[Discussion] Photography Section Rules and Regulations [READ BEFORE POSTING!]

Hello Mi Fans!
As you guys know, I’m a die-hard fan of good photography. I feel that the photography section in this forum is one of the most important section of the Mi Community. Inspired from the other photography clubs of other countries, I’ll be slowly setting up the Mi Community Photography Club of Philippines in our PH forum!

In case if you're New to Mi Community, be sure to check this out Philippines Content Policy in Mi Community first

Users must adhere to the following Forum Rules:

1) To use only English as the main language for communication
I cannot emphasise this enough, please only use English in this forum. This is for the convenience of other users to understand what you are posting. I understand that there are many other users outside Philippines, or using local dialects, you guys are definitely welcomed in our forum, but we do suggest to use English. I will delete the threads and comments without any warning should they not be in English. You may want to refer to the Mi Communities in other countries if you are more familiar and comfortable with the language there (Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand etc)

2) To be Informative and detailed in your threads
As much as possible, try to provide users a context of your photos! Tell us where it is taken, how you felt about your photo, possible points of discussions about Xiaomi Camera – in which condition it performs well or not, your favourite features about Xiaomi Phone Cameras. Using a short caption will really give a good content to users! Do share how you took the photo, if there is any photography techniques or editing that you have used in your photos!

When posting, we do suggest to comment the details of your photo in the reply section when sharing your photos in the Mi Community:

If sharing a photo:
Mi Title:
Short title of your photo, similar to the title of your thread
Mi Preset:
If a lightroom preset has been applied, indicate the title and author of the preset
Mi Device:
A Xiaomi phone you used
Mi Description:
Your short caption about your photo, you may indicate the location of the photo, photography techniques or editing applied
IG: If you are active on Instagram, you may indicate it here. Otherwise, any platform you are active so that you can be recognized :)


If sharing a tutorial
Mi Title:
Short title of your tutorial
Mi Tools:

Share what are the tools you used!
Share with us how you did it :)
IG Link:
If you are active on Instagram, you may indicate it here. Otherwise, any platform you are active so that you can be recognized :)


3) Squeeze your creative juices!
Creativity is what increases the chances that people will look at your threads! Try your best to give a catchy title to your thread (not like photos from Redmi); they shall include but not be limited to examples such as ‘My Weekend Paranakan Food-Get Away’, ‘Inventive Symmetrical Pathways’

4) To dress up your thread!
Making use of the Advanced Mode is highly recommended for a person who not only wants the viewer to look for the pictures but expects him/her to examine each and every detail.
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 a app you want to recommend everyone

5) Not to spam the peaceful environment
Creating unnecessary threads/albums or off topic posts non-related to this section or to reply anonymously and non-meaningful comments comes under Spamming.

6) No Nudity, Profanity, Racism and Swear words.

Such acts will be taken in series recommendation and will be dealt accordingly. It's better not to and refrain yourself from making any such move in the section. Such threads will be deleted immediately and users will be banned without warning.

7) Sales and Advertising:
UUnder any circumstances, users are not allowed to post advertising links or to promote any kind of association. If you're here, this is definitely not the right place which will encourage your promotions and Advertising skills. Such posts will be deleted without notice and a warning will be issued straight away as well as the violation will be recorded. In Serious cases, spammers will be banned as soon as possible. Such posts will be deleted without notice and a warning will be issued. Further violation of such rules will result in the user being banned.

8) Not to insult or disrespect any opinions within a thread
The Mi Community is a forum where members respect each other opinions with respect. Making unnecessary comments about any activity or event going on in the section will not be entertained. Disrespectful comments will be deal accordingly and warnings will be given. In more severe cases, users will be permanently banned from the forum.

Originality is what the concern here: Credits must be given where it is due.
Users are welcome to post threads outside the forum, but credits MUST be given to the source’s original author. For instance, if you like to share a tutorial online and want to share it with other users, do give the source credits and seek for permission before posting. Do recognize also the creator of the Lightroom preset you used on your photos upon posting it.

10) Making Sensible Threads
Any Thread that contains same pic for multiple times or full of justs elfies will be considered as repeated post and will be deleted immediately. So we recommend you to attach the pics once and do not repeate them again and again.

11) Post at least 3 photos in a single thread
This is to prevent spam threads in the thread section. Be generous! Take more photos and share more!

13) Don't be too much vain to yourself :)
Threads full of selfies only will be considered as off-topic stuff and will be deleted without any prior notice.

14) Screenshot sharing
Attaching Screenshots in an album thread will be considered as voilation of Rules and for such activity user may get warn/ban.

15) Posting non-Mi phone is allowed, however... can be posted only when you want to do a comparison or something like that. The images you share here should be captured with any of xiaomi devices.

Note: Any kind of misbehavior, rough attitude, personal attacks, abusing, use of foul language, promotion of unauthorized propoganda or already illegal content will be dealt accordingly with deletions, warnings, editions, bans..
