    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

      Yes, if you are asking a question, they are both correct if you are talking about multiple guides. If there is just one guide, drop the "s" on guides.

      Common English, however, would suggest something like:

      Selection Criteria for the Best Weight Loss Guides

          Why don't you guys act as member moderators?
          I never see you trying to correct people, posting in wrong forums, self promotion, advertising etc? Do you even report spam?

          Just curious...
          Its a simple question and could arguably make a big difference in his response to whatever it is he is selling if it is grammatically correct.

          Sometimes people just need what they are asking for, sometimes not, its just some troll posting up a keyword post. Sometimes its just a relief from the barrage of solo ads, and teespring posts.

          I report spam all the time.

          There's too much negativity and self-promotion going on everywhere ... I'd prefer to combat it with positive helpful insight if I can. Sometimes a post will get me a little riled up and I'll strike out a bit - but hopefully not too often.

          I'd rather be in the game than one of the referees (mods).

    Sorry my poor English and Thanks for your help,
    Look OK to me. Depending on the usage you might not need the question marks, but the grammar itself is correct.

      Absolutely. My favorite George Carlin line paraphrased as best I can (showing my age here)

    I report spam a lot... I have reported 6 tonight so far.

    As for being moderators, the new owners decide who gets to do that. We have no say.

    Captain here. Decided to leave this one alone even though they may sound trollish to senior members, it has some merit to be a legit query. OP's not promoting something: just asking a little help from seasoned and well-versed native english-speaking members of the Forum about their H1's, taglines and whatnots. Non-english speakers are frowned about here in the forum by some just because they sound nonsensical in context. At least OP's trying here in this thread. Someone may just as well wanted this to be removed or moved to Copywriting subforum, but that's a big no as they would devour the OP the moment they step in their territory. Here's hoping we could be more lenient with these kind of members.

    I hope my reason is enough for you, Theo.

      Yeah, no worries Captain
      I 'm not fussed about OP's English, IMO he posted his query in the wrong forum but then again my opinion has led me astray many times

    Hey Salesgurus, that is the best signature I have seen since I joined this great forum. It certainly makes people scratch their heads when they read:

    This forum is 'where warriors talk about making money'.

    To ctoyun, his question was about making money...specifically, him making money, by using proper grammar in his sales copy.

    I think it's commendable, given the number of people (for whom English is not their first language) who obviously make no effort whatsoever to do so.

    And we all know how professional that looks.
