    The first one is okay.
    The second one is not.
    This would also be okay: Chelsea, Everton, and Liverpool have been promoted.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You seem to have mistyped "Grumpy" for "I will comply with your request in the future".

    I'm not going to get into a pointless argument here, so this is the last post I'll make in this thread. Let me make one thing perfectly clear. If I wish to thank somebody for giving help, that is exactly what I will do. I frequent a LOT of forums, and this is the first time I've ever seen anyone try and prevent someone from posting to show their gratitude. That says a hell of a lot about you.
