    David Y., Dec 14, 2017 :
    Hey guys,

    Community is our home and backyard for everything about OnePlus. It can't thrive without a solid platform infrastructure that offers user-friendly features. That's why we always seek to improve and make our platform better. In order to keep our community members in the loop, we created this thread to share about all the updates regarding community platform changes. One by one, and day by day, the next optimization is always in the works.

    Name change once is a good improvement and will reduce users dependency to protect their real identity.

    It's a very good evolution! A lot of pseudo generated automatically was not very cool ;)

    Thanks for the update. It’s a welcome change since I believe it will keep us all informed about what’s going on around here.

    About the name change, hopefully it will reduce the number of threads asking for it and the workload of the mods.

    Thanks for the update @David Y.
    I've stopped using the Community App because of its many bugs and, moreover, lack of mandatory features.
    So far, I can point out two major bugs:
    1- posts are NOT editable
    2-posting pictures is... how can I say... hazardous (?)

    Thanks @pa5t1s.

    The latest Community App (Version 1.9.6) already fixed these 2 features/bugs. It'll be uploaded to Google Play Store very soon. We're trying our best to make it a much better one in near future.

    Stay tuned ;)

    Nice, I'll check it on next Google update notification.
    Does it mean that I will be unable to advise the excellent apk made by @viraaj11 soon? :p

    One more advice, stop auto suggesting username in field while creating new account. Newbies get confused & think it is default username & accept those weird usernames.
    Let them create their own
