    Question Thanks for ur reminding -- is it ok?

    In a chatroom, a friend typed to me asking me to turn off my mic.

    I: Oh, Thanks for your reminding.
    He: reminder, not reminding.

    And in our further text conversations, I insisted that my expression was ok, but he declared that he seldom hear people say so.

    So here's my question: which one(s) of the following expressions is(are) better/correct?

    A: Thanks for your reminding.
    B: Thank you for the reminder.
    C: Thank you for reminding me.

    In my opinion, all of these three are correct. But which one is better or more frequently used? Or more colloquial, if there exists any nuance in this respect?

    Thanks for your kindly help !

    B and C are common , and so is "Thanks for reminding me." A, though, is ungrammatical.

    A: Thanks for your reminding.
    B: Thank you for the reminder.
    C: Thank you for reminding me.
    D: Thanks for reminding me.
