    Can you please explain the meaning of this line

    "This is an engineering forum. The engineering solution is to find the redundancy in your original data and not put it in the message in a first place.

    Welcome to Using English.

    Where did you read this? I don't understand the part about putting "in the message in a first place."

    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.

    If it's a reply from an engineering forum, ask them what they mean.

    My interpretation is that this person is telling you to check your own work better before asking for help on the forum.
