk round will work:
    • Everyone is invited to look for question threads around the forums (that are marked with [Let's Talk] in the title) and write a response to them as you are interested. This round of Let's Talk will end on Sunday, August 5, so get those responses in before then!
    • All responses between 300 – 1000 words long will be automatically entered in the running for leveling up in our rewards system. Doesn't matter if it’s in response to a past or current round topic. Responses over 500 words can be moved to a new thread. It helps to tag me.
    • For winners of previous rounds only: you can host one discussion topic thread of your own in the "Let's Talk Thread topics – Hosted by Past Winners" subforum (under Contests).

    Level 1: We message you thanks and send you 100 raffle points.
    Level 2: We feature you in our monthly newsletter and weekly update (Bonus: One accessory of your choice + the option to add an Avatar sticker)
    Level 3: Your post is added to our Medium with full credits and publicized on our social media channels (Bonus: Profile trophy + a swag bag of goodies)
    Level 4: Added to the Hall of Fame (Bonus: Early device access through The Lab)

    We'll announce the winners mid-August. I'll continue to update this thread with announcements and clarifications. If you'd like some inspiration to get started, check out the responses from last round's Level 3 winners, as well as those from Level 4 (Cheetosdust's entries and NeVeR_sETTLe's entries).

    Happy writing! Look forward to seeing what everyone puts together :)

In the end, we could only calculate one winner...Congratulations to @Sridhar Ananthanarayanan, who hosted "Should OnePlus expand its product portfolio..." for winning the gift from Pete!

    Hello @Ruby G.

    I already mentioned this before, but I truly believe these threads lead to something great and special - because this community already has the talent and these threads give a nudge and a stage to everyone that wants to express themselves.

    Thank you (and the team involved) once again for all this work and all the best for the second edition. The first one was amazing! :cool:

    PS: What happens if/when you press that OnePlus key? ;) :p

    This one:
