    Small steps. There is much to learn. Please see the changes made.


    When starting a post or ending a post, it's always nice to have a greeting and a thanks.


    Cheers

    Re: sentence

    Florasar, your profile says you are an English teacher. I think that must be a mistake that you need to amend, judging by the standard of your written English in your post.

    Please submit work for correction to the Editing & Writing Topics forum.

    I disagree with Haniballl; a greeting and thanks are unnecessary. Just click the Like button when you get an answer you find helpful.

    Having a greeting and thanks in the first post will help learners learn just as much as any reply will. It also teaches a certain etiquette that's expected when communicating in English.

    Personally, I detest the 'like' feature.

    I only use it because it's the only way this site will allow me to show my appreciation.

    A 'please' and/or 'thank you' in the original post are welcome, but greetings are not part of the etiquette of most Q & A forums.

    As Rover has explained so many times, “Instead of sending your thanks in a separate message, just click the Like button please.

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.”


    Rover got his 'please' and 'Thank you' in, without cluttering up the thread with a time-wasting extra post.
