    Re: thanks for assistance.

    Think about how far you went to do or achieve something, some of which may have been negative.

    Welcome to the forums, xuchen hou.

    Please note the correct way to ask a question:

    Please note also that a better title would have been 'consider the lengths you went to'.

    Always capitalise I and the first word of every sentence.

    There is no need to make a new post to say "Thank you". Just click the "Like" button on a post which you found helpful. Please look at my amendments to your post above.

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Check your spelling before you post. I am sure you know that the word is "thanks" not "thi​nks".

    I am not sure what you mean with your final sentence. You have to log in to this site in order to read posts which have been made since your last visit but that has nothing to do with your "capability in English".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
