    Wendy, I'm very confused as well.

    If you keep your posts regarding this topic in one thread it would be much easier to understand. Please.

    Neither of those is correct. Both have "you guys" as the object of a preposition "of" and the subject of a verb "are/were" at the same time. I would just remove the new verbs. :wink:

    Wendy, why don't you try just accepting the originalsentence instead of trying to change it? It's fine in the original.
