    Exclamation My native language was not listed on sign up page.

    Hello, Admin.

    I just joined the forum but I have to come here first for some help.

    During sing up, I was unable to find my native language in drop down list so I had to choose an other language (English) merely to sign up. I want to know, if it is possible for you to add Baluchi in your list of languages?

    Many thanks,
    Bozdar

    Re: My native language was not listed on sign up page.

    Teechar,

    You removed the comma after between hello admin. I checked it with Grammarly and it didn't show it as a mistake. Could you please elaborate the use of comma here?

    Many thanks,
    Bozdar

    See corrections above. You didn't write "salutation", but I added it to specify exactly where you needed help. In quoted dialog, you should use the comma: The patient walked in and said "Hello, Doctor. How are you?" Salutations (the top line of a letter or note that greets the reader) don't take a comma:

    Dear Nabby,

    Thanks for the pomegranates. Spunky loves them, and will be sitting up soon, I hope.

    Always set words and text you're talking about in italics or surround it in quotation marks.

    Re: My native language was not listed on sign up page.

    The list comes as is from the makers of the software. I am sorry it does not feature your language in the list. These lists grow over time and do try to be all-inclusive, so maybe a future update will include it. I will ask the webmaster if we can add individual languages to the list.

    Thank you very much. Until then, I'll keep waiting. I liked this platform and I wish, I had found UsingEnglish during my high school. Not only I want to improve my English skills here but also help others to get better.

    Many thanks.

    And, I will also try my best to keep the threads clean. It means I won't write a thanks-thread if I have clicked the "Thank Button" already.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
