I am a new member. This is my first post.
The serve has to be diagonal. It should be longer than the serve line, not extend the back gallery and not go in the side out.
Diagonal serve, longer than the serve line must not go to the back gallery and can go in the side. Which in in for doubles.
It is advised to do a short serve in doubles and a long serve in singles.
The contact point of the racket and the shuttle MUST be below your waist.

9.1.4 the server’s racket shall initially hit the base of the shuttle;
9.1.5 the whole shuttle shall be below the server’s waist at the instant of being hit by the server’s racket. The waist shall be considered to be an imaginary line round the body, level with the lowest part of the server’s bottom rib;
This imaginary line level with the bottom rib is difficult to discern in players wearing loose shirts.
This, in my experience (and by others more experienced than me) is generally accepted as level with the bent elbow - not the most accurate of determinations, but correct in most players. The only time this technique will fail is with disproportionate body types, as in long trunks, short legs and vice versa. As for example, such determination will most certainly fail with that American swimmer and multiple gold medallist Phelps, but then purists will argue, we can see his waist very clearly.
At the World Championships (Paris 2010), an experiment was conducted in an off-site hall with feedback using two umpires and players with varying heights. The goal was to demonstrate the feasibility of service error using the metric of maximum height mark. The outcome was that, there needed to be a better method to standardise the height marker using a level stand in determining where the shuttle was hit during serve, rather than the stick and level that were used.
Any service judge worth his/her seat will never ever call a service fault unless absolutely sure (not certainty) that the whole of the shuttle was below the waist when hit with racket during the service delivery.
The shuttle therefore can be held lower than the waist, or held higher, or tossed or dropped, depending on the server's preference, but when the racket hits it propelling it toward the receiver, it better be completely below the waist, and the racket better hit the head (cork) of the shuttle.

Give and take. Make it 1.5 meters. Just to facilitate those who like to hold shuttles near shoulder level.

A 'standard height marker' is a height in relation with the net height
When we talk about the 'standard height marker', we are talking about a height in relation with the net height. It is irrelevant how tall or short we players are.
It is also interesting to note that the net height is also fixed; no such thing like 'Let's lower the net down because we are shorter than the Zulus'.

Just rewrite the rules so that we can use overhead serves like tennis. Problem solve
