    We’re in the middle of May, and as promised, we’ll release our first major batch of invites Soon™.

    We’ve planned two upcoming contests for you to win one or more invites for the 64GB Sandstone Black version of the One. As always, we welcome all of our fans to participate in our events and share the excitement with as many as possible - whether you’ve just joined us or if you’ve been with us for a while.

    We also want to show our gratitude to those early believers that have supported us from the beginning. So we’re giving invites to some of our earliest members to buy the 64GB version of the One. Without their encouragement and invaluable feedback, we honestly couldn’t have made it this far. We certainly wouldn’t have made this big of an impact.

    Our system will automatically allocate invites based on these three parameters:
    • Your “forum age” - the earlier you joined our forums, the higher you will be ranked
    • Your participation - you must have a minimum amount of posts (it’s less than what you think!)
    • Recent activity - we want our members to still be with us!
    With this invite, you’ll finally have the chance to buy the phone you’ve been waiting for: the One. We want to protect the rights of our users and avoid accidentally creating a second-hand invite market, as such you’ll have 24 hours to make good use of your invite. If you decide not to use it, we will pass it on for you to the next person in the queue.

    The most active users hang out with us on our forums a lot, so we’re not worried that you will miss out on your invite. Nevertheless, do stay tuned and keep an extra eye on your inbox!

    EDIT: Update regarding when the invites will start to be handed out here -> http://forums.oneplus.net/threads/behind-the-scenes-invites-are-coming.21563/

    Nice one finally an important announcement. The only thing that worries me though is that you take "how active the users are on the forums" into account. The forums were never moderated properly and a lot of threads are just useless.

    They were created just to bump individual users statuses. Since when is spamming rewarded?

    Should be based on number of "likes". That would mean you're actually posting good stuff...not just spamming.
