    were you to

    Good evening.
    Does the sentence If you were to come.../were you to come... mean if you happen to come?
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, they do.

    Yes, they do.

    Thank you very much! How can I start a post? Saying only Hi? or is it too informal?

    Re: were you to

    You don't need a greeting. You can start with your question. "Does the sentence ..."
    Also, many people here don't like "Thanks in advance". To thank someone (after they've helped you), click on the "Thank" button; don't write a new post just to thank someone.

    As Raymott said, just go ahead and ask your question like most of the other posters do.

    We haven't time for formality here.

    Re: were you to

    Is 'others' in post#5 a pronoun?

    Re: were you to

    Hi, OD.

    Well, I'm sure he meant 'the other posters'.
    It's just a small typo.

    Yes, it was. I've corrected it.
