While it's difficult to follow the convention most of the time, I prefer the following:

<type>: <description>

[optional body]

[optional footer]

For example:

No, it's not defined by me. Tapas Adhikary There are many articles on the web that suggest this format. We try to follow this at Hashnode.

So far, we haven't rejected any commit/PR for not following a standard. We are a very small team. We discuss things when the commit messages or PR are not very clear.
