Wendy, I'm very confused as well.

If you keep your posts regarding this topic in one thread it would be much easier to understand. Please. :)

Neither of those is correct. Both have "you guys" as the object of a preposition "of" and the subject of a verb "are/were" at the same time. I would just remove the new verbs. :wink:
