    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

    Hi Bozdar, and welcome to the forum.
    Let's wait and see what our admin/IT support can do.

    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.
