    Prior to 04/10/13

    Hi guys,

    Please check "Are you calling for the date of service prior to 04/10/13 or after 04/10/13".

    Re: Prior to 04/10/13

    There is a vital punctuation mark missing from inside your quotation marks. The sentence starts "Are you ..." so what type of sentence is it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Prior to 04/10/13

    You have made the same punctuation mistake in both of your subsequent posts.

    He's helping you figure it out. Here's another hint: What is the punctuation mark you forgot in your two questions above?

    You need a question mark.

    Note that 4/10 is April 10 for me but October 4 for others.
    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.

    Charlie, one of the other moderators has made this point to you at least three times. If =O] or =O are meant to be emoticons, please stop using them. We have a good set of emoticons which can be accessed by clicking the button in the toolbar. Thanks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
