So it's expected to go back 10+ pages and revive a 2 year old thread on this forum board? That's a first.

Hey guys, need someone who's good at English here:

 

Is this something you can say:

 

Colleagues who help you if you are having a difficult time.

 

 

Now it should be about people going through a difficult period in their life (divorce, dead children, war, etc.) and as far as I know the above means you're having trouble finishing a certain assignment.

 

I thought it should be:

 

Colleagues who help you if you are going through a difficult/rough/hard time.

 

Are they both possible? Which one would you recommend?

The first one sounds incomplete. "Having a difficult time" is usually used in combination with an action (doing something), in this case coping with divorce, death, etc. So, the correct way to use the first variant would be "Colleagues who help you if you are having a difficult time coping\dealing with with X."

 

The second one is correct the way it is.

Both of them are fragmented/incomplete sentences. Don't use the first one for the reasons Cristian noted.

 

You could use "Colleagues can help you if you are going through a difficult/rough/hard time." That would work fine. You could use what you have in the middle of another sentence, too.  Maybe use "One of the best aspects of the workplace is that you can find colleagues who help you if you are going through a difficult/rough/hard time." Something like that.

Both of the sentences are incorrect. 'Colleagues who help you if you are going through a difficult/hard/rough time' sounds like a bad merging together of two meanings in one sentence, how about something a bit different and dramatic like 'If you are now going through a difficult/hard/rough time in your life, surround yourself with people who can make your life better.'

Thanks guys, but it's a statement in a psychological test and candidates have to rate how important the statement is to them (on a scale of 1 to 5), other statements are:

 

Being your own boss

Setting your own objectives etc.

 

So they are ment to be fragmented. Though "help" could possibly be replaced with "support", as you can't really "help" someone who's going through a difficult time.

 

Colleagues who support you if(when?) you are going through a difficult time.

Well... I'm not going to bother, I didn't see the last few pages so it may have turned into some utter spamfest while we were all inactive.

 

Can you still view it or it is quite literally in the bin.

Checked V section and it still exists. Wierd.

 

When I try to access it from my sig, it says the topic got binned.

The one in your signature is 641787 - The accessible one is 673307.

Oh I see, the code for the actual topic seems to have changed. The one in your signature is 641787, while the actual one is 673307.

Goddamn you GTAKid, frickin' ninja'd me.

Perhaps something got merged at one point and you didn't realise, thus had the old topic in your signature.

According to the registration page it's 26 characters. I'm not sure if the same applies to display names.

Hey I'm new. I just wanted to know why I can't post image links? Is it a post count thing?

Also minecraft sounds interesting I'd be down for that when it's ready.

I think there's an arbitrary post limit to prevent porn spammers, of which we have unfortunately had many.

What is the easiest and most discreet way to hire an escort? I know ive asked this question on here before. But that was a long time ago and I wasn't really serious about it back then by now I am serious about it and would like some help again.

Isn't it better just to get a girlfriend? Those are far better than to borrow some chick from someone else for an hour or so.

You say "just get a girlfriend" like its so easy....

@weasel: is that really all their is to it? I heard you have to go through some weird verification precess to prove your not a cop and stuff. So I wasn't sure. And where do you find these services? City pages?

So I bought this new phone and there's no mobile version button which I can press. How to switch to the mobile version of GTAF?
