I will delete my question later. How to remind a colleague about myself? Which option is correct?

  1. I just want to make sure you don't forget about (or on?) my request to send a photo.
  2. I would like to reconfirm that you still remember about (or on?) my request to sent the photo.

This is my personal request for work.

Could you please tell me: 'about' or 'on'?

'...a gentle reminder about (or on?) my request to send...'

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    Welcome to ELL! Questions and answers are meant to be written in a way that they can help more than just one person, so it would not be a good idea to delete your question once you get an answer. Asking for help phrasing general requests and responses can be on-topic here if you explain which part of what you've written you feel might not be correct. – ColleenV parted ways Dec 14 '18 at 16:31

    As a side note, deleting an answered question once you get what you seek is really discourteous to people who take the time to answer your question. – Eddie Kal Dec 14 '18 at 19:03

  • The fact that you say you will (try to) delete this later means that nobody has any incentive to answer it. – Jason Bassford Supports Monica Dec 14 '18 at 20:23

How you phrase your reminder may depend on whether the colleague is humoring you by sending a picture, or is fulfilling some company requirement. This advice is for the latter scenario:

Just a reminder to please send the photo I mentioned in my email of such and such date. The company requires blah blah blah ...

If it's a requirement, don't call it a request.

  • Of course Nick should not actually retain the "blah blah" part. – Chaim Dec 14 '18 at 17:38
