Thanks for the copy and paste without crediting to the original author.

Now I know Mi Community Singapore love to copy and paste.

@JJ: Please la, this kind of copy and paste job anyone also can do it. Do you have to praise until like no one is able to do up such FAQ's?

@"clever mod": There is lots of mistake in your FAQ which you just copy and paste blindly. I am not telling you which are the mistake, go through and find it out yourself. If not this piece of FAQ's is just a misleading FAQ's to consumer.

Hi there! Thanks so much for highlighting this issue! It's true that we refer to the content on the India Mi Community given that there is so much content there which is good & established. We definitely need to be more careful to not copy directly, and its also true that credits and permission should be sought from the original author of the thread.

I'm thankful that our intern moderators have the initiative to share these content with us as I do not push them to share such content. I've no expectations of anyone but I am grateful for intern moderators when they take initiative to share such information. However, that being said, it is definitely true that we need to do it in a more professional and accurate manner despite having initiative as it will be misleading for consumers

Until now I still never see that your moderator feel remorseful for copying other people thread directly to put it as if the thread was started by him.

Where is the credit given to the original author? Up till now I still didn't see any of it. This is why I don't look up to any of the moderator you have appointed.

Initiative is one thing. Another is copy blindly without going through all the details is a misleading of the entire thread.

Until now I don't see any professionalism in this Community so called Mi Community Singapore. Ever since the flooding gate open to those who aren't from the designated country to be here.

Lots of nonsense and irrelevant thread must be screw out if you want to hit the traffic. Else here is nothing just to let people post their rubbish and irrelevant thread as and when they like it to hit their so called credit and post count.

I really think you're just jealous.

I don't even bother about title of here. What I bother is the quality of the moderator. If a moderator can't even do a proper credit to the original author. This show that the moderator just only know how to copy and paste blindly without even bother to read.

I have been through as a moderator in both en.miui as well as Mi Community Singapore. During that point of time you aren't even born yet. You still could say I am jealous. What a joke.

If you are so good, edit and delete your entire FAQ, do up from scratch let me shut up. If not, any mistake you made I will just comment.

Else, ask your beloved JJ to talk to me personally.
