    using but like that is correct?

    1/ I suggest everyone writes in English here. I don't suggest they change their nicknames to English.
    So , can I say like that?:
    a/ I suggest everyone writes in English here, but changes nickname to English.
    or
    b/ I suggest everyone writes in English here, not changes nickname to English.

    2/ a/ She is pretty, but she isn't gentle.
    b/She is a teacher, but she isn't a programer.
    Can I say like that?:
    a/She is pretty, but gentle.
    b/She is a teacher, but a programer.

    Best regards!

    1) I suggest everyone write in English here. I suggest they not change their nicknames (to (?) English)
    So , can I say it like this?:
    I suggest everyone write in English here, but not change his/her nickname.


    2)
    a) She is pretty, but she isn't gentle.
    b) She is a teacher, but she isn't a programmer.
    Can I say it like this?:
    a) She is pretty, but not gentle.
    b) She is a teacher, but not a programmer

    I hope I got it right.

    butdeptrai, 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 internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.
