    Hello,

    I wanted to point that there have many post with incorrect grammar and even many threads have been started with their topics written incorrectly.This really spoils the look of the forum and gives the impression of untidiness and impatience in posting.Is there some way they can be edited perhaps by the mods ???

    Regards

    There is a clear insistence on maintaining proper language, grammar and punctuation and its there in the forum rules as well. The moderators try their best to maintain that, but the members are also requested to maintain good use of the English language as we have an international audience and trying to get many more of them.

    All members are requested to follow proper language, grammar, punctuation. Make sure caps are used where required and make all posts look professional and readable. Please write your posts like you used to write your English Language essays in school. It makes for better readability and also appeal. Thanks

    Dear Ms. Yang, please don't feel that the particular advice written by respected Moderator Yusuf is directed towards you or indicating towards you, I am very weak in English and have very limited Stock of Word ; here in this forum , I am learning how to write Correct and delicate English from the excellent posts written by many of the respected Senior Members. I think everybody may or should learn writing English while posting from other respected Member's post , irrespective of any nationality or gender. However, one advice may be given from my part , that choice of short sentence is best and use of simple English is the best option as not only they make the whole post understandable to every body but also the chances of making grammatical mistakes are very limited.

    Regards

    Also request you to not use those multiple dots between sentences. We have quite a few member who do that. It does not make for good reading. Also its against the rule.
    Please read rule # 17.
