    correction of errors in the sentence

    A blend of remarkable pride and ineffable happiness rose within me when I saw my name at the top of the Informatics Teamís final list of participants for the National Contest.

    Are the words in bold correctly used? Is 'for' the correct preposition? Are there any other errrors?

    Many thanks.

    I would replace for with in. (They are participating in the contest. They are competing for honore.)

    (You may thank me now. )

    Hi RonBee

    I'm indeed very grateful to you for your help. These days, you are the only moderator who is very active in helping me.

    In the past it was Anglika, who was most active. She helped me a lot too and I appreciate her help very much. 3 big glasses of beer for you. (There no smiley for beer, unfortunately.)

    Hi RonBee

    There is no beer smiley, and yet you managed to get the two beers. How did you do that? Cut and paste from another forum?

    Clcik on: [More] (underneath the smileys) and you get more smileys.

    Hi RonBee

    I was not observant. Anyway thanks for your help again.

    Now I am giving you eight glasses of bear. Don't drive after drinking the eight glasses of beer. I think you will exceed the limit of alcohol permitted by the laws of your country.
