Hello Mi Fans,

Welcome you to our Chill Zone Tech Section. Before you begin to make any new post, please read the mechanics on how to post here:

Many of us just copy the content from other website and paste it in the forum where most of them looks so bad, filled with back links and different fonts. People would like to read any news or article if its looks clear and understandable. If you want more response from audience you need to make thread look clean and clear.

Its good if you write threads on your own words. And its highly recommended to write news threads on your own words. But if you are copying from any site then the better way is after copying the content paste it on notepad and then paste on the forum thread.

Let me show you how!

Let's take an example. This is a topic you want to post on the forum.

  • Copy the content you want to post. After Copying open notepad and paste the content into notepad.

  • After pasting the content on notepad copy it again then go to the thread which you are creating and paste the content into the thread.

  • Paste the content into the thread and it will look like the below image.

  • Viola! You have learnt how to copy content now it's time for you to learn how to add source link to the thread. First, Type "Source" after your thread is completed and then select it and click on the Add linkoption. Check the image below.

  • When you click on it, it will show a pop up and it will ask to add the source link like in the below image.

  • Copy the link of the site from which you are copying the content of the thread and paste it in the thread and press submit so the "Source" text will be hyperlinked.

  • The last thing is to post the thread which you all know how too!

Some important notes:

1. Highlighting main points of the in the thread:

Not all read the whole news, so its better to highlight the main points of the news. Better to use red color to highlight.

2. Font sizes, font colors:

Font sizes really matters, if you choose a perfect font size then thread looks really nice. I use font size 3 and it looks decent. Unless its a main heading or a title no need to use font colors. If a thread looks more fancy like full of font colors it wont look good, so it's better to use font color just for main headings and titles.

3.Titles and headings:

We have many ways to show the title to look good. To show a sentence as a heading or title we can bold that sentence or increase the font size and add some good font colour to it and this is the simplest way.

Rules to know before posting any thread

  • You are not allowed to post any advertisement or promotional content. Such threads will be deleted and warning will be issued.
