    No it's not at all correct. I am not going to correct it for you until you revise it using rules that you have been taught over and over again on this forum.

    Okay moderator.

    I revised it and put it in a new thread following the rules.

    Moderator's note. I have merged the two threads to avoid confusion. 5jj

    Is this your revised version? If so, I can't see any revisions. It appears to be identical to post #1.

    For the umpteenth time:

    Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
    Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    We understand that but, before we check anything else, we want you to write your sentences using correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    And if people cannot be bothered to at least try to follow our forum guidelines, then some of us will not be bothered to give up our free time to formulate responses. We give and take in this forum, not just take.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
