    Welcome to the OnePlus community.


    It is rather a large community. There are over 1, 771,560 1,797,788 users. Because of its size, it is nice to get to know some of the staff, moderators, and users via interviews etc. Recently, there have been several Software AMA interviews. With @Ruby G.'s help, these interviews along with a few more were aggregated to create a game for you to complete during the weekend.

    You may learn something about some staff members and moderators. Your efforts will be rewarded with a prize for the first 5 people to complete the puzzle. There is an additional level, if you solve the “secret word”, you will receive a holiday letter from the OnePlus team.

    What to do:
    1. Read the interviews below.
    2. Answer the questions and fill in the name or answer in the corresponding boxes.
    3. On the grid, there are boxes that are underlined. Enter the corresponding letter on the line to decipher the “secret word.”
      • **Bonus question.** This is extra. If you choose to complete it (write your answer on the puzzle sheet), the first person who successfully decipher the word will get a Holiday Card from OnePlus.
    4. Submit the completed puzzle via this thread.
    5. Hint: How to complete and submit the puzzle:
      1. You may edit the puzzle (.JPEG) in a photo editor program, then take a screenshot and upload it to this thread. OR
      2. You may create a note with the question number and your answer, then take a screenshot and upload it to this thread. OR
      3. You may download the file, hand write the answers (like the good ol' days), then take a screenshot and upload it to this thread.
    Yes, it is completing a puzzle... I know, I already hear the groans. But, remember the end goal: a prize for the first 5 people and a bonus prize for the person to solve the clue or the secret word. You also get to complete it on your own time throughout the weekend. Additionally, you will get to know a bit more about some of the people and OnePlus.

    I will be adding the clues and the puzzle to this thread on Friday November 23rd at 2 pm EDT (in New York, Montreal, Ottawa.)
    If you are unsure what time that is in your area, open the OnePlus clock app. Alarm settings should open, swipe towards the left and you get the world time clock. Select New York and you can calculate the corresponding time in your area.

    See you here on over the weekend. Even if others have completed the puzzle, I encourage you to still add your entry as we will be verifying the answers before the winners are announced.
