The images  captured with xiaomi devices only should be shared. Every thread should mention on Model Name of Xiaomi Smartphone used. If such mandatory information is not there, the thread will be immediately taken down without notice.

2) Make use of English
English is preferable for better interaction, communication and easy
understanding by all. Wether while replying, making a thread or posting albums, in the titles, comment while ratings etc should be in English.

3) Make Informative and Proper Threads
Adding up a few pictures in a thread should not be called a proper Album. Depicting and relating the pictures you uploaded with words, captions or with pleasant phrases or sentences which gives a good impression to the Viewer should be followed. An Album should have at least 4 photos.
It is thus recommended to give pleasant introduction about your thread. The thread should have information on camera model (xiaomi smartphone model), situation, camera app used, approaches and techniques used, tips and tricks etc ( if you want to relate any)

4) Be Creative
Creativity is writing , to communicate clearly, to express yourself fully and to be more empathetic is required. The following notes can be considered if you want to be creative :

  • A Catchy title .  Eg: Not like Redmi Note 7 Clicks , but Symmetrical Pathways or Mesmerising Patterns etc. Gibberish title threads will be taken down.
  • Caption or Description : Try to give captions, appropriate description or phrases for each and every picture you upload. Objectionable content will be removed
  • Clearity of Subject : Always be clear of on which subject or theme are you making the thread. Clear and soothy content is welcomed. Blurry images, random clicks etc will be removed.

Making use of the Advanced Mode is highly recommended in order to make sentences more colorful , hightlight points or use quotes.
Following basic formatting Should be surely considered :
  • Font size and colour
  • Content and Pictures Alignment. For Instance, Center alignment is preferable for pictures
  • Use of universal highlighters as Bold/Italic/Underline in order to highlight key points of the content
  • Use of hyperlinks if you want to attach any link. For instance, link for any previous thread/album/tutorial or of  app you want to recommend everyone. But avoid business/ promotional/ illegal links.

6) Do Not spam the peaceful environment
