    I can't speak for other members, but I would prefer that we deal directly with the people who are trying to learn, rather than with you as an intermediary. If they get help with their English direct from us, your time will be freed up to work on your own English, and you won't have to use these unreliable sources.

    I don't know what you mean by the blue underlined part above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It sounds like a healthy communal approach. But it doesn't solve the problem of using bad texts.

    We have an expression. We call it washing garbage. If something is garbage to begin with, there's nothing you can do to make it smell good.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I haven't heard of "washing garbage." Anyway I prefer "putting lipstick on a pig." It's so much more colourful.

    Here's a suggestion: gather round the computer with your friends and relations. click on 'Testing' at the top of this page and then 'Grammar Quizzes', and work through lots of those.
